This mod makes neighborhood terrain day lighting correspond to the object lighting – makes it brighter and way less yellow.
There are 2 main versions of this mod that vary slightly in appearance:
  • soft – based on the original lot day lighting: a subtle yellow tint, lighter shadows;
  • strong – based on the original neighborhood day lighting of objects: no yellow tint, deeper shadows.
And 2 versions corresponding to them, ending with lightingRemedy, for those who use Criquette's Neighborhood Lighting Remedy or any other mod that has it incorporated (like Dreadpirate's Radiance Lighting System 2.5.1 or newer or Maxis Match Lighting Mod). They're adjusted to a light direction used by those mods.
Use only one version at a time.

This mod does not conflict with lighting mods (like Gunmod's Radiance Light System 2.4 or RLS 2.5 by Dreadpirate) that do not change the neighborhood terrain day lightmap texture. I haven't seen a mod that changes it though.
