Night darkness on Xbox one & PS4 version

Hi everyone!

 

There is one thing that I find annoying on the last gen version of gta v and that is the nights which I think are too bright, especially on the countryside and in forests which makes it look too bright and unrealistic. Turning down the brightness to zero can make nights on the countryside look better and darker but in the city it looks too dark and the daytime also looks a little bit too dark (everywhere) which makes the daytime look ugly. I don't own gta v on xbox one or PS4 version so I wonder if they've fixed this and made the nights darker on the current versions of gta v (especially on the xbox one)? If yes, how dark is it in forests and on the countryside?

 

I would be thankful for answers.

It's exactly the same. This covers PC as well.

Of course, lighting has proved drastically, but anywhere without lights is REALLY dark.

I still have the brightness set to zero, which I think looks the best. Anything higher makes nighttime too bright.

I'm playing the story through FPV with no HUD & darkness turned all the way down. It makes driving at night fun, and sort of thought provoking. Headbutting the road in peace. It seems darker to me on PS4 when compared to the PS3.

Okay, does the brightness set to zero makes city looks too dark on nighttime and the daytime too dark or does it look fine as well? Is the countryside so dark that you need to drive with headlights to be able to see?

It's exactly the same. This covers PC as well.

Do you mean on default brightness or lowered brightness?

Yeah the city is still very bright at day with the low brightness setting. It gets rid of the glow from white cars & clothes.

I don't need the headlights, but they definitely help. Daytime looks fine.

Thank you for you answers so far. It would also be very great if someone could add some screenshots which shows how dark/bright it is on nighttime and daytime in the city and on the countryside.

Play around with your television settings. I turn the game brightness all the way down then change the tv settings to what looks good for you.

Brightness low helps a lot, also turning the brightness down a bit in your monitor or TV can help too. On PS4 and I'm guessing Xbox one too, there's a colour range option in the settings, change that to full and if your TV supports it, it seems to make blacks darker and whites brighter. In the countryside it's so dark you won't see the Cougars coming. The flashlight attachment is a lot better when it's darker.

Turn down the brightness on the TV before you play with the internal settings. Worked for me, got a really nice balance. The 'bright' nights seem to only happen in LS, but that's because they've simulated the light pollution of LA.

 

Out in the desert of the wilderness, it gets really, really dark, barely able to see at times.

Signatures are dumb anyway.

Also, if you've ever used the weather cheat you'll realize just how many types of weather there are in game and how much they affect visibility. I wouldnt lower in game brightness too much, if you have a nice TV/monitor you really dont need to.

If you want to maximise the effects of night vision goggles you should turn the brightness all the way down.

Yes, I think that makes sense since I noticed quite similar effects in some gta v Xbox one/PS4 videos on youtube. One should try to set the right settings on the TV/monitor before playing with the in-game settings to achieve the correct brightness and color effects in the game.

But wouldn't you have to change the tv settings back for movies or other games? i prefer keeping the tv settings the same and alter the actual game brightness through the in game menus as this saves to the game settings for each individual game. And sometimes you get the helpful icon/logo in games brightness settings to help you get it correct

Calibrating the TV should be a separate task to display all content correctly. You could use a pattern such as http://goo.gl/757QTA in your console's web browser and adjust TV brightness so you can barely see the first, second, or third square. Then adjust the brightness setting in the game.

 

The game's brightness setting is not as useless as GTA IV but I still find it challenging to find a balance where night is dark enough but daytime is bright enough — there should be some glare in sunny Los Santos because of all the concrete, and shadows shouldn't be too dark. There is atmosphere and light pollution, so the night sky even in the country is not going to be the very darkest thing. There are actually few places in the game with no light. Even the mine shaft is dimly lit, so finding something that's really supposed to be totally black is a challenge.

Gta,other games, movies and shows look great with the same settings that I use. I set it to where the r* logo is not visible at all then adjust brightness one notch at a time until it appears. Light's are bright and dark areas are really dark.
