WHAT IS INTERIOR LIGHTING OVERHAUL?

INTERIOR LIGHTING OVERHAUL'S main purpose is to increase the immersion and creepiness of the Fallout world, especially inside the vaults, caves and ruined buildings.

WHAT DOES INTERIOR LIGHTING OVERHAUL DO EXACTLY?

The features of ILO can be broken down to three categories:

LIGHTING ESSENTIALS:

- Lighting values of most all lighting templates and image spaces have been adjusted.
- Changes have been made to every single interior cell in Fallout NV + DLC.
- Addition of lighting fixtures to the appropriate places where they were left out.
- Lighting color changes to both lights and fixtures.

VANILLA LIGHTING BUG FIXES

This includes the removal and/or changes of:

- Poorly placed lights (Not Sure who to blame for this one)
- Invisible lights (lighting in areas that should be dark or have light fixtures)
- Bleeding lights (lighting that is protruding through walls)
- Caves (No really, you cannot see your hand in front of your face in a pitch black cave)
- And lots more!

Think of Interior Lighting Overhaul as the Mission Mojave for lighting!

LIGHTING FEATURES

- Light Switches (Mostly all residential interior cells (houses, hotels, and safe houses))

After 200 years of degradation some things just aren't going to work, so don't expect all light switches to work.

Details:
=============================================

****CRITICAL****
Make sure you have your monitor brightness levels set correctly, ALONG with the in-game settings. Maxing out your LCD's Brightness and Contrast setting is recommended. ILO is developed and tested on an ASUS VH242H LCD with Contrast: 80, Brightness: 100, and Splendid: Standard Mode.

Wrye Bash users: If you are using a Bashed Patch use the import cells option and select "Interior Lighting Overhaul - Core.esm". Interior Lighting Overhaul - Core.esm should have these bash tags: {{BASH:C.Climate,C.Light}}

You might want to consider a Night vision mod (Advanced Recon Thermal Nightvision). Otherwise a ghoul might eat your face off. Also check out Pelinor's Glow Sticks mod!

You should know that we really enjoy weather mods, they make the game much more immersive. We are working very hard to keep ILO compatible with all those popular mods.

=============================================
Frequently Asked Questions:
=============================================

Q: Was ILO designed to be compatible with ENB?
A: ILO was not designed with ENB in mind. However ILO + ENB should work just fine together.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I have giant red exclamation marks right next to doors.
A: The Interior Lighting Overhaul - Core.bsa file is missing. I don't usually include this in updates, make sure NMM isn't uninstalling the base version.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will you support 'x' mod or design the interior lighting for a mod?
A: Yes, if you ask nicely.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will there be a variant of ILO without light switches?
A: Maybe. Eventually.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: The installer says this may make my game unstable.
A: You are either missing a required plugin or the mod you are trying to add ILO support for may not be active in your load order.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can I translate ILO to 'x' language?
A: Yes of course! Please post it here on the Nexus!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I have a problem where the lighting through the windows will not appear.
A: This happens during a weather change in Nevada Skies.When the weather is switching to the next weather in the cycle, there will be no sunlight in interiors (no lighting through windows, no lighting through holes in shacks etc).You could either wait 1 hour using the wait menu, or if you don't want to increase your hardcore needs by waiting, you could fast travel to the location you are already in.For example if you load a save game in Novac, as soon as the game is loaded fast travel to Novac itself.This would instantly switch the weather to the next one.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Some of the interior areas look too dark.
A: I don't have the intention of making buildings pitch black as I see it as unrealistic. At least that is the strategy that I am using now in developing ILO. It wasn't that way when I first started the project, I'm still finding places that I lowered the ambient lighting way too much. Killergrimm and I have fixed most of these areas, however some were made intentionally dark (Caves).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Any chance that we'll ever see an outdoor lighting overhaul from you?
A: I have two exterior mods in development: Nights are Darker - Ultimate Edition and Mojave Street Lights
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Why does ILO take so long to update?
A: Sometimes real life gets in the way.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: The Pip-Boy light is not bright enough.
A: Please check out my Pip-Boy Light Colours mod here on the Nexus.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will you be adding ILO support for Tale of two Wastelands?
A: To an extent yes, however I don't actively use TTW so it might be awhile before it gets reinstalled and updated.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Is there an Interior Lighting Overhaul for Fallout 3?
A: Yes ILO - F3 is under development.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can I merge ILO's files into a single plugin?
A: Yes - FNVPlugin Utility. A guide on how to merge files can be found HERE

=============================================
Install/Uninstall:
=============================================

If you are NOT using FOMM or NMM, start using one of them, I will provide no support for manual install of ILO, I assume you know what you are doing.

Fallout Mod Manager. Get it here
Nexus Mod Manager. Get it here
Mod Organizer. Get it here

****CRITICAL****
I highly recommend that you install ILO with the included .fomod package!
Interior Lighting Overhaul's installer for FOMM or NMM is scripted to install ILO plugins based off your Load Order.
** NOTE: If the installer nags you about game instability for deselecting an option, ignore it.

Fallout Mod Manager Install:

1. Extract the .fomod file from the archive.
2. Start FOMM and click on Package Manager.
3. In the top-right button menu, click on Add FOMod and select the extracted archive file.
4. Interior Lighting Overhaul will now appear in the list. Select it and click Activate.
5. In the installer window, select the options you want, then click Install. If you are prompted to overwrite anything, click Yes to All.**
** NOTE: If any of the required install files are not active in your load order the installer WILL notify you.

Fallout Mod Manager Uninstall:

1. Start FOMM and click on Package Manager.
2. Select Interior Lighting Overhaul in the list and click Uninstall.
