Don't make your assets too bright.
4 items
Rebalanced and customizable lighting and tonemapping.
Also includes 7 different LUTs.

Adjustments: brightness, gamma, contrast, overall temperature/tint, sun temperature/tint, sky temperature/tint, moon temperature/tint, moon light, twilight tint, sky tonemapping(side effect: reduced fog).

UPDATE (Apr 30, 2018)
Includes (failed) fix for shadow acne - dynamic shadow bias. (Thanks to saki7)
(Side effect - sometimes shadows look detached.)
updated again to add "force low shadow bias" setting which will fix the detached shadows but again introduce acne, really tired of fighting this game but you have to make a choice between detached shadows or shadow acne...

Added disable shadow smoothing toggle. (Thanks to TPB)

Hotkey: Shift + Alt + L

Balanced for global light 5.0 and ambient light 1.0 settings in ultimate eyecandy. (exactly middle of sliders)
Default can look dark, so just turn it up lol why do I need to explain that like 100 times.

Note that the map theme can affect the look of the lighting because it contains sky tint and rayleigh scattering.

Shadows must be set to max using Shadow Strength Adjuster otherwise it will look like the sun is leaking through objects. If you want to reduce shadow strength, use ultimate eyecandy to reduce global light intensity and increase ambient light intensity, this is the proper way to make shadows less visible.

Definite conflict: (DISABLE/UNSUBSCRIBE)
Softer Shadows

Potential problems: (CHECK SETTINGS)
Daylight Classic (classic sunlight color/intensity and classic fog color must be disabled)

LUTs setting is useless because who would use vanilla LUTs anyway.
Color is useless as it will be overridden by Relight.
Intensity and position is useless because you can set that using Eyecandy.
Classic fog effect is for cubemap replacer. (may need older daylight classic version)
Classic fog color does some weird stuff idk.

Thank you to:
Simon Royer for the UI / saving and preset system, help with raycasting for shadow bias formula
saki7 (sksk) for showing how to change shadow bias
TPB for showing how to disable shadow smoothing

....or a conflict with another shift + alt + L key command set by another mod.
LemonsterOG Oct 15 @ 6:19am 
The panel opens for me when I press shift + alt + L

If it's not working for you, then it's a conflict with another mod.

Thanks for replying LemonsterOG, I still have an issue of having no remnant of the mod ingame, even in a city where it previously worked with no issues at all. Would love to hear if anyone else experiences this.

Note: I'm actively using Relight as I type this, so there's no issue with the mod itself.

It's my understanding that Ploppable Asphalt hasn't worked in quite some time.
zoeronen Oct 9 @ 11:29pm 
The mod has recently disappeared from the game, even after disabling and re-enabling in content manager. I may have toggled on a couple of things I haven't been using, but nothing visual. Could something like Find It, Ploppable Asphalt, Surface Painter or Extra Terrain Tools be causing incompatibility?
BTW, I am not getting any errors on Loading Screen, but the shortcut no longer works and the options tab is not there.
Thanks in advance for any help.
