[Mod] Vurt's Gothic II Texture Pack
Vurt's Gothic II Graphics Overhaul

Current features (v0.7):

* Works for Gothic 2 NotR and "vanilla" Gothic 2. I recommend using NotR since i've added many graphical improvements to the addon.

* New meshes to improvements the look of the natural environment. Plants, trees / tree stumps, grasses, mushrooms etc. Old World has been given extra care since many of the meshes there were extremely blocky.

* The default version has very few different trees and other plants, this mod ups the amount of different pines, conifers and plants.

* Improved herbs. In vanilla Gothic 2 the herbs are often stuck too deep into the ground, it looks ugly and sometimes the mesh is almost completely hidden. This mod brings them up a bit further and most has been given a slight graphical update.

* New textures for landscape, architecture, monsters, blood… Some of the clothes, armors and weapons are also enhanced or changed completely.

* New water. 80 frames of animation (original is 10 frames).

* Resculpted rocks and cliffs that are much larger, clouds and sometimes trees are added to the tops.

* New rain, sun, skies (sun is still experimental).

* Only aesthetics, no gameplay changes.

* 600+ new textures, 60+ New or improved models




Comparison screens



Drag/drop the .vdf into /data (example: C:\Steam\steamapps\common\gothic ii\Data)
Copy the Gothic.ini if you want my fog, sky colors and tweaked settings. If your water is flashing you might need to use this file (take a backup of your old Gothic.ini file first!). This files goes into C:\Steam\steamapps\common\gothic ii\system



My Gothic.ini (use if you get flickering water):

You should either start a new game OR reload the first map (by going to any other map and then coming back to it) to avoid missing trees and edits i've done to the map.

My recommended Nvidia settings.

Supersampling is important for leaves and other textures that uses an alpha channel to look good, just turning on Anti-Aliasing doesnt help these kinds of of textures. This goes for any game out there, not just Gothic2.

My other mods

If you liked this mod you might want to check out my other work.

Fallout is one of the classic RPG series for the PC, please check out my Fallout New Vegas Flora Overhaul and if you're Bethesda / TES fan you also might want to check out my extensive list of Morrowind flora mods. For Bethesdas latest game Skyrim I have created yet another flora overhaul, check it out here. One of the absolutely best and most atmospheric PC games ever created, imo, is System Shock 2, here are my mods on SystemShock.org.

Here are my mods for Knights of the Old Republic 2:

Will this texture pack affect the gameplay in any way?

How do we install it?

Thank you for all the work you put into this.

PS : Now we demand one for Gothic I right now! ;)

bemushroomed November 1st, 2010 18:46

No, its just textures and a few meshes, so it doesnt change gameplay in any way. It should be complatible with any mod too.

Drop the the file where all other .vdf files are (..\Gothic II\Data) and it should work.

The Wanderer November 1st, 2010 21:17


I remember using a 32Gb texture pack done by Postal.
File hosted on Rpgdot back in the days.
It was a great file.
By what I've seen from the pictures that you showed us here, I can't wait to use yours.

I might try it soon.

Thanks again.

Kostas November 1st, 2010 22:16

Thanks,I won't get to try it for a while but I'll seed the torrent.

32 Gigabytes of textures for Gothic? Can anyone confirm this?

The Wanderer November 1st, 2010 22:57



Meant 32Mb. :biggrin:

bemushroomed November 2nd, 2010 15:06

Rapidshare alternative download for those who don't use torrents.

* A few new meshes such as thicker grass and rye

This mod was created in a period of 2 weeks so don't expect a complete overhaul and don't expect every texture be perfect.

It was meant to be a small replacer for my personal use for some of the textures i didn't like, but the mod grew into this "partial overhaul".

Have fun and i hope you enjoy the mod.

One of the greatest crpgs ever made just got better.

Nemesis November 8th, 2010 19:49

Vurt, you are a golden god. I haven't tried your texture pack yet (as I'm at work and I just found this thread), but I just started playing Gothic 2 again recently (for like the 20th time) and I might just start over just to try this mod! It looks great and I appreciate that you took the time to create something like this when it's been such a long time since this game has been released. Still trying to get co-workers to try Gothic 2: NOTR; depending on how I like the textures, this mod may be canon for me from now on…

Again, thank you SO MUCH!

bemushroomed November 8th, 2010 22:43

Glad you like it :)

Might continue working with this at some point..

Nemesis November 9th, 2010 00:57

That would be awesome - also, Gothic 1 retexturing would be amazing as well, of course. By the way, I've found 7-zip to be an amazing tool for compression. It does almost every compression filetype (with the exception of .ace, I think). Makes it easy for splitting files as well as modifying the compression complexity (storage vs super-compression). Keep up the good work!

bemushroomed November 9th, 2010 01:44

For G1 these guys have done a pretty awesome job so far;


Not sure if its ever going to be relased though. They've worked with it for 3 years i believe, and in that time the team havent created nearly as many textures that i did for this mod (which took me approx. 2 weeks). Their standards are a bit out of proportion.

Neo November 9th, 2010 12:23

I'm really anxious to try this mod out. From the screenshots I've seen it looks incredible. It's hopefully gonna make the best game ever a bit better! One thing, though. The Rapidshare link seems broken. Could you maybe check into that?

bemushroomed November 9th, 2010 13:30

Fixed the Rapidshare link, 10 more downloads are available.

The torrent should be very fast though - 6 seeders + i'm on a 100Mbit fiber LAN connection :)

Nemesis November 9th, 2010 22:03

Yes, the .torrent is probably the ideal way. I forgot to seed that on my media PC before I left for work, but I will when I get back. I got around 250kb/s down or so…

DPB November 14th, 2010 01:12

You're vurt? Heh, I never realised, I'd even replied to before you on the Bethesda forums (my username there is dbankier) regarding your Morrowind mods, which are some of the best graphical upgrades. Small world!

bemushroomed November 16th, 2010 23:28

nice to see some MW community people here :)

New link for the download: http://www.multiupload.com/Y9MXEJJY5Q

Thanks heaps for this vurt, a very noticeable improvement.

Re-installed and started another play through last night, such great gameplay and already I've found whole areas that I'd missed previously. Love it.

UK_John July 6th, 2011 09:09

Thank you thank you thank you - for this great re-texture!
