Please explain why you're reporting this file:

This is an enhanced version of my original Thunderstorm Brownout. In other words its darker and more life like except for those * traffic light which i still dont know how to turn off. Again just set weather to lightning and then time at 12:00noon. If this one is too dark then please tell me and i will fix it! If anyone knows how to turn off the traffic lights please tell! Replaces: timecyc.dat

@jpm1. Yes. The only lights it did not effect are the traffic lights! But buildings(xept fo times square billboards) and street lights are all off! And to improve effects i even darkened the night so its not as bright as original brownout making brownout more realistic.

man i didn't test for a long time cause i have to finish my timecyc too , lol . but lights are turned off cause it's day , but at night all lights (buildings and streets ..) are turned on , is that what you mean ? i can't believe you managed to turn off the lights using timecyc only .?? i ask cause i'm making a timecyc with lot of sun and some lights are turned on way too early :/

Traffic lights have nothing to do with the time cycle as far as I'm aware. They're on 24/7.

@jpm1. The lights are hard coded in the game engine! But im aware that you can manipulate the timecyc.dat and change the looks of those hours. This mod simply makes an artificial night time at 12 noon by changing brightness and colors. But game says lights cant be on during daytime so it has the effect of a brownout. Aboutyour timecyc. You can adjust the parameters of certain times to give the impression of dusk and dawn coming earlier or later like sunset at 3pm. its possible. I tested that lights turn off at ~6:05 and turn on at ~18:10 somewhat. But you cant actually turn off the lights thats coded in the game engine itself.

"Extra Sunny2" is way to dark, I can't see anything, except maybe a very faint light off in the distance. Other than that, lightning and raining work quite well.

well, i used this mod before and it was somewhat cool.. too dark though. i was excited to see a new version, but my game stopped working, and it still wont work even when i put back in the original tymcyc.dat.. Help?

Been using this for a while and just noticed something that really ruins it... you cant see any fire during Lightning. during Raining, you can, but raining doesnt look nearly as good.
