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!

    Uhm, what about telling us how to do the backup? Doesn't say so in the readme file. I'm afraid to mess something up.

    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.
