this mod changes pebbles' model, textures, sounds, spell effects w/ custom materials + impact effects etc
there are 4 versions of this now with different texture resolutions, higher resolution = more detail (more on that below)so ill try to describe the differences
256x256 Texture Size
256x256 is what all default HoN models use when the texture quality is set to 'high' in the graphic options,
itll be just as detailed as all the other hon models which is not bad at all, even though it is the lowest of the 4.
download this if your computer is on the low-average curve and you want to preserve fps
512x512 Texture Size
512x512 is normal HD quality in HoN, if youre using other HD models already you have some idea of what to expect,
it obviously looks a lot better than 256x256, and as such it also requires a little bit more resources
1024x1024 Texture Size
1024x1024 at some point the hon engine starts to compress high resolution textures, i dont know exactly where the cutoff begins but its safe to say that 1024x1024 is above the threshold
what this means is that when your camera is fully zoomed out some of the detail will be lost,
if you zoom in on the hero the quality will 'pop back' but thats not the perspective you play the game at
thats not to say that all the quality is lost, on my settings i can see a difference between 1024 and 512 zoomed out, but it will depend heavily on your resolution and filtering settings
2048x2048 Texture Size
2048x2048 is completely overkill, when you are zoomed out you will not see any difference between 2048 and 1024, but when you are zoomed in on the model the quality will be amazingly crisp,
the main purpose of this is to have something very pretty to look at when youre dead/waiting for creeps or whatever, i recommend at least inspecting the model in practice mode because its definitely impressive stuff

Wow, did you make this 100%?
This is incredible work
I <3 Efel.
If I don't respond to your pm, it's because I'm currently processing and evaluating other pms.
Whoa man. This looks slick.
good job ofc
fun things and whatnot.
it has its original bones from tera, then i added the hon _bone_ series and those work great,
however since it already has its own native Bip01- set i couldnt get the hon Bip01 (no -) series to stay intact after exporting, they would just vanish
the bip01 bones are mostly used for body trails such as pebbles toss trail effect, there arent too many of these since most of them use position values off _bone_centerofchest
looking forward new overkill hd models from tera! let it be hammer
