AmpolX Texture packs Repackaged

Created by AmpolX

This compilation assembled by Psymon

=================

Description: for the Repackaged Textures

=================

The sub-packages contained in this archive are a compilation of various retexture released made by AmpolX. Currently AmpolX is away and uninvolved with the modding scene and gave permission for his texture packs to be uploaded. Primarily this permission was given to me and I've been hesitant to do so. Recently he made it more common knowledge that permission is given and actually widen that to others doing the same. My hope here is to provide a central point for these works to minimize the chance that many will be uploaded separately or without care.

To quote AmpolX: "As I said before, I have no time in my current future for a proper release by myself. I have just left it up to the community to share and distribute files under the table as most have done. Yes I did find a few sites who had hosted my work without permission and so far have neglected to respond to my emails about removing them. I'm not leaving it up to anyone to upload and manage my work because that is a big undertaking that should be done by myself. To close a long disputed argument, if community members want to host my work then so be it. The task of caring for comments and updates and even making sure the work is up-to-date is on their shoulders. As long as proper credit is given to myself then i see no quarrel."

Each subpackage was a separate release.I have attempted to reconstruct each sup-pacakge to include the material as it was presented in the original download. The exception being that I embedded the docs and screen shots in such a way as to make installing with BAIN without complication.

Some of these retextures were only available for a very short time and and often in threads on the BGS forums. A separate download will contain textures that AmpolX advised people not to use due to their being unoptimized textures sure to hurt frames per second.It is possible that a few of the sub-packages included here are also unoptimized. I didn't take exhaustive notes on what was problematic.

Description: for the various unoptimized textures

=================

The packages contained in this archive various retexture released made by AmpolX. Currently AmpolX is away and uninvolved with the modding scene and gave permission for his texture packs to be uploaded. Primarily this permission was given to me and I've been hesitant to do so. Recently he made it more common knowledge that permission is given and actually widen that to others doing the same. My hope here is to provide a central point for these works to minimize the chance that many will be uploaded separately or without care.

The packages contained in this download are of texturing work that AmpolX abandoned. He had received several reports that they were optimized and then removed them from public access. He later advised people not to use these textures as they may have a negative effect on your install. Mostly this would be increased texture memory being used and lower frames per second.

These are presented if others have the knowledge to improve upon them. Keep in mind that, at this time, this does not mean that permission is given to upload altered versions of them.

Installation

=================

This package was made for the use of BAIN installing. If Unfamiliar with this method see whichever of these sites helps the most:

Manual installing: Simply move the files from the various subpackages to the corresponding Oblivion\data\textures folder.

More on info on manual installing can be found here:

No OMOD is planned and hence OBMM is not supported.You could make one by dumping all the contents of the sub-packages and making an OMOD for that yourself. More information here:

Of note to make the download smaller I compressed to Maximum using 7zip. You may want to extract and recompress using fastest and non-solid in order to get faster response from BAIN.

Usage Permissions

================= Licensing/Legal: ================= AmoplX asked that credit be given to him. To be clear no permission has been given to re-use these textures in other works. If you want to do that contact AmpolX as I have no answer for you and cannot give permission. I ask that instead of re-uploading that you instead link to this download. These textures packs are presented as is. If you fee

User Feedback

Thanks to AmpolX for the work put into these, and Psymon for taking on the responsibility.

Psymon, may I be the first to say "No screenshots?" :oblivion::D

DR and Who gave me tips on that subject here if you wish to do the same

All thanks to Ampolx and Psymon. The pack doesn't include the cups and bowls mod (28808 on tesnexus before it was removed). Someone must have a copy and surely it is now ok to upload it?

Thanks Ampolx and Psymon for making these textures available again. I've read about them and seen a few screenshots, but never had the opportunity to try them out. So thanks! :thumbsup:
