Need For Speed Carbon - Better Light Flares


This mod aims to improve Carbon's graphics by touching up 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. Also included is the option to disable white police lights, as seen in the console releases of the game. This mod is certified to be fully compatible with all other graphical effects and mods, provided it is installed after them.
