Brings back original daylight color and fog settings from pre-After Dark versions of C:S

IT'S A MOD, NOT A LUT! This mod doesn't require After Dark DLC!

Are you annoyed with that yellow tint that turns days into permanent evenings? Are you annoyed with your favorite LUTs not working after upgrade to C:S 1.2 (a.k.a After Dark)? Are you annoyed with over-saturation? Are you annoyed with bluish fog? Then this mod is for you.

It attempts to recreate original light conditions from better days. As side effect, this mod makes night slightly brighter.
If you're annoyed with new fog/clouds effect, you can use my Clouds & Fog Toggler mod. I highly recommend you to disable fog if you use play with Day/Night cycle enabled becuase fog effect that was introduced in After Darks has bluish tint.

What this mod does (with all options enabled - these features can be disabled individually):
- Changes sunlight intensity to pre-AD value. If you're a Time Warp user, you can adjust sun light intensity using that mod's options.
- Cahnges sunlight tint from yellowish to clear white.
- Replaces stock LUTs with LUTs from pre-AD
- If Day/Night cycle is disabled replaces fog & lighting effect with effect from pre-AD (much more beautiful and no bluish tint!)
- Restores classic sun positions. If you're a Time Warp user, you can adjust Longitude/Latitude to your liking.
- Removes greenish tint from fog if AD fog effect is enabled (makes surises/sunsets less dramatic though).
- Provides options entry to enable/disable features

First 2 screenshots were made without LUT enabled in Boreal biome. On screenshot 5 you can see how this mod fixes Photoreal3 LUT. Screenshots 3 and 4 demonstrate the difference in Snowfall DLC's Winter environment.

I subscribed to this mod, but can't figure out which of the screenshots (with/w/o the mod) I like better. Lol. The blue sky in the regular version looks nice, but not sure about the comparison of the other parts.

@Blackwolf That issue is harmless. Happens on exit since mod release probably. I'm just too lazy to fix it :)

Note I don't think that's what has broken my game but I'm not sure if it's an issue you need to fix or not so posted it anyhow :)

BloodyPenguin I wold like to suggest something to you as a mod but I can't seem to be able to find where I can start private conversation. I have tried numerous times to add you as a friend but still nothing. How can I do this?
