Thank you very much for your hard work. This mod is excellent!

I started with the environment mod and then used the files from this mod (timecyc, visualsettings and sharders. still have the enhanced trees from the other mod, maybe more). I've been using it for a few days now and I still can't get over how much better the game looks.

The game performance is at least the same, maybe better.

I'm not sure exactly what you can or cannot modify, but I will make suggestions based on what I think.


1. The reflection level could be reduced a tiny bit on the car paint, the glass looks great though.

2. The bloom seems a bit hot (meaning intense or a little too much) in certain places at certain times, but it's hard to complain when it looks perfect 99% of the time.

3. Headlights seem a bit too white or bright. Anybody else have thoughts on that?

I can't think of anything else that I noticed so far. It's truly a great mod!!

I only liked the reflections tbh. The horribly bright greenish 'extrasunny' is absolutely terrible. It frys my eyes!

Im not sure which mod is my favorite, Enviroment or Visual...
I think the best thing in your mod are the car reflections.
Also I liked some weather types, especially the foggy...
On the other way there were too shiny moments in my opinion.
Is it possible to use the Enviroment Mod and your car reflections or is this a big thing which cant be seperated?
If it is, which lines in which file I have to change?

I know, my english isnt the best. ;-)

take the changed reflection settings from this mod and put it into the same named file for enviroment mod (dont know what the settings called or where its located). Had to do that to get Far away depth of field and original game motion blur for ultimate tweak mod and environment mod combined.

Thx n11lc2.
I hoped there would be an easier way to do this...

Edit:
I didnt find the difference.
If someone knows the solution please tell me.

Timecyc.dat, but that also replaces the lighting and weather ingame.

There isn't any tool that we can get only reflections and paste them in other mod like enviorement v3?

There is, get TymecycIV, then change global reflection for every weather, this can be done with any timecyc.dat.

I've put visual IV reflections amount ( 1000 ) together with GTA Environment but it's nothing special.It looks better with the normal GTA IV timecyc.
Anyway, the only problem is when I edit the timecyc I get stars in the sky, but all the time.From 1AM to 1PM.And in the night it gets worse - I get more than 100 stars... at the day only 5 ~ 20, but it's anoying.Someone know what can I do? Thanks

ive got to say that this is by far the best mod ive seen yet, cant wait for more versions of this mod, although it feels finished for the most part. ive made a post about this mod in the official gtaIV forum because ive noticed R* watching this thread a lot recently.

I got a few frames out of it, very nice job! smile.gif

However I seem to stutter when i skid in a car, other than that my game is very smooth and looking nice now.

I don't like it as much, the bloom is way too powerful making everything hard and blurry to see. Otherwise, everything else is great especially the weather colgate.gif

Is there any way to lower the brightness of the game when the weather is extra-sunny and the time is noon... It's like very glary

I like this mod, I know it still beta, but you should modify extra sunny... it's not too much realistic, you know, you should put clouds too, 'cause here in my country when I go to the beach and it's 35ºC I can see a lot of clouds.Days without clouds are cold days, 'cause the wind make clouds dissapear, except if it's raining...

no real improvement has been made all the time i've been gone. And you dare to call this abomination a mod that improves visuals. we only can export from Zmod now, and that is all, not a single stupid minor,yet irritating, thing had been fixed. mad.gif
