ETS2 - Natura Lux - Enhanced Graphics and Weather Mod (1.36.x)

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Mods

"NaturaLux" is a weather and graphics mod, bringing the visuals of the game engine to a new level.
Even with several dated features one can make this game look beautiful almost all day - every day. So I (GerScaniaTrucker) tried to achieve that and by far had some success. Certainly I am still not happy about the result and want to improve my work, as well as I am waiting for SCS to update and upgrade their graphics engine to keep up with the new technologies to make games even more realistic.

SIMPLIFIED FEATURES (as of this adapted version for 1.36 (1.0.0ob-220719_136)):
*Compatibility with 1.36.xs.
*Smaller improvements in size and textures.
*Updated Add-Ons and added the "Project Japan" compatibility add-on.

In order to work properly with other mods, "NaturaLux" needs to have the highest priority in your mod list.
Exception: Mods altering traffic/AI behaviour - These should stay above the main mod and its add-ons.
Some modifications require an additional add-on by us (e.g. "Sound Fixes Pack"), which should have a higher priority, than the main mod and any other add-ons from "NaturaLux".
