Description
This mod anims to make skyrim more real looking. Lighting and weather effects. For example fog weather has fog camera effect. Night time is very dark. Dungeons are dark in non-lit areas. Sunlight is also more real looking. This also adds depth of field to distance areas making LOD more real looking. Gameplay will also change. Torches are now required otherwise something lurking in the dark will get you.

This mod edits
-Night time
-Day
-Dusk
-Dawn
-Inteiors
-And more npcs will use torches at night.
-And fog and snow effect
-And Depth of Field

Depth of the mod
-Dungeons are now pitch black in dark areas, torches or some sort of light now have a purpose now. More saturation added to make fire more real looking. Contrast is added to make shadows have more depth.
-Night time is pure black without lights. Sky is lit tho.
-Day light is very real looking. Adds contrast, more sunlight, and a depth of field
-Dusk is more contrasted and saturated, depth of field not added yet
-Same for dawn.
-Fog now is wispy when moving and fog weather is gloomy. Contrast added to add more depth.
-Snow also has camera effect of slow moving snow too or a flurry.
-effects like mist in a dungeon now have a lighting effect when a light source enters or nears. Much like unreal technology 4 engine
-sunlight is brighter now to look more real, Snowy areas only have half of normal sumlight amount in this mod. Other wise it looks like your in a light plane.

This is a DPV and Lighting.
Light is required now. Otherwise you die from something lurking in the dark.

This mod should be compatable with most mods but lighting ones.

Performence will drop.
Plz rate to support and have fun.

I was looking for DoF + the challenge of darkness, but this doesn't really work. It creates poor visibility in optimal lighting conditions. Unrealistically extreme contrast & visual adaptation makes it more difficult to play even during the middle of the day in the open.

this would have been a playable mod for me if the images didnt show EXTREME lighting that could blind someone permanently

why the hell would u make a mod that causes temporary to permanent blindness, thats messed up!
I'd rather use the realistic lighting overhaul because i believe it doesnt hurt ur eyes THAT much as this!
PLZ delete it, n one wants blindness for the rest of their lives

this was a great mod i got the darkness that i wanted but the patches between tourches need to have some light its imposable to see even with normal game brightness turned up. the lights from campfires pulse in a strange way and glow a really bright orange it hurts too look at.

It is a great mod, but I keep getting headaches from it's brightness.
