About this mod

A semi-realistic balanced ENB preset for Cathedral, Mythical Ages and Obsidian. The goal was to achieve a beautiful, reasonably realistic, correct image.

Permissions and credits
Clarity - Balanced ENB


Night Eye and Predator Vision compatible now (thanks to user Fallven for the idea), different visual settings for saturation, luminance, and sharpness have been added (v1.4).


Clarity ENB was created to obtain a realistic and beautiful image, realism is not to reduce the saturation of colors (the image should remain beautiful and attractive), but to correctly display each of the details that you see on the screen.

Detailed description:


Technical description:

 - Using the almost complete set of functions of the latest versions of ENB, including Wet Effects, Rays, Particle Lights and others
 - Intensive use of the weather system, which, although it takes a lot of time, but allowed me to fine-tune each type of weather, including the introduction of separate settings for the weather in Solstheim
 - Different image quality settings
 - Clarity ENB does not darken interiors, if you want to, use other mods, for example: ELE, RLO (without weather) or ELFX with Enhancer
 - Clarity ENB is absolutely completely based on Skyrim Re-Engaged ENB by Firemanaf (with his permission), all shaders are taken from Skyrim Re-Engaged ENB, I just made some settings

For a more interesting image, it is recommended to use ENB Light and a series of mods Rudy HQ - More Lights for ENB SE. At the same time, the use of these mods is absolutely not necessary, the ENB works without them.

If you want to change some ENB settings:



Shift + Enter - enable / disable the ENB menu
Shift + F12 - enable / disable ENB
Shift + F10 - enable / disable the DOF effect
* - show FPS

Night Eye and Predator Vision:

For correct functioning of the night eye and other in-game effects, as well as predator vision mod, you need to install the ENB Image Space Fix (only the main file, not patch) and my ESP (patch). Both ESP are flagged as ESL, so they won't take up space in your load order.
If you don't want to install the ENB Image Space Fix for some reason, you must uncheck "Apply Game Color Correction" in the enbeffect.fx tab, otherwise, the image will be incorrect.


1. Install the desired weather mod
2. Install the ENB Image Space Fix (only the main file, not patch)
3. Download and install ENB Helper SE
4. Download the latest ENB, unzip and copy the following files into your SkyrimSE folder: d3d11.dll, d3dcompiler_46e.dll
5. Download Clarity - Balanced ENB for the weather mod you need, unzip it and:
- copy all files from the 1_Main folder into your SkyrimSE folder
- install Patch with your mod manager from folder 2_Patches, load order:
1."weather mod".esp
- choose the settings you need from folders 3...6, copy and overwrite files to your SkyrimSE folder
6. Disable Godrays, Ambient Occlusion, Snow Shader and Lens Flare in the Skyrim Launcher, make sure that the in-game brightness slider is set to the default position. Version for Cathedral and Obsidian can work with vanilla volumetric rays, but does not require them to be enabled. Turning on vanilla volumetric rays in the Skyrim Launcher causes a drop of about 4 FPS on my PC.

I also highly recommend calibrating your monitor.

Sorry for my English, it's not my native language.
