Tetrachromatic ENB is a vibrant fantasy preset based on my Megatherium ENB.
I am also slowly adapting Tetrachromatic ENB to support Vivid Weathers by Mangaclub and NLVA by Megaloblast.
The ultimate goal of the preset is for the player to experience different color schemes, skies, lighting and moods all around the map.
There are a little over 80 custom ENB weathers in the standalone version but there will eventually be over 100. 
This is a work in progress and I will update regularly until I'm satisfied.
This is a fantasy preset, anything goes.

Currently, Version 5.0 is limited to the Vanilla lighting verison of the preset. Others will be updated shortly.

Remove all previous ENB, SweetFX, ReShade files etc.

You can use the ENB FXAA SweetFX Manager & Remover Mod.

0-b. Uninstall RLO, ELFX, CoT and or Purity if they are installed.

1. Begin by downloading the latest v0315 binaries or higher from

On the binary page, the download button is at the bottom left corner with a black arrow. 

2. Open the "Wrapper" folder included. Copy & Paste only the d3d9.dll and enbhost into your main Skyrim folder as shown below:

3. Download Tetrachromatic ENB from the files section of my mod page. There are three versions. Only use one version at a time!

If you want to use the Vivid Weathers version, download the main Vivid Weathers mod, but ignore the ENB files.
If you installed those, you need to delete them entirely.
Do not just overwrite, bad things will happen.

Same goes for users who want to install the Tetrachromatic ENB for NLVA version.

Once downloaded, copy & paste only the enbseries folder, enblocal, and enbseries files into your main Skryim folder.
You should now have all 5 necessary files in your game folder as shown below:

Updating Side Note:

Step 3 is also how you update this ENB when I upload newer version as well. Overwrite previous versions entirely.
Do not do this if switching ENBs entirely, that includes between my two versions available!

4. Now is a good time to download the Particle Patch in the optional files section. You can skip this.

This contains patches like JawZ atmosphere mesh, which greatly reduces color banding in the sky. 
It is nexus mod manager compatible for easy installation.
Note: Say NO to all if prompted to overwrite files. 

5. Make the following adjustments in your Skyrim pref inis: (You can find this under Documents/My Games/Skyrim) 
If these values are not there, you can write them in yourself as long as they are under the [Display] section.
It is very important that if you write them in, you spell everything correctly!

MOD ORGANIZER USERS: You need to make these changes in the MO Ini Editor instead!


6. Turn off hardware anti-aliasing & anisotropic filtering. ENB handles both of these.
You can do this in the Skyrim Launcher OR the Skyrim Pref files as well (recommended)
You are better off doing them while you are in the Skyrim Pref inis anyway.

iMultisample=0    Antialiasing (turn this off or you will run into transparency issues)
                                  iMaxAnisotropy=1   Anisotropic Filtering (for best quality you can use 16 but for best performance keep this off)

7. You did it! Just launch the game through your preferred game launcher. I'd love to see some screenshots!

To uninstall, remove the following from your main Skyrim Folder or use that ENB Manager Mod I linked in Step 0.

enbseries folder

Candle Glow
Lorkan's Vision V2
Lanterns of Skyrim
Realistic Water Two by Isoku
Dark Dungeons for ENB by Mindflux
Verdant - A Skyrim Grass Plugin
Ethereal Clouds (I overwrite Vivid Weathers' textures)
True Storms (Not compatible with Vivid Weathers)
DOWNPOUR (Don't use with Vivid Weathers/NLVA)
Wonders of Weather
Lightning During Thunderstorms
Skyrim HD Terrain Parallax Tribute
Vivid Landscapes - All in One
Relighting SkyrimI only use the exteriors module personally.
ELE is great too.

I get asked this a lot so here is my personal and complete mod list
For those of you who will ask, I overwrite Vivid Weather's rain and cloud textures with the ones above.


This preset is compatible with Khajiit Night Eye, Predator Vision, Better Vampires, and Paper World Map.

This preset is technically not "incompatible" with anything but will not look good with unsupported weather or lighting mods.
Based on screenshots, testing and feedback, do NOT use ELFX, RLO, Purity or Climates of Tamriel.
You will experience over-saturation, lighting issues, bad sky gradients, clouds, and more.
None of these mods are needed and you should try the preset as intended first.
