Niko 2.0 - A HD retex, handpainted by aewsoemsauce

This is my attempt at making an updated and much more detailed texture for GTA IV's favorite murdering maniac. I have always found Niko's face being emotionless and a bit unappealing so I gave him a makeover. That rugged Slavic look is still there, just a little modernized. I'm not fully satisfied with it but since I really have better stuff to do, let's just call it done.

~~~* WHAT DO I DO? *~~~

Open up models/cdimages/playerped.rpf, found within your GTA IV folder, with either SparkIV or OpenIV. Then replace the texture- and normal-map with the ones inside this archive. Simple as that!


Go right ahead, I don't really give a hoot.
If you want to make changes to these maps in any way, feel free to do so. Use it however you want!

Hope you like it,
aewsoemsauce Replaces: Niko's fugly face!

my only advice is to make niko's head texture 75% transparent, cause his face looks glossy. :/
