CHANGELOG V 9.0.5 12/29/2016

- Corrected the color value for the Police Helicopter's searchlight. It was too blue due to human error whilst editing the visualsetting.dat
- Increased the intensity of interior light, it was too weak.
- Toned down the brightness of emissive settings for general emergency light and sirens. If it is still too bright for your taste, decrease the value from 3000 lower to between 2000-1000 range. Just tweak it until you find the sweet spot.

car.defaultlight.day.emissive.on 3500.00 ( CHANGE VALUE LOWER IF IT IS TOO BRIGHT )
car.defaultlight.night.emissive.on 3150.00 ( CHANGE VALUE LOWER IF IT IS TOO BRIGHT )

========================================================

OTHERS :

- IF YOU DON'T WANT THE INDICATOR LIGHTS TO BE ALWAYS ON, TWEAK THE FOLLOWING VALUES TO THIS. IF YOU ARE USING POLICE CAR MODS, YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN'T TOUCH THIS.

car.indicator.day.emissive.on 500.00
car.indicator.night.emissive.on 500.00
car.indicator.day.emissive.off 0.000
car.indicator.night.emissive.off 0.000

========================================================
- There is a fix for all Orange lights on Staniers, just install that "Amber lights and Clear Lightbar" mod.You need to replace the files inside the .ytd files. The tutorial from FirstThirtyMinutes is very helpfull. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYWbyPj7Fso (You can find the mod in the description as well) And you maybe need to replace it in multiple files (i needed to do it in Patchday3ng,Patchday5ng and x64e) It works for the sheriff,the undercover car and the normal one.
========================================================

- SPECIAL THANKS TO LauraXo FOR MAKING THIS REPORT :

I've included a link with a report comparing the two files. One contained a clean (but out of date) visualsettings.dat file while the other was the modified file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/nrbazvoeobw3gj3/visualsettings.dat.txt?dl=0

The file is very simple to read.
In between the = signs contains the line number, followed by the original value, you can then compare it to the value directly under it which will be the modified value.

    @Colbzter You can edit the brightness by editing the "visualsettings.rpf". Whatever the setting is under the entire lights portion under car. (search car.headlights or car.interiorlight.day/night etc) and then just drop a few notches down to your preferences. Some players like super bright lights that's why they're made that way or else users will complain they're not bright enough, you just need to make the edits to your liking. Extract the visualsettings file to your desktop and then use notepad or notepad ++ (recommended) and edit away, save and replace but make a backup of the original before you replace because nobody will take responsibility for you not backing up your original files.

    @RainyNguyen89 Same problem

    @GravelRoadCop How do I change the brightness of the taxi banner on top of those cars?

    @GravelRoadCop Taxi ads are way to bright, same for the plane indicators. Otherwise, nice work.

  • 8faa53 ....

    @Bass75 I think it has to do with a set of values in the visuals file being set to over 3000+ each XD. I've attempted to "nerf" as they say, these values, but doing so decreases the intensity of both taxi cabs, and LED lighting on police vehicles. Unfortunately, it seems as though the same set of "interior lights" values are used for both taxi lights and light bars for vehicles in the game.

    @jonesgaming If you read the instructions you'd clearly see that it is compatible with Visual V.

    February 07, 2017
  • Cf0bcc dr house hugh laurie wallpaper 2048x15363

    @GravelRoadCop but it's still in 1.290 ver and also, the taxi ad are way too bright.

    awesome mod 10/10

    Works great, but the issue I run into is that emergency vehicles with the rotating lights (outside of the LSPD van) are glitched in terms of the lights don't move, or will twitch. Seems it's tied to the carcols.ymt for this package as I tried swapping the visualsettings.dat and graphics.ytd without a change.
