Info

If you don't see the cyberpunk2077.exe process in the Process to inject to textbox, please click the Select button to select it manually. This might be the case if you're using the UPlay+ version. Additionally, if you're using the normal UPlay version but you're running the game as Administrator, and the IGCSClient.exe does not, it can't see the cyberpunk2077.exe process. In that case, restart the IGCSClient.exe as Administrator.

Environment Adjustments

The Environment Adjustments tab is the tab where you can adjust various aspects of the game world. It has the following layout:

Miscellaneous options

Time of day
Time of day controls the current world time in a 24 hour clock. You can also change the time of day with the keyboard (see Keybindings) which might be easier than flipping back/forth to the client to get the right sun position.
Game speed
This controls how fast the runs internally; a value of 1.0 is 'normal game speed' and a value of 0.0 is total pause. Use this to create slow-motion effects which help you pause the game at the right moment.

Wetness options

Street wetness factor
This setting makes the streets look wet for the amount you specify.
Puddle size
This setting controls how big the rain puddles are on surfaces.

Information recorded with camera path nodes

When you create a Camera path, each node records the camera location, orientation and field of view. Additionally to that for this game the camera node will also contain the current time of day and gamespeed. So if you want to have different time of day values per node or game speed you can, just set the value you want in the client on the Environment Adjustments tab and create a camera path node.

CyberLit

CyberLit is a custom lighting mod, originally created by Hatti and improved and extended by Otis_Inf. It's part of the photomode mod for Cyberpunk 2077 and allows you to create in-game lights. To get started, open the Cyberlit window by pressing the assigned key, which is by default F2. You can change this in the Keybindings tab

When you've opened the main Cyberlit window with the assigned key, you'll see the window below:

Cyberlit Main

The main CyberLit window

To create a light, please click the Create Light button. This will bring up the light create/edit window as displayed below. Here the light type 'Spotlight' has been chosen. You can choose a different light type at the top.

Cyberlit Create Light

Create / edit light window

When you've specified the desired values for the various parameters, you click the Create button at the bottom. This will immediately place the light in the game world, at the location of the camera, facing the direction of the camera. If you're not satisfied with the location of the light, you can check the checkbox Stick light to camera which will update the location and orientation of the light to that of the camear. Once the light is at the right location, uncheck the checkbox.

Here's an example after creating a pink light from the side:

Cyberlit example

One light from the right

You can create as much lights as you want, however there's one caveat: you can't remove them physically from the game world. You can clear the list of lights in the CyberLit window or delete a light in the window but they're not physically removed from the world. If you want to get rid of a light, you can switch it off with the light's toggle button in the CyberLit window or move it to a position you can't see it.

Important!

It might be after a while, you want to edit a light you created some time ago and the game crashes. This is something that's sadly unavoidable. To avoid crashes, clear the list of lights when you load a save or teleport to another location.

CyberLit documentation

For the Framed website, Moyevka wrote an extensive guide about the specifics of CyberLit and the various settings for the different light types. If you want to know more about what each setting means, this is the guide for you.
