General answer to all comments
- I've already fixed the flickering shadows issue. The fix will come with the 2.5 update.
- I'm working on darkness levels of nights and new nighttime sky textures(Considering your suggestions).
- I'm working on general graphics adjustments(brightness, contrast etc.).
- The 2.5 update will come when ETS 2 & ATS's 1.35 update released. :thumbalift:

And, thanks for all the comments. I'm sorry, sometimes I can not answer to comments one by one but you can be sure I've read all of them.

Not sure if you know about the ETS Project Next-Gen Graphic Mod byDamianSVW. It similar to your graphics mod however, there is no flickering shadow problems. Maybe you could talk to him and see if you can add something to your mod to fix the problem.

Also night time is extremely dark and need to use full beam all the time.

Is it me or do the lights shine off at an angle to where the truck is facing? What I mean is the lights on instead of the main beam shining in front of the truck, they shine off to the right.

Awesome mod and I love it! Looking forward to next version and hoping it fixes stuttering shadows when the weather changes and strange day-night changes.

Is this mod compatible with "Filmic Lighting" ( )?

Something really bugs me with this mod. I like very much the sky but when night come, why the stars are appearing through the clouds and why they are brighter than the default game ? They don't looks real and just because of that, I can't use this nice mod at least it's corrected.

it all comes down to your settings, VicFirth.
I use it in both games and I've noticed a difference, even with the settings at medium.
Check out the Tips Section on this page to help you.
