    Hey guys! I just wanted to make a quick note that LoD has kindly entrusted me with the maintenance of this mod, so I will be doing my best to keep it up to date and answer any questions that you might have :)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ***As of version 4.0 a few major changes have been made to integrate Water's Edge Fix seamlessly into more complicated weather setups, which is probably guaranteed to cause a bit of confusion for some, so I would like to provide a detailed explanation to make things a bit easier. Basically, as stated in the description, Water's Edge Fix functions by editing the fog levels in all weathers, which will conflict with any and all other mods that also edit weathers. That being the case, there are some extra steps you will need to take if you want to use this alongside something like a True Storms merged setup with another major weather overhaul, so I will go over that here.

    In essence, if you're looking to use Water's Edge Fix there are four main situations that you might be in depending on which mods you have/don't have loaded, so I will cover them in order from least to most confusing to set up:


    1. You have no major weather overhauls loaded. Simply download the vanilla version of this fix and you're good to go!

    2. You only have a major weather overhaul loaded, not including True Storms (covered in the next section). In this case, your load order should look like this:
    -MyFavoriteWeatherMod.esp
    -MyFavoriteWeatherMod WaterFix.esp**There are versions provided on this page for 10 different weather overhauls.
    -Wet&Cold - WaterFix - Addon.esp **Also provided on this page. Only if you are also using Wet&Cold, but otherwise completely optional.

    3. You have ONLY True Storms loaded on its own, or ONLY True Storms and Wet&Cold. I'm covering this on its own because its a bit of a special case, so here is what your load order should look like:
    -TrueStormsSE.esp
    -TrueStorms Water Fix.esp
    -TrueStorms + Wet&Cold Compatibility Patch.esp **If you are also using Wet&Cold. Can be found on its own separate page here.
    -Wet&Cold - WaterFix - Addon.esp**Optional. Can either be found on this page or the same page as the above, they are the same plugin.

    4. You are using a major weather overhaul alongside True Storms and are merging them with one of my patches, along with (or without) Wet&Cold. This is where things start to get a bit confusing, as there's some extra steps for you to take if you want the cleanest load order possible. In essence I tried to create my True Storms merged patches as a complete replacer patch for all of the other miscellaneous patches you might download on other pages, including the Water's Edge Fix plugin found here. Here's an example of what your load order should look like, using an Obsidian + True Storms + Wet&Cold setup as an example:
    -Obsidian Weathers.esp
    -TrueStormsSE.esp
    -Obsidian_TS_Patch_(PreferredVersion)_WaterFix.esp **Which can be found at this page and replaces the ObsidianWaterFix.esp found here.
    -Obsidian_TS_Wet&Cold_patch.esp **Which can be found on its own separate page here.
    -Wet&Cold - Waters fix - Addon.esp **Optional. Can either be found on this page or the same page as the above, they are the same plugin.

    **Do note that Wet&Cold can generally be loaded in any order here as long as it's above the Wet&Cold specific patches. As a general rule of thumb, you can trust LOOT to sort these out for you, so all you really need to worry about is getting the right patches for your particular needs.

    Hopefully that clears up any confusion! There are also patches available on those pages for audio overhauls like Sounds of Skyrim and Audio Overhaul as well, plus further instructions in the comments section if you need them. If you want to take it one step further and add in Minty's Lightning into the mix as well, I also have a Minty's Lightning + True Storms patch available here to merge Minty's Lightning into a large setup as well. Happy modding! :)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Also, just a friendly reminder that there is a bug section. It is 1,000 times easier for authors to fix and keep track of bugs and glitches when you post them in the bug report section, rather than in the comments, so if you find any strange visual glitches or places where the mod isn't working, please post it there instead of in the comments :) It would be greatly appreciated. If you do, please remember to mention what setup you have, which version you are using, and if you are using an ENB. Thank you!

    With your permission I would like to port this to PS4, I can confirm privately that it is working as intended with the vanilla patch for sure. Just let me know, I don't post on here very often but this mod is so amazing.

    Please tell me if Water's Edge Fix will work with Water HD ?
    If so, which one do I need to select and install a patch?

    Should I update any ESPs from this page's FOMOD then? Or, assuming I am using all latest versions from corresponding pages you've mentioned, I don't need to worry about the updates on this page?

    Sorry for a stupid question!

      No worries! The patches provided here were specifically made to be replacement patches for them, so yes, for the best stability I would use these patches :)

      Sorry for being dumb, so if I use Obsidian + TS (Spectral) + W&C what do I pick in installer (as I can't pick both TS and OW)?



      Here's standalone patches from you I currently have installed:
      1. - https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/17198
      2. - https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/15632

      Current load order (THIS mod is not yet installed):



      So should I install this mod and overwrite ESP's from above two patches?
      And if so, do I install it twice to pick TrueStorms first then Obsidian Weathers?

      Nope! Actually your load order looks perfect exactly how it is already :D I created the WaterFix versions of all my standalone True Storms patches as a way to completely replace the plugin you can find on this page, to safe some space in your load order. So as long as you have the Obsidian_TS_Patch_Spectral_WaterFix.esp downloaded, you don't have to worry about anything on this page :)

    Noticed my water's edge looked awful - so I downloaded this. I installed it, ran the game and marvelled at how much better it looked. I opened the Nexus back up and came to this page to leave a comment and endorsement, only to notice...

    This is for Special Edition. I use Oldrim.

    Welp, it works - thank you!

    I am really enjoying this mod, thank you LoD7995. I want to point out that to me this is a performance boosting mod. The fog pushback is just right and I am honestly not using this as a water edge fix. This mod, together with Ethereal clouds and Obsidian mountain fogs makes for a nice distant fog effect that boosted my fps. There really aren't many options on nexus for outdoor fog reduction.

      Are you sure that this issue is caused by this mod? The only thing water's edge fix does is reduce the amount of fog in your weathers, it shouldn't affect the brightness in any way.

      now i made another test and i can approve that issue in your mod (TrueStormsWaterFix.esp)
      1st screen: truestorms only
      2nd screen: truestorms+ waterfix (truestormsversion, sure)
      3rd screen: truestorms+ waterfix, one second later
      https://imgur.com/a/0kk2Tmf
      it seems like, as you said, you reduced fog, and that fog hides this brightness behind himself
      p.s. tested truestorms no fog version - no difference.

      Huh, that's very odd, I'll run some tests and figure out the culprit. Thanks for pointing this out! :)

    Thanks for the patch! For clarification though: Is your patch still needed for the new version of "Obsidian Weathers" (v1.07)?

      I'm super sorry for the delay on the response, but yes, you can still use this mod with the new version of Obsidian Weathers, there are just a few things that need to be tweaked in the next update but it won't cause any stability issues :)

    I wanted to use this as the 'closer' mod in my list (currently 776), but the tradeoff's making it hard to decide. In one hand I have an absolutely stunning mod that allows for seamless water to ground transition, and on the other, the stupid fog things that I even made the effort to download a sizable shitton of mods for.

    WAT DO
