  1. Hi Bob, Yes on the latest driver,I have tried the nvidia filters. and colour correction. still issue persists . thanks mike
  2. I am getting stunning performance . Wry fluid. Don’t know if it’s the 7950x3d and 3080ti. or the latest msfs update and latest driver update . but 🤩. ifit’s the driver I won’t be updating at all if it is.😊 Just need to fix the washed out look that bugs me. iv e tried everything with user.cfg tweaks . to Nvidia shaders. and nothing. mike
  3. Only thing that sucks is the disappearing cloud shadows when panning . all sliders maxed. mike
  4. 🤩 thank you just tried these out with Rex soft clouds enhanced 🔥 very happy thank you very much. im running a 7850x3d with 3080ti and 32 go 6000mhz ddr5 . and eats it for breakfast honestly better than v5 and msfs for me atm 🤩 mike
  5. What mesh reso should be set in P3d? To work both orbx scenery and fsgu? thanks mike
  6. @Rogen, Can you please share your preset for tomatoshade? And first 5 points in post regarding shaders ? thank you mike
  7. Rogen do you mind posting the link to the cloud shader mod and your tomato shade ini file? also what options did you install in rex texture direct and clouds? Thanks mike
  8. http://rdart.ru/SetInstaller That’s it . do not not know if any shader mods are required like pta or RDshade etc? mike
  9. I think there is a website I can’t recall which one thou whereby you can download a program. And install presets. I’ll have to search when I get home. mike
  10. I don't actually use the preset, I kind of rolled my own. And with regards to weather I mean clear skies (I stop ASN and choose clear skies), so that the weather is not influencing visibility and thus causing over or under adjustment of the Rayleigh scattering. Some Info: What I found was the author of Tomatoshade never updated to cater for 4.5 HF3 (that I'm aware of at least - v31 is the last I have). As a result I noticed a ton of errors in the P3D logs. At that point I found as long as you're not using the reflection options it is still a valuable tool in defining lighting and things like Rayleigh scattering. So I rolled my own settings which I've been tweaking to my liking ever since, I've pasted the ini into a spoiler for your preview. I also make two manual changes to 2 x shaders, one change to resolve a math issue and the other change for precipitation. Neither may apply to yourself as not all configs would have the same shader values but here they are based on my ini file. Note if changing the values below they will be overwritten whenever the Tomatoshade config is applied, so the process would be to apply the Tomatoshade settings, then the edits, then trigger P3D to regenerate its shader cache, confirm the look and rinse and repeat until satisfied. Cheers R What I really like about P3D is there are a host of easily configurable settings able to be made with just a text editor. e.g. slow down the road traffic, reset the sun/moon size, plus all the option avaialble in the P3D config file, great stuff to tune the look feel.

Rogen sent me This a while back . it would be great if anyone could break it down into an preset for us using RDSHADE mike
  11. I think he is using Rex texture direct with soft clouds enhanced also. mike
  12. 🤩 clouds look great sky force? Rdshade? tomatoshade? may you share your preset? oled tv? thanks mike
  13. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue ? Setting up the EFB using navigraph. I get a CTD. It has happened twice now. Mike
  14. Sorry a little off topic but since we are talking about the 787 .qw have any of you had a CTD using the EFB? as just had one. Mike
  15. thanks for the reply just figured it out lol i needed to add more flightplans. lol Thanks michael
