A secondary mod can be installed after Night Shift. It is created by the same installer. The installer detects all mods compatible with night shift and creates a mod that includes all those mods, plus night shift. Midnight Shift will allow users to play with mods on night maps with full online compatibility! Note that Midnight Shift requires the most recent version of every mod currently supported.
