Originally specifically made for PhotoRealistic Tamriel Enb,

Natural and Atmospheric Tamriel
(NAT) Stand Alone edition
has been entirely redone to be
a complete all-in-one DLC sized weather, lighting and visual enhancer for Skyrim Special Edition,
looking as close as possible to the natural lighting preset of PRT.

From the lighting and the climate to the skin shaders and particles effects, almost every aesthetic aspects of the game have been altered in some way
to give the most natural and eye candy visual possible.

Because NAT changes so many aspects of the game it is mandatory to use it at the very last position in the load order
in order to get
the intended look and effects.

NAT is a long work in progress modification that is going to be fine tuned over time and some weathers from this release aren't 100% done yet.

*All the pictures from the author's gallery and the description have been made without Enb-Reshade-SweetFX*

NAT is almost entirely modular from the NAT Settings spell :
to change ingame the climate type, to instantly change any weathers and storms,
to change night luminosity, to enable or disable special effects...

NATFX are optional and fps lossless visual settings to change the graphics of the game like a built-in Enb.

In the current released version of NAT only few presets are implemented,
but I plan to work on this part of the mod later and if possible, to reproduce the NACFX system from Fallout 4.

The default climate is Natural & Atmospheric, using all weathers available with balanced atmosphere.

Bright & Pleasant disables some of the darkest weathers and reduces the chances of the much cloudiest one to give a very sunny, cheerful and summery atmosphere with a very low chance of rain.
Dark & Gloomy on the contrary, disables the most sunny weathers and reduces the chances of the bright days to offer a cold, dark and grit atmosphere.

NAT doesn't only change and add new weathers but it also changes and enhances a lot of light sources, particles and special effects, clouds and sun effects, snow shader and color, tweaks dynamically many ini settings depending of various situations for both interior and exterior locations and reworks entirely the tonemapping of the game.

The NAT particle overhaul will mostly benefit to Enb makers and can be compared with what Oldrim's Particle Patch for Enbs achieves.

NAT also fakes cloud shadowing for cloudy weathers, wetness for foggy and rainy situations, sub surface scattering, additional skylighting,
diffuse lighting for dawn and dusk time...
The Graphic Options from the NAT Settings can be used to toggle some of this features:

NAC does a lot of what other mods can do and more,
but in its own way and calibrated for itself, with the insurance of total compatibility and optimization.

Obvisously NAT is not compatible with any other weather mods.

For those who want to push the graphics even further
NAT is best used with

PhotoRealistic Tamriel
