Elukka, if you replace the flora and flora_hi tmls with the orignals, you'll get the original vegetation colours. Then, replace the entire terrain folder with the original. Again, that will reset it back to the normal colours. But you'll still have the fancy lighting.

The lighting is the best part,in my opinion. But I don't get why he calls it dark. I guess it's our way of perception.

When I first saw it I thought it was dark, but then I discovered....the brightness setting!

Anyway, that doesn't really help. The problem is with the textures themselves. Brightness, contrast and gamma settings only do so much. It still looks like zombieland, except with more light. But still nothing like real life.


Exactly! that what annoys me so much!

If it does, then i don't see what you're complaining about, as that's how i view the game, and i don't see any problem with it.

If it's darker than those screenshots, then you've got your brightness/contrast/gamma values all wrong. Just increasing the brightness won't help. You need to mess with all the values until it looks okay to you.


ERC how'd you get it to be like that?
