Why do some tracks have strange white line on horizon?

    I noticed last night on the Highland track there was a strange white line on the horizon, yet at Dumas there was not. I only seen this since I loaded the newer shaders in. Is there some reason for this ?

    What newer shaders did you load? That looks like an alphatest issue which is a shader issue most likely.

    Which versions of Custom Shaders Patch and Sol do you have? Shaders Patch 125 and 127 only work well with Sol 1.2 RC1.

    Oh, well, I have Sol 1.2 RC1 and Shaders Patch 127 and I don't get that effect on Highlands.

    It's a compatibility issue with some tracks. It can be solve over configuration files. They are called "track light configs". Look in the install guide of Sol. On the last pages it's described how to install them. Or you could use the automated install over CM.

    The only thing I could find was a bunch of lines and an NPTC file, but I couldn't actually find an ini file, but there were about 730 lines, very confusing to say the least I'm not quite sure what to do

    Please look in the sol install guide. There it is described. On the last 2 pages. You have to download the full pack. There are much more tracks where this happens! Also with the newest Shader patch versions, an automatic download of these files is introduced. But I recommend you to do the manual download. Then you are safe to have the newest versions.

    I finally downloaded it, but couldn't figure out how to get it into AC. I did manage to use Content manager and install version 311 which finally got rid of the bright line on the horizon.
    With the manual download I had no idea where to put the files even with the instructions.

    Like it's said in the manual:
    4. Copy the folders “cars” and “tracks” to AC root folder /extension/config. →
    5. Overwrite existing files…

    You know where your AC root folder is?

    I did look in the manual actually, but couldn't find an Extension/Config folder. I also looked online and the folders they had setup didn't match mine exactly.
    As I said I did the update through Content manager for just The Highland track and no others, as I'm having no issues with them right now.

    If you couldn't find it - create it manually then. I seem to recall I didn't have it either, but that's because Sol was my very first shader-related mod I was installing.

    Create the folder tree structures as shown in manual and/or github website, download only the Highlands-related files ("ks_highlands.vao-patch", "ks_highlands.ini", "ks_highlands__buildings.kn5"), put them in relevant folders and you're good to go. Just checked, with these patches and Sol 1.2 the horizon renders allright.

    I really don't understand why you cannot find a assettocorsa/extension/config folder as it is already included in the Shader Lights Patch ! :(
    If you cannot find it .... I'm even not sure you did install SLP correctly :confused:

    NB: try to have a look at the assettocorsa main folder and subfolders to understand how the files are structured.
    Once you understand how folders, sub-folders and files are structured .... it'll be easier for you to install mods even manually. ;)
