After hours? Not sure what that is but I'll try it when I get a chance, thanks.

Trouble with map installation (Forests of San Andreas)
Game crashes several minutes in.
Mod url: https://vi.gta5-mods.com/maps/forests-of-san-andreas-4861-trees-add-on-ymap
Game version: 1.0.1493.0
Script hook V v18.104.22.168
Open IV v3.0 with ASI loader and Open IV.ASI installed
NVR (latest version available)
Visual V 1.0.400
Plus a few added vehicles
I tried 3 different gameconfig.xml:
First 2 configs mentioned in instructions, last one I got from an installation video for the mod.
Tried only installing the trees, also removed mod folder and tried a fresh one, installed just Redux, NVR and the trees plus IVpack (one that was actually recommended in instructions) config.xml, still same issue. I also had to add a line in dlclist.xml that wasn't even mentioned in the provided instructions for the game to actually load in. Found this on a youtube instructional.
WIll have to reinstall everything because after attempting to remove all installed files from FoSD mod, game launches but wont load in
One last thing, maybe there's another tree/ vegetation overhaul mod I should be using instead?
Vehicle paint shifting bug (NVR)
So apparently there has been a known bug with NVR messing with vehicle textures/paint, the problem is, what was known was that this had to do only with replacement vehicles. My issue is with replacement, and vanilla. I have 3 vanilla vehicles that glitch out on me with NVR. I did find one post on here concerning this issue (https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/20547/vehicle-painting-bugs) but no solution was ever found. I honestly don't know how most NVR users would not be experiencing this same issue...
I haven't been able to find anything, but is anyone aware of a solution?
Stacking Redux + NVR issues
When stacking both of these mods, I'm trying to understand what ends up being overwritten in each mod by the other. The way I have things installed currently, NVR is overwriting that brilliant blue Redux sky with the white puffy clouds. I t actually didn't matter what order I installed them in, NVR still overwrites the Redux sky. This is the only thing immediately noticeable as far as one overwriting files from the other.
Is there anyway to control this, like we do in mod organizer with skyrim? I wish I was able to choose which files have priority etc.
RE: How do you get these color tones?
Yea thanks for the response. The first video claims to only be using Natural Vision Remastered, the second, Redux with an unknown ENB. Neither mention using reshade, even though they have to be, and I feel like that's the key to getting the color tones they're achieving. I do wonder though how much the colors are being effected though by the 4k resolution, as I am only running a downsampled 1440p to 1080p.
How do you get these color tones?
I thought my game looked pretty good until I started watching some if the 4k footage of modded GTA 5 with NVR and or Redux mods. These guys are achieving color tones that I simply am unable to pull off.
Here are a couple of the videos I'm referring to...
Redux plus Redux ENB? (my Redux zip had no ENB files included)
I originally had Redux stacked with NVR along with reshade. For me, I discovered after removing, that Redux was making my game to shadowy, dark, to dark at night, and over-saturated. The Redux video dosent have the same over shadowy, over saturated issues as my game.
I currently just run NVR with the included ENB, plus using the NVR reshade preset. This got me closer to the desired color tones, but still pretty far form the mark.
In both videos, both game have cooler and very natural looking color tones. My game, on the other hand, no matter what reshade preset I use, has had a more unnatural warmer color tone, even reddish, maybe orange looking especially in the morning and when the sun starts to set. It especially looks bad at night because everything has a yellowish overcast to it.
Using the latest reshade, even though I'm sure that makes no difference. Have tried all presets from Redux, and the NVR one of course. Those are the only ones I've tried.
