Better BF3 Visual Mod. Better Looking Maps

BetterBF3VisualMod & (60.7 KB)

What is in the downloaded zip:
2 Mods to place in your VU server’s Mod folder. Add their mod names to your server’s Modlist.txt file.

  • BetterBF3VisualMod
  • VEManager
    (VEManger is required in order to load my custom Visual Environment presets.
    I included it with correct settings already applied in VEManager’s config file.
    Without VEManager the visual presets won’t work.)

What is in BetterBF3VisualMod:
Custom Visual Environment presets that I made for all 29 of BF3’s maps.

  • MapVisualPresets.lua file.

Also inside are small extra mod files

  • FlashlightSettings.lua
  • MenuAndOutOfBoundsEffectSettings.lua
  • ReduceBlueHUDSettings.lua
  • RemoveBlueFxFromMaps.lua
  • RemoveFxList.lua

What is VEManager:
VEManger handles the loading, creation, and manipulation of Visual Environments.
All it is intended to do for BetterBF3VisualMod is to load my custom Visual Environments for maps.
My custom VE presets will not work without VEManager.

Important note:
Color Correction must be set to false in your server’s startup file.
If set to true it will apply DICE’s default color grading over top of the custom visual presets.

Small known issues:
Explosions can affect the visual presets incorrectly. Usually it is hardly noticeable depending on the map. You may notice a sudden change when explosions happen.


Love it :wink: Well done!

what is the command line to turn off color correction?

vu.ColorCorrectionEnabled false


Yes you do need to add VEManager in the mod list text file.

Where is the server’s startup file located in the directory?

^^^ Should look like this if you’re trying to run a local server on your PC.

How to run a local server (easy)
^^^ Here’s a link to a forum post with a tutorial on how to run a local server on your PC if that helps.
The files such as the Startup.txt is included in that forum post.

Hi, when I use your BetterBF3Visual Mod, VEManager, etc., I find that recently it doesn’t work with Funbots and it keeps popping out, but I don’t know
