NaturalVision Remastered – Install Guide

Introduction

Contents

NaturalVision Remastered (NVR) is a “work-in-progress” visual overhaul mod. Numerous changes were made to the environmental weathers, lighting system, ambient colors, tonemapping, weapons system, select textures and much more in order to blur the line between fantasy and reality. The goal was to try and make GTAV look visually similar to Southern California in real life. In order to achieve this, research on the Los Angeles (Los Santos) and Salton Sea (Sandy Shores) regions was conducted using hundreds of photos and hours upon hours of video footage. All of this was necessary in order to produce the most realistic visual experience currently possible with GTAV’s limited game engine.Reading: how to install naturalvision remastered Fun Fact: More than 4000 hours have been spent working on this mod. These things take time. The aesthetic behind NaturalVision Remastered was inspired by Forza Horizon, Watch_Dogs, GTAIV and a variety of other games. Numerous visual details were taken from those titles and remade in GTAV’s various weathers. Unlike most graphics mods, NaturalVision Remastered does not rely on ReShade for its looks. This allows for players to enjoy a massive boost in performance. There are numerous optional add-ons included with this mod, ranging from a depth of field modifier, motion blur enhancer, LSPDFR related tweaks and much more. This gives users the ability to customize the game to their liking. It also includes an optional ENB and ReShade package which produces effects such as improved vehicle anti-aliasing, sharpening, deband and more.Read more: how to say 99 in french Please make sure to check everything out so that you can enjoy this mod as much as possible.

Requirements and General Info

Recommended Specs With NaturalVision Remastered, your in-game performance will be about the same as vanilla. The only thing that matters is how you currently run GTAV without mods and the FPS you receive on average. If you plan on using ReShade then you may experience performance loss, but it’s not necessary to use it anymore. There is little to no performance loss with ENB by itself, so feel free to use that.What You Need NaturalVision Remastered – DOWNLOAD OpenIV – DOWNLOAD VisualV (Optional) – DOWNLOAD

Content Creator Tips

If you plan on streaming or making a cool YouTube video with NVR, then I recommend you use the ENB add-on for enhanced vehicle reflections and improved street lamp lighting at night time. Do not use your own custom ReShade preset if you’re making a comparison video. Use the ReShade that comes with NVR or don’t use any ReShade at all. I also recommend using Simple Trainer to change the weathers instead of using a different trainer. Otherwise, the clouds will not properly spawn. When you change the weather too fast, it can mess with natural cloud transitions. You must wait for new clouds to spawn. To speed things up, you must select the same weather two or three times in the trainer until it starts to form clouds. Please take a moment to explore the various times and weathers. Use the “real-time duration” option from Simple Trainer. I guarantee you will discover something beautiful each time you play. Lastly, I would appreciate if you can put a download link to the mod in the video description and/or credit my YouTube channel.

Display Brightness Tips

It is very important for you to set the correct brightness level. Otherwise you won’t see certain details properly. Try to keep your GTAV display brightness at 50% for the best possible experience. You can copy my settings below. Keep in mind they’re based on my own monitor’s brightness settings. To get the best possible results, I suggest reading this guide and calibrating your monitor’s display settings. Alternatively, you can take all the tests on the top of this page and calibrate your monitor as you go along. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand The Rockstar logo MUST be visible. Try to match the colors, contrast and gamma of your game with the picture below. No ReShade! Weather: ExtraSunny Time: 19:00 (Exact) Location: Del Perro Pier NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand If the colors, contrast and gamma do not match, then please adjust your display settings.

Timecycle Script

The “timecyclemods.asi” script that you installed in Step 5 is part of the main files and will improve the lighting and tonemapping in select weathers. There is no performance loss with this script. Take a look at the comparison below in Overcast weather. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand Click here if you are a developer looking to modify the above script

Optional Add-Ons

There are several add-ons within the NaturalVision Remastered folder. Here is a brief overview of what each add-on does.Read more: Zomboid how to burn corpses ENB Only The ENB config in NaturalVision Remastered improves vehicle reflections, fixes a bug with car deformation damage and reduces street light intensity during the night. Currently there is no way of changing the street light intensity through the timecycle or visualsettings, so ENB must be used to achieve this. There are two versions of ENB included in this package. The “Normal Preset” version will not have an impact on performance, but is missing Skylighting and SSAO/SSIL effects which are otherwise included in the “Ultra Preset” version. To use ENB on its own, copy and paste all the files and folders from the “ENB Only” directory to your main GTAV game directory. ENB requires the DLL files below in order to work properly. Make sure you download them. Required ENB DLL Files Normal Preset – DOWNLOAD LINK Ultra Preset – DOWNLOAD LINK Place these files inside your main GTAV directory. Overwrite any old file(s) containing the same name. You can open the ENB menu by pressing “Left Shift + Enter” at the same time while in-game. You can take screenshots with ENB by using the “Print Screen” button. They will save in your GTAV game folder. For more information on ENB, please visit this link. ReShade and ENB The ReShade preset applies subtle effects such as Sharpening, SMAA, Deband etc.. There are two versions of ReShade / ENB included in this package. The “Normal Preset” version will not have an impact on performance, but is missing Skylighting and SSAO/SSIL effects which are otherwise included in the “Ultra Preset” version. To use both ReShade and ENB together, copy and paste all the files and folders from the “ReShade and ENB” directory to your main GTAV game directory. ReShade and ENB require the DLL files below in order to work properly. Make sure you download them. Required ReShade and ENB DLL Files Normal Preset – DOWNLOAD LINK Ultra Preset – DOWNLOAD LINK Place these files inside your main GTAV directory. Overwrite any old file(s) containing the same name.

Only works in third-person mode. Fully compatible with the timecycle lighting script. Looks similar to the “advancedblur” script that VisualV provides. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand First-Person Depth of Field This add-on will enable a cinematic depth of field effect when you switch the camera to first-person mode. Lightning strikes will become blurred in first-person when using this add-on. Comes with two different versions: FAR and NEAR FAR will place the depth of field effect away from the player and into the distance. NEAR will place the depth of field effect closer to the player. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand First-Person Lens Flare This add-on will enable the lens flare effect while in first-person camera mode. Disable Third-Person Lens Flare This add-on will remove the lens flare effect while in third-person camera mode. Alternate Lens Flare Style This add-on will change the lens flare effect to a different style that was inspired by modern racing games. Different Rain Puddles This add-on will increase or decrease the amount of puddles that spawn during Rainy and Thunder weather. You can pick from up to three different options of your choice. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand Brighter Emergency Lights (LSPDFR) This add-on will increase the intensity of all emergency lights for LSPDFR players. It will also decrease the excessive glow on taxi adverts and bus/metro LED signs for a more enjoyable experience. By installing this add-on, you may or may not experience brighter dashboard lighting on certain vehicles. Precise Thunder Bolts This add-on will modify the thunder bolt so it looks best on your screen. The thunder bolt in GTAV will look different depending on your in-game resolution. To get the most out of NVR, you should install the thunder bolt that best suits your resolution. You can choose between 720p, 1080p, 1440p, 4k or 5k resolution. Please remember to install the correct file. It must match your in-game resolution. Hide Weapon Reticle and Damage Overlay This add-on will remove the weapon reticle and damage indicator overlay from the in-game HUD menu. It will not remove the Sniper or Homing Launcher reticles. Works in third-person and first-person mode. Corona Modifier This add-on comes with two different settings that let you take control of the corona / flare. The first one is called “Remove Vehicle Coronas” and it removes every single vehicle corona but does not remove the corona from lamps and other light objects. The second one is called “Remove ALL Coronas” and it will remove every single corona within the game. Trash Modifier This add-on comes with three different settings that let you modify the amount of trash on streets and sidewalks. You can either use the default trash settings, increase the amount of trash or remove all trash from spawning. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand Brighter Nights This add-on will make it easier for you to see at night by making the sky and environment brighter. It is only recommended for users who do not have their monitor properly calibrated. Disable Wet Roads Effect This add-on will prevent the roads from appearing wet during sunny weathers. It will also remove wet sound effects. This add-on is not recommended unless you have an issue with sound or animations. Mercedes-Benz 300 SL This add-on will install the exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL created by vans123 for Razed. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand FiveM NVR Pack This add-on will let you use NVR on FiveM without any hassle. First, open the “Main Package” folder and copy the “addons” folder from inside. Next, go to your “FiveM Application Data” folder. Paste the “addons” folder you copied from earlier. Replace all files. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand Done! Now you can play FiveM with the NVR mod. Note: If you want to install something from the “Optional Add-Ons” folder then just copy and paste the .rpf file(s) to the “addons” folder within the “FiveM Application Data” folder. You can install any .ASI script into the “plugins” folder inside the “FiveM Application Data” folder. Unfortunately, FiveM has a few issues with NVR, so let’s go over them. 1. Only some of the NVR carcols modifications work with FiveM. 2. None of the NVR vegetation / world textures work with FiveM. 3. None of the NVR vehicle emissive textures work with FiveM. 4. The ‘timecyclemods.asi‘ script does not work with FiveM. Additionally, ReShade and ENB do not work together. You can only use one or the other. 5. Some of the interiors are too bright at night time. This is a result of me specifically tweaking the topqa.info tonemapping to be different in FiveM, in order to compensate for the ‘timecyclemods.asi’ script not working. Keep in mind that NVR was created for the Los Santos and Blaine County areas. Please ignore any issues you notice on a custom FiveM map. NaturalVision Uninstaller This add-on will let you uninstall the NVR mod.

Trainer Tips

In order to have the best possible experience, I recommend downloading Simple Trainer. Do not use any other trainer to change weathers with this mod. Otherwise the clouds may not spawn and you will not get the full experience. I recommend using the “real-time duration” option from Simple Trainer in order to make sure you don’t miss any of the cool sunrise and sunsets. Note: ScriptHookV and ScriptHookVDotNet are required for trainers to work! NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand I don’t recommend using the “Clouds Menu” in any trainer that will force clouds. All of the weathers in NVR were designed to use a specific style of clouds. Forcing a different set of clouds can cause visual bugs and break the natural cloud formation.

Enabling Volumetric Street Lights

Warning: This effect may cause a slight performance drop! In some of the weathers, the night time street lamps include a volumetric lighting effect that enhances the overall atmosphere. NaturalVision Remastered - Install GuideClick Image To Expand To enable these lights in your game, first browse to the GTAV ‘Documents‘ folder on your computer Default path: C:UsersPCDocumentsRockstar GamesGTA V Next, open up ‘settings.xml‘ with Notepad Look for the line that says “Lighting_FogVolumes value=”false” />” Change it from “false” to “true” and save the file Next time you start up GTAV, the volumetric lighting effect will be enabled

Adjusting Corona / Flare Size

For advanced users! Light corona’s look different depending on your in-game resolution. The default NVR corona size is adjusted to suit 1080p and 1440p resolutions. If you want to adjust the corona size and make it scale perfectly with a higher resolution, then read below. Using OpenIV, browse to “mods/update/update.rpf/common/data/” and extract “visualsettings.dat” to your desktop Using Notepad++ or another text editor, open the topqa.info file and scroll down to line 835 If your in-game resolution is 4k, then change “misc.coronas.sizeScaleGlobal” from ‘1.20‘ to ‘1.46‘ If your in-game resolution is 5k, then change “misc.coronas.sizeScaleGlobal” from ‘1.20‘ to ‘1.66‘ Save the file and drag it back into “mods/update/update.rpf/common/data/” The changes will take effect next time you start your game
