Germany Realistic Color Mod 1.1

Natural Colors for German Rally Stages

  1. GethemaAT
    What's this mod about?
    This mod changes the color palette for Germany by largely removing the yellowish tint from the Clear/Midday condition as well as the slight red/purple hue from the Morning/Cloudy condition. Other locations are not affected.

    Incredible job! (>^^)> now waiting for the other locations to receive this treatment which is so necessary!

      Thanks and sorry for the (very) late reply, haven't touched DR for quite some time now.
      Personally, I think the other locations are quite well done actually from a visual point of view, maybe a bit dull compared to the new states in DiRT4, but certainly not completely off like Germany

    Works well. Some stages might look a bit washed out in surrounding colours, but it's mostly due being used to the stock "yellow" filter.

      Thanks for your review, much appreciated!
      As for saturation, it's somewhat tricky to find the rightbalance between a washed out and a cartoony look. Personally, I prefer to go with slightly less intensity as too much mostly breaks the immersion. Plus, you can always add saturation/contrast etc. globally via SweetFX/Reshade!

      I won't say it's impossible, but highly unlikely that there is frame loss from this particular mod. All I did was replacing one color palette dds file with another, which should make absolutely no difference frame-wise - at least I haven't noticed any change in performance while testing.

      Anyway, thanks for your review.
