Hmm, it looks okay to me. I can't really tell much of a difference, if any, with just the fp16 enabled.

Doom 3 default...........Doom 3 using mod with just fp16 enabled

Doom 3 default...........Doom 3 using mod.......Doom 3 using mod, no fp16

Quake 4 default..........Quake 4 using mod with fp16 enabled

I compared several other areas in Quake 4 and Doom 3 and only two out of 8 places I compared looked worse. In those two cases it was mainly the specular option making an already poor looking grating easier to see. I don't really see a difference with the fp16 option but maybe things are different with the 7800s or something.
