The goal of creating the Absolute Texture pack was to improve overall sharpness and quality of the textures in the game.
All the textures in the packs have been sharpened on MIP map level. It means
gradual sharpening of separate MIP map levels in every texture.
The benefit is that the usually blurred MIP maps are still sharp as they fade into distance. This results in overall sharpness of the image.
Most of the textures are the same resolution as vanilla so they don't require much more RAM to load. You can use them even on low spec machines.
There are 3 Absolute Texture Packs so far:
The goal of this texture pack is to improve overall sharpness and quality of the ground and foliage textures in the game. They also enhance the details of the ground in the distance. All areas can have unique look and feel with slightly different textures for each of them.
