    good and bad conditions

    HD-cloud textures included for realistic skies

    gbW is the best solution to have realistic weather surroundings in Assetto Corsa. Everything (weather files, PPFilter and optional Reshade effects) is designed and optimized to create
    the best cockpit experience you can get.

    If you think, this is worth a donation. I would be glad.

    compatible weather for online sessions:
    (this weather do not need Content Manager)
    1_heavy_fog, 2_light_fog, 3_clear, 4_mid_clear, 5_light_clouds, 6_mid_clouds, 7_heavy_clouds

    For more default weather sets, have a look at:
    http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/gbw-vanilla-sets.15023/

    not usable for online sessions / Content Manager requirement:
    All weather named with "gbW" are not compatible for online usage and require "Content Manger". Its unique weather-loading feature is absolutely necessary for this modification. The weather inside this pack are designed to work best with the "real condition" function of CM - an automatic selection by live weather data.

    Reshade for more brightness and better HDR
    If you have problems to run Reshade, try this:
    rename:
    dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll
    and
    dxgi.ini to d3d11.ini

    Thanks to Guillaume Francois

    !!! Before installing - please remove prior version completely !!!

    content:
    - 1 PPFilter + Reshade postprocessing (custom gbW shader)
    - 7 default weather (heavy fog, light fog, clear, mid clear, light clouds, mid clouds, heavy clouds)
    - 39 custom textured weather (clear/few,scattered,broken and heavy clouds/overcast/rain,drizzle,dust,fog)
    - weather with custom particle effects (mud & spray)

    - 8 dusks, dawns and nights

    Hi Peter !

    I've just tried your new release (i've stop playing AC for a few month), with different cars and tracks (and weather of course).

    And it's a blast !

    I don't know what you can add but the result right now it just amazing !

    Thanks a million times, i think it's one the things that keep me playing AC !

    Incredible job. One question: what are the differences between _gbW and _gbW AE pp filters? Thanks in advice.

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how absolutely amazing and valuable your work is. Much appreciated.

    I've always looked for something to bring that lifelike light that GT (and now GT Sport) is so good at to AC and always failed at finding a complete package combining post processing, clouds (most important IMO) and weather with color curves. Well Sir, you have done it!

    This really brings AC to life and the implementation and integration with CM plus the ease of use and well documented step by step instruction is second to none.

    I'm still playing with my own PP filter as my preference is somewhat on the larger than life side when it comes to contrast and color but with your work as a basis I'll finally be able to reach my multi year journey to find the 'perfect' filter.

    I know it's way out there but given the impressive work you've already accomplished with weather, spray and surface conditions - can we hope for some sort of wet road surface/rain/snow implementation? Your working on anything like that.

    In any case, thank you very much.

    Absolutely terrific, this in tandem with Content Manager breathe new life into Assetto Corsa.
    The only AC default weathers I could stand were Clear and Mid Clear, the rest was quite depressing.
    With this PP I love them all, default and GBW.
    Thanks!

    Best visual mod in AC. Makes everything just a bit more atmospheric! Added with the textures you can drive in any weather, any season, any environment.

    Been a while since been on here but you've put an amazing amount of work in. Looks fantastic and with a bit of tweaking to my own personal taste it looks better than brand new titles like PC2 and even Forza 7 at times! Bloody impressive considering it's an aging game now... Well done mate
