Skyrim has quite a few object meshes that have their shaders or blending properties set incorrectly. As a result, when using ENB many of these objects look buggy or react to an incorrect category in enbseries.ini; for example, the intensity of whitewater foam might be set by the intensity of [FIRE] instead of [PARTICLE], most likely resulting in bright foam at night. The aim of this little patch is to fix all these inconsistencies so that the affected objects react to a correct category, whenever possible. In addition to that, I have also adjusted a few additional game objects hoping that they will thus work better with ENB.
As of now, there is a separate download for subsurface scattering patch.
The mod should be compatible with all texture replacers, but no guarantees are given.
Feel free to distribute the files with your preset, no need to ask for my permission. Also, do tailor the contents to your needs, i.e. remove components you don't want.SPECIAL EDITION ADD-ON CHANGELOG
