A new Red Dead Redemption 2 mod that was shared online last week brings some welcome improvements to the game’s interior lights.

The mod, called LIT, changes light sources and adds or restores interior lights so that all light sources cast shadows, resulting in much better looking interiors. The mod also adds missing support shadows and removes some fake lights from a specific source. However, the mod comes with some issues like flickering shadows in certain areas, broken textures in some Valentine hotel rooms, and more:


  • Light sources are standardized based on the type of lighting (candle, oil, kerosene, electric, etc.)
  • All light sources will cast shadows
  • Try to restore/add some interior lighting and add missing supporting shadows (valentine only for now)
  • Some of the fake lighting (no specific light source) has been removed


  • Due to some bug in the replacement material reflections (PBR) do not work in altered interiors during the day
  • Shadow flickering in some areas due to internal shadow spacing limitations (already in Vanilla), but can be fixed by reducing overall light intensity or exposure (dark night mod)
  • Broken textures in some Valentine hotel rooms
  • Unable to sit on barber chair in Valentine salon (fix by removing salon folder)
  • Potential grizzly bug in Van Horn…

Some comparison screenshots showing the improvements brought by the Red Dead Redemption 2 LIT mod were also shared and can be found below. The mod can be downloaded from Nexus mods.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia. Learn more about one of the best open world games released recently by checking out Alessio’s review:

Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be perfect, but its minor flaws are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly beautiful face. In a sense, they only serve as a reminder that this world is not made for perfection. Every single aspect of the game will put you in the shoes of a criminal roaming America with his gang as they try to evade the law long enough to make the money they need disappear forever. It’s an epic, memorable and compelling story that also takes the open world genre to new heights with a brand new interaction system, a cast of unforgettable characters and plenty of high-quality content to keep you playing for a long time.
