  1. This is a beta of [FNV|FO3|FO4|FO4VR|TES5|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERAL|ENDERALSE]LODGen/Edit with terrain LOD meshes and textures generation. This is for experienced mod authors and users that know how to use xEdit, xLODGen or DynDOLOD already. Installation and Setup Download xLODGen beta 97 - based on 4.1.4c Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any Steam, game or mod manager folders or special Windows folders like Program Files. Rename xLODGen.exe to [game mode]LODGen.exe (TES5LODGen.exe for example) or start with command line parameter -fnv, -fo3, -fo4, -fo4vr, -tes5, tes5vr, -sse, -enderal, -enderalse Use -o:"c:\OutputPath\" command line parameter to change where files are generated to, default is the game folder. Then install output as a mod. Do not generate into any game, any mod manager folders or special Windows folder like Program Files x86. Use command line arguments to set the paths to certain directories and files if required. For example: -m:"c:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\" -p:"c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\plugins.txt" -d:"c:\GOG Games\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\Data\" Requirements Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 - Required by LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe and Texconv.exe/Texconvx64.exe. Get matching platform x86/x64 depending on which xLODGen.exe (x86) or xLODGenx64.exe (x64) is used. RTFM and Share Results See the included Skyrim-Occlusion-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions or give feedback in the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread. See the included Terrain-LOD-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the settings for terrain LOD generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions about terrain LOD in this thread for a more in-depth explanation if required and share feedback (with screenshots) about results or problems. These tools generate LOD meshes and textures "exactly" like CK, but not like the meshes and textures which are shipping with the games (they are often manually edited). However, these tools provide more options and higher resolutions (use the x64 version if there are memory errors because you believe you require 4k or higher) and can be updated to add more useful features and options. I did some testing in the different games, but finding the best combinations of options and settings requires lots of testing and are a matter of personal opinion and which game is used, the load order, mods, even different worldspaces probably. That means, I am only able to give generic guidelines and hints to send you off to find and test for yourself and share your results. My main interested is that generations works correctly and without problems for now. Check out the thread xLODGen Terrain Settings Compare. Also refer to any modding guide which has a list of relevant mods close to your load order. The object and tree LOD generation is the same as the current versions of xEdit / xLODGen. Refer to their respective descriptions and explanations. Obviously, users of Skryim/Enderal/Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/EnderalSE continue to use the easier and more comprehensive DynDOLOD for drastically improved object and tree LOD generation and only use xLODGen for terrain LOD (and maybe Occlusion) generation. First Time Here are suggestion to start without going crazy and that should be quick enough to generate: Set quality of meshes for LOD4 to 5 and then +5 for each next level. Or just set levels 8/16/32 to 10. Check protect cell borders (yes it fixes the ugly terrain drops at outer cell borders that still exist in Fallout 4). Use the max vertices setting only if you want to hard limit max file size. In Skyrim Special Edition or Skyrim VR, if you notice terrain briefly flickering when new areas are loading in, set [Display] bEnableLandFade=0 in Skyrim.INI Set Optimize Unseen to off for LOD4 for first generation. Start experimenting with a value of 550 with a quality setting of 10 or lower for LOD32 (used for map) and compare coastlines and file size to other settings. To quickly generate terrain LOD meshes just for the map, check only terrain LOD Meshes, check the Specific Chunk checkbox and set drop down to 32. Leave SW fields empty for complete map or set SW cell coordinates to same values as a *.btr filename to test a specific area with lots of water, river etc. Set texture sizes to 512 for a start. Larger sizes and large world spaces will take a considerable time (like 15 to 30 minutes or more easily). Each higher resolution means quadruple the work. Use DXT1 for diffuse and 565 (DXT1 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition and VRAM is not of concern use BC7. Uncheck mipmaps, raise steepness and Bake normal maps. For now, leave the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma at 0 and 1.0 respectively. It seems that only Skyrim CK and Skyrim SE CK are manipulating the intensity of the textures to adjust for the noise.dds and the god awful "improved" snow shader of Skyrim SE (just turn that thing off, really). If textures seem too dark in the game, brighten the noise.dds instead or vice versa. That way you can get perfectly matching LOD textures that look just like the textures in the loaded cells. For Skyrim a good average color of the noise texture seems to be around #C0. See below for a couple noise texture downloads. If you want to test larger texture sizes, use the chunk option to limit the number of textures that need to be generated. For example, check [x] Specific chunk, leave the drop down empty and set WS to the lower left cell coordinate of an 32x32 area, like 0, 0. It will then generate all textures up to 31,31. Not all worldspaces have their origin at 0,0 so you will have to check already generated meshes/texture filenames for their lower left coordinates. Questions and Feedback Obliviously anything related to terrain LOD should be posted in this thread. Posts related to Occlusion should be made here. Recommended Optionals TES5-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega) TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega) - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots) SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm (Mega) - Entire map from -96,-96 to 95,96 with northern ocean extension. Useful for mod authors. Put in game data folder obviously. Adds back terrain for Skyrim (Tamriel worldspace) at the outer edges so there is no missing terrain meshes/textures when generating terrain LOD for Skyrim. Load as early with lowest priority as possible, so that any other plugins overwriting or adding land records or cells with the same coordinates take precedence. Only required to be loaded when generating terrain LOD. No harm done when loaded in-game but typically the player can not get close to these areas. There are no effects outside the far away added cells. Noise Single color flat noise, Adjusted vanilla noise, HD Terrain Noise Texture SE Examples for Skyrim. Install to game folder like any other texture mod. The noise texture is applied in-game on top of terrain LOD textures, so no effect for LOD generation. Only the red channel is used in case the textures is not a grey channel format. MipMaps are ignored. The textures is tiled 3x3 per LOD quad, e.g. for LOD level 4, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 4 cells, for LOD level 8, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 8 cells and so on. Test-Terrain-Tamriel.7z For testing terrain LOD distances. Plain color terrain LOD textures for Tamriel with coordinates for every LOD quad. Green for LOD 4, yellow for LOD8, blue for LOD 16 and red for LOD 32.
  2. Mod Source: BethINI by DoubleYou Wiki Link BethINI STEP Wiki Link BethINI (pronounced "Bethany") is an attempt to restore decency to the INI configuration files for games created by Bethesda. It currently supports Oblivion, Skyrim, Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and Fallout 4. It arose out of my research into the Skyrim INI files over on STEP. Why You Need This There are many advantages to using BethINI: 1. It automatically reorders your INI files into a sensible order, making them much easier to navigate for manual tweaking. 2. It automatically fixes common errors, including some that can cause CTDs. 3. It automatically detects mods you have installed and makes changes recommended by the mod authors where deemed appropriate. If your mod or a mod you know of requires such support, please contact me, as this is the easiest thing in the world to implement. 4. It's presets are superior in graphical fidelity and performance (95% of the time) to the official presets one can create via the game launcher. 5. It allows for the modification of more settings than is accessible via native game settings, and provides explanation for each setting and what it does. 6. It automatically backs up your INI files. 7. For Skyrim, it automatically configures the Creation Kit to support multiple masters and any installed DLC, if enabled. TL;DR BethINI fixes your INI files and lets you tweak your INI files to improve performance and quality. Installation: BethINI is a portable application. You can run it anywhere. Simply extract and run. Do NOT run through Mod Organizer! Recommended usage: 1. Please do not delete your INI files prior to running this! 2. Run BethINI 3. Mod Organizer users should go to the Setup tab and select the profile they wish to use via the ''INI Path'' setting. Your profiles should be autodetected. It is highly recommended to close Mod Organizer if open. 4. Click Default. This will refresh your INI files to the default state. 5. Original Skyrim ENB users should tick the ''ENB Mode'' checkbox. This does not apply to users who ONLY use the ENBoost portion of ENB. This should be autodetected, so if you are unsure, leave this alone! 6. Click your desired preset. 7. Tick the ''Recommended Tweaks'' checkbox to apply tweaks recommended for all users. 8. Click the Save and Exit button. Testimonials FAQ Q: The program will not load. The cursor spins, but the program does not load and the process is not created. A: Add BethINI.exe to your antivirus exclusion list. Q: Virus! A: False positive. See the VirusTotal report. Q: Should I delete my INI files before running this? A: No! Indeed, it is likely the game launcher shall kill your INI files if you do this! Q: Why is my savegame crashing? A: Not all INI settings can be changed mid-game (e.g., uGridsToLoad). If you used some bad INI tweaks (e.g., Ewi's INIs) on a save, they can cause your save not to work with good INIs. Either copy some of the problematic lines back into your INI, stick the old INIs back, or start a new game. Q: Does it work with ENB? A: Yes! Skyrim users can simply tick the ENB Mode checkbox (should be autodetected) to ensure that all necessary tweaks are applied. ENB users of other games may need to check to make sure that they haven't accidentally disabled any necessary settings (as I currently don't know what settings are necessary for the other games, as I haven't used them. Sorry.) Q: If I use ONLY the ENBoost part of ENB, do I need to tick the ENB Mode checkbox? A: No. Again, this should be autodetected. Q: I get an error when I start the game that says, "failed to initialize renderer." A: Your screen resolution is incorrect. Please change your resolution to one that your monitor supports. Custom resolutions can be manually typed into the Resolution box. Q: I want to go back to the way my INIs were before I used BethINI. Is that possible? A: Simply go to the setup tab and select "Before BethINI" in the "Restore Backup" dropdown.
  3. Discussion topic: Boston Public Library Settlement by pra Wiki Link Allows the ability for the Boston Public Library to be a settlement following clearing the location, rebuilding the precombines for the affected cells and the navmeshes. Notably uses partial form flags to help prevent compatibility issues, which are verified to work correctly. Should load after Previsibines Repair Pack. Small conflict with Clarity's interior fog setting (shouldn't be a big deal). There aren't too many interior cell settlements, and this is a large enough interior location that making a settlement inside makes some sense. This is one of my more favorite interior cell locations, so I like the idea of it becoming a settlement.
  4. Discussion topic: The HD Enhancement Project by Blackwolf24 Wiki Link Retextures creatures. The screens on the mod page look promising.
  5. Discussion topic: This Settlement Does Not Need Your Help - BS Defence Redone by Rcoll Wiki Link Because with all the turrets I've set up, there's no way those raiders stand a chance.
  6. Discussion topic: Baka Wait Anywhere by shad0wshayd3 Wiki Link Allows the player to wait without being forced to sit on furniture.
  7. Discussion topic: QuickTrade by registrator2000 Wiki Link Sometimes it can be a real pain of waiting for the NPCs to say their repetitive phrases just in order to trade gear with them. This provides an option to trade/inventory with an NPC, skipping the talk step. Also, there is an optional file for reducing the NPC greeting distance. I think this is the same type of tweak we use in SSE.
  8. Discussion topic: Quests Tags - Factions and radiants and more by SystemLordBhaal, Aogara Wiki Link Adds tags to quests for the different faction related quests and similar. This mod require DefUI if you want icons.
  9. Discussion topic: Quest Tags Redux by ThePrinceOfHell Wiki Link Test against Quests Tags - Factions and radiants and more
  10. Discussion topic: Legendary Mutation Messages Fix - Cut Content Restored by Crash Wiki Link This restores the additional information to the messages describing the mutation when a legendary enemy mutates. No conflicts with anything on our list. Should be an easy add.
  11. Discussion topic: QuickTrade Redux by Dylbill Wiki Link Test as a replacement for Quicktrade, as there are a few minor bugs with it that this appears it might fix.
  12. Discussion topic: Organized Workbench Menu by pra Wiki Link Instead of all the various workbenches clogging up a single menu, this utilizes Settlement Menu Manager to categorize the different kinds of workbenches. This makes it easy to see the different versions of workbenches. There is a Synthesis patcher "WorkbenchOrganizer" that allows it to scan and add for any mod added workbenches (e.g., the variations of the Nuka Mixer soda machines added by Workshop Rearranged). There is no need to install the DLC patches when using the Synthesis patcher, as it will add them automatically.
  13. Discussion topic: Corpse Collision by Moogletron Wiki Link
  14. Discussion topic: TexGen by Sheson Wiki Link
  15. Discussion topic: Nuka Cola Swap by DoubleYou Wiki Link Nuka Cola Swap adds more variety to your Nuka Cola looting experience. Adds new empty Nuka Cola bottles for the other Nuka Cola flavors, and redistributes these throughout the game using Base Object Swapper. Swaps all full Nuka Cola bottles randomly with all the other flavors in a reasonably balanced manner using Base Object Swapper. The leveled list for Nuka Cola vending machines now has the Nuka World flavors and empty bottles added in a reasonably balanced way. You are more likely to find empty bottles, so that offsets the higher spec Nuka World flavors very well.

  18. Discussion topic: The Missing Nukalurk Recipe Book by BenRierimanu Wiki Link
  19. Discussion topic: DLC Timing UFO4P Patch by VishVadeva50 Wiki Link While checking conflicts, I saw this mod needed a patch, to which I found that VishVadeva50 has already provided for us as an esp replacement.
  20. Discussion topic: DLC Timing by Jonx0r Wiki Link This looks like a no brainer, and from the author of Wyrmstooth, so I'm certain it's high quality.
  21. Discussion topic: Automatically Lowered Weapons by pauderek Wiki Link Poet recommends this instead of Lowered Weapons, as he says that mod can cause crashes in some cases. I actually used this mod during my last playthrough (mistook it for the other tbh), so I can vouch for it.
  22. Discussion topic: Fallout 4 AI Overhaul by SpiderAkiraC Wiki Link From the same mod author that created AI Overhaul SSE.
  23. Discussion topic: Power Armor Ownership Fix by Selenarious Wiki Link Makes "stolen" power armor not stolen anymore. Also has an option to disable the glitchy animation of walking around the power armor to insert the fusion core.
  24. Discussion topic: Who's The General - Minutemen Quest Cleanup by Glitchfinder Wiki Link Preston has been convincing sole survivors to destroy the Minutemen for a long time with his constant pestering. I would avoid Sanctuary like the plague just to avoid him constantly giving me quests. This mod looks like it might fix this. It also has a patch for Keep Radiants in the Commonwealth.
  25. Discussion topic: RAW INPUT - The Ultimate Mouse Sensitivity Fix by IceKK Wiki Link
