Quite impossible because it depends on the system you have and personal preference.
i have a good system it can run it on ultra smoothly but I can't find the best config that matches real life sky cause i saw some people getting some amazing sky graphics with sol config...

Again, nobody can provide you that.
With system I meant type/brand/specs of monitors (or VR ?), single, triple, different GPU's etc...
It's all about personal preference.
Just experiment with sol config until you find what you like.
If you copy an 'amazing' sky from someone doesn't mean it'll look the same on your system.
Also video/photo may differ hugely from what you get on your screen(s).

I've never been particularly impressed with how the 3D clouds look in Sol (I can't unsee The Simpsons opening credits when they're active) and much prefer the more natural looking 2D skyboxes. There's no occasional 'sun shaded by cloud' light variation and thunderstorm lightning doesn't work with 2D clouds, but IMO those are small concessions to get a more natural looking (and less distracting) sky. Performance always used to be better with 2D clouds as well (especially in very cloudy conditions) but I'm not sure if that's still the case. 3D clouds can give weird perspective effects in VR too, especially when a cloud that looks close in 3D drops behind a 'distant' mountain.
The only issue with 2D clouds was a slight shadow on the track about 10m in front of the car, but that seems to have gone for most tracks in recent CSP builds.
YMMV.

Try to reduce the "smog" setting to your taste. I have it now at 5% and very happy with it. It's on SOL config page 6. Oh and use 2D clouds please.

Morning all. Would anybody know if there’s a mod with the 2008-2011 style DTM cars at all? I’ve looked everywhere whilst feeling nostalgic but can’t find anything. Cheers
I never ask for mods as it’s a little demanding and I appreciate that these cars are bred through people’s free time, however I am shocked that these DTM cars haven’t made it to Assetto Corsa yet.

They’re available in Forza 4 (and I would give it a go but I just don’t have the free time to try to learn how) so if anyone is looking for a new project… ;)

Great idea of merging both gravel and tarmac rims into one alongside extra spotlights, tons of rally cars have separate variants with either rims and ones with spotlights on as well, would love to see you do that kind of stuff with the other rally cars we currently got in AC as well.

That's the Audi at least I think, though it's not very good.

I plan to do a few more rally car conversions, although I'm going slowly as my free time is limited, here are screenshots of two more I'm working on

Just want to let you know that I personally converted that Skoda Fabia WRC 2005 from DiRT Rally 2 to AC already a long time ago and looks fantastic, albeit I personally deleted the weird-ass looking gear shifting thing it originally has in the game since it looks ugly to me...For the rest, I think you could work on mine on merging all rims and toggle its spotlights as well, not to mention make many more skins for it as well.

i ran 3d clouds since day 1 with sol but oh my god i never thought that the 2d clouds would look so much better !

there is no point in using the 3d clouds now i think

but did you separate all the meshes and so on when converting it? In order to add the door animations, it is necessary to separate the meshes and in this fabia, the rear hood cannot separate the mesh correctly. for 206 I was able to separate everything well. I would like to see yours anyway, where can I find it?

I'm actually planning on doing that whenever I'll eventually get back on modding for AC once I'll upgrade my PC with better components, this counts on future conversions of mine and reworks of other mods as well, since back then I never really was aware that much about animations and CSP stuff for AC at all, when I found out some of the features of CSP which can be applicable in almost any car mod, it was there it inspired me and want to learn about making animations and CSP features in the future.

You can find it inside my private Facebook group called 'Assetto Corsa 2 - Your Real Driving Simulator', just search for "Skoda Fabia" or click on the "Cars" tag in order to find all downloadable cars there including mines.

Have driven a few other cars now, but unfortunately can't reproduce your problem. Sorry.
No need to apologize, thanks.
To have this problem, you need a track from easy and the latest Porsche EGT from URD.
Just follow the trajectory.
