I just love how battered the BSG looked towards the later seasons :D

Even if you repair a ships hull, it shouldn't look new again.

Also, every other sector is full of nebulae and dust, any normal windshield would be so dirty you couldn't look through in a matter of minutes.

Hi there! Just added a variation to the settings that might be what you are looking for.
Also added some comparison screens.

Have looked at all three visuals.

I agree that the mid way settings are probably the best for me, too.

This mod is fantastic. Took Thurmonators advice and removed film grain and increased in game gamma. It looks absolutely amazing. Seriously just try the mod (I wasn't a fan of the mid look) and press scroll lock. The difference is unbelievable.

Just to note my FPS hit was 2 at worst.

I have made a companion mod for this mod that uses my customized SweetFX_settings.txt file.

Here: http://www.nexusmods.com/xrebirth/mods/330/?

and the message board: http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=359042

All you have to do is copy and paste over your existing SweetFX_settings.txt file and go. Make a backup in case you don't like the changes.

What I was looking to accomplish-->

Mostly No more silly rock/ice-glow.
Better Highway Effects
Reduce extreme lensflare effect
Reduce light-based fog/shine.
Keep the instrument panel bright and easy to read.
Make space darker which adds to the depth immersion.
Make shading around objects and stations more realistic.
Keep things fairly vibrant and colorful.
Make the HDR effects more realistic which makes planets look great btw.

Anyway, the game is much more beautiful now.

Try these setting and let me know what you think.

I tried this last night and it looks great. It must have taken ages to get these just right so I'm glad I didn't have to do all if the adjusting :) I use less gamma in game, but that is likely because of my monitor settings. Thanks again

Awesome MOD. Thank you for taking the time to do this :D

Ships in the future will look new forever.
With my new "Keep it Looking New Forever™" nanobot infused wax with nanobot technology.
The nanobots in "Keep it Looking New Forever™" will not only eat rust, grime, and general space nasties, but will also bring back missing structural components and even the original paint!!!
Get it today and bring back the "Pride" in your "Skunk" :D

Awesome, but the default version is too dark.
My eyes started going crazy after 15 minutes. xD
It actually did hurt. ^^

Its difficult to explain, but a middle option between the dark and the already mild option would be awesome. :D
The mild variation has some underlining green, which is kinda weird. xD
