  1. I will keep this post brief. Make use of the Help buttons and hover over settings. Do not hesitate to ask questions and provide feedback. This is early ALPHA to test things and iron out bugs. Certain things may be incomplete, not work as expected or change considerably between versions. Read the documentation included in the Standalone archive. In case of error messages, click "Help for this message" if available. Ask questions (also about 3rd party mods) or report any problems or issue in this thread only since any question or problem can only be properly answered or addressed by the developers. If making posts or reporting errors, upload/paste these files (if they exist) to a file or text sharing service: ..\DynDOLOD\bugreport.txt ..\DynDOLOD\Logs\[DynDOLOD|TexGen]_[TES5|ENDERAL|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERALSE]_log.txt (truncate large log files to the entire last meaningful generation) ..\DynDOLOD\Logs\[DynDOLOD|TexGen]_[TES5|ENDERAL|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERALSE]_Debug_log.txt If issue involves LODGen upload/paste ..\DynDOLOD\Logs\LODGen_[TES5|ENDERAL|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERALSE]_[Worldspace]_log.txt If the option "Copy this message to clipboard" is available, copy and paste the text instead posting a screenshot. Consider search for the text of the error message to find similar questions and answers. Requirements DynDOLOD Standalone 3.00 Alpha-44 (Mega) DynDOLOD Resources 3.00 Alpha-12 (Mega) for Skyrim/Enderal or DynDOLOD Resources SE 3.00 Alpha-13 (Mega) for Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/Enderal SE Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 For dynamic LOD: SKSE, SKSE64, SKSEVR and PapyrusUtil, PapyrusUtil SE, PapyrusUtil VR or DynDOLOD DLL For grass LOD: A warm precache from No Grass In Objects. See next post for details. For Majestic Mountains: Majestic Mountains LOD Pack for DynDOLOD 3. Obviously do not install LOD meshes from older versions made for DynDOLOD 2.x. Installation Install the requirements as usual. Install the Core Files from either DynDOLOD Resources or DynDOLOD Resources SE depending on the used game version. Typically overwrite any files or refer to Load/Overwrite Orders. Install other options as desired. Unpack the DynDOLOD Standalone archive into a new empty 'DynDOLOD' directory that is outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', User, Documents, Desktop, Download and also not in SteamApps, game or any mod manager folders. If the tools are started without setting a Game Mode with a command line argument (-tes5 for Skyrim, -sse for Skyrim Special Edition etc.), a message window will prompt for the desired Game Mode. Since TexGen now generates billboards do not install any 3rd party billboards. LOD Generation Use TexGen to generate object LOD textures and tree/grass LOD billboards into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod. Use DynDOLOD to generate object LOD (includes grass LOD if enabled), tree and optional dynamic LOD into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod.

  2. DynDOLOD beta for Skyrim Special Edition, Skyrim VR and Enderal SE | Skyrim/Enderal | What is DynDOLOD? | DynDOLOD FAQ DynDOLOD is the advanced but also easier version of xLODGen for object and tree LOD generation. It is for experienced users that can RTFM and know how to mod. Start by reading the Quickstart.html in the Standalone download. It is fully feature compatible with the Skyrim version. This is called beta because Skyrim Special Edition is still plagued by mods triggering large reference bugs. Until that can be easily resolved there is no pro-active testing and support of mods. As always users are asked to provide feedback and report compatibility issues with mods. What's New? Starting with DynDOLOD 2.95 the Steam version of Enderal SE is supported. Start the tools with the -enderalse command line argument. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.90 the mod Enderal SE is supported. Start the tools in Skyrim Special Edition mode with the -sse command line argument, the mod will automatically be discovered. Use DynDOLOD Resource SE. install the required billboards (see manual). Install Papyrus Util SE or DynDOLOD DLL. SKSE64 and SkyUI are already requirements for Enderal SE / included in the Steam version. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.70 the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data of cell records can be update/generated. The data is used to disable distant occluded object and terrain LOD meshes behind other terrain LOD meshes for better performance. See included Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual.html "TVDT - Occlusion Data" section. Check the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread for more information, questions and feedback. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.48 both TexGen and DynDOLOD can now export textures with BC7 compression. They are used by default. If there is trouble with BC7 somehow or the external tool TexConv being denied access by the OS, try switching back to BC1/BC3. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.45 there is an alternative DynDOLOD DLL that can be used instead of PapyrusUtil for the optional dynamic LOD. Required Skyrim SE and Skyrim VR DynDOLOD Standalone 2.96 beta (Mega) DynDOLOD Resources SE 2.88 beta (Mega) - Make sure to use matching or higher version of DynDOLOD Standalone. Vanilla Skyrim LOD Billboards from TES5LODGen, Indistinguishable Vanilla Tree Billboards, Indistinguishable Billboards for Skyrim Special Edition or Seamless Billboards. The optional dynamic LOD requires SKSE64 or SKSEVR for the used game version and either DynDOLOD DLL or PapyrusUtil SE/VR The optional DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM requires SkyUI for Skyrim Special Edition or SkyUI VR for Skyrim VR 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 DynDOLOD.exe/TexGen.exe (x86) or DynDOLODx64.exe/TexGenx64.exe (x64) is used. LODGen.exe will print an explanatory message in case it is missing. Texconv.exe will fail with error C0000135 or complain about missing DLL. Generate from scratch if updating from older version. By default this will generate a DynDOLOD.esm and a DynDOLOD.esp to work around well known game engine bugs. Read the included ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_SSE.html ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_TES5VR.html for more information, explanations and the different options of the DynDOLOD patcher and in the DynDOLOD MCM regarding the use of large references in the game. Default settings will make a best compatibility and performance effort based on current INI settings. DynDOLOD dynamic LOD works correctly with large references and there are no issues with the vanilla game. However, in case ESP are used that modify large references there is nothing to be done to stop the flickering other than disabling the large references atm. There might be more compatibility settings or patching in the future. Generally, installation and generation is the same as with Skyrim. Skyrim SE/VR BETA - What to test Test that things generate as expected with whatever plugins in the load order. Test that the dynamic LOD works as intended. Test things work right with plugins adding new worldspaces. I only did brief testing with a couple mods. Things should work fine with paid mods and ESL flagged ESP, report all oddities. Mod testing is limited, if things are out of place or have wrong LOD, report with screenshots, form ids etc. so rules for mods can be updated. Because of the need to have an ESM for things to work properly, there is a chance that some records have to copy as "underwrite" into the ESM and as normal overwrite into the ESP at the same time. The DynDOLOD.esm should never have any unflagged ESP as a master and only get its records/data from masterfiles (including flagged ESP). Post a report with log in case the DynDOLOD.esm has an unflagged ESP as master. LOOT typically will let you know one way or another (reporting cyclic interaction or crash for example). Do not use such plugins for anything as they are broken. Also check final load order in the game mod menu, as it will enforce the load order. Post error reports with entire contents (not just the last couple lines) of ..\DynDOLOD\bugreport.txt (if it exists) and ..DynDOLOD\Logs\DynDOLOD_[GAMEMODE]_log.txt or a screenshot of the error. Use pastebin or file service if files can not be attached. Skyrim VR Notes I do not own Skyrim VR, so testing and support is limited and made on a best effort basis. Everything from Skyrim SE applies to Skyrim VR. See ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_TES5VR.html as it points out the differences to Skyrim SE to the best of my knowledge. -TES5VR command line, but uses all of SSE configs and settings. Install DynDOLOD Resource SE as is. There is no need to delete scripts in case generation of dynamic LOD is not selected. Other new stuff 2.44 Starting with 2.44 there is now full ESL and ESPs flagged as ESL support for Skyrim SE - based on the latest xEdit updates. Added back proper support for new worldspaces added by ESPs. Added support for external Billboard NIFs to allow for different type of "2D" tree LODs done in object LOD. See DynDOLOD\Docs\trees.ultra\DynDOLOD-Trees.html for full explanation how to use. Enabled Racemenu NiOverride support for Glow LOD Windows Other new stuff 2.36 Some of the install options (Whiterun and Solitude Exterior etc.) of DynDOLOD Resources SE 2.36 do not install plugins anymore. Instead the options install patch files used by DynDOLOD.exe. When LOD is generated, the former plugin data is merged into the DynDOLOD plugins directly. Other new stuff 2.37 Worked around bugs present in paid mods, so Homestead works fine now. Added proper support for Legacy of the Dragonborn SSE 4.x - it shows on the map now, Guild buildings visible from inside Solitude and other improvement and optimizations. Fixed Wyrmstooth problems as reported by Sandman53 Other new stuff 2.38 improved paid mods and ESL support fixed no model found issue reported by mtreis86 and others reworked plugin detection in papyrus scripts Other new stuff 2.40 Checks for SKSE and PapyrusUtil are automatically disabled in case dynamic LOD is not generated.

  3. DynDOLOD for Skyrim and Enderal 2.3x - 2.8x minor version update post | Major version update Post | Skyrim Special Edition / Skyrim VR / Enderal SE Important This update includes updated papyrus scripts in DynDOLOD Resources 2.45 that require a DynDOLOD.esp generated by DynDOLOD Standalone 2.45 or higher. Do not mix with older versions. If an existing save is updated, follow the "clean save" cycle: First deactivate DynDOLOD from MCM, wait for deactivation message, go into interior, check MCM DynDOLOD is still deactivated, save, exit game. Remove old DynDOLOD.esp, remove old meshes/skse/textures and uninstall old DynDOLOD Resources, which includes the old papyrus scripts Start game, load last save, wait a bit, save again. Install new DynDOLOD Resources 2.45 which includes the new papyrus scripts. Generate LOD. Install the output with the new DynDOLOD.esp and the new generated LOD. Enable the new DynDOLOD.esp. Start game, load the last save, go outside. DynDOLOD should initialize by itself, else activate from MCM. Follow the same procedure for Skyrim SE even though there are no papyrus scripts. What's New? Starting with DynDOLOD 2.70 the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data of cell records can be update/generated. The data is used to disable distant occluded object and terrain LOD meshes behind other terrain LOD meshes for better performance. See included Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual.html "TVDT - Occlusion Data" section. Check the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread for more information, questions and feedback. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.55 the Steam version of Enderal is supported. Use -enderal command line argument. See included Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual.html "Enderal" section in "Custom Settings for Specific Mods" Starting with DynDOLOD 2.45 there is an alternative DynDOLOD DLL that can be used instead of PapyrusUtil for the optional dynamic LOD. Starting with DynDOLOD Resources 2.44 for Skyrim the Whiterun Exterior, Solitude Exterior and the Desync Bird of Prey plugins have been replaced with *.patch files. The data that used to be in the plugins is now added to DynDOLOD.esp when LOD is is generated in case the *.patch files have been installed. Fixed bug with generating object LOD for Bruma Always output data files as UTF8 without BOM Better performing papyrus scripts thanks to pointers from Borgut1337. Better support for reading any text/ini file from BSA. Fixed a bug with supporting mods that add new cells beyond borders, reported by Kelmych. Hopefully fixed all of the out of memory errors when creating texture atlas (mainly happened for SSE). DynDOLOD.exe now tries to ignore and report wild edits that add floating objects above Bleakwind Basin at cell 0, 0 of Tamriel. I would be interested in feedback, especially when it got it right with the mods name, so i can verify the parameters of the wild edits to refine the detection. DynDOLOD.exe will now warn if it encounters deleted references. It helps me to remember to clean mods. Lots of code maintenance in xEdit carried over, thanks to Zilav being productive and lots of updates in LODGen as well for stuff happening in the background. See changelog below. There is no need to update LOD generated by earlier versions just because the tools have been updated. Consider updating or generating LOD from scratch in case you notice missing LOD for the mods listed below or if a problem that was affecting you was fixed. Skyrim SE users might enjoy this video by WazaLang - even if you know how to generate 3D LODs already, just for views or the mixing of different tree mods for great results. The instructions work all the same with DynDOLOD standalone 2.30 or higher and DynDOLOD Resource SE 2.30 or higher. Bruma, see this post and this thread If you want to generate (tree) LOD for the new worldspace, you will need to edit ..DynDOLOD\Edit Scripts\DynDOLOD\DynDOLOD_[GAMEMODE]_worldspace_ignore.txt and remove/change the line "BSHeartland (Tamriel) - bsheartland.esm". Just adding an X in front would be enough for it to show in the world selection drop down again. Skyrim SE or Skyrim VR, see DynDOLOD Skyrim SE/VR BETA DynDOLOD Standalone 2.96 (Mega) for Skyrim, Enderal, Skyrim SE and Skyrim VR DynDOLOD Resources 2.88 (Mega) for Skyrim and Enderal - Make sure to use matching or higher version of DynDOLOD Standalone.

  4. 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 84 - based on 4.1.3h Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any game and Steam folders or special Windows folders like Program Files. (Pro users can merge with existing xEdit installation. Make sure to overwrite older LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe TexConv.exe/TexConvx64.exe in Edit Scripts. All other files with the same filenames are the same as the latest version of xEdit.) 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. Do not generate into any game or any mod manager folders. 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 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.
  5. FO4LODGen by Ehamloptiran, Zilav and Sheson Static objects LOD generator tool for Fallout 4 After one and a half years, Zilav and I finally managed to incorporate FO4LODGen fully into the latest xEdit.exe builds posted to WIPz TES5Edit on Afk mods. However, get the latest xLODGen - beta with terrain LOD, this is were the most recent LOD development happens. Users of xEdit and FO3LODGen/FNVLODGen/TES5LODGen/SSELODGen will feel right at home. After downloading and extracting the archive rename executable to FO4LODGen.exe or FO4LODGenx64.exe Start FO4LODGen.exe with the command line parameter -o:"c:\Output" to set the output folder. This will make it easier to create BA2 archives, to avoid blurry textures because of loose texture files. I assume Fallout 4 modders know all about this issue with loose texture files, the involved INI settings and ENBoost. Hover over the options of the FO4LODGen window to see hints what each setting does. If a texture atlas is not created it will use the vanilla texture atlas (Commonwealth and SanctuaryHillsWorld are supported atm, ping me if DLC worldspaces are required) if possible and single LOD textures if not. I created a FO4LODGen Resources archive, to improve the generated LOD. While it is not required to generate object LOD, I recommend using the FO4LODGen.esp and the FO4LODGen - Main.ba2 for better results. Refer to the included docs/ReadMe.txt file to learn what each of the plugins do. The plugins can be merged, but make sure to keep a the name FO4LODGen.esp in the load order so that the FO4LODGen - Main.ba2 is loaded when starting FO4LODGen.exe. Check the log to make sure the BA2 is loaded. There is no hard requirement for the plugins that define unused LOD models and the FO4LODGen - Main.ba2 to be loaded in the game. However, if you notice flickering LOD textures or other odd behavior keep them in the load order. Let us know if this happened so we can update the instructions. The FO4LODGen-DLCCoast-WindTurbines.esp is just a bonus plugin and has nothing to do with LOD generation. All tree LOD in Fallout 4 is done as object static LOD, so 3D models are required instead of billboards. Even without the FO4LODGen Resources and no plugins changing the worldspaces, FO4LODGen already improves vanilla LOD. Tree LOD models use a feature called "double sided", which the vanilla LOD does not support. In vanilla this means the opposite side of branches are invisible. See below screenshots. Please test and post results so we can work out any kinks before official release. "Use backlight power"
  6. Update March 10, 2017 Starting with version 2.22 DynDOLOD supports Skyrim SE - as beta for experienced users. Starting with 2.36 dynamic LOD is now supported for Skyrim SE. DynDOLOD Skyrim SE beta Skyrim Special Edition The static LOD BTO format changed a bit. It may be possible to use the tree and static files created in the old format, but I do not recommend it at this point as they might be missing out new features and are twice the file size than the new format. It won't be long until an update for DynDOLOD/TES5LODGen is available and you will be able to create static object and tree LOD that can be just dropped into any existing save game without a problem. Static object and tree LOD is only meshes and textures and only requires some simple updates to base records in the esp. Obviously the dynamic LOD that requires SKSE, PapyrusUtil is an entirely different matter. But I plan for a substitute generation in the way like SkyFalls/Mills did it until the required plugins become available.
  7. So, in the attached image, these mountains look glitched and look like they have no texture. This image was taken with Majestic Mountains and DynDoLod, and that was when I first noticed it but after a lot of testing with different settings in dyndolod or removing both dyndolod and majestic mountains, they're still the same.. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or it's supposed to look this way but it looks the same no matter what I do... I'm also using Cathedral Landscapes and Cathedral Weathers. (not sure if that matters tho)

  9. I found when I set "uLargeRefLODGridSize =" to 11, I can get a good lod transition, but from a distance to the winterhold college bridge near the town, I can get an obvious flicker, when I set the value to 5, flicker disappear, but I don't want to lose a good good lod transition, what method can improve?
  10. DynDOLOD DLL beta for Skyrim, Skyrim Special Edition and Skyrim VR So far all versions of DynDOLOD use the SKSE plugin PapyrusUtil for the optional dynamic LOD in the game. Starting with version 2.45 there is now the alternative DynDOLOD DLL available. The current DLL version is 2.45. It works with dynamic LOD generated by DynDOLOD Standalone 2.45 and newer. Read the ..DynDOLOD\Docs\DynDOLOD_DLL.html included in DynDOLOD Standalone for an explanation about DynDOLOD DLL, installation instructions (overwrite papyrus scripts of DynDOLOD Resources) and how it works. If there are problems with it, check DynDOLOD_DLL.html and the DynDOLOD FAQ first before posting. If a DynDOLOD.DLL version is required for a game version that is not listed below, request it in this thread. First, search this thread if it has been requested already, though. The future will tell how long it takes to release updates. Typically a new DynDOLOD.DLL is required for each new game version, but not each new SKSE version. For example a DynDOLOD.DLL compiled with SKSE64 2.0.9 also works with SKSE64 2.0.10 for the same game version.

  11. I've made a retexture for the vanilla Whiterun windmill. Used a new entry, as these are separate placements. I didnt wanted to interfere with the original model. First try, using texture sets for the new colors: Second try, copied the mesh and put these textures inside the mesh, using Nifscope: Both times, I used the full model for the LOD, as seem below: If I used the standard LOD, I would not get the new textures, as it would load the LOD from the standard vanilla texture. In both times, I ran TexGen and Dyndolod. I've got the same result: Why this is happening? I ran TexGen, ran Dyndolod, ran xLodGen for the terrain (although the terrain dont have anything to do with these objects), but I'm still getting the vanilla LOD, for a object with a entire separate entry, using a different mesh, and assigned the full model for the LOD mesh in the CK. This is also happening with other vanilla objects, copied from the nordic ruins and retextured, and which passed through the same processes, also using full models for the LOD mesh in the CK. They all show the vanilla LOD when distant. This is not happening with custom meshes from other authors, though. These are running fine with retextures, even using the same meshes with texture sets. Only vanilla meshes are being affected. Is there a special rule I should put in Dyndolod for it? I tried this one below, but still got the same result:
  12. I start modding Skyrim SE again. I dont know what happen but my trees looks like this...I instaled only 2 trees mods, SKyrim 3D Trees and A Fantasy Forest Overhaul. I run Dyndolod but the trees looks the same. Can anyone help me to solve the problem, please. I tried everything i knew, but i didnt make it. P.S. Sorry for my bad english.
  13. Hello everyone! I'm having issues with lines around the edges of a particular tree lod for treepineforest02 (see screen below). Its been a while since I last ran Dyndolod so I might be wrong, but I can't remember adding anything changing the trees since. Any ideas of what could be causing this? Can one edit a tree lod directly somehow to try to fix it? Thanks for any help!
  14. Hi all! I just downloaded and ran the S.T.E.P. core guide. I like it so far, it seems like a great foundation for modding! I had one problem I wanted some feedback on. I haven't done any deep research on it yet, just noticed it yesterday night and started looking into it today. It seems like the grass is loading in, but that it's loading as if the "landscapes" part of the Skyrim Landscape and Water Fixes mod wasn't active. It was active during my load order, and it still is active now. Both "Landscape and Water Fixes - Patch Relighting Skyrim.esp" and "Landscape and Water Fixes.esp" are under "Available ESPs", and no files are being overwritten by it. The only major deviations from the S.T.E.P. guide I've done so far is to install NEMESIS instead of FNIS, and I'm using the nemesis PCEA along with Combat Gameplay Overhaul and 360 movement (neither of which should mess up the grass, right?). Context: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Tovien/SystemSpecs name of your mod manager: MO2 LOOT load order: enb ini: NA, not using an ENB Was using vanilla BETHini .ini settings when the error occurred (not the recommended ones, just "medium") Screenshots: Lemme get some real quick Description: I loaded in to the AS-LAL prison, broke out, and ran around the watch and up to Ivarstead. It was on the way to Ivarstead that I noticed grass all over the path and leaves covering the road in the town (those people really need to learn to rake! haha) Thanks ahead of time for the responses and for the awesome guide, it's increased my modding knowledge tenfold!
  15. Discussion topic: HD Terrain LOD Mesh by Dlizzio Wiki Link STEP SE Notes: Test Files: Main File (meshes) only! Test against current STEP SE. We used to have a mod for this in the LE Guide, so this should be an easy add. It'll require regenerating with the xLODGen process. Verdict: This mod is redundant with xLODGen, but the "Light" noise map itself is a big improvement. Need to verify that it behaves in transitions and weathers.
  16. Hello there. Recently I have encountered a wierd thing, wich might not be a bug, but still I'd like to know how to fix it. I'm using 3d trees mode with generated ultra trees LODs, but at some point the game does not spawn LODs way in the distance. It's not a big problem when not looking far away, but the moment I look in the distance from some mountain, I can clearly see that there are no LODs for trees. In the screenshots below you can see how I look at Morthal marsh region and there are no trees at all(1st shot), but if I 'tcl' myself closer, LODs appear(2nd shot), but even past that point you can see how the groung further away is empty. https://imgur.com/a/MaTpSvb So I've been trying to regenerate LODs several times, but the problem still stays. What exactly might be the cause for this? Are those some .ini file settings, or am I missing something in the DynDOLOD settings that I should change?
  17. Hello! I´ve recently started modding so the following questions may come off as "rookie" or "noobie", I´ve no problem with that, I´m here to be rebuked. I started downloading LODs and matching them into my skyrim system. I have dynDOlOD who i think everyone is familiar with. I also have some other LODS such as; https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/4163 and https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/9135 My texture mods are https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/4423 and https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/2142 When i run these, I was very annoyed with the almost transparent trees in the distance and trees loading like 6 or 7 cells away from me. I downloaded Lods etc. and I ran them through SSELODGEN. This was the result of the output; <Note: TreePineForestSnowL04 [TREE:0005D2D8] LOD4 not found Textures\Terrain\LODGen\Skyrim Flora Overhaul.esp\TreePineForestSnowL04_0005D2D8.dds><Note: TreePineForestSnowL04 [TREE:0005D2D8] LOD8 not found Textures\Terrain\LODGen\Skyrim Flora Overhaul.esp\TreePineForestSnowL04_0005D2D8.dds><Note: TreePineForestSnowL05 [TREE:0005D2D7] LOD4 not found Textures\Terrain\LODGen\Skyrim Flora Overhaul.esp\TreePineForestSnowL05_0005D2D7.dds><Note: TreePineForestSnowL05 [TREE:0005D2D7] LOD8 not found Textures\Terrain\LODGen\Skyrim Flora Overhaul.esp\TreePineForestSnowL05_0005D2D7.dds><Note: TreePineForestSnowL03 [TREE:0005D2D9] LOD4 not found Textures\Terrain\LODGen\Skyrim Flora Overhaul.esp\TreePineForestSnowL03_0005D2D9 and in the end of the output; [Tamriel] Objects LOD generation error: System Error.

What am I doing wrong? Can someone help and guide me to what I am supposed to do? I would be forever thankful. Cheers
  18. Hi! I have followed the STEP guide 0.3.0b and finally started my new game! I started in Windhelm as a soldier and as soon as I left the city and crossed the bridge, I saw the the paths are all plain white rocks. The mountain tops are also white and the nearby small bridge was also all white (though I managed to fix the bridge, not sure exactly how). Deactivating Cathedral Landscape fixes the issue, but of course I'd like it activated as it seems to be pretty a pretty nice mod that really makes the environment look a lot better. I'm new to modding so I'm at a loss of what to do next. I have re-done the STEP 5 (LOD) of the step guide multiple times, deleting and re-adding the outputs, making sure I have the Lod packs enabled when generating and deactivating afterwards. Some additional info that could be useful: I maybe have modified bEnableImprovedSnow in SkyrimPrefs.ini, but I stupidly don't know which value it should have now. I'm using A Cathedralist's ENB, so I have installed two additional plugins that was required/recommended: ENB Helper SE and ENB Lights. But the rocks are still white when disabling the ENB with Shift+F12. What should be my next step or thing to try? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm not sure what additional specific info I could send to help diagnose or figure out how to fix this, so just tell me if you need something else! PS: I also have an in-game screenshot showing the issue and a screenshot showing MO2 and LOD output folders, but I can't preview or post the topic while having my screenshots in it because I'm met with Nginx: 413 - Request Entity Too Large Error, and end up losing my changes and have to rewrite the whole topic (happened twice), so I'm not risking it. I'll add external links soon. [spoiler=Screenshot] [spoiler=Screenshot 2] [spoiler=Screenshot, related maybe?

  19. For Terrain LOD Generation, there are four options available for people to use. LOD4, LOD8, LOD16, and LOD32. What would be the recommended setting to use for generating the water and terrain?
  20. In SSE I recently updated to Majestic Mountains 3.0, and in this included the LOD texture pack for use with DynDOLOD. After having done this and rerunning DynDOLOD, the LOD was completely disrupted and ended up in some pretty awful textures: https://imgur.com/a/fHdt9j2 So, I reinstalled the game and its mods after attempting to disable everything did not help, and this seemed to help but only partially. I still have some issues with the LOD that I did not have before, although it is not as bad (https://imgur.com/43O8Tdj) and it suggests to me that there are still problems with what I am doing. Below is an example before installing the new MM, with the mountains in the background clearly not rendering like they used to. Before: https://imgur.com/YIBPWEI After: https://imgur.com/Modh764 Any help is appreciated, I have been working on this for two days trying to uninstall and reinstall different mods, and I am still running into problems.
  21. Hi all, I am not sure if this is the best place to ask but I followed a guide on making the environment better looking, everything went fine with TexGen and DynDOLOD except in game the trees change from a basic tree lod to the modded one as I walk up to them which is very jarring .....is that correct ? Here are a few images https://imgur.com/7JXOELU https://imgur.com/WTOnGNz Also found this video on the net which has my exact same issue, except no info on how to fix it Any help would be appreciated
  22. Greetings, As it was stated in the title, it seems DynDOLOD is not applying modded statue of Azura (Sexy Statues Skyrim v2 NSFW Warning) when generating LODs. When I launch the game, vanilla Azura appears instead of the modded variant. The modded statue of Azura will only appear once I get close enough to it. Also, I installed a mod which resize the statue 2x its normal to make it visible all across Skyrim (Elizabeths Tower - Azura Shrine SSE). I have checked SSEEdit to see what defines the conflict and it turns out DynDOLOD.esp set the statue as persistent only and removed "is full lod" definition which was there in Elizabeth's Tower. I have very little idea of what those terms mean but my gut tells me that it has something to do with the trouble I am facing currently. Hence, is there a method to overcome this matter? Thank you very much in advance.
  23. Hi! New to this forum, and new to the whole LOD thing. I've created my own lod on my massive mod pack of over 300 mods. I had some problems with everything but nothing I couldn't solve.. However I ran into a problem as I started a new game that I can't solve haha. So basically the LOD is weirdly reverting between the defaul extremely low resolution lod to the very high detailed LOD that I put up. So far it only seemed to happen on stone walls but nothing else. I'm not sure why this happens so that's why I'm here to ask the community !
  24. I have designed a custom building model, and with it, I have a custom LOD model for my building. As my building has exterior windows with glow, I have additionally made LOD models for the windows. I want to use DYNDOLOD to thus enable my LOD building model to also use the LOD window model. There are no guides for this in the manual, as the section dedicated to describing LOD glow is only written for skyrim models (e.g. enabling LOD glow for High Hrothgar), but there is nothing there for modmakers who want their custom buildings to have LOD glow. So as I spend some time trying to figure out how for instance the High Hrothgar LOD glow windows work, I am assuming that there may be many hidden variables that I am completely missing that I would never be able to figure out myself. So for Shenson or anyone out there who have themselves successfully gotten LOD glow to work on models that previously have not had LOD glow, I would appreciate any guidance I can get.
  25. Skyrim SE, Bruma. I notice there were issues with Bruma static LOD ('Oldrim' Bruma forum), and you recommended generating tree LOD only for the region. How do I omit the Bruma static LOD using the DynDOLOD interface, please? Or do I need to do that at Mod level? I unpacked the Bruma SE BSA to access tree LOD. Thanks!
