| ok , got it . what you told me didn't worked , but you sent me in the right direction . here's is what i did . seems quite simple in fact . in sky (atmosphere) for top put a very dark color (0,0,24 for example) , in bottom put the sky color you would like to have . then in visual effects , in additional sky options just put blue on 1 , and all other values set on very low values (see pics below) . then in atmosphere back again , in lights just put the colors common to that kind of weather (see pic)|
according to your liking this may need minor tweaks , but this is globally the direction . thanks

| I have a question about street lamps.|
Is it possible to control the time when they start lighting and stop lighting via Timecyc.dat?
Does anyone know something about that?

| In the lamppost.ide file then in the 2dfx section i found a "corona" and "null" also there is a lot of numbers without any explanations, maybe there is the lights hours working service, but what number is responsible about that?|
Also there is and windows.ide i think this's for the buildings lights hours working service.
I tried all lights values from timecyc, even did the nights like days and there is no results, all lamps start at 19:15 and stop at 6:45, without the windows they start in different times.
I want to do this because when is dark foggy or dark rain, drizzle i want the windows and the lamps to start at midday or at 15:00.

| Light hours are set in WDR\WFT\WDD. All IV street lights are WFT, unfortunatly, you can't edit that. (zmod has wft support, but not proper, only for vehicles). Your best bet is to convert it to WDR* and edit the light settings with GIMS. But you can't turn on lights at 3pm, its either all day or evening\night time.|

| Hi guys, i was thinking about editing my timecyc file to give me more water reflections on the road but do you think i need to change it?|
heres some screens:
drizzle weather at noon: http://img526.images...46/30975885.png
drizzle weather at night: http://img339.images...45/22608770.png
Im trying to get a realistic look but am a bit lost tbh, would you say from those screens that looks good?
What would i need to tweak to add more reflections?

If you was took a time to read the first pages, you'll have the answer without asking.

|Ive read every page so far, doesnt mean i understand it. I tried changing global reflections which works but then my car reflections are too bright.|

Yes, global reflection, but this's for all maps objects, unfortunately you can't tuning separately only car's reflection from the timecyc file.
So there is 4 kinds of reflection in timecyc:
1. Refl. From Water from Atmosphere section - this control the fusion of the water with the sky in the far horizont.
2. Water reflection from OTher section - this is for reflection of water, but not for rain water.
3. Suncolor R,G,B from Other section - for sun haze size and for reflection of the sun on the roads especially on the metalic and windows surfaces.
And Global reflection.

|Right thanks, ive tried changing them all but i cant get the more reflective rain without brightning things up to much. Is there a cure for the brightness? except turn the game brightness down.|

There is several parametres that control the brithness: gamma far; exposure; luminosity and Direct color multiplier.
About brithness of reflection try gamma far.
