Yeah, so im not dead, haha. Ive actually still been tweaking this mod to make it perfect, as well as working on a few other mods that enhance the landscape of San Andreas. I figured id update this download file, since its nearly a year old.
Anyway, what ive done is I updated the ambient lighting to make it more natural looking. I used a reference to a color temperature chart, which tells me whatshade of each color is actual color of sunlight etc. Sunny days are less yellow. Cloudy days appear more "blue", like they very much do in real life. I toned down the brightness, so much of the landscape, vehicles, and peds arent over-saturated. Smog/haze as well as the general colors of the skyhave been tweaked so they blend in better with eachother, as well as the landscape under it. Another significant change is I made night a little bit brighter [but not by much, to keep the realism in balance.] due to popular demand. So try it out, and tell me what you think!
Download the new file either here, or in the main post of this thread.
PS: Im looking forward to GTA4's realistic shadows and lighting.

Awesome work, man! I added it to the file archive too after I saw Ash's news post. The smog looks MUCH more realistic, trust me Although I think the first 12:00PM shot of Grove Street looked better before the mod, it's a good compromise - the rest are way better

Thanks rappo! Yeah, I used photo-realistic colors for the sky, including smog. We get smog up here in the Bay Area too, so ive had my references. The very smoggy days are actually based on a smokey sky from local wildfires in my area back in October. The sky was actually that orange during sunset, and i tried to make the sunset in-game appear as close as I could to that one in real life.

Hello new here, I joined yesterday but for the life in me I couldn't post anywhere.
This is an awsome mod, but I have no idea how I should "safely" install. Can't use SAMI, and the last bad file I installed with IMG 2.o tool (following instructions), I had to reinstall my game. Good I started with fresh game play.
While I'm asking, with SAMI, I installed a car mod that's a blisten police car and it replaces the the LosSantos police car. I tried looking for to un-install it but it's no-where to be found. I gave it a name but it's not there, I even installed it again using the same name, and then un-installed it, the first one is still in the game. It's slowing the game play. Can anyone help?
