    Looks crispy! Plenty of bump mapping going on. More contrast too. Very enjoyable.

    The grassland textures are brown, however... Is this normal?

    I’m playing continents plus with the Shoshones. I just settled a city

    Oops. The game crashed upon meeting a leader with the pathfinder!

    Because of the crash, I started a new game and now grasslands appear to be green.
    (Sorry for the multiple posts)

    Im sorry for yet another reply..
    If zoomed in, the terrain looks very smudgy. Stuff like marsh especially. Just a but blurry and smudgy. If zoomed out to ‘bout 75% and up, it’s super crispy.
    Texture quality is set to high (default) in settings

    There are different textures for the 4 different "continents," and the colors vary (as they do in the base game).

    The original textures are only a collection of green, brown and grey. Therefore it is not noticeable when you zoom in that there is no resolution. Personally, I find it a step back when you uninstall the Texture Package. I have got used to the weaknesses of the engine, unfortunately there is nothing more that we can do.

    One thing would be possible, to increase the displacement effect, but this results in an very rough terrain. Have a look at the first few pages of this thread. In my opinion the current state is a good balance between details and vanilla game feeling.

    Use this in your configuration, it's a good setting for enhanced textures imho.
    Code:
    Minimum Zoom Level = 15.000000

    Using this with the communitas map, it seems to generate only african terrain.

    idk if its just me but v12 looks really bad compared to v11. very smudgy. Like, something is obviously not working as intended. I went back to v11 and it looks good again.

    I see that it depends on zoom level, dx9/dx11 settings and tesselation, the detail and quality of the textures as seen onscreen. The v12 is perfect given you calibrate it right.

    @Estebanium Any plans on further work for snow textures?
