Sandhya's Sekta Edit

Created by Sandhya
Added May 1, 2014
Shader used: SweetFX 1.5
Preset description:
My personal edit of Sekta's pretty cool ESO preset. This preset reintroduces the color that Sekta's seems to lack a bit, and removes the 'overexposed' feel of the picture, which for me personally was a high strain on the eyes when playing for a longer period of time. In addition, the sharpness was tweaked in order to remove the slight white lining that appeared around edges. Note: Gamma calibration clearly influences the picture: with a neutral (slider halfway the bar) gamma calibration in-game, the picture will be slightly darker than on screenshots, and contrast slightly higher. Enjoy! Comments welcome ofcourse!

/*-----------------------------------------------------------. / Description / '------------------------------------------------------------/ Game: Elder Scrolls Online Author: Sandhya - credit goes to Sekta for the base preset! SweetFX version: 1.5.1 Description: This is a SweetFX preset for Elder Scrolls Online. It attempts to enhance the graphics of the game while retaining the overall look of the vanilla game. It does what most of the other SFX profiles for the game so far also do - which is to reduce the slight green haze present in the vanilla game. At the same time, it increases the contrast slightly, and subtly alters the lighting to create warmth while avoiding an over-saturated scene. It also enhances the detail of the textures in the game, and provides additional (or alternative, if you want to turn off the in-game AA) anti-aliasing. FPS drop should be minimal - I've noticed none at all. This is a perpetual work in progress and will be tweaked and updated as and when I feel the urge. Not all game locations have been checked with the preset active, so there may be some areas where it doesn't look ideal. The preset is, however, relatively subtle, so it shouldn't cause too many problems. /*-----------------------------------------------------------. / Choose effects / '-----------------------------------------------------------*/ // Set to 1 for ON or 0 for OFF #define USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING 1 #define USE_CARTOON 0 #define USE_ADVANCED_CRT 0 #define USE_BLOOM 0 #define USE_HDR 0 #define USE_LUMASHARPEN 1 #define USE_TECHNICOLOR 1 #define USE_DPX 0 #define USE_MONOCHROME 0 #define USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 1 #define USE_TONEMAP 1 #define USE_VIBRANCE 1 #define USE_CURVES 1 #define USE_SEPIA 0 #define USE_VIGNETTE 0 #define USE_DITHER 1 #define USE_BORDER 0 #define USE_SPLITSCREEN 0 /* Cartoon settings */ #define CartoonPower 0.10 // [0.1 to 10.0] Amount of effect you want. #define CartoonEdgeSlope 1.00 // [0.1 to 8.0] Raise this to filter out fainter edges.

Cool edits. You based it off a older setting though. I change mine all the time as I play because I often come across something I don't like. It's a bit more colourful than what it was, at least it's more colourful than vanilla. The main culprit for the overexposed look is tonemap, combined with the negative vibrance and positive saturation to try give it that realistic lighting look. You can untick tonemap to fix that look easily. On my screen I didn't notice haloing but thanks for pointing that out, I reduced my sharpness clamp.
