You can get the same effect by turning the bleach bypass on the FXAA Injector above 100%.
Many ENB configs feel like the config-maker made the entire config in one spot (in game). Some look gorgeous indoors, but the moment you walk outside it'll melt your eyes out. Stuff like that.
As much as the Empire wants to help their people, they are powerless. I felt the only way to ensure that Skyrim becomes free of Aldmeri oppression was to side with the Stormcloaks. Even if the Empire put down the rebellion in Skyrim, they would still be slaves to the Thalmor.
Some things about it that may bug you:
- It adds a red-ish hue to combat Skyrim's blue-green hue. This means things like fire is really orange and snow can have a purple hue if the sun is bright enough.
- The snow is really fucking bright. I personally like this though, as snow really looks like that when it's sunny.
- Indoor areas like Dragon's Reach are quite red. Easy to get used to though. Other interiors are fine though.
If you do get it, use the darker nights and interiors version.

Even if Skyrim was part of the Empire, there is still Hammerfell which seceded. There is no hope for the Empire with just Skyrim and Cyrodil(don't give me any Morrowind bullshit because they are hardly in a position to contribute to a war in any meaningful way).
Again, Hammerfell successfully drove off the Thalmor. The Nords could drive off a Thalmor invasion as well, especially if they allied with the Redguards.
to be MUCH better than RCRN.
I've tried both, and after RCRN gave Whiterun a nuclear glow in the middle of the day, I found Realistic Lighting to be a much better alternative.
No postprocessing bullshit and it gives a nice tone to everything; albeit it makes some places a tad bit dark (especially at night).
(Keep in mind though that how I describe it looking on my monitor will probably be different from everyone else)
I just bought Morrowind and I've only played through Oblivion and Skyrim. Any tips for a new player?
You're going to have a very tough time adjusting at first.
You can actually fail to hit people when attacking them.
(As in, you're aiming right at them, but still somehow miss)
Also, these fuckers:
Yea, there is a lot of racism in the Stormcloak ranks, but is it really hard to see why? These guys see the Elves as coming into their land and persecuting them. Of course they are going to feel a bit strongly about the Elven races. When Skyrim is free of Thalmor influence, then the Nords are probably going to be a whole lot less racist.
If a cliff racer managed to find me, I basically just put my hands down and let it happen.
I hope somebody remakes Morrowind in Skyrim like they did in Oblivion.
Cliff racers were the most annoying shits to kill because you kept missing
The Empire stands an infinitely better chance of winning due to their heightened resources, doesn't regularly segregate people based on race, and their leader isn't a cunt who is basically a complete egotistical sociopath.
Okay, why can't I pick Odahviing, Paarthurnax and a few other living dragons, and just go an wreck the shit out of the Thalmor? No seriously, nobody would miss them.
Well, you can either pick the Stormcloak persecution or the Thalmor persecution. The Empire is too weak to defend itself anymore.
The Empire is done for. They can't hold onto their own provinces, they are enslaved by the Aldmeri Dominion. They aren't going to win a fight against them. Just the fact that a rebellion got so much support in Skyrim shows how completely ineffective the Empire is.
Which is why I know it will never happen
You have officially converted me. RCRN was almost like it was a mask on top of the existing Skyrim lighting. This feels like it totally replaces it.
(P.S. I'm using this mod which makes the auroras more flashy.)
Screenshots really don't do it justice, it looks so much better in motion.
Maybe if we get a tool in the future that would allow game developers to design large swathes of land(including huge cities) with a simple interface.
No, I don't see the Empire as being willingly compliant with the Thalmor. I see them as being too weak to defend themselves. And there are loads of reasons that Skyrim could defend itself while Cyrodil couldn't. Terrain, logistics, leadership, and the organization of the province.
Cyrodil probably could defend itself anyways, if they had better leaders in charge. Ever since the Septim line ended the Empire has had weak leaders.
Are there any fixes for vampirism with hoods? It seems like that when I have certain hoods on as a vampire, it glitches up and doesn't show and makes you appear bald.
Now, this all just as hypothetical as Cyrodil getting conquered, so I'm sure you can see why just brainstorming doesn't work so well.
