This ENB is designed to make Skyrim look cold, damp and cozy while having as little impact on performance as possible.
Full Support For Climates of Tamriel, Realistic Lighting Overhaul, Pure Weathers, Revamped Exterior Fog & Vanilla Skyrim.
This preset does not require any additional mods and does not include an esp of it's own. It was made with only the tools provided by ENBSeries.

If you see any jaggies, shadow striping or would like some general performance tweaks, scroll down to the recommendations section.


Accurate representation of the Main (No Ambient Occlusion or Indirect Lighting) versions.


=====Installation=====

  • Download ENBseries 0.262.
  • Extract d3d9.dll and enbhost.exe from the Wrapper folder in the ENBSeries archive and place them in Skyrim's main directory.
  • Extract all files from this mod's archive and place them in Skyrim's main directory.
  • Play.

You can hit Shift+Enter at anytime and enable/disable effects from the EFFECTS tab of the GUI.



=====Recommendations=====

Make these tweaks to your SkyrimPrefs.ini. Located in My Documents>My Games>Skyrim.
These will almost always dramatically improve performance, fix shadow striping, grey bars and washed out colors.


-Main: SkyrimPrefs.ini

  • bFloatPointRenderTarget=1               Required for some ENB effects to work.
  • bFXAAEnabled=1                               Softens jagged edges. Used in screenshots. 1 will reduce your fps slightly 1 frame or less.
  • iShadowMapResolution=1024             512 will give more fps but shadows will become blobs. 2048 is ideal if you can afford it.
  • fShadowBiasScale=0.1500                 You can increase this to 0.2 or more if you see shadow stripping.
  • iBlurDeferredShadowMask=1              Set to 8 and disable the DetailedShadow effect to fix the shadows in eye bug and gain a large fps increase.
  • fShadowDistance=2000                      Controls exterior shadow distance. Extremely CPU heavy, 4000 is ideal if you can afford it.
  • iMultiSample=0                                 Don't use this. 2 or higher will have a huge impact on low end systems and break most ENBs.
  • iMaxAnisotropy=0                              Sharpens the textures around the player. Not needed when using this ENB.
  • bTransparencyMultisampling=0          Makes grass, trees and other transparent textures softer at a noticeable fps cost.
  • fInteriorShadowDistance=2000           Same as fShadowDistance but for dungeons, houses, etc.
  • bTreesReceiveShadows=0                  Allows trees to cast shadows. 0 gives a large fps increase.
  • bDrawLandShadows=0                       Allows all forms of terrain to cast shadows. 0 gives a small fps increase.
  • bShadowsOnGrass=1                          Disables grass shadows. 0 gives a huge fps increase but looks horrible at times.



=====Additional Fixes=====

-----Everything still washed out or receiving error messages?-----

Windows account control is blocking enbhost.exe. Complete the following process;

Set bFloatPointRenderTarget=1 in your SkyrimPrefs.ini, save.

Right click on SkyrimPrefs.ini, go to properties and select Read-only in it's attributes. Hit Apply then OK.

Now go to your Skyrim install directory.

Right click on enbhost.exe, go to properties, then click the Compatibility Tab, check the box "Run as Administrator" at the bottom then hit Apply then OK.

Everything should work now.


-----Map full of white fog?-----

Open enbseries.ini

EnableMist=false

You could alternatively use a map fog remover.


-----Do you use Realistic Lighting Overhaul and fires make you lag?-----

Open enbseries.ini after installing GP-ENB.

Set EnableParticleLights=false

Save.


-----Walls disappearing? Holes in the ground? Glowing eyes and other random visual bugs!?-----

The first and most reliable fix for any visual bug is disabling Skyrim's likely ancient version of MSAA.

Open SkyrimLauncher and set AntiAliasing to Off.

If that fails open enblocal.ini and make this change;

EnableOcclusionCulling=false

Save.


=====Vibrancy Users=====


-----Vibrancy too strong, weak or doesn't give you the colors you want?-----

After applying the Vibrancy patch on your version of choice;

Open SweetFX_settings and modify #define Saturation or #define Vibrance.

They both work differently. Saturation (default 0.0) adds flat amounts of color whereas Vibrance (default 0.65) dynamically adds color depending on it's initial intensity.


=====High End Users=====

If your PC has no problems with the enb gradually set effects to true in enbseries.ini or with the ingame gui. See video above.

=====Other Mods=====
