Fog

Personally I am not a big fan of the fog level in the game, however it is pretty easy to change.
In the media folder->Classes->daytimes there are settings for multiple times of days and one of the options inside the XML is Fog Density.
Here you can see density of "0.010", "0 .005" and "0.000"

Moderators:
I know this is a fairly mod friendly game, however if discussing modifications to the games internal files aside from trucks/maps on the official forum is not ok, feel free to delete.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try. I'm not sure if it's the fog or not, but the colors are way too unsaturated for my taste. Feels like I'm driving in a post-apocalyptic environment. A step back IMHO. Hopefully reducing the fog returns some color to this amazing game.

I find maxing out the contrast and playing with brightness helps bring some vividness to the game also

You can use Sweetfx for a color/contrast boost.

True it does make a difference, just not enough sadly.

That second image looks exactly what I want, thanks for the tip I'll give it a try.
Edit: BTW, is that with fog removed or no?

I think is without fog , but it looks decent with fog also.

From what I can tell day1,2 and 3 are 3 different days so editing these files with different densities can give different amounts of fog on different days.

Not 100% sure, still tweaking options.

That could be. I was assuming it was 3 times during the day. Seeing as the other options are day to night/night to day etc.

when i install sweet fx always get errors on dx when running game ?

@shuffy

SweetFX

Move the contents of the archive to the root folder of the game.
Turn it on/off by pressing Scroll Lock.

If I decrease the fog will I be able top play multiplayer ?

@Stellyan will your SweetFX link work in MP aswell ?
