I’ve done major modifications to the RED Expert 2 mod (which is no longer developed since 1.3.x patch) so now it properly renders the sky and light flares at night on the latest patches. This mod also adresses the AI lights distance and brightness!
RED is a mod which renders a beautiful sky and cloud formations, also adds vegetation and HD road surfaces. To load the HD textures, add the following line to the config file located on drive C (where your mods are):
uset g_texture_hd_enabled “1″
Is compatible with Promods and TSM map mods.
Recommendation disable color correction setting in the game graphics menu.
