Something is causing ENB to create a terrible sunray effect

Question

This only happens with Skyrealism ENB (cinematic preset) activated, however the Skyrealism author said that this effect should not happen. It goes away when I shift + f12 to turn ENB off so it's definitely only visible when ENB is active. 

 

Could this be a conflict with ENB and ELFX? 

 

His mod says it's fully compatible with CoT so it shouldn't be an ENB + CoT problem ALTHOUGH I did replace CoT's sun ray with Skyrim Sunglare V4 so maybe it's ENB + SS v4 that's the problem?

 

Any ideas?

Yes. Your sun textures, are not configured to work with the values used in the given preset.

Open the GUI and go find the sun intensity and glow under SKY and adjust them until you are happy.

 

In general you should do this in every single preset that does not come with its own sun textures, since its impossible for authors to take into account every single sun configuration out there. Many forget to mention it however!

Thanks buddy! I'm almost positive this is caused by Skyrim Sunglare v4. 


Are these the settings I need to modify?

 

 

 

SunIntensitySunrise=1.0

SunIntensityDay=1.0

SunIntensitySunset=1.0

SunIntensityNight=1.0

SunIntensityInteriorDay=1.0

SunIntensityInteriorNight=1.0

 

SunGlowIntensitySunrise=1.0

SunGlowIntensityDay=1.0

SunGlowIntensitySunset=1.0

SunGlowIntensityNight=1.0

SunGlowIntensityInteriorDay=1.0

SunGlowIntensityInteriorNight=1.0

Yup along with the glow haziness.

edit: also the sun rays if you think the god rays are too strong. If they are super strong then it will also cause brightening

SunGlowHazinessSunrise=0.0

SunGlowHazinessDay=0.0

SunGlowHazinessSunset=0.0

SunGlowHazinessNight=0.0

SunGlowHazinessInteriorDay=0.0

SunGlowHazinessInteriorNight=0.0

 

 

These are all set to 0.0 by default for Skyrealism Cinematic. Should I just leave these alone then?

These?

 

[RAYS]

SunRaysMultiplierSunrise=1.0

SunRaysMultiplierDay=1.0

SunRaysMultiplierSunset=1.0

SunRaysMultiplierNight=1.0

SunRaysMultiplierInteriorDay=1.0

SunRaysMultiplierInteriorNight=1.0

 

 

 

Seems like a ton of values to modify :-/. Also, all these values are at 1.0, which shouldn't be very intense at all, right? My guess is that Skyrim Sunglare v4 is causing this. Should I just use the CoT default sunrays instead?

CoT uses a different path for its textures, so you are in fact not using sunglare if you are using CoT 3.1 but rathers its default ones.

 

The higher to set the haziness the less intense the glow becomes. It will all be very clear once you start, and it should not take super long. Just go somewhere and make sure the ingame time is around 12:00 and then adjust the values. The value you get you can replace the rest with.

Move our screen so you can see the sun clearly. If its bad weather then take a clear one. open the console and the ENB GUI, and tweak away.

The reason for this is so the screen does not move all over the place when you do it.

 

A sun rays of 1.0 is rather strong... I only use 0.4. But again do as above and adjust acordingly.

 

As I recall then skyrealism only use Day night separation, not sunrise, day, sunset.

I am using Skyrim Sunglare v4. I followed the directions and dropped the two files into the climatesoftamriel folder and overwrote CoT's. 

 

Do I have to tweak ALL those values or do you think I can just fix it by decreasing the SunRaysMultiplierDay=1.0 to like 0.5? I just feel like there's no way I can tweak all those values one by one without messing everything up.

Just wait ingame until its 12:00 midday. Then alter the DAY values, and set the rest to this value.

 

Also good that you are aware of the texture paths! :)

Should I start with the sunintensityday value and see if it fixes it? If not, then move on to the next one, then the next one? Is that the approach I should take? I'm asking because I'm not sure if maybe a combination of the different values are needed or if just one of them will help.

Just try it out. They all do different things, set them up so you get what you like.

Ok I will. You can change the values in the ENB GUI so that you can see the immediate effect, right?

Well its better imo. If you are happy with it then play along, otherwise you know how to fine tune it!

 

Edit: You can also reduce the corona and see what happens. Again just alter it to the same values across the board.

      Heyas,
      I use the STEP ENB (light) and which looks good and works well 99.9% of the time. But sometimes, when I move from an indoor cell into Skyrim, the graphics turn dark blue (during the day)  or black (at night). What I mean is, I can barely see the surroundings and lights are slightly more visible, but the screen is mostly a uniform blue or black color? This makes it impossible to see when you are going. Most of the time this is solved by going back indoors then back out. Yesterday however, I had to reload a save (not an autosave) to get it to turn normal again, losing progress.
      I haven't been able to reproduce this nor does it happen very often. I am just wondering if someone else is experiencing this and what could possibly be the cause? I know next to nothing about ENBs, so I am unable to troubleshoot this myself. I also forgot to take a screenshot of it. I will add one when/if it happens again.

      So I'm having this issue where ENB seams to break the "seamless" horizon provided by cathedral weathers. Doesn't seem to matter what ENB I use, no conflicts in Xedit however I have read on a few forums (STEP) that this issue seems to be present no matter what and the more detailed rendering offered by ENB can make this issue more noticeable. Also this definitely seems more prominent during dawn/dusk nor really visible during other times. I'm not sure if it's really a mod issue, or if it's just another one of those fugly bethesda seams that we all inevitably see. ENB doesn't seem to matter I always notice this on clear dawn/dusks. Any input or advice would be appreciated. (Issue is easier to see in game than in screenshots) Here's  a link to a post I made on LL with screenshots. https://www.loverslab.com/topic/182711-skyrim-se-enbs-and-sky-mesh-issue/#comment-3631259
