Make sure to use ENB lighting mods, makes the game look almost next-gen at times


If by next-gen you mean "vaseline all over the camera" anyway.

A month after, so around the end of July.

i'm gonna wait for a dlc that adds spears. then i'll buy all the available dlc and do another playthrough, hopefully in what will feel like a fairly different world because of all the changes from the mutliple dlcs


im guessing there will be three dlc expansions, i just hope that spears are next. wonder what the third one would add as weapons? or maybe the third one would let you ride around on a dragon finally

That's only if you use too much bloom. Most of the "good" enb mods don't do that

All the ones I've seen do, including the recommended ones. The day settings look NEVER right. I will admit they have some nice depth of field and they can look cool in dungeons.

Maybe it's another mod, I know some people who had issues using ENB along side SkyRe. Do you have other mods that affect the lighting?

No. But then again, I've seen that people seem to be okay with ENB's changes to the lighting, so I'm probably the weirdo for finding them not worthy, especially considering the performance loss.

May I recommend the Imaginator? It pretty much lets you mess with settings at your preference and it's not an ENB so you can use it with.

Imaginator is a great mod, it's also available for New Vegas, I like it because it only uses effects that are already in the engine and you can tweak them from an in game menu.

Imaginator was actually made for New Vegas first. I'm not really too interested in using it in Skyrim though, I wasted way too much time tweaking with it in F:NV

By the way, this ENB configuration is the first I've found that actually looks good. It's hardly perfect (colors are too saturated in points and it's too contrast-y, though I guess people like that), but the chromatic result is pretty decent. I like Skyrim's desaturated look, but sometimes it feels just a tad too much desaturated.

Eh, nope, not even that ENB manages to satisfy me. I could try tweaking it until I get to a point I'm satisfied, but honestly, it's easier to just go vanilla (and performance is better).

Here give my ENB a try, it's based off of RL ENB from nexus but I tweaked it to run much much faster

Thanks, but I decided to abandon ENB completely.

Good news though, if you're kinda bored with vanilla weather Project Reality for Skyrim is out. I'm not sure if it's realistic but it looks pretty, doesn't murder my eyes, and mostly matches the mood of the original.

I thought about that exact same mod. Down to getting a deed, having a recipe book, and controlling it all from a workbench.

I wonder if they hired that guy.

After a few minutes of facepalming I decided that Hearthfire is fine, social media cattle will lap it up and hopefully Bethesda can put some cash towards doing what they're supposed to be doing, making me a DLC to rival Shivering Isles.
