Wagnum's Graphics Mod Final release

Filter/weather mod for a realistic look with a subtle flare to make AC look as good as it handles :)

    (Above Picture is in Showroom Mode using my in game filter - Unfortunately cant achieve skies like that while racing...)

    Not expecting anything but if you wanted to donate feel free :)

    ***To get the most of this games visuals use the following as it is a game changer!***

    For my personal settings that add realism while not denting your lap times due to camera looking the wrong way see the following;
    https://s17.postimg.org/rfgaajc33/image.jpg

    What I have aimed to achieve with this mod is as realistic as possible with a subtle flare. Day light being nice and bright, overcast weather being atmospherically gloomy, and everything else in between looking just right :)

    This filter can be used for all weather and although it's designed for in car view, I still use it for taking all my exterior photo's etc.

    TO INSTALL
    Unzip the folder and place the contents of the Wagnums graphics Mod folder into the Assetto Corsa root folder. Once done run the JSGME.exe and select Wagnum weather (or TTL), Reshade and Peter Boese Clouds and activate.

    Please note that JSGME will not remove the standard clouds at first so you will have to do this manually. Go to the following location and delete all files except the ones named Wagnum - Assetto Corsa/Content/texture/clouds. After this has been done, using JSGME to reinstall the default ones or remove them will work.

    Once in game you will need to select one of the following;
    A-Wagnum - My standard filter
    A-Wagnum Night - For Night weather (adjusted a couple things to accomodate weather)
    A-Wagnum S - Less bloom for those who prefer a sharper look for photos etc
    A-Wagnum NV - No Vignette for people using triple screens

    A-TTL - Use these filters with the TTL Weather

    To return to standard weather and clouds just run JSGME again, deactivate my mods and activate the default ones instead.

    If you do not like using JSGME or are having problems, try doing it manually following this video;

    Some of the other great filters out there aim to achieve a real look but they either cut out a lot of the effects to try and achieve this or go over the top with them to make it look as flashy as possible (most arcade racing games do this as well).
    Cutting out all the effects removes things that perhaps only camera lenses pick up rather than the eye but if you are clever with these effects and use them just a touch, you not only make the game look more appealing but more realistic since these slight effects end up creating imperfections within the image and so it no longer looks too clean, crisp and clinical.
    Going the other end of the spectrum, if you have the capability to add these effects a lot of people go over board with them since they think "well whats the point in using them if you can hardly see them". My answer to that is like ive said before, if you use sparingly it removes that clinical edge so that the image looks more real.

    In real life the world is so much more detailed and the way light works is so much more complicated than in this game engine so without subtle effects you will never get it looking closer to reality.

    If you would like to see direct weather comparison shots from the same spot please refer to post 431 & 432 on page 22 of the support pages.

      I assume Kunos have gone and screwed about with things over the last 6-8 months as I havent changed anything with my mod, just added the filter and reshade for the gbw mod. I dont have the time to tinker anymore so feel free to fix the issues Kunos have crerated with updates and upload yourself. More than happy for the community to take over if they want to, just dont have the time for it now. Personally after trying my filter with gbw's weathers i'm more than happy with the result so i'd say that is the way to go since you have a lot more variation and some truly beautiful skies

      In the install folder you have two folders, TTL gbW Filter and WGM. Ignore my mod and open the TTL bgw one. The "TTL gbW.ini file is the filter so this needs to be put in "system/config/ppfilters" folder. The contents of the Reshade folder just needs to be placed into the root folder of AC (allow it to copy over existing files) Your then good to go... Apologies been a while and forgot not everyone knows where the files need to go..

    First of all I'd like to make it clear that I fully appreciate the work that went into this and the variety of options it gives.

    However to my eyes vanilla with natural filter is way more believable. Say I go to Austria and set 17:00 mid clouds. With vanilla I can actually believe that it's that place weather and time of a day. With this mod - not so much. It's too dark, too exaggerated and feels wrong for the time and place. I have tried pretty much all the possible settings, starting with the recommended one and they all feel off one way or another.

    It's way more varied then vanilla, but unfortunately less realistic. That's my honest feeling.

    That said, I would gladly rate it five stars, if only the author would provide a instruction of how to FULLY remove the mod, not just disable it via JSGME.exe for people like me, who don't plan turning it on in the future and would like to keep the installation as clean, as possible.

    The mod looks nice, but when it is enabled my game crashes. As soon as I disable it and go back to stock, the game starts working again. Really wish I could get it to run properly.

    Hello again, I appreciate, that you've made mod so much, but I've got 1 problem with it, I can't do any screen-shots when I'm in-game, F12 doesn't work, I just can't, maybe it's issue caused by this settings-stripe (when I start any race) on top of screen. huh?
    1. WagnumPI
      Author's Response
      Should still be able to take screenshots as the mod should not be affecting that in any way at all. Correct me i'm wrong but F8 is the screenshot button, not F12?

    This revision of WGM is just superb!
    It was one of my first mods I've downloaded for AC, IMO this is THE MUST have mod. This mod will give your AC more realistic look without sacrificing too much FPS.
    I can even imagine how many hours of hard work has been put into this project and what's even better WagnumPI is constantly updating this, respect!

    Keep up the good work, sir! Well done!

    Hi, Love your mod and I thought you may find this info useful. Its from an old JSGME PDF Manual I found, let me know if you want a copy of it:

    "You can remove files from the game by including in your package empty text files with "-remove" added to the file name ie "filename.ext-remove". Files will be returned when your mod is disabled

    I struggle to understand anyone who would rate this less than five stars. All the work and hours with all the updates I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates quality work. I'm fairly new to Assetto and this should be your very first mod that you download. Many thanks

    WGM is one of my "must have" Mods, and appreciate your reliable and timely updates.
    I have a Question...How does one create a little bit of "glow" for the car headlights, taillights and brakelights.? Not overblown, but a realistic 'atmospheric'(??) glow..
    I had it for a while, but it disappeared, or maybe it is too subtle now.
    Is it something I can change in one of the .cfg files?
    1. WagnumPI
      Author's Response
      It's to do with the bloom effect in the filter. Open the filter file up in notepad and play around with the GLARE section. Particularly the bloom luminance levels. Note this will also affect all other bloom effects but using the settings within the GLARE section you can control how you want it to work somewhat plus it's strength :)

    Really bad. pp filters are all looking foggy. Original is a lot better than this mod.
    1. WagnumPI
      Author's Response
      It's to give the impression of atmospheric fog /moisture in the air which fades the vibrancy of things in the distance.
      Have a look round in the real world and unless you live in a very dry climate you'll see this. It also helps get rid of very sharp unrealistic edges in the image as things far away very rarely look incredibly sharp like they do without this effect. Obviously not to everyone's taste but looks like plenty of people appreciate my literal days and days of work...

    Always used your mod and I am a big fan of your work mate. Assetto Corsa looks absolutely awesome with your mod. Unfortunately I can't keep graphics at Ultra anymore because I own a Rift and I am forced to set many graphic settings to medium or low to be able to run it Multiplayer with 90fps, even Post Process effects I need to turn it off.. Also not sure if the Sweet FX you use in your mod works with Rift. Would be a good improvement in image quality if it works since Rift image is a bit blurry. Also with Rift on, the only loadable pp effects is the default, so it wont recognize your mod. I am glad for you keep up the pace and for your effort to make such great add on to my favorite game, congratulations.

      Author's Response
      cheers mate! That's a shame only the default filter runs on the RIft, didnt know that and hope they change it for when I can afford one. If you wanted to bump up the sharpening in sweetfx open the .txt file in the sweetfx folder and up the lumasharpen settings :)
