New Mountain Textures v6.0 1.6.x-1.31.x
This mod replaces textures for mountains and terrain around the map of ATS. If you like taking cool pictures and want to take a fresh look at the world of ATS, then this mod is for you! From mountains and deserts in California to Grand Canyon and red rocks in Arizona, for a more realistic and diverse look.
FYI: the screenshots for this mod have been taken without graphics mods, brightness set on 40% and Color Correction turned on. Alongside with my other mods: Enhanced Vegetation, Realistic Roads and New Mexico Mountain Textures. I really recommend you use all of the mentioned mods together for the best experience ;)
New in v6.0:
- Some drastic changes to a lot of textures. Generally, it all looks more realistic now.
- A lot of textures are selected in such way that it gives an illusion of the landscape being one smooth, merging surface, rather than a bunch of different pieces.
- New texture for the Grand Canyon.
- Terrain textures have been re-touched.
- New textures for mountains that are further from the road.
- Terrain textures that are far from the road are replaced with textures based on satellite images.
NOTE: I’m sorry if some of you get a little frustrated by complete replacement of some textures, but the goal of this mod is to create a more realistic feel of the landscape in the game and it’s hardly achievable at once. The point of this mod is to seek for the best looking textures for environment, to make them “harmonize” with each other and that can be achieved by replacing some of the textures throughout the versions of the mod.
Thanks for understanding :)
