About this mod

Octagon is a texture batch tool, it allow you to change format, size, compression, backup original files, apply GMIC filters to large directories of textures. Made for SSE but also work for F4, and any titles which use DDS as texture format. Use it to reduce VRAM usage, or if you're a modder, use it to properly format your textures packs.
