What should I name my forthcoming ENB / Weather Mod?

Post by TheHermit on Fri Oct 27, 2017 3:56 am

Hi guys, I'm having trouble settling on a name for my forthcoming ENB w/ReShade & Weather Mod (released when it's ready)
From more than a dozen names, I've narrowed it down to 4. They are:


  1. Helios
  2. Alchemy
  3. Atom
  4. Fahrenheit


I like them all, but I want your help in deciding on the name -- so I've made this poll.

In the past, my ENBs have been loosely named after metals or chemicals (RUST & COBALT)
I wasn't sure if I should follow this trend or try something different.

Helios was listed, not because of Helios One, but because Helios, for those that don't know, was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology.
It was an added bonus that the name was also used in New Vegas for the solar plant.

Alchemy was listed because I've always found this esoteric tradition fascinating and own many antique books on the subject.
There is also a loose connection to my pseudonym, The Hermit. The idea was that this next ENB would be a product of alchemical processes.
A little geeky, I admit.

Atom was listed simply because it fits well into the theme of the game and, surprisingly, hasn't been used as a name for any ENB I've seen for Fallout.

Fahrenheit is probably my least favorite, but has the potential to grow on me if you guys choose it.
I wanted something that was associated with words like heat, climate, desert, boiling, etc.
Plus there's also that link to that great dystopian noval, Fahrenheit 451.

Okay, so now that a brief explanation of the names is out of the way, here are a couple of screens I took yesterday whilst starting to play around with ideas in-game.
Everything is in early stages.

Spoiler:

Though it may be premature to start choosing names, I want to name it first as it gives me a solid idea of the "spirit" of the ENB, the style, etc.
This was the same with Cobalt and Rust. I had already named them before I started working on them and tried to work to what those names evoked.

So yes, I look forward to seeing the results. I'll run the poll for 7 days before announcing the winning vote.

Unfortunately I can't see your pictures, my internet refuses to load them. So i have to delay my vote for the moment... I loved your previous enb and I am very excited by this new one! Keep up the good work.

Okay, so sadly only 6 votes have been submitted even though 200+ people have viewed it. Just thought it’d make for a bit of community involvement instead of constant ‘share a tune’ non-posts. Anyway, as it stands, I’ll be calling the ENB Helios if the voting results don’t change by tomorrow. Im also, hopefully, going to be including several other features in the weather mod such as a bespoke version of Simple Street Lights, Removal of Interior Fog, ENB fixes, and *fingers crossed* I’m trying to get on Boris to fix glowing dust storms at night when ENBs are used.

If the glowing issue has been bothering you too, please make yourself heard over at this thread to let Boris know that many of us want this problem fixed.

I really wish I could vote on the name. But I can't seem to see the previews. I am not sure why but I can't. I love your previous enbs so I am sure this one will be great to. I just can't give a good vote without some previews.

I voted Helios, because it's kind of fitting to name an ENB after that ancient god/titan, who made everything visible in daylight by driving his sun chariot over the sky.
At any rate it's a very evocative name.

To see the pictures, just quote TheHermit and copy/paste his imgbox links into your browser. I'm not too sure of the issue with the original post, but this is a workaround for those who wish to see the ENB.

Also, I personally voted for Helios. It fits the ENB and is the best out of the four. While Alchemy sounds unrelated, Atom sounds too generic and so does Fahrenheit, Helios is the most unique.

Good thing you posted just before I sent my post @Corvo , cause I had written that I couldn't see the screenshots aswell. Anyhow, read your post, and tried your "fix" in order to see the pictures, so thanks for the heads up, just right in time.

I voted for Alchemy. It seems the most fitting for me, you said you're ENB will have other feature besides being a simple enb and weather mod, so it will be a mixture of several things, just as alchemy encompass many different things, so for me Alchemy fits rather well, even though there's no "alchemy" per say in Fallout. Though I have to admit, it was a diffcult choice, as Helios and Fahrenheit are good name ideas aswell.

Thanks for involving us in the creation process of your mod @TheHermit , that's real nice of you  Thumbs Up         only saw this thread today, I would have voted sooner otherwise.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the feedback. Although I have a propensity for doing things solely for my own gratification, my ENB presets are very much for the user. RUST was a trial of sorts, COBALT was the successor. Now I want to go that extra mile and create a 'definitive' weather and lighting mod (probably feature creep) to bring FNV into the next-gen and truly stand next to the Skyrim ENBs. Unless anything changes, I'll be going with Helios Smile

As for the images not showing -- this seems to be a problem I only have on GUNetwork. It doesn't seem to like hot-linked images from imgbox. I usually have to wait several minutes in order to view screenshots thread - it takes so long for them to load up. The problem could also be caused by many of us using anti-tracking, adblock and noscript plugins in our browsers.

I managed to load up the images, and it definitely looks very nice! I decided to go with Alchemy, only because the lighting in the Freeside image reminded me a bit of the old Fullmetal Alchemist series. Silly reasoning, I know. But still.

I was thinking Helios, but I couldn't really see any images with any sun glare. I kind of imagine Helios been more associated with something very bright, and this ENB seems a little darker, which I personally prefer.

+1 for Alchemy anyhow.

Hi folks, so the poll is closed and I'm going with the majority vote.

The project shall be named HELIOS Smile

Thank you to all of you who voted.

There is also some great news for ENB Fallout 3/FNV users. After getting on Boris and pestering him about glowing particles such as duststorms, I've finally managed to force his hand and he's released a new and updated ENB binary for FO3/FNV Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

ENBSeries graphic mod / ENBoost patch 0.321

Added particles intensity parameters to fix their brightness at night, fixed hair lighting at night which was not affected by the mod.


Details here.
