ENB adapted from Fallout 3 ENB by Midhras for Skyrim's ENB v0.119 (works fine with ENB V0.123 too)

I won't work on this ENB anymore, see my newest ENB Breeze Of The Nords.

- Colourful and vibrant ENB.
- Deep shadows
- Blue sky with scenic sunsets and sunrises
- Dark blueish nordic night
- Dark caves and interiors
- Performance friendly in its preset with Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field OFF (recommended preset)
- Blueish distant fog during day time to hide the ugly LOD and give a sensation of distance.

Not compatible with Climates of Tamriel and URWL.

- Minor interior light tweaks (less white and bright)

- Reworked skies (night and day), volumetric fog, darker nights (but still a little bit blue), and other minor tweaks.

- Some specular tweaks

- Bluer sky

Reworked the ENB (it's the weekend, eh) :
- More vivid colors
- Deeper shadows
- Better sky

- Clouds during day are less bright
- Depth of Field fixed, more presets to choose (AO off or on, DOF off or on).

- Darker nights !
- Clouds are less white during nights.
- Now Ambient Occlusion is ON by default, a preset with AO OFF is included.

V 1.00
- Initial Realease

Working on a compatibility preset with Climates of Tamriel. But I can't promise anything.

I am open to suggestions.

- Download, extract and copy the ENB v0.119 (or ENB v0.123) files in your Skyrim folder, use wrapper version.
- Do not forget to change bFloatPointRenderTarget=1, bTreesReceiveShadows=1 and bShadowsOnGrass=1 in your Skyrimprefs.ini
- Download, extract and copy this ENB files in your Skyrim folder. Overwrite when asked.

Nvidia users, I highly recommand you to set the Ambiant Occlusion via your nvidia inspector panel and turn it off in the enbseries.ini (or use the enbseries.ini provided in the performance folder).
