ULYSSES ReShade Series is a mod for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, created by Delicious Vegetable.
Description (in author’s own words):
Mod oferuje kolekcję specjalnych konfiguracji zestawu Reshade, ulepszających oprawę graficzną gry. Robią to p A series of ReShade presets featuring a variety of styles based on mid 20th century photographic effects- old National Geographics, print advertisements from the 60's, David Attenborough nature documentaries, that sort of thing.
The Odyssey modding scene continues to develop, mostly in the direction of oddly-shaped naked bodies and inexplicable retextures. Innovation in ReShade application remains, even after all this time, pretty minimal. There are some fine and lovely "cinematic", "realistic" and "performance" setups out there. If you like the look of the original game and just want more of the same but with slightly crisper rendering by all means check 'em out. I'm more interested in pushing the edges of what the game-world can look like, creating wilder, more unusual, more evocative images. I was particularly impressed with the set of LUTs Oh Deer? created for his Fallout 76 Memories? ReShade, and asked if I could use them in other games?.
For ULYSSES I started with the LUTs, then tweaked the contrast, depth-of-field and color grading further, eventually layering on a bit of lens scratch, grain, and other analog film and print simulators. The aesthetic that inspired me was the sort of mid-20th century photograph you see in old copies of National Geographic or Time. The ones with the thick, slightly matte pages and the hyper-saturated images. These were not designed to imitate any particular camera, film stock, or print material, more to evoke the feel of that era of mass media photography.
Effort was made to minimize the performance drain of these ReShade presets. Effects like borders, DoF, and lens scratches have been hotkeyed for ease of use.
As this is very much a successor to my earlier work with OMEROS?, I decided to call this one ULYSSES after James Joyce's ?modernist 1922 remake of Homer's classic best-teller.
Each preset is named after a character in the novel. English lit nerds may derive some amusement from the ways each style reflects the nature of its eponymous character. Yes, yes, yes.
1. Install the latest edition of ReShade from its home website. Follow all instructions contained therein. Install all of the optional shaders.
2. Download the ULYSSES pack
3. Unzip the styles you like directly into your Odyssey folder (where the game's .exe lives). I suggest using all of them.
4. In the game, press the HOME key (if that doesn't work, try shift+F4) to open up the ReShade GUI
5. Load up the style you'd like to see (it's the drop-down selector at the very top)
6. Tinker to suit
All ReShades are made to be tweaked- that's why there's an in-game GUI. Some effects (borders, depth-of-field, vignette shading, etc.) look fantastic in certain circumstances, but awful in others. Some effects look neat, but levy a heavy FPS tax. So, if you don't like them or don't want to deal with the FPS hit, just turn them off! To help you out, many optional effects like borders, DoF, and lens scratches have been hotkeyed so you can flip them on for Photo Mode and off for regular adventuring. To learn more, open up the ReShade GUI and have a look around.
So long as the color grading controls (things like HSL, DPX, Technicolor, LUTS, and so on) are left as they are, the image will look more or less as intended. But really, do tinker with things; everyone's rig has different needs.
