DESCRIPTION:

Enhances Skyrim's climate & weather to a realistic look. It also changes the weather chances in the various regions of Skyrim, as described below.

I was always disappointed at how dark & colorless the weather was in Skyrim, AND in all of the weather mods. I understand that it's supposed to be cold & atmospheric, but that doesn't mean you need to make it extremely dark & gloomy; in my opinion. So I modified the weather myself; making the main-end-goal realism. It turns-out to be a very attractive weather modification, while not going overboard on looks. The weather features some depth of field outside, strength depending on the weather. A lot of the precipitation-weather has fog that fades into the sky just as in real life!, a very unique feature of this mod.


General description of weather chances:
-More cloudy weather types/precipitation down south & in/around mountains. More sun in the northern regions than in the mountains & the south. The Throat of the World is usually foggy or blizzard, with a smaller chance of being clear (The TOTW has it's own sunny weather which resembles the World Map).
I based the weather chances off of the climates of Norway/Subarctic areas.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

-Most of the screenshots are from the 1.3 version! I haven't had time to update them.

-My screenshots do not include other lighting mods, nor do they include FXAA. They also have low graphics options enabled. (my computer sucks, haha)

-It doesn't lower performance whatsoever.

-I am currently working on a new version that may be out soon.

COMPATIBILITY:

-It's not compatible with mods that change the weather or climate. (texture replacements ARE compatible) (ENB should be compatible)

-It IS compatible with Dawngaurd.

-It will soon be compatible with Dragonborn.

......................................................................................................................................
INSTALLATION:

-Simply extract the downloaded file, then drop it into your Skyrim/Data folder, easy no-fuss installation!
