VisualV 1.0.300

_CP_ & robi29
VisualV is a graphic overhaul modification for Grand Theft Auto V, bringing you a completely redone weather effects, edited modificators for areas/interiors, improved color correction and much much more to add some life to Los Santos and Blaine County as well as a fixed rendering code, so your playing experience will be more smooth and nicer.

What was changed in VisualV?

- All weathers rewritten from scratch, based on hundreds of Los Angeles photos and movies.
- Draw distance of lights was increased and they are more visible.
- Moon movement is corrected (no more moonrise at west!).
- Moon size was matched to the real world.
- Volumetric fog effect was improved, now it's stunning as it should be.
- Clouds colors, intensity and movement were built from scratch.
- Shadows under vehicles are in higher quality, so they aren't blocky anymore.
- Chromatic aberration and vignetting were removed from the normal gameplay.
- Lens flares are all the same for three lead characters.
- Dithering effect from the grass was removed for good, rainy weathers will make it great!
- And many, many minor fixes.

VisualV has own ReShade and ENB presets, with heat haze effect available only for VisualV.
There are few optionals improvements like:
- procedural shadows (shadows added for small objects like bottles, boxes etc.)
- advanced motion blur
- disabled lens flares and much more.

- Fixed an issue with motion blur while changing weapons as NPC.
- Fixed an issue with generating clouds in clearing weather at 5:00/21:00.
- Fixed an issue where thunderbolts didn't emit their lighting at 5:00/21:00.
- Fixed an issue with the sun which wasn't reflected on vehicle's windshield.

Addon changes:
- ASI script was optimized. (Advanced Motion Blur)

    @_CP_ great mod. I had just one concern, the mod works great . But i have a sheriff2 suv (2013 tahoe) and it made the siren on top dark. Oddly it did it with said vehicle only. Any fix for this ? the siren works, i'm using radiance v, and installed the supplied oiv compatibility mod, but again siren turned from clear to dark near black

    @_CP_ Okay okay, we'll wait.
    Anyway, could be the next version offer brighter city nights (since street lamps doesn't luminate well spread), and darker countryside?
    Also, I wish the storms be more intense if possible.
    And it would be nice to see "Halloween" timecycle being a proper post-apocalyptic design, with some rain and thunderdrops time to time. Maybe even nuclear snow ^^
    BTW I have a bug, but that's maybe because of system-synced time: All snowy weather becames pink-ish, then resets to realistic look when passing a timecycle-modifier area.

    Enjoy Life! :)

    @_CP_ Hey there, I know how to use this mod with RadianceV but I would like to switch it up and use this mod "http://www.lcpdfr.com/files/file/7715-improved-spotlight-and-led/".

    Have you come across users using that mod with this before? That mod does the same thing as radiance V as it targets siren lights. Any special install instructions you know of?
