RCRN 3.6 - Realistic Colors and Real Nights (Legacy preset)



RCRN is a total lighting and shaders revamp, it grants you an immersive gameplay experience without ruining the original feeling, finely tuned for indoor and outdoor scenes it also provides an incredible dynamic experience, weathers, lighting sources and HDR are dynamically generated and managed with our Hybrid Shaders engine!

Since v3.5 we totally reworked our exclusive Dynamic Interiors[] system, we added the new amazing Real Volumetric Fog[] and now everything can be easily managed through our fancy RCRN Customizer[] user interface!

This mod uses the power behind our .esp along with our custom Injector to generate a new and realistic color palette and an enhanced night-time.
The FPS drop is minimal, in the worst case about a 10% fps only in certain locations!

RCRN Official Website[]

RCRN comes with 3 different Presets. This is LEGACY, the brighter one[][/u][/b]!
You can check also:

You only need to download our 'main file' once or if we drop an update marked as 'critical', normal updates wil be provided automatically via Steam Workshop.
(the 'main file' is needed because Workshop can't manage files located into the Skyrim folders).

This means that if for example you are updating from v3.0 to v3.6 you need to uninstall the old 'main file' and download the new one, because 3.6 is a 'critical' update. But if you are updating from v3.5 to v3.6 no action is required, because it's just an hotfix and the Workshop will auto-update to it!

1: I’ve installed RCRN, but now Skyrim crashes immediatly, what can i do?
You’re probably using an old version of the runtime DirectX component, you can update it through the Microsoft website:

2: Pure, Classic and Legacy can't be subscribed or installed at the same time! Since v3.0 you can switch presets by sub/unsub them without uninstalling!

3: We semplifield a lot the installation guide for Steam Workshop users, for read it go here:
(please read this also if you are having problems/issues/questions)

4: WARNING: please always remember to set bFloatPointRenderTarget=1 into your SkyrimPrefs.ini in order to take advantage of the better reflections introduced in RCRN v3.5!


simply run the provided Uninstaller. (located in the Microsoft Windows Uninstall tab)

does this work with other lighting mods ?

From the images I see, the day-time (till evening) is great (lighting), but the nights are looking extremely dark; the Vanilla nights are ALREADY quite dark enough. Can't you make a version WITHOUT the nights darker?

I see you've used a part of the original boxart of Ultima Online for your icon. I approve; that game was such a giant part of my youth :)

@Nekkutikku: obviously not, you can't mix weather mods :)

Is this compatible with other lightning and weather mods?
