Name  Real Paving Stones, Kerbs/ Curbs & Bricks.
Author  NeilMc
Submitted / Updated  02-12-2008 / 02-13-2008
Category  Terrain
TextureFormat  Obsidian Standard
NWN2Game  All
High resolution (1024x1024 pixels) real Polished Paving Stones, Kerbs (or Curbs, if you are American) & Brick, replacing the quite frankly hideous 'vanilla' textures (512x512 pixels) found around house and shop front walkways in Neverwinter. The textures have been designed to vary in colour from location to location, house to house, to add much needed variety and realism to Neverwinter.

The textures are 'normal'/ 'bumpmapped' at both texture and tile level and are in .dds format.


1) once the 3 .Rar files have downloaded, navigate to your 'Override' folder found in : C:\Program Files\Atari\Neverwinter Nights 2\Override
(subtitute 'C' for your hard-drive letter).

2) Place the 3 RAR files in the 'Override' folder.

3) Unzip each RAR file (using WinRar or 7Zip) into your 'Override' folder. You can right-click the RAR file and select the 'Extract Here' option.

A folder called 'Placeables' should appear, (if it does not already exist,) to which will be added 10 new '.dds' files. Play NWN2.

BUGS: None known.

CREDITS: Original textures fromm a copyright free source, reworked, 'colour tinted' and normal-mapped by myself. Please ask before inclusion in any other game mods thanks.

COMMENTS: Any problems let me know. Votes and feedback appreciated. I have a lot more textures I've been working on, so let me know if you would like to see more posted up.

I like to say retexuring takes talent and time, but I only posses the latter.

You however, seem to have them both down pat!

Better than the vanilla textures for sure.

Thanks NeilMc.

I'm using all of your submissions in my Override and they definitely change the look of NWN2 (especially on a high PC). Keep it up. Your submissions are another reason why NWN2 is so great.

Thanks again and I'll be watching for your future cool Mods!

@ tokyo2040,
My apologies for not responding sooner... Yes I'll look at the armor (armour) soon, thats a good suggestion thanks.

ps. Just posted up a grass mod to work with my All NWN2 Terrain Bump-Mapped Mod- Check it out!

This is really good! I was wondering whether you could some of the armor stuff as well, like some of the cloth armor.

@ Marlboro Man
I've recently noticed that each patch updates a range of files- including graphics, so if u patched recently, that could be the reason! I'm also being careful as to take this into consideration with my mods- checking their latest versions first before altering anything!..PS got MotB today, so I may look at that soon, but I believe the graphics are a general step so who knows...

I must be seeing things then. :))))) Or seeing things I had not really noticed before. ;-) That's what I love about this game. :-)

Posted by NeilMc at 2008-02-15 16:54:19    
@ Marlboro Man.... Ah I think I was a bit too cryptic there! I haven't posted what I've been working on yet... it involves adding textures to existing items/placeables, clothing, armour etc... I HAVE done the cloaks but I haven't posted them yet!
More to come...

@ All-
working on a mod for the Street-Lamps as a side project... Got some nice amospheric misty effects glowing through down-angled pools of light, but I've hit a snag...

a) I don't know how to get them to cast light and shadows, ie., like the Torch....

b) I don't know how to script them to turn off in daylight and switch on at night...

I'm only now looking at the toolset, so bit if a noob, any advice gratefully welcomed! Thanks in advance...

I sure did notice the extra detail on the cloaks. Ya missed one though. The cloak Cormick gives you when you join the watch. ;-)

I like your work very much. It's like stepping into a new world again. And since you did not elaborate on exactly what all you modified, I am seeing stuff I had not noticed before, and wonder if that was something you changed or I just never noticed before. Thanks for making me take my time and just look around. ;-)

Sweet stuff. Just made it to Neverwinter again, and it looks great. ;-) Keep it up. ;-)

Posted by NeilMc at 2008-02-13 18:38:36    
I'm surprised nobody has noticed the extra detail on the cloak and shoulder to your own game.... I have a major surprise in the works!

Many thanks from the comments and votes- its the main thing that makes posting mods wothwhile for me!! Again, watch this space....more!
