Spells Give Off Light

I DID IT!!!!!!! well, kind of. I fixed the shadows not being lit up. it is a simple ini tweak, go to skyrimPrefs.ini and under [Display] change "bDeferredShadows=1 to 0. now spells will light up shadows. Also, this mod i have found is EXTREMELY incompatible with more dynamic shadows, lights will randomly go off in the environment from shadowed light overload.

Spells now give off light when they are equipped, like flames and lightning should. All Spells Covered. For more versions of this mod, mainly smaller radius versions, visit my nexus page-

Minor performance hit on some computers depending on shadow setting, its an unavoidable issue, as only shadowed lights work for casting light from a spell

This mod does have some engine limitations, them being :
Will not always work indoors
Must have shadowed lights to cast light

Great mod, saved me from using Candlelight every 60 seconds. Only issue was the fact - which you stated, that it didn't work in some dungeons. Otherwise, great mod. Cheers.

Nice mods, but from time to time it stops working. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes the mod stops working when I do a kill move with a sword and I have a spell in my other hand or it'll randomly stop working indoors.
