you should try doing the following things:

Reinstall CEP with the latest released version

if this doesn't fix it; you may have to update your video card driver

If your video card is nVIDIA: www.nvidia.com
If your video card is ATI: www.ati.com
If your video card is Matrox: www.matrox.com
If your video chipset is SiS: download.sis.com
If your video chipset is S3: www.s3graphics.com
If your video chipset is Intel: support.intel.com

if this doesn't fix it; you may have to brave the dangers of the latest VERY buggy patch from Maxis

I have installed new version of CEP with new "radiance light" option two days ago and get surprised - everything came RED during the change of day-night. After that I tried to figure out what happened and read all comments, FAQ and help connected to CEP package at ModTheSims Forum. It says it is recommended to reinstall CEP and try with custom instalation - "CEP only" (without radiance mod) so it looks like it's the only version that works with me. I don't know why. OK, I am happy to be able to play normally again (without red lightning)  although I have no answer (yet) why it's happening. I would preciate if someone help me with this problemm. The other suggestion on MTS forum was to do the manual instalation that might help with solving problemm of appearing red lightning...I don't know...I am little bit sorry for not being able to use fantastic radiance light in my game but - for now - what I can do?

lalabubus - the radiance light mod doest that. It`s not a problem, it`s a regular feature. This mod makes 4 times of day: night, sunrise, day and sunset. That`s why the light is red - it`s the rising and setting sun.

I`m sure it`s written somewhere on the CEP thread.

Hey Dinki, hm, it might be OK if it appears normally as you said, but, unfortunatelly even the creator of Radiance Light System himself (called GunMod at MTS forum) said he has not clue about it - I mean the reason why it appears. So that means red light in dawn, for instance is not common to everyone as result of CEP+radiance installation. I don't know for you, but for me it is too red. You know everything become completely redish in dawn - it seems to me though as kind of mistake. Some other people comment it as similar as below:

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=101456&c=1

What do you think?

If there is no this bloody red I would be so happy with such marvelous, realistic lightning effect GunMod created.
