    Are you going to port this to the Skyrim Special Edition ?
    I'm guessing no, but one can always hope.
    This by far the best lighting/weather mod and I will really miss it when I do my next replay on SSE.

      "This by far the best lighting/weather mod and I will really miss it when I do my next replay on SSE.'

      Couldn't agree more

      I really hope it does get ported over to SSE.

      Agreed. I've used almost every weather mod ever made, and none of them come close to having that special feel RCRN has. It really does have Realistic Colors! I'd LOVE to see a Skyrim SE edition!

      Why not just stick with the superior Legendary Edition?

      Why move to newrim? First thing most want to do is find some weather/lighting mod to replace newrim's vaunted remastered lighting. Does any mod work better on newrim? Does any mod even work as well as it did on firstrim?

    I used to like this mod quite a lot, but....I found out it's not compatible with Real Shelter, which is an essential mod for me, so....I guess I'll have to stop using this

    This is probably the most intrusive installer for a MOD I've ever used. From the offset, I hated that there was a separate exe. There's fomod for a reason. It might not be as intuitive, but it's WAY better than a separate executable. I assumed it would just be a glorified file copier. Nope! Not only did it install RCRN as a full on program on my system (without directly stating it), but it also installed a stupid update checker program. Please, make your mod a mod, and not software for people who don't know how to mod

    I'm going to post here, rather than on RCRN's dedicated website, because I think information should be more available here.

    I installed RCRN. Followed the instructions. Went for the "Legacy Version"

    However, it's a bit confusing, as the installer doesn't really tell you what you should be doing if you are using ENBoost and an SKSE exe. The process of finding the BASIC info on this mod involves bouncing between here and the various forums and pages on RCRN's devoted site, just to get a basic understanding of what compatibility issues to expect. Things like that could be much clearer.

    I've done a LOT of modding to my game, but after a while, I've gotten kind of sick of all the hassles of trying to manage a million different tweaks, and fix every little thing. I was hoping that RCRN might be a nice all-in-one fix for those hassles.

    I loaded up my game, and... I can't tell if it's doing anything. It looked like Vanilla to me. Colours were awful. The eye adaptation was in overdrive, fluctuating every time I turned my head. Plus, the contrast tended to be on the high side.

    It's possible that something didnt' work, and I'm not seeing even RCRN in action at all. How could I even tell for sure? All I know is that with all the different weather/lighting mods I've tried, I haven't seen my game look this ugly in a LONG time. I'm assuming that it didn't install properly... ??

    But after all the fuss of using the external installer (usually I use NMM), and having to uninstall incompatible mods, I just don't have the time or energy to devote to troubleshooting something on this scale. If I use the installer, and I can't see any in-game improvement at all... ugh. Maybe there was an error, but searching for the cause could be a huge waste of time. Ugh.

    The installer is supposed to be user-friendly, but instead it just feels bossy. I'm not entirely sure what it's replacing or what it's doing. Is it mucking with my custom textures?

    Also, the -uninstaller- is buried in the Skyrim main folder, so it's kind of annoying to go digging for that to uninstall.

    Build in a more convenient NMM installer... that would be a good start.

      Sorry you had problems, but the RCRN installer is one of the very best features of the mod. You are having some other problem of which I have no idea. I didn't find installing RCRN difficult at all and I use ENBseries and other mods that have to be taken into account.

      RCRN is too complex, this is why we've an automatic Installer. And it's the best decision we ever made, after years it's still ages ahead the horrible NMM thing.

    Hi, this is a fantastic mod. I was wondering if there was any way to brighten a specific cell/location for a different mod that gets affected by RCRN? Basically i'm using the Uchiha Clan mod and what that does is add a pocket dimension that you can teleport too, unfortunately the way the cell has been set up it's effected by the lighting from this mod and is rendered pitch black. Any good solutions?

    Is there anyone who knows how to fix the magenta boxes that take the place of snowflakes during a snowstorm? The weather that played when I experienced this was the RCN big storm.

      I had to reinstall the mod. I install it early with just Alternate Start to verify that it was installed correctly and use MO to separate mods to ensure no unintentional overwrites.

    Just installed and set up. Running Dyn before I start her up. Will test for a day and be back to donate if all goes well.


    EDIT: Works great! Volumetric Fog is beautiful!
    Only, the rings in the sky that allow day/night cycle transitions are super noticeable. Any way to make them less so?


    Donated.

      Unfortunately the "rings" are an engine limitation, not something we can really fix at our end. However, setting the weather transitions to fast in the Customizer should make them a bit less noticeable, since they mostly show up when the weather "changes".

      You can use reshade's deband shader, which greatly minimizes skyrim's banding issues without noticeable smudging of texture details (when configured properly, because the default setting is too aggressive).

      Can't use reshade together with enb, though. But SKGE can, and for some people is a viable alternative to enb. The other option would be to port that shader over from reshade over to something that enb could inject without crashing... maybe sweetfx 2.0. Maybe it already exists, dunno.

    Hi
    Can you instruct me how to mix RCRN with another weather mod? For my own use (pw). I need your HDR in http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/73937. Is this possible to do?

      It's been done before so it can be done again.

      http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/75346/?

      You could private message the creators of that mod about how they combined Natural Lighting and Atmospherics with Vivid Weathers so you can do the same with RCRN and VW.
