A2A C172 + P3D v3 = Bliss

Recommended Posts

A2A C172 in P3D v3. Lighting, reflections, atmosphere, everything looks pretty good if you ask me! :smile:  No editing, just SweetFX and Shade!

So I don't need to read any "X-Plane or AeroFly FS looks better" mumbo jumbo! For me this is it!

Thanks! :) I was FSX DX10 nerd two or three weeks ago, last week was a migration week! :dance:

I will upload two sweetfx presets in official sweetfx library today, and will share the link here.

I ditched Shade and left default values, because when I darkened the shadows it also darkens the ground, even during midday.

 

I'm using SweetFX 1.5.1

 

cheers

Amazing shots, I look forward to giving your sweetfx settings a try. Those shots are so sharp! I'm assuming your using NVidia inspector to help with the AA?.

Nope. Not using NI for pd3 v3, I don't have to. I have good AA with ingame MSAA and FSAA.

Hi Folks,

 

While I'm a low wing guy - I certainly can appreciate your sentiment - excellent shots...

;)

 

Regards,

Scott

Strong version:

Thank you much - You know there is another easier way to get these effects

 

You go into your p3d.cfg file and turn up saturation to 1.7 and make sure saturation is all the way up in sim first 

Then load in shade - not much of a difference then sweet and it much easier

I will try that, but I'm sure it will not change hue and contrast like with SweetFX. Thanks for the tip!  :smile:

 

X-Plane and AeroFly FS look better 

 

Aerofly FS maybe, X-Plane only when it's pitch black!  :P  And I'm not sarcastic, it looks better only during night with that majestic street lights.  :smile:

Like many visitors here, I should comment more............although I'm pretty lost for words to use after seeing those pics.  Hopefully, just "outstanding" will do?

Yes, in the root of P3D folder. Now if you downloaded and unpacked a different version of SweetFX (ReShade for example), you can copy-paste DPX, TONEMAP and LIFTGAMMAGAIN values from my settings file to the settings file of your version, and disable ALL OTHER effects, just leave these three. That way you can use any version, and avoid any problems.
