Wow guys I've been totally amazed by the popularity of this pack !
Already 1.46Gb of bandwith used, each download costs 28 mb.

It means the pack has been downloaded 52 times in less than 24 hours.
Totally crazy for a simple WIP thread lost in the forum. I can't imagine
what it will be when Wolfire will blogpost about it !

I upgraded my hosting : I had 2gb bandwith, now I have 800 gb allowed at 100 mb/s.
I'll need it with my new portfolio and I didn't realize how much bandwith
is needed, thanks you, there won't be any downloading issues.

For a WIP pack, it's amazing. I'm really proud to see you're interested in

"Textures HD 12:30"
Windows doesn't allow you to have colon in a folder name, that's reserved for file media selection.
But it's easy to work around-- just get into the folder before unzipping and drag the files from there to another folder you already created.
Also, the zip contains duplicate empty files for all folders and subfolders. I've never seen this before. O.o

Packaging bugs aside, that's a GREAT PACK! \o/
Lugaru looks so much better now! <3 Thanks Tims!

Thanks for the feedback.

Mac OS X has a disturbing behavior when creating zip files, it copies invisible files specifics to Mac OS X. That's why you see these when unzipping on your PC. I'll made a clean archive using YemuZip that compresses folders while ignoring all mac-related files : it's perfect for sharing zip with Windows users. Sorry for inconvenience.

Thank you for your work. I haven't tried the textures in-game yet, but the screenshots are promising.

Actually I'm lost.

In my spare time I'm seeking for new sound effects. I want to keep them as close as possible to the original sounds, but what an hard task. And after some experiments, I was asking myself : Do I really want to denaturate Lugaru ?

At first, I just wanted to increase the visual quality of the game, while keeping its soul, its atmosphere, and the original artist's intentions. Modifying all the assets of the game is NOT what I wanted to do at the beginning, because it won't really be Lugaru, the one you all know. It will be "Lugaru by Tims". And I definitly don't want that.

By the way, you've eaten 9.17Gb of bandwith, and that means Lugaru HD has been downloaded 340 times. Wow. I never expected so much interest. Thanks again to everybody, check this thread soon for the final release !

Well, we're not changing the gameplay at all by making all new assets. i'm trying to pull a bunch of good models together for the 1.5 we're working on, but even with new sounds, models, textures and storyline, the game is the same. plus, david and the guys always talk about how user created content is their main interest, so if we make new stuff and pull it together for a big update, then it's cool. i get what you said, and i totally agree, but we're not changing the game engine, or the way you play the game, we're just making something new so that nobody can get bored. :D
BTW: i think your textures are the most important part of the 1.5 update that we're taking a stab at.
