I have been experimenting with timecycle zones lately, and I've discovered quite alot about it, it uses stuff from timecyc.dat like extra colors.
 
The format is simple; it uses boxes with extra color, set time, and a drawdistance value.
The screenshots are experiments and my discoveries could be incorrect. Feel free to share your own discoveries, I just tried to get VC timecycle into a zone, thats all.
 
Format:
 

X1, Y1, Z1, X2, Y2, Z2, unknown, weather ID, brightness/opacity (can be set to -1 to disable), time (-1 disables time color freezing), draw distance (1 = full, 0 = short distance)

fastman92's discovery about color ID:
 

[18:26:10] fastman92: there's a value from 0 to 15 expected
[18:26:28] fastman92: now if we have a value 10 for example:
[18:27:01] fastman92: weather_ID = 21 +     10 / 8   = 22
[18:27:12] fastman92: cycleID =  10 % 8   =  2

The brightness effect set to 1000:

The VC timecyc recreated like this:

1. Grab OpenVice's timecyc.dat and copy the EXTRASUNNY_LA weather and paste it as color modifier 1.

2. Use this test box to see VC's timecyc:

tcyc
-20, -20, -20, 20, 20, 20, 0, 1, 50, -1, 1
end

You can modify any parameter, just remember that changing the -1 value to 1000 would enable the zone to have a locked time color on 10:00 am.

This is pretty neat I've never thought of gta looking so different for the timemcyc though but what would the color modifier 1000? is there a difference between the default -1?

Just leave it at -1.

You forgot about the time modifers and the draw distance ones.

 

All of my findings are based on ingame research and testing for my mod "SOL Underground".
