Modder ‘Ganaboy’ has released a pretty cool mod for Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, aiming to improve its lighting system. This is a must-have mod as it can improve the game’s graphics, and we highly recommend downloading it.
Going into more details, this mod adds support for Volumetric Fog. Moreover, it updates the Lighting Model Falloff for all lights to be the more realistic fall off. Additionally, it updates Shading model to use Physically based rendering Metal/Diffuse. As a result of that, metal surfaces can now look better.
It’s also worth noting that the mod updates the Ambient Occlusion Algorithm to use GTAO. Not only that, but Ambient lighting now uses Bent normals to have better color depth.
You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find a 10-minute video from Dark Souls 2 with this mod enabled.
