Enhanced Wasteland is a ReShade Framework/ENB mod.
The goal of this mod was to slightly add more vibrance to the wasteland environment in Fallout 4 and make it appear less washed out.
There is also usage of other settings that I think make the game look better.
You can check out the screenshots to see how it will look in-game.
This mod was last tested with the Nuka World DLC update and is confirmed working!

Jan 22, 2017 UPDATE:
I am releasing a new beta version of Enhanced Wasteland, which you can download here:

Please leave me feedback on this version before I push it as an official download. Report any "bugs" you encounter while playing with it.This way I can go back and update the mod to fix anything that users dislike.

Version 5.0 Changelog:

  • Various changes made to the overall colors and lighting.
  • Updated ENBSeries which fixes Ambient Occlusion performance issues.
  • Fixed red text color and overall hue.
  • Added a separate No DoF version. Normal version comes with ENB DoF enabled by default and an optional setting for ReShade DoF.
  • Fixed shadow quality.
  • Completely removed Ambient Lighting.


** Read the help section if you have issues with this mod **

 For new users:
Place ALL the files and folders within the Enhanced Wasteland folder to your root Fallout 4 game directory.
This should be located at:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout 4"

Download the ENB .dll files from here: http://goo.gl/Yp1QuQ
Mirror (If above link is broken): https://goo.gl/POr7vV

 Place both of the .dll files into your root Fallout 4 game directory.

You can also download the .dll files from the official ENB site: http://enbdev.com/mod_fallout4_v0307.htm

Here is how everything should look once you're done: https://i.imgur.com/doK55OA.png

Run the game normally through the launcher and it should load with your new ReShade/ENB graphics mod.

By default, this preset comes with the ENB Depth of Field effect turned on.
 If you want to use the ReShade Depth of Field instead, go to the Default folder located in "ReShade\Presets\Default" and open up the 'Shaders_by_MartyMcFly.cfg' file. Next, scroll down to Line 67.
Where it says "#define USE_DEPTHOFFIELD 0 //[DOF] //-" Change the 0 to a 1 and Save the file.
 This will TURN ON Depth of Field.

* ReShade Depth of Field will not work if you are wearing Power Armor. In order to experience Depth of Field while wearing Power Armor, you will need to disable the  HUD through the Fallout 4 console. The console command to remove the HUD is 'tm' aka Toggle Menus.

You can toggle the ReShade DoF on and off by pressing the F3 key.

Want a 10 FPS increase with this preset? Disable Ambient Lighting. Go to the Default folder located in "ReShade\Presets\Default", open up Shaders_by_Ganossa.cfg and scroll down to Line 48. Where it says "#define USE_AMBIENT_LIGHT 1 //[AmbientLight] //-" Change the 1 to a 0 and Save the file.
 This will disable the Ambient Lighting effect but increase the framerate.

You can also disable SSAO which can be heavy on your framerate. To do this, open up 'enbseries.ini' and look under the [EFFECT] section. Next, change the 'EnableSSAO=true' variable to 'EnableSSAO=false' and Save the file.
 This will disable the Screen Space Ambient Occlusion effect but increase the framerate.

  For returning users (v3.0 and below):

Follow the same instructions for new users but uninstall the old preset first.
Go to your Fallout 4 game directory

Delete the following file(s):
- dxgi.dll
- ReShade.fx
- Sweet.fx

Delete the following folder(s):
- SweetFX
- ReShade

Now you can do a fresh install for Enhanced Wasteland 5.0

            • Fallout 4 + ReShade Troubleshooting thread: http://reshade.me/forum/troubleshooting/1403-fallout-4-reshade-crash

If you are experiencing a crash to desktop, then go to .../My Documents/My Games/Fallout 4/ and open up            Fallout4Prefs.ini
and under the [Launcher] section, add a new line that says bEnableFileSelection=1

          •  You can try renaming dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll if your game is crashing (ONLY APPLIES TO v1.0 - v3.0)

         • Make sure that FRAPS, Dxtory and other third-party programs that may interfere with this preset are not running in the background. You can only run FRAPS after the game is launched.

         • The preset can be toggled on and off with the Scroll Lock key.

         • Press 'Print Screen' to take in-game screenshots. All screenshots will be saved to the Fallout 4 game directory.

         • You do not need to turn off the in-game Anti-Aliasing in order to use this preset.

         • Version 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 are still available for download if you do not like the newest version.

For those looking to configure the ENB settings, you will need to open up enblocal.ini and
replace the [INPUT] section with the variables below.  This will let you press Shift+Enter while in-game and open up the ENBSeries gui, allowing for easy editing.
