    Thanks for responding shwan and I agree that the pitches are not accurate for all lighting conditions,regardless of what textures are used. I use the superb Flut skins also ! Good luck with finding the right compromise but then FM19 is just around the corner so things might change again !

    @Leopoldobb
    as explained earlier I matched color tones with real pictures during sunny matchday
    FM tend to make the shadow area way darker and you will notice at evening matches color is too dark
    but let me check again and be back

    I also feel too bright, still use the flute turf texture
    Can you share your turf [email protected]
  • Bartdude's avatar
    Yes a little too bright. I use the darker Flut textures,included as an additional mod with his latest skins and have used the "grass_patterned_[ao].dds" and grass_patterned_[ro].dds" files from this mod to enhance the pitch textures. It works really well !
