    since the true storms audio stuff has been removed, be aware that if you use true storms (or really multiples of any weather mods or patches to weather mods—for example i use cathedral weathers + kulharin's jawZ weather addon and his godray overhaul + improved rain & fogs + diverse seasons + a patch for those 2) you will need to patch the weather records to forward all the individual things from each plugin. otherwise you'll just get the individual stuff from the last plugin you load.

    if this one loads last you'll just get vanilla cathedral weathers plus the rain camera effect. if the godray overhaul loads last you'll get the vanilla cathedral weathers with the obsidian volumetric lighting modifiers, but you'll lose the rain camera effect. and if anything loads after true storms, you'll lose all its unique thunder sounds of course. but you definitely want true storms to load earlier since the actual weathers aren't so great.

    you could do this with mator smash, being careful to only load relevant weather mods since it has a hard plugin limit regardless of ESL flags. maybe wrye bash too, since it doesn't have that limitation, but i'm not sure if it can patch weather records. i'd suggest just manually copying the subrecords with xEdit, there really aren't very many. i just open all the weather plugins and go through the records with "hide empty and conflict-free rows" turned on, that's in the context menu if you right click any record cell in the view tab. then if you don't already know exactly what you're trying to do, you'll have to kinda deduce what each plugin does in each form.

    like for this mod you're gonna want to forward the VNAMs in the weather records. for true storms you're gonna want to forward the unique sounds, but not overwrite the precipitation sounds added by cathedral. so you'd be copying individual sounds, not the entire sounds tree. if you use diverse seasons, you want to head to the region records instead, although if you just use cathedral + this + true storms + diverse seasons, you can load that one last it should be fine. if you use jawZ weather addon too, then you need to patch jawZ and diverse seasons, because they both add new weathers to regions.

    Genius mod! Is it very difficult to realize this for Dolomite? I would appreciate that very much

    I have no idea how to get this to work, I read your sticky over and over again and I cant make sense of it, sadly I'm a complete noob, I really want this mod to work for me as I feel like it would be the cherry on top of my mod list, I use both true storm and obsidian weathers + seasons.

      I recommend you do some research on creating patches. It will pay off, I promise.

      It would require another patch.

      Does Weathers only support one NNAM Visula effect? because even when I would making a patch, I would loose "distant rain effect" from vivid weathers, since it uses the NNAM visual effect - slot.

      Any solution to use both visual effects? Or do I have to decide which one to pick?

      I'm no expert, but I think you have to choose one.

    For the mythical weathers version it's missing a few records, namely Rain_Light_1 - 4 and Rain_Heavy_01, 02 and 03.
    Other than that great mod, thanks!

    Sorry if I misunderstand something. But I can't use this mod unless I have other weather mod? I remember the LE version of this mod has a raw version for vanilla weather users. Only in LE but not here?

      Just being honest with you; I cannot recommend vanilla weathers over any weather mod.

    I use both true storm and Vivid weather with patches. What will happen if I desire to download just one compatible file (let say, this mod with Vivid).

      So I've made a patch where I left ICON - Particle Texture and NNAM - Visual Effect from CG4 while all the numbers and sounds are transferred from Vivid+True Storms compatibility patch. Is this the right approach? Cause I'm not sure I ended up with the camera effect as intended.

      The problem is, I don't see any drops on my screen. I mean the ones on camera lens.

      Download the file for true storms and vivid weathers. Compare them to the original weathers. Forward those changes to a new plugin.

    Newest version does not work on my setup with true stroms. The prior version however did work amazingly. Any chance you can put the older version back up on your page in order for users to roll back. I would very much like to keep this mod as it is one of the top immersion mods in my opinion. Just wish I kept the older version before updating.

      What do you mean by doesn't work exactly? No rain? No lens effect?
      I'd like to know what the problem is so I can fix it if possible.

      Hya. Right ok. I downloaded this immediately upon seeing this mod. Its amazing so firstly thanks. I downloaded the true storms version as im using that. Upon install and test it worked a dream. I then later on seen that you had updated it n then i installed the newest version. Upon doing so the lens effect does not operate. I tried many load order changes manual and also loot with also metadata manipulation within loot and it does not work. I would love it if you uploaded the older initial version to try a roll back. If i had downloaded it manually i could have checked. If you do upload it then i can check and i can let you know my findings. I really want this to work as its super good. So simple but so effective.

      I don't have the older version. That would be a straight port of the original though, in case you are wondering. What is your load order?

      V1.2 is what i got but im sure i had an earlier version like v1.1. I remember realising there was an update so i updated. What i have done is deleted it and re-downloaded and installed. I am goin to check again if sorted. The mod is very low in order list and below true storms. This is the only weather mod i got. I was stupid enough to flag cg4 as an esl as a certain script on xedit stated that it could be flagged and no compounding ids necessary. Thats why i have downloaded it again fresh and installed. If it works i will let you know either way. If it does not then i was wondering if you had v1.1 so i could try. If v1.2 is in fact the only version then im baked lol. I will let you know if it works. Thanks bud for replying.

      I have checked my newest install and now the file is flagged as an ESL anyway so maybe that was not the issue or maybe that is the issue. The earlier version you had on your file page was not flagged as an ESL as I manually changed it but this version V1.2 is already flagged as an ESL. I will try later to check if it works.

      Lol. Im a moron. Ive checked after reinstalling and the screen effect is indeed working. Whatever did happen was my fault! Your mod is perfect. I thank you very much for making this mod not only possible on sse but also making it compatible with so many weather mods and thanks for the reply........awesome mate.
