CityLights [Add-on | HPS / LED | OIV / Manual] 1.3


Featuring vast highway lighting expansions and thousands of meticulously placed detail lights across the map, this mod aims to add a much more immersive and vibrant night-time experience.

Whether you prefer the orange colored HPS lights or a more natural LED look, the choice is yours. Both versions of this mod will offer the same amount of map coverage, it just depends on the type of atmosphere you want!

For more illustration, here is an album i put together to highlight as much as possible.

Added lighting areas include:
- Streets, rural roads and highways
- Buildings, parking lots, skate parks, paths, and alleyways
- Houses. Many more people will now leave their porch or garage light on :)
- Six gas stations
- LS Airport pick-up/drop-off entrances
- Richman golf course
- Richman Hotel
- Marina
- Michael's house
- Franklin's house (and neighbors)
- Hundreds of other houses.
- 'Island' community off Palomino Ave.
- Mirror park
- Maze Bank Arena outer surrounding parking lots
- Sisyphus Theater
- Vinewood Bowl
- Mission Row police station
- Premium Deluxe Motorsport
Plus a lot more
