    This time is a pretty big update, introducing the possibility to create, edit and delete the Light Sources from within the app.
    The app is mainly targeted to lights config creators that know what they're doing, but of course everybody can try to modify the lights according to their tastes.
    Be aware that there are parameters that can be really heavy on fps, like RANGE (if too high) and CLUSTER_THRESHOLD (if too low), so try to understand how each parameter works and take a look at the fps statistics and graph that will help you undersstand if you're going in the right direction.

    There are a lot of options - available in a nice UI via Content Manager under settings > apps > BLM Lights - that allow you to personalize the interface and the app's behaviour. I'd like to point out a couple of these that I think are important:

    How many lights sources will be desplayed in each column in both the main window and the selector window

    If checked it doesn't show the names but only the descriptions of the Light Sources for a more compact interface.

    Is the time needed to save changes and reload lights. Play with it to find the right value based on your PC. Test it activating/deactivating lights till you see the lights turno on/off with the switch, if they don't you have to increase the time to allow the app to load them.

    If checked shows the limits of the inut text in the Editor window

    Don't copy/paste values in the input text because the Assetto Corsa controls don't allow it.

    Update lo the latest Lights Shader Patch preview version (https://discord.gg/TNgUPfY) if you already haven't or wait for the next coming stable release. Ilja (aka x4fab) just introduced a new method increase quality with Ambient Occlusion pre-baked shadows. You can switch the status of the AO from within the app.

    Check the video at the top of the page for a quick demo of the app.

    Don't modify the file while opened by the app because changes could be lost.

    Should you ever wanted to offer me a (cold) beer...

    If there is no track configuration, it will be the only FPS meter, but I feel that there is great value for this tool in terms of being able to make various changes in "in game".
