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.
Heavy fog Light fog Clear Mid Clear (experimental 'mixed' clouds) Light clouds Mid clouds Heavy clouds Sundown (can be enjoyed with A1 Clear or A1 Night filters depending on room ambient lighting)
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:
Fog Nurburg Dawn
Fog SPA Dawn
Storm Front A
Storm Front B
Storm Front C
Storm Front D
Storm Front E
Sunny Light Clouds
Sunny HDR clear
Sunny HDR Mid clouds
Twilight 8 PM
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 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:
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!
Bernd's Real Life Weather 2.1.4
Preliminary 1.5 compatability
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?
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.
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)
