    This mod requires OpenIV to install

    Make a backup of your update.rpf file! Swap the backup for the modded file when you want to play Online!

    ENB INSTALLATION:
    1) Download ENB from http://enbdev.com/mod_gta5_v0275.htm & drag-n-drop those files into your base /Grand Theft Auto V/ folder.
    2) Copy my ENB files into your base GTAV installation directory and replace all files when prompted.

    GRAPHICS INSTALLATION:
    1) Use Edit Mode with the latest version of OpenIV
    2) In your /update/ folder, Open "update.rpf"
    3) Open the "common" folder, then open the /data/ folder
    4) Drag and drop the "visualsettings.dat" & "hbaosettings.xml" files from my mod download into the data folder.
    5) Navigate to the update.rpf/common/data/timecycle/ folder & drag and drop all the files from my timecycle folder.
    6) Close OpenIV, Start Game and enjoy!

    SKYDOME INSTALLATION:
    1) Using OpenIV in Edit Mode, open up x64a.rpf, then navigate to /textures/ and replace skydome.ytd with this one! No need to rebuild!

    ---------------------------------

    UPDATES:
  • v2.6 - Made tons of improvements across all timecycle files & visualsettings as well as new ENB settings!
  • v2.5 - Made further tweaks to ENB settings. Made installation instructions a bit easier to understand. Removed SweetFX files so people will be less confused about installation. Now you can use any other ReShade/SweetFX settings you want OR make your own! The new screenshots are using only timecycle, visualsettings, hbaosettings & ENB files
  • v2.4.3 - Updated to the new ENB version 0.275 settings! Remember, Shift+Enter to open ENB options if you want to play with settings!
  • v2.4.1 - Fixed the color issue that sometimes occurs when clear weather begins
  • v2.4 - This is a BIG update! I'm including a new set of TimeCycle & weather files that I've been working on for the past week. These timecycle's include color corrections that increase Realism!
  • v2.3.1 - Updated the ftimecycle_mods_1 file, fixed reflections. Big thanks to MoN09 for finding the exact problem!
  • v2.3 - Updated ENB to the latest version 0.272
  • v2.2.2 - Quick update to the SweetFX_Settings file which fixes incorrect color reflections on water
  • v2.2.1 - Quick update as I just noticed the new version of ENB is out! Taking full advantage of High Quality MSAA (only works if MSAA is turned on) and I lowered particles a bit for more realistic night lights
  • v2.2 - Edited ENB settings as well as SweetFX. Made nights a little less impossible to see in and corrected colors some more
  • v2.1.1 - New skydome replacement has a darker starfield, and looks MUCH much better with ENB + SweetFX (check out the new screenshot!) Also, I can no longer share the main dll files for the shaders. New instructions are up above on how to install them. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this is technically how everyone should be sharing their settings according to the rules of their distribution
  • v2.1 - In an attempt to get my ENB + ShaderFX working for more people, I tweaked a fresh download of SweetFX 2.0 from the ground up for warmth & visuals that make you want to take a ton of screenshots! Nights are darker, and if you want to change that, simply open the sweetfx_settings file in notepad, scroll down to the "Levels" setting, and change the first value until you find your sweet spot.
