Optional HD Cubemap for Need for Speed Carbon
Download



Note: Check the INI file for all available features! These are just general features.
  • HDReflections : Resolution will be increased based on desktop resolution.
  • CubemapRes : Controls the resolution of vehicle cubemaps used in the front-end.
  • OldGPUCompatibility: Vehicle reflections will be rounded to the nearest power of two.
  • Scale : Controls the resolution multiplier of reflections.
  • ImproveReflectionLOD : Increases the level of detail used in reflections.
  • ExtendRenderDistance : Increases the render distance of vehicle reflections.
  • RealFrontEndReflections : Enables real-time vehicle reflections in the front end.
  • RealisticChrome : Makes the chrome materiel more reflective.
  • VehicleReflectionBrightness : Controls the intensity of vehicle reflections.



Q: Is this compatible with other mods?
A: I can't make any guarantees. It's been tested with Widescreen Fix, Extra Options, Unlimiter, and HUD Resizer. All texture mods and car mods should work.

Q: What are the system requirements?
A: It's difficult to say because it depends on your resolution, settings, and other enhancements being used. For 1080p, an NVIDIA GTX 1060 / AMD RX 480 should be more than enough for default settings.

Q: Why is a No-CD fix required?
A: Need for Speed games have protections (DRM) that make it difficult to view and modify their code, so No-CD patches are often recommended when using ASI scripts. In addition, the memory addresses in my scripts are all harcoded, so it's not something I can easily change. If you're concerned about security, ask the community on the NFSMods Discord to help you acquire these patches from a trusted source.

Q: Why is the latest version of the Widescreen Fix recommended?
A: Most of the features I make are often designed to work with the Widescreen Fix, as I'm heavily involved in the development of both mods. Carbon's "XB360Reflections" and "LightingFix" features are a good example of this. The Widescreen Fix is also a good foundation that everyone should use, since it corrects visual and technical errors the PC ports have.

Q: Why don't I have water reflections like your screenshot of Need for Speed Most Wanted?
A: Install Xbox 360 Stuff Pack V2 by osdever & elaymm4. My screenshot simply demonstrates the improvement in resolution.

Q: What happened to the old mod pages?
A: They've been deleted. I've decided to consolidate everything into a single package; this applies to the download page and source code. It's easier to manage and more convenient for everyone.

Q: Can I bundle this with my own mod?
A: If your mod is free and you credit me, yes.

so uh, the objects disappear in the rear view but they still show the shadows, and particles wont appear either, any plans for a fix?

could you please update this for NFSPS after merging "works with all 1.1 releases" thing? Thanks in advance.

Will Undercover ever be supported by this?

Hey! I have the widescreen fix already installed, do I put the files inside the scripts folder *with* the widescreen fix?
