Natural Lighting and Atmospherics for ENB by Confidence-Man
You only need the .esp for the weathers nothing else.



_____________________
Compatibility
_____________________


- Not compatible with any weather mod besides NLA.

- Compatible with all interior lighting mods.

- Aeon ENB.esp change the water transparency , color , clarity and flow. I would
recommend that you use it without any water mods and just use the Data Folder on main download section that includes a parallax water texture to make the water look like the screenshots.

- Compatible with Pure Water.

- Not Compatible with RWT(remember that you can install the mod and just uncheck the esp if you just want the textures.)




_____________________
Installation
_____________________


1) Extract Aeon - ENB somewhere, the desktop would be a good place.

2) Pick the most suitable option for your pc capabilities and leave that folder open.

3) Download ENBSeries

4) Download ENBHelper

5) Open the .rar file you download from enbdev.com then go to the "WrapperVersion" folder and take the "d3d9.dll" and "enbhost.exe" files and drop them inside the version of Aeon - ENB you choose.

6) Open the "enbhelper.zip" and drag the "enbhelper.dll" to the Aeon ENB/enbseries folder.

7) Copy all the contents from the Aeon ENB and paste them inside your skyrim game folder, not the data folder! Overwrite everything.

8) .......

9) Profit!
