Hi pbeeby,.... I think for Early Access, FSW is really starting to come on now. Since the introduction of Truesky ( although not perfect yet ) the whole atmospherics have changed considerably.
Even in this early stage, you can make the default look of FSW look even better by the use of Reshade.
Find the latest version here - https://reshade.me

Here is a download link for the Reshade Preset file, used to enhance the look of the Default experience and make it look like the above, making for a much richer looking environment overall.
Hope you like it,
PS, If you need installation instructions, please feedback here.
Hi Pete,...Manochvarma, you are on the right track.
Let the Reshade 3.0.8 Installer download the collection of Standard Shader Files from github.com .
You should find, that if Reshade is installed correctly within the FSW main folder, when you run FSW, you will now see a banner at the top of the FSW loading screen, saying that Reshade is loading the default Shaders.
If you see this, all you now have to do is place my Reshade Preset file ( FSW1.ini )
Into the main FSW folder.
The Next time you Start FSW, you should see a difference in its appearance, as
Reshade should have loaded the FSW1 preset file of mine.
If you press shift F2, you will see the main Reshade Menu come up. This is where further customisation of the preset is made possible, if you so wish.
I recommend that you have a back up copy of the preset, just in case.
Hope you like it, get back to me if you have any further issues.
Hi Pete, this is my screenshot......it's all about playing around with it, until it's right for you.
What you will find, is that it is incredibly difficult to get 1 preset to suit all environments, you'll find you will have to strike a balance for the most part and my preset gives you a very good start.
Hi Pete,....Manochvarma, I think there is some sort of Reshade issue going on there.
A couple of things to check, is that inside of the newly installed " reshade-shaders " folder contained in your main FSW Folder, contains 2 Folders ( Shaders and Textures ). You need to check that both
folders have files contained within them.
The second thing to check, is that when you press ShiftF2 and the reshade command window is
displayed, Check that the correct install path is shown for the FSW1 .ini file. As shown below.
