Laptop Mode and Shadows

I turned on laptop mode for my game for the first time today, and I am impressed with how much faster my game runs. However, I wish there was a way to add shadows back outside! It used to give my game so much dimension and I miss it.
Currently, my graphics settings are on medium and have no customisation except for objects = high and laptop mode.
Any help would be appreciated :)

    Laptop mode is actually there to help laptops (which aren't as powerful as Desktop computers) to run more smoothly and does cause certain elements to become inactive due to the strain they put on the laptop's processor.

    Not sure if there is anyway to change this as I don't play on a laptop. You can always check in the BlueBellFlora at Answer HQ and see if she knows.
