Welcome to my first graphic mod


In this thread I'm going to answer all your questions and I will share the progress of this mod.



What is APEX graphics overhaul?


APEX graphics overhaul is a GTA V graphics mod. It will include new textures, new timecycle and weather.xml, custom ENB/Reshade



Is APEX graphics overhaul a realistic graphic mod?


Kind of, I don't promise the most photorealistic ever, but from my point of view it looks cinematic/realistic




                                                                                   Volkswagen Beetle by GreenAid


There are many graphic mods out there, why should I try this one?


I tested alot of graphic mods, I'm a passionate photographer and cinematographer. I had my issues with all of them. Some where to bright, some to dark. Some hadn't the lighting that I prefer, some had,

but there was not a all in one solution for me, so I decided to make my own one. I can't tell if it's the right for you, or not. Test it!



How is the WIP?


Reshade/ENB is 100% done.

Timecycle and weather are 30% done so far.

Textures 10% done.



What kind of textures are you going to replace?


A lot of textures, from stones to walls. From buckets to newspapers.
I try to replace as much as I can.

But I don't replace streets or vegetation, because there are so good mods out there that I don't have to do it.



                                                                                                                                           Ferrari LaFerrari by VANS123


                                                                                                                                           Lamborghini Centanario by GTA5KoRn


Will you use/copy parts/lines of other graphic mods?


Only if I really like them and get the permission to use them. Of course every Author will be credited.



Where can I see the work of progress besides GTAForums?

That Mustang shot really got my heart. This is the first Graphic Mod which I would be really interested to try and play with it. Can't wait, good luck.

Hmm, I am usually not a person that likes the looks of those graphics mods (especially ones that use SweetFX) because most people f*ck up the color palette and contrast.

However, it seems like you know what you're doing. I like it, those screenshots look amazing. Looking forward.

Yesterday I had a texture replce session. So Beverly Hills is nearly done with textures. 


I improved the LUT in Reshade


Timecycle is paused at the moment. I will have a look at Natural Vision Remastered first. The pics I saw are incredible and if it will really look like this, I will people suggest downloading this instead. 


If it doesn't suit my reshade/ENB I'm still going to finish the timecycle ;)

And a first trailer is incoming this week

Looking at the screenshots above I have to say, rather beautiful. If there's another I can say, when it comes to graphic mods, the more screenshots the merrier. If I could say anything it would be only that the overall impression is that you have  sepia type colorings to your settings. If this is not desired, the settings are probably in SweetFX to change that depending on the filters you're using. Nice work, keep it up. -P
