Ambient Occlusion - Assetto Corsa

Alistair McKinley
First of all I want to thank you, Ilja, for your outstanding work and all the modders who have created and will create AO files for different tracks.

How to make it work:

1. Get Content Manager: https://acstuff.ru/app/

2. Get the latest Shaders Patch:

2a. Go to: https://acstuff.ru/f/d/28-shaders-patch-dynamic-lights

2b. Download the latest version: Discord Channel – # updates – lights-patch-v0.1.23-preview41.zip

2c. Choose AO files for the tracks you want: Discord Channel – # vertex-ao-library – download all the files you want/need.

2d. Disclaimer: There are many people working very hard on this thing. Please be patient if there is no file for the track you want yet.

3. Activate the new AO feature:

3a. Copy your AO track files into X:\Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\mods\Shaders Lights Patch\extension\vao-patches.

3b. Activate Ilja’s app “Shaders Extension Debug” in Content Manager (Settings - ASSETTO CORSA (thank you leclettico) – Apps).

4. Start your engine! :)

    interesting, could help for tracks but it will fight a bit with cars, since quite a few cars ( all kunos cars) have AO already baked in

    I think this topic is being discussed on Ilja's discord channel. Maybe he (and ohters) will find a way to get both together. Thanks for your comment. And thank you for your contributions to Assetto Corsa. :)
