    This is not a wet mod (search for Alberto Fracasso's wet mod for Kunos tracks to get it), it's meant to enhance the visual experience for Alberto's mod (but it works with not-wet tracks too).

    Also, I downloaded a lot of mods (apps, tracks, cars) and I thought it was about time I gave something back to the AC community.

    I'd like to thank Ilja (x4fab) that with his wonderful work with Content Manager first and the...
