Please read the detailed description on this page before asking any questions. Thanks.

Naturalésta New Dawn ENB & Reshade offer a high quality in landscapes and great photorealism. Reviving the skyrim landscape in the most real-life style with unique and fully customizable effects. Indicating for those lovers of totally alive and bright exteriors, with great saturation. In addition to terrifyingly dark and realistic interiors.

Including in its effects the mythical cinematographic DOF, high real-time reflections, high resolution in textures, high and adjustable bloom, brightness and contrast modifiable. Counting in addition to numerous shaders that Reshade adds.

Being the ENB in charge of adding great lighting, shadows, among more effects. And Reshade adding and polishing color, depth to the image and special shaders. Available to customize it to suit everyone.

To be seen as shown in the images, the following mods are required and recommended:
Download each one in order and replace them.


This is the most important and mandatory requirement to correspond correctly with the visual that is desired.
First of all and as a first step, download and install:

Climates Of Tamriel - Weather - Lighting - Audio

Install it as you normally would.
After that install:

Climates Of Tamriel - Weather Patch

After you have installed it load after any other Climates of Tamriel plugin which is part of the main mod!
(Although this patch needs version 3.1 of climates of tamriel, it works correctly with the latest version.)

Then we need beautiful clouds and cloudy places. For this we install first:

Vivid Clouds and Fogs - Vanilla and Climates of Tamriel
(I recommend selecting the high-resolution options on all textures.)

Real Clouds
Highly recommended for realistic and completely 3d clouds.

Morning Fogs Refined
Adds a pleasant morning mist over rivers and docks near cities and towns


This is the most required and careful step for realistic lighting. In basic download and install:

Enhanced Lights and FX
It installs all its options, among them it enables only in ''interiors'' the ELFX - Hardcore.
After that uncheck in your loading order the following plugin: ELFX - Weathers.esp

Dynamic Sun Shadows LE
These change the shadows of the game to much better and with more quality in the interiors and exteriors. 


Finally step, download and install this beautiful mod:

Realistic Water Two
The best water mod, responsible for its beauty in lakes and oceans, highly necessary for this ENB.

Watercolor for ENB and Realistic Water Two
ClearWater for ENB and RWT
The best and most realistic retexturizations for RWT.

These mods are not necessarily required but are highly recommended to fully comply with the realism of this ENB.

Distinct Skyrim Landscapes

1. Step

1)Install latest version of ReShade: Instructions: HOW TO INSTALL A RESHADE SKYRIM  (These instructions are for SE, just make sure to install for Skyrim LE instead, selecting this time TESV.exe. Install Direct 3d 9 version, not 10/11/ or 12) (DO NOT install any effect of the ReShade installer, since this ENB Preset already brings its own effects, just skip them).

2)After ReShade is finished, navigate to Skyrim folder and rename d3d9.dll to ReShade_d3d9.dll. 

3)Copy the d3d9.dll, enbhost.exe and enblocal.ini from the "WrapperVersion" folder of ENBSeries v0.459 for TES Skyrim to the Skyrim root directory where TESV.exe is located. (POSTING THE ENBSERIES BINARY FILES ON NEXUS SITES IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED)

4)Copy the enbseries folder, enbseries.ini, reshade-shaders folder, NND ReShades Presets.ini files and ReShade.ini from this preset to the Skyrim root directory, overwrite everything!.

If you have problems with performance (stuttering, jerking, etc...) visit: Enblocal.ini Guide.

2. Step

Turn off antialiasing and anisotropic filtering in game options menu or graphic card drivers. Enb has own antialiasing and anisotropic filterAnd your GPU setting, Ambient Occlusion must be Off.

3. Step

Edit or add the following settings in the SkyrimPrefs.ini located in "(Your Documents folder)\My Games\Skyrim":


Check the enblocal.ini settings are configured as follows:



The following are optional but recommended settings:



I recommend using: BethINI for better configuration.

As you may have seen, this works with ReShade, and uses different Presets that add color and extra effects to the image. There are 4 series of Presets available to use:

Basic Series

Vivid Series

Cinematic Series

Neon Series

To switch between them only open the ReShade GUI/Menu, just press and hold Shift+F2 and select any of the NND Presets. If you want to add more effects to your image there are more than 90 effects available and fully customizable. If you notice that your performance has dropped due to these effects, activate the option ''Performance Mode'' in the ReShade GUI.

Now talking about the ENB itself. To modify the effects added by this ENB Preset, press and hold Shift+Enter. And you will see the menu of settings of the enbseries.ini, on your right side you will have the Shaders window look at the one that says: EFFECT.TXT; open it and modify it to your liking. A clear example of what some of the most notable effects do:

As you can see, this ENB abuses a lot of the resources of a common pc, so it was made only for high-requirement pc. But you can go well adjusting and deactivating effects that minimally will not affect the visual of this Preset:

This ENB Preset was made to work only with Climates Of Tamriel and ELFX mainly. Next to the recommended mods. Meaning that any modification that alters the weathers, lighting, interiors, and more, will not look as desired in the images. I will not make compatibilities with other climate mods such as , NLA, Pure Weather, Purity, RLO, URWL, etc, respect this decision.

My English is not the best since I am not a native of EEUU. But I hope I have been as clear as possible.
