Works fine. Use it. :)
Just check troubleshooting section if the image turns too yellow or blue using Envtex.

 

Thanks for pointing us out this great troubleshooting section of your website !

Hello everyone!

 

Can you guys help me tone down the brightness at night time?

I can't seem to figure out how to reduce the brightness at night

 

Thanks,

After 1 hour of testing I have to say - I am SO IMPRESSED. You took the sim to next level (again). Best with reshade ON. 

Fantastic work!

TONEMAP_NIGHT_EXPOSURE_KEY=0.130000

in prepar3d.cfg, reduce the value.

(only when using HDR)

I found that majority doesn't like it with ReShade on, but I find it essential. That slight haze effect with ReShade is cherry on top of the cake.  :smile:

 

cheers

It absolutely is. Adds to immerssion and I think most people don't like reshade because it's a bit harder to set up than PTA plug (load profile) and play. With your readme - it was super easy.

No, it's not about the setup only, people just don't like the blueish haze, or haze at all, mostly are fans of contrasty image or they simply don't like the haze effect. :)

I made correction in 1.0.1, winter preset is not blueish anymore, and haze in summer preset is reduced with some slight color corrections.
As I said, haze effect in ReShade is essential because I found it in EVERY real world photo/video, more or less. You can adjust the intensity of it in ReShade with one simple mouse click&drag.

 

Also, there is a group of users that can't get ReShade to work, it crashes P3D even after my suggestions from Troubleshooting section. Something is a culprit, maybe GPU drivers, maybe some addon, who knows.

Totally agree...Reshade ON is really a keeper...!

One question: is this all compatible with FSL Spotlights ? With the upcoming relase of the A320 for P3D and with the problems that FSL Spotlights has in FSX with SweetFX or similar tools what can we expect from PTA/URP/Reshade in terms of compatibility ?

Thanks

First issue (quite severe since I fly NGX) - on first load I always get no snow textures, although I load winter time. If I go to change time option and decide to push it forward e.g. 1 hour snow textures become visible but sim reloads which causes standard issues with NGX. 


FIXED by modifying texture resolution option in sim to 7 cm (had 15 cm) - WEIRD :) 


It's back again. So it's not resolution related, it's just random


FIX no. 2 (this time seems to really work) - choose "Use system time for default scenario" option in P3D options screen (general). 

 

Found this workaround on P3D forum.

For me SODE was the culprit.  When I disabled it, ReShade loaded fine.... otherwise it would crash P3D.  Don't know why tho, had a previous version of dxgi.dll working fine from an old reshade version.  (not with this PTA Preset however) .  But working fine now without SODE, and it's a great preset...thanks!
