Very dark nights (not a complaint or bug just asking advice)


Recommended Posts

I seem to have black as ink nights but can't work out what to adjust to see (something/anything). The in-game brightness isn't doing anything whether I have it on 50% or 100%, I have had this overly dark night thing for a good while now which to be honest I forgot about because I've been driving summer daytime scenarios, tonight I happened to be driving the RSC class 325 which doesn't appear to have an interior cablight which is what made me wonder what setting I could alter to see a little better.

Could it be a RWE shader setting or an in-game advanced graphics setting or maybe a combination of both?

Any pointers to throw me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

No advice huh?


I'll just stick to daylight then as I get very little free time I don't particularly want to spend that randomly and blindly tweaking values on two or three fronts and running the game and waiting for a scenario to load and then probably making things much worse than I started..


Have a great day all.. 🙂

Ok great thanks, as an aside, I removed reshade completely and it was indeed still the same.

A weird thing I discovered though is if I adjust the brightness setting slider in the in-game options the brightness doesn't change even after pressing save, however if I Alt + Tab to minimise the game and then restore focus to it the change takes effect, don't know if this is due to RWE2 or not?

You mean the Train Simulator brightness setting ? 

Night/day lighting can be different for each route (this is set by the route developer) so some route may be darker than others.

Yes in the TS settings, sorry I should have been clearer. 


Not aware of any scenario editor settings though, other than time/date/season of course.

@Reef Thank you for pointing me out the gamma issue. There is a problem indeed with the gamma correction code that is currently broken. I am currently fixing it and the fix will be available in the next update.

My nights do seem better now since many thanks.
