File Description

Here is a modification that will overhaul the weather system and special fx of GTA San Andreas. This will make night time into a proper night time (no more super bright daylight), chrome and tire system redone for all vehicles, improved reflections and shininess for all vehicles. This modification also includes the sun setting and rising at the correct time, realistic blood effects, a new explosion effect and more (all mentioned in the readme). Please note that it is highly recommended that you back up any files just in case you either do not like this modification or it messes up your computer.

Make a backup of your Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas folder

Extract to your X:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas folder. (Where X is drive SA is installed on)

Allow the files to overwrite.

No "new game" is neccesary. Will work with saved games.



Please do not send me emails saying, it doesnt get that dark, or doesnt get foggy at this time, it should be sunny at this time.
I did a LOT of research before finishing this mod, and spent hours of time just testing everything from the time of day to match real
photos etc.
Critism is welcome, but only if it is an actual flaw or suggestion. There is a limitation to this game engine, and I did what I could with
what I have to work with.


Camera mod for SA. I  HATE  the way San Andreas does replays. All the other cam stuff is fine for me,
but, I can not make any cool videos, because the only way to get a cinematic (Which means like drive by cams, helo-cam)
is to actually record the actions as it happens in THOSE modes. Its almost impossible to be running from the police
in cinematic view. So please, someone make a cam mod for SA for the replays!
