Removes most of the fog in Velen, Novigrad, White Orchard and Skellige while keeping vanilla-ish lighting. Adds some AO to vegetation for a more realistic look. Should work in  HoS areas. The swamps in Velen still use vanilla fog. Basically just a heavily modified and updated version of vikart's discontinued mod that works with the latest patch (v1.22).

Instructions for use

If you want regular character lighting (the artificial light around Geralt and NPCs) changes install:

  1. modExtendedViewDistance: Removes some fog and increases light reach distance from Skellige, White Orchard, Novigrad, and Velen. Also increases the light distance in Toussaint (but keeps the blue fog). Adds ambient occlusion to the foliage in all regions.
  2. Optional: modToussaintGrassInVelenNovigrad: Toussaint grass in Novigrad/Velen

If you want tweaked character lighting (Merged with Asmodean778's character lighting tweaks) install:

  1. modExtendedViewDistanceAsmo: Pretty much exactly the same as my main file, just without the artificial character lighting around Geralt and NPCs. Adds AO on vegetation to all the regions.
  2. Optional: modToussaintGrassInVelenNovigrad: Toussaint grass in Novigrad/Velen

If you want the alt lighting (much less fog than my other versions) install:

  1. modExtendedViewDistanceAlt or modExtendedViewDistanceAltAsmo: Removes A lot of the fog in Novigrad/Velen and Toussaint. Includes a farther light distance than vanilla. Also includes AO on vegetation. Asmo removes the artifical character lighting
  2. Optional: modToussaintGrassInVelenNovigrad: Toussaint grass in Novigrad/Velen

Optional Files:

  • modVanillaFogOnlyWithAO: keeps vanilla lighting and fog and adds AO to the foliage. Do not use with any other lighting mod.
  • modExtendedViewDistanceNonAO: Removes fog like in my main file, just doesn't include AO tweaks on vegetation.


Vikart for his original mod (Used part of his custom env file that he allows in other peoples mods) here.
Asmodean778 for his amazing work here.


Feel free to do whatever you want with it.
