    Yea, I guess it's a matter of taste. I can't stand the pitch black nights and they're unrealistic anyway. It's never that dark outside at night especially with a huge moon overhead and clear, starry sky.

    Well that's a mighty lovely avatar and signature combo Naidia.

    I have yet to play around with ENBs. I have browsed some, but none stand out to me as all that appealing.

    Thank you, wish I knew how to mod, I'd love to see Dead Master's Dead Scythe in game.

    I know what you mean. I endedup not being entirely happy with my previous attempts (I'm a perfectionist ) so I tweaked some more today. Trying to go for a 'warm colors' look like Naidia's. Now I can't decide if I like my previous attempt better or keep this one.

    Something still feels not right though, can't really put my finger on what. Bloom? Color?

    WTB your sunny days in southern Skyrim! Mine always look too dark now, sort of like cloudy, even though the sky is clear.. but I dont think there's anything I can do about it without breaking something else and making snowy areas too bright. But I know how you feel, every time I get it right and start playing there are some small details that really start to bother me.

    Maybe it's blur or fog you're missing? The indoor images look great but outdoor ones, at least coming from my game look a little sharp and triangly (its a word!)

    Hm, can you elaborate further? It's the outdoor ones that looks nice, but I feel like something is off. Don't know what. It's not really realistic though, I admit. A place as cold as skyrim shouldn't have such colors. But eh.

    And, would you like my ini settings? You can copy my settings and then tweak from there maybe, if you want to spend another 8 hours. lol. I use climates of tamriel, feels a lot more natural like RL and most importantly, no more overly yellow glare from fires.

    Oh, I think you misunderstood me. I have no idea what most of those settings do. I only touched a few obvious ones like brightness and got the rest from other ENB mods as well as some of the files from them (trial and error pretty much). But I admit it does look fairly realistic now with a slight rubbery look.

    There are just a few things I'm not happy with, one being rain sound and no rain sometimes (Im also using climates of tamriel) and the other is that fires at night really dont produce much of a glow. It's probably possible to increase the glow radius somehow but I have no idea what to change..

    The only proper way to do it is to mod each and every candle/torch and fireplace in the game through the creation kit, which is time consuming and annoying.

    Great! Thanks, I'll give it a go. It probably don't affect torches though.

    So, i've recently started playing Skyrim again on the xbox 360, and, i'm doing rather well at the moment, i'm a level 16 Orc (i'd say warrior but, meh) with Spellbreaker shield and Mace of Molag Bal. I'm just wondering if there are any other great weapons or pieces of armor to go for around my level? (other than the Daedric armor from BS, which i am working towards.)

    Also, are there any great and relatively easy ways to make gold early on in the game, as currently, the only way im finding myself able to gain a decent amount of gold is to mine out the Orc Mine (forget the name) and sell all the Ebony Ore to the Orc outside.

    Nebula sky mod? I like it. That's what I'm rockin to. After a couple hours on my modest pc I managed to get something decent looking out of it.

    I need more video memory to be honest but I love fucking around with this shit man. I wish more games let you screw around with them like this. It's a shame the industry is moving away from this.

    3rd night of not playing skyrim, only tweaking. I decided I hate blooms after all. And now my stuffs is kinda dark (like the cloudy-on-a-clear-sunny-sky type). Almost no documentation online on what each setting does though, so annoying.

    So this mod, The Wilds ENB... Does it require a decent Graphics card?
    The Runaway. I love my new nickname. Is there a picture of me? Does it look good?

    It depends how you tweak the settings. I posted some screen shots earlier and it looks decent and I'm only running a 6850. Vram is important though. The more the better really.

    Yea, it is. Unfortunately it doesn't work with torches and other lights.. but then again they're kinda buggy anyway. Like candlelight spell. It barely illuminates a few feet in front of you in 1st person but go into 3rd person and it lights up the whole place, including sky. It's probably not a problem with vanilla lights but kind of ruins it when using darker nights mods.

  17. #6477
    Well I use Climates with a slightly modified Climates ENB, so the nights are darker, but not the pitch black that some people like.

    any screen shots? and what modifications did you make?

  19. #6479
    Does anyone else have problems with climates default ENB? It looks great when changing things around a bit but the shadows are really deep and dark. I actually like it but unfortunately it really ruins some towns and more shaded areas.

    Alternative is there any setting I could change to make shadows deeper and darker on other ENBs?

    I had this issue with version 119 of ENB, but when I went back to the previous version, 113, everything worked great. Sadly, the previous version didn't have the awesome godrays.

    No screenshots atm, but I just tweaked the day/night numbers a bit in the ini. Originally did this because ENBv119 with Climates made the shaded areas pitch black, which looked really bad when in cities, like Lizbeth said. Something was either lit, or pitch black. When I went back to ENBv113 I never reverted my changes and ended up liking the outcome.
