TCYC is a section in the item placement file in San Andreas and GTA IV.

This section applies a weather ID and certain modifiers to a zone. The format of SA:

X1, Y1, Z1, X2, Y2, Z2, farClip extraColor extraColorIntensity falloffDist [unused] lodDistMult

The first six values define the box in which these modifications are used.

extraColor selects one of the timecycle's extra colors.

extraColorIntensity is an interpolation value between the specified extraColor and the current weather (0 means no extraColor).

falloffDist is the size of the region around the box in which to interpolate between the box' and the outside weather (default 100.0).

The second to last value is ignored by the game and can even be omitted between falloffDist and lodDistMult (default 1.0).

lodDistMult is a multiplier for the low LOD draw distance (default 1.0).

The last three values are optional. If they're omitted, the default values are used.
