Welcome to Vivid Weathers - Fallout 4 Edition

This is a complete Weather and Climate Overhaul for Fallout 4!
It will add 75 new Weathers with over 110 new cloudtextures to the Fallout 4 World for you to experience.
It also improves the general Image quality by adding new LUT and Imagespaces to the game! 
Key Features:

- 75 New Weathers
- Over110 new cloud textures
- Added 15 more cloud meshes to the game so Fallout4 now handles over 30 Cloud layers!
- New Rain sounds 
- Sound sliders for Rain and Thunder Sounds
- Adds 17 new Thunder sounds!
- enhanced Sunrays
- Immersive Sunsets
- Enhanced Volumetric Fogs for Rainy and Foggy Weathers
- Night brightness depending on the Weather
- many little small details as surprise ;)
- Spell and Perk modifiers to Heavy Fog /Rain / Storm weathers that affects NPC'S to detect you:

Heavy fog & Snow Weathers :
Sneaking visibility decreased by 80%

Heavy Rain and Thunder Weathers
Walking noise decreased by 80% (sneaking visibility stays the same)

Sneaking visibility decreased by 80% , Walking noise decreased by 80%


With Vivid Weathers you can experience following Weather Situations:
12 New Clear Weathers
12 New Cloudy Weathers
3 Fallout Weathers (Snow)
6 Overcast weathers
9 new Radstorm / Rad Rain / Rad Snow weathers 
18 Different Rain Weathers (Lite,Med,Heavy) 
8 Thunder & Rain Weathers (Lite,Med,Heavy)
7 Fog Weathers in different strenghts
1 Surprise Weather for all Silent Hill fans ;) 

- DO NOT use a different Timescale than the vanilla one. Different Timescales always
fuck up the weather system. The FO4 engine is way more picky in that case than all
of the other engines and you will be stuck with Rain or snow for days!

- BE AWARE that the Fallout4 Engine is also even more fuckery when it comes to savegames.
You will certainly destroy your savegame when removing any larger mod and this is a large mod!

-> Vivid Weathers is (obviously) not compatible with any Weather overaul Like Truestorms,
 and other mods that alters Weather / Climate or Region  or Color LUT changes (ECC aso..)
-> Darker nights got a patch available from the Author
-> Far Harbors needs a Compatibility patch wich is available as plugin in the installer

1.install it with your favorite Mod manager and you are good to go
edit fallout4custom.ini: 

Future Plans

- More texture Resolutions
- Refining the nights and night brightness variables
- More weathers! :D
- Adjustable darkness,brightness, saturation,Bloom as soon a MCM menu mod is out for FO4
- anything you come up with

Bugs & Problem that may occur
Heavy Snow weathers can experiece some snow flickering , i assume this is a engine problem.
Snow clips throug Buildings: Yes thats a engine limitation, Beth just enabled clipping of Rain
Purple clouds / particles = Textures are missing! Check your install
Strange broken clouds in the sky = You got a weather that does not support the 30 Layer clouds i introduced.
Most likley from a other mod or hard forced by a script. 

Special Thanks
              Matt - for donating me Far Harbor so i could make a patch!
              mm137 for making the sound sliders for rain and thunder
