    Yeah I Was About To Say The Same Thing. Way To Saturated. I Tried Reallike ENB A While Ago And It Is The Worse Enb I Tried. The Sky In Skyrim Should Not Look Like A Tropical Paradise

    yet even if its an artic tundra the sky is blue and not everything is fucking grey either.

    99% of ENBs offer over saturation of colors with a yellow piss colored haze with an over abundance of Depth of Field so 99% of them look like shit,

    Its winter in here maine herp derp and what i see outside is similar to what skyrim looks like right now. Whiterun is a bit brighter than it should be but Its a trade off, Solitude / Riften /Falkreath all look like they should.

    Climates of Tamriel also screws with lighting a bit as well. Its a personal taste thing ill take saturated color over boring grey grey grey grey more grey with 12 noon looking like what 5pm does in reality.

    ALso if you had read the post i was using Skyrim Flora Overhaul Summer Edition, which is far brighter in color to begin with, gave it a shot because Vurt had just updated it the other day. Switched back to regular SFO and its not as vibrant anymore.

    says the guy that never goes outside :roll: sorry mailman had to say it haha

    Also doesnt look to over saturated to me sky is for sure but I can't single out ENB lighting to any singular object since it applies to everything I have to take what i can get. Trees are to bright as well green color needs tweaking but grass looks about right. In comparison to this shot.

    Skyrims Climate Does Not Mimic That Of Maines. More Northern Cold Arctic And Tundra Climate Zones. You Made Skyrim With That Enb Looks Like The Big Island Of Hawaii.

    Honestly Hawaii isn't even that bright. Here is some pictures I took at Pearl Harbor. Apparently Hawaii looks more like Skyrim than that mod Crazyeyes is using.

    Im just saying the mod hes using doesn't make Skyrim seem like a cold tundra. More like the Wizard of Oz. Case in point Hawaii isn't even that bright!

    Finally made landfall on Solstheim, things went pretty smoothly for a while as I adventured around the outskirts of the island.
    Then I started getting frequent crashes while climbing the mountains at the center of the isle.

    Turns out that Dragonborn doesn't like uGrids at 9. Set it to 7 and have been getting along ok. Still get the occasional crash.

    Awesome, more mods that will need updating, as well as a new script extender. I'll have to make sure Skyrim Unplugged is on. Thanks for the heads up Widjaja!

    Cuz it was just too awesome.

    I have updates turned off in steam, but it still updates most of the time regardless. Really annoys me, especially with a big update like this.

    Yeah, Turning updates off is not enough. You need the small program "Skyrim Unplugged". You can stop these updates from autopatching until youve been able to secure updated copies to any affected mods you have.

    I think you have to opt-in for these beta updates.

    Also, I don't know if it's the update or the new beta drivers from AMD but my performance has jumped up noticibly. But there's a downside, some weird graphics glitches like the textures of a mountain top stretching in a huge line across the sky.

    Either that or it's all the skooma my Khajit has been using!

    eh, I caught it early enough to have the original executable that didn't need Steam to run, and I've gotten my patches elsewhere ever since :)

    Turns out this beta gives your character diseases.

    While 1.9 beta fixes numerous amount of bugs it also introduced one.
    People who have downloaded the 1.9 beta have found cured diseases will comeback each time the player loads the game.]

    EDIT:-
    14mb beta patch released to resolve the disease bug.

    Wow, a beta patch for the beta patch!

    Do you have any idea how long I have to shore up my skyrim and make sure it doesn't download 1.9?

    I did the opposite since I am getting random CTD from 10min through to never having a crash.
    Even though I do believe it is to do with my 7870 and the 13.2 beta drivers.
    But I have also recently noticed my plugin text file also states I have realistic lighting mod which I have removed and have not had a CTD so far.
