Vanilla+ by P A I N, osdever

Category: Textures | Game: Need for Speed: Most Wanted


Vanilla+ is best enjoyed with Plak Graphics Vanilla Edition - make your game look better today!
Vanilla+ includes NFS Attrib Loader for configuration.

Vanilla+ improves the game's lighting and light flare textures to make it look more realistic:
  • Revamped timecycle with a night-time preset and improved overcast lighting
  • More modern-looking Visual Treatment filter settings
  • All light flare textures replaced by high-resolution versions
  • Streetlights now have pseudo-volumetric effects below them (Plak Graphics only)

You can now modify Vanilla+ visual settings in scripts at the 'AttribMods/VanillaPlus' folder or in Plak Graphics Vanilla Edition's lighting editor!

UPDATE 2023-03-27 (1.1): Fixed fog and sky brightness values
UPDATE 2023-03-31 (1.1.1): Added more empty textures for fully disable original game sun
UPDATE 2023-03-31 (1.1.2): Replaced headlight and coplights flares to NFS:Undercover type
UPDATE 2023-03-31 (1.1.3): Fixed some mistakes

if all the streetlights are super bright/big, delete "core settings" file in Need for Speed Most Wanted black Edition\AttribMods\VanillaPlus

I completely reinstalled my game and mods including plak. Everything was working as it should and then installed this again (newest version) with the same issue. So I tried your 2nd oldest version and the problem is no longer there. Only drawback is I'm on an older version of your mod now. But I am enjoying it quite a bit, thanks!

Not sure what I did wrong but now all the streetlights are super bright/big and I cant see much at all.
