Flowers Are Red - Light's Retexture Mod

There are so many colors in the rainbow
So many colors in the morning sun
So many colors in the flower and I see every one

It's a mod that injects some more color and daylight into MW2005. It's not as simple as cranking up the saturation in ReShade or something, I tried that before and I didn't love it.

What you get:
  • Greener grass, trees and vegetation, but still some signs of fall
  • A more neutral visual treatment, that's not so darn yellow
  • Darker road textures, looks great dry and when it's raining, especially if you have "HD Reflections"
  • Some signs appear to be lit up, see Burger King and Chop Shop
  • Some real world brands and companies added, not a whole lot, just a few here and there, will be expanded in the future
  • No billboards were changed, that will come in a later update
  • Tire smoke is a little darker when it's dry out, but still white when it's raining
  • Grass and leaf particles are now in color, in vanilla they were strangely desaturated
  • Several world textures were calibrated, mostly color corrected to be more vibrant, they shouldn't look out of place
  • Recolored some traffic and parked vehicles. There were a ton of orange Coupes and blue Cadillacs in Vanilla...
  • Rival portraits in Black List menu during free-roam are now in color

  • NFS-VltEd
  • Mod Created with and calibrated for Xbox 360 Stuff Pack Version 2.2 Beta
  • It'll totally work and look great even without it, but if your pc can handle it, it'll look a lot nicer with Xbox 360 Stuff
  • If you don't have Xbox 360 Stuff, you can just delete the "NextGenGraphics" folder

  • Extract and replace my files in game's root
  • Import the included ModScript (.nfsms) in NFS-VltEd and save
  • Enjoy a more colorful Rockport


Known Issues:
  • There may be one or two broken textures in the game, that look pitch black and fade to pure white as you approach them.
  • I've weeded out the ones I found while playing, but in case there are any left, do let me know.
  • There's a subtle but visible seam between road textures, that look lighter or darker depending on the lighting conditions.
  • Those appear to be a result of the game's masking, and I haven't been able to fix it. If anyone knows how to correct that, do tell.

To dos:
  • I haven't been able to change any world textures that have alpha masks, mainly doors and windows.
  • I would love to be able to change those so that Rockport doesn't have so many broken windows.
  • Whenever I change those textures they appear pitch black in game and fade to pure white as you drive closer.
  • Please let me know if you've dealt with and have solved this issue before.
    Some more adjustments may be on their way. Stay tuned!

Please don't re-upload or alter this mod. I'm all ears for suggestions, but don't get cranky if I don't love them :)

@Jyl Super late, but yeah, the visual changes in this mod go way over what can be accomplished with Extra Options, so the only way to get them is installing them though NFS-VltEd. As for the uninstall option, I'm not really that smart (༎ຶ⌑༎ຶ) so I haven't figured that one out yet, but you can always back up the files pre alteration. You can see which files NFS-VltEd is accessing on the bottom status bar, and I believe the one pertaining visual stuff is "fe_attrib.bin" on the game folder. Thanks for trying!

@LightRock97 Can u Pls add uninstall option for the .nfsms file or Include a Visual Treatment txt file for making Adjustments via Extra Options.

@Scifox That's by design, even the green ones have some fall accents. I also left some fully orange trees in the downtown area. I almost named this mod "Fall is Coming", as in, it's not quite fall yet, but I hate Game of Thrones, so the cheap reference wasn't worth it. But yeah, even in future updates, I'm still gonna leave some yellow and red trees just for variety sake.

Nice mod, one small issue: not all trees are green.

My bad, I appear to have saved the shortcut file incorrectly. Here is the link, I'll update the download too.
