KNOWN ISSUES (4 April 2021):

GENERAL
Not all locations are not currently supported. These adjustments are a very time-consuming process and as such, special attention to detail is being taken
for each possible scenario. However, this is currently being addressed, and for some locations, their additions will be imminent.

SAPIENZA - World of Tomorrow
Color Correction is not disabled. This is because it is attached to a separate file that cannot be adjusted yet.
Will be fixed as soon as custom LUT textures are supported.

BANGKOK - Club 27 & BERLIN
Some lighting/effects changes do not properly work when indoors, the post processing settings for indoors doesn't seem to share
the file with the outdoors settings. This will continue to be investigated and will be notified about updates in its progress.

HAVEN ISLAND
When triggering the storm, the colors of the level do not properly change. This is caused by the same issue as Sapienza.

---------------------------------------------------

FAQ:
"Why do some locations look washed out?"

Currently, Color Correction can only be enabled or disabled, and not adjusted. Color Correction is responsible for some of the extreme color filtering
on some locations, but it is also responsible for adjusting contrast. Until LUTs can be adjusted/imported separately, disabled color correction may cause
some levels to appear washed out. When the adjustment process becomes possible, this will be promptly addressed.
