Wagnum's Graphics Mod 7.6

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 :)

    For my personal settings that add realism while not denting your lap times due to camera looking the wrong way see the following;

    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 one of the following;
    A-Wagnum - My standard filter
    A-Wagnum Night - For Night weather (adjust just 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

    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.

    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.

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

    very clever night time making the sun look like moon, but I think is too much dark the sky and the street no ?

      maybe your right. Am currently reworking clear sky colours as just not happy with them. Will perhaps brighten the night weather a tad also then

    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!
