Skyrim Special Edition Mods Bring Better Lighting And HD Textures

The latest mods to hit Skyrim Special Edition changes the game’s lighting and enhances the graphics. Ultimately, if you want better lighting and 4K graphics in your modded game, I think that these mods are worth checking out.

The first mod on this list is by modder –JawZ–, and it enhances the lighting in Skyrim Special Edition. The mod places lighting sources appropriately to their labeled name. This mod essentially makes a place look much different, while at the same time fixing casting issues on the landscape and exteriors.

The mod also comes with the “Just-In-Time” lighting script. However, I should note that this mod does not work well with other lighting mods like Realistic Lighting Overhaul, Enhanced Lights and FX, Improved Hearthfire Lighting SE, and Dynamic Shadows for Skyrim.

You can get this mod by heading over to NexusMods.

The second mod on this list comes in by Artem1s. Standing as a simple mini-mod that adds smoke to torches and candles, the mod is more of an aesthetic mod than one to challenge players. The smoke torch mod works for players, NPCs, wall-mounted torches, candles and companions.

It is noted by the modder that the mod shouldn’t impact frame-rate too much, and stands to be negligible to moderate when too much stuff appears onscreen. Moreover, you can check out the mod and how it looks in dark places.

The video above comes in by Ultimate Immersion, while the mod itself can be downloaded over on NexusMods.

The last mod on this list comes from Elecgs, who brings an HD 4K and 2K version of the Sky Haven Temple. The mod enhances the environment and changes how the temple looks in terms of how detail the textures appear.

Sitting in as an immersion mod, you will only find better looking stuff when traversing through this mod. You can see all the enhancements by looking through the images below.
