    Hey dude, get some good old sleep and resume the mod tomorrow. Your health is more important bro! What's the difference between the flare options btw?

    I hope 0.8 will look like this. Vanilla looks washed-out.

    Can we have a re-upload of the MaLDo stutter fix with a mirror that's working? ;)

    In regards to color grading, I believe the E3 2012 version was leaning toward the yellow/green end of the spectrum, as opposed to the red/blue approach in TheWorse screens. The Vanilla's color grading is basically neutral in comparison to both.

    Digital Foundry's "Was there really a Watch Dogs graphics downgrade?" article has a few good high quality screen caps of the original E3 demo, which I used to do some comparisons in-game w/SweetFX.

    The E3 2012 Demo also seemed a lot brighter at night than the Vanilla, although that might have been due to the video compression and heavier post-processing.

    It's not done yet. And if you remove the blue color in photoshop still the colorgrading is applied. The specific colorgrading that was in the screenshot was for storms and rain. I'll show a comparison in day light from vanilla though.

    It doesn't matter if it was for rain. Sidewalks and streets don't have a blue overtone to them. I'm telling you it doesn't look natural. Take someone elses advice for once.

    Just looked that up. God... that was depressing. The daytime lighting was compeltely gutted from the game. What we have now looks extremely flat, whereas the earlier demos had really nice global illumination. It's like they sucked all the atmosphere out.

    Anywho... took a few screens. The 2nd one is one that I redid with the proper hat :p

    I did tried it, and I have good news. I was used TheWorseMOD + MySettingsBloom and had some bad stutter, and after the last ubisoft patch the game being to much unplayable.....so I did this process and the stutter stops....

    Thanks for advice.

    Another rain guy .. who cares about rain .. game looks good in rain even in vannnila. We need good looking day time. I personally think it is too much blue .. like a SweetFX preset.

    First post, but what I really want is the icons for the keyboard and controller to be removed. I really liked the simplicity, not so cloggy look of the 'E3 preview'. The icons still seem to be there if you're not directly focused on them (street lights, bridges, etc), but once you look at them they transform into the 'hint' with the button, battery amount, and description.

    Reverting the icons for street lights, bridges, cameras, hacking people, and entirely removing the icons for getting into vehicles (or at least removing the text) would give it that look and feel it used to have.
    The current icons just seem obnoxiously out of place. :bang:

    I just wanted to show the changes, I never said I was going to overuse the blue tone for the storm lighting. Some people just think I release screenshots of the final thing lol.

    There are different colorgrading settings right now, one will be for day light and cloudy and the other one for rain and storm. To make the environment feel different.

    And i still believe we saw Nvidias GI works early implementation working here later changed to a pre baked for obvious performance and multiplatform target hit reasons ;)
