As i have stated before this mod is a WIP.

The most edited and best looking weathers are extrasunny, sunny, cloudy, rainy, and lightning.

Foggy, sunnywindy, and extrasunny2 are still works in progress

however i will continue to work on every weather until the mod is 100 percent complete and perfect (OCD SUCKS!)

^^umm its just a timecyc.dat dude i had several people test it out for me as well

however, could you tell me the error message that comes up

lol im really surprised by this because i have never found an error resulting with my mod

Posted on December 30, 2010 9:12PM by nvidia31337
@nvidia31337 I tested your graphic mod and i must say its pretty * good! especially the lightning and raining.

keep up the good work and cant wait till your final release!


@KotsChopShop dude i think something else is wrong with your gta. i tried this mod and it worked perfectly!
Posted on December 30, 2010 9:25PM by roflcopterftw
@KotsChopShop i tested this timecyc.dat on my laptop by downloading of this site and it worked perfectly

and i'll try my best to help!

my apologies Joe, it wasn't your mod at all- guess when I deleted that * El Camino from my added veh.img yesterday, OpenIV corrupted the image on the rebuild - as soon as I get everything back up to where it's supposed to be, I'll def give this a try, it looks promising - again, my bad for jumpn in here like that

I want to but i cant test it right now :(

There are not many differences but does it work with EFLC too??

Looks pretty solid!

Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN8Y4aCjgSk (Made by DKTronics70)

His timecyc.dat needs some fixing, but it has a stunning look.

Maybe you can blend yours with his timecyc.dat :-)

@KotsChopShop don't worry about it! however, i wish you didnt rate it a 1/10 lol but whatever things happen.

@Scroshi112 Well when you do test it and if you like it please come back and rate it a 10/10 b/c it right now has a low rating. And yes the timecyc.dat has been tested on eflc. You must replace the 3 timecyc.dat in the pc/data folder and the pc/data folders in the tbogt and tlad folders.
Posted on December 31, 2010 8:13AM by nvidia31337
@Hypertenzion Thanks! However i really dont like DKTronics70 because i dont like his clouds and his raining weathers are not that great

but still he work is great!

Posted on December 31, 2010 10:20AM by KotsChopShop
@KotsChopShop thanks bro really appreciate it

Posted on December 31, 2010 10:33AM by nvidia31337

Posted on December 31, 2010 11:19AM by JoNnii
@JoNnii yep it works with the newest version:)

also please rate it a 10/10 if you like it!

You should up a simple vid maybe flying to sell it. Even if it was awesome, judging from the screens posted, I wouldn't try it out...takes alot of time to fix it when you're GTA folder gets * :)
Posted on December 31, 2010 11:47PM by 2TimesACharm
It's a timecyc.dat, how hard can it be?

If it takes you a lot of time to backup a 72kb file in pcdata and replace it with this one and your GTA folder gets *, then you're obviously doing something wrong.

@thermite exactly

@2TimesACharm you have no clue what you are talking about because no ones gta got screwed up!
Posted on January 1, 2010 8:52AM by nvidia31337
should Pm Rappo and ask him to delete my previous comments so peeps won't get the wrong impression - again, THIS MOD DID NOT * OFF MY GTA ..I have no clue what actually did, but it wasn't this mod

very very nice work on this 31337! the foggy/drizzle/rain/lightning looks amazing bro - it takes a few minutes to get used to it, but this mod is top notch - the only complaint I would have is the settings, going full contrast adds too much color to everything, everything looks perfect to me @50 all - with the exception of the vehicle colors - other than that, it's freakn beautiful dude

I never said anyone's GTA got screwed up.

I was merely implying many people take the presentation you give them and decide at face value. I didn't even check the download size because I checked the screenshots first. That's all. The screenshots posted for presentation are terrible and judging from Kots screenshots it's awesome.

Posted on January 1, 2010 3:11PM by 2TimesACharm
The results will vary most likely because people use different settings, different gfx addons, resolutions, etc.

Looks pretty nice though imo.
Posted on January 1, 2010 8:56PM by thermite
@2TimesACharm ok dude thanks! i appreciate it

i will post a link of Kotton's pics in the description!

@thermite thanks!
Posted on January 2, 2010 12:53PM by nvidia31337
as thermite mentioned, I personally use a special blend of other visual mods which include my own modifications, but your timecyc definitely puts the icing on the cake bro- job well done, not like it really needs it, but can't wait to see future versions O.O

Posted on January 2, 2010 10:32PM by KotsChopShop
Aww I don't really like icing on my cake hehe...I prefer whipped cream but anyways I think this could make an exception hehehe =D. Great mod nvidia. Just to tell you I'm giving this a try with ENB v0.081 SORA, Realism 1.4 and Visual IV 1.7.1 and just wondering if I might get a good result with that? I have and good job man!

@KotsChopShop thanks bro! i think for this mod i will have two more releases:

beta 2 which will be 100% complete(mid-february)

and the final release which will be 100% complete and i will fix and clean up any issues(April)


I havent tried it with any other graphic mods but this mod looks amazing with the TreesModIV by Eryk03 and also the DKT70's road textures which are both phenomenal!

but definitely tell me how it looks w/ your setup!
Posted on January 3, 2011 3:29PM by nvidia31337
@ nvidia31337

Its great! All the weathers are fine except the "cloudy" cos it looks a little too greenish. But I don't know cos I didn't use the display settings u recommended so I'll give it a try and I think most likely it will be FANTASTIC! However, the weathers that u said is a "WIP" the skies and bloom gets SOOO bright I can't see s**t 5 yards from me. But I understand, you know, its a WIP so I'll give it time =D But I am looking forward to the next release!

P.S. I could'nt take a screenshot cos my clip capture is not working right now but I'll fix it ^^

@Toni_Ryan ok thanks!

@Dr.Shock thanks!
Posted on January 4, 2011 9:14PM by nvidia31337
i really like this mods, balanced on night and day, the reflection seem much better on ENB

any modification on visual settings???

anyway thanks for doing this bro :]
Posted on January 5, 2011 7:43PM by j3smoove
@j3smoove thanks dude

and other modifications are comming in the next version!
Posted on January 5, 2011 8:21PM by nvidia31337
Err nvidia I didn't notice this until when the time reached nightfall. When using all the "sunny" weathers except Extra sunny 2 and Sunny/Windy 2, at night all the reflections turn REALLLLYYY bright and the light that comes from windows and the sky turns bright as well like how I told you it is when I use Sunny/Windy weather. Just thought I'd let you know.
Posted on January 6, 2011 2:50AM by Toni_Ryan
@Toni_Ryan thanks i will fix it in the next version
Posted on January 6, 2011 4:52PM by nvidia31337

"the skies and bloom gets SOOO bright I can't see s**t 5 yards from me."

this is not because of my mod dude this should never happen even in WIP weathers

i think you have files lingering around from other graphic mods that cause this to occur!
Posted on January 6, 2011 7:17PM by nvidia31337

maybe other modified files like custom shaders/timecyclemodifiers make weather transition overbright

also u can reduce/increase bloom/blur/DOF etc on visualsettings :D

Posted on January 7, 2011 12:31AM by j3smoove
Yeah it must be cos I'm using Visual IV 1.7.1 and Realizm 1.4 cos Visual IV changes the skydome, stipple .wtd files and Realism changes shaders and timecyc modifiers.

For anyone who is wondering, the next version of Stunning Graphics IV will be the final version (most likely). This version is going to be miles ahead of the previous release (version 1.1). However, that means it will take some time to complete. I will release the graphics mod in two different version (ENB and without ENB). The version without ENB will be released NO LATER THAN June 1st. The version with ENB will be released shortly after.
Posted on April 22, 2011 6:55PM by nvidia31337
Sorry guys for not releasing an updated version of Stunning Graphics IV:( I have been so busy with final projects and finals. However, once school ends on June 14th, I will be able to continue with the mod:) Sorry again.

Posted on June 3, 2011 3:38PM by nvidia31337
Here is a test version of Stunning Graphics IV Version 2 (which is most likely the final version)

The test is nowhere close to completion by the way. :D

Posted on June 24, 2011 11:58AM by nvidia31337
I just wanted to say that I am no longer going to continue with Stunning Graphics IV because I am going off to college and I am way too busy as of right now to continue with the mod. Thank you DKT70, NaidRaida, j3smoove, fonia5, and boxmonster because you guys have helped me out greatly. By the way, if anyone wants to continue the Stunning Graphics IV project, email me at nvidia31337@gmail.com! I would be happy to hand off what I have to you as long as you know what you are doing!
