Stop stealing my job! ;-) The author is a nice person, but I'd love to see him/her stop slapping on grain and thinking it makes stuff more detailed. I can't actually believe this person posts texture file comparisons in the images too. Most people would try and hide that it's upscaled. That is some brass right there!
A lot of people get obsessed with the 'new' stuff. Always thinking that whatever just came out is better because you haven't seen it before. When the newness wears off it stops looking all that great. It happens quite a bit, even around here.
