Realistic Headlighting

This mod is a rework of headlighting, more realistic.
It supports 8 model of SCS trucks. Kenworth W900, T680, Peterbilt 389, 579, VOLVO VNL, Intnational Lonestar, Mack Anthem and Western Star 49X.
This mod is not change your truck exterior or traffic truck exterior. Only change lighting of your truck when you are driving.

This mod can't be used with other mod to change the color of headlights.
If when you use with other environmental mod or weather mod, please set a priority higher of this mod.

Rework from SCS original
- New mask texture for Low beam. Lighting little longer and little wider.
- Some trucks with projector type low beam, add unique mask texture.(*1)
- Rebalancing the brightness of the lighting. In between the pattern of Low and Hi.
- After game version 1.28, original Low beam adjusted darker. But Hi beam much brighter than Low beam, and it's looks bad balance. MOD adjust both brightness, and get well balance.
- Adjust the lighting color, looks like halogen lamp.
 * As an exception Mack Anthem and Western Star 49X. In the real world, all of these has LED headlights with standard feature. So mod adjust "LED white" color, port from ETS2 mod.
- Adjust the lighting angle. In SCS original Low beam, lighting direction to the too much right and near. So adjust the lighting both of lamp, just front little farther.
- Adjust the reflectors setting, height and distance.
- Expand the lighting range on graphics process. It's provide you more natural depiction and better visibility. but little heavier to processing.

(*1) Kenworth T680, Peterbilt 579, Peterbilt 389 with standard grill and VOLVO VNL.

@Bane Six Echo: Not sure what mod trucks you use, but I switched over to this one:

I use MrOverfloater's K-100 and it works great.

There's one problem with this mod: it makes me not want to drive any trucks that aren't supported! Going from my SCS trucks to mod trucks is painful. I can't see a darn thing!

Love this mod. Would be great if you could add MrOverfloater's K-100-E to the list.

Realistic indeed. Works! perfectly with 1.37x.
No need to always use high-beam at nights like moron anymore.
Can work with Peterbilt 389 v2? <-----truck mod from Viper2.
