lgfrbcsgo's Improved Lighting Mod v3.0.01
.
With the introduction of patch 0.8.6 the lighting of the maps "Murovanka", "Airfield" and "Widepark" changed. Since I didn't
like the new dark looking of these maps, I decided to change the skyboxes and the lighting to create a new atmospheric
looking. This mod changes the lighting and skyboxes for most of the maps. It also removes the fog, that came with 0.8.8.
.

Sacred Valley, Karelia, Himmelsdorf, Lakeville, Murovanka, Wide Park, Cliff, El Hallouf, Airfield, Redshire, Fishing Bay, Live
Oaks, Highway, Pearl River, Arctic Region, Prohorovka, Sewerogorsk, Westfeld, Port, Ensk,Erlenberg, Fjord, Steppes
.

.
Comparison
.
Note: The fps remain the same, since I am only changing the sky texture and the lighting settings (XML document). I also
tested the mod in training rooms and there weren't any fps drops (playing on a 7670m with medium settings @30fps)
.

Here are the requested comparison screenshots. The screenshots were directly taken from the WoT client with maxed out
graphic settings. I didn't touch saturation, contrast, hue, lightness or exposure of any of these images.

.

.
Feedback
.
Big thanks to the guys from the Youtube channel "The G33kZone"for making this awesome comparison video. There is a
little mistake in this video, the Sacred Valley "WoT Vanilla" version is actually my version of the map, with a sun rise setting,
glittering leaves in the sun and a much warmer atmosphere. When you like this video, than check out their other awesome
videos.

"After playing for a few years now, it's sad to see that a member had to produce this. However, you did a pretty damn good
job at it. It's something we've needed for a long time, as it adds to the game... Thank you! I look forward to seeing more.

Wanna try and compare with my lighting, but byt.ly in lagg now, can you change link without byt.ly?
Downloaded.

Can i give you an advice?
Don't pack in archive sky texture, been better to replace by "skybox.visual" from map folder which you take texture, because they linked to texture.

And after that you dont needed to pack full texture file, and less archive file size.

Ah, i see, you put on all four files. It's not needed indeed, just one "skybox.visual" needed here.

Also, added package for my full mod, without SSAO and HDR.

I added new versions of the maps Murovanka and Widepark, which are using the original skyboxes.
I changed some settings in the .XML settings.
Special thanks to misscleo from NA server.

New maps are comming soon. Any map wishes?

Regards.

Can't rework all at the same time  :teethhappy:
So which map should be edited next? Maybe Live Oaks? It's a really dark map.
I'll later upload a fix for the sacred valley skybox, there is a forest in the background  :teethhappy:

Regards.

Which map needs to be reworked most? Which one you want to see reworked? The most often called map will be uploaded in its reworked version next weekend. I'm thinking of creating a poll.

Cliffs won with 13 votes (NA, ENG, GER forums). 2nd is Himmelsdorf with 12 votes and El Hallouf 3rd with 11 votes. As you can see it was really close.
Tomorrow cliffs will be uploaded, maybe there will be Himmelsdorf and El Hallouf too, since it was SOOO close  :smile:

Regards.
