Description:

Comprehensive Overhaul for the weather in Morrowind, Solsthiem, and beyond.

The README mentions that tweaks need to be made to cloud speed (or else they move *really* fast!), see below for those....

Usage Notes:

The Particles/meshes/raindrop.nif and Particles/textures/tx_raindrop_01.dds files provided by this mod must be deleted, or else rain drops will be missing in-game.

Read the included Readme.txt file for information on the available installation choices. If you're going for a "Total Overhaul" setup, install the files from the "Skies - .IV" folder. If doing a more vanilla-friendly setup, choose files from the "Skies - Vanilla" folder. The other choices are optional (Moons) or variants of other mods (Skies - AoF Skies). Feel free to try those out and see how they look.

Be sure to apply the extra configs that are required for this mod.

Extra Configs:

Below are the values that need to be changed and their default settings:

fallback=Weather_Clear_Cloud_Speed,1.25
fallback=Weather_Cloudy_Cloud_Speed,2

fallback=Weather_Thunderstorm_Cloud_Speed,3
fallback=Weather_Rain_Cloud_Speed,2

fallback=Weather_Ashstorm_Cloud_Speed,7
fallback=Weather_Blight_Cloud_Speed,9
fallback=Weather_Snow_Cloud_Speed,1.5

And the edited values are below:

fallback=Weather_Clear_Cloud_Speed,0.25
fallback=Weather_Cloudy_Cloud_Speed,0.4
