@Frkn64 Could you please lower the AI headlight power and spread (wide). Everytime someones passing me they light up my cabin, often happens during day aswell. Also the light infront of the car shouldnt be visible during the day at all. By all means this is the best flare mod ever made. Thank you.

The old version of the mod was a little better, the beacon flares now looks just like huge deformed flashers, we no longer even see the shape of some beacon mod like accessories HR2 or Whelen Lightbar . can we have some fix on beacon and flasher flares ?

Can we get an update fixing beacon lights? So far I can see a small light moving around but it's not really visible. Thanks.

Thank you for your answer Frkn64.

Meanwhile I moved to your alternate version of this mod. I guess it's the same about backlight brightness like this mod. When playing at night or in the evening, it's better. So I think, it's daylight which makes them harder to see.

Anyway, sad that modding is that limited in this case.

Last, but not least: Thank you for your mods.

Hello Seraplin,
You're right about that but we(modders) can only do the lighting adjustments by editing the SCS's codes and we have only two choices to adjust brightness of rear lights: current dimmed brightness or high brightness of brake lights.
If I do the brightness of the brake lights for rear lights, it will be very bright.
And Fentomaedus Legionis is right. Before the update, brightness of the rear lights and brake lights was same.
So, unfortunately there is nothing I can do for now.

Thank you for your answer, Fentomaedus Legionis

To be honest, I can't remember how it has been in the old version. If it has been SCS making the backlights more darker, that's been a bad decission imho. If I drive my car at night in reality I'm able to tell the way of the road due to the lights of the other cars in front of me. I can't do the same in ETS2 now. I think, backlights should have almost the brightness of breaking lights to feel real.

Any chance to get more brighter backlights in your mod, Frkn64?

This is caused after the re-works of the lights by SCS Software theirselves, not by this mod.

Hello Frkn64 ... I'm using your mod with the recent ETS2 version.

I recognized one thing, I dislike: It's hard to see the backlight of cars driving some distance in front of you at night. I think, they should be much more visible. Is it your mod, which makes them so dark or may there be some compatibility problems? Or isn't your mod affecting AI traffic at all, and I have to look elsewhere?

Yes but Realistic Graphics Mod not updated for now.

This is included in your realistic graphics mod?
