According to name, this mod changes the weather in much more realistic side. It makes the weather less cartoonish, adds some new special effects (like the new effect of horizon). Modification is developed to a very good quality, attention paid to every small detail, every setting is bound to change, so you can say "goodbye" to the white-nights, green skies and other stuff like that. All weather settings is based on realistic photographies and time-lapses of towns and coutries at different weather and time.
GTA San Andreas weather was 100% made from scratch, independent from original weather settings.
GTA IV weather based by TBoGT weather, but with heavy changes of every weather option.
First time this project was considered only for GTA San Andreas, but when i learned the basic options of weather settings in GTA IV, I started to make this mod for GTA IV and EFLC in parallel to GTA San Andreas' one.
- Realistic Sun Lighting
- Realistic Sky Colors
- Realistic Sun Size
- Realistic Shadows
- Realistic Lamp Lighting
- Realistic Clouds Colors and Options (Like no more clouds at Extra-Sunny Weather)
- Increased Draw Distance by 1.5-4X
- Some New Effects (Smog in LS, Improved Fog, New Sky at Horizon)
- Improved Reflections for GTA IV and EFLC
- Smooth Sky Gradient in SA
And much much more
This mod is built only by pure weather settings modding (timecyc.dat files). It won't use any side graphic mods like EnbSeries by both games.
So, meet the new RealCYC SA-Series and RealCYC IV-Series.
