Hey, thanks for the feedback. I agree that looks better, I think I went the way I did because the original signs are like that. I wonder if it's better to make the frame brighter instead of the sign darker though. I think there still needs to be a mix of the three different colors for variety, to make them easier to tell apart and to match the original design. Shouldn't take more than an hour total to change this, I still have all the layered source files.
Regarding the lampposts I think this is also an issue of staying too true to the original. I simply made them load the original light settings for simplicity. But yeah I think I'll look into making it at least with a slight tint of yellow/orange.
Been busy with work lately but should have some time around christmas. I'll leave this up for discussion for now to see if there are any major protests.
