Does this sort of looks like night?

    I know this game doesn't support night or more light sources than 1 light source, hence the more lighter appearance. and obviously else you won't be able to see the cars driving around. And it's something I am working on for some little while now for a new year's special video.

    Well its dark as in night time, AC supports night time it just doesn't support the lights you actually need to drive in it which is the key issue. :)

    Didn't some dude do some ridiculously intense game engine fiddling to harness the power of the sun to make pseudo-headlights that kinda worked? I'm pretty sure I'm not making this up, I vaguely remember watching an F40 driving in the night with its lights turned on in AC a year or so ago. xD

    EDIT - Found it, around the 11 minute mark for the driving part

    Personally I think trying to achieve "night" without dynamic lighting works best on mod tracks built to look like they are illuminated with floodlights. Without headlights it's just way too dark to actually race otherwise.

  5. It's just reversed shadows.He has a special weather preset and sets the track objects to not cast shadows so that it doesn't look strange....the headlights are just an invisible 3d animation that casts a beam-shaped shadow.
