Vividian / (optional) ELE+ELFX Install Guide
Highly recommended alongside Vividian ENB MAIN Install.(see seperate guide for Main Install) Uses ELE Interior and ELFX Interior (Exterior optional, but recommended!) for better Imagespaces and Lighting.
The preset tries to hit a balance between light and dark for the best atomsphere.
So that the usage of a Torch/Lantern ist not always needed but neccesary in very dark regions, which enhances gameplay in my opinion.
If you want to try out Lanterns i HIGHLY recommend Wearable Lanterns by Chesko:Click here
Set the radius to 400 (lowest value in SKYUI Menu) for best immersion.

Install ELFX and it's optional Files you need (DLCs and at last SMIM). NO Enhancer
