R☆hancer Photorealism Mod


You already got tired of Los Santos after exploring for hours? You think the visuals become more and more boring? The default graphics are not realistic enough to take a shot or make a fabulous video via Rockstar editor? Then this mod is obviously built for you.
The weather has been overhauled completely and been more attractive than ever!
Moreover, raining is the star in this patch as we put our effort to bring you a DriveClub-alike rain weather effect. Car lighting was also fixed to give a clearer view at night in Los Santos.

Fully reworked the weather effect:

-Natural fog
-Reduced Rayleigh scattering aka “blue haze”
-Light pollution fixes
-Dark nights
-Bright natural days
-Enhanced reflections

-Higher shadow cascade

Totally enhanced the rain, included:
-More particles
-Better puddles
-Better drop size
-Better particle shadows

Car lighting reworks:
-Increased light distance
-Brighter & more visible light from head, tail, emergencysiren lights
-Better Emissive lights + DayNight separation tweaks

1. Copy content of "ReShade preset" folder into your Grand Theft Auto 5 folder
This preset was made to enhance visuals of new weathers, fix bugs and give it natural&realistic (in my sole opinion) feel. I do recommend using only this preset. It's all up to you.

Ver 3.0

Complete revision of R*Hancer
Only one weather setup so far.
Reshade preset was reworked for new weathers, and now it's completely optional, you can use just weathers if you want.

Ver 2.0

Added "Dark VanillaShadows" option with unchanged vanilla ambient brightness. If you like deep dark shadows - it's for you.
reworked fog options:
In "low fog" smog weather replaced with weather similar to extra sunny, but with slightly more fog and haze
Thick fog renamed to "Medium fog"
added new "Thick fog + Blue Haze", it has denser fogand blue haze in the distance, that completely hides horizon line

Added completely vanilla weathers with lowered fog, better reflections, better water reflections, better headlights and other improvements for best vanilla experience and compatibility with evey single reshade preset out there ever made for GTAV

Tons of bugfixes for extrasunny, cloudy, and clear. Overall fog enhancements

Added Reshade preset by Dr.Awesome
