Brighter Sunlight (more vibrant planets)

  • description Description

    This mod increases the intensity of sunlight, making all landscapes (and even spacescapes) look more vibrant.
    Snow can be searingly bright at high noon times, desert and beach sand will look more vibrant, planets in space will look more luminous and so on.
    Aside from making sunlight brighter, it also improves the colour of lightshafts to be not so orange, and does away with the dark vignette in the upper corners of the screen.

  • speaker_notes Installation

    Installing Brighter Sunlight:

    1) Make sure that DISABLEMODS.TXT file from PCBANKS folder does not exist. If it exists, delete it or rename it
    2) Create a folder named MODS in Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS (if it already exists, skip this step)
    3) Copy/paste/drag ONE of the included .pak files into the MODS folder

    Remember to delete previous _Brighter_Sunlight.pak if upgrading to darker nights version or Vulkan version!

    This mod is incompatible with other mods that modify GCGRAPHICSGLOBALS.GLOBAL.MBIN and additionally, if you choose darker nights version, GCSKYGLOBALS.GLOBALS.MBIN and GCWATERGLOBALS.GLOBALS.MBIN

  • event_note Changelog

    1.1b) Added Vulkan-compatible versions and versions with darker nights.

    1.1) Lightshafts/godrays are back at their original strength so they are more visible, but still keep the less orange colour. Also reduced sunlight brightness a very little bit.
