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?

Mat_picmip was one of the most well known visual "gains" possible in tf2. Mat_picmip changed the compression of the textures used in game. The command still exists in the game but its now locked to certain values so one can no longer make the texture quality as good as it could be.

If you want to know more about mat_picmip then I suggest the tf2 wiki.

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


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.

    How did you keep get the ultra textures working? Ive tried alot and when you check the original texture files they are in ultra high quality but then get modified when going ingame. It would really help to know!

    [EDIT] : After experimenting alot, I finally found a way to crack the lock. I simply tried taking one of the texture files from the original vpk folder and then put em in a custom folder,

    then I had to export them as a jpg file.
    Then I imported the jpg file back into vtf edit and made it back to a vtf file, only with some minor changes in the settings. But now the lod settings are gone and thats what I think is restricting me from keeping the high quality.

    Testing it ingame, the texture file had the ultra high quality, with this I can add more high quality files than the ones in the mod to try reviving ultra high even more.

    The download file seems to be corrupt. when using Winrar I get the error "Unexpected End of Archive". When trying to extract it I get the error "This file is corrupt". I've attempted t download it numerous times over multiple days, each to the same result.

    Please fix it.

    I love this mod, and how it has a TF2 TIP style! But there's one thing I always wanted...
    Can you make Zombie Scout's pants blue too? I want him to look like TF2 TIP Scout...

    I still wonder why valve removed this setting on a mainly PC game.

    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.
