 Post Topic: Struggling with TOD's
PostPosted 17.06.2012, 04:46 
So I haven't had a chance to play with CE3 in a long time (school etc...) but I have come back and now whenever I create a level, the lighting looks like utter ****. I believe this to be an effect of the new "filmic tonemapper" or whatever. Even at night, the entire level is totally washed out with white.

I tried turning off the filmic tonemapper, but it looks even worse. Can anyone give me some guidance so I can make something that doesn't look terrible, maybe closer to the old stuff? Specifically, I'm having trouble turning off the visible moon while using a skybox texture (rain). Thanks in advance!

I normally reset the TOD, and just take my time with it, it takes while of messing around to get a good TOD.
