Daggerfall Remaster Enchanted Art Mod

What is included in the D.R.E.A.M?
DREAM RC6 is divided into the 11 selectable DFMOD packages:

ByteMixers "Daggerfall Remastered Music Project" is the official Dream music. Preview: https://soundcloud.com/j-bot-1/sets/dag ... ject-final

Based on Pangos "Cleaned Sound Clips (CSC)" viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1692 but further improved - CSC were originally based on Helegads "Tamriel Mixdown" viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1333&hilit=tamriel+mixdown Very clean and mastered sound.

All ingame cinematics have been up-scalled or recreated and the original sound was cleaned.
Thanks "Phredreeke" for upscaling the missing videos and "Pango" for cleaning the sound and converting vids for Linux.
Ive created the two "dream" videos anew and added a music which was not used ingame previously.
All vids were remuxed with the new sound, and further tweaked... Daggerfall intro videos by "Rhymer".

Mix of brand new textures and upscales of the old ones with added detail maps on top of them, all textures are materialized with combination of normal maps, height maps, oclussion, roughness and smoothness settings.

Just every sprite in-game, all ingredients, trees, dungeon props, furniture, animals, loot piles, spell effects, artifacts, blood splatters.. up-scaled, redrawn in many stages, lots of manual input

Handheld - 2 parts
The 1st person handheld weapons, all of them! This is a result of cooperation with Megaten, who created lots of weapons. Ive added their magic variants, staffs and bows plus some tweaks of colors/brightness, bug fixes and optimalization

All animated enemies and their corpses have been AI up-scaled and manually tweaked for a best vanilla-like look, thanks MasonFace!
Corpses have been adjusted to match the living MOBs size and colours more precisely, correcting some vanilla bugs as well

Up-scaled, manually redrawn in many stages, vanilla based look

Towns Folk, AI Up-scaled, manual touch for close up frames by Adrinus

Up-scaled, manually tuned. Most of the Royals and VIPs have new high detail portraits

Loading screens, Inventory, Maps, Character backgrounds, All kinds of buttons & tabs, Spell book, Log book, Compass etc

Thank you guys, all your contributions took the mod to another level, plus it was a motivation at the later stages of development for me to push and make this insane thing a reality. Its the biggest modding project I ever did and Im happy for everyone who joined in.. feels much better to me, when its a community effort... epic sh1t, thank you!

If anyone feels like donating, I would indeed be VERY grateful! It took me years to create this..
But the DREAMing is free for everybody and that will never change ;)
Thank you!

Hello. First post here, but I'm very excited to see a community growing around Daggerfall again.

Unfortunately, I seem to have run into a problem. When I have these textures running, the villagers "flicker" as they walk around town. That's the only way I can think to explain it, I would guess that some of the walking textures aren't being rendered?

I don't know if the problem is on my end or not, but it works just fine when I'm using the default sprite models, so I figure this is the best place to let someone know.

Everything looks fantastic otherwise though, thanks for all the hard work! :D

Tested on PreAlpa 0.5 #124 02-Jul-18 X64
So the town NPCs blink, but the guards don't, when texture compression is on.
But if it's not, it crashes in some dungeons (scourge barrow for one).
Otherwise it works fine.
Thanks for finishing up the terrain stuff, looks awesome..

It seems like turning on compression is the best way to go, so just take the NPCs walking around town out of the folder for the time being.
Unless you want the npcs, then turn it off, and take the monster and enemy sprites out.

Hey, why don't you just get the 3d walls and stuff from the pack I made, and make it KOW extreme texture pack ?
Its mostly your stuff anyways, that way people don't get confused, and i can just tell em to get your stuff.
I just think some people might like the 3d walls, it is pretty...
