    Go stand out in a field of a night, result is it's dark. Stand in the CBD of a night, sections of it will be dark.

    It doesnt matter what the hell night looks like in real life. The reason games typically don't make their nights that dark is that it impacts gameplay (in a negative sense). How dark it was at night was perfectly fine.

    If I want to use the Maldo textures, do I simply need to set my textures to high? Or do I also need to use "optimized LOD?"

    If it doesnt matter what it looks like in reality, why are MODS trying to replicate a real life environment? Also, how can a modder produce physics and lighting enhancements if he has no benchmark... i'd say that TW is using what he see's as a reality with his MOD ideas, so suggesting that "It doesnt matter what the hell night looks like in real life" is a little silly.

    Games are actually dark when they simulate night time, look at Thief, Dishonored, Alan Wake, Outlast and GTA IV. You use the environment like headlights, a torch or a flare when it's dark. Thats why these games have such things. Watchdogs has a blackout option because when its enabled the city is black - like real life (when there are no lights on)

    can someone please help me installing?
    I get no errors at all. But no Patch.dat / Patch.fat are created
    I have Watch Dogs on Steam, wich then automatically opens uPlay for me to play it (if that's revelant info)

    been at at this for hours, and still nothing! *sigh*
    Do you get an unclickable "Open File - Security Warning" pop-up after you tick that iPhone-like application with your prefered settings, too?

    WDtool popup hidden instruction.
    Go to Internet Options
    Security tab
    Custom level
    Scroll down to misc
    Launching applications
    Tick enable **change back when done**

    Go back to wdtool and try again.
    Command prompt should flash
    Then check data file for patch.fat/dat file

    Then go have fun

    I had the same problem, couldn't get past the Open File Security warning. Got past it by disabling the security feature. You have to do it in IE.

    Open Internet Explorer
    Internet Options/Settings/Custom settings.

    Then set "Launching applications and unsafe files" to "Enable"

    You can then run the mod installer without the unclickable pop up.

    After, you can restore the default security settings if you wish.

    Did you correctly paste the game path into the config file before launching the config utility?

    Here are some screenshots I took.
    I know I didnt remove HUD, I already tried in GamerProfile.xml and it stayed the same.
    FXAA also helps with texture aliasing a bit since the whole image is postfx processing it blurs the edges instead of accuracy like SMAA
    Tweaks used:
    Realivision SweetFX profile + TheWorse 0.8 + Maldo Textures with LOD optimization + Kadzait24 5.0 Beta 0.2 & personal tweaks for performance vs. quality.

    If anyone wants me to share let me know
    :)

    **EDIT**
    Here you go you ****s!!!!

    Thank you for your hard work! TheWorse, Maldo and everyone who has contributed towards making this game how it should be. I'm in love this collaborative effort and hope it definitely continues to be something actually "Next gen"
