Need For Speed Most Wanted - Better Light Flares





Description



This mod aims to better Most Wanted's graphics by improving the look of the light flashes and flares frequently seen in-game. The goal was to create a more refined and vibrant look that still fits the game's atmosphere. The color contrast of police lights, headlights, and taillights have been increased, as well as the size and style of some of these effects. On top of this, you can disable headlights entirely for a more "daytime" experience. Also included is the option to remove the white police lights, as seen in the Xbox 360 release of the game. This mod should be fully compatible with all other graphical effects and mods, provided it is installed after them. Feel free to make any changes you desire, and if any issues arise, please contact me!
