Euro Truck Simulator 2 Realistic Lighting/Colors Mod v2.0


YouTube preview

This mod makes the lighting and the colors as realistic as possible, with this mod you can actually feel the sun and sometimes it blinds you while driving.

It is recommended (not necessary) to have one of Grimes weather mod installed.

The preset is turned off/on sometimes during the video to show the difference.


* Better and more realistic lighting and colors.
* Darker Night
* SMAA Anti-Aliasing.
* Added Beautiful Realistic Lens Flare.

V2.0 Changes :

– Added sharpness (I can’t push it more than this or else it’ll provoke disturbing aliasing).
– Lens Flare effect adjusted so that it wont bother you at night time.
– SMAA slightly adjusted (change barely noticeable).

– Install:

>(32bit) – Extract the 4 files into “Euro Truck Simulator 2binwin_x86” folder.

>(64bit) – Extract the 4 files (64bit) into “Euro Truck Simulator 2binwin_x64” folder.

– Uninstall:
Remove the 4 files from “Euro Truck Simulator 2binwin_x86 or 64” folder.

I’m Open for suggestions, have fun !

  7. nerowskyyMonster says:

    i dont have bin file , how to fix it?

    • TheBen says:

      You extract the 4 files inside the same folder as the *.exe file of the game (on the desktop right click on the game’s shortcut –> open file location).

    • Angelo says:

      (any drive):\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Euro Truck Simulator 2\bin\win_x64 or win_86

    fantastic job bro ty so much.. but discovered and undiscovered colors (in map) looks like almost same … can u change this colors?

    • TheBen says:

      Thanks, work is still in progress, there will be improvements in the future.

  10. Ricardo says:

    Boa noite amigo, no meu jogo ele não inicializa contendo os arquivos dentro da pasta bin x64. Ele abre e fecha em seguida o jogo.

  11. LeonardoScania says:

    Hy TheBen…
    Because when I do the pictures on the game and see it on steam , the effect of your mod is gone ?
    P.S. your mod on the game is excellent

    • TheBen says:

      Hi there and thanks, if you want to take a screenshot that includes the mod you need to use the “print screen sys” key, you’ll find the screenshot inside the same folder as “eurotrucks2.exe”.

      don’t forget to run the game as an administrator.

  12. Dawid says:

    Works with IWR6?

  13. wkedoffw says:

    I liked an injector. Thanks!

  14. Chugunovig says:

    Спасибо, хорошая работа! Картинка в игре преобразилась) Один только вопрос: как отключать Reshade, что я не нашел кнопки?

    Thank you, good job! The picture in the game has changed) just One question: how to disable Reshade that I did not find the button?(google translate)

  15. Heady1991 says:

    how i can disable SMAA?

    • TheBen says:

      inside MasterEffect.h find “#define USE_SMAA” and set it to 0.

  16. Diaz says:

    Could you add FXAA support? SMAA does nothing here.

    • TheBen says:

      FXAA is not supported in MasterEffect, but the SMAA can be tweaked for more anti-aliasing.

  17. Diaz says:

    but the SMAA can be tweaked for more anti-aliasing ??

    #define fSMAAThreshold 0.08 //[0.05 to 0.20] Edge detection Threshold. If SMAA misses some edges try lowering this slightly. I prefer between 0.08 and 0.12.
    #define iSMAAMaxSearchSteps 64 //[0 to 98] Determines the radius SMAA will search for aliased edges
    #define iSMAAMaxSearchStepsDiag 20 //[0 to 32] Determines the radius SMAA will search for diagonal aliased edges
    #define iSMAACornerRounding 100 //[0 to 100] Determines the percent of antialiasing to apply to corners. 0 seems to affect fine text the least so it’s the default.
    #define iSMAAEdgeDetectionMode 2 //[1 to 3] 1: Luma edge detection 2: Color edge detection 3: Depth edge detection
    #define bSMAAPredication 0 //[0 or 1] Enables predication which uses BOTH the color and the depth texture for edge detection to more accurately detect edges.
    #define fSMAAPredicationThreshold 0.01 //[0.001 to 0.2] Threshold to be used in the depth buffer.
    #define fSMAAPredicationScale 2.0 //[0.5 to 4.0] How much to scale the global Threshold used for luma or color edge detection when using predication
    #define fSMAAPredicationStrength 0.4 //[0.1 to 1.0] How much to locally decrease the Threshold.
    #define iSMAADebugOutput 0 //[0 to 4] 0: Normal | 1: edgesTex | 2: blendTex | 3: areaTex | 4: searchTex – Only for troubleshooting. Users don’t need to mess with this.

  18. Diaz says:

    What can I change? Thank you

  19. Diaz says:

    It changes nothing !
    Thank you for your prompt response, the color of cool mod !

    • TheBen says:

      You’re welcome.

      the scaling has a role in the aliasing, try setting it to + 200%

  20. Diaz says:

    I am 400% ! GTX 980 Ti Hybrid + I7 4970k…
