Wonders of Weather causing CTD

Question

During heavy rain, if you approach an unopened dragon burial mound, you can CTD. Recommend the guide be updated to uncheck rain splash effects to avoid this bug.

I registered an account just to say thank you for this. It was indeed the rain splashes from Wonders of Weather. Turning those off resolved this crash I was having near the dragon mound on the road headed west along the trail from Whiterun's Western Watch Tower.

This may be relevant to some but not all. Will add a note to the Guide.

Yes, it is a widely reported issue on their nexus forum, and a bug has been filed showing that the script is being called so quickly that it isn't having enough time to execute before it is being called again.

So it is not a bug as much a performance issue? I have never had this problem.

Dunno man, semantics maybe? I don't care either way, heh. Just passing on information that may be helpful to others who might have CTD issues with this option enabled.

Is it a good idea to install this with the Less Opaque Splash plugin checked?:

It edits the way the mounds are displayed and seems to rename and replace the mound meshes. The author states the CTD is caused by the way water splashes collide with the meshes.

I don't have any of these issues either, so cannot speak to this. It's either an upstream configuration (human) error or a hardware/software limitation causing this issue. Suggest following the Skyrim Setup Guide to rule out improper config. This is exactly why we wrote it :yes:

I always install the Less Opaque option. It just looks better, imo, but it's dependent on your weather/lighting/ENB.

As for that fix, I can't say either way, either. I don't have this issue, so it could very well be performanced based. If it was truly a mesh/collision issue and nothing else, everyone would have the issue. The fact that not everyone does means the root issue is likely something else, but the fix is probably just circumventing it with some trickery.
