    Some of the other mod tracks, ported over from GSC, suffer from what looks like extreme contrast - the whites are blinding and the colours look washed out. Does anyone know of a way to play around with the scn file to improve things a wee bit? AmbientColor maybe?

    I have messed around with Type=Directional Color=(220, 220, 220) Dir=(0.5, -0.9, 0.5) a little bit, but ...

    Apologies if this is a daft question. I'm completely scn illiterate.

    AMS uses other shaders, so changing these entries will not work.

    Okay, thanks for saving me a bunch of time pointlessly messing around. :thumbsup:

    Cheers

    There is a quick fix that I use often. Add "intensity" to the scn then adjust the value to however it makes it look best, depending on the track. I have ranged this value anywhere from .70 to .90. This will fix that glare in a hurry! ;)

    Color=(255, 255,245) Intensity=(0.80)

    Awesome! Thanks Dann, that helps a ton. Exactly the kind of tweak I was looking for.

    Can you give the list of tracks you adjusted. We could include this tweak in the next update.

    Oh, nothing from the megapack. Just some other miscellaneous stuff (mostly for CART).

    But thanks for the concern and the offer.

    Also, I noticed that Sweet Effects had turned itself on after the last update. I turned it back off and that helped a bit too.

    Agreed, the Megapack does not need the intensity adjustments as the shaders are already proper for AMS. ;)

    Before someone asks, Algarve still in development. New layout added and spring version created.

    So you will have 6 variations (2 seasons, 3 layouts).

    But Greg is finishing AIW so should be ok this week ;)

    Great tip Dann :) I loaded a SCE version of Sachsenring into AMS over the weekend and found some sections very white, glared and washed out. This fix has made a huge improvement! Thanks!

    Fantastic! We need more short and flowing tracks for the slower cars like the F-Vee, Mini, Lancer, Opala, the slower Caterhams, F-Trainer...

    Hungaroring is a nice track that's missing from the game. It'll be great to see it in AMS sometime. ;)
