Fixed Eye Adaptation

Fixes the annoying eye adaptation effect!

This mod fixes Skyrim's annoying eye adaptation effect (which makes everything momentarily go super bright when you look up at the sky, for example) by setting Eye Adaptation Speed to 35 and Eye Adaptation Strength to 1 in ALL imagespaces (except the loading screen). The result is a true eye adaptation effect, rather than Skyrim's default exaggerated eye adaptation effect.

The intention is to fix eye adaptation, not disable it completely.

Certain spell effects (like Dragon Breath) use modifiers to change the eye adaptation effect (so you go blind for a moment). These modifiers have NOT been changed in this mod.

This mod was created using the Creation Kit.

This mod is incompatible with mods that affect imagespaces, such as the "Realistic Lighting" mod.

There are no screenshots because the eye adaptation effect can only be seen in motion. Instead, I have added a video of the mod in action.

This mod is also available at the Nexus:

I didn't even realize I had this and I was going to look for one. Totally isn't what I want. If I use spells myself I go blind almost completely. I can't look at the sky or i'll go blind aswell. I'm going to look for a better one, thanks though.

Thanks it's annoying going into a cave and then not being able to see anyting for a bit.

Thankyou for this. I've never understood why game designers have decided to simulate something my eyes are already doing, and thus causing increased eyestrain.

Works perfect on my PC (medium good engine); thanks soooo much for this! I was going crazy with that original effect!

You sir, saved my game! Without this mod, my eyes are killing me after a few minutes of playing through a dark cave with some torches. Now, I can play my game without my eyes getting tired in seconds!

I'm so glad somebody was able to fix it with a mod. I hate the sun blind effect so much.
