Wagnum's Graphics Mod 7.4

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

  1. WagnumPI
    CURRENTLY BROKEN DUE TO 1.9 UPDATE...

    (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, SweetFX 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 A-Wagnum or A-Wagnum S (Sharper, less bloom) filter.

    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 by moving the weather/cloud files from the MOD folder included and place them in their necessary location (Full detailed explanation of where everything needs to go is on page 15 on the support section under post 289) Do this also with the filter in the system folder provided.

    To Remove Vignette for triple screen players
    Open the filter using notepad (steamapps/common/assettocorsa/system/cfg/ppfilters/A-Wagnum.ini) scroll down until you find the section named vignette and lower the setting or drop to zero to completely eliminate it

    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.

    Screenshot_ks_toyota_gt86_riverside_10-9-116-23-13-14.jpg
    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.



    Please review to let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions?

    I've been giving you five stars for quite some time - and every time I think you reached perfection, you come up with some little tweak that makes your mod even better. Congrats, mate.

    Useful, practical and good. Looks way better than the regular ones, and save me a lot of time from having to set all the weather stuff in my own.

      Cheers Jim, means a lot! Unless someone finds a way to make further improvements or Kunos make further adjustments that we can play with, I dont think there's many more ways to improve the looks so perhaps I may have ended up victorious! ;) On another note just bought RTB to give track building a try so wish me luck!

    As always smashing addon to Assetto Corsa, Updated all the time so much so i can safely say Wagnum has OCD. Doesn't hit FPS that much and makes screenshots look like they are real cars.
    1. WagnumPI
      Author's Response
      With things I get a passion for i certainly do have OCD! Hoping Kunos will open up some more tools/effects for us to play with so to carry on with further improvements. If only I knew how to use 3D programs, i'd get on the case to make a track that compliments the filter... Thanks for the review!

      Author's Response
      That's great to hear! Have finally started hitting a wall on what i can improve really as pretty happy with the colours and lighting now. If Kunos give us more tools to play with in updates however there couuld be further improvements to be made! :)

    The new sharp filter settings just blow me away. I'm driving with Oculus Rift for most of the time and this makes it absolutely stunning!!
    I cannot appreciate your work enough. I am trying out some others from time to time, but none compares to these glorious settings you have produced.
    Need to cry everytime I put on the Oculus.... :-) Thx for all your commitment in the past and future!

    Love the mod - thanks for the constant updates. One thing I'm slightly unclear about - with the mod active how many weather folders should there be in the weather folder? exactly 7? Because I have two extra folders - 8_clear2 and 10_night - presumably from other mods - should I delete these folders?
    1. WagnumPI
      Author's Response
      Dont have to as they shouldnt have an affect on mine. My ones are just direct replacements to the originals so you can use them online, plus an attempt at night time racing :)
