SSE : Light Level Adjustments

 

THE PRIMARY CONTROL BANKS

Upon arrival in the CLARALUX TESTING FACILITY you will be facing a wall of controls.

They are color coded for quick visual understanding.

GREEN = Quick and Safe changes that can be made on the fly in the CLARALUX TESTING FACILITY

YELLOW = Preset Selections (more to come)

RED = The RESET switch.


LIGHT LEVEL :

  • Each subset of lights has 10 in-game settings, controllable here by pulling the chain.
  • Lights will appear differently depending upon your weather mod and other conditions (including potentially ENB settings).  In other words, a LIGHT LEVEL setting of 3 may be perfect for vanilla weather, but too dark for CLIMATES OF TAMRIEL.
  • LIGHT LEVEL controls both brightness and radius. Higher values are yield brighter and wider lights.

LIGHT VARIANCE :

  • Adds an organic effect randomizing the LIGHT LEVEL within this range.
  • Higher is a wider range.  For instance, if you’ve chosen a LIGHT LEVEL of 5 and a VARIANCE of 2, you will see lights with LIGHT LEVELS between 3 and 7.
  • Great option for a less uniform look.
  • A setting of 0 maintains a single LIGHT LEVEL across all LIGHT SUBSETS.

GLOW SIZE :

  • A “haze/glow” that surrounds all lights with 10 sizes available.
  • Often helpful when using the “mist” setting from a compatible ENB
  • Can be disabled via this pull-chain
  • A Higher value yields a wider glow radius.


GLOW SIZE VARIANCE :

  • Adds an organic effect randomizing the GLOW SIZE within this range.
  • Higher is a wider range.  For instance, if you’ve chosen a GLOW SIZE of 5 and a VARIANCE of 2, you will see glows with GLOW SIZES between 3 and 7.
  • Great option for a less uniform look.
  • A setting of 0 maintains a single GLOW SIZE across all LIGHT SUBSETS.

RANDOMIZE SETTINGS :

  • You have the option to allow CLARALUX to choose settings for you.  This feature may help you get a better understanding on how certain LIGHT LEVELS, LIGHT VARIANCE and GLOW settings will appear against your chosen weather mod.
  • The current settings will be displayed briefly in the upper left corner.
  • If you’ve seen a combination of values that you like, simply walk away from the CONTROL PANEL.  The last settings shown will be applied.

ADJUST DAYTIME LIGHT LEVEL :

  • Day Lighting gives the illusion that the lights are still casting some illumination during the day, which is nice especially in overcast weather or in shadows.
  • Day Lighting allows 4 sizes and can be disabled via this switch

DAYLIGHT VARIANCE :

  • Adds an organic effect randomizing the LIGHT LEVEL within this range.
  • As above, higher is a wider range.
  • Great option for a less uniform look.
  • A setting of 0 maintains a single LIGHT LEVEL across all LIGHT SUBSETS.

RESET LIGHTS:

  • Reset to the CLARALUX defaults
