Enhanced Weather is the next generation of photorealistic weather mods. Unlike most other such mods available, it merely adds to, instead of replacing, Oblivion's default weather system, resulting in a seamless blend of both vanilla and new weathers, as well as some unique features.

Enhanced Weather has been coded from the ground up to give a more immersive and life-like weather system, and much of its work is invisible, making sure that the weather 'just feels right'. With it, there is little in the game weather-wise that feels jarring or wrong, and the weather acts as it does in the real world: you can get long spells of hot weather with showers in between or changeable weather that can't make up its mind or just plain nice weather that is nice to relax in.

Enhanced Weather has many new and unique features designed with the user in mind. These include a light weight seasonal weather script, photorealistic textures, around 30 new perfected weathers, and user customisable night luminance levels, be it darker or brighter, without the need for separate plugins.

Features:

* Enhances Oblivion's default weathers with around 30 new weathers, all tweaked to perfection.
* Enhanced climatic weather system.
* An all-new seasonal weather system - get snow in Frost Fall etc.
* Enhanced Nights, a system for customizable night light levels, through OBSE and an ini file.
* SI support, to enhance the weather of the Shivering Isles with around 80 weathers.
* HDR tweaks, to lessen the 'nuclear dawn'.
* Darker Nights plugins for those who don't have OBSE.
* Enhanced Nights for SI
* Timescale-bound weather, so the weather works at the same speed as your day.
* Enhanced Seasons, a feature for improving the seasonal feel of the game.
* User customisable weather transition speeds for both Tamriel and SI.
