Umm...no.

I maintain that mod. The update today had nothing to do with WS. You're confusing "1.2.2" with "1.2.2WS".

I removed those REFR records, as they don't change anything from Dawnguard.esm, aside from linking to inexistent references.

It's new...I swear I check this stuff and it just creeps right back in...CK likes to break anything and everything it can. :rolleyes:

I'll poke around today at some interiors and then upload a fix. I don't think those records should even be in there so I've removed those three "Trap Linker" references from the mod.

I came across this mod a while ago: Orphaned Light fixes.

Quote

Fixes a few lights without a source that are present when Relighting Skyrim is installed.

I'm using it in my load order but I haven't delved into the details to verify the actual issues without it, or the fixes with it.

It just adds a lantern or two in a couple of interior cells. I'm mentioning it in case these issues really exist, in which case you might want to address them directly.

There is a bug in Cell 00071FFE <SolitudeJusticiarsHeadquarters> where the mod repositions a light bulb and wall sconce on the opposite wall, but the sconce position is incorrect and it's not visible:

Vanilla > Vanilla + Relighting Skyrim (v1.3)

20220119175856_1.jpg20220119175614_1.jpg

The misplaced sconce is Cell \ Block 2 \ Sub-Block 4 \ 00071FFE <SolitudeJusticiarsHeadquarters> \ Temporary \ 000E64BF.

You'll need to figure out the correct coordinates as I try to keep my hands off CK as much as possible.

Thanks.

Sorry for the many posts, I forgot something else. In that same cell, there is shadow added by the mod at the window with the display case on the right past the headquarters entrance. I'm not sure what the intent is, but it doesn't look quite right to me.

Vanilla > Vanilla + Relighting Skyrim (v1.3) > Same with darker interior, easier to see

20220119192051_1.jpg20220119192156_1.jpg20220119192250_1.jpg

The shadow in question is Cell \ Block 2 \ Sub-Block 4 \ 00071FFE <SolitudeJusticiarsHeadquarters> \ Temporary \ xx087207.

Just need to rotate that light. The shadow lights are horrible. You get holes and stuff like this that you have to account for. Rotating the light until it's hidden is the only thing that can be done.

Ok that sounds great but that flew right over my head... What is the desired effect by adding the shadow light here? For the display case to cast a shadow?

Anyhow, for the time being, I just patched it out (disabled the ref) and it looks like this:

Good enough :)

I've been visiting quite a few locations modified by RLS and looking at the changes in xEdit. Based on my observations I've decided to drop this mod from my load order. So the good news is I won't pester you with bug reports anymore :)

Thanks and good luck with the maintenance.

Mod updated on Nexus.

  • Version 2.0.0WS

    • Window Shadows v2 Changes


      This major version update for the Window Shadows version fully incorporates the core meshes, textures and plugin changes from WS v7.7.5. What is NOT included from WS v7.7.5 are the optional features nor the patches. All the optional features conflict with most lighting mods, thus RS will not include them for support. They can be used as standalone options, but users will still have to get thoses files from the WS page.

      This means users that aren't using the optional features (enhancer, brighter blow maps, light fader) will NOT need to download the original mod. Since the base WS mod is now fully incorporated, these users can skip downloading Window Shadows...saving a plugin slot in the process.

      Thanks to HHaley and Dlizzio for the open permissions to allow this merger.

I've noticed the guide/LOOT puts RS before weather mods, instead of after like its mod page recommends. Is there a particular reason for this?

      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 94 - based on 4.1.4b
      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.
      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.
