Realistic Night Lighting Mod 1.0

About This File

Tired of dull nightlighting, and tiny dots for streetlights?

This mod enhances the night lighting for the game, by giving the lighting in-game a complete overhaul!

 

Features:

- Brighter lights on buildings at nights

- Streetlights are larger and brighter, they are also a more realistic, orange color as well.

 

See your cities in a whole new way! :)

 

 

* Please note that this mod was made from a series of experiments, and is still in the expiremental stage. This is the first version, and first mod that changes the streetlights, so it does have the following bugs:

 

- Some tiling can be seen in the street lighting (common in diagonals).

- The street lights could still be even larger and cover more (especially on large roads, but I can't at the moment due to tiling issue, but it will be done in the next version)

Other than that, they are much better than the old, default lights.

 

To install:

1. Download File

2. copy the .patch file into the paks folder

3. start up the game, switch to any of the night modes and see your cities like you never seen them before!

4. Enjoy!! :)

Wow, great work ! Night lighting in CXL was really a problem before, because by night the scenery was all too dark to see anything... Buildings are really nice with this plugin, but I noticed something wrong with streetlights, as there are kind of "lighter squares" around the light circle when the camera is close to the ground... except this it looks really more realistic!

This patch made the buildings brighter, but the streetlights stayed the same? One time they randomly worked, but other than that, I cant get them to? Please help!
