Thumbs up San Andreas Weather Modification, Version 2

LAST UPDATED: Jan 10, 2008

Alright, so i've finally finished a rather big update for this mod. I thought it would be appropriate to make a new thread, since the old one is dead.

What's new:
- Improved draw distance
- Improved sunrises and sunsets
- Improved lighting (Its not as bright as version 1 was, nor as yellowish, and certainly not as dull as the original game)
- more realistic sky colors (no pale blue and flourescent yellow skies anymore!)
- improved moon (its smaller and higher resolution)
- improved high altitude clouds

Here's some comparison screenshots for you to enjoy:



















To Install:

- Extract "timecyc.dat" to your data folder
- Using TXD editor [found either here or at gtagarage] replace "coronamoon" texture inside of particle.txd found in models folder with mine.


Also, be sure to turn down your in-game brightness down as low as possible. Otherwise the game will be too bright. You've been warned.

Please respond with comments, and be sure to check back every so often for updates! Thanks!

Hmm the screens look good except the bone county one, is it possible to fix the overbrightness on the buildings in the daytime? Other than that the mod looks great

Its possible, but i tried it and i thought it made the appearance a bit dull...

As for bone county, the desert really does get that dark....

Check this real photo taken in Death Valley:

Dark eh?

I can't download + i don't have SA Mod Installer. And imo it's still overbright, looks better though.

This is amazing! The sunset on Santa Maria looks great. I never thought you could make it even better. Great job.

Btw, I just noticed something. Did you also change the blood? It's different as the original:


And that was a sunrise, not a sunset, sorry.

That is insane rcguy! But i wish i still had the game installed. Rockstar threw a couple of stuff in to make it realistic. That was the demise
