This mod applies the same trick used for allowing the sunlight to shine through another two small areas, as with Labyrinthian Shalidor's Maze Fixes: Giant's Grove, and Castle Volkihar Courtyard. They're both from the same MA.

ESPFE plugin.

Comparison Screenshots:

STEP base (no Weather & Lighting mods) > STEP base + DVLaSS + Shadows of Sunlight

  • Castle Volkihar Courtyard


  • Giant's Grove (Serana decided to appear out of nowhere and follow)



Unfortunately the big statue (in the center, not visible on screenshot, behind the rocks with the giant) doesn't appear to cast shadows. To be confirmed.

Note: this mod also includes the sunlight trick for Shalidor's Maze, so it's partially redundant with 'Labyrinthian Shalidor's Maze Fixes', but not completely, as it doesn't contain the latter's other fixes. Both mods can be used at the same time, load order doesn't matter.

There are conflicts with Atlas Map Markers which always wins, and other mods depending on where LOOT sorts this plugin. The changes are so tiny that they could all be included in the CR patch and this plugin could be omitted entirely. This mod has open permissions with these licensing terms: "If you use any part of this mod in your work, you must release it under Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)" which may be incompatible with STEP terms.


To go to Castle Volkihar Courtyard for testing:

  • Make sure this plugin is loaded after AMM otherwise it won't work
  • Can't fast travel there even with all map locations enabled, using the console (coc DLC1VampireCastleCourtyard) didn't work for me either
  • coc DLC1VampireCastleZCell1 in the console
  • The door to the courtyard is right next (or behind) you

Funny anecdote. If you look at this MA's list of mods, including this one, you may notice a pattern in their name. It's a running joke by the MA to name as many mods as possible so that they can be abbreviated by the TLA 'SoS', which is more commonly used to refer to the Schlongs of Skyrim mod (NSFW).

Good way to capitalize on the SEO of SoS and human nature to gravitate towards controversy and sex :happy:
