RealVision ENB by SkyrimTuner

My personal favorite ENB preset and I think by far the best looking. Also has the best performance preset that looks pretty damn as good as the full version.

Agreed. On smaller monitors such as a 16 inch (which I use) you honestly cannot tell the difference between the performance and full versions with the exception of certain low impact (from a performance perspective) featues such as water reflections and water parallux. Even the full versions have less of an impact on performance than certain other ENBs out there that are rich in eye candy and contrast/bloom effects. RealVision also has one of the best supporting communities I have seen on the Nexus.

Wins for ease of entry (install instructions & author/community support) and frequency of updates (almost as fast as Boris, ha ha). With three main options plus full and performance versions, its easy to find a look that's great for you.

It's the one that I keep going back to. Good all round enhances my game without stylising it too much one way or another. :)

I have decided to go with this ENB with the version 2.2.7 of STEP. Since this ENB preset requires CoT, are you able to tell when to install CoT and when to install RealVision starting from 2.D Fixes section on?

Have a look at the Weather Pack. You don't need to install all of the mods but it can be added after your STEP install.

Since this ENB preset requires CoT, are you able to tell when to install CoT and when to install RealVision starting from 2.D Fixes section on?


Once you have finished step 2.D (Fixes), continue with step 2.E (Interface). Before you start with part 2.F (Conflicting Graphics), install the weather mods of Climates of Tamriel and the actual ENB in the following order (as advised by the creator of RealVision)

I highly recommend option B, from RealVision.
  • Project Reality - Climates Of Tamriel V3.1
  • Supreme Storms for Climates of Tamriel 3.1 (optional, but recommended)
  • Climates of Tamriel - Weather Patch (do not use Climates Of Tamriel - Weather Patch - Kountervibe ENB!)
  • RealVision ENB
Once you've installed these weather mods and his ENB you can start the Conflicting Graphics section 2.F. At the end of this section, you'll have to install the lighting mod (again, I highly recommend option B, but if you prefer another option, then I suppose you switch ELFX with RLO)
  • Enhanced Lights and FX 0.4.2 (do not forget to install the SMIM Meshes from ELFX optionals too!)
Detailed information on the installation settings can be found on the RealVision nexus page found here.

The above instructions have partly been copied from that page as well.

Gosh! I installed up to section 2.G already... I guess I'm going to roll back to section 2.E.

Indeed, if using Mod Organizer then you won't have this problem and I highly recommend you to do so.
However, it sounded like he was using NMM so I gave the instructions based on that.

Actually I'm using neither MO nor NMM, just Wrye Bash and Boss.

Hi, since you're providing me with different approaches, let me paste here the conflicts that wrye bash finds out, so we can reason on what the correct install order would be within STEP 2.2.7. 01 - Climates Of Tamriel 3.1    no conflicts 02 - CoT DG patch    no conflicts 03 - CoT DB patch    no conflicts 04 - Supreme Storms for CoT 3.1    no conflicts 05 - CoT Weather patch    no conflicts 06 - ELFX 042
07 - ELFX DG patch    no conflicts 08 - ELFX DB patch    no conflicts 09 - ELFX SMIM Meshes
Based on the above, I can see CoT doesn't have any conflicts, while ELFX main mod and ELFX SMIM have several ones. What do you think? Remember I stopped at G section of STEP (included).

I'm sorry but I cannot help you any further from here as I have never worked with Wrye Bash. I'm used to using Mod Organizer, where you can always decide the installation order of mods, even after you have installed them (by simply dragging them in their appropriate installation priority). I would still highly recommend you to try out Mod Organizer. It would really help you out in the long run and you can even combine it with some functions of Wrye Bash.

Mod Organizer gives you insane flexibility and it also tells you exactly what is overwritten by what. But for now, all I can tell you that ELFX is supposed to overwrite SMIM. For further detail on the installation order I'd highly recommend you to take a look at Neovalen's Skyrim Revisited guide over here. It's has not the exact same set-up as the STEP guide, but it gives you a lot of information about installation orders and such. Since the current guide isn't finished yet, you can also take a look at his older guide over here. It is outdated and not supported anymore though, but it will still give you a good impression on the installation order of certain mods, along with CoT and ENBs.

Thank you Faylon. I will probably try out MO if I will go through this heavy modding again in the future. I'm going to check the link you pasted here, in the meanwhile let's see if anyone else can provide some insight. At the end of the day, I only need to understand whether I can overwrite what ELFX asks for or if I should roll back and install CoT-ELFX-RVENB first and then continue with section F.

Probably after section F. You will want ELFX to overwrite SMIM. CoT shouldn't have any file conflicts so doesn't matter where you put it.  As for RealVision ENB, put it before section F in your install order. If you are using the manual install of RVENB, then also download the particle patch and subsurface scattering optionals and put them in the same position. edit: after installing, check which file conflicts remain. ELFX doesnt neceessarily have to win every conflict.
