TomatoShade Excessive Reflection

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I’ve recently applied TomatoShade for PMDG 777 and FSL A320X in P3Dv4.2, getting an excessive reflection (like the old American Airlines Livery). I’ve tried with default bright and dark presets, and also with RD’s TomatoShade preset.

Does anybody has the same issue, or know how to adjust this?

In Prepar3d settings I have Dynamic Reflections ON, and HDR Lightning Enabled (brightness: 1.1, bloom 0.1, saturation 1.0).

Thanks a lot!

Did you apply the Reflection Tweaks using the "Dynamic Reflection Maker" Tool as prompted by TomatoShade?

The Tool is located in the same folder as Tomato Shade.

Yes. Applied the profiles per model.

Drawback for me with Tomato is, that there are only 2 or 3 presets available. Or am I wrong?

I'd like to know too.  I currently use the 'Bright' preset.  I'm happy with it, but also would like to know if there is a repository for others - I've not seen any

True, but my entire simming life I have been adjusting and tweaking a lot for others, so I thought the time has come that others can do sumpin for me :biggrin:

Same to me. Since 2001 helping people, Hope the universe could compensate a little.

Any clue for my problem? I've read that is just simple applying the preset and that's it, but for me is not working.

Then just use the included preset if you don't want to tweak. Can't be lazy and picky at the same time 😉 It's an excellent preset in any case.

There's also this; https://www.rdpresets.com/rd-tomatoshade-preset.html

It's just going over what you already said, just to make absolutely sure;

Dynamic Reflection slider on at least "Low", plus you applied the included profile to the appropriate model of your aircraft. There's multiple profiles for many aircrafts, depending on their model, -200F, -200LR, -300ER etc. and you also hit "Save", so it comes up as a 'Modified' model and it turns red / orange in the DynamicReflectionMaker?

I know I'm just going over the very basics. I also saw a guy who just loaded up the presets but didn't actually apply them, by heading up into "Actions" and hitting "Apply preset".
