It's hard to tell, but I think this effect is also commonly referred to as high dynamic range. It simulates the way the human eye adjusts to lighting conditions. Details in the shadows are obscured in direct bright light

Very interesting! How does it work at night? Do you have any videos of night time?

This is something I was using in fs9, and the effect is quite good when tuned up in the ini. The dll also does a good job at color correction and really cleans up the muddy view of fs9 and fsx.It does cost frames though, but not near as much as the fsx built in bloom system. My mid range pc drops about 15 frames when this is on, less in fs9.

I have no FPS drop with this for FSX, don't know why it effects your frames.

What resolution do you use in fsx? What video card are you running?I'll DL this dll that you have in your post above, mine is about a year old, perhaps the dll has been improved.

Glorious!This version does indeed perform better than the older one I had. Looks fantastic and doesn't cost more than a single frame.I have noticed though, my frames will seem to drop for no reason until I Alt-Enter to window mode and back. Once I do that, they shoot back to normal. Other than that, it's staying in the directory as a welcomed change.Thanks for the heads up!

this really is a cool addition. The effect is subtle, but noticeable and impressive. hard to put a finger on it exactly: adds some grit, some art, some realism, something. I haven't messed with the ini settings at all, just using it as it was when I downloaded it. maybe I'll try the settings posted above, too. thanks!

This addon is INCREDIBLE! THANK YOU SO MUCHIn fact I will go as far to say that this addon is the best "visual art" addition to FSX to date. The next big thing is that camera add on you see floating around this forum, not released yet but looks very promising.I can't wait to see if we'll have a bunch of different config file postings with sample screenshots attached. This is a very powerful yet effective little tool! Let's start expermenting..

Wow...! I just gave it a try but it really does something with FSX! It's becoming next-gen! Even the colors seem to get more real. And somehow there is more depth in the game with this light changing around you. It certainly gives more life to FSX! Here are some shots I made to show what it does. I don't have a frameratecounter on in FSX but it seems it doesn't cost me any fps. Effect off:2ez4cb8.jpgEffect on (everything becomes a bit more lighter, see the effect in the sky!):16gmlw4.jpgAnd now looking into the sky, effect off:24o35uw.jpgEffect on: everything becomes darker, just as in real life!25p1y69.jpgDid some more fliying: it's stunning! Specially with a plane like the Decathlon, where you've got a wide open view out front: when you look aside you really see the lighting change! And the bloom is nice too, without an fps penalty! Makes you wonder what else is possible with FSX...!This addons seems to solve one of my biggest problems with FSX: I never ever had the idea there was real light, that the sun was shining. Everything always looked a bit dull or lifeless or flat, no matter how beautiful everything looks with various addons. But now there IS light in FSX! (Clouds with shadows would help a lot too btw!) Great find, Marniftarr! :(
