DynDOLOD Skyrim Special Edition

Question

Recommended Posts

  • 0

This glitch happened to me earlier, just thought you might be interested, since it is LOD related: https://imgur.com/a/JD2NL

It is basically the LOD not unloading. It flickered on and off depending on view angle, giving the whole thing a strobe like effect while moving the mouse. Load order was just Arthmoors SSE mods. No need to troubleshoot, i could not replicate this on several new saves.

First images is Skyrim as it were. Second image is Skyrim Special Edition. Third image is Skyrim Special Edition static object LOD generated by SSELODGen.

If you have keen eyes you can notice that the far away terrain is lower in SSE compared to Skyrim, exposing the base of optimized static LOD objects that have triangles under the surface removed. I suppose this helps a bit to counter z-fighting and is only really obvious when you compare between Skyrim and SSE.

 

LODGen.exe used by SSELODGen and DynDOLOD will try to mitigate by lowering the cut-off height just a bit when optimizing the static object LOD.

Is it my imagination or has the mountain in the lower right changed positions in Skyrim Special Edition?

Is it my imagination or has the mountain in the lower right changed positions in Skyrim Special Edition?

I tried to be at the exact same position by using player.getpos and player.setpos but yes, somehow north/south y value did not seen to match. Maybe I am not able to read my hand writing... Anyhow, I know the peak where to stand. Also FOV is different I think.

Yeah, more an FoV issue than a position one.

 

About what @snares pointed out, this have been encountered/confirmed by multiple people, including me and Alternity. Probably going to pull off a post on Beth thread on the subject after some more investigations, and maybe try to generate enough community attention like with the sound issue to get them to fix it.

Looks like it can do trees. Still some ways to go though. And a bug that needs fixing.

Hey Sheson,

 

Any word from Bethesda regarding the mentioned bugs? Have they been officially acknowledged?

 

Is there a thread on the Bethesda forums relating to this that we can post on to show support for them fixing these issues? I am worried they are about to stop patching SSE, and I am hoping the community can provide a slight push to maybe help convince them it is worth the time to fix this issue.

 

Thanks

Nope, we got no reply yet to our complex report. I will create a thread on their forum. Just about the most pressing problem with the differences between esm/esp.

Hi,

 

I am allowing myself to post here, even if it is not directly related to DynDOLOD (If I am wrong, don't hesitate to delete, sorry for that).

 

I've read the article in the link you posted. I noticed a same issue in my game, so I'm glad you managed to find the reason. Thanks for finding where Bethesda was wrong... again :)

 

I encountered a -very- strange issue, and I was wondering if there is a possible "logical" explanation about it or if someone else have the same issue. I will try to be as precise as I can.

The bug I noticed is a problem in which Lods models do not disappear after some specific fast travel.
(https://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/133732ScreenShot59.jpg).

 

- It look like it appears only when I fast-travel on a long distance.

  When I was trying to understand the problem I used to fast-travel from Volkihar Castle to Honningbrew Meadery.

 

- I used a 100% clean save on third person view (right after the helgen exit I fast travel to Volkihar Castle and started the tests), My data directory only had the original Skyrim SE bsa and the 5 original esm nothing else.

 

- "clean save" will refer to the save I made at Volkihar Castle and "autosave" will refer to the save which is automatically done just before a fast travel. I close Skyrim after each fast travel to be sure nothing are stored in cache or anything.

 

---

 

- First case:

 

- Load the clean save, (in third person view so), fast travel from Volkihar Castle to Honningbrew Meadery : No problem

 

- Close Skyrim, Load the autosave (still in third person view), fast travel from Volkihar Castle to Honningbrew Meadery : No problem

 

--

 

- Second case:

 

- Load the clean save, change to first person view, fast travel from Volkihar Castle to Honningbrew Meadery : No problem

 

- Close Skyrim, Load the autosave (in first person view so), fast travel from Volkihar Castle to Honningbrew Meadery : problem happen (as in the picture).

 

--

 

Needless to say I had to restart my game dozens of time to find out it is the first person view which actually cause this problem.

I can see no way in which this is related, for me there is absolutely no reason changing view can have an impact on how Lods are managed, maybe I missed something...

I also find it very strange the problem only occurs when I load the "autosave".

 

Moreover I tried with all my mods/Meshes/Script etc. in the data folder and this didn't changed the problem (first person view = problem, Third person view = fine).

 

I obviously don't expect for a fix or anything, I was just curious if you or someone have an idea about what could cause this problem since I can't see any logic with it...

Thanks for taking the time to read it!

 

Regards,

 

Abendaron

I guess the questions is if there is any relationship between the fast travel LOD not unloading problem or not. A similar problem exists in Skyrim, but just with LOD water not unloading and it only happens when auto save for fast travel is turned off. Looks like the problem is different in Skyrim SE now.

 

You should try to figure out if any mod changes any of the large objects in that cell. What I would do is, turn off all LOD with tll in console, then toggle clipping so you can go up and watch better from top with tcl and then walk backwards away from that area until the cell unloads. Whatever objects still show now are the large references. Click one by one and note their form ids and look them up in SSEEdit.exe. If a single one of them is changed by a mod there might be a connection.

Thank you very much for your reply and your suggestion.

I will try to check it tomorrow in SSEEDIT and hopefully find where the problem is :)

 

First I also thought it was due to a mod (same kind of issue happened to me in the old Skyrim when I generated Lods with DynDOLOD with a bad load order for example).

For this reason I did a clean reinstall without installing any mods and tried on a clean savegame to avoid any problem related to mods (Sorry if I wasn't very precise on it, I sometime had difficulties to completely express myself in a correct English).

But unfortunately this didn't fixed this issue. Except if I did something wrong (totally possible) I think the problem exist in Vanilla Skyrim SE.

 

I tried again this time with all my mods since I thought that maybe unofficial patch could fix this issue, without any noticeable change.

I discussed a bit with Wazel974 from Nexus, and we found out we have the same problem in the same condition (only when fast traveling in first person view, not in third person view).

 

Anyway, I didn't though to look in xEdit to have more detailed info and I will try what you suggested.

 

Cheers.

      Starting a list for all the mods in the current STEP guide, which are in need to be updated (or already are) to work with the current game version 1.6.640. I'm listing only relevant mods in each category (please correct me if i missed anything).

      Hi!
      I'm have made 3D LODs and I want to create a "performance version" of the 3D LODs. I noticed that the Step Modifications team has created plenty of 3D LODs for various tree mods with this option. I'm unsure where to start in this process of optimizing the tree models. So far, as you can imagine, the decimate modifier in blender seems to be greatly lowering poly count but at the cost of a deteriorated model. I have seen the term "flat trunk models", but am also unsure of how to do this or what it means. Does this refer to the trunk after running it through hybrid.bat? Any advice on where to start or what tools to use? Also, should I only concern myself with optimizing the trunks or would it be wise to include optimized crowns?
      Thank you in advance for any help!!

      I've trying to make trees, so I used speedtrees to create first tree. I've exported tree model to .obj format and textures in png. After it i converted png to dds. In blender I checked tree, connected alfa channel and it looks like good.
       
      Then I've exported from blender .obj and opened in NifScope, so all was ok, but then I started to put textures I fond problem
       
      Here you can see black color around leafs, so how can I fix it and remove this black color? Maybe something wrong with textures ?
