Flashlight 3.0 3.0

About This File

THIS MODIFICATION IMPROVES THE FUNCTIONALITY & REALISM OF THE EXISTING GTA V FLASHLIGHT.

I like using my flashlight on patrol - I hate the default flashlight.
It is on par with the flashlight in Luigi's Haunted Mansion. 
For whatever the reason, the beam is restricted to just 10 feet in front of you.
I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm fairly certain that this isn't an accurate representation of the physical properties of light.

Another small gripe I have is directed at the trace effects leaving the flashlight.
They make it seem like it is foggy/smoggy out when in actuality it isn't. 
Even on a Maglight, this beam is minimal and it depends on current weather conditions.


This mod doesn't have variety like my past ones do - one size fits all.

I have spent about 20 hours perfecting this modification, and I am very happy with the results.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

I recommend that you install ECED, as that what this mod was designed around. 
(However, I see no reason that this wont work with other visualsettings.dat files. I simply haven't tried it.)
I recommend lowering your shadow quality if you experience an FPS drop. 
I recommend you try shining the light in tall grass and in the middle of the city to ensure stability. 
 

Understand that this light casts shadows. If you have a lower end GPU or CPU, you may experience an FPS drop.

What's New in Version 3.0

Released

2.1 -    Now includes files with less shadows for both levels of brightness.
            Now includes an optional texture with a realistic design and color

 

3.0 -  COMPLETE overhaul. I am very happy with where this modification ended up.

          Diameter, brightness, and range have all been drastically changed over the last 6 months.

          No longer has brightness levels. One-size-fits-all.

This is great. I never used the default flashlight in V, because it was damn near useless. Two things I would improve though, if possible of course, get rid of the "texture" of the light, and change the color to mimic a LED more (more bluish tint). With LED flashlights you mostly don't have any type of patterns from the reflectors.

Actually makes the flashlight useful. Distance is great, brightness is great for close/medium range. My personal preference would like the brightness at long range a bit more brighter. That is not a huge issue as I have rarely  had a scenario where I need the torch for long distances.

This is really one of those must have mods, imo.  Excellent work.

Great mod that adds a lot of realism. I like doing night patrols out in the country, so this mod is an absolute necessity.
