Throughout this game I was bothered by the lighting, be it the fires in Dragonsreach, outside High Hrothgar and many other places that make no light,tons of places where light emits from the center of two fires rather than from each one or just from the middle of the room, occasionally necessary (there are limitations) but the vast majority arefixed, as well as the fires outside that don't light the landscape around it .
This mod aims to fix all that, making all light come straight from a light source and to have all light sources make light.

Originally I was just going to make this fix for myself but the more work I put into it I thought "hey, maybe others would like a fix for these things as well." After 50,000 subscriptions on Steam, 5000+ endorsements here (wow), getting to the point where I feel actually covering all of Skyrim is within reach, and my collaboration with JawZ I can assure you that this has gone far beyond anything I expected!

Thanks to all those who support our efforts and continue to expect the best :)

Probably best to use clean save procedures, we recommend at least being outside when you save before uninstalling.
Go to the Skyrim "Data" folder
Delete any .esp files starting with "Relighting Skyrim"

IF USING JIT, do the following as well;
Go into the "scripts" folder inside of the "Data" folder
Delete "LightingBall" and "LightingBallController" then go into the "source" folder and do the same.
