interesting, how "update proof" is this and will you be actively maintaining this? would probably be easier with workshop support as well.

is there a performance change when using this, anyone tried?

It's reshade injector so unless the game completely changes the rendering engine the updates shouldn't matter.


It's not giving me any performance hits.

The mod should work with any version. Doens't change anything related to the game files.

About performance, yes you will have an impact. Nothing important imo. 3-5 fps +/-

Hello, I want to know how to make mod like you, whether there are any tutorials to learn?
Thank you.

Just google "reshade tutorial" or "reshade guide". Is a very easy to learn program.

Hi mate :)

Didnt even know that you are modding UA:D aswell as War on the Sea with your great TTE - Mod !!!

Do you plan further Mod Development ? Also gameplaywise ?? Is this even possible here ???

Besides that, you should ask the Developers for an extra Mod Subfolder here in Community, like its done in WatS...otherwise this thread will vanish again soon

/Cheers and Peace for all of us

o7!

Sadly i already took a look at the game files and UAD is not modding friendly as WOTS. So don't expect to ever see anything similar to TTE here. What is possible to do is a visual tweak/improvement using reshade or a similar program like i did here or edit the save game. However take note that the devs already mentioned that editing save games is a great way to cause new bugs making life harder for the developers to fix the game so i don't recommend anyway.

Of course maybe someone in the future can find new possibilities where i fail to see them , so there is always hope.

Happy hunting, the Baron.

Unpack and place the files in: C:\....\Steam\steamapps\common\Ultimate Admiral Dreadnoughts<----' /New Horizons ' folder

Do I put the folder in as it is?
Or do I put in the file?

After you unpack the zip file you will get a folder called "New Horizons" with another folder with the same name inside.
You need to place the content inside of the last new horizons folder in: C:\....\Steam\steamapps\common\Ultimate Admiral Dreadnoughts

Happy hunting, the Baron.
YouTuber "La Abadia del Gamer" is using the "New Horizons" mod in their UAD videos. For the player's interested to know how it works and how the visuals change, I highly recommend taking a look.
