This is the real mat_picmip -10. I figured out how to manually force textures to that type of picmip. That being said, some textures still could use a little clean up so I did modify some to an extent. This includes taking some tip textures and giving them a lower picmip.

Now you may be asking yourself whats mat_picmip?

Well, matpicmip was one of the most well known visual "gains" possible in tf2. Matpicmip changed the compression of the textures used in game. The command still exists in the game as follows "Mat_picmip

" (numbers went from -10 to 4, -10 being the best quality and 4 being the worst.) However it is locked between 2 and -1. This pack will not only unlock -10 but also improve textures in various other ways as well.

I will continue to update this mod and add higher quality textures.

So I will be taking requests for any textures anyone would want me to give the "mat_picmip -10 treatment" to if it wasn't in any previous release.

Some screenshots for the before and after pictures were provided by the TF2 Wiki and video provided by Fibonacci Sequence.





Warning: If you have issues with some textures looking lower quality before turning high quality then I advise you to set the command "mat_mipmaptextures" to 0. This should fix such an issue.

Be sure to check out some of my other mods.

    Can I choose all categories (and sub-categories) at the same time?

    Example of what I'm asking:
    mat_picmip_-10_v7.rar\Mat_Picmip -10\Mat_picmip -10 Categories\Weapons
    There are two files
    Can I download both?
    Your supposed to put both files in. The mod is split into multiple versions to make loading a bit faster.

    Oh, ok. Thx m8. By the way, where can I download the Bot Weapon (and cosmetic) randomizer mentioned on your Bot Overhaul Mod?

    Below the normal download link.

    Umm...when i type in the console "mat_picmip -10", the texture quality stays in "Very High"!
    I really need help with that.

    You don't have to. Just install the mod. It will automatically set your textures to ultra high. (even though it says very high)

    then it's my eyes that don't notice the new textures :/

    it's probally because instead of checking from far away, i just slam my face into the walls xD


    Remember that this doesn't work on valve servers.That could be why.
