NaturalVision ✪ Photorealistic GTA V 2.2

Watch the NaturalVision 2.0 Video Trailer

High-Resolution Image Gallery


NaturalVision is the result of greatly utilizing ReShade, ENB, VisualSettings and TimeCycle files in combination with the VisualV mod. The goal was to try and make GTA5 look as photorealistic as possible. Over 400 hours of work was put into Version 2.0, which is a complete overhaul of the original mod.

Although this was built on top of VisualV's files, there have been numerous changes made to the environmental weathers, lighting, timecycle and colors in order to improve the aspect of realism. The tonemapping has also been adjusted through VisualSettings and ReShade to try and mimic how we view the real world through our eyes.

Please leave your feedback in the comments section.

This mod requires VisualV in order to properly work.
You can download it at this link.
Install guide is included in the super detailed "README" file within the download.

Currently available in English, Russian and German but additional language support will be added soon.

Please read everything carefully in the readme before commenting about an issue. There is a good amount of useful information in there that should help you troubleshoot your issues and also answer your questions.

In regards to minimum or maximum specs:
The only thing that matters is how you run currently run GTAV without mods and the FPS you're averaging. Take that and subtract the framerate by 5 or 10, depending on which version you decide to use.


- Updated the README with new instructions (Step 4 and Step 5)
- Modified sky / fog colors in ExtraSunny and Clear weather
- Tweaked directional lighting to provide a warmer feel during daytime
- New night time lighting in all weathers
- Fixed Deband ReShade issue causing night time to be pitch black in certain areas
- Adjusted traffic light corona size for more visibility during daytime
- Increased wind in Rain and Thunder weathers
- Adjusted the type of Clouds appearing in-game
- Recreated the Main ReShade Preset from scratch. Balanced and performance friendly.
- Various ENB and visualsettings lighting tweaks

    Hi everyone, there is a big update that I've been slowly working on for the past month. It's called "NaturalVision Remastered" and has a targeted release of late February / early March. All the weathers are modified in it, not just the extrasunny and clear weather. This update was inspired by various games including GTA4, Forza Horizon 3 and Watch_Dogs - taking the most realistic lighting aspects from those games and trying to recreate the look in GTAV's various weathers.

    In v2.2 the sky colors looked very weird and did not fully represent Los Angeles, so I've gone back and recreated most of the sky/fog colors which was a lot of work. I've also increased fog density in certain weathers, adjusted the overall fog, modified clouds, tweaked ambient lighting, added godrays, modified in-game tonemapping and so much more. The ReShade stuff was also modified and there is a major performance boost. Revisiting every major weather has really helped shape this update. Even without ReShade, the mod still holds up on its own this time around and I stand by these words. I look forward to sharing it with everyone when it's ready.

    You can view screenshots for NaturalVision Remastered at the following link:

    All screenshots were taken at 4k resolution and then resized to my monitor's resolution. The gallery will be updated frequently so feel free to follow it. Trust me, you will like this update.

    @lytdyt86 Something else I noticed is 'banding' of the sky colours. When you select say extra sunny for weather the clouds remain in the sky but light intensity increases.

    Anyway you could get rid of the blue haze? What is the difference between your mod and realisticV? Which one is better?

    Hi I don't think I installed this mod correctly. There's still that blue haze everywhere. I put extra sunny weather at 13:30 hours approx and can't see a single cloud in the sky. Please help.

    Hi I don't think I installed this mod correctly. There's still that blue haze everywhere. I put extra sunny weather at 13:30 hours approx and can't see a single cloud in the sky. Please help. Also my frame rate took a big hit. I'm down to a minimum fps of around 15.

    @sidk47 I'm pretty sure there are no clouds in the "extra sunny" weather, there are clouds in the "clear" weather though.

    @PowerStar you're either trolling or just uneducated. Learn English. No one can understand you. And you tag people so many times, just stop. Do all of us a favor and stop.

    @sidk47 @lytdyt86 Did you guys download the latest VisualV 1.0.310 (Step 3 in the guide)? I was using the older 1.0.300 but a newer version was released a week ago for the latest gtav update. 1.0.310 sorted out my issues (blue haze included). Wrt FPS drops make sure vsync is disabled in the ENB menu (shift+enter) and that your fps is not limited to some low value. In the Reshade menu (ScrollLock) make sure you are using the performance preset. Hope this helps.

    @sidk47 @lytdyt86 Oh and follow the rest of the steps in the guide after installing the new VisualV
    @MikePhilips Correct, there are no clouds in extra sunny. Weird thing is I had clouds but the latest VisualV sorted that out.

    @mips I am unable to use visual v 1.0.310 because nveditor2.2 says wrong version of visual v installed.

    @sidk47 I ran the editor when I still had 1.0.300 installed and kept all the files. After installing 1.0.310 I just dragged and dropped the edited files into openiv as per the guide, no need to rerun the editor. So you can do the installation with 1.0.300, run the editor (keep the files) and then do the installation with 1.0.310 so you don't have to run the editor again but just copy your old files in openiv.

    I ran the editor with version 1.0.300 as well buy nveditor2.2 still says wrong version of visual v installed. I think I followed your instructions well and installed successfully but the mod doesn't do much. The blue haze is still there. And my fps took a big hit, especially in places with lots of trees and plants.
