Description
Seasonal Weathers Framework is a mod that can integrate seasons support to weather mods through a simple patch.

To make best use of this mod and the Globals this mod provides, you need make a patch and attach the Globals from Seasonal Weathers Framework to a weather mod's Regions.

This way, a weathers mod will have a seasons system similar to Obsidian Weathers & Seasons, but it is possible to also have it function like Aequinoctium which has season specific weathers. Both of those mentioned mods' seasons systems are included in one place.

Features
  • Dynamically altered Globals based on month that can be attached to weathers in Region records through a patch
  • MCM interface for customizing weather chances for each month
  • Seasonal Imagespaces
  • A simple Load/Save settings so you don't have to adjust again upon New Game (Requires: PapyrusUtil SE - Modders Scripting Utility)


Install
  1. Install Seasonal Weathers Framework
  2. Install a weather mod of your choice (See Patches available section to see what weather mods are covered)
  3. Install the patch for the weather mod you chose (see available patches in Files section)


Patches available
Patches are available for the following weathers mods:


Vanilla version
works for the following weathers mods:

More patches to be done when I have more time.


Compatibility
Seasonal Weathers Framework itself doesn't touch any vanilla records and doesn't conflict with anything.

However, the patches available here made for weathers mods will have incompatibilities with other mods like Sounds of Skyrim and Audio Overhaul for Skyrim. They are incompatible because those mods also touch upon the Region records that weathers mods use.

So, if you already use patches between weathers mods and mods like Sounds of Skyrim and Audio Overhaul for Skyrim, you will have to edit them to include Seasonal Weathers Framework as well.

Please do not ask me for patches regarding other mods that aren't weathers mods. I leave this part to the rest of modding community.




The following text is for people who want to make use of Seasonal Weathers Framework.

How to integrate the seasons system into a weathers mod through a patch:
  1. Open Seasonal Weathers Framework.esp and weathersmod.esp in xEdit.
  2. Right-click on Region inside weathersmod.esp and select Deep copy as override into...
  3. A new window opens, select first <new file.esp> in the list, press Ok and give it a Filename you want, like WeatherPatch.esp in this example case.
  4. Right-click on your newly made WeatherPatch.esp and click Add Masters. Select Seasonal Weathers Framework.esp

Inside WeatherPatch.esp, expand Region section and select any of the Region items inside. Scroll down to RDWT Weather Types, pick a weather on the list and in the Global line, double click on the NULL and select a global that starts with Season_ or SN_Season_

Note: Most weather mods don't have snow weathers in non-snowy regions so you may need to manually add them to the Regions records and then assign them a Global.

The following Globals are available for use in a patch:
