RXP XP12 Enhancer

Now updated for XP12.09 with Auto-Save settings!

This script is enhancing the X-Plane 12 visual experience and provides a set of options which are carrefuly selected and adjusted for their direct and visible changes. The main goal is to achieve a more realistic rendition inside and out, while at the same time trying to correct some of the most glaring limitations of X-Plane 12 rendering engine. This script is only modifying a few datarefs at runtime in order to improve, among other things, the following: exposure, tone mapping, white balance, sky, atmosphere, volumetric clouds and night lighting. 

The script also handles mettering and auto-exposure in order to try reaching a better balance between brights and darks when in-cockpit, to get closer to the sunny 16 rule when outside, to maintain a consistent level of exposure whether zooming the view, or to maintain a natural change of exposure when looking from darker to brighter places. 

Note: The script requires XP12 v12.06+ and only changes private art datarefs. These datarefs are subject to change between versions and are meant primarily for the sole use of LR. This script might therefore not work entirely as expected with future XP12 versions.


1) Download and install the latest FlyWithLua

2) Copy the lua script to the FlyWithLua scripts folder:



The script offers a settings window which can show up automatically when the script loads, otherwise in using either this menu or command:

    Menu:    FlyWithLua > FlyWithLua Macros > RealityXP X-Plane 12 Enhancer...
    Command: 'RXP/Utility/Enhancer/toggle_window'


This mod also includes a set of XP12 loader background images shot in 4K.

This mod is released under the MIT license.

This addon just blows my mind. Once you try this, you'll never be able to fly without it. Kudos to the author for such brilliant work!

Basically a good tool. Does anyone use XP Enhancer 1.9.3 with traffic global and / or XPlilot ? 

Since I have never had any problems so far, I suspect that XP enhancer 1.9.3 is somehow causing problems for me due to traffic. Doesn't sound logical, but I can't explain it any other way: I have only reinstalled xp enhancer in the last week. My FPS is always 50 (I have even limited it). I don't use addon sceneries, only Autoortho. The following problems are new for me. 

If I have activated global traffic with traffic or Xpilot, XP freezes 12 times, sometimes 20 seconds, sometimes 2 minutes, at the appproach, on the open "road". 

Then, I have deactivated global traffic in the plugins. No problems. Same situation , no traffic global, but with xpilot, again it freezes irregularly. This Maybe 2-3 times in 30 minutes. Traffic global activated, freezes again. I set the traffic to zero, no problems Does anyone know this or is there a solution. I actually only use XP 12 enhancer because of the darker cockpits and especially with ZIBO. Otherwise I used xvision. However, I have deactivated this at first to prevent conflicts here too.

Congratulations for this great tool.

I would have a suggestion if I may :

I find anti aliasing parameter (MSAA+FXAA) very effective.

So, in a future version, could you provide this parameter in the rxp-xp12-enhancer.ini file so that one could initialize it to true once for all if desired please?

This is a wonderful script, many thanks! I have a question: Is there a way for reducing the glass reflection of the yellow lines of the tarmac with the script on? I can't paste here screenshots for showing what I mean. I'm using v1.9.3.

Version 1.9.3 is working without problems. Thanks

Whenever using the version 1.9.2 instead of 1.9.1 it doesn't work, stopping lua. The log file says:

*** Lua stack ***

Number of elements: 1

Element no. 1 is: ...sources/plugins/FlyWithLua/Scripts/rxp-xp12-enhancer.lua:625: Error loading file :C:\Simulation/X-Plane 12/Resources/plugins/FlyWithLua/Scripts/rxp-xp12-enhancer.ini


There is no such ini-file (as well as when using 1.9.1)

Many thanks! Wonderful.

For some reason, this script goes straight into the quarantine folder. I followed the install instructions so not sure why.

I've used previous versions last summer and loved it. Then tried some other visual mods. Coming back to this latest version, whenever I load the script my Xplane goes very overexposed. Any idea what's going on with it?

What else can I say about this addon other than that it is Excellent !!

My most sincere congratulations to the developer and thanks a lot for sharing it with us !!

Wow game changer indeed! It’s amazing that you can manage to not let the menu pop up and by tweaking to your liking by default rather than doing it prior to every flight.

Thank you for this excellent script which indeed makes great improvements to my XP12 experience.

Just one issue encountered with when I set "auto_show_wnd      = false ," in order to stop the window showing automatically, it causes my XP12 to display just a full white screen. As soon as I change the setting back to 'true' everything works just fine, but of course I have to close the script window manually.

Any thoughts what might be causing this?

Just one more addon everyone will really need and love. For me it escpecially caused to get a real pleasure of flying Thranda's Daher Kodiak, which PFD/MFD panel looked terrible while looking down the cockpit. But all of planes look now much better. Thank you very much!

Great plug in but unfortately it clashes with another plug in called ITC Lights which I prefer as I can increase airport lights brightness with it.
