    Added the updated files to the OP (under known issues). Thanks to MOJ98 for bringing attention to this and thanks to txgt for helping fix it.

    Good to know I could help. If you want the fog to stay far away use this setting in your Storm <EnvironmentSettingsContainer: envfogsettingsFog="1991434354"

    This great!!! Now it really feels like this mod is on a definitive state.

    I really wish Ubisoft developers could see the work modders did on this game, including this mod right here. It's looks very polished and "vanilla", that is, not tweaked and modded in a lazy way, but in a complete and careful way.

    If you stop to think, it's kinda ridiculous how, for example, WD with Danvsw's mod looks better than pretty much any GTA V "extreme graphics mod" and better than the biggest majority of realistic (present days) open world games, if it's not THE best looking one right now.

    Also, it looks better than WD2 itself, ironic huh? And all of that without terribly murdering performance. I can run the game at 1080p, high settings at over 30+fps with this mod with a GTX 760 + i5 2400, it really is impressive for the graphical level that i see on-screen. It makes it feel like developers never do the "full job" on tweaking and exploring graphical features as much as possible, only a few games give that feeling, like Uncharted 4 or the recently released Horizon Zero Dawn for example (console exclusives, notably).

    I want to congratulate Danvsw's, txgt, and all of the other old and new modders here who did such work to this game! It feels fresh just because of the mods, and shows the industry of gaming that they could explore the full potential of an engine without killing performance. WD became a great example for the general modding community.

    @Danvsw - A random question for you :p
    Why would you want to put fog farther away on rainy weather?
    I'm not saying that you shouldn't, i just think that it looks pretty correct the way it is right now.

    Pretty good, thanks again mate.

    Thanks man. Appreciate the kind words.
    About fog, I know it's correct, I just personally really dislike fog in video games. The effect itself never looks convincing enough to me. So I prefer it far away.

    Hi, loving this mod to pieces, but is there a way to reduce depth of field? I like the effect, but sometimes feels a tad too much. Also, is there an easy way to tweak the mod a bit brighter?

    Thanks in advance and thanks again for the great mod! Made me actually finally start Watch Dogs :)

    Edit: The DOF also seems to "pop-out" when I'm running. Is there a fix to that or is there maybe a way to implement vanilla version of the DOF somehow?

    Hey, thanks for figuring this out. Originally I thought when he was talking about the bug, he meant brightness. This has helped me fix it in my mod too.

    Thanks! Can these be added to Danvsw natural & realistic lighting-mod and can it be done simply adding/overwriting a file?

    Edit: Also any help where exactly should I extract "modified vegetation & vanilla trees" files? Is there ie "textures"-folder somewhere?

    Hey there. I've been using txgt's mod Watch Dogs E3 Lite v2 for a long time and I love the look of it.
    However when I try to run some of the digital trips like the spider one I get all kinds of messed up graphics.
    I'm wondering if this is an issue with this mod as well?


    P.S. I also had the save game file issue mentioned above where the game just would stop loading.
    I solved this by swapping back to the original files, loading my game, letting it save again then switching back to the mod.

    Sure np. The spider loads then at most angles the screen freezes except for the HUD and that behaves like that old windows error where it smears across the screen.
    The racing digital trip will not load. The flower one seems to be fine and I have not tested the alien invasion one.
    Tested without mods and it runs fine.

    It's very likely that the bloom preset is miscalibrated, can you delete the bloom.lib inside the unpack folder and repack the files?

    The Mediafire link for the fix is dead too (server error) !

    Can you reupload it (again) ?

    What version of my E3 Lite are you using? Have you merged it with other mods? Are you using ReShade or 3DMigoto Interface tweaks (check your "bin" folder in Watch Dogs folder)?

    Hey, thanks for replying. I'm using the E3 2012 Extra Bundle V2.2 From the Variety pack I added only the all cars on demand, remove the white outline and play as NPC. I used normal so that's the 3Dmigoto method.
    Thank for any help.

    The white outline mod is broken. Try this one: http://www71.zippyshare.com/v/MmM3oAun/file.html
