“Las Plagas” Mining Area and the Novistadores’ Cave (r220, 223, 224, 21d)

Today, a complete chapter 4-2 update!

As you may know, we are correcting texture mapping issues as we go through each area. The mining area is a complete mapping mess. For now I’ve tried to fix major issues, but there will be further improvement in the next revision stage. I want to say thank you again to Son of Persia, a member from the RE modding community. All 3d edits are possible thanks to the tools he developed. 🙂

Almost all real life assets / original hi-res textures were found for the ornamental elements of the cave area (lucky us!)

    Wow, I’m really speechless.
    You (I mean both) are going out of your way, fixing even model problems.
    I already donated a little (10 bucks), but now I feel almost bad because you guys really deserve more!
    I’ll certainly donate more as soon as I can :D!

    Finally! Finally! The update i was waiting for! The lava pool floor! that huge open holes always bothered me since the first time i seen then at the PS2 version back in the day!

    I really can’t wait for the full release! I deleted my UHD saves so i can enjoy this game with your work from the very first second <3

    i can’t tell by the pictures but i think that it would be better to use cut metal mesh http://www.steellong.cn/high/utp/wz397_1.jpg rather than laced wire fence http://www.chainlinkfencing.org/upfiles/image/diamondwiremesh1.gif for the industral parts

      Thank you! I see your point and I agree. So I surely will change this texture to something resembling the picture in your link 🙂 It looks more stable and solid

    Thank you!

    Looking real nice guys =)
    However,just small “nit-picking” here regarding room 223D the Las Plagas Rock
    In Original state the “Fossil” looks correct,like captured in stone. It is bumpy/outward in appearance,like the Parasite was covered in stone.

    But with your Re-creation,the Parasite looks imbedded deep into the stone,even casting shadow…maybe try to find some real-life Fossil sample at local museum; to get the best look.

    Hi togan!
    I see what you mean and I had the same thinking. The thing is… I did use a real life fossil to recreate this texture. What made me think if this isn’t suposed to be a fossil after all!
    Or maybe it’s just a matter of how the light is applied at differnet angle/intensity on the source image Capcom used to create this texture compared to mine.
    We”ll think about this in the next revision stage 🙂

  12. Alvare says:

    I think the gray ladder in the boss fight area still looks bad and out of place. Sorry.

    • albert says:

      No problem! Yes, I agree. It’s too bright and flat.
      Buuuut… Maybe it was done this way on purpose: the player sees the ladder easily while the crazynees of fighting 2 Gigantes at the same time thanks to that texture.
      Anyway, let’s see what we will do with that texture in the next revison stage… 😉

      • Alvare says:

        I’m glad you agree. 🙂
        Indeed it looks flat. Heck, is the uvw even correct or is it a mess?
