Textures are compressed to 50, 25 and 12.5% of their original compression and you can install all of them or separatelly for environment or ships. New compressed textures do not change original WoWs textures - they are installed in res_mods folder.

 

Author has measured WoWs loading times of port after login into game with and without using compressed textures on his home computer and here are his results:

 

Clean client 0.3.1.2 - 43 seconds

50% quality of textures - 35 seconds

25% quality of textures - 27 seconds

12.5% quality of textures - 11 seconds

 

The comparison of original and modified WoWs client you may see at next screenshots published by author:

 

Original client

 

50% quality of textures

 

25% quality of textures

 

12.5% quality of textures

 

1% quality of textures

 

 

Pros:

  • Faster game/battle loading
  • Faster port loading after login/battle
  • Faster ship switching in port
  • Fewer lags caused by loading graphic elements during battle
  • Consuming less computer resources than original client

 

Cons:

  • Lower graphics quality (depends on quality of used compressed textures)

 

Conclusion: It is a very good package for players with weaker computers, especially without SSD or with small amount of RAM/graphics memory. To players with powerful computers this package will not bring a real benefit.

 

Installation: Unpack downloaded archive into appropriate folder in res_mods

 

Download 50% textures Mirror 1  Mirror 2  Mirror 3 (2.17 GB)

Download 25% textures Mirror 1  Mirror 2  Mirror 3  Mirror 4 (594.5 MB)

Download 12.5% textures Mirror 1  Mirror 2  Mirror 3  Mirror 4 (161.4 MB)

Download test pack 12.5% - 1% textures Mirror 1  Mirror 2  Mirror 3  Mirror 4 (5.02 MB)

 

Notes:

 

 

  • Textures for ships are stored in "World_of_Warships\res_mods\0.4.1\content\gameplay". In all other folders are being stored environment textures.
  • It is highly recommended to switch-off your internet browser during playing WoWs. Internet browser can drastically decrease performance of your computer.
  • If you think that after installation of textures all is in dark colours as during a late twilight then switch off "Post Processing" in game settings

At my computer standard textures take over 6.75 GB

 

Wrong info about package size corrected - thanks :)

It's a slight improvement but every added frame counts.

Thanks! +1

I have quite a good PC, but this game on the next level, like, i'd get the loading times, if the game ran on Frostbite 3 or Unreal Engine 4, but what we have now/how it looks, the loading times...they just don't make sense, i feel like i'm back on my Pentium 4 with Windows XP or something.

I love that you put this out, really helps people, i won't DL it cause i want to see the game in it full...erm...glory i guess.

Basically, you're doing the dev's job right now :trollface:

This game is just ridiculous... I can run it at the highest settings without any issues at good FPS, but I am loaded into the battle 20-40 seconds after battle start. And I am absolutely not interested in playing a game with terrible textures, because WG cant put their sh*t together.
