New Summer Graphics & Weather v1.2 [Upd: 26 Nov 2020]

SCS as a company do not wish to have paid mods on this forum. While we understand that not all paid mods use the Intellectual Property of other companies/people, it is very hard to moderate what is and isn't acceptable when money is involved. There are also concerns that it could look unfavorable to potential work partners going forward if SCS allow mods that may potentially use unlicensed branding.

@grimes Still night sky is brighter when compared to ground trees(they are darker like real night). Please fix this as your mod is fantastic. Thank you. See the attachment kindly.

@grimes Can you make light during the dusk a little bit brighter? I mean about 6 -7 pm the sun is pretty high above the horizon but there is no enough light (it looks like it is well past sunset). In my game it looks like this:
6 pm:

For comparison how it looks with another graphic mod at 7 pm:

I prefer your mod so maybe you could do something about it :P
Also can I use Project nex-gen with this mod?
Btw I love your work. U r the best!

bhavya bull - Try the Darker Night Skies addon.

Delta_85_pl - With weather mods there are several different variations in lighting for each part of the day depending on how cloudy/overcast or clear it is, just as it would be IRL, it could be midday in summer but if it's very cloudy the lighting would be very dull in comparison to how be if it there were clear blue skies, so there is no set lighting for each part of the day.

Here's a couple of images in Fresno at 6pm, in the first image it's quite clear skies so it is brighter than the second image which has more overcast weather.

I'm not sure where the images you posted are but it looks southerly which means sunset is around 8pm, IMO the lighting in the image from the other weather mod looks too bright for an hour before sunset, also considering how cloudy it is.

But if you prefer it brighter you could try the Default HDR addon.

@grimes Thx for answer. As I played more with your mod I think the problem is in me :) For a year I used the other graphic mod and my eyes got use to it. Now I see that light in it was too bright and with every hour spend with your mod the game looks more and more beautiful. So big thanks for your work!
Also on ETS page of your mod you mention that it can be used with Project nex-gen. Is it also true for ATS?

Delta_85_pl - PNG only changes some default skyboxes so should be fine to use with this mod.
