    You know what woud be really awesome.. if the flares looked differently according to the dof. when there's more dof due to the flares being unfocused than the effect is more pronounced and when the flares are being looked at i think the effects just subtles down. and if the flares only happened during foggy weather conditions. But I know this is impossible to do though. only if the engien had this capability it would be so awesome.

    anyway I think all these flares are pretty nice. is it possible to have flares on regular lighpost around the city?
    and is it possible to add directional spotlights to the train so they point down and illuminate the ground as they pass by?

    omg i gotta look into all of these now:bang::):banana:

    I figured out how to make them almost invisible until it rains or its very dark. Same for when its rainy and foggy in the day like in Theworse 0.99. To me they should be like that but people tell me they want to see them all the time so I try to make them in the middle "not too strong or too weak". As for pointing the lights at the ground on the train "I don't know". I do think its possible to make street light have a dynamic flare. There is a light in the beginning of the game that maybe could be used. At the beginning after you talk to Jordi. His first cut scene where Jordi stages a gunfight. After that, the cops are looking for you. You are looking down a hallway hiding behind something and there is a bright anamorphic light that makes it so you cannot see very good. I think using that lights settings, maybe it could work. Its hard to find which names go to which light sources though.

    The flare is done! For now I am totally done editing the flare. It looks how I want it to look in all kinds of lighting. Now I can focus on the last thing and I can finally call it final.

    Here is my Screenshots link If people are curious how its went through different looks to now. http://steamcommunity.com/id/SoloCreep/screenshots/?appid=sc_209450&sort=newestfirst&browsefilter=myfiles&view=imagewall

    I will put a download link in a little while. I am so relieved to finally be done editing the multiple flares that make one headlight work lol.

    Download is up for the Original E3 flare with my own changes to it. Smaller and lighter color for the halo. Wide flare is resized "not as wide" and not as bright. Round portion of the flare has a slight color change and also is not as bright as it once was. I did not want to get too far away from the original E3 2012 demo look or else it wont look like the E3 demo flare anymore =)

    My download link now has a installer. Now people who do not know how to repack files can use the flares on their favorite graphic mod a lot easier.

    SoloCreep,

    Awesome work as usual. but I can't really say I'm a fan of the camera reflection effect, or whatever you call it. Do you think you can provide a version without them? Other than that, it's a great improvement on your last flares. I just would rather prefer the flashy reflection effects to be gone.

    Are you talking about the round ring "halo"? Those are present in the E3 demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU7WGAJPRRw right after 6:10 in the video you can see the halo's. They are much bigger, I have resized them. If those are what you are talking about, yes I can upload a version with out them". I just thought people wanted what was shown at E3.

    I think he was talking about these flashes (on the left), which is not caused by your mod:

    This effect is more noticeable inside L-train (at the bottom):

    I found a bug in your v5.2 (it was in v3 too but a bit different). It's the flare on the lamp post:

    And this ugly effect are still there since v1 Beta:
    This is taken in the Pawnee Tunnel during Daytime. During Nighttime the tunnel are all lit up and flares look normal. This is Lunayah's v3.1 Personal HQ mod.

    Light pole issue a lot of us have known about since the incarnation of these flares. I am still trying to find out which file has the settings for those. As soon as I figure out which file it is, I already know how to fix it. The other thing Is a photoshop thing I guess I didn't cover properly so I can fix that with no problem at all. I will get that fixed in the next hour. Thank you for letting me know about the Chicago Club cars and these here in the tunnels. It helps me narrow down getting this to a final version.

    I would be awesome if u could indeed release a version without the halo effect.

    I just loooove ur Anamorphic Lens flares since ur first versions but, arhh.. not the halo. :)

    A version of ur latest flares but without the halo would be great option! would be awesome :D

    Hey SoloCreep, since you're the Lensflare specialist I gotta tell you about the turn signals.
    Why dafuq they're always on? I don't know why Ubisoft make them like that. I think they did it becase it just looks nice. But it's just silly!
    They're always on even in that first E3 '12 Demo! WTF?!

    [​IMG]

    There's gotta be a way to fix this cause this car doesn't have them turned on.

    [​IMG]

    SoloCreep please look into it!
