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.

Yes. Every time I load my game I have to put all settings to ON/OFF and then set it as I want. So for examle I use two settings ON. I enter the game and I go into this mod options. I set everything ON/OFF and then I put these two settings back on. :)

Does anyone else have an issue where every time I open a save game I have to deselect, then reselect the Classic sunlight color and intensity settings? If I don't, the color is off.

@guhcampos After resubscribing it doesn't do it anymore. I must have done something somehow to break it earlier.

@Radamir I've never really noticed that but the Ultimate Eyecandy mod allows you to fine tune the sun trajectory, you might want to give it a try!

I really like this, but for some reason it causes the sun to rise in the southwest and set in the northeast (on realistic boreal theme) even with the sun position option disabled. Unticking this mod in the content manager is the only thing that fixes this.

No @Windsor XIV you just click the subscribe button on here and it will load into your game next time you restart the game or your PC.

Im new to everything here. How can I download this mod? I mean do I have to copy paste anything to a location?

@ExpiredCardBoard. I think you can forbid day/night cycle in the game setting and also you can use mod called ultimate eye candy which allows you to slow down "day simulation" or completely pause it at your desired time for example at 8:00 am.

Thank you for this mod it helps me try to build during night time. I started a new game and couldn't see anything in the dark. I'd have to wait for it to be daylight so I can progress. Makes it much easier to see.
