This..
While the HD textures look nice and crisp - the original colour and overall ''style'' is not there (sand, grass especially)

When I made some HD remake textures - I worked ontop of the original TGA tile set - colour picking from the originals as I went..
That way was more accurate.

But still, amazing work none the less

Actually the "now" style from the previous page is growing on me a lot! I'd advise to make the horizon match the original more closely, it has this bright halo right above the horizon line that's missing from the HD version. Adjusting the textures to match the originals in terms of colors definitely is the right direction.

I prefer you initial textures. I like the clearer colors.

Don't mind silly, nostalgic, purist people. Just do your art. The artists that created the game are not so great the one cannot improve their work, and they worked on big time and technology constrains.

By the way: there are 2 things i'm working on the might improve this project.

1) PSX style reflections

2) Bump maps (the lighting will be "static", so i don't know if it will look that good)

I'll try to release those ASAP, but i wont be THAT soon

Phhf typical. Any love for the classics and you get picked on for it.

Nobody claimed the original work cannot be improved upon, or is 100% perfection by Core - because it wasn't.

Even on YT, people are stating that all that is needed is a little more colour/saturation as it really does effect the look of the level. Thats all.
The actual textures are lovely.
I remember someone retextured TRA with better colours (no actual change in texture, just bumped up contrast) and it made such an improvement,as in that game everything was grey and washed out

Yeah, pretty much this. None of us were attacking the creator for not meeting an expectation, we just kindly put forth our criticisms/ideas constructively. Classic fans shouldn’t get labeled as “silly, nostalgic, purist” people because that frequently isn’t the case. We just have our own, honest opinions that usually aren’t blinded by nostalgia or anything.

Beautiful!
Please tell me later down the line you'll fix up Lara's outfits and enemy textures too?
It's ALOT of work, but it really gives everything a whole new look and would be amazing to see this game COMPLETELY remastered. (Kinda like the TR1 Glidos remastered textures.)
TR3 is defiantly my #1 favorite Tomb Raider game, so i'm totally looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Btw, the trailer looks amazing and that TR3 remix is a BOP.
