Well we’ve finally made it. The weather mods comparison has been requested for quite a while now and here it is. 4 Overhaul comparisons and in the first one we looked at interior lighting mods. If you missed that video, I suggest checking it out first. From my experience, I find it easier to first install interior lighting before moving on to the exterior. For those of you still here, let’s continue.
The mods I am looking at today are: Climates of Tamriel, Vivid Weathers Definitive Edition, Rustic Weathers and Lighting, Dolomite Weathers, Natural and Atmospheric Tamriel, Obsidian Weathers and Seasons and Aequinoctium Weathers and Seasons. Oh I also threw in Vanilla lighting for good measure. Anyway, as you can see, there’s a lot of mods here so get comfortable, grab some food and drink and shut the door because this one, is gonna be TIGHT.
7. Climates of Tamriel
Let’s look at our first mod, Climates of Tamriel. This was the OG ultimate weather mod for Skyrim back in the day but since then it’s had a lot of fierce competition. One thing to note in the comparisons is that COT does not NOT change the vanilla weathers. Which is why you won’t see any distinction between it and vanilla in most scenes. But aside from that it touches up on many aspects including rain, cloud textures, storms, lighting, fog, auroras and also the sun. It also adds lots of new weathers to the game and comes with a few optional plugins to configure darkness as well. Basically it does everything well, and there’s a reason this mod was and still is popular.
