  • INTRODUCTION

I made this mod based on my previous one But Decided to have more of freedom while working the textures. Thinking this way, I've decided to publish it as a new mod. Since is quite different from my previous one, this mod is not compatible with him.
Nearly everything is retextured, I tried to maintain Hightown cleaner, and more like a noble area of the city. Lowtown more detailed and the interiors too. 

  • INSTALLATION - READ THIS PART FOR NO FURTHER PROBLEMS

Unzip the files you want to download and Drop the .ERF into--packages/core/override

Assure in not having any mods that can change anything from the game, including, the city or outside of Kirkwall.


I highly recommend installing The LAA patch for DA2: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/large-address-aware.112556/
So the game can use more memory avoiding further problems.


  • READ THIS CAREFULLY

If you use the game on the Very High quality you will get the fake d3d11, which will make some textures look weird. You can, however, use the d3d11 features without activating them. Follow the steps. Have in mind, it's not required, but highly recommended and will improve your fps.

The First step - Open your game and choose High quality--Not the Very High--Then close the game. Also, activate the TexturePack on the options. 


The Second step - Go to your--Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age 2\Settings--Open the file DragonAge.ini with any editor you want and activate the effects you wish. But to have the best quality, change the lines if 0 to 1 like the example below.

EnableSSAO=1
EnableHighQualityBlur=1
AnisotropicFilteringLevel=16
AntialiasingLevel=4 or 8



  • RECOMMENDED MODS FOR INCREASING THE HD EXPERIENCE

HIGH-QUALITY FACE TEXTURES FOR DRAGON AGE 2 - Fantastic face texture for characters and NPCs.

VAELSMOD - Any mod from him, from hairs to armors. Just grab them.

Unique Face Textures for Companions - In my humble opinion, A must have.

  • FINAL NOTES:

I couldn't find any broken bug or anything related. There's only one small bug in Hightown, but hard to notice. The roofs share the same textures as the missing ground, so, if you keep staring at that, you'll see the roof textures in there. But there's no way to avoid it.
