Hi there,

Thanks for the tool. Not having used URP before, I have a question- can this be installed without the need to use reshade in P3D v4? I really don't want to mess with reshade or its likes.

Cheers

Yes, as shown above, simply select the shader presets which say "Without Reshade", and there's no need to install ReShade.

Hi.

Do i need to load the ReShade profile somehow? I picked the high contrast one (With Reshade). Doesn't list a profile for me to load in-game with ReShade panel open (Shift+F2)

Is there a way to make the trees darker? It would be nice to get away with the performance gain with shadows being off but they need to be on or else you get this

@kcgb

Is that with or without reshade? What shadows did you enable on the second image? Terrain shadows?

That is without reshade, and with both full tree shadows and terrain shadows

I like the settings with this tool.. during day time and even at night.

But during dawn and dusk (my fav time to fly), There is an issue... The Dawn and dusk are very short. and the lights on the streets do not come on until its quite dark.  In the old tool in v3, I used to have a very well lit city with street lights early dawn... all lit up.. It used to be glorious. Which I miss.

 

like this..

Apart from very dark dawn and Dusk, but day time, the blue scatttering is very nice.

I also noticed the lights just come on when the terrain is already completely dark. Maybe this can be fixed.

I would disable the 3d trees. They managed to absolutely ruin my frames, and honestly look kinda weird.

Since the app is shipped as an addon, and sits in the addon folder with all the files needed, including reshade presets, it should list two presets when you open reshade in the sim. If for some reason it doesn't work, please go to "c:\Users\username\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\URP v1.1 for P3D v4\ReShade Files\" and copy all the files (except INSTRUCTIONS.txt) to the root of P3D folder, and overwrite when asked (DirtOVB and DirtOVR).

The thing is I can't make the URP perfect for everyone, it's impossible. Also, I had to sacrifice some areas of it If I wanted visuals like this during daytime in the sim. Specific shadow values made dusk and dawn dark, and that is how I like it.

Two RW examples:
