Realistic Day-Night Cycles By Jeff Richey
V1.1 Version Date: April 12, 2007
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One thing I noticed while playing is that there is no realistic change between day and night, let alone at the proper times. This mod does several things:

-----------Features
*Fixed the day/night cycle- It now starts getting dark at 5pm (1700) and light at 5am
*Darker nights- The nights are now darker
*Moonlight- Moonlight has been added between the hours of 10pm and 4am
*weather Changes- Semi clear nights with stars. No rain or storms at night (this was limit
the games rendering load.) There is still a morning shower and afternoon storm.

----------Works with:
*Patch 10001
*Static Lighting
*Object Dynamic Lighting
*Full Dynamic Lighting

---------Installation Instructions
*Create the following Directory:
C: Program FilesTHQS.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobylgamedataconfigweathers
*Place weather_default.LTX in the above directory (in the weathers folder)
*back out to C: Program FilesTHQS.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl
*open fsgame file with notepad
*Edit the second line (note your 2nd line may look diffferent. Additionaly if you have modified this line already but looks different from how I tell you to change it then the mod probobley will still work.

$game_data$ =true| false| $fs_root$| gamedata
change to:
$game_data$ =false| false| $fs_root$| gamedata
or
$game_data$ =true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata

supposedly its supposed to be $game_data$ =true| false| but all the above seems to work. If you have problems running this mod with another I would try changing this line via trial and error.

*Enjoy!

CHANGELOG
*Added thunderstorm at night
*This version utilizes MrKloroxs weather version as a base with moonlight added by myself. His version has smoother transitions. However I have also darkened the nights further from what he had and also changed some sky boxs.
