NaturalVision Remastered (NVR) is a complete overhaul of the original mod. Numerous changes were made to the environmental weathers, lighting system, ambient colors and tonemapping in order to blur the line between fantasy and reality.

The goal was to try and make GTAV look visually similar to Southern California in real life. The author has viewed more than 40 hours of video footage, hundreds of photos and researched a variety of neighboring districts within the Los Angeles and Salton Sea areas. All of this was necessary in order to produce the most realistic visual experience currently possible with GTAV's game engine.

Fun Fact: Over 1200 hours were spent working on the Remastered update over the course of six months. Since releasing this update, more than 3000 hours have been spent in total.

The aesthetic behind NaturalVision Remastered was inspired by Forza Horizon 3, Watch_Dogs, GTAIV and a variety of other games. Numerous ambient details were taken from those titles and reproduced in GTAV's various weathers.

Unlike any of the previous versions, NaturalVision Remastered does not rely on ReShade for its looks. This allows for players to enjoy a massive boost in performance.

There are many optional add-ons included with this mod, ranging from a texture color overhaul pack to LSPDFR related lighting tweaks.

It also includes an optional ENB and ReShade package, which outputs minimal effects such as sharpening and ambient occlusion.

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.

The README is currently available in the following languages:
English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Russian, Korean and Portuguese

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 troubleshoot your issues and also answer your questions.

IMPORTANT You must put your GTAV display brightness at 50% for the best possible experience.
With NaturalVision Remastered, your in-game performance will be about the same as vanilla.

The only thing that matters is how you currently run GTAV without mods and the FPS you receive on average.

If you plan on using ReShade then you may experience performance loss, but it's not necessary to use it anymore.

There is little to no performance loss with ENB by itself, so feel free to use that.
