Incase anyone is still looking for a graphic enhancement mod like this, there is one called Bailknight's Graphic Mod at It's just as good if not better than SolarFlair, great eye candy.

This Mod (v1.0) does not work correctly with SoaSE: Entrenchment (v1.041).

So is this compatible with entrenchment 1.041 if I place the files in the program files directory rather than tring to enable it through the mods?

I don't think this mod works with anything anymore, unless your game is patched to 1.05. I've tried it with the vinilla sins and the Entrenchment add-on and it doen't work on neither of them. So their has to be a update for Solarflair for it to work on the newest updates and add-ons. WHICH I HOPE WILL HAPPEN RIGHT.

This hasn't been touched in a year, doesn't even work anymore really unless your doing 7deadlysins, which also only works on v 1.05, as is asking permission is somewhat a lost cause, as it seems the author either doesn't play anymore, or simply doesn't care.

If he doesnt care anymore then I take it he wouldnt care about other people taking the use of the effects for their mod.
