Skyrim SE. How do I lower texture quality? Editing .ini files doesn't work.

Question

I start up SSE and get something around 10 FPS.(not a strong machine, and no I won't get an upgrade.)

 

A texture quality option for SSE is nowhere to be seen, so I end up on the STEP Skyrim Configuration Settings page.

 

Tried editing iTexMipMapSkip under [imagespace] in both SkyrimPrefs.ini, low.ini, medium.ini, high.ini, ultra.ini(eventually every single Skyrim related .ini I could find, including Skyrim.ini) to 1, 2, 3, even 30 and nothing makes a change.

 

Setting Detail to Low from the launcher boosted the FPS a lot but only by turning down all the other settings. Texture doesn't receive the slightest change.

 

Pretty pissed that they didn't include the most basic graphics option available.

Lowering texture quality will nor give you much higher fps.

How come? It gave me better fps in Oldrim.(And I can see this being more so the case now because of how hi-res the textures are in SE.)

Turning down the effects is going to give you better results than just lowering the texture resolution. Lower texture quality is not an option that newer games typically have anymore because of the advancements in technology. My suggestion would be to run BethINI. It has presets included which are better rounded out than the vanilla presets. The newer effects like godrays are going to kill performance so you'll likely have to turn them off.

In Oldrim, I got about 10 difference in fps between Low, Medium, and High, with an average 30 fps with medium. I just thought the impact would be higher with the all-new-more-hi-res-than-anything-before textures.

Turning down the effects works without taking much away from the game, so I'm happy now.

      A few questions I have about Noise.dds:
      1. What is the noise.dds and what exactly is it used for? All I know is that its used on terrain to simulate fake grass using noise to make it appear more "grainy".
      2. How is it effected by things like light and the terrain below it?
      3. Why is it Greyscaled? Is it the darker it is the more transparent it is, so parts that are black are completely transparent?

      Hi there, after implementing Indistinguishable Billboards, DynDOLOD Resources SE, HD LODs Textures SE, DynDOLOD Textures, and DynDOLOD Output, there are some tree LODs that appear to be unmodified vanilla textures. I've been trying to figure out where the vanilla LODs are stored in order to modify them, but I can't find anything online about that. Can someone point me in the right direction?
      I've attached a screenshot with a couple examples highlighted.

      Hi there,
      My trees aren't being affected by this mod (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/44600?tab=files&file_id=183542&nmm=1)
      I tried overwriting to both Morekvior and Myrkvior but neither attempts were fruitful. I'm stumped and would love to see those trees again - oh man
