                                                              IMPORTANT: THIS IS A WIP IT'S AT 80% COMPLETE, EXPECT MINOR BUGS!

HI!

This mod aims to improve the graphics and realism on Prey:

  • All the lights cast shadows (incl flash light)
  • Corrected shadows for the original light sources 
  • Ultra view distance for everything (incl space station!)
  • Improved particles 
  • Improved AO+IL (Via Engine and Reshade)
  • Darker Atmosphere avoiding crushed blacks (Via Engine and Reshade)  
  • No more pop-in! (texture, shadows, objects, particles) 
  • Improved reflections 
  • All decals (blood, gloo, bullet holes, broken papers, broken glasses, etc) stay almost forever (only disappears when you leave the level)

0.8b: Fix Shadows flickering in some areas, stabilized fps in large areas.

0.8:
  • Breakable lights!: now lights also reacts to impacts such as bullets and collisions                                                                                           (in the coming updates I'll be adding more destructions efects) 
  • Light fixtures can be carried
  • Added slight DOF only for up closes (1-2 fps cost), can be deactivated pressing "numpad -"
  • Reshade AO+IL finetuned and improved (now cost fewer fps and is equally effective)
  • Added physics ability to Industrial lathe, drill press, crafting plans, Transtar hanging wall logo, workbench vice, board eraser, cigarettes, kitchen knife, lockers.
  • Amplified shadows view distance to avoid shadows pop-in on large rooms without fps cost.
  • More shattered parts when breaking goo
  • Fixed some burn decals disappearing before time
  • Added an extra file for those that have issues whit Reshade on game startup, this is to avoid further search and downloading files cause is a known compatibility problem on some setups. (see installation notes)

0.7
:
  • Increased view distance for environment decals
  • Ad collision for various types of particles
  • Increase collision for particles that already have
  • Increased particles view distance
  • Fix paper pieces decals disappearing before time
  • Deactivated fake lights in some areas
  • Burns decals for explosions and voltaic strikes on floor stay almost forever
  • Added shadows (cast and receive) for gloo shattered parts and augmented screen lifetime
  • Added physics (movement and carrying ability) to apartment nightstand, locker drawer, and fertilizer dispenser
  • Optional file without Reshade that maintains  vanilla environment "feel", and fps gain (No added AO+IL)

0.6b: Fixes some decals disappearing before time, added an optional file for vanilla flashlight.

And much more to come!

Installation:

ALWAYS REPLACE ALL THE FILES IF YOU ARE INSTALLING AN UPDATE


MAIN VERSION
  1. Extract the zip file, inside there are 5 folders each one has a name that explains where to put the files for the correct functionality of the mod.
  2. Open dxgi.ini (\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\) with notepad and change: TextureSearchPaths, EffectSearchPaths, PresetFiles and ScreenshotPath as noted inside the file (so Reshade can find the files on your pc)
  3. Open game.cfg  (%yourusername%\Saved Games\Arkane Studios\Prey) with notepad and set your preferred resolution, make sure to set as read only after.
  4. Start the game and set the brightness to -5 (Don't worry, otherwise you'll get overexposed whites)
  5. Enjoy!


***********IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE GAME CRASHING ON STARTUP USE THE ALTERNATIVE DXGI.DLL THAT COMES IN A SEPARATE FOLDER***************


NO RESHADE VERSION
   1.  Extract the zip file, inside there are 4 folders each one has a name that explains where to put the files for the correct functionality of the mod.
   2.  Open game.cfg  (%yourusername%\Saved Games\Arkane Studios\Prey) with notepad and set your preferred resolution, make sure to set as read only             after.
   3.  Enjoy!


Notes:

Warning! can be very taxing on some setups! On a gtx 1060 6gb, i5 3570k, 16gb ram and ssd , 1080p VSYNC ON I get 60fps with dips to 54 on space and Arboretum w/many Thypons around, you can gain fps disabling Resahde's AO+IL hitting "numpad +"

If you find a bug (In most cases are related to shadows due restrictions on the engine) please tell me the type of light and object implicated being the most explicit possible cause the game has 273 type of lights and some times it's hard to find the right one to tweak.

Know bugs:

In the first mission, the sun looks oversaturated
