Description

Last updated at 20:04, 30 Jul 2016 Uploaded at 12:40, 7 Feb 2014


This is a lighting mod which is focused on casting shadows.
Window silhouettes and tree shadows will be casted on the floor at some interiors.
Taverns and inns will have more unique ambience by adding some objects.
This mod affects almost all room interiors and some dungeons. But most
dungeons are left to vanilla. So some dark dungeons mods will work fine
with this.
Also includes the following bug fixes and a separated weather tweak mod.

Fixes
Fixed the noticable circle shape of the illuminated portions which breaks immersion(like someone is shooting with a spot light).
Flickering Object Fix (Floor rugs/pelts, Fallen leaves etc.)
Object Placement Fix (Fires seeable through the roof, objects sunken into wall, etc.) See also the image section.
Performance Fix (It depends on the cells. By disabling otiose light sources. )
Light Popping Fix (By disabling or merging otiose light sources. )
Shadow Striping Fix

Weather Tweaks
A small plugin to tweak vanilla weathers. If you have favorite weather mod(s) installed, just exclude this, or load this before them to
prioritize them.
Darkened sky at foggy, rainy and snowy night.
Tweaked Fog to avoid noticeable fog border.
Dense rain and snow particles.
Cloud opacity and color.
Directional lighting color.

Just load this after those mods to apply this mod's base lighting modification.
Or set your preffered load order.

Weather Tweaks.esp conflicts with the mods that modify weathers.

ENB ShadowCastersFix must be disabled with this mod.

Some heavy FPS drops are reported in certain places(Blue Palace, Bannered Mare etc).
It is reported that it can be fixed by removing the chandelier meshes from certain mods which improves static meshes.
