About this mod

Updated 29/3: Now Supporting Dolomite Weathers! Using a number of lighting and colour techniques, this preset gives a vastly improved look over vanilla, whilst being relatively performance friendly. Supports Vanilla, Dolomite Weathers, True Storms, Climates of Tamriel and Vivid Weathers.

Permissions and credits

  • Ambient Light, HDR and Bloom working in synergy to create realistic lighting.
  • Colour Correct Lut created with photoshop (Thanks TreyM!) for a perfect reproduction of colours. 
  • Working Depth of Field for ENB version (Thanks to MartyMcfly and L00ping).
  • Luma Sharpening to remove the blur evident in vanilla.
  • DPX and Vibrance working together to bring the colours to life.
  • Curves for improved shadows that still allow you to see in caves and dungeons.


 If you like this mod, please don't forget to endorse it. I've spent many hours tweaking it and I'd greatly appreciate it if you could do so. 



Thanks so much for your work, your commitment to this reshade is outstanding. Super easy to tweak too with the new reshade. - gazman567

Wow. Nice work mate! Such a nice reshade and it only takes a bit of my fps. Thank you so much for this!- Tizix  

This is my favourite preset so far, nice work.ENDORSED - izon87604  

looks amazing - chypres89 

Uninstalled Climates of Tamriel to try this out, and I am not disappointed at all! And I don't have that odd purple hue that others have gotten. Installed True storms, then this sweet little gem, and I've been having a nerdgasm for the last ten minutes. GG M8! - jbgilbreath 

Love the new update. This is a great preset, the best out of the 10+ I have tried. I like how you built it around vanilla, which also makes it compatible with True Storms. Great work. - ThatSpartacusGuy
out of all the presets i've tried so far this is the perfect mix of colorfulness, contrast and performance.. and my blind ass doesn't have to turn the brightness at maximum inside dungeons so i can see a damn thing  well done! - acidflu 

Thank you for great reshade preset, endorsed! - halabit 

I generally don't like Reshades but so far this is the only real thing we've got for SSE. I tried lots of presets and I didn't like them too much, however you did really good. Both interiors and exteriors look good, in my opinion. It's changing the visuals enough but not over the top. Well balanced  Endorsed. - kazuyuki 

This is a majestic reshade. Endorsed. - PanicAtTheBanyo 

That's one badass, relatively low performance piece of art, I'm blown away. I'm a total ENB/Reshade snob and I'm utterly sold. 10/10 endorsed. -Callystaza
Sir, you are doing the lord's work. I personally set the vibrance to max for the extra "RealVision" look. Thank you so much. - fableboy10 

I almost gave up on the idea of finding a reshade preset i like... But this one really hits the spot. You are a genious! As far as i have tested it, it's exactly what i was searching for. Thank you for sharing this! - OutLaw666 

Thanks dude. This Reshade is literally perfect. - abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvqxyz 

f***ing awesome enb - quachdaivy 

Bang-up job with this Reshade, I've only tried one other Reshade thus far but this beats that one by leaps and bounds. Endorsed. - Devi0usMinds 

Very nice, finally a reshade/enb preset with the saturation / bloom i like. Thank you. - remlnx 

had to ditch away my own preset for this, it looks wonderful and stays true to the vanilla skyrim feel thank you! - sneezes 

Amazing ENB.I tried every single one out of the first 7-8 on the nexus and this is the only one that looks like an ENB should to me.
Had a bit of preformance trouble in and around riften but with some tiny tweaks I was able to get it at a steady 60.
Great work. - FashionSoulsReModded 

Very well done! The colors really compliment the environment! ENDORSED! - luthaum 

Your reshade is absolutely fantastic! I've tried several before yours and nothing can compare. - chubbyd07 

Using the Reshade...amazing. Game feels completely different! Also thanks for the recommendation of Noble Skyrim ^.^. It works great with this! Cheers! - LuLulz 


Beautiful ENB Preset finally found one that actually lets me play with minimal FPS hit. TY so much wish i could endorse twice. Will be looking forward to seeing more of your work Thanks - FFantasykid69

Your preset keeps getting better and better. Hoenestly, the only good ENB at this time. - Superw0rri0
OHHHHHH! This is bloody delicious mate! Would be nice if someone (you) made this enb=reshade for fallout 4  But in all seriousness good job, it's been the only enb on SSE that i've liked so far! - jyes

Firstly, Make sure your brightness is set to default (middle). Secondly your gamma by opening up SkyrimPrefs.ini located in Documents/My Games/Skyrim Special Edition and changing the following under the [Display] section.


This preset was created using TAA and will only look right if using it. Lumasharpen is used to negate any blur created. SMAA and FXAA don't cut it and will look jaggy.

These are the visual mods I use, so if you want to get your game looking like mine, download the following:

I highly recommend you to use Dolomite+True Storms with my matching preset. In my opinion it looks the best and the most realistic, esspecially since update 4.4.

Please install the mods in the following order to avoid issues.

A Noble Skyrim Texture Pack Full <--- Download manually and add to Nexus mod manager manually.
Static Mesh Improvement Mod 
A Noble Skyrim SMIM and SE Patches <-- Download manually and add to Nexus mod manager manually.
Skyrim Floral Overhaul SE <-- WARNING! PERFORMANCE HEAVY Be sure to edit "Skyrim Floral Overhaul.ini" in your /data/ folder to
iMinGrassSize=75 if using Verdant, otherwise leave at 20
Verdant - A Grass Plugin  <--- WARNING! PERFORMANCE HEAVY!

Verdant Realistic Water Two Patch
Dolomite WeathersTrue Storms (RECOMMENDED) OR Vivid Weathers OR Climates of Tamriel
Enhanced Lights & FX - Only install the SMIM Patch.
Simply Bigger Trees
Tree's in Cities
JK's Whiterun and JK's Riverwood
Lanterns of Skyrim <-- If using Vivid Weathers make sure you download the Vivid Weathers Patch.

I don't recommend using Enhanced Lighting for ENB (ELE) with this preset. It will make light sources very orange and not look right.

NEED HELP? Post in the comments!

  1. If using the Dolomite preset, ensure it's installed before continuing as my files overwrite it's default settings.
  2. Download my preset and place everything from the first folder into your Skyrim Directory where "SkyrimSE.exe" is located. Overwrite any files if asked. An easy way to find this is to right click the game in your steam list, click properties, click the local files tab and then click browse local files. This is where you want to place all the files.
  3. Open the folder of the preset you want to use and place the "Nyclix's ENB.ini" file in your Skyrim Directory.
  4. Check to see if you have dxgi.ini in your skyrim directory. If you do, delete it. Dxgi.ini scans your presets once and keeps a record of them. If you try and add another preset it won't come up so deleting dxgi.ini makes dxgi.dll rescan for presets and make another dxgi.ini.
  5. Once in game press shift+F2, press continue and then select the preset from the drop down menu. Continue by following the on screen prompts until you're finished. If the shift+F2 menu doesn't appear try renaming dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll and reopening the game. Please note that doing so means you cannot use enb and your steam overlay may not work.
  6. The core version is now installed. If you want to add ENB with depth of field continue on (Warning! Performance heavy), otherwise enjoy! 
  7. Download Enb v0.310.
  8. Open the wrapper folder inside the download and place d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e.dll into your skyrim directory.

Crashes after installing reshade are likely due to something conflicting with dxgi.dll - This is usually caused by anything that has an on screen display such as graphics overclocking and monitoring software so first try and close these and see if it helps.

If not, you should update your direct X with Direct X Web Installer.

If you're still crashing try renaming dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll

Hopefully your game now launches. One side effect is that you may not have access to your steam overlay using d3d11.dll

Delete the following files from your SkyrimSE directory.

  • Enbseries folder
  • d3d11.dll
  • d3dcompiler_46e.dll
  • enbseries.ini
  • enblocal.ini
  • Dxgi.dll
  • Dxgi.ini
  • Dxgi.log
  • RealVision Inspired ENB.ini
  • Ambientlight.fx
  • Bloom.fx
  • Curves.fx
  • DPX.fx
  • LiftGammaGain.fx
  • Lumasharpen.fx
  • Tonemap.fx
  • Vibrance.fx
  • FXAA.fxh
  • Reshade.fxh
  • SMAA.fxh
  • All the .PNG files
