Autumn Sunshine mod was released in updated edition. This is really global modification for GTA: San Andreas with unprecedented approach to the quality; is the successor of Endless Summer; modification about beautiful time of year — autumn.
And it was released in spring, yes. Originally Autumn Sunshine was released in December 2011 after Endless Summer. After two years, in 2013, I decided to update all The Seasons mods: earlier was released (little) updated Spring Season mod, during summer and autumn 2013 was released updated Endless Summer mod (base mod, all its update and Full Edition version). Updated edition of Endless Summer turned out really huge and now Autumn Sunshine also got a lot of improvements; work on the updated edition has been done so giant that its even could be called as new version, something like Autumn Sunshine 2.0, but I follow tradition and call mod just updated edition.
I am glad to present you release trailer of the mod.
