Las Vegas city [PBR]

Using the attached configuration files, you may enable the option to have PBR realistic glass all over the strip. The necessary files are already installed so you won't need anything else to activate that option.

PBR Pros: Realistic glass appearance and accurate reflections

PBR Cons: By switching to the PBR version of the City, you will lose the night-time reflections on the glass which are very prominent in Vegas strip.

Extract the two folders (scripts and images) and drop both into 'P3D\FlyTampa' and replace all. When you run the configurator, you will see an additional set of options at the bottom of the Las Vegas city tab

thanks for the update :) but I have trouble understanding what you mean? When applying these patch do I don't have ANY night-time reflections at all or just in Time Preview mode? Sorry for asking

You have a point there, i was a bit confusing. I was just mentioning again that the night-time reflection will not show up if you use the Time Preview mode.

The patch itself won't change anything though. It will simply give you the additional option to select a full PBR version of Las Vegas strip, if you like it better. If you do select that option however, you will lose the night-time reflections because PBR materials do not support it.

hope this makes sense :)

you have mentioned pros and cons, but you forgot to mention FPS. Does it hit much?
