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
- If Day/Night cycle is disabled replaces fog & lighting effect with effect from pre-AD (much more beautiful and no bluish tint!)
- 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 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.

@SingingTurnip Photo Realism is a LUT, not a mod at all. Secondly, you should enable Daylight Classic in Content Manager to see the difference.

I have installed this along with version 4 of the photo realism mod by Sunreaper but I see no change.

Strange. It started to happen when i subscribed to this... Well, i'll investigate more.

@Stealthy No, this mod doesn't modify anything outside of light settings

Is it this mod which creates a clear view area, like a circle, and right outside that everything changes to LOD / props disappear even if the Prop visibilty mod should increase it?

I can't believe the difference. Why oh why oh why in the world would they perma-yellow their game? This looks a thousand times better. Having only started playing after AD, I never even knew how bad it was, until I tried this mod.

@ImExampleFTW Impossible. This mod doesn't save any metadata.

I subscribed to this mod, but can't figure out which of the screenshots (with/w/o the mod) I like better. Lol. The blue sky in the regular version looks nice, but not sure about the comparison of the other parts.
