Ok but it still needs some work but hey all monitors are not the same so you never know - what it is was the rsp version for pta with some tweaks I did - when I have time I will try to get something nice together - keep in mind I like brighter nights so this may not be to your taste but you can play with those settings

This ones better below - no settings for hdr its on or off - I have it on - you will have to play with the light settings for each time of day PTA is not an all in one solution foe each time of day - you can save profiles in P3D graphic settings

Yes this is an awesome preset!  The lighting of the terrain is fantabulous, the terrain haze is just right hue and not overdone, and VC lighting is spot on.  Thanks for sharing!

Hey Rich could you share what daytime sky you're using in REX? This preset is amazing but I'm having issues with unnaturally blue haze and I think I have narrowed it down to the sky I am using. Thank you!

Hey Adamski, just recently introducing in this shaders world and I think your screens looks awesome, by the way could you tell us, which terrains addons and environment do you have installed currently? Would PTA works if I have REX4 Texture direct with soft clouds?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Hi, pilots I thought I could share my screenshot I took yesterday after my first install of PTA using Vertigho's presets config  thanks for the share. Also big massive to the creator of this amazing shader tool well done what a great enhancement in flight sim community.

Hi,

 

Well, I have recently taken the plunge and updated to P3d v.3.3.5 and I can say, without any shadow of a doubt, that I am now officially a very happy PTA convert :)

 

Completed a wonderful leisurely 2 hour dawn flight in the Lancair Legacy, under autopilot at 3,000ft, heading due East while watching the sun appear above the distant horizon and slowly rise into the sky. As time progressed, the subtle changing of lighting and colours affecting the sky, clouds and terrain was quite beautiful to behold and, at times, simply breathtaking. This is the perfect complement to ORBX and has to be as close to reality as we can get right now with this amazing sim.

 

Yuri has been extremely helpful and got me started with his wonderful preset. I say 'got me started', but having experienced some extraordinary visual treats during this flight I would say that this set of shader tweaks is most definitely a keeper.

 

All good things have to come to an end, however, and having found a small airport I landed, parked and powered down. There was I sitting quietly chewing on a sandwich as I reviewed what had transpired during the flight when I turned to look left toward the east and was astonished to see this strange phenomenon?!

 

Solar%20Searchlight.jpg

 

For want of a better description I would say this looks like a solar searchlight illuminating some clouds! How on earth could this be created by the sim?

 

Anyone else seen this unusual sight?

 

May I take this opportunity to thank Yuri for developing this amazing Shader tweaking tool and the extraordinary genorosity of spirit he has shown towards us all. Prepar3D has never looked better!

Further investigation now convinces me that the cause is unlikely to be with PTA. The problem appears to lie with the RealAir Lancair Legacy V2. I have been unable to replicate the issue with any other aircraft whereas the 'artifact' can also be seen at KVPS while sitting in the Legacy and looking left or right, depending on the orientation of the aircraft. It does not appear in outside view. So, I'm guessing it has something to do with the Legacy's headlight/spotlight setup although why the sun should be involved is still a mystery. The original observation was made at KBGE.

Thank you for the kind words, Mike, really appreciated!

Does this beam appear without PTA with this aircraft?

Hi Yuri,

 

I posted a few images on the P3D forum and, according to Ryan, this appears to be a known issue and nothing whatsoever to do with PTA, so all is good :)

Great photo's Mike, did a similar flight last evening but didn't quite get the same visuals, are you using just the default preset or have you modified.

Hi Bob,

 

I asked Yuri to provide me with a PTA preset equivalent for my RSP ini file previously used in P3D 3.2. Not only did he oblige but also generously included his current PTA preset for P3D 3.3.5. Needless to say, there was no contest!

 

I still can't believe what I'm seeing. Wonderful! It just get's better and better. The temptation to explore is huge now as visual treats await me around every corner and over every hill and mountain.

 

It will be important for you to select an appropriate Sky Color texture set from REX4 Texture Direct. As ever, our preferences are very individual. However, as a starting point I would suggest you use Rob's selections from his excellent guide. The only other thing I had to do was make some adjustments to my HDR settings in P3D. Again, this will be to taste. Lastly, at present I'm experimenting with REX4 Soft Clouds instead of those provided by ASCA. Again, I followed Rob's suggestions with the exception that everything is unchecked apart from Cloud structure, whatever that does, I'm not sure.

 

Others have said repeatedly that PTA is transforming the appearance of their P3D. I can confirm that that is indeed the case. So much so, in fact, I find I'm now being drawn to the sim in ways that did not exist previously. Suddenly the ORBX enhanced world of Prepar3D is being revealed to us in all its glory! We are so lucky!

 

Regards,

Mike
