This is another grab from a post I made in another thread regarding Game Lighting in ts4...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Regarding game lighting...

Here are the links for Zerbu's lighting mods (in game pictures are on these pages so you can see the differences)

NoBlu   Here

and

NoGlo   Here

They were under a different name, so they can be difficult to find :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, I made a few changes directly in my Nvidia settings which gave me some differences in my game.

Here are screenshots of my card type and the specific application settings I changed for ts4. I did not change a whole lot, as I was not completely certain how the changes would affect my game. I had read several articles about it and changed items that would give me better graphics...

...the repeating pictures of #3 are in the order items appear via the scroll bar :D



My Nvidia Card:





NOTE:  Many Nvidia cards have this ability - you can check to see if you have a similar Nvidia Experience by entering Nvidia in your Start Bar and clicking on Nvidia Control Panel :D

NOTE: This means your Nvidia control panel may not look exactly like my pictures, but it will look similar :D



Overview Picture of Nvidia Control Panel --- notice I am on the Program Settings tab and not the Global Settings tab :D






Closeups of the Settings in Box #3












Each setting is either available or not (shaded gray if not available for the application - ts4, in this case) and there is an explanation of what it does on the bottom.

REMINDER: This is my card - with the Nvidia Experience. Yours may be different; however, if it is Nvidia, it should be similar  summerB7



If you don't like the lighting in your game, I would suggest getting the Zerbu lighting mods. Those will absolutely make a difference in how you see your game and how your pictures come out.

Remember, I do absolutely zero editing of any of my pictures. My pictures are totally in game and due only to Zerbu's mods and my graphics card.

The only thing I've ever done to them was to turn the DOTY Titanic round pictures Black & White and I used PowerPoint for that - literally a point and click, lol... the app did all the work. It took all of 1 second for each picture! I adjusted nothing :D   I also used PowerPoint to add frames and backgrounds to the sofa pictures... but I didn't do any post-processing of those pictures, either. <3



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3

Suzanne - This is soooo awesome that you posted this for people to improve their lighting!

I, for one, can 100% attest to the fact that doing the tweaking to your Nvidia graphics card WILL indeed make a difference!

I'm not sure if anybody else has really noticed in the game before, but textures that you are not looking straight at, or down at such as the sides of brick walls, fireplaces, carpeting, and especially wood table tops would look very blurry and smeary. Yuck!

After I made these small adjustments to my video card, my textures look amazing in game now! No more blur! It's fantastic!!!!!!!!!

Suzanne helped me made the adjustments a few weeks ago and just WOW WOW WOW!!! Even the grass looks better!!
