This is an extensive visual overhaul for The Elder Scrolls Online, with zero impact to performance.


Extended View with Fixes
  • Enhanced fog with extended view distance
  • Enhanced godrays and volumetric lighting

Lite Edition - Includes above
  • Realistic skies
  • Realistic lightsources
  • Realistic lens and sun flares
  • Reduced character outlines
  • Removed character fake-lighting, and improved rim-lighting
  • Reduced vignette effects for clarity

Full Edition - Includes above
  • Redone color correction including new tonemapping and a revised color palette


The mod may need to be updated with any major update. Be sure to check back.

I recommend setting your gamma to around the middle, and using SSAO instead of HBAO.

There can be a rare single-frame flickering which I have experienced but never had reported.

With the FULL edition, due to how many different areas there are, some locations may not look as good as others.


Navigate to "The Elder Scrolls Online\game\client" folder where you installed ESO. You should be able to find this yourself. 
If you are stuck, run ESO, then open Task Manager and go to the Details tab, find ESO64.exe, right click and select "Open file location"

Choose your options in the downloaded archive, and drag and drop the relevant files into where ESO64.exe is located so that it looks like this:
