This mod essentially recolors the vanilla lighting with an ELFX inspired palette while preserving vanilla lighting strategy. It does not move or add new bulbs. It's highly compatible and lightweight. No flickering bulbs. No pitch black dungeons. This mod preserves the vanilla light sign posting which are meant to help guide you through interiors. 
I've included three versions, with different brightnesses. Currently, 1.15 is recommended, but I can't test it myself since I don't own Oldrim.

This mod solely overwrites vanilla records; Cell, Light, Lighting Template, (Interior) Weather. For this reason, it's technically compatible with any mod that is compatible with Skyrim. However, in order for you to appreciate the changes that this mod makes, it should be loaded after all other mods, unless the mod in question specifically says to load after lighting mods. For example, mods that modify specific lighting, such as torch, magelight, or spell illumination should be loaded after. 
See the modpicker page (SE link) for more details on Luminosity's compatibility with other lighting mods.

RECOMMENDATIONS (some of these mods might be unavailable for Oldrim)

Lighting recommendations, thanks to Erikovna : "Loading this mod before Relighting Skyrim & Darkness - Vanilla Lighting Tweaks gives you an effect that is pretty much identical to earlier RLO versions with none of the fuss."
cottingley added : "Tried this mod with Relighting Skyrim and Darkness, and the effects are absolutely stunning. Can recommend. I sent my toon down to that one underwater place where all the shipwrecks are, and I've rarely seen any place in Skyrim look more mysterious, just because of the lighting. Everything feels more vivid, more athmospheric, and more real."
