Naturalistic Lighting 7.0

Season-based Lighting Presets
This is the final reincarnation of Naturalistic Lighting 6.0. Instead of focusing on more colors, this one focuses more on groundedness. Racing in NFS World was supposed to be gritty yet fun, and this time I aim to adhere to the game's atmosphere.
Changes compared to NL6.0:
Added better lighting effect on cars
Removed dependence on ReShade for color adjustment
For better graphics and performance, I recommend changing the following settings within the UserSettings.xml. It can be found here:
C:\Users\"InsertYourUsername"\AppData\Roaming\Need for Speed World\Settings
And these are the recommended settings:
> Visual Treatment ON
> Overbright OFF
> Post-Processing OFF
> Motion Blur OFF (Optional)
Modded cop strobe lights may cause seizures. You may install modded strobe lights if you have no history of seizures, but it is recommended to play without them for your safety.
Sometimes the weather will "jump" to the next weather. This is a limitation of the game engine as it is not designed to smoothly transition to the next lighting set and cannot be fixed.
Tunnels become dark when you enter one at night. I still haven't found the source of this issue.

NFS Modding Community
You may now post my mods in other sites without my permission. However, kindly credit me for the work, no matter how miniscule this mod is. It helps a lot in maintaining the modding community's sense of camaraderie. Hopefully, with enough time and effort, more talented people will be inspired by the community to join us in modding NFS. More talented people means more mods. More mods means better mod quality and more fun time for all of us. And that talented person could be you.
To all the people who graduated from NFS modding, thank you for your hardwork. To all of you who are now working at game companies, congratulations! I'm really glad your time and skills were of value to your personal life. Your creations inspire us, even to this day.
