New HD texture pack for Thief Gold looks really good

Play the good one before the new one

Thief Gold has a new HD texture pack created by Bentraxx, and it really makes the fourteen year old game look a lot better. The game is bit dated, but this definitely makes it look good for its age.

Here's a list of what this mod adds to the game:

  • added HD textures for all original missions
  • added new vegetation
  • added new water and lava textures
  • added new torch and fire flames
  • added Fog FX (Applies only to following missions: Escape!, Strange Bedfellows, IntoThe Maw of Chaos)
  • added new Bugbeast HD skin
  • added new Burrick HD skin
  • added new Zombie HD skin (A big Zombie skin-pack update with a setup tool coming soon!!!)

I have never gotten around to finishing Thief, but I played quite a bit of it on a friend's PC a few years ago. It's a really awesome game, and this mod might get me to grab it off GOG.com and spend a weekend playing it.
