STEP SE Notes:
Test Files: Depends on what is currently winning for STEP SE. The 2K version is likely the right candidate, however, if the current textures are 4K, then test against both 4K and 2K.

I think i prefer the Better Dirtcliffs Mod.

 

The thing is that in the first picture it looks like old dead roots and therfore less dirt, in Better Dirt Mod it looks more like living roots and therefore more dirt.

 

But i really think it is best down by the water under the overhang, looks natural  and realistic to have some dirt there so close to  the water.

 

But it is really up to taste. (How long would roots look healthy in the air llike in the Better Dirtcliffs Mod before turning into dry and grey roots? :)

I like where this mod is going and in many cases seems like an improvement ... but I think the dirt is too dark in some cases and contrasts too much with the bedrock. The third compare set really shows this. Looks like there was an oil spill. I would love it if the author lightened the dirt up just a bit. LOD would look really stark.

 

Vanilla doesn't look good either, but blends better, especially in the distance.

I have to agree with Z. I look far better but fails with the dirt texture for our Guide. It's just far too dark and is made to blend with a specific dirt texture from a specific mod...which is obvious in our case. It's a good mod, just not made for our mod list. I'm tracking it in hopes that an option for lighter dirt textures will be made available in the future.

I thought I had already commented on this one, but I agree that the dark surface dirt seems out of place to me.

      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
