Please read the following info about CR Enb carefully, especially the Requirements and install section.
For the latest news about future updating and other stuff, please see my sticking post. Also, to check that whether your rig can handle this preset or not, please refer to my sticking post.

So, just uploaded the requested 266 CR Blue Sepiaized. Requirement and installation are the same as all 265 presets. Load order is also the same as 265 and don't forget to check both esp (CR Enb esp and SnowFx esp)
New droplet normal map and modder resources will be available on the same date as my other 266 presets. Let me know if you get any question concerning installing or requirement part and feel free to submit your pictures.

Sorry my friends, delayed for the last time, aye, no jesting. Release date set to 05/05 AM 05:05 GMT. Layout is kinda messy for now, gonna to clean them all up after 05/05 updating.
CR Enb 266, made to be perfect. See you guys at 05/05 AM 05:05 GMT. Love you all.

Alright now, gotto delay the release of 266 presets as I haven't finished them all...(didn't think there are lots of defects to adress till two days ago...)
Anyway, all 266 presets will be available on 04/12.

Make a new sweet droplet normal map for 20 droplet grid and that means the various droplet types in the upcoming 266 presets will be 20X20=400 different types. Can you go for 30 droplet grids (30X30=900), bigeyes? Oh, sure thing and I can even do more, let's see how many droplets types I can make ;)

New droplets normal map will be available with other stuff as modder resources on 04/08.

So I accidentally came up with this interesting stuff, which looked like GI effect..., and the advantage of this effect was that it didn't drop any FPS ;)
All of my presets will feature this effect in the future. This tech also used in the upcoming game, The Witcher 3. Don't forget to check out how this effect looks like in game in the image section.
All of my 266 presets will be available on 2015/04/08.

Got seven New Years holidays, will update this preset probably for the last time. Featuring:
1. Extended raindroplets, let's hit over 200 diversified types ;)
2. Renewal Ver of the CRealistic 265 Final Cut, and CinemaBlue. 
3. Water plugin remakes. 
4. Other versions like RLO//RCRN AE//ELFX Weathers independent special version (?)
Will make them upon requests. Let me know if you wanna other weather mods to compatible with CR Enb.


Introducing CR Enb series full suite with 4 different presets all featuring"All CoT and Vanilla weathers in one esp", and well, pre...presume you guys have already known how to install and what are the essential steps to make an Enb preset work. 

*Important note*:
**All of my presets do not compatible with Remove Exterior Fog and Revamped Exterior Fog.**
**Use MAIN COT mod and it's Expansions for DG, DB. Do not use other COT Weather Patches as the CR ENB already covers these.**
**Use ELFX MOD minus Enhancer.esp ( use Enhancer esp only if you still feel the interior and dungeons look kinda bright, I have already included optional dark interior in CRealistic 265 for those who prefer darkened interior )**


1. PureWater (Essential in Ken version)
2. ELFX 2.0 or ELE (ELE V094 single legendary esp will do)
3. CoT and all CoT patches from jjc71, not the patches from prod (I have tried and added some cot weather types like prod's ,well simply mimics other CoT weathers if you ask, from his patches; so you don't need his patches. )


1. Exclusive dynamic droplet effect in rainy day. (Except Yelo version)
2. All four presets feature in beautiful and best characters rendering.
3. All four presets set in unique styles, hues, and setting separately one by one.

Well, I think I'm gonna to take a break for now, I'm very satisfied with all four of my sweet presets. Leave a comment or any question you get, I will reply when I'm available. And feel free to tweak them to your heart's content if you know how to tweak Enb. A small credit to me would be appreciated ;) 

-Cheers for you all, CR-

[left]Sorry, but I no longer take requests to tweak this preset for darker interiors and nights. The settings I implement in this preset are my own tastes if you don't like them, you can tweak the settings out by yourself to your heart's content by those controllable paraments. I'm going to relax for a while but will still answer questions, so feel free to leave a comment. [/left]Oh well, I'm still working on darker night and interior...but it should take me sometime before releasing darker night and interior edition ;)
