I have just started using PTA along with Matt's profile and I have to say I rather like it! 😉  However, there is one thing that I find off putting and that is the brightness of autogen buildings at night. They all seem as though they are overly lit. Is there a way of reducing the brightness? If so, what setting do I have to tweak to do so?  Cheers fellas.

Have you tried the Lighting/Diffuse Moonlight ratio setting? I'm not sure whether it means "moonlight" or just "night-time" ... worth a try though. Diffuse is for bright/highlighted parts of the object, ambient is for the shadow areas.

Adam.

EDIT: Just tried some tests: the Lighting/Diffuse Moonlight ratio setting does appear to work *only* for objects lit by moonlight. ie. No moon - no lighting. Full moon, brightest lighting.

BUT ... I think the setting you really need to check is Lighting/Autogen Emissive Lighting/Autogen Ratio (0.1-5.00). My preset has it at 1.00, whereas Matt's has it at 1.10.

Ah, thanks Adam. As a a matter of interest, does your latest profile work with V4.5+HF?
