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
- Replaces fog & lighting effect with effect from pre-AD (much more beautiful and no bluish tint!) Also allows to customize skybox at daytime.
- 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 the above 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.

Your exposion or sun intensity is low. Use Theme Mixer 2 to pump it up. Add Render it! to check the intensity of lightness (or whatever its called).

sky is dark above a horizontal line when everything is set to classic. particularly when classic fog is applied.

is it compatible with the latest version?

If you click the quick selection to "after dark" - does that set you back to current vanilla everything?

@bonovision thanks man. I'm using Relight and Eyecand, so I think I need disable this mod.

@Strelok This mod has in-game options.

I have this mod since always, but i'm too long without playing it. How I access these functions?

This keeps resetting for me, too. It just started happening today. I haven't added any new mods and none of my mods were updated overnight, so I don't know. But I'm getting rid of this and will see if I can get by with just Render It.

I have unsubbed and resubbed to Theme Mixer 2 several times today, trying to get things back to default. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.

@NewTown90 forget Relight or PostProcess and even Ultimate Eyecandy. Use Render it!

More mods in a stable combination are available in the Airports DLC compatible modlist.

I just realize something, when I activate this mod, I can't go to modify any other graphic setting.
I've try to go postprocess FX, but I can't modify anything, it just doesnt appear on the screen. I can move the option, but not change on the screen.

When I go to relight, everything is weird in the color. What I am doing wrong?
