- Removes top screen vignette (darken) effect

Clean UI for NEXT [Nexus Mods]


    had this mod well before the Next update came and it's great! Cleans up the screen and effects quite a bit. I hate scan lines, vignette and abberation altogether! So this is a great mod.
    Thanks Logan Booker for the updated info!

    Chromatic aberration in video games must die.

      I always disable chromatic aberration too. Most annoying effect ever.
