Additive Shader

Allows to use the soft additive particle shader (used for light effects) for props and vehicle sub meshes. It's also possible to use custom on/off time of day.

Required for assets using the additive shader.

Building, sub building, and sub mesh support is now not recommended, as there are issues with how the game handles them when m_lodMissing = true, which is necessary for the infinite draw distance. Currently they will simply not have an increased/infinite render distance. Use props instead.

Thanks to Simon Royer for creating the ability for custom on/off times.

Use Prop Anarchy Temp Fix For Hubs & Transport update (patch 1.16.1-f2)

it works with the latest update (Financial Districts) but has minor issues. I recommend Prop Anarchy instead for players.

Prop Anarchy has the same functionality.
Afaik Prop Anarchy performs better because it has optimized the original Additive Shader.
As PA's workshop page says, it loads much faster and does not hog system resources during game play.

Does this work with the new Parks and Plazas update? Or is it possible that it will cause issues with my game, since this mod appears to have not been updated since 2018?

@Billy The Dog what mod includes all that? Can you link it

@Billy The Dog. You cannot use assets that require this mod.
Thank you for letting me know :steamhappy:

@TeJava. This mod is useless. It is included in another mod. Same for transprency lod fix, same for decal prop fix. You don't need them at all. Take compatibility report, it will tell you which mods you have to take or not.
