good and bad weather 3.2

custom weather with HD-Clouds and one ppfilter for the best immersion in AC

  1. Peter Boese

    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)
    - 38 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

    Excelent Weather mod, possibly the best for AC out there. What would be awesome is an option in CM to change the track Quality (Green, Excellent, etc) depending on the weather to change the grip while raining. But about visuals and overall looking this is absolutly perfect. BTW: The performance impact is quite low even on my rig which is noch an high end pc (using an old phenom x4 955 and a gtx 760). Thank you so much for this!

      Yes, you have to use Content Manager. BTW, its a shame not to use CM. The feature list is mind blowing.

      Thanks! About gamma and exposure - do you use the gbW PPFilter and gbW Reshade settings. The pictures are directly taken from game. So there have to be something other between AC and the graphic-card...

    Super arbeit, dass wertet AC schon sehr auf muss ich sagen! Vor allem der "Sprühnebel" hat es mir angetan :D
    Habe dazu aber noch ne Frage... Vielleicht kennst du die Mod Nordschleife wet? Wollte gbw in Kombination mit diesem Mod ausprobieren da ja dort die Oberfläche des Asphalts nass aussieht. Jedoch musste ich feststellen das der Sprühnebel dort wohl nicht funktioniert. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit das irgendwie einzustellen, mit einer ini beispielsweise? Oder ists vielleicht doch nicht so einfach? Hoffe du kannst mir da helfen, wäre mal geil gbw mit dieser mod zu erleben! Danke ;)

      Da muss man noch selber Hand anlegen. In der Nordschleife wet mod ist die Oberflächenreibung tiefergesetzt. Der Partikelmod in gbW wirkt nur wenn Reibung da ist, bzw. Wenn die Reibung über 80% ist. In der Nords Mod gibt es eine surface.ini. In der werden die verschiedenen Oberflächen eingestellt. Bei der Hauptoberfläche muss man den friction-Wert auf über 80 setzen.

    Man the latest version is a master piece! The spray particles at the rainy weather conditions are such a huge improvement of imersion, espacially on the Nordschleife! Would rate 8 stars if possible.

      Thank You! Yes the rain spray does its boost for immersion. I started this a year ago and now with the custom particles option in CM - bang....

    Very beautiful mod but it's not shown during replay. Did I lose something? Thanks!
    1. Peter Boese
      Author's Response
      Thanks. "...it's not shown during replay"? Do you mean, you see no clouds? The Field of View of the TV cameras in replay is very low. So you have a small focus on the cars and because of the graphics engine, you just see a very small part of the cloud, which is blurred out. If this is not what you meant, please contact me in the support section of mod.

    This makes racing much more immersive and works well in VR (aside from some reshade settings having no effect in the HMD).
    Thank you.
