Gerard's All months preset set : P3D v4.x

Recommended Posts

Here a new thread with updates on my  "All months preset set"  for P3D4.1 and P3Dv4.2 .

Both including many custom tweaks and expressions , depending on time of day, month, weather and altitude including Clouds Directional Lighting .

 

P3Dv4.1 :  http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_1 All months.rar

P3Dv4.2 : http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_2 v11 All months.rar

                 http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_2 v12 All months.rar

 P3Dv4.2  http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_2 v13 All Months.rar

 P3Dv4.3  http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_3 v14 All months.rar

 P3Dv4.4 /http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_4 March.rar   

( The included GPUTerrain.fx file is no longer needed. Before applying the preset Enable the Water Surface Tuning tweak )  

P3Dv4.5   http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5 v16 - Apr.rar

                   The Clouds have been redone and it sets a slightly higher Bloom for even more improved Nightlighting.

                 http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5 v16 - Mai.rar

                   Water has been improved so now saturation also changes depending on altitude.

                 http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5 v16 - Jun.rar

                   Improved cloud scattering and slightly less blue raleigh scattering

P3Dv4.5  http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5 v17 - 21 Jul -20 Aug.rar

                  Haze and Raleigh Scattering improved : more real coloring and little more haze on the ground when flying at higher altitude

 

P3Dv4.5HF2 http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5HF2 7 Oct - 6 Nov.rar

        http://members.casema.nl/gsalden/PTA2-Saldo 4_5HF2 7 Nov - 6 Dec.rar

Great preset Gerard!  If only I could figure out how to get the deepness of color inside of the cockpit and outside of the aircraft that the THOPAT 2_2 preset gives, this would make your preset absolutely perfect.  THOPAT 2_2 was also pretty good, but the bluish hues just didn't work for me, but somehow the colors were really vibrant without it feeling too fake.

Thanks for your kind words Dylan.

You can try modifying Scene Tone Adjustment icw Contrast Tuning. Both at the bottom in the HDR & Postprocessing section.

Thanks again Gerard.  One last question.  Are the dark clouds due to cloud directional lighting?  I vaguely remember seeing a post on how to get rid of this, but can't find it.  See below example:

Your weather program is responsable for your clouds.

If all clouds were dark then it was due to the preset. Directional Clouds Lighting looks like this :

Thanks again, but I found the issue.  Alternative Lighting for cloud groups was checked instead of "No popcorn" modifier.  That got rid of the gray clouds for me.

Alternative Lighting is giving contrast to light/dark parts of the clouds.

The No-Popcorn tweak takes out contrast so repeating clouds will be noticed less.

 

If you are satisfied that is all that counts. Enjoy ....

Hi gerard

I just installed your March preset, after loving Feb

However, Now I get black ground textures. As in, it breathes black and normal.

How is that possible?
