About this mod

A ReShade preset that tries to achieve a more oppressive and grimier atmosphere,
in addition to highlight more the details in the environment and characters.

Permissions and credits
Monsters, poverty, plagues, a bloody racist war between Scoia'taels and humans,
political conspiracies, corruption, drugs, drunks, death around every corner...
The Witcher's world is grim and this ReShade preset tries to give the game a
visual setting more in line with the envoriment that surrounds this fantastic dark medieval fantasy story
(in addition to highlight and enhance the details in the environment and characters).

  - Download and install ReShade.
  - In the installer, select: "SweetFX", "qUINT", "Color Effects", "Depth3D", "OTISFX" and "Shaders by brusell".
  - Place the preset inside the "System" folder of the game.

There are many more mods that can help you get a more grimier setting,
but I think it depends on personal preference.
These mods are the basics, the essentials.
If you would like to know what mods I use with this ambience or, simply,
you are looking for interesting mods, I invite you to visit my uploaded screenshots at my profile (The Witcher section).
There I upload interesting screenshots and try to publicize other mods.

If I decide to update/change/improve this preset,
I will upload it here again.

If you want the same atmosphere for The Witcher II: Assassins Of Kings,
check this out: Grimier Ambience.

If you want the same atmosphere for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt,
check this out: Killing Monsters Ambience.

This is from the community for the community,
anyone can do whatever they want with these files.

Good luck on The Path.
