This my custom INI configuration for Realistic Lighting with customization version 3.4 or if you prefer the previous 3.31

Important: make sure 'Realistic Lighting Patcher' is BELOW 'Realistic Lighting' in the Data Files list in the game's Launcher. This caught me out for a while!

My preferences for this mod, in comparison to default RL are:
Slightly darkened sky overall
Fast eye adapt
Subtle bloom for a cinematic effect
Slight DoF effect overall for a cinematic effect
Increased saturation overall for a more dynamic style
Nights: decreased saturation, increased contrast to make nights darker, increased DoF to make distant landmarks difficult to see
Daytime: less brightness, contrast, saturation. extra sunlight
Dawn/Dusk: extra saturation and redness for a dynamic sunrise/sunset
Interiors/Dungeons: increased skylight to show volume lighting

Realistic Lighting mod with customisation v3.4 or 3.31 (select appropriate INI)

Special Thanks:
