Version 1.1.1
Adjusted effect transition during rain/snow to be more in sync with precipitation
Added options for disabling the effect during rain/snow, useful if you have very high specularity set for enb rain wet surfaces
Version 1.1.0
Added weather support (rain and snow). Off by default, enable it in the ini.


A SKSE64 plugin that dynamically applies glossiness/specularity to characters’ skin, hair, armor, and weapons to make them appear wet when in water and optionally in rain or snow. It works on both the player and NPCs. The character begins to dry after removing himself from the water. Transitions are seamless, and soak/dry times can be adjusted.

Works with ENB wet surfaces and mods that use shaders for wet effects (such as water drip) or change body specular map textures to give actors a more detailed wet look. If you believe the specular effect is too strong, you can reduce it in the configuration (MaxSpecularStrength).


Install with a mod manager or extract to \Data.
