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.
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.

Diameter, brightness, and range have all been drastically changed over the last 6 months.
No longer has brightness levels. One-size-fits-all.
