I love thopat's preset but it is badly outdated.  I have posted on their discussion board on their website, as have others, and they are no longer responding. 

Does anyone know if they are still developing this for the newer versions of P3d 4 and PTA tweak assistant?

Just wait until 4/30 when Rex environment force comes out, and chances are that you won't need PTA or Tomato for much of anything anymore- except maybe aircraft lighting.  Check out the site and see how this will be a game-changer for those of us who like to tweak shaders.

Well, there website for their preset has gone dark, so I guess they are closing shop.

My problem is I'm colored-blind.  I can't tweak these presets because, obviously, I don't have the ability to see the colors and shades.  That's why I depend on others, as I did with Thopat.

So, can anyone recommend a preset that would be a good all-around preset?  I appreciate the help.

I've been using "MattDavies_Dec18" preset and really love it. It works great anywhere I fly, and sometimes I'll adjust the HDR settings in sim slightly to adjust for seasons or locations. The preset is a great starting point, even without any HDR adjustments.

Multiple tweaks are not included in EF and also no Post Processing. It is more a light version of PTA/TS...

To answer your question, Bob.

They said some time ago that they will no longer develop or modify thopat.

I think the reason were some discussions they get annoyed of.. Pity but hopefully Rex Environment Force will be what we are looking for

Thanks, Carsten.  You definitely need thick skin if you develop for the flight sim community.

And, who would know better, Matt!

The vast majority of us really do appreciate you and others who do so much for our hobby.

Agreed, but it's an important light version.  Most of the features I use are included- including things that reshade does, so this is a big deal:-)
