So here is what I did to get to where I am today using the 3dMiGoto mod.
To start off I have the HTC Vive Pro my settings will be different but the process should be the same.
I first got my Box settings to where I could maintain a high frame rate it dips into the 50's at times online but for the most part its in the 80's.
2nd this was important to me because the Vive Pro has a slightly higher resolution and I'm using a 1080Ti. I could get a good picture and decent frame rates. However I couldn't spot contacts. I actually had to roll back my resolution back a bit to get them to render. What I did was set up a quick mission head to head 7000m apart. Once I was rolled back far enough to spot the contacts from 7000m, I called it good. Everything still looks good at this setting so that is taken care of.
Next was the color settings. Which was a combination of QMB and online flying.
Lip, here are my settings. Still a WIP.
Key = ALT no_shift no_ctrl u
type = cycle
; modify the last value with what you want to use for color increase (should be the same as default)
z6 = 0.1, -0.05, 0.0
w6 = 1.0, 1.0, 1.0
x1 = 0.7, 0.2, 0.5
As you can see I have 3 settings.
Z6 is basically your gamma. Anything higher than .1 is too washed out. Anything below .05 is too dark. Even for a bright winter map.
X1 is Color saturation.
For my brighter setting I have the color set to 0.7 too add color while keeping it bright.
I dropped the color on my darker setting to 0.2.
The 3rd is the in between setting.
