Skyrim flora overhaul trees pop in

Question

Hello, 

 

I am having problems with trees popping (missing LOD?), but only with some of the SFO special trees.

 

Screenshots showing this problem can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/sYEkZ . The trees, shown in the first 2 images are called "GKB_mapletree01" and are defined in the "Trees and Flora Merged.esp".

List of mods load-order and ini files: https://modwat.ch/u/Tomtomp-SRLE .

DynDOLOD has been generated as specified by the guide, preset: Medium.

 

Apart from the pop-in problem, I am also curious about the normal "vanilla" tree LODs. Are they supposed to look the way they look on the first screenshot? (Top-right)

 

Thanks for any help.

that pop in happens because you dont have lods for those trees so DDL couldn't generate them. I don't know what guide are you using this is for SRLE original support.

how do they get lods if tamrieltreelods.dds gets overwritten ?

 

I remember it was fixes with relinker but my relinker has no lod files right now.

Well these trees don't have any billboards in SFO 1.91 so why not take the ones from custom placed trees megaptach ? run the relinker so they get in the proper folder ?

I have spent the last two hours trying to find a fix for this issue before I found this post by accident. My reasons are the same location's shown in the images above. If someone with more knowledge on this could give some input as to how to solve this it would be greatly appreciated. If I find out first I will definitely be posting the fix.

Personally, I abandoned v1.91 for the more up to date v2.5b so same as SRLE Base and Paul and JD's guide. I was planning on doing this change to our guide but never got to it.

Sorry, didn't realize this forum was for the original. I was following the SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn guide (https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Darth_mathias/SRLE_Extended_Legacy_of_The_Dragonborn).

I remember it was fixes with relinker but my relinker has no lod files right now.

Running relinker was also a part of the guide (SRLE E: LoTD), but it doesn't seem to help.

In MO I have SFO v1.91, v2.5b and v2.5b billboards in this order:

 

Skyrim Flora Overhaul (v1.91)
Skyrim Flora Overhaul (2.5b)
Skyrim Flora Overhaul (2.5b Billboards)

Using the SFO v2.5b removed the new trees, so the LOD are no longer a problem. I think I am fine without the special tree types.

 

I have one more question, I installed the "Tall Pines" optional file, but it is being overwritten by "Enhanced Vanilla Trees - Bilboard generator". I tried putting the "Tall Pines" after EVT, which seemed to work (the distant trees also looked much better), but there were some problems with LOD sizes, after running DynDOLOD. Looking at the "Enhanced Vanilla Trees" mod page, the author specifies, that no other tree LOD mods should be used.

 

One last question: When using DynDOLOD, my settings look like this -> https://imgur.com/a/cUD6D . Is this correct, or should I skip the "Generate tree LOD"?

well EVT (if installed as per the guide) uses large tree models so sfo models don't match. Let EVT overwrite sfo.

Can confirm now that adding the billboards makes it work 1500406533-enb-2017-07-18-21-32-36-38.jp

just so you know the Custom Placed Trees Megapatch was part of the guide at one point but was pulled I really can't remember why now it was a few months ago or maybe it was part on the orginal SRLE Extended and never got transfer again I really can't remember. I persoanlly haven't done any modding since like Febuary.

It was indeed, i remember it very well, that's how I actually found the lods of these said trees from sfo 1.91 expanded diversity.

 

Since we had this mod the lods just blended in but without it, there are actually no lods for them, just the tamriel_tree_lods file which gets overwritten anyways.

Thanks for the responses I am glad to know there is a fix and I am going to try the fix for v1.9, but I took off with Darkladylexy suggestion that night as I have used that setup in SRLE before and it works really well, "I am not sure I will switch back even if v1.9 does start working because v2.5b is absolutely stunning.

well normally in the guide we use sfo 1.91 only for the expanded diversity, then SFO 2.5b for some trees, then enhanced vanilla trees which is the main tree mod in the guide.
