Title: [FF7 PC] [Echo-S] OGFields - Complete Field Replacement (Beta)
Post by: opengrip on 2019-02-06 10:58:43
OGFields
Complete Field Replacement Beta

***NEW VERSION AVAILABLE NOW*** Previews are updated.
Changes include: Cleaner images (reduced noise) and further adjustments to every field.

Upscaled to x4 their original resolution using the most advanced machine learning available. This adds back in the detail you lose when upscaling normally based on a trained image model in order to give the highest quality output possible.

After receiving AI enhancement we further clean up the images to make sure every detail is clear and looks as good as possible.

This is still a beta release and we plan to do more updates in the future. The first half of the game has been tested but if anyone finds any errors (Layers acting funny or not cleanly put back together) please report. This being said we have found minimal adjustments in our testing.

Future versions will include further optimization of the current pack. It could also include further overall improvements if the tech improves further.

[Echo-S] - This mod is also one piece to a larger project which aims at remastering the full game. If you wish to find out more you can check out our youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsd0YxmVG92OHv8LsQ6Hpiw or join us on discord @ https://discord.gg/8wxtRPR

Here some pictures in game with my Reshade preset. I gotta say, this AI mod is looking better than I thought it would.

Yeah that Cloud model fits really well with these backgrounds imo. I also love how clear these are. It's such a massive improvement over the older methods.

Hey thanks for trying the mod and posting more shots for people to check out! Make sure you check back for updates as well. The next version will drastically clean up the image even more on top of having more manual adjustments to things such as lighting layers etc.

Also for anyone interested in how this mod looks vs the new Remako Mod here is a comparison. The OGFields render is the latest version which will be in the next release coming soon. The Remako render was taken from his blogs Render Drive. This isn't meant to say one is better then the other but just to present a clear comparison of the 2 so its easier for people to make there own opinions on what to use.

Some more pictures. Easier viewing. For me, after clicking an image it takes a few seconds to fully load and clear up. Enjoy. Thanks for the mod.

I don't use 7th Heaven, so I must have moved some files around lol. I'm actually using the Chaos fields with the Nino Cloud field. That super HD Barret is nice, but too HD for the game IMO. I may actually put my playthrough on hold until the rest of the Nino style fields are done.

May I ask you how did you use without 7th Heaven? Thanks. :)

You can use 7th heaven to extract the contents of the mod, from there you can place the field folder inside your FF7/mods/textures folder. This way they will load without the use of 7th heaven

This mod are sick

No seriously, it looks awesome. First time playing through FF7 on PC, wanted to mod it significantly yet stay faithful to the original art. This fits the bill perfectly. Thank you.

Hello!

First of all, congratulations. This seems to be an excellent attempt at upscaling. I suppose you are collaborating with UpRisen and trying to make the internal graphical/visual consistency as good as possible as part of the Avalanche Arisen (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=18029.msg254923#msg254923 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=18029.msg254923#msg254923))?

There will be compatibility with the upcoming (well... sooner or later) version 6 of Reunion?

Thanks and best of luck fixing any kind of glitches that may be found.

Grip isn't around atm so OP cant be edited but here is a vast update to OGFields:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SGg3b1ZHuBU99buJ8hxj_Uya6VLLbz08

All the light layers have been gone over and all animations tweaked. Cleaned up smudged areas and sharpened the areas which did not receive AI as well as others.

Once he's back i'll get him to update it

Hey everyone just an update that the mod is now on V1.2. The main post has been updated with a new gallery and link to download the new version.

I like the artsy painting look these kinds of filters produce. These would go great with NinoStyle's character models.

I think you guys may have gone a little overboard smoothing things out in the newest update. It feels like a lot of things have lost their texture. Example : the Nibelhelm mansion secret stairway: the bricks look nice and granular in the last version, in the new one, it looks smudged to the point where it almost resembles the original again.

Just my two cents. Your work is still very much appreciated!

This looks ducking brilliant  :o :o :o :o, brilliant colours, but detailing has been kept in tact and everything has a more refined look too it. Outstanding work and thanks for your efforts Opengrip, and please keep at this and keep up the great work  :D :D P.S would this be aright by you to upload this mod to google drive might be easier for people to download rather than Nexus mods.

It's actually inside the new cataloge link now for 7th heaven to save doing all that.
I advise everyone getting it. It is official too.
