Abu Dhabi's Nightime Qualifications & Shorter Races Than 100% 1.0

No permission to download
This mod allows gamers who perform Qualifications (either full or short) to start any of their Qs (either Q1, Q2, or Q3) sessions at nightime, which is a lot-closer-2-Real-Life sim, as seen in Iceman's Q3 hotlap pic below:


It also accomodates the Single-Player-mode F1 2013 gamers who don't have time to play 100% full day-night transition's races at Yas Marina, and who would like to start their shorter races at nightime (without any day-2-night transition).

Instructions:
1 - Backup your original f12013\tracks\circuits\Abu_Dhabi\tod.dat file.

2 - Download the mod and save it on Hard Drive

3 - Unzip:
ABU_DHABI_NIGHTIME_4_Qs_&_SHORT_RACES.zip file
in:
ABU_DHABI_NIGHTIME_4_Qs_&_SHORT_RACES new folder
(or of any other name of your choice)

In the new folder, there will be 2 unzipped folders:
0RIGINAL 4 P3s & 100% Races
and
MOD 4 NIGHTIME Qs & Shorter races

To get Yas Marina at night from the start of any Q session, or from the start of any race length, copy the tracks folder you will find inside the MOD 4 NIGHTIME Qs & Shorter races folder to your own installation's location of Steam\steamapps\common\f12013 folder.

To get back Yas Marina's original day-2-night transition (the original tod.dat file), copy the tracks folder you will find inside the 0RIGINAL 4 P3s & 100% Races folder to your own installation's location of Steam\steamapps\common\f12013 folder.

Enjoy! :)

Mods: I searched the forum for another mod like this but I have not found one. If there was any previous one like it, I did not find it. So, sorry if I didn't use better tag words: just delete it if it's a duplicate.

Apologies for potential errors in English.
