About this mod

A zero performance loss weather and lighting overhaul. Removes many blurry effects for a cleaner, crisper image. Improves the look of the vanilla game without overdoing it or straying away from the original style.

There are a few different versions so you can choose what you like for bloom, DoF, and color saturation.

If you like this mod and would like to support my hopes and dreams, check out the subreddit for the game I am a part of here.
It's a 2D skill based fighting game and all feedback is appreciated.



Note: This mod now comes with an ini file that tweaks settings to godrays and character lighting. This ini is not required in any way, so feel free to remove/alter it.



The 3 main goals of this mod are as follows:

1: Remove many annoying or distracting effects

2: Make it easier to see

3: Just generally improve the look of the game



Zero performance loss (If included ini settings conflict with your current ini settings then performance may change. Just delete or edit the included ini file if this happens)



Requires all DLC


XBOX LINK

PLAYSTATION LINK



Blur

It's gone. Bad DoF, distant blur, temporary blur, blur in VATS. All of it is gone.
*Optional DoF version keeps only the higher quality DoF, still removes the rest.


Fog
It's smooth now, and there is generally less of it. That distracting line of fog that moves with the camera is gone too.


Shadows

Shadows are darker and pop a bit more now. You can still see perfectly fine to play, though.


Volumetric Lights

All weathers now take advantage of volumetric lighting. Night time, rainy days, and overcast weathers benefit from this greatly. In some ways this makes the game less clear, but it just looks so good.


Regular Lights
Lights were adjusted to not be so harsh. Includes the workshop lights from the Vault-Tec DLC - but they actually light up your vault now!

 

Water

Water LOD looks better and some broken water reflections were fixed.





Helpful INI tweak for better shadows


In your Fallout4Prefs.ini find and edit the following to make shadows pop in smoother with no performance loss:

[Display]
fBlendSplitDirShadow=192.0000





Compatibility and Load Order:

This mod edits a ton of different things, including weathers, lights, and interior cells.
Load this mod EARLY in your load order and let your favorite mods overwrite it.

The exception to this is if you are trying out the True Storms version. The True Storms version of Clarity needs to be loaded AFTER every single True Storms plugin, but before anything else.
*Updates for the True Storms versions have stopped as I am making a completely different mod, specifically for True Storms. I'll put a link here when it's done.
