This ASI plugin allows you to reload visualsettings.dat, watertune.xml, clouds.xml, cloudkeyframes.xml, vfxlightningsettings.xml, lensflare_m/f/t.xml, weather.xml and weather timecycles at run-time. My intention is to help developers who make graphic mods. Replacing/editing the file using OpenIV and restarting the game is no longer necessary.
Script Hook V
Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 x64
Simply drop VisualSettingsReloader.asi and the VisualSettingsReloader folder into your Grand Theft Auto V main directory.
Simply drop the supported files you’d like to use into the VisualSettingsReloader folder (timecycle files go into VisualSettingsReloader\timecycle; currently you must have w_extrasunny.xml in the folder for it to work), edit them to your liking and hit F10 (editable in the .ini file) while in-game to reload.
Added support for lensflare_m/f/t.xml (make sure you have all three in the VSReloader folder)
Added support for cloudkeyframes.xml
Fixed crashing when reloading plugins with ScriptHookV
