    Sunny Sky's AMD light graphics - first attempt to create a nice but light graphics mod without use of sweetfx and JSGME programs

  2. FYI to note for the forum and others:
    4x EQ is a waste compared to 4x regular in the CCC. 4x is the same as 4x in game and some cards work better with the ingame AA instead.

    EQ versions of MSAA in the driver have been shown to not be much better than normal and I can confirm in my testing. I have an r9 280 (same as 7950) and fps drop from 4x to 4xEQ is almost the same as 4x to 8x!

    Also, edge detect AA is another very costly setting. Tesselation in some games helps to run 6x or 8x max. I use that for most games. Surface format off helps in some games make better clear textures at minimal cost.

  3. Ooops, never mind. I went back to use application settings for AA in the driver.
    With CCC settings set in driver, the assetto can't use FXAA.
    Go to graphics, effects, set Fast Approximate Anti Aliasing - which takes away shimmering, even if you use 2x msaa!

    In display tab in AC, set anti aliasing samples to 4x.

    This is the setting I had used before and seems to be better looking for my r9 280.

  5. Just tried the eye of the storm mod, you weren't kidding about the clouds. The speed of them is the FPS killer, here is how it looks on mine...

    Here is a comparison shot of my filter and my Evening storm brewing weather (not released)

    I keep the clouds down to 55 types and the movement is a much slower drift but still quick compared to other weathers. Keep the experiments going, I'm following this one as I need some new good ideas.

    @blackcelica @Chris Kennedy
    any advice on where to go to with this mod? I find the Summers Day mod needs tweaking but the Torrential Rain mod looks very similar to the real nimbostratus?
