The Witcher 3 Redux feature

The Witcher 3 Mod enables high quality heads, lip movement & higher shadow resolution for all NPCs

Modders ‘rmemr’ and ‘Gerignak’ have released a pretty interesting new mod for The Witcher 3. This mod enables high quality heads, lip movement and higher shadow resolution for all NPCs. In other words, all NPCs during gameplay will now look as good as their high quality versions that are present during the dialogue cut-scenes.

According to the modders, the lip movement of NPCs seems to be very inconsistent while they talk their one-liners in normal gameplay. Sometimes it works while other times it doesn’t. This mod also triggers a special mini scene for every new spawned NPC which seems to make it more consistent. Still, there are some limitations so don’t expect it to work all the time.

As mentioned, this mod also causes NPCs to have their LOD0 heads. These are the highest quality heads that the game uses during cut-scenes and dialogues.

Lastly, the mod enables a flag for higher resolution shadows for all NPCs. These shadows are similar to those used in dialogue scenes. In case you’re wondering, this flag enables self-shadows.

You can download this brand new mod from here. Below you can also find some comparison screenshots. Vanilla screenshots are on the left, whereas the modded screenshots are on the right.

Enjoy!
