    PLEASE, DONT FORGET TO GIVE AN "ENDORSE" IF YOU APPRECIATE MY MOD! There is a lot of work in it and so I'm asking for only a single click (it will not hurt you)! Feel free to add your own images if you want!

    READ CAREFULLY THE DESCRIPTION PAGE AND THE FAQs BELLOW! There are some important informations that can avoid troubles.


    PhoenixVivid ENB-Reshade is my start point for graphics modification in Skyrim Special Edition and the goal always will be a best balance between visual and performance. And I will do the best I can to increase the quality and give support to it, according with my not too much avaiable time. PhoenixVivid is avaiable in Full Version (which is a combo ENB + Reshade ), Quality Version (ENB ONLY version, but still gives a high quality visual) and Performance Version ( ENB ONLY version, tweaked for Low-End machines).

    IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that, although the last updates in the ENBseries for Skyrim SE, there's no multiple weathers support yet. Some nights are darker, others are brighter, it depends on the weather conditions. Is not possible to adjust the day and night settings for each weather at the moment. New features will be included and tweaked as soon as they become avaiable in ENBseries, so be patient! Constructive criticism and suggestions are always welcome! THANK YOU ALL!

    - EDIT (11/06/2018): My new ENB preset for SE is already avaiale on Nexus, recommended for those that prefer a clear, bright and vibrant atmosphere and colors: Imaginarium ENB

    IMPORTANT:
    *The new ENB Bloom settings will be noticed mainly in Interiors and Nights , near to light sources the nearby surfaces will have more interaction with the lights . If you think this effect is too strong for your taste see optional adjustments 9.6 on description page to know how to reduce it.

    ** ENB Rain Replacement: Based on my experience in Old Skyrim ENBs, I know that a large number of users does not like this effect. So I decided to leave it disabled by default. If you want to try it see optional adjustments 9.7 on description page.

    *** Vivid Weathers users: After Vivid Weathers update 2.30, during installation you will have 2 color shader options to choose: The Classic - Special Edition (used in old versions of Vivid Weathers) and the Filmic - Next Generation (introduced in Vivid Weathers Definitive Edition versions). The Classic shader is NOT SUPPORTED by this ENB preset anymore, so choose the Filmic shader during Installation of the new Vivid Weathers version. You are free to test the Classic shader, of course, but I have to say that the game will not look as intended (visuals will have disbalanced colors, brightness, contrast, etc).

    **** BE SURE of having bIBLFEnable=0 (under [Display]) and bLensFlare=1 (under [Imagespace]) in Skyrimprefs.ini file, otherwise you will have lens flare issues. bIBLFEnable= is automatically turned back to 1 everytime you touch the game launcher, so you will need to set to 0 AFTER EVERY TIME you use the launcher to adjust game settings.

    ***** ENB Subsurface Scaterring: The effect is not exactly the same that can be seen in old Skyrim ENBs, but its a great up for characters skin look, although it is highly dependent of lighting conditions . I had to tweak SSS in a way that does not cause bugs with mods like Enhanced Blood Textures and I've tested it with several skin textures avaiable on Nexus (include some for Old Skyrim that some players are using in SE). If you are using the mod Subsurface Scaterring Shaders for Skin, please disable or uninstall it. Its not necessary anymore.

    Let me know about possible issues if you find , this is very important for future updates. Thank you all!

    Dear users, unfortunately I really don't know when I will be able to work on updates for this ENB again. Firstly because I don't use it in my game anymore, and also bacause my free time to games and modding is too short at the current time. We are talking about 30 presets (versions and subversions of Phoenix) and its too much for me by now. My other preset, Imaginarium ENB (which I consider my definitive ENB for Skyrim SE) is the only one which I can keep up. Feel free to give it a try . If some of you have knowlodge about ENBSeries, also feel free to create your own ENB preset using my PhoenixVivid as foundation and to upload it on Nexus , just don't forget to give credits to me and to the guys at the end of description page. I will still be here giving support and answering questions, I just can't work on updates and sorry for that. Best greetings to all of you and thanks!!!

    First of all, AMAZING looking mod <3
    When I uninstall this mod, for some reason, I begin to get flickering/stuttering. Whether it's the full, quality or performance version (I tried all 3). Could you help me out please? I have obsidian weathers installed and ELFX and some other mods but this did not happen until I uninstalled your mod. And when I installed it again it went away and then it came back when i uninstalled. Im confused D:

      One more thing: I have the gtx 1060 6gb and 8 gb ram, pretty decent pc, and I get around 40 fps in all versions of the mod. Any insight? I found it very odd.

      I have Enhanced Light and FX, Verdant, Wet and Cold, and Realistic Water 2 and thats it for graphic mods.

      OHHH I deleted al mods and mod files etc, and all woked fine (excep for saves with mods), and when replacing "skyrim.exe" from a backup in case SKSE64 was outdated the stuttering began, even without mods, just SKSE64.

    You are the man! The performance version looks great and barely touches my frame rate. I just had to turn up the saturation and now my Skyrim looks exactly how I wanted it to. Endorsed!

    Thanks for the great improvement in my game. I might have missed something, but when i look at a fire source and move so that there is something between it, it change the casting shadow opacity. maybe it interfere with som lightning mods, idk, just wondered if you have experienced something similar?

      No idea for what you're talking about. It seems to be more related to Lighting /fire mods than to ENB. If you disable ENB Effects (shift + F12) the issue is gonne ?

    Absolutely amazing mod! Both Reshade and ENB (I've tried both).
    I love the contrasts and saturation, and colour balance. My Skyrim is so much better now!

    The only issue I have, and I know you're asked about that before, is the Night Eye fix. As one of my playthroughs I am a were wolf it would be immensely useful to have it work without disabling the ENB at night.

    But apart from that, it's awesome! So thank you greatly for sharing your work

      You're welcome, glad you like it! About Night Eye , I've never found a way to do this fix without breaking the visual quality. I 'm also without too much time for updates lately! = /

    Skyrim is beautiful! I had no idea what I was missing all this time. I was pretty sure, given the complexity of installing this mod and my inexperience with installing mods manually, that I would completely bork my game. But no! It took me a while, but well worth the effort and everything works like it's supposta. Thanks man. Great mod!

    Thank You for the ENB. you did a great job with this, i compared it to like 10 other top enbs and i picked this one, because i think it's the most realistic looking one also good job on the description page.

    If you ever want to improve this enb i feel interiors and night time could use more work.

      You're welcome ! About Interiors and Night Its a matter of taste and it also will depend on which lighting mod and weather mod you are using. In any case feel free to tweak the settings according your preferences!

    Hey which options lessens the shadows on trees, they're a little too dark for me and wanna lessen the effect

      It also depends on which weather mod and tree mod you are using. Dolomite Weathers and Skyrim Flora Overhaul has their own dark shadows (due too high contrast) which is very hard to reduce by ENB without affect the overal visual quality. Other thing that could affect shadows is your monitor or its calibration. Old monitors will show dark shadows.
      I would suggest to use one of my Quality versions for NAT, Obsidian Weathers or Vivid Weathers and see if the shadows is still too dark for you. You can also reduce the contrast in ENBEFFECT.FX section and/or increase the values of IMAGEBASELIGHTING parameters, but like I said before, it will affect the overal look, not only shadows.

    Hello, phoenixfabricio!

    Thank you for your ENB. This is the most beautiful ENB of all.

    I beg you to add “NightEyeFix”, as in other modern ENB from other authors.

    I really dont want to use others. They are not beautiful as yours.

      Unfortunately I don't know when I will update this ENB again. What you could do for now is replace my enbeffect.fx file (only the enbeffect.fx, not the enbeffect.fx.ini) inside enbseries folder with the same file from Rudy ENB (which is very similar to mine but contains the Night Eye code). So you can activate it opening the ENB ingame menu (shift + Enter), in the right window click on ENBEFFECT.FX to expand it and check Use Night Eye Fix line. Click on SAVE CONFIGURATION above on the left window to keep this change. But Be aware that this code for Night eye in Skyrim SE ENBs may cause some visual side effects ......

      Didnt work. Gamma has changed a lot, the setting "NightEyeFix" has not appeared and the ENB error message is constantly getting out in red.

      Wow! Sorry, I forgot that I did some modifications in my file, so it shouldnt be replaced. I will try to check about it, and maybe I release a night eye fix as an addon, in miscelaneous files.

      You can use ENBSeries 0.371 without problems. But you will not have the new per weather features until I tweak custom weathers settings for the preset. However, I don't have any idea when I will have time to do that.....
