PTA, Shaders, Tomatoes and Whatnot

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am running 4.2 and I have the latest version of PTA (REX TD w/Soft Clouds and AS). Right now it is set to default. I know there are a few sites with lots of presets out there (REX has some, but I can't seem to find them right now). Can someone point me in the direction of a few popular ones that work with 4.2 and the latest version of PTA? I really don't feel like tinkering too much. I ain't got time for that. Just want to try a few out, set and forget.

Also, I read the tomato thread and it also looks interesting, but it looks like setup can take a while to get the PBR like effect. My system is on the old side and I'm not sure it could handle the fancy stuff anyway. Should I mess with than and put PTA out to pasture, or stick with PTA.

Go to the PTA forum here at Avsim - there are several threads with various presets you can download.

If you don't like to tinker - just stay with PTA and use someone else's presets.

Thanks everyone.

Are those REX ones compatible with 4.2 and the latest PTA? I remember when I first installed PTA there were issues with older presets.

I just bought EnvShade like 2 hours ago for $6 bucks, and I using it with Rex Texture Direct.  Looks great for me.

I tired the whole Reshade way (freeware way...including the old PTA when it was free), and it is not for me...install files and tweak.  I need it tweaked.  click and install.  I always spend more time tweaking than simming.  I am changing that habit.
