for Skyrim Special Edition


Rain Splashes

  • Rain impact splash effects appear on most uncovered surfaces during rain.
  • Ambient, exterior rain sound effects can be heard from inside.
  • [PC] If you are unable to see the splash effects, you may need to go into your skyrimprefs.ini (Documents\My Games\Skyrim) and increase the value of iMaxDesired under [Particles] by increments of 50 until they show up.

Shooting Stars

  • Shooting stars aka fragments of Aetherius appear in various sizes and fall from various positions in the sky at night (8:30pm to 6:00am). The general direction they fall in will change on a monthly basis.
  • Meteor showers (shooting star frequency increased) are guaranteed to occur during certain nights of the year. The dates they occur on coincide with the actual meteor shower dates of Earth.
