That's subjective coming from Clumsy, we all know where the compas is going :mail1: Just joking. I like the same mod because i liked Avatar, and Pandora's lighting and colours are the best :jester:
I would like a mod with nice sky textures, some fog and overcast.
The rest is the story of NERO utility. Started as something small usefull and good, growing to something that is more damaging than usefull. And with 7 accounts in different galaxies just to download the thing.
But is just my opinion, and counting the amount of hours i spent playing the game, it's not an advised one :smoke:

I tried a lot of weather mods like RGM, Naturalux, Realistic brutal weather, Project next-gen, JBX graphics 2, Grimes mods...etc.
Personally, the best was JBX graphics 2 for me.
The main reason is the skybox, weather quality, skybox transition and performance impact on the game.
In launch option I have: -mm_max_resource_size 32 and no insufficient temporary buffer error happens, Naturalux is way too demanding for my weak computer and causes my game to stuttering.
The biggest inconvenience is this a paid mod and you need to spend 15,50€ but is worth because you get all other update for free.

here's the result with Nvidia Freestyle

I think the filter doesnt do any good to the pictures, but as i've said...they all feel the need to alter everything in the game with bad results. This game needs some skybox textures, some fog and overcast tweaking. The Brutal is too brutal, with other one i expect Na'avi people to invade the road from a tree or something.
The only one who nailed the weather was Piva, a balanced mod, not brutal or Pandora, overcast add-on is also on point. Sadly, as i've said, the skybox and transition looks bad.

I like Grimes' mods for weather. But also, an important factor is the screen that you are using, and its settings. A mod that looks cartooney in my screen might look realistic in an other monitor.

I agree with you, the filter is way too brutal and way too bright.

Luma curves is way too bright for me

Chroma curves look better for me

Hey.
I use brutal weather and freestyle. Filters moved to freestyle. And I did anti-aliasing through the inspector.

Wow, that looks really nice! Why don't you post your Freestyle settings in the special topic made for that?

The problem is that the screenshot of the filter list is not taken in freestyle. Or I'm not good at it, there are no such problems in reshade.
If I turn on the filter list and press altF2, there will be no list. I just installed additional filters in the ansel folder in geforce expiriens
