Custom Effect Loader

This mod is required for props and vehicles with custom light effects. It sets up and enables the effects on level load. Just install and enable the mod and enjoy the lights :)

Cool assets with custom effects! Get them!

All Assets with Custom Effects Tag


Performance should be excellent! There is no difference between the shipped light effects and custom ones.

What if the mod breaks? Do I loose my savegame?

It's very unlikely that the mod breaks as it uses core systems of the game that weren't changed in a long time.

Props: No it won't break anything. The only effect is that props that depend on this mod will loose their light effects if the mod is no longer available. This is a purely visible mod and it can be disabled at any time!

Vehicles: For some vehicles with custom light effects (that were saved using "Extended Asset Editor"), this mod becomes a hard dependency. Luckily you can always unsubscribe broken vehicle assets if something goes wrong! Vehicles saved without EAE are not affected.

Does this still work with the latest update?

Question: in the documentation, it says that the name of an effect must be unique. Does it mean that I must name all effects differently across all assets, or for example can I use a name I used on a different asset before? If no, can I re-use an effect on another asset by using the same name?

Hey Bo, i have a problem wth blinking lights in a fence. The fence has the fence shader and all but the problem is that when the fence is bend vertically, as on a hillside as example, the lights stay in their height and don't fit to the new lower/higher segments of the fence. Is there a way to make that happen? I'am trying it for hours now and can't figure it out. :( I guess that there must be some way because vehicles (ships as example) also have blinking lights which go up and down depending on the angle of the vehicle.
