Reshade (Drops only 1-3 fps)


Modded cop strobe lights may cause seizures. You may use Naturalistic Lighting 5.0 with modded strobe lights if you have no history of seizures, but it is recommended to play without them for your safety.


Sometimes the weather will "jump" to the next weather. This is a limitation of the game engine as it is not designed to smoothly transition to the next lighting set and cannot be fixed.

Tunnels become dark when you enter one, especially at night. I still haven't found the source of this issue.


Archive Extractor (WinRAR, preferrably)



If you get the error message:

The node 'ABCD' already contains the 'XYZW' field.

Ignore it and close the error window. It won't cause any game-breaking bug.


If you don't have an archive browser, here's a download link:

If you haven't downloaded NFS-VLTEd, here's the download link:

There will be one file in the archive named "Naturalistic Lighting.nfsms". Extract this file wherever you want.

1. Open NFS World on your VLT-Ed.

2. On NFS-VLTEd, Click File > Import > ModScript and browse for the file you extracted. Select and install.

3. Once it is finished importing, click File > Save on your NFS-VLTEd.

HOWEVER, if you want to make this work with Soapbox Race World, follow these instructions after installing the Lighting Mod.

1. Go to GLOBAL folder within your NFS World > DATA directory.

2. Select and copy the following files: Attributes.bin, Commerce.bin, FE_Attrib.bin.

3. Go back to your NFS:World > DATA directory.

4. Go to MODS > [folder of your preferred server, eg. worldonline/nightriderz/etc.] > GLOBAL folder (Backup the files inside the folder). IF there's no GLOBAL folder inside your server folder, no need to copy the files, you may skip the rest of the process.

5. Paste the files and replace.

6. Right-click on the pasted files and hit properties.

7. Once the Properties window opens, check Read-Only box.

8. Apply.

You may now play the game with the modded lighting.

If your game can handle it, you may install one of the two graphic enhancers included in this archive. Installation instructions are included in each folder.


Adobe Photoshop CS6 for tuning the colors

Microsoft Excel for color calculations

NFS-VltEd v4.6 by nfsu360


Wikipedia for accurate lighting colors for artistic colors

Gran Turismo Sport & Forza Horizon 4 for lighting inspirations

NFS Modding Community

Final Remarks:

You may now post my mods in other sites without my permission. However, kindly credit me for the work, no matter how miniscule this mod is. It helps a lot in maintaining the modding community's sense of camaraderie. Hopefully, with enough time and effort, more talented people will be inspired by the community to join us in modding NFS. More talented people means more mods. More mods means better mod quality and more fun time for all of us. And that talented person could be you.

To all the people who graduated from NFS modding, thank you for your hardwork. To all of you who are now working at game companies, congratulations! I'm really glad your time and skills were of value to your personal life. Your creations inspire us, even to this day.
