Night Edition Mod

as we seem to be getting night into LFS.

heres a practice mod unfinished for night racing/driving.

Tunnel in the making:

many things has been changed since the upload of this video. the entire mod is darker now.

this is the 0.6R version from 2017.

but you can check it out if you like. ... SNightEditio0.6R.rar?dl=0

Install instructions:
download LFS and install a secondary version.
alternately you can copy the one you already have so you got 2 of the same .
if on same harddrive you should not even worry about unlocking the second LFS.
Download the mod and unpack it to LFS/DATA.
over write everything(thats why a second version is the best way).
if you got normal settings on your monitor you will see lines and whatnot in this versions textures.
i got my monitor setup as follows:
LED lights turned almost down to minimum.
dynamic contrast is rather high or full.
Brigthness on zero or extremely low.(so low you cant tell contoures apart in the image.Forex, road surface on some areas is 2 black colors. those you would need to see as one black file/road.
contrast is for the lightning and reflections ingame. where as brigthness is light you dont want .

fiddle around with it untill you feel its dark enough for you.
in my own version it feels like a creepy night at the cemetary ingulfed in darkness.
thats kinda the feel you like to get with this. if you get contrast edges on cars by doing so. that might be because you got sharpness turned full up on your settings. in my monitor that is set to 35 out of 100, as you wouldnt be able to see clearly at night anyways. this also darkens the image a tiny little bit more.
my normal color settings would be 50 out of 100. (standard coloring). in this mod that setting is now at 85.

to give you an idea about what you need to do with this in order to get THAT night feel.
best suggestion is to try some different settings than you normally would on your monitor.

this is because the night mod is using reversed or inverted thought process,apart from any other mod.
this is the only mod that would need these setting changes.

im not pro. but atleast i try.
this version was started by Trakah123 years ago and most files in this version is the actual original files from those days.
others are simply just darkned,and why this is not finished.
if people want it. i am motivated for making it finished. however im not going to waste my time on it if people dont want it,as it seems we might get some night in LFS.
so honestly im not sure if i want to use time to finish this as i dont know how well LFS night cycles will be and what files will be changed in the updated graphics.

this works with LFS 0.6T / 0.6R .

got ideas? let me know about them below.

added a few screenshots and a video to let you get an idea of how this mod works.
i can add the ambience files if someone wants to have rain while driving at night.(huge thunderstorm too).

Layout from one of the screenies. this is only a test lyt.
but it does give you the feel of something coming towards you while driving. thats sort of what im trying to show you with this lyt.

added a still work in progress sound pack for night driving.
these engine sounds are not made from anything real. they are quite low as sound would travel further during night but also have a sort of damper on the sound itself,somewhat. these sounds was made from tv cam , with a touch of in cockpit help on some sounds. these sounds was mostly made for replays to be watched in a not engine noise enviroment (a cozy night replay watch on the couch)."was the idea".
my sound setting in night edition in main menu:

this is still a work in progress as to my other sounds which im constantly tweaking on.
V.1 can be unpacked and all content goes to LFS/DATA/Engine.
choose the engines ingame by using CTRL+A .

if no replies to this. im going to keep updating desert mod instead. its almost done except some buildings around tracks. in this mod i have changed the "borrowed" files and made new ones. just waiting for graphic updates so i can finish it completely.

its desert out there...

test of new tarmac texture. this is test 1 which i think is too big and blurry. but i think if i double it it could be a very nice texture . the coloring on this, is very good with the new ground textures im also testing.looking promising. this is westhill btw.

added my sound pack v.1 for desert edition.

these sounds are not made from anything real.
these sounds was made to get engines as deep sounding as possible without letting it sound too akward in a unrealistic way. in other words. tried to make non-natural engine sounds sound deep but in a more natural way . they are also made for replays so you get that "wooooosch" feel when a car passes by the camera. not all sounds are done yet. but i made for all cars (in case i forgot to pack some).

pack contains 41 engine sounds ,some is the ones i currently use for this mod.(highest numbers)
and some i thought sounded great as a race engine sound but also made the same sounding sound as a cruise, but with minor changes. so if a engine has C in the name. thats for cruise. R for race .
these are usually colorcoded.
these sounds may clip on some of them. (working on it still).
but i think i got most of them to NOT clip. (some still needs some thoughtful work).
it all goes to LFS/DATA/Engine.
use CTRL+A ingame to choose the sounds.(load button).
if they are too loud for your system. you can turn down engine sound volume in main sound options or in the CTRL+A options = Engine volume (set to one forexample).
these sounds(latest numbers) should be adapted to eachother on ALL cars. meaning you can hear any car next to you no matter what car you are in and what car is next or behind or infront of you.
that was the most annoying about making these make them fit eachothers sound all cars.
but i think i kinda got now. so now im trying to make the actual sounds...thats where these sounds are right now. V.1.

sounds are deep,loud a roarring with these engines. dont have your speakers turned up too much when you try them.(very deep sounds on some). some of these can be used for NASCAR GTR´s i think. i tried to make the GTR´s and also XR cars to sound somewhat like v8´s. not all turned out as planned though. but as its still work in progress,thats what i got so far.

didnt make much in the snow/winter mod but ideas for the upcoming graphics update is high and motivated. found some great snow files to use as textures. kinda looking forward to finish this myself. some day...

added my work in progress engine sound pack for winter Edition.

these sounds are made with lots of gear whines from both out and inside the cars.
to give that feel of being inside a swedish or finnish rally area in snow.
loud pipes that echoes in the dampened sound of snow.
well thats the end goal anyways.
in snow condition sound will change from example summer conditions due to the sound absorbened snow you encounter.
thats what im trying here to make.

My Main menu Sound settings for winter Edition:

all mods will have a different sound feel to them aswell so you never be in doubt which mod youre in.
but thats a all the way in the end results wish,which i am working on behind the curtains aswell.

Autumn mod is being looked at. but only changed 3 files so far.
found some great nasty wet mud for this one to be made later on.

future mod is not a thing i want to do. but its possible to do a psychedelic mod too if people want that.
