Natural Graphics Mod 3.8

Optimised for best cockpit view experience. Also improves FPS

  1. Chris Kennedy
    Attempt to replicate what the eye sees rather than a camera, to get the best onboard view for driving rather than create photo-real external screenshots. No chromatic aberration, lens flares or erratic autoexposure. Saves approximately 15fps over the default filters.

    To install: Unzip to the root of your AC install folder, run JSGME and activate Natural Weather and optionally Ben Lee + WagnumPI Clouds, then select the Natural_Mod PP filter in game. Set saturation to 100% in graphics options and exposure is set to 100% (Page Up/Page down when on the track).
    Unzip to the root of your AC install folder, run JSGME and activate Natural Oculus Rift Filter, Natural Weather and optionally Ben Lee + WagnumPI Clouds, then select the default PP filter (default.ini is used regardless of what you set) and set saturation to 100% in graphics options.

    The mod has to overwrite default.ini due to this bug: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/i...er-selection-does-not-work-minor-issue.34560/

    Suggest disabling Crepuscular Rays in the launcher in AC 1.7.5 due to this issue: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/i...m-all-angles-rather-than-just-from-sun.34556/
    Natural Photomode is for screenshots only, has higher quality DOF effect (very demanding) and other tweaks. HC version = High Contrast
    Thanks to @Ben Lee and @WagnumPI for allowing me to include their clouds in this mod.
    With Assetto Corsa closed:
    -Open JSGME, disable the previous versions of Natural Weather/Natural Oculus Rift Filter etc., then right click and delete them.
    -Follow normal install instructions

    If you dont use JSGME... you should be able to work out what to do
    If you prefer a slightly warmer image, edit the ppfilter ini files and try these values at the end:

    COLOR_TEMP=6250
    WHITE_BALANCE=6500

    Decrease COLOR_TEMP or increase WHITE_BALANCE for more warmth

      yes, very easy, if you are not familiar with installing mods which overwrite game files, you can use JSGME (included) or content manager which will automatically backup and restore the files when you install/uninstall the mod

    Perfect mod that I was looking for. Looks way better. I was desperately looking for something like this for playing in VR. With post processing on in VR the glare would be annoyingly bright and unrealistically the sky was just completely white. This fixed it exactly how I wanted. Recommended for anyone playing in VR.

    hands down the best and simplest filter out there, love it for all my track testing, if it looks good with this filter then it looks good with all the others, thanks man

      Cheers! That is a handy side effect of it having very conservative auto-exposure (basically off unless very dark scene), glad you found it useful

    been using this since version 3.0. and i'd like to say it's one of the best PP Filters mod by far. not only nice in terms of visual and photorealism, but also FPS saver compared with other PPs. a must have mod. many thanks.
