Both HD6 and Opethfeldt have enbeffect files that seperate day and night channels so any based on those you can do it through the effect file (mine uses HD6's file, I think it's better and you can easily drop Opethfeldts into the same file aswell). Just look for day/night brightness under proccesses and increase to make it brighter or decrease it to make it darker.

Or you can increase/decrease directlighting intensity night/ambient lighting intensity night in the enbseries.ini if the enb you're using doesn't offer those channels (it would be better to use one that does if you want to get into modification and desire more control over what you're doing, I do alot of my work in the enbeffect file).

Note that if you bump up the lighting too much in the enb effect file it can make dungeons and interiors overly bright, so try and find a balance between overall brightness and direct and ambient brightness.



 


Right Ive finally got round to sorting out my Skyrim Installation and Now got me ENB all ready to go.
Would I be right in thinking that these settings are the ones I need to change Lifeshield in order to make the night time Brighter ?

DirectLightingCurveDay=0.8
DirectLightingCurveNight=1.0
DirectLightingDesaturationDay=0.0

found within the ENBseries.ini file, I have had a poke about with the enbeffect file and it is indeed using the HD6 but the only thing I have changed in there so far was to disable the Ambient occlusion.
Appreciate any help on this.

Cheers

Look for this section in the HD6 enbeffect file, it's near the top:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 // Darker Nights ( Night Keypress 1+Pageup/down, Night, Day )
// Only uses these values if "#define HD6_DARKER_NIGHTS" does not have '//' infront

// keypress 1,2: night, day night, day
float4 uctbrt1 = float4( 0.30, 0.30, 0.80, 1.00 ); // Brightness Night, Day (Alters before contrast adjustment)
float4 uctbrt2 = float4( 0.30, 0.30, 0.90, 1.00 ); // Brightness Night, Day (Alters after contrast adjustment)
float4 uctcon = float4( 0.90, 0.90, 1.00, 1.00 ); // Contrast Night, Day, v11.2: 1.0, 0.97, 0.85
float4 uctsat = float4( 0.20, -0.80, 0.75, 1.00 ); // Saturation Night, Day (Remember if using HD6_COLORSAT_DAYNIGHT that will also be desaturating the night)

// keypress 4: Saturation

 

The bolded and underlined segment is what affects nights there. The numbers to the right of them affect days.

 

For brightness, higher equals lighter (try it in 0.05 increments at a time, don't make it too drastic or you'll burn your eyes out!).

For Contrast higher equals darker.

For Saturation higher equals a little darker (doesn't seem as much for night as when you change saturation elsewhere) but it does bring colour out more (like moonlight reflections and lights, etc) I plan to implement this effect better in a later update once I've experiemented with it a bit more.

 

If you increase brightness here you'll want to make sure to try and keep contrast and saturation in check. You'll also need to watch your pointlighting where you can (which is where I find it gets tricky).

 

Once you're happy there then start messing with the ENBseries ini. I find using enbeffect as your base then tweaking it with enbseries.ini works out best. If you just want a slight bump you can just alter DirectLightingIntensityNight, DirectLightingCurveNight, AmbientLightingIntensityNight, or AmbientLightingCurveNight within the enbseries.ini.

Therefore if you are rendering at 1080p, that's 1080p worth of pixels it has to analyze. And that's why it is so cheap. But all it does is blur the edge, it doesn't actually do anything to fix the edge like in MSAA, SSAA, or CSAA.
MSAA renders the object at a much bigger size than what you see, samples edges from several points on the object (variable by MSAA size 2,4,8,16), shades it once, and then down-sized to the final image. Because of the way this is done, MSAA renders way more than 1080p pixels because it works on objects much larger than what you see. And the number of points you pick (2,4,8,16) will determine how much memory bandwidth it uses. That's why you see 8x MSAA memory eating upwards to 300-400MB of memory on a 1080p screen!! Never go past 4x MSAA on 1080p, it's unnecessary to go higher because the more pixels you are able to draw, the less diagonal effect you have.
Example (think of top image as 1080p and bottom as 480p)
495
SSAA renders the object as at a much,much bigger resolution than what you see. So if you had SSAA on at 8x. It uses the same sample technique as MSAA. Then for 1080p rendering, your graphics card would have to draw 4x+ the amount of pixels before downsizing it to 1080p. Sure it looks the best out of the three and the memory bandwidth kill is the same as MSAA, but the fill-rate on your graphics card will be saturated and that's why you get awful performance at anything other than 2x.
Just thought I'd throw that piece of knowledge out there smile.gif
Also an update on my Candlelight Toggle mod, I've got the toggle to work. You can turn it on and off at will. Durations still work, going to make an infinite version. I'm looking into making it a shout-like spell so that you can tap to dispel or hold to recast (I'm not sure if it will be implemented).
If you want the Candlelight Toggle, I'll be uploading it on the Nexus in the next few hours and will let you know on here.

+Rep for fxaa, msaa and ssaa info. I learnt something today! smile.gif

Great stuff pal, really spot on Indeed! +rep!
I really don't want to be messing too much with the ENB I just want the night time to be closer to the vanilla Skyrim so Hopefully I wont have to change too much smile.gif

Seems I only had to adjust the first line of code a couple of times to get it to where I wanted!

Tried a couple mods. I got a bit bored. Don't know what to do, I've been trying to avoid doing the main quest.
