Can't see shells (sky contrast)

This happens especially on the Neighbours map and particularly when looking East (although to an extent at all angles). The lack of contrast with the sky and the glare make incoming shells basically invisible. I know different light conditions are realistic and I'm ok with that but in this game some classes rely a lot on dodging and seeing the tracers is an important game mechanic. On this map I've eaten huge damage even when I knew I was being shot at and concentrating on dodging. Is it just me? Any graphics settings I can tweak to improve this?

I occasionally suffer from that as well... Best I can advise is try to turn it to your advantage and fire at targets with the sun in your back, although I realise that is often not an  option :(

I would suggest using a mod that makes shells more visible. 

There a few in Aslain mod pack.

Hi all,

Since there is no way to change it in game GUI I also use the MOD mentioned above:

  • MOD makes clear difference between AP and HE shells (for you, friends and foes)
  • MOD makes shells visible in all weather / time of day conditions

Similar issue - text headers over ships.  Most of the time if the sky is involved, the text of player labels becomes unreadable.  Any mods to change this?

I run into this issue from time to time, but it's still pretty rare.

While I do use a mod to change the look of the shells in-game it doesn't really seem to help much in these cases as the bright sky blows out anything that is also fairly light colored.

Time to get to the dark side then.

 

I was "against" mods at first, but now I cant live without few.

They are purely eye candy ... but if it helps because "reasons" ... why not.

At least it's not just me then :Smile_honoring:

 

It doesn't happen often enough for me to be desperate to mod it out. But it's good to know it's quite consistent because then I can use it against others. If it was something like e.g. those on low graphics settings see fine that would annoy me more.

Neighbours is awful for seeing AP shells fired from (or fired at) the right side of the map. Also the FPS/LAG text is unreadable unless you look at some bright sky, as it's black text (with a slight white Halo) which merges with dark terrain/see making it far to hard to see (I get Lag issues so I'm always looking at it).

yes  its an annoying issue. 

i wish they had a standard option in the menu's for some more visible shells instead of using a mod for it.
