Discussion thread:
Vivid Clouds and Fogs - Vanilla and Climates of Tamriel by Mangaclub
Wiki Link
 

As the Release of Vivid Clouds & Fogs 2.0 it supports now Climates of Tamriel as well so i wanted to raise your attention to the Stand alone version of it (since its also shipped in Vividian ENB)
because the stand alone version is updated more frequently.
----
What does it do?
1. Replaces almost all Vanilla and Climates of Tamriel Cloud textures with High resolution textures.
2. Replaces all Mountain Fog textures with High Resolution textures.
3. Replaces all Groundfogs to stop overblooming and looking more like real fog
4. Replacing all Firesmokes to actually look like a damn fire! :D
5. Replaces all Steams from Dwemer ruins and robots, waterfalls, steams found in the vulcanic regions, aso.

ENB Optimized
All Textures are made with ENB compatibility in mind. That means they produce proper
Cloudshadows, Cloudedges and are mostly not pre tinted like the Vanilla clouds and fog textures.

Do you optimize your textures too?

you cant really optimize clouds without issues but I think manga got away with DXT5.

I would highly recommend not optimizing any sky textures, some may argue otherwise.

Mixed with Vividian ENB, these are really spectacular. I'm sure they would be with most ENBs. This could even be put in STEP as a standalone mod.

So I tried it for a while, and in the end had to uninstall it. I assume it's really meant to be used with ENB, because in vanilla game the textures are just blurry, and I ended up going back to the original CoT clouds :( That obviously doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the mod, though.

Blury?! well what it can be it that COT messes the clouds up without ENB like it usually does becasue it has a too high cloud brightness. In the final version i will include COT Weather patches that fix those over bright clouds to a reasonable level. Heres a beta link for you to try out: Load it after COT and any other weather mod what affects COT, that way the Cot clouds will look good also without enb.

Too bad I deleted the few comparison screenshots I took. I'll have to do it again to show you what I didn't like.

I use the CoT Weather Patch btw.

Eh, I can't find any suitable place and weather where I could take at least half decent screenshots to illustrate the "problem".

The plugin just makes sky extremely bright in my game, so it's not making it any better.

 

I think it's just a case of different style rather than a real problem of any kind. Just disregard my bitching ::D:
