This is all based on Gunmod's Radiance Light System 2.1 and 2.2 made compatible for all expansion packs including stuff packs. I've included the pool shader from 2.2, It should not be used with Seasons if you have useshaders on true. All credit belongs to Gunmod, Previous versions are not needed.

General Changes from 2.2:
>Compatibility for all EP's and SP’s
>Specular highlights for indoors and with usershaders on.
>Fixes to errors found on certain objects and lamps in base game.
>Corrected Dance and Neon lights and color.
>Adjustments to Day, night, Seasons and weather.
>Adjustments to dawn and dusk.
>Adjustments to Archways and Glass doors to make them cast more correctly.
>Adjustments to all light objects and windows.
>Adjustments to Userstartup.cheat
>Increase all light brightness and fallout range.
>Increase Doors and windows fallout range.
