Looking for a mod/xml modification to reduce vehicle lights intensity

Post by Curthbert » Wed Dec 12, 2018 11:09 pm

Guys, I have a problem with tractor lights being too much white and bright on my tractors to the point when I prefer to not to use them... If anyone feels the same way - do you have any fixes for that? I have no problem editing XML files if you let me know where I can do it..

Cheers

In each vehicle's I3D, find <light> tags and look for the "color" value. Most non-brake/turn lights seem to use color .85 .85 1 (blue-white) but I prefer 1 1 1 (white). No lighting mod I know of yet but I want one to automatically cast shadow maps on spot lights.

wait, are you actually editing I3D files? What software to use to edit it? I thought it's in XML files but I see it's not

The i3d files are actually in xml format so you can open them with any text editor or Giants Editor.

By the way, here is a little comparison with FS17

FS17 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1589424087
FS19 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1589423958

It's maybe not so visible on the pictures but it's killing my eyes on my monitor with high contrast

If you can recommend me some values to get close to FS17 it would be great

color="1 1 1" = white
color=".75 .75 .75" = light gray (3/4 white)
color=".5 .5 .5" = gray (half-white)
color=".25 .25 .25" = dark gray (1/4 white)
color="0 0 0" = black/off

After little tweaking these are the results:

Original: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1589533545
Modified: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1589533567

Thanks for help Eep:)

The difference on my 27" monitor is huge actually. I admit that pictures don't tell so much
Main difference is that objects are not so brightly white but they keep their original color now. Same for bushes etc
