Load up imgbox gallery and cycle through all images to load them. Then use the arrow buttons to toggle back and forth. Images aren't a perfect overlay, due to slight variations in COW positioning but close enough. They can also be examined directly in the spoiler.

I have now tried all three color versions and this is my humble opinion.

 

Light is the most vanilla and is a bit to bright on my rig (as said in the STEP guide). But it is very much more like the scandinavian Granite where i live and that is nice. The brightness makes such things as dwemer buildings hard to see from a distance in sunny weather. Same goes with some snow effects.

 

Main file is to red and to far from what i think is Granite... although it is probably just my mind that just wants Skyrim mountains to be like the Granitie my eyes are used to.

 

Dark is the number one choise for me. It makes snow effects on the mountains stand out a bit and also makes constructions be more visible from far distances. Only problem with that... it is a bit wierd that the stone used for constructions seem to come from another part of Tamriel. But i can live with that for the better looks.

Should the LOD-pack be merged with Majestic Mountains mod in MO2?

No. It's only used for generating LOD and then deactivated. I'll put that little note in the Guide.

Your post convinced me to try out the Dark version and I have to say I completely agree with everything you've said. Every mountain in the game looks gorgeous now. I especially like how it affects the landscape in the snowier areas (such as Winterhold) where the color of the rock contrasts with the snow and ice. But you're also right that it is a bit jarring to see all that dark rock scattered around towns where the buildings are clearly made with a different material.

On a minor note, the 3.10 update to Majestic Mountains sets the ESM flag on the Moss esp out-of-the-box.

Thanks you! I haven't been to Nexus to update yet. I'll get the mod page updated.

May be I missed something, in the current Optional file instructions - '...deactivated after. Name the file something like: "(TEMP) - Majestic Mountains - LODGen". Though later in LODgen and DYNDOLOD I didn't find when to deactivate it actually, and whether it's need to be deactivated.

The step to deactivate "(TEMP) - Majestic Mountains - LODGen" was removed from the DynDOLOD section of the guide. I asked about this on the guide page and @TechAngel85 says it should not matter if it remains activated.

      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 using DynDOLOD Alpha99...
      In the past I was able to get my distance grass colors more balanced, looking similar, now the farthest distance out is a greener color, then the rest of the grass.
      Here's a screen shot of the grass I am referring to with red boxes around it, that appears greener than the rest...
      Green Grass — Freeimage.host
      I'm using Complex Grass... 
      To balance the colors, is this just playing around the TexGen Direct/Ambient?
      In DynDOLOD I've tried default settings and these settings for the complex grass.
      ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ; make bottom darker to fake shadowing ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 THANKS
