Yep, those are plain models and textures from Mythic ... I'll try to convert few base textures to normal maps, though it's not perfect way to do those.

Ok, HUGE difference to look, specially with Parallax mapping .. even tho Mythic textures are not really meant for normal maps:)

[edit]
Test image, few normal textures added.

It's alot better, but I think the lack of texture variation along with the conspicious texture seams at the interfaces is hurting it

Actually I had wrong material import .. so everything did get too bright and dull by accident.
Now should be much more close "real" colors ...

Nice - do you know what the cause of the banding artifact over the floorboards is?

I think it's from light sources as when global light level gets up then those disappear.

[edit]
It's related to light mapping and can be fixed by adding specific light volume around house

What are you plans re tessellation? I've got a dx11 card, could run the prog and grab some screenies for you if you like.

Also, have you thought of using the higher texture/model resolution 'new towns' pack? The more recent daoc clients have some really very nice housing models

Basically I have all needed textures to get something like this out http://youtu.be/6KuNw8bjDwc?hd=1&t=57s
But I think I need to tune texture "heights" a bit to handle this correctly.

Those are from new towns folder (like modes too), though I haven't update daoc client like last 6 months .. and even few 3d models are using low resolution version by default, even tho there is high resolution version stored in another location which I have been then swapping to CryEngine.
Oh and bump mapping is really showing how good or bad texture resolution really is :)
