    this load order seems to be different than the one suggested on the WAO mod page, if you use WAO with Vividian. I'm a little confused on what to do.

    Hi, sorry just saw you posted here, Nexus seems not to inform me about it .
    Pure weather is a replacement for all Vanilla weathers. You can make it compatible with Climates of tamriel with our diverse weathers

    Sorry for asking, but right now, I'm not really informed about weather.
    What does Pure Weather do so it is compatible with everything else ? I thought of it something like COT + COT WeatherPatch.

    Thanks for the load order example. I will propably use the first or the third in the future.
