Any PTA-like utility for V5?

Recommended Posts

Slowly transitioning to V5, so far so good, but I'm badly missing PTA. Is there any similar utility for V5 on the market? Would appreciate your help!

Nope.  Closest one would be Envshade but I understand it doesn't give the level of granular control that PTA does. I am not an Envshade user.

No, unfortunately there is not.

 

A few offer some limited control of variables, but nothing like PTA.  Seems like the best path forward if you want more depth and customization, is to manually edit shader files yourself….at least currently.

PTA and Tomatoshade has this GREAT tweak called " sky fog tuning" . basically , you can let a weather program like REX or ASN to manage the fog .. P3d v5 has this annoying light blue ring in the distance ( which P3d v5 had  - but you can eliminate it via TS or PTA) . 

So may tweaks that make such a difference ( e.g. a shadow tweak giving the impression of more detail in terrain mesh) , aircraft lighting , sky saturation , the list goes on.

 

ENVDIR is a decent substitute but does not have the full functionality of a PTA of TS.

And Envshade is not the best either.

So far, Envshade is not compatible with v5.2 but, MaximeK at TOGA says his team is working on an update..... however no word on an ETA.

I thought it was possible to use old clouds in 5.2 with PTA

Old clouds with *EA*, not PTA.  PTA never made the trip to v5.
