Bernd's Real Life Weather 2.1.4

Preliminary 1.5 compatability

  1. Bernd Graf
    Presenting Mr. Alpem, or the More Real And Lifelike Post-processing Effects Mod (with a bit of humor in there ;)). Get closer to reality with experimental clouds, fully D6500k calibrated filters, and 7+night weathers to take Assetto Corsa to the next level.

    Additionally, I have re-included a file that adds new track grip settings for wet conditions to go along with the storm weather! You can find the file here:

    If properly installed, you should see two new grip levels added to your track surface slider:

    Some of the weather resource options include:

    And that's just some of the 35 included weathers from which to build your custom weather options!

    Also provided are 6 filters to help regulate real life colors:

    A1 clear
    A1 fog
    A1 night
    A1 overcast
    A1 photo cool
    A1 photo warm


    For best results, please follow install instructions:

    --open the "Mr. Alpem" file
    --select either the "express install" or "experimental clouds" folder
    --MAKE SURE TO BACKUP THEN REMOVE OLD KUNOS CLOUD TEXTURES AND WEATHERS!
    --install new weathers, filters, and cloud textures into their respective file locations


    The file locations are as follows:

    assettocorsa/content/texture/clouds
    assettocorsa/content/weather
    assettocorsa/system/cfg/ppfilters


    use 90% color saturation
    use 90% game exposure with the page up/down keys

    Enjoy! My thanks to Xedrox and Tomas Torasen for their input for further improvements...Xedrox is fast becoming indispensable for finding ways to improve the visuals!

    Best PP / weather mod I've seen, and I've tried pretty much all common ones. AC looks tons better than default with this mod. Sunset, sunrise, overcast, stormclouds.. very natural and looks true to life. 5/5

    great mod, but why can't i find the new rain grip folder in your mod. did you take it out?
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      Yes, I removed it since no one was downloading it. I thought it would be more popular than it was since it really expands the driving dynamic within the game, I suppose it was a gimmick...if you'd like it back, I can upload it again with the newly planned update for 2.1.4 :)

    Is this any way possible to use without PP enabled?
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      Yes! Graphics mods are not intended for PP users only...turn PP off in the menu by disabling the various video features, and custom weather still works. You won't get FxAA, glare, etc, but you will see the weathers, albeit slightly different since there's no saturation control without PP.

      So because you didn't know my mod worked with PP-off, you rated it 3 stars? :P

    Really like the natural color mood - 5 stars for that, no doubt about it.

    What bothers me a bit is that the ingame exposure adjustment (PgUp/PgDn) doesnt always work (for me). The game then just won't react to changes - the setting on screen does (90 to 70 percent etc.) but the actual exposure stays the same. Is there a solution/reason for this?
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      The exposure appears to stay the same, but because I am using closer auto-brightness parameters, i.e., .17-.3 instead of .1-.7, you have to use higher exposure values to see a change. Past 180% exposure you will begin to see brightness.

    Congratulations for the excellent work!
    On my system, the latest version presented a problem:
    The "Virtual Mirror" was so dark that it is useless.
    The characters "cartoon" of the tracks as well. But in this case, is a blessing! ;-)
    It would be some setting in my game? I use little, but the "Virtual Mirror" is indispensable in some cars. Especially if we change the FOV.
    Thanks,
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      For me, the virtual mirror works fine, but yes, this version of Mr. Alpem has the blackout grandstand fans "issue." I am working on an update to work with 1.4, update will be up soon.

    Hi, get the filter to work and also the two new tarmac settings, but some reason the sweetfx stuff will cause an issue and cant start a practice session...without sweetfx i can run a practice session, can you help please :), can't select weather slider...
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      Yes, sweetfx is bugged for some users, AC support confirmed this. For me, causes no issues, but if you have an issue, it's normal for 1.4. Adi, SweetFX author, is working on a fix for AC 1.4. For the mean time, don't use it with my mod. I'm uploading a fix for this right now :)

    I'm only using the "rain" track surface. It is great for drifting. The graphic mod is way too confuse, dark, unreal. Sorry, that is the way I see it.
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      Dark? Did you use my weather and filters? Combined, they are actually brighter than the current Kunos weather so...? You don't have to be sorry either :D

    I'd love to see it for the new version 1.4, would be a great Christmas present ;)
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      I'm toying with the idea of doing an update...it's not major 1.4 changes, but it still works, provided you use my filters AND weather :)

    Finally I found sometime to test this stuff. All PP filters, weathers one by one.

    Result is perfect!

    Especially with the foggy weather you've done a smashing job mate!

    That Dusk weather is truelly creative and amazing.

    Heavy Cloud weather is also very good. Night condition is also as good as it can be.

    All cloud textures are looking awesome.

    I just advice you to add my TrueLight filter and Spring weather to your pack. I'll send them to you with a PM.

    I think there is no need to create anything special after using this.

    Congrats, really good job.

    is it possible to write two reviews? lol
    Just delete my old review. ha ha
    Well I guess I'm almost ready to stop using Natural Graphics Mod now.
    Your mod has replaced almost everything now.
    The sunny weather is just perfect. (not sure I see the difference between HDR and non-HDR though.)
    Your fog is MUCH better than in Natural Graphics Mod, cos the track is brighter and more realistic overall.
    Night is great, but I wonder if the clouds aren't too bright?
    So really, my ONLY problem would come from the rainy/stormy weather. I still feel like it's not realistic enough...
    Not sure why... Maybe a problem with the white balance.
    I do notice something though, in most of your storm weather filters.
    You can see it in many many tracks (including the recent Barcelona), the mountains look blue and kinda... contrasted or something. I could take a picture to show you.
    It totally breaks the immersion.
    I wish they looked more blurred out and not bright blue.
    (not every storm file is like that though)
    As for the PP Filters, can't comment, since I created my own now. he he :)
    Ooooh yeah, and your "eb_lightly_cloudy" is GREAT!
    I wonder if it's not better than your Sunny HDR... lol
    Gee the saturation is high though, I had to lower it a bit. lol
    (my pp filters already boost the saturation a bit, so... lol)

    Maybe my eyes are wrong, but in my opinion these files convert Asseto Corsa in rFactor1, or something like this. But I repeat, my eyes can be wrong. Sorry.
    1. Bernd Graf
      Author's Response
      Well, any comparison to a great game is appreciated :). rFactor has had good skyboxing and colors since I can remember, glad my mod comes close to another popular sim.
