Midrange Terrain Texture Replacement [BETA]

by
Bad Benson


Description:
the goal for this addon is to provide a texture replacement for the default midrange texture.
my priority was to create something pleasing to the eye that resembles what you see close up and thus creates a seamless transition between close and mid/long range.


Installation:
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_name

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

Place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Move the active version into the "off" folder and the one you want to replace it with into the addons folder to switch between versions.


Included files:

Known issues:
Be aware that some versions have high contrast and were created on demand. they will apply the strong details to far away roads and parts of the airport concrete.
To avoid that use one of the lighter versions. that will make this effect a lot less noticeable. i personally use "orig2", "strong" and "sharp2" the most.


Changelog:
v27_08_13
- made working with Altis

v2013-29-04
- new signatures and a new server key

v2013-20-04
- updated all files with a smaller config that only replaces the texture path
- renamed the _1024 version to _orig2 to avoid confusion about the resolution of the textures (all versions should have the same resolution)
