Realistic Headlighting

This mod is a rework of headlighting, more realistic.
It supports 5 model of SCS trucks. Kenworth W900, T680, Peterbilt 389, 579 and VOLVO VNL.
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.
- 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.

I installed your mod and had a long playthrough with it active, along side numerous other mods and it ran perfect...

The new projector mask is amazing. Could you make it so there is a xenon package too? In real life the Kenworth T680 has option for xenon. Thanks!

Brilliant mod! Creates realistic lighting, so much better than the vanilla version.

Your mod broke my game, no lights at all after I installed it, and it's the only mod I have, so it's not a priority or conflict with other mods issue...and when I remove it I still have no lighting, in every saved game...not good.
