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

Turn off compressed textures in the Daggerfall Unity configuration :) And welcome to the forums!
Try the first Daggerfall Unity Quest Pack with roughly 210 all-new quests.
I write quests but have no technical knowledge.

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...
