    Watch Dogs Dark FX Ver1

    Tried and tested with texture mods such as TheWorseMod, DefinitiveEdition and MergedMod Final.
    Take note that the Mod used in this video was the MergedModFinal by Marduk, I recommend his mod because it blends well with
    the tint and color of Dark FX.

    CAVEAT!
    There will be bugs and issues, such as occassional flickering bright lights (just pause the game 2-4 times to remedy this
    rare problem),
    The effects of this mod varies when combined with other mods as the latter differs in tint and color combination,
    I used MergedModFinalV2+plus
    textures mod as it works perfectly, but other mods works just as well.

    INSTALLATION:
    1. Copy all of the contents of the "DarkFX Files" folder and paste it to your WatchDogs bin folder.
    2. Enjoy!


    Features of this mod:

    -Customized Ambient Occlusion
    (Optimized Reymarch AO)
    -Darkened skies
    (The sky is now darker but emits a yellow and light blue flares upon certain thresholds)
    -An overall darker but colorful ambience
    (This includes darker buildings, roads and pure colors but does not affect the bloom during daylight especially when the sun is high).
    -Added the following lighting effects
    Anamorphic Lensflare, Gaussian Anamorphic Lensflare, Bloom,Lens Dirt, Godrays,opmitized to counter performance hit
    -Darker rains and storms
    -Using headlights, lamposts and other light sources is now vital to gameplay during dim hours.
    -Sharper HD-like image
    Tweaked, so as not to affect antialiasing
    -Darker but colorful nights.
    Tweaked so as not to have pitch black nights
    -Sharper water reflections
    (Reflected colors are much more solid)



    This mod is merely for fun and gaming and has not in any way been created, produced and sold for profit,
    Credit to the makers of MasterEffect and Reshade.

    i advice you to change the new brightness setting in the gamer profile to "0.96"
    that way the reshade does now effect the hud and menus.

    Hope that helped :)

    In your video you have bugged car lights. It seems like you have outdated files.

    Not bad ! But too much bloom.

    Ok, the sky is bright, but you don't see anymore its details.

    I agree, Im continously tweaking it and the updates have been great so far, lessened the sky bloom :)

    I have seen your mod and it seems to me very interesting, especially daytime lighting. You have achieved this by changing only the files of the game?You have also used sweetfx or Reshade? when you think you share your mod? :eyes::eyes::)

    Hi, my mod is just a simple reshade file/master effect, I havent modified any game file so as not to interfere with the preference of players, not to mention modding the game file is a bit complicated for me as im still fresh when it comes to this. Sorry if it took awhile but I will release this mod asap, maybe today, Cheers!

    Not bad ! I will use it for sure ! I created (but not yet released) a texture pack that will like this ^^

    I hope it'll merge well with Watch Dogs Definitive (especially the nights).
