Here is the link for the modified Reshade Preset used in the shots, to take into account the changes made to the PBR lighting and TrueSky Weather engine by the Dovetail Development Team. Whilst the team are doing a great job with the development of FSW, personally I feel that Reshade is still required to give that definitive look we all want.

....Ronald many thanks,

Yes there really should be something to get excited about I think. FSW has the potential to just get better and better !

Pete.

.....for those of you who are enjoying tinkering with the fabulous Reshade tool, my last exhibits on the subject, feature the inclusion of the HDR shader.

If like me, you like flying near to hills and mountains, the HDR shader really does bring out shadowing on the dark faces away from illumination. Obviously it can still be used in all other terrains equally well too.

PS. Please feel free to adjust the settings for this Reshade Preset, remember it is provided as a starting point for you to play around with.

Awesome tweaking results Pete and thanks for the download link:
Q: What are the hardware specs. of your computer (since i'm pretty sure my computer can't handle FSW currently)

..Thanks again Ronald !!

It's shame any tweaking is really needed, ( you have to remember that the look is very much in the eye of the beholder too ) but comparing the 2 images may help you to understand why tweaking is undertaken.


FSW With Reshade - early Springtime.

...at present, ( in my opinion only of course ) the default Shaders make everything look so washed out and rather drab looking, here's hoping that the developers at Dovetail are still going to address this issue before final release.

Best Regards,

Pete.

PS,Ronald my set-up by todays standard is definitely mid-range. I am using Windows 10, with an ageing Core i7 Ivybridge processor @ 4.3 ghz and 16gb of ram. Graphics is provided by a NVidia 1060 gtx 6gb. I have made some changes to the FSW. cfg file but
have to say so far it runs very well on this set up.

.....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.

Regards,

Pete.
Hi Pete,

Sorry to bother you. I've just come across this thread and think your preset looks superb. I tried to download it using the links but none of the links seemed to work. Is it still available as I would love to add it to my FSW, if at all possible. Thank you :)

...Calum,

Many thanks for your comments.

I pulled the download links,because I had an updated Shader Preset ready to supersede the existing versions available.

On reflection however, as there appears to be little interest here for this sort of thing ( being primarily a design website ) my presets are no longer available.

Why not have a go your self, here is the Reshade website link -

https://reshade.me

Follow instructions found earlier on in this post, to help install and set up Reshade.

Well thanks for taking the time to post images
As you say might be that pbr 2 will fix the distant view to add sharpness and better color to the sim

Hot dang! Those are some stunningly realistic looking shots, that for sure. They look like the aircraft has been "Photoshopped" onto a real picture.... :stirthepo

.......thanks Ronald !!

Here's another chance to get my latest Reshade Preset - This is the one that I am currently using and is seen in the latest screenshots with FSW and Switzerland Pro ( FSX ).
Please remember, when using Reshade to improve the look of the exterior ground imagery in FSW, it will always have an impact on the rendering of the light and dark inside of the cockpit.

As this Reshade Preset has been especially developed for use with Aerial Imagery, it may help with your own Scenery Packages that use it.
