Does what it says. Magelight and Candlelight are now warmer.

Since version 2, there are now two sets of .esp options: orange/tan or pure white, and original size or triple size. Though anyone can use them, the triple-sized "big" versions are meant to go with mods that make Skyrim darker. The normal versions (the ones that don't say "big") are the same size and about the same brightness as the spells were in vanilla Skyrim.

That makes four versions. You only need to download the one you want, and just ignore the other three. I made them separate because otherwise, Skyrim (and probably mod managers) would want to install all four at once.

A special note for people using this with dark lighting mods: you need to make sure this loads AFTER mods like "Bright Lights" or "Realistic Lighting - Full". If you get that backwards then you won't see the warmer lights. If you have that problem, you will need a mod manager or tool like Wrye Bash or BOSS in order to change your load order.

A separate download has edited meshes and textures to try and make the glowing ball of light look warmer. They don't have a very big effect. It's most visible when looking at Candlelight (in third person). But if it bothers you seeing warm light coming from a blueish ball of light, that download may help. Do speak up if you know what it is I'm not seeing.

A readme is included, with installation and uninstallation instructions. (It works just like any other Morrowind, Oblivion, or Skyrim mod.)

In case you're wondering, there's nothing actually wrong with v1. You don't have to upgrade.

I don't like mod installers, so I have no plans to make a special version to work with them. Some people have told me via comments and chat that the Nexus Mod Manager will work with this mod as is. I have not personally tested it.

Suggestions welcome.
