Ice Rift

IMG_03012015_210206

Hey League of Legends community. This is Ice Rift – full texture overhaul of original updated Summoner’s Rift map into winter theme.

I wanted to create that “winter feeling”, but at same time keep clarity and avoid sharp details. Previous version was designed around ice which was really interesting and fun idea. You still were able to see original map textures, grass, flowers and stones on the ground, but everything was covered with ice. It created interesting and funny feeling of glass skating-rink. But it messed up with river textures, because river was frozen too. Also I wanted to find a way to bring back old winter Summoner’s Rift… in some form. Unlike previous version, this one is fully covered with snow except river which is still frozen with nice ice texture.

Someone of you may say that quality of snow on stones and trees isn’t that good, that it’s blurry and doesn’t fits with original quality. I’ve tried to reproduce winter style from old SR map. It looked nice, but I decided to keep this version of snow just because it wasn’t so cluttered and overloaded with sharp details. After all, the main goal was to create winter feeling.

Another important moment was bushes (or brushes) and some problems with their colors. Thanks to Salwin’s help I’ve managed to fix bush colors and make them fit with winter theme.

I saw some requests to differentiate jungle quadrants to make them more unique. Each quadrant is slighty colored. North quadrant is slighty red, south – orange, east – blue, and west – purple.

Also unlike in previous version, here you will not see all of the river particles – green lilys and waterfalls were turned off. Thanks to Chewy with helping at particles removal.

Jungle camps and small creatures models remain unchanged, but their colors are adjusted to fit with winter theme. Doodads, stones and trees were manually covered with snow. It took some days to “winterize” everything, and some weeks for polishing. What about average brightness – it’s not that bright, but brighter than default Summoner’s Rift.

Ice Rift contains almost 400 files, including low and medium quality textures (which are 2x and 4x times smaller in file size). You can install Ice Rift skin with two ways: Wooxy or SIU. Want to note that there was an update that improves average feeling of winter and fixes textures and other stuff based on community feedback. You can visit article about Ice Rift v2 here.

How to download and install

In Wooxy with downloading from our server

 WARNING – June 2015 update

Right now Ice Rift (latest version 3 with gates) is very bugged and was not updated with latest versions of League of Legends. Install this map at your own risk and be ready to have many textures bugs. Ice Rift will be redone later this year.

    • Since I can’t reply latest your comment, I’ll reply to this one. Just drag-n-move downloaded 7z-archive to Add-skin window and it will unpack after some minutes. You can do same with SIU, but Wooxy installs (or uninstalls) skins for 2 seconds, while SIu for about some minutes.

      If it doesn’t works, then extract archive and drag-n-move extracted files.

  5. Awesome work on this! Mine is messed up in-game though. All of the ground and monsters are fine but the walls/trees in the jungler and the steps leading down to the lanes *just* outside of the bases are the same for me as they are on the newly update SR.

  6. Probably a stupid question but how do I install this with SIU? The file isn’t showing up to add, is there something I have to do to it?

  7. It looks awesome, thanks a lot for your hard work ^_^.
    I have to point out, though, that on Medium and High environment qualities some textures are not properly displayed. Could you look into it?

  8. How do I install with SUI? I can’t /don’t know how to download the files so how do I import them?
    The Wooxy version of installation didn’t have any snow on the particles or bushes.

  9. I don’t think its a bug in my game or in the mod itself but when I put medium quality on the ambient section it changes to the old textures, it only works with low and high quality of the graphics.
    Incredible job with the map tho

    • Wooxy’s version of Ice Rift is a bit outdated. Try to download skin archive from links and install it as Custom skin. We will update Wooxy’s ice Rift a bit later.

      • I’d like to work on Howling Abyss without ice. Like Summer Abyss or something like that. Use beautiful textures from current Rift and make there vines plants, mossy road… and…. like realy cooling ancient ruins. Down could be big river and whole blue mist from original Abyss could be green like in jungle. Just idea. I’d like to work on this with someone. I am kinda skilled in making textures but still learning. The reason I didn’t want to post it in comments was that I am afraid someone will take it from me and I will get no credit 😀 This might take long to be done but w/e I am counting on that.
        Peace and sorry for my english.

        • I think it’s a good idea. But need to draw new textures, or take ones from other maps, like standard SR. And I’d want to say that it’s not on top of priority for me at least. First I want to polish Ice Rift a bit more.
