Ultra+ for Dirt Rally 1.02 1.0

Enhanced Graphical effects for the beasty computer

  1. TemplarGFX
    Ultra+ is a small modification to Dirt Rally to push the graphics just a bit further for those with really good PC's (or suckers for pretty graphics :p)
    This is not designed to blow-your-mind with the difference, the game already pushes itself pretty hard, what this does do is maximise the detail on display, regardless of distance from the player.

    The following changes effect the base game engine, graphics settings then lower these for medium/low etc. Ultra uses the max settings :
    Particle Spawn Rate vs Speed (veh/wheel/etc) boosted for all effects
    Car Materials Specularity adjusted
    Object (stuff on the sides of roads) draw distances increased
    Tree detail draw distance increased
    Grass detail draw distance increased
    Shadow Detail draw distance, and low detail max distance increasd
    Motion Blur quality increased

    In-Game Settings Modified :
    Shadow resolution now at 2048 for high, and 4096 for Ultra
    Environment Map now at 1024 for high and 2048 for Ultra
    Tree meshes used in all passes on Ultra (better tree reflections / shadow / motion blur on trees)
    Mirror Resolution now 768 for high and 1536 for ultra

    In order for these new in-game settings to effect your current setup, you will need to reset your graphics by choosing one of the presets, then customising the graphics afterwards.


    *DISCLAIMER* This may bring your computer to its knees on Ultra with high AA!!

    Main Noticable Changes :
    Shadow detail no longer starts 200m down the road with a visible line where the shadow stops
    Grass now extends as far as you can see
    track-side objects always at max detail
    Over-all increase in fidelity at long ranges

    NOTE : Shadows AND Environmental Reflections on Ultra require a VERY powerful card!!

    This mod is great...Add's much more fine detail over normal.

    For those of you giving this one star, I can only guess you were not already running with settings maxed out because there is definitely a difference.

    Specs:
    i7-4790k OC'd
    32GB Ram
    Gigabyte 980 Ti G1

    I had no problem maintaining 100+fps

    I'm only using the particle mod but I really love what you've done with the kick up in Greece and Sweden.

    Could not notice the slightest difference except for a frame drop. Not trying to be hateful by rating 1 star, but just being truthful. Happy I backed up my files before downloading.

      No Problem. The changes are not in-your-face. But the quality increase is there (hence the frame drop). Its not for everyone
