About this mod

A weather overhaul with randomised cloud textures, weather changes in interiors, seasonal weather, latitude/season changes etc.

Permissions and credits
Watch the skies, outlander.
MWSE lua-based weather overhaul

  • new game behaviour - weather now changes inside!
  • randomises cloud texture on each weather transition - no more exactly same clouds each time
  • more dynamic weather - shortens and randomises time between weather changes
  • randomises particle amount and clouds speed - works best with matching variable rain sounds from AURA and clouds from Vapourmist
  • seasonal weather chances
  • dynamic daylight hours (thanks sveng!)
  • includes a texture pack (not compatible with skies.iv mesh out of the box, although you can use mixed skies.iv textures easily)
  • includes 16 raindrop meshes using 5 textures for a more varied rainy weather experience (these will moreover match your fog colours, so use with your preferred Weather Adjuster preset)
  • includes 10 unique snow meshes
  • includes an optional Weather Adjuster config file, inspired by Gilboron's preset based on the old Red Skies mod and concept art
  • two weather adjuster presets ('modern' is recommended to use with atmospheric scattering and Dexter's sky shader)

To install your own textures, just drop them in the appropriate weather folders in Textures/tew/Watch the Skies. You can use WtS lua framework with sky mesh replacers, such as Skies IV.

If you're using Weather Adjuster, please disable (turn to ON) WA cloud setting to ensure full compatibility with Watch the Skies. Thanks Hrnchand!
