Love how it looks inside houses and cities but just too dark for me in dungeons/caves, constantly having to use magelight or candlight is too much hassel for me :(

make suer to load after vanella hr textures and dlc i had it working then it ctd me
Zujewski Aug 8 @ 2:20am 
Curious, i've subscribed to this mod, and used LOOT for my load order, yet everything is still bright as can be. Any ideas on what could be causing my problem? LOOT says there's nothing, so i'm clueless.

my game is still f***ed because i installed it and i thought that it was too dark outside at night so i uninstalled it and its still on even when i don´t have it please help
Geoff_Smith Jul 11 @ 10:49am 
increase your brightness and mess around with contrast and saturation mods
lonevision Jul 9 @ 1:49am 
Outside looks fantastic, and coupled with an interior mod, the houses look great. But caves and dungeons were ridiculously pitch black. And using a magelight washes everything out. Had to uninstall. :(
Buddy Holly Jul 9 @ 12:27am 
Looks great!
Flamethrower77 Jun 17 @ 6:00pm 
when you start skyrim open data files and all your mods should be there. you can turn them off and delete them there
Theinferno999 Jun 14 @ 5:54pm 
Please help, i uninstalled this because its so dark, and my game is still plagued with rediculous quantities of darkness... How do you fully uninstall this mod?
TragicShow Jun 3 @ 9:30am 
Amazing mod. I love the more realistic mods and caves. I always found it troubling how an abandoned cave or dungeon could have candles illuminating it after thousands of years. Only problem is that the houses are a bit darker now, but oh well.

After uninstallation, mod continues to plague my world with darkness :L
I understand "Realistic" means dark, but waiting ingame for darkness to pass, and carrying a torch wherever I go wasn't in the game design. I should be able to see where I go during the night, or in caves, without having to cast candlelight spells to be sure.

For those of you who are deathly intent on defending this mod, let me tell you I like what this mod does, and don't even necessarily disagree with the level of darkness it adds to the games nights and caves. My point is, after you uninstall a mod because it changes something you don't want changed, or you don't like something it adds to the game, it shouldn't still be there.

I need help, this mod is way too dark,now i unistalled it but mod still working. Every caves and houses are too dark i cant see anything. Someone know how to fix it?
Snippertje Apr 25 @ 1:21am 
Bit dark, but realistic and an amazing job!
maxim.vdc Apr 16 @ 2:40am 
I like this mod a lot, because it's actually very realistic, unfortunately realistic means everything is dark as f*ck. other than that I'd rate it 4 stars :)
Sirlight Mar 5 @ 11:52am 
nope i amnot using any toher mod for lightning :/
Asken Mar 1 @ 12:52pm 
Perhaps you are using other mods that are conflicting?

Or u can get some ''better'' glow effect mods, like torchers etc give better light :)

(make sure mods are working together)
Sirlight Mar 1 @ 2:19am 
This is how i see inside teh Riverwood building.
As you can see is WAY darker, shadows are little different and overhall my game looks too dark. I didn't change anything inthe options but i wish it looked like your screenshot... any way to help?
Sirlight Mar 1 @ 2:08am 
Honestly is WAY too dark interiors, even using the other file REALISTIC INTERIORS, please help :(
Ombrenoirz Feb 22 @ 10:36pm 
@⫷popcorn⫸ I have both, and indoors are dark af. I literally need a torch for some rooms in a house. I need help.
Zarokima Feb 10 @ 8:45pm 
I absolutely love the improved visual quality, but is there any way to make it not be so ridiculously dark indoors? I'm okay with the night-time level darkness, but caves and dungeons are just WAY too dark to navigate without a torch, and even that is still awful for large areas. It's bad enough that I have to disable this when entering a dungeon to not get super frustrated, and that still sucks because of the loss in quality.
Kayana Feb 4 @ 10:14pm 
@Ecukan Might have to do with the fact that this mod is exclusive to Steam, and steam workshop is very shoddy about mods.
Ecukan Jan 31 @ 10:53am 
sorry for spelling mistakes... went abit quick
Ecukan Jan 31 @ 10:52am 
I have no idea why this mod isnt more popular and why i see so many people in comments have problems with this mod? I have tried so many lighting mods including Realistic ligthing overhaul and Enhanced Lighting FX. with seem to be the 2 mods popular. I use this mod with another light fix mod. and you guys can check out my screenshots. it's amazing the lights this mod gives.
Keep in mind if you check my screenshots that i also have alot of other graffik mods on.. so i quess the mod combo i have gotten myself i amazing! great mod buddy!

Getting some really gnarly shadow striping when using torches inside caves. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
DontFeedThePanda Dec 19, 2015 @ 9:11pm 

If you are using SweetFX 2.0 remove it and go back to v1.5.
I was having a similar issue and this fixed it.
KALONA THE RAVENANT Dec 11, 2015 @ 6:13pm 
This doesn't make everything pitch black darkness during a rain or snow storm, does it?
✿paprika✿ Dec 8, 2015 @ 2:19pm 
Its seriously its dark at night with this mod, however, going back to vanilla was crazy bad looking, so my solution has been Magelight on everything. Thanks for the mod! :3
Avianna Nov 14, 2015 @ 10:19pm 
Does this mod need another mod to run. I am seeing darkness in bubbles that look like textures are missing rather then actually changing my light
MacTireLass Nov 2, 2015 @ 10:31pm 
I also have the clo lighting mod... will that make this one stop working?
Tuprewm Oct 18, 2015 @ 11:48pm 
I love the level of lighting, but I'm still noticing striping... Do you know what could fix that that's compatible with this mod?
Blake Sep 18, 2015 @ 9:10am 
Has the potental to be really good, but its abit lacking, not all torches are giving off light, and no decent balance of gentle light in some places, making it too dark and abit too reliant on torches! Hey at least torches are useful now! But I can't since I notice the bugs too much. It needs refining.
tristen the shadow dragon Sep 14, 2015 @ 12:51pm 
along the the skyrim in color mod this will look awesome
tristen the shadow dragon Sep 14, 2015 @ 12:50pm 
for people who complain about it being dark thats why they added the wait buttion lol
MacTireLass Sep 2, 2015 @ 9:07pm 
does this mod have any conflicts with weather mods? Or rain mods?
origamania Aug 11, 2015 @ 4:33am 
@Lampros Khajiit/vampire night vision comes in handy
Lampros Aug 9, 2015 @ 6:37am 
Nice mod, but caves and some interiors are un-navigable. How do people deal with this? Wear permanent lanterns via mods? :)
StarKirby the Chicken lord Aug 5, 2015 @ 7:11am 
when it was night it was hell of dark
Raywing Jul 31, 2015 @ 5:28pm 
I've got a problem. The rain doesn't shows for me, when it goes, it seems like some conflict with this mod
[ Rithela ] Jul 20, 2015 @ 10:26am 
This with saturation boost seems to work well together. Yes, night is going to be really dark. The mod is called REALISTIC Lighting. When you wonder around at night with no light sources but the moon, is it bright? No. I just find it amusing that people are complaining that it's too dark at night. Either way, great mod.
[DgC] Charles Alejandro Jul 11, 2015 @ 6:41pm 
Tbh it's really nice tho I can't roam at nights anymore it's not that I do perverted things is just that I prefer to attack when bandits and other enemies are sleeping

KingPancake Jun 30, 2015 @ 12:02pm 
Dodgy Intenzionz Jun 22, 2015 @ 12:31pm 
It's okay, But I found alot of lighting in interiors to be Un-realistically dark sadly. Places like High Hrothgar are particulaly gloomy
Master... Jun 17, 2015 @ 4:07am 
Loverin Jun 13, 2015 @ 2:51pm 
For some reason, it seems it is not working... help pls
