PostProcessFX v1.9.0

Enable additional post processing effects such as bloom, lensflare, different anti aliasing options and ambient occlusion.

Bloom and lensflare

Can be fully controlled with the ingame UI with the following settings:

- Enable Bloom: Enables the bloom effect.
- Intensity: The intensity of the bloom effect.
- Threshold: Lower means bloom occurs with lower light intensity.
- Spread: The amount that the bloom is blurred.
- Blur Iteration: Higher iterations cause a more smoothed blur.

- Enable Lensflare: Enables a lens flare effect.
- Intensity: The intensity of the lensflare effect.
- Threshhold: Lower means that less bloom is needed to create lensflare.
- Saturation: Higher saturation makes the lensflare more like the light color.
- Rotation: In which rotation the lensflare expands.
- Width: The width of the lensflare effect.
- Blur Iterations: Higher iterations cause a more smoothed lens flare ends.
- Style: Different lens flare styles.

Anti Aliasing

Supports FXAA and SMAA.

- FXAA is Fast Approximate Anti Aliasing.
- Five presets ranging from very low to ultra.

- SMAA is Enhanced Subpixel Morphological Antialiasing
- Four presets ranging from low to ultra.
- Enable Temporal: Enables SMAA T2x, this setting causes some flickering however.

- NOTE: Temporal only works with bloom enabled (You can set intensity to zero and have to toggle bloom once after enabling temporal).

Not as effective as the DynamicResolution mod, but cheaper and can be combined if desired.

Screen Space Ambient Occlusion

This is different implementation then the other SSAO mod, so chose one depending on preference.

- Intensity: How much the surfaces are darkened.
- Radius: Controls the spread of the occlusion.
- Sample Count: The amount of samples taken around each pixel, impacts performance.
- Occlusion: Either depth or depth + normal is used, looks slightly different.
- Enable Downsampling: Only sample at half resolution, impacts performance.

Additional Information

All effects can be disabled so they don't have any performance impact. An ingame UI is provided to tweak the options and can be toggled with F9 (default), the toggle key can be changed in UI. Here[] is a list of possible keycodes, fill in the string and not the corresponding number.

@MazK any chance that motion blur would be added back in? i haven’t been able to find another mod with that capability!

This still works perfectly fine for me

RenderIt is a newer alternative.

I like that this mod can adjust SSAO, but when I zoom in, all the shadows will flicker, I wonder if there is a mod that can adjust SSAO instead? I didn't find such an option in Render it!.

每次加载城市时,我都会看到模组的 UI,这很烦人,但我每次都按 F9 隐藏它。:\
