I couldn't decide if it looked better or worse with the color correction off... maybe I'll run a few maps later with it off again.
I've never seen that setting change so much in a game before. It's been in TF2 for a long, long time... and seemingly did nothing.
I had to disable bloom/lens flares too... I just don't understand why every light has to be overbearingly bright and glowing in my face... Skyrim suffered from the same exact problem (with no simple way of disabling it either).
Do people really see the world like this? That must be awful.
