    It's awesome and super easy to install; I have a vid up on my channel but can't post it here. For a 'hack' it looks really good.

    What about other lights found on a track, overhead for spectators, lights in the pits and such.

    I noticed that with lights directly behind, the driver casts no shadow. Who's driving, Dracula?

    Otherwise it looks really very, very good. Will the dark of night mix with the gloom of rain?

    The entire mod is still just an alpha version that is very much a WIP.
    Tajo hillclimb with traffic is pretty awesome at night, lack of correct shadows notwithstanding.

    It's funny, night seems like such a reasonable feature request and then any time I see video of it, or try it, I'm like "this is like day but ugly" and then ignore it.

    Really all I actually want is twilight. No sun, ambient sky illumination. But pitch blackness? Not particularly good looking or interesting to drive.

    Looks really good for very early test.

    x4fab is the real deal.

    Can get most of those boxes checked when you combine this night mod with the good and bad weather suite:

    I'd like it from where Assetto Corsa stops and starts it's time cycle.

    Can someone explain to a poor ignorant like me how this is done? The original AC graphics engine has only 1 light source.. so how is it possible to have more than one? Wizardry! Well x4fab is some kind of wizard. @kunos have you seen this?

    It's just shader tweaks. The lights aren't actually light sources.

    Basically he applied the same system (or at least the idea) behind night lights in rF and other similar titles...finally someone did this!
    I will never understand why Kunos dropped this old working system for nothing...

    Awesome! The first thing I tried was night rally, works like a charm.

    Oh my, The GT1s at Daytona! They look and sound incredible, the night adds even more magic.
