What I did:
  • Reduced 4k textures to 2k (with exceptions).
  • Reduced 2k textures to 1k (with exceptions).
  • Reduced 1k normals and speculars to 512 (with exceptions).
  • Kept 1k diffuse at 1k resolution.
  • Reduced 512 Terrain to 256 resolution.
  • Kept all other 512 and under at normal resolution.
  • Changed lightness, sharpened, reduced resolution, desaturated, replaced color, selective color, changed hue, changed saturation, black and white, HDR toning  and/or other things to all files.
  • Converted non-alpha files that were saved as alpha to non-alpha.
  • Saved non-alphas as BC1 , BC3 or BC5. Saved alphas as BC3 or BC7 formats.
  • All files have been sharpened.
  • Generated new mipmaps for all files that have mipmaps.
  • All 40,962 textures have been modified and saved with Photoshop.
  • Any files I keep at the original resolution I still modify in Photoshop.
  • Archived all files in DDS optimized archives with custom single mip chunk area.

Mainly used Photoshop with Intel Texture Works plugin.

Batched what I could using a programmable mouse, PS4 controller, wireless mouse and keyboard.

I did the rest manually.

I did this all from bed, doing what I could, when I could. (I have a autoimmune disease with heart and lung problems.)

Please do not use in any repacks.
