Frequently Asked Questions

No, this type mods are not allowed in the multiplayer mod.

I can not say anything definite about it. Some users say that the mod raises fps, but for me there’s no change in FPS.

There may be more than one reason for this. Known reasons:

  1. This is normal if you’re running the game with OpenGL. You need to download Black Sky Fix Add-on to fix this issue.
  2. For add-on users: You may be using outdated versions of the add-ons. If you download an update of RGM, you need to check if there is a new version available for the plugins you use. View add-ons for RGM
  3. Other mods you use may be causing this problem. Disable all your other mods and try this mod again.

There may be more than one reason for this. Known reasons:

  1. Using other graphics mods that includes climate and skybox files together with this mod.
  2. Using map mods that are not compatible with this mod.
  3. Using HDR or No-Bloom mods with this mod. Such mods can be considered as graphics mods because they contain climate files. If you want to remove bloom, click to go our simple guide.

Unfortunately I don’t know, I haven’t test the mod with VR.

Graphics mods aren’t compatible with each other, they cannot work together. Because they all contain the same files, but the contents of the files are different.

Hello! Got some sort of ETA on the 1.40-compatible version or it’s still too early to call?
(I know how the revamping of some core APIs by SCS brought extra work for the mod developers, so take your time!)
