Description
May I present, the only mod on the GTA Community which GREATLY amps up your game's graphics, without causing the littlest loss of FPS. The game will look significanly fresh, and the screenshots can explain more than words.


About this version:-
This the very final version of the New Graphics Enhancement mod. There will be no newer versions. This mod utilised every single features available in the timecyc.dat. Here is the list of the effects:- Object-sky Reflections Built-in Sun Flare Intense Shadows Real ped lighting effect Water-sky Reflections Mist Effect Fresh Environment Colours These all will be Self-explanatory once you see the screenshots.
The Different Timecyc Sets:-
As you know, there are 5 different timecyc sets: the Real-life set, the GTA 5 set, the Original Colours set, the Bright set, and the Vivid set. There sets are different in their own ways, according to their names.To let you have the best experience, they are set to appear randomly, so that you can have a blast of mixed feelings during gameplay. The screenshots can give you an idea of what the different sets might look like.
The Weather Conditions:-
Different weather conditions of the game has been edited, which are the Sandstorm, the Foggy and the Underwater weather conditions. You can know how these look like in the screenshots. However, the most significant change is the different rain conditions. There is the Normal Rain which is basically just normal, except that it is made more realistic and brighter. The other is the Night-mare Rain. This is my favorite part of the mod. during the nightmare rain, You will only be able to see a few feet away. Driving becomes challenging, and insanely fun! I have also made the sky a bit reddish to give you an "acid rain" feeling. This type of rain will occur mostly in cities.
Installation and Compatibility:-
Installation is simple. It only involves replacing the timecyc.dat. This mod is very, very light, and is compatible with almost everything. If your PC/Laptop can run GTA SA, it will surely run on your game. For the previous version (v3) I had received lots of complains about the game becoming too much bright. This is fixed and will never happen again. Now this mod is something for everybody.
Credits:-

Yeah guys, sorry for the late reply. My monthly exams were going on, so I couldn't give much time on this page. I see i have received some comments from you guys in these two weeks, and I hope to reply to all you guys. P.S. This mod has been tested with Multi Theft Auto, so its supposed to work with SAMP too! All "multiplayers" can use this mod without any risks! @ESForces:- Yeah, your welcome, and thanks. CarlmmyJohncetti:- Thanks for the detailed feedback. About the different timecycs being it different files, I'm not too sure if I'm gonna work on that or this mod anymore - I even got a fresh game installation to play MTA (which worked :cool:) so I have completely stopped singly player modding for now. And about the shadow problem, I personally thought it wouldnt be a bad effect (I myself play the game at Low Visual FX Quality). But it is possible for you to fix it yourself -- you have to edit a few values in the timecyc.dat file. I'll be discussing this with you in a PM conversation which I will start within a week. @Rizqan:- As you know, I'll be contacting with you from now on FB. You have been a great friend since the beginning of the mod, and you were always there for me. Thanks for everything! @moshimashi:- Well, you know every person has unique likes and dislikes. If the bright environment during 6-9, then you might want to use the cheat PLEASANTLYWARM to activate the Real-life set. @Blackheart69:- :D I'm really happy to know that the idea of this mod Nailed it for you! Thanks a lot for your praising and support, and you will not miss anything. I've been testing this mod, and the timecyc transitions seem to work quite well. Thanks for the 5 stars too, and for believing that my mod is the best timecyc. It means a lot to me. And I checked out that link, I hope it will help our friend in distress. @MyTWhale:- Its good to hear from you after a long time. Your comment was fun to read, and it was helpful, as you happened to find a bug of this mod. Since my mod "makes default timecyc look smooth, clear", and since you are deeply offended by the little bug with the sun which ruined your whole scene, I recommend you to get the timecyc file from Here. Thats supposed to improve your gaming experience with the default sunrise, lighting and all (based on your level of graphics taste). Oh, and yes, when did I tell you to replace your beloved HD effectsPC.txd with my sh*tty file? :dozing: Somebody needs help in making logical decisions.

I spent the night on my favorite spot.I was waiting for the sun to come up in the desert when I saw this sh*t.http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=5vykx0&s=8#.VBv4B6xH4kA Over-bright, over-dark, over-saturated, don't trust the screens(this mod looks only good in screens), this mod is so bad it makes default timecyc look smooth, clear. BTW:I replaced my HD effectsPC.txd with your sh*tty file in extras lens flare section and nearly puked.
Blackheart69 commented a week ago:
Awesome work bro. :D .I know some people are suggesting that it should have different timecycs for Different versions BUT IT IS SO AWESOME THAT YOU COMBINED IT ALL IN ONE KILLER MOD>I have been playing around with timecyc mods from the very start and I dont want to change different timecycles 20 times a day(including playing game->quiting game->replacing file->load up game->check different timecyc). This mod could not have been better.Now just replace one file and enjoy all possible timecycs, without having to worry about missing anything.5 stars bro. :catloaf: :cookie: :breadfish:

Finally the final version is on the track! Although I've retired playing GTA SA, I'd like to say congratulations for your mod, all the memories since I stay in this mod while first development (when I newbie in GTAF and GTA Garage) till now is cannot be forgetted, although the GTA Garage's comment page isn't bugged now, for more explanation be sure to check your PM, I have inserted my FB's link inside the message, also, don't forget to online as soon as you can at FB, I'm waiting :r*: Greets GTA_SA_GURU_ZIM, maybe this is my last comment in GTA Garage (not GTA Forums), hope your mod's going to success and see you in Facebook soon! :D
CarlmmyJohncetti commented 3 weeks ago:
Having used this now, I can say this mod looks great however there a few things that could be improved. For one, from what I understand, ALL of those color sets are included in the one mod, changing at random? It would be prudent to make different timecyc files containing only a single set of colors for those that favor one over another and in keeping with the continuity of weather in the game world. Another thing and this one is really the bigger problem for me, is that the low quality "blob" sprite shadows look pretty bad because they're a lot darker than normal so they're more apparent. I don't have a good gaming PC so I play SA on low quality, and so this is an ugly problem for me. Can you please make it so that the shadows have the default level of visibility and aren't so dark? Or at least tell me how to make this change myself? Other than those problems, everything looks very much improved. The change in lighting goes a long way in changing the quality of the graphics, at times things look a little too bright but this is a common issue I've seen with timecyc mods so I guess it can't be helped. Great job!

@Takahiro855:- Yea mann thanks! :D @IcyGlacial:- To be honest, making a mod is a long and frustrating work, I'd Its been soo tiring lately, that I decided to take a break. @rokistaking187:- Yeah, its too damn fun to play in that mode. :music: @minhtroller:- To activate nightmare rain, try out these two cheats:- SCOTTISHSUMMER and AUIFRVQS the one which will have the super-low draw distance is the nightmare rain!
