Modified Time of Day System for Rapid Transit

Short description: This mod transfers over the DRA time of day system to RT, along with a few of my own modifications.

From experiment to reality, I managed to port over DRA's TOD system to RT. However, some bits of lighting and weather behaviour didn't really match my expectations, so I adjusted the lighting for sunset/sunrise lighting and made it so a lot less light can pass through clouds, eliminating the pesky hard shadows that used to be present even at full cloud strength. Other minor changes include other cloud, shadow and night/moon changes.

Screenshots and videos uploaded here are used with the base game Engine.ini file, for custom ones your experience may vary.
(I have also a 24h timelapse I pretty much recorded on accident if you want)

Known issues
  • Rapid Transit really wasn't built with this kind of lighting in mind, so a lot of station lights can look very weird at night. Only thing that can fix this is if someone goes through all of the route and adjusts every light source and ideally adds a lot more, and that's not gonna be me. :P

Hey all, there's been a bug found where the scenario planner doesn't work with this mod, I'm trying to get a fix out as soon as possible

Found the problem, it was something I'd literally never expect until now but whatever, uploading a new version now.
