Old Versions:

This mod adds Relight to the Cities Skylines.

Authors description: Rebalanced and customizable lighting and tonemapping.
Also includes 7 different LUTs.

Adjustments: brightness, gamma, contrast, overall temperature/tint, sun temperature/tint, sky temperature/tint, moon temperature/tint, moon light, twilight tint, sky tonemapping(side effect: reduced fog).

UPDATE (Apr 30, 2018)
Includes (failed) fix for shadow acne – dynamic shadow bias. (Thanks to saki7)
(Side effect – sometimes shadows look detached.)
updated again to add “force low shadow bias” setting which will fix the detached shadows but again introduce acne, really tired of fighting this game but you have to make a choice between detached shadows or shadow acne…

Added disable shadow smoothing toggle. (Thanks to TPB)

Hotkey: Shift + Alt + L

Balanced for global light 5.0 and ambient light 1.0 settings in ultimate eyecandy. (exactly middle of sliders)Default can look dark, so just turn it up lol why do I need to explain that like 100 times. that the map theme can affect the look of the lighting because it contains sky tint and rayleigh scattering.Shadows must be set to max using Shadow Strength Adjuster otherwise it will look like the sun is leaking through objects. If you want to reduce shadow strength, use ultimate eyecandy to reduce global light intensity and increase ambient light intensity, this is the proper way to make shadows less visible. conflict: (DISABLE/UNSUBSCRIBE)Softer Shadows problems: (CHECK SETTINGS)Daylight Classic (classic sunlight color/intensity and classic fog color must be disabled) setting is useless because who would use vanilla LUTs anyway.Color is useless as it will be overridden by Relight.Intensity and position is useless because you can set that using Eyecandy.Classic fog effect is for cubemap replacer. (may need older daylight classic version)Classic fog color does some weird stuff idk.Thank you to:Simon Royer for the UI / saving and preset system, help with raycasting for shadow bias formulasaki7 (sksk) for showing how to change shadow biasTPB for showing how to disable shadow smoothingHarmony instance: com.ronyx.relight.biaspatchSource Code:[]YouTubeTwitterSimtropolis (Assets/Mods)[]Simtropolis (Tutorials/Scripts/Help)[]Asset Requests[]Donate (Ronyx)[]Donate (Simon)[]
