Thanks to you we have now the "real" WD, as It should have been at launch.

There is only one thing I miss. A bit of Gaussian Bloom, to make shops, lights and ads spread a few light at night.

You can do it with reshade in "Shaders_by_Ioxa.cfg". With SweetFX it's named "gaussian blur".

Appreciate the compliment mate.
About the light halos, technically it's there but really subtle, as can be seen in this image https://flic.kr/p/EgoxHh
This is because I used a bloom.lib with reduced bloom (by txgt), I personally prefer it that way.

However if you want you can use the original TheWorse bloom.lib for a much more noticeable effect, like so:



You can get it here [link].

Could I get a standalone download for the vegetation in this mod?
I would like to throw it into my mod.

I don't play W_D anymore but if I did, I'd definitely try your mod.
So I'm just here to say that your video was kickass! Very well made and nicely edited and synced with the music. Top marks!

Quick question...
After using your mod, my game will continue to rain all the time even on my mod.
Tried uninstalling it, which worked until I added my mod back.

How do I make it so it doesn't constantly rain?
Thanks~

That's caused by my "windy_city.game.xml" file, you could either remove it or use my dry version's XML here [link]. It only rains during cloudy weather with this.

When you mean only, does that mean it won't ever rain during the day or night or dust?

Like, did you make it so it will only be able to rain in cloudy weather?

No, like only when it's supposed to rain according to the vanilla game.

Thanks!!!! They're looking really nice. I couldn't bear the vanilla color for grass/bushes.

Hello, after recently installing this mod, I cannot move. Like, mouse does nothing, nor does my keyboard.

Before I installed it, it was fine? What am I missing here?

E:/

Nevermind, ran it as admin and it worked.

This got me to reinstall watch dogs so thanks!

But I noticed sweetfx causing a 'The procedure entry point CreateDXGIFactory2' error.

Any ideas on how to make it work on Win10 64?

Not that I know of, that's why I made a Reshade alternative that does about the same thing and works on windows 8.1/10. The link is in the "How to install" section in the OP.

@Danvsw, I think people are having issues with the Reshade since they couldn't find the Win8.1/10 download because of the small (link) button to press.
