Re-shade 2.0 Clearer more Colorful Days and Much Darker Nights

For anyone interested applying re-shade 2.0 will give more of a clearer, vivid, and colorful day and much darker nights. In fact dark rides are now near pitch black. See video here as example using the below profile: https://forums.planetcoaster.com/showthread.php/17706-Pitch-Black-Dark-Ride-Ghost-Train-how-a-dark-ride-should-be

I've noticed no FPS drop with the below setup.

To install
1) Download re-shad 2.0 (don't get 3.0.5 version) https://reshade.me/sweetfx#download
2) Unpack install do whatever is needed
3) Run ReShade Setup
4) Click on the Select Game button and point it to your planetcoaster.exe file in your install directory
5) It should automatically Direct 3d 10/11 but if it does not choose this one in the radio buttons
6) Using the stock profile will produce a clearer more colorful picture but if you want darker nights for dark rides use this profile below.
7) Open your planet coaster direct and open the SweetFX folder. In this folder you will see a SweetFX_Settings text document, make a backup of this file if you want, then delete everything out of it and paste in these settings and save.
8) Launch Planet Coaster once in game use the scroll lock key to turn on and off the settings to see the difference.

I don't particularly need brighter days but I would like to get rid of the blue moon glow which completely overpowers the electric lights
 
Could you provide a video of the outside of the park? So we can see the actua difference in the real game, and not only inside a darkride? Im pretty interested :)
 
I was waiting for reshades for this game!

I love bumping up the vibrancy and saturation in games like this even if other people always say it's too much. I want hte game to look more like the renders! The renders are much more saturated!

Yes sure, here are some screens, notice how the colors pop more and the picture is more clear - this profile also has a bloom enabled which makes the bloom much more realistic as well.

I don't understand step 6. I got it to put the d3d9.dll or whatever in the Planet Coaster folder, but what do you do from there? There's no sweet_FX folder so I must have missed something. I've never seen this installer thing before.

First my apologies. The Reshade site is https://reshade.me/ , but they recently released 3.0.5 and I could no longer find 2.0 which I already had installed. 3.0.5 does not seem to work well with PC so that's why I put the settings file up top for 2.0.3.

I search for reshade download 2.0 and came across this site https://reshade.me/forum/general-discussion/2093-can-t-download-reshade-2-0 , where they provided that link above in the first post. My setup went nothing like what you described above so I just downloaded that file and it's not the right thing. Trying to find the right files now since I should have checked before posting.

OK I found the proper link try this one : https://reshade.me/sweetfx#download , there's a download button down a little but I just confirmed this is the correct download. File name should be Resahde 2.0.3 with SweetFX 2.0.07z . Unzip with winzip or 7zip, then just rus the reshade setup.exe, (step 3 above). Again I apologize for that , I don't think I can edit the original post as there appears to be no edit button so will contact a mod to see if they will edit the download link for me.

The correct download link is https://reshade.me/sweetfx#download

THAT works. ;)

Does this disable the steam overay/functionality for some reason? I can't take screenshots anymore.

The contrast is a bit much on the UI...the different colors on the list ont he right are completely missing. In a scenario, the 3 blank spots where the stars go are also completely invisible.

If you made this preset yourself, could you make one where it's just more vibrant, but not so much more contrast? Now that I've seen it like this, I don't want to go back, but the UI looks worse and the peeps all look orange. :x

Great glad its working, yes some of the sliders and stuff in the UI kind of get bleached out a bit but I liked the bloom effect in game so the trad off was worth it for me. If you want to modify that file here's what you can do to make it like you suggested. Just open the sweetfx_settings file that you modified originally (with planet coaster off). Under choose effect turn off by changing the 1 to a 0 the following items until you get the effect you want, save the file then restart planet coaster.

1) #define USE_BLOOM
2) #define USE_HDR
3) #define USE_TECHNICOLOR 1
4) #define USE_TECHNICOLOR2
5) Maybe #define USE_LEVELS


* Vibrance and Lumasharpen are the two that will really sharpen the picture and bring out the colors. The use_levels is what's making the blacker parts of the screen truly black at night. Feel free to tweak away if share any preset you guys come up with, mine is certainly not the best there will ever be but it's a start.


I know what you mean about not wanting to go back, you can press the scroll lock key to turn it on and off and it's simply not the same game after seeing it like this :) By the way your screenshots are awesome! I especially like how the contrast between the sun and shade now shows up much better with this turned on, in that second example you can really see it in the corner of the pond/pool.

Is there a picture tutorial of how to make darker rides. Confusing me Thx
I'm not aware of a way to make the dark rides darker without using this shader and the instructions at the top. Just make sure if you try us the correct download link from post #9 above instead of the original post. I tried to edit but don't have an edit option , asked someone the technical support forums to help out.

ok two more because it's simply amazing


 
Looks good, I'm sure everyone will have their own preference and hopefully everyone can figure out how from this thread if they want to try this. Have you noticed any drop in FPS? I did not.
 
No, although I did notice the file says HDR has a high performance impact.

The HDR is annoying IMO though so it's better without it anyway.
 
Probably not, I'm not concerned about that so I didn't check it at all. I am only interested in making the game look less like it's an overcast day! [yesnod]
