Ljóss ReLUX

Official Lexy's Legacy of the Dragonborn ENB preset

ENB Preset especially designed for Cathedral Weather

I am pleased to present the new version of ljóss. I have done a complete code rewrite of my previous ljóss preset to improve its overall performance.
The full version makes full use of the available effects and offers a much better quality than my previous edition.
Balanced and Performance version are available if you need to save fps, check differences below.

Although this preset was created to be used with Lexy's Legacy of the Dragonborn, it can be used with any mod setup as long as the list of required mods is respected:

Ljóss includes a complete tutorial to help you easily set it up for your screen configuration and taste.
Each outdoor weather uses a separate configuration, most places use their own unique preset.

You can either just play and enjoy, or customize it completely to get your own unique and beautiful preset.

In addition, many advanced tools are included:

  • Customizable AGCC
  • ColorLabs
  • Advanced ENB Output Effects Editor
  • A fully customizable Tonemap
  • LUT support

Difference between version :
Allows to gain about 10 fps more than Full version at the cost of a minor quality loss
  • Most noticeable is the loss of the "Dual Sun Ray" which you can easily re-enable by activating the EnablePrepass (enbseries)
  • Dither is disabled (enbeffect.fx)
  • AA is fully disabled (enbpostprocess.fx technique is set to Ljoss No AA)
  • Temporal bloom sample is divided by 2 (enbpostprocess.fx)
Note: If you face too much fps loss during rain, disable EnableRainWetSurfaces (enbseries)

Allows to gains about 10 fps more than medium version, quality loss is noticeable but i tried to mitigate it.
  • Changes are same as Balanced
  • Use Game's ambiant occlusion instead of ENB's one (enbseries + games ini)
  • Rain Wet surface is disabled (enbseries)
  • Skylighting is disabled (enbseries)


To fully enjoy my preset, I strongly advise you to read my article to calibrate your screen properly.

Install ENB Binaries

  • Go to ENB Dev
  • At the bottom of the page, click the link for the last version.
  • At the bottom of the new page, click the download link.
  • When the file has downloaded, open the Wrapper Version folder enclosed in the archive and extract ONLY the files d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e.dll.
  • Place them into the main Skyrim Special Edition directory.

Install preset

  • Download and unpack the preset
  • Copy every thing into your Skyrim SE folder

INI Tweaks





IMPORTANT: If you use Performance version you must set bSAOEnable=1 in Skyrimprefs.ini and Cathedral Weathers.ini too.

Setting up HDMI Full Range:

A special step is required for users that connect their GPU and monitor via an HDMI cable.

For Nvidia users:

Go to your Nvidia Control Panel (right click on your desktop).
Then go to "change resolution" and find "Output Dynamic Range" and change it to "Full". (If it is greyed out press "Use NVIDIA color settings" first.)

For AMD users:
If you're using a AMD/Radeon graphics card you need to do a similar tweak, but you have to change the display pixel format instead. This can be done by selecting "RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format PC Standard (Full RGB)" instead of the default "RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format Studio (Limited RGB)" inside of AMD Catalyst.

Game setup:
  • Do the tutorial outside (no in interior cell)
  • Set Cathedral weather night to your liking (Dark / Normal / Brighter)
  • Wait 10-20 sec to let game reflect change
  • Adjust night setting (Color brightness (night)
  • Do the same for interior
  • Enjoy !
