Quick background on me and ENB...
I'm the creator of Far Off ENB
My blog page contains many presets for anyone who is interested in looking and trying.

Check out my other ENB presets here on Nexus:
Far Off ENB - Nirn (Pure Weather and ELFX ready)
Far Off ENB - Nirn - For COT and ELFX
Far Off ENB - CGI Series
Far Off ENB - The Pacific Northwest

This version of Claymay ENB is very FPS friendly and should run for almost all players. The only effects which are active and required for this config to appear as my screenshots are Detailed Shadows , Sun Glare , Sun Rays and Depth Of Field. I've tweaked lighting and shadows to create a fake looking SSAO effect. This means you get the look of SSAO without the performance hit. This config is Anti-Aliasing friendly. You may use hardware Anti-Aliasing if you prefer.

For Claymay version 1.5.1 the v0.250 ENB binary is required. Get it here - (You only need the d3d9.dll file)

All past Claymay versions, use this binary -
ENB Binary v0.244(You only need the d3d9.dll file)

Be sure to grab the particle patch file in the optional category in the downloads section of this mod page.

Realistic Nights by Mountain Fisherman.
Face light by tktk1 is highly recommended for character and followers.

I use these files when I want a really good looking Vanilla game...

1. DELETE any leftover, like the EFFECT.TXT file located in skyrim folder if you are coming from a different ENB config.. Disable any other Grapical mod: CoT, RLFX, etc. this config is meant to be used with Vanilla game, nothing more is supported at this time. However, feel free to experiment.

2. Copy all the files to your Skyrim directory (where TESV.exe is located), click yes if asked to overwrite. Don't forget to put the ENB binary file here as well.

3. Edit the next lines inside "SkyrimPrefs.ini" located in "C:Users********DocumentsMy GamesSkyrim" to look like this:


4. Open the enblocal.ini file and change this line VideoMemorySizeMb=2000 to the size of your video card ram.

By default, I have luma sharpen enabled through SweetFX. If you don't care for the luma sharpening, you can either turn it off in game by pressing Scroll Lock. Or you can open the SweetFX Settings file and turn it off by changing the 1 to a 0.

If you find performance is still to heavy, try opening the ENB GUI in game by presssying Shift+Enter and change DetailedShadowQuality to either High, Medium or Low. Don't forget to save and apply the changes.

If you don't care for the default Depth Of Field, I have included some other Depth of Field files. Just copy and paste which ever one you prefer and rename it to enbeffectprepass.fx
The Opethfeldt one is probably the easiest on the eyes and offers the most playability. The next is probably Kyo's or Polo's.

If you want to see a more extreme miniature effect, open enbeffectprepass.fx and change this line
from 0 to 1 or 2.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do the black levels tweak to get the proper look for this ENB. I created a tutorial on how to do this on my blog. Far Off Mods

I prefer using this config when centering the camera behind the character at all times. This is just my preference. If you would like to try this out. Simply open your Skyim.ini file and copy and paste this into the bottom and save.

[Camera] <------Optional for 3rd person centered Camera, and looser turning (so the cam is not so 'fixed' behind the player as it moves), and instant POV switching. To use, remove the Semicolons.
