Description

Nevada Skies URWLified is Nevada Skies 0-6-3 that has been URWLified (like URWLNV v5.3). Since then it has evolved a lot, so by now it is much better then URWLNV and the scripting is more reliable then Nevada Skies.Read the entire description for more information.


URWLified is the Nevada Skies from which all the weather schemes are made to look and feel like URWLNV. If you don't know what URWLNV is i can tell you that it is a mod which attempts to make lighting realistic. So all his weather variations (those are quite a lot, 55 to be precise) have been URWLified.


 This mod needs NVSE otherwise it won't work correctly.
 If you use a ENB then the night brightness adjuster won't work cause regular ENB setups disable all  color,  brightness and contrast changes set in Imagespacemodifiers. This is not the case when your  ENB config has  #applygamecolorcorrection enabled, but almost every config has this disabled cause it looks much better.

Also the sunset, sunrise, night, and ofcourse daytime and high noon settings have been edited thouroughly.I also redid most of the clouds to give them that realistic look and for the clear weathers a higher resolution.I also changed the gamesetting fDOFDistanceMult to 1.8 instead of 5 which in turn significantly ups performance of sandstorms.Gave the DOF in the sandstorm a range from 50 to 1000 which results in sharp hands and half way your gun it starts to get blurry.
 Those settings also make sure that the DOF effect does not need to get applied further in the distance (not beyond 1000 game units)which also ups performance, and you cant see that by the way cause the storm obscures the view anyway.I did keep the Nevada Skies feel and in the process tried to made everything as realistic as possible.I've thouroughly tested it and it works like a charm, all the menus work like clockwork.

How to install
Double-click the Fomod after you unzipped the rar file.Ofcourse you have to have FOMM installed otherwise nothing will happen on clicking a Fomod file.Make sure FOMM is not running when you Double-click the Fomod.Then select it and click activate.

What do you need ?
Nothing more then this pack if you use URWLified, i packed it all up in one neat Fomod.DLC plugins are all in the mod. As of the latest version Fellout is not compatible at all anymore, so don't use it together, if you do, don't go complaining on the Nevada Skies thread cause it pretty straightforward what's just been told.The latest version is also no longer Compatible with Ambient Temperature.The weather follows you on fast travel in the latest version just like with Ambient Temperature.I've also redone the weather climate so you have faster rotating weather so it's more or less obsolete anyway.There is a night/interior brightness adjuster integrated in the mod.

Have fun and do not forget to give Yossarian kudos and your endorsement on the nexus !
This mod was originally his mod, not much is left of the original esp, but still it would not exist without him.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I also suggest you alter the lightfade and specular settings for maximum lighting results in the new vegas area by editing falloutprefs.ini, fallout.ini in the my documents/my games directory and fallout_default.ini in the install directory.with the settings below. it will spruce up the entire game by the way. Keep in mind that they go into the display section as shown.

Marcurios ! I'm a big fan. Lol. I loved URWL for NV. And you're doing well with Nskies URWLified. Thanks for making such a great lighting mod. Can't tell you how many ENB Series presets I scrounged through, before I came upon your mod(s). And, can I ask ? Do you plan to update URWL for Skyrim, at all ? :)

Thanks bud, well i never play Skyrim anymore, it's not really my kind of game, i actually regret that i bought it cause i didn't even play it out once. I did have a little fun with it for a while but when half way through i started longing for some Fallout again.
But who knows, i need to mod it a bit cause i think the Creation Kit is going to be used for Fallout 4, so i will probably be modding it in the future, but for now i'm still busy with my mods and some projects too where i'm helping out.

Wanted to say, first off, how much I really appreciate your work. Big fan. I'm commenting because I'm experiencing an odd graphical glitch at certain times of the day (Usually around 8AM), wherein the clouds form a series of polygonal crosses in the sky that divide it into several small circles.
This usually fades away within a few moments, but I'm curious as to what might be causing it, as I am running no other mods that would modify the sky and have installed the package as instructed (and deactivated and reactivated it numerous times to test). Any help is appreciated, and thanks again for all your hard work.

I cannot directly include a URL due to new membership, but if you could go to tinypic.com and add the following extension, there is a screencap of what I mean. /view.php?pic=16ar7tv&s=5

whoa !, i never saw that one before, but i do notice that that does not seem to be a cloudlayer of mine, you sure you hadn't had any other weather mod installed earlier ?
it looks like a leftover from Nevada Skies 0-6-3 or Western Skies, they use a static dome cloudlayer with a few weathers.

No, this mod is to be installed with FOMM originally, but i heard someone say on the Nexus earlier that NMM also installs mods with FOMM scripts OK nowadays, so you can download and then browse with the equivalent of the FOMM package manger from NMM for the file and install it with NMM.
be sure to unpack the zip first, the FOMOD file is zipped in the download together with the readme file.

First I just want to say that I love this mod, it is definitely a must-have! However I am having an issue.

The latest version of URWL'fied (v7.15) seems to cause my game to slow down after about 40 minutes of gameplay. The slowdowns only occur when I am outside, but when I am inside, I get a full 60 fps no matter how long I have been playing. Outside, it will drop to about 40 fps after roughly 40-45 minutes of play, and continue to go down from there as time goes on. Eventually it hits 30 after about an hour and I can't take it anymore so I quit the game, then restart it and it's back to 60 frames again.

I went through a number of mods to see which mod could be causing this, and I narrowed it down to NSkies. I just played for an hour with no slowdowns at all with Nskies deactivated. Any idea why NSkies is causing this slowdown? I googled it and searched everywhere but no one else seems to be having this issue. I didn't have this issue when using v6 or even v7.0, it has only been doing this since the latest update.

seems like you got a memory leak error, has nothing to do with the mod, is a known Fallout problem, you should make sure you have NVSE and the stutter remover and play with the NVSE 4gb fix (ofcourse you need a 64bit OS and 4GB RAM for that).
you're actually lucky that you can play 40 minutes, cause this memory leak usually arises in 5 minutes, that would be far more annoying imo.

punz-n-rozez Aug 5 2013, 5:47pm says:

Yeah I thought of that possibility too. I thought that somehow NSkies was causing it, because it didn't happen when I deactivated the mod. The thing is I am using NVSE, the 4GB eenabler, and the stutter remover. I've reinstalled the game several times. I just have no idea why this is happening and it's driving me insane. Like 2 months ago I was able to play for 2+ hours without any issues.

Anyways, I apologize. I'll re-download this mod and see if there's anything else I can try. Thank you!

Don't sweat it, i had it too once, it's possible to get it running ok, but reinstalling the game usually is a bad idea, once you have it running correct and it starts acting up you should then solve the problem, no matter how long it takes, cause that way you learn how this game responds to tweaking, if you simply reinstall each time you run out of ideas you can start allover again.
We'll find out what your problem is.
But, 715 only has a region override weather changed to respond to a variable to make sure the rain does not show up there when rain is disabled in the menu, you saying that 711 is working OK then ?
Cause that would be mighty strange.
you tried the iNumHWThreads=2 in your ini files under [GENERAL]?
You use the NVSE 4GB Enabler ??
That is the only good one, the only one that works with stutter remover together.

that's not what i ment, i mean if you use 711 now, does it work correct then ?
That way you can determine that it is not the mod that's causing the probelm, troubleshooting is about eliminating possibilities.

Oh, and monitor your vidcard temperature just to be sure, it could be a slowdown from heat because the case/fans is getting dirty or the weather is rather hot.Make sure that your pc can vent it's heat properly.

Hmm, I didn't think to check that since this card has never given me heat issues before, but I'll play for a bit and check.

Also, if it is at all worth mentioning, I am using a bashed patch if you think that might affect anything.

Marcurios Aug 5 2013, 7:31pm replied:

why ?
i hate all those patches and masterupdates, it kinda stupid, if your mods are errorfree then you don't need bashed patches and masterupdates.
That stuff does more harm then good.
But any way, if you decide to use it you should make a new one everytime you update a mod or install a new mod, did you do that ?

punz-n-rozez Aug 5 2013, 7:41pm replied:

Well I read that it helped eliminate errors, shorten your load order, and make the game a bit more stable and crash less when running a lot of mods (I have about 130 plugins in my load order). To be quite honest with you, I was thinking that it might be doing more harm than good lately as well (which is why I brought it up), and I mostly used it just to see what all the fuss was about, and just to become more familiar with the software (Wrye Flash and FNVEdit). But yes, I rebuild the patch every time I add/remove a mod, or change my load order in any way.

Anyways, I don't think heat is an issue. My graphics card peaked at about 75C, which seems hardly abnormal. CPU and motherboard were at about 60C after about 45 minutes of play, again, not unusual.

Guess I'll try playing without the bashed patch and see if that helps.

I really appreciate you taking the time to help btw, even though this issue had nothing to do with your mod. Thank you.

Marcurios Aug 5 2013, 9:51pm replied:

it probably has to do with the amount of mods you have, you any handy in checking for conflicting formids with FNVEdit ?
cause if you know how to check for conflicts, that can give you a hint of what mods are misbehaving and then you can disable those temporarily to see if the problem is gone.
I never use more then 30 mods, and i all check them for conflicts, i never have slowdowns or strange crashes anymore, i used to a lot when i just started out playing and modding this game, but now i know exactly how to solve all my conflicts it runs like butter.

Spent several hours cleaning up conflicts, and I think I found the culprit. I am 90% certain that it was a conflict between Nskies and Interior Lighting Overhaul. I uninstalled ILO, as well as a few other small mods I think I can live without, and the game ran smoother than ever before. I played over 90 minutes with no drop in fps at all.

And yes, I was using the compatibility patch for Nskies with ILO. I think it's because said compatibility patch was made for version 7.1 (at least that's what it says it supports in the description). It would also explain why I had no trouble running ILO prior to installing v7.15 of Nskies. ILO is a great mod, don't get me wrong, but I have to say Nskies takes priority. I refuse to go back to vanilla weathers. ;P

Then again, maybe it isn't ILO. Whatever the case, I'm happy I have my game running properly again. Thanks so much for your help.

Marcurios Aug 7 2013, 7:31am replied:

you're welcome.

I also redid most interiors, so it could very well have been a conflict between those two mods.

but if you put ILO behind nskies in the load order i don't see why it needs a compatibility patch, cause all it does is change interior lighting templates and light settings, so if placed behind nskies it would just override settings that are changed by both mods.

That's a bit of a mystery to me why there is a comp patch, i can only imagine that if you want to change scripts and gamesettings that tou need a patch.
anyway, glad it's working out for you.

cheers !

oh, i suddenly realised what was wrong, the ILO patch is pointing to a non existent master file, that is what is causing you problems.
If you where to edit it with FNVEdit to point to 715 all would be fine again.
Fallout really hates it if it can't find stuff, it gets all weird in such a case.

Ah I see. Well whatever the case, ILO definitely is the problem. I re-installed it (this time without the CP), played for an hour, and the game started slowing down again. Uninstalled it again and now no slowdowns. I can't tell what it is about that mod that my game just doesn't like, but it isn't worth the hassle so, out it goes.

Next Update will have a fix for the raindrops that are sometimes stuck in mid-air after it stopped raining, also the snow and rain at the same time with 2 weathers will be fixed.

A new version of URWLNV is coming soon, it has only 30 weathers, but each weather can be disabled in the climate so you can construct your own climate.

Further more, the version will be fully compatible with ENB and it comes with a ENB version that supports nightvision and all kinds of mods that use Imagespacemodifiers like the Imaginator from MGE and me. So the night brightness adjuster will also work with this ENB config and the ENB so far is looking damn impressive.

Each weather will have unique high-res photographic clouds.

Look at the possibilities of my URWLENB for FO3 for all the features that are going to be included on top of the NV version, so the NV version will be even more powerful then the Fallout 3 version.

There will also be plugins for all DLC's and a plugin for Project Brazil.

Thanks for reading.

ETA end of August 2013.

that's not a bug, the game engine has set these locations as outdoor locations.
I can stop the weather when you enter the lucky 38, that's about all i can do.
It is ofcourse possible to script all these tent locations so that the weather stops there too, but that is an incredible amount of work, and i'm not going to do that.
If you want to, be my guest and send me the esp file.

you can also play the game and at all such locations go into the console and do a getpos x and a getpos y and write them all down in a text document, don't forget to mention in what worldspace it is, that would take you 3 times the length it would take to just play the game, like 300 hours, and then send the document to me, then i can implement a script that disables the weather temporarily at all those points.
I could even probably disable only the rain nifs at those points, so that would solve the problem.
But i myself don't mind this rain at those points, so i'm not going to waste 300 hours on this.
