8K Night Skies - Stars and Galaxies (by JonnyWang)

Recommended Posts

This is quite a beautiful night sky texture but it does not work well with 'Animated Stars' feature from ENB, at least not as it's tuned with Rudy ENB out of the box.


Rudy offers star and galaxy textures in the 'addons' folder of his ENB preset that are comparable and work great with the animated stars feature, which is really damn cool IMO.


...If we're getting really serious about our night skies I highly recommend Rudy's stars with galaxies from Gamwich's Ethereal Cosmos, lol!

After some more testing and playing for several hours, I grew to dislike Vistant more and more as it consistently looked a bit low quality. This one seemed to look good while still being a close resemblance to vanilla. The recommended option provides a vanilla-like experience and when combined with Cathedral Weathers, pairs nicely default ambient light during clear weather.

Honestly I think Rudy's night sky is likely very similar to what's happening with JonnyWang's, I just like his star field texture a little better.

I do have reasons though to be using that instead; namely that I'm using both Rudy ENB + ENBLight.  Had major concerns that ENBLight would destroy my FPS but it hasn't seemed to affect it at all (outside of candles... nordic ruins and lots of candles around does start to drain FPS... but I live with it cause it's so awesome everywhere else), and really does some amazing things with lighting in the game.

Anyway.  Slightly off-topic.

      I followed the STEP guide for SSE to the letter and booted up the game prior to the Mod Configuration Menu Settings settings near the end of the guide.
      The game loads, but pressing Esc or Tab crashes it immediately. 
      I installed SkyUI (which I figured was the problem), sorted with LOOT, and now I have no issues.

      Just a heads-up, the SSE 1.0.0 guide does not list SkyUI as a mod to download.  It contains patches related to SkyUI, but not the mod itself.
      Great guide, guys!  It was easy to follow and I have zero complaints so far!

      Not too long ago I modded my game after following the current STEP guide for SSE. After that, over time I added a few more mods not included in the guide and one of the ENB presets suggested in the guide for Cathedral Weathers, namely A Cathedralist's ENB. I downloaded and installed the high-quality main file from here: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/25296?tab=files . I have been playing the game during weeks without game-breaking issues and the ENB has been working fine.
      Very recently, however, I have noticed that the brightness output level in-game has suddenly shrunk. I have started to see things darker while I am playing. I play in exclusive fullscreen mode. However, any changes in the in-game brightness slider do nothing while I am playing. But if I quit to the main menu, there the previously adjusted brightness level is apparent. In other words, any changes made to the in-game brightness only reflect themselves while in the main menu, not while I am playing. Is that normal? Does it happen because I have installed ENB 0.462 and the aforementioned preset? Of course, I can always adjust the brightness levels in the in-game ENB menus. But it puzzles me that any changes made to the vanilla brightness slider only are apparent once I quit to the main menu of the game.
      Thank you for reading me.

      I'm following the STEP guide for SSE.  I've gotten to the H segment of the Models & Textures section.  A couple of these have not had an ESP file.
      Do I need to have it ticked in the left window of MO2?  I'm up to 85 mods enabled now, just following the guide, and I'm concerned that I'll reach the 255 limit before I'm done.
      I've used the search function in the forums, but there are hundreds of results for "no esp".
      Thanks in advance.
