About this mod

Fixes the always daytime, overly bright sky in Moonpath to Elsweyr.

If you've played Moonpath to Elsweyr, you might have noticed the very bright (completely white) sky, and also the absence of a day-night cycle. This is because of the strange way lightning was implemented in the mod, which was probably caused by a technical limitation of the time. If you liked that for the dreamy feeling it gave, this mod is not for you.

What this mod does is remove the very bright permanent light from Moonpath's cells, and add a proper sky lightning to them, with a day-night cycle, etc. It's not thought for a particular ENB, as I edited it with ENB off, but don't expect incredibly beautiful sunsets or something, as I'm not much of an artist myself. What I did was add custom weather in a non-ugly way and make the sky work. If you want to see how it looks, check the images section, and videos are of course very welcome. Now, onto the technicalities.

While the mod is completely playable right now, I'll probably improve it some more later. Some ideas I have are adding rain and other types of weather to Moonpath, and improving on the topal sea island, which right now doesn't look bad but has a somewhat weird seam at the sea's edge, especially without ENBs.

This mod is incompatible with mods that edit the cell forms for the Moonpath mod. A mod that does this is Custom Music for Moonpath to Elsweyr, also by me, for which a patch and a merged plugin are included (even if you use the merged plugin, please refer to that mod's page for fixes to a common issue or two and notes on compatibility, etc.) . Another is Beyond Skyrim: Bruma - Moonpath to Elsweyr Synergy Patch, which can be fixed by putting this mod (or the patch for this and Moonpath Music, or the merged plugin) in a higher position in the load order (as in high number, low on the list, in other words make it load after) than the Beyond Skyrim Synergy Patch.

This mod can be installed mid-playthrough. As for uninstalling mid-playthrough, it is script-free, but be careful anyway.

Suggested mods
Unofficial Moonpath to Elsweyr Patch by Joseph Russell (fixes various bugs)
Beyond Skyrim: Bruma - Moonpath to Elsweyr Synergy Patch by Joseph Russell (not necessary at all, but quite nice if you have both mods)
Custom Music for Moonpath to Elsweyr by me, fixes another oversight in Moonpath, that is the vanillla nordic music in a tropical setting. Also has custom combat music for Moonpath!
Legacy of the Dragonborn SSE by icecreamassassin, I would recommend this incredible mod regardless of having Moonpath but it also adds some Moonpath-related content (for example, one of its first main quests sends you towards Moonpath's locations).

My other works

I also make The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth mods, and I'm collaborating in the (dare I say) DLC-sized Revelations mod, that has a published second chapter. If you play that game, you're welcome to take a look.
