Description

This Addon does not disable HDR but it is reducing the effects of HDR dramatically by adjusting the aperture.

Most server don't allow addons. Integrating this should be simple.
HeinBloed is very open to give people permission to use his work.

As AAS is played in very different scenarios it often happens to have these extreme
HDR annoyances. Would be a huge bonus.

What is so annoying about having the sun in your eyes, I thought the whole point of having the sun in your eyes was that it was supposed to be annoying?

This to me is equivalent to trying to turn the rain off because it is annoying.

HDR is utterly broken. It is GPU and driver dependent.
You may not experience it, yet that does not mean the problem do not exist.

I don´t see this is in anyway AAS-Related and i´m one the hosts who is strictly against those kind of "tweaks" by default. It´s up to BI to fix that and it´s up to the host to allow/disallow such community-fixes/addons already. If someone wants this, he can already do it, right? Otherwise the next thing we talk about is removing grass for performance reasons in AAS which is also very popular.

Have you ever heard of options?

An option to disable grass for the server admin would be of course another good addition.

What setting is default is still update to the mission designer or how the server admin adapts it.

Cant you just turn off postprocessing in your graphics options menu? I thought that turned off HDR entirely?

Can it be run as a client side mod?
