    TGOT seems to have lost interest in WD and WD modding. He worked a lot on it. He is now involved with other games.

    He may come back later, but don't expect too much. He's done a lot of work. Now it's up to us to complete it.

    Don't blame him. He is only 14 after all.

    I guess were his successors... :eyes:

    [EDIT:] Holy moley, I just discovered a glitch...

    Sprint, then press focus, then while sprinting, press W and A or D at the same time. Expect to go lightspeed.

    Remember the bloom stuff... Yeah... I'm stupid, I was putting the edits in again... The wrong files. :giggle2: I truely suck at this...

    all light are pre backed in WD, you can notice that they are just some kind of textures if you turn up the brightness and start to notice dithering, the only dynamic light might the sun, i might be wrong but thats my guess, you can find some talk about WD lighting system if you google it

    They're dynamic light probes on next-gen and pc. But on last gen they just use cheap lighting to avoid performance fall. Of course the lighting on next gen aint nothing either. Poor ubisoft did the same thing on the division again. Having a look at the e3 gameplay and the recent screen shots youll find that they have cut most of particles affect as well as global illumination. The texture and reflection had a strong scale down as well.

    There are 2 major light sources in Watch Dogs. One is sunlight and another is locallight. Sun light, moon light during blackout and vehicle headlights might br sunlight as far as i discovered while streelights, sky lights and some sunbounce use locallight.

    Moonlight is active not only in blackouts. If you go in dark open place you'll notice like the buildings and other objects are lit from one side. Blackout uses it's own moonlight setting in it's own envlight xml which overrides the global env lighting's moonlight setting. If you set moonlight to "0" in standard envlighting for Clear weather there will be total darkness around Aiden in dark open places like Pawnee forest for example.

    Usually the moonlight is locallight.

    What do you mean by locallight?

    Edit: nevermind, forgot about your previous post.

    You just wrote "moon light during blackout" and I just wanted to correct you on that, that's all. :)

    Previously you aksed my how to rip off the blury moon reflection during blackout, right? I can tell you now it's basically impossible because moonlight will transform from "locallight" into "sunlight" during blackout and no one knows where the trigger is located.

    Those screens look like they've been taken from The Vanishing of Ethan Carter :)
    Not bad. But not to my taste.

    Actually I don't think that during the blackout moonlight is transforming into "sunlight" because buildings/objects/npcs do not cast any shadows from moonlight like they do from the sunlight. The moonlight is acting like the vanilla light from headlights which do not cast shadows and the light is coming through obstacles lighting up the objects behind them. But they have speculars. So does the moonlight. In car dynamic lighting xmls we can turn on and off the speculars. So normally the specular from the moonlight (the blurry moon reflection as you called it) is off, but when the blackout is triggered it simply turns on. The lighting itself doesn't change.

    Thanks :) The Preset is also not finish yet. I am tweaking to get the Right balance with Definitive Mod lighting and Aiming for something that looks similar to a Natural ENB you would see in Skyrim.

    Those screens are tests to see what ye guys thought and are decreased in size from 1440p to 900p in order to upload quick with my crappy Internet!

    It's still pretty rainy, but now it's bearable.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Soo... Anyone fixed those weird blue shadows in the test release?

    Cause they're pretty gross... :puke2:

    Did you try my pack ? It's the test version + my textures + My Reshade Preset (no change of the mood).

    I didn't saw theses blue shadows. You should try to stick with High settings with Ultra textures.

    Okay, I'll try it out! :)

    [EDIT:] I found out that the bright lighting is directly caused by me editing the E3_2013.Storm_Bloom.xml file. :3eyes:

    I don't know if this is possible or not, but is it possible to bring back the old profiler/weapon wheel from the demo's?
