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.

Not an ENB, no FPS drop!

1 - DOWNLOAD THE RCRN Main File for Workshop
DOWNLOAD from Skyrim Nexus[]
(the 'main file' is needed because Workshop can't manage files located into the Skyrim folders).

RCRN comes with 3 different Presets. This is LEGACY, the brighter one!
You can check also: PURE - CLASSIC

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.

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: 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)

This does a good job of darkening dungeons without an obvious light source. But it does have some adverse effects in other interior spaces that DO have sufficient lighting.

The center fire pit in Breezehome and Inns, for example, is plenty bright enough to have the entire space very well lit. Those areas should NOT be made darker.

I also find that sunlight outdoors is now TOO bright, and even book pages are too bright, something the mod should not affect AT ALL.

This doesn't seem to work with the Khajiit's Night Eye power; I still can't see a damn thing when I use Night Eye. I picked Khajiit specifically so I could creep around in the dark, but I can't.

Any way to fix this?

Why files are downloaded with the Bin?

The pick you used is from Ultima online the 7th age I think lol

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 :)
