Brief Texture Flicker Upon Loading Game.

Question

Hi there, i am getting what looks to be a brief & odd texture flicker / overlay when loading into my newly compiled DynDOLOD with SkyrimVR ( new game save. )  

Any idea what this might be caused from? , When loading into my game It flickers for 1-2 sec and immediately goes away but also as i am moving forward in the game world, bridges flicker at a distance for a few seconds then it turns normal looking, it's not game-breaking but i would love to solve this issue if possible.

Here is a few screenshots for comparison , Maybe i missed something in the RTFM, if so please direct me to the right section, Thanks for any help with this.

Flicker                                                         Normal

Check and text if anything from these answers apply:

FAQ: Game: Out of place objects / floating objects / flickering full models 

A: If LOD was generated for a different load order generate LOD for the current load order.

A: Test with new game, wait in the exterior for the DynDOLOD initialized message before moving. If problem goes away, the updating of an existing save game with old DynDOLOD.esp went wrong. Follow instructions how to update save game with a new DynDOLOD.esp. RTFM, watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_5MWqeHIzw&t=2320 or check DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM. The clean save routine can also be redone with the same plugin to reset everything. 

A: If the load order had script lag and deactivating/activating from the DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM main page does not reset out of place objects, do the clean save routine where "old" and "new" plugin are the same. Consider generating less demanding dynamic LOD, see 'Performance' section in ..DynDOLOD\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual.html 

A: Wild edit added by a plugin. Check the DynDOLOD log for messages about wild edits. Use console in the game and click on object to retrieve the form id. Look up the form id in xEdit and remove the reference, clean plugin afterwards. Notify mod author. If object is added by DynDOLOD.esp, follow the "pluginname_formid" information found in the Editor ID of the reference to find the plugin from which this object originates. 

A: Deleted record by a dirty plugin. Check the log for messages about deleted references by dirty plugins. Clean all UDRs and ITMs from dirty plugins.

A: Sometimes LOD objects are placed on top of other objects without LOD and thus appear to float in the distance. Use mesh rules so that the object has no LOD or that the other object also has LOD. 

A: Game engine limitation. If the game enables objects that have static object LOD, the entire static object LOD for a cell may briefly show with the full models at the same time. Since now more objects have LOD this might be more obvious than before, especially while playing the intro. Consider installing the generated LOD mod after completing the intro. 

A: If the problems is stuck object LOD in Whiterun after fast travel, change Distant Object Detail on the View Distance tab of the Advanced options of the games launcher from Ultra to High. Alternatively try just slightly changing the value fBlockLevel0Distance=60000 in SkyrimPrefs.ini to 57000. 

A: Some mods are made with disregard to generating LOD or require updated rules and configs for best compatibility. This is especially true with mods modifying the walled cities. Users are asked and welcome to provide feedback to https://stepmodifications.org/forum/forum/223-shesons-dyndolod-xlodgen/ in order to get everything working with as much compatibility as possible. Include a link to the mod and screenshots (with console / form id) about issues if possible. 

A: Flickering textures (full and LOD model showing at the same time) in the LOD area outside the active cells in Skyrim Special Edition and Skyrim VR are caused by plugins triggering the large reference bugs as explained in ..DynDOLOD\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_SSE.html. Verify if the problem goes away by setting uLargeRefLODGridSize=5 in SkyrimPrefs.ini.

A: If the problem is stuck object LOD in loaded cells, it can be caused by uLockedObjectMapLOD=32 in Skyrim.ini.

 

In case large references are enabled in game also make sure that both the DynDOLOD.esm and DynDOLOD.esp are geenrated and that the SkyUI MCM enable large reference fix is set as explained in the manual.

Also note that DynDOLOD does not change how the engine works as explained so many times before. When new cells attach, first the full models are loaded, then the LOD unloads. For that brief second both models are shown.

This must be it, because all other options above do not seem to pertain to my issue, it only happens when I initially load into certain ( not all ) areas, if i save, and reload the same area immediately or teleport to the same area after loading in, it does not occur.

Thanks for the extensive and quick reply.

      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 77 - based on 4.1.3f
      Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any game and Steam folders or special Windows folders like Program Files.
      (Pro users can merge with existing xEdit installation. Make sure to overwrite older LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe TexConv.exe/TexConvx64.exe in Edit Scripts. All other files with the same filenames are the same as the latest version of xEdit.)
      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. Use this if a mod manager with a virtual file system (like MO) is used.
      Do not generate into any game or any mod manager folders that are part (direct or indirect) of the virtual file system.
      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 (DXT5 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition 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, SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm, SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots)
      SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm - 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.

      DynDOLOD beta for Skyrim Special Edition, Skyrim VR and Enderal SE | Skyrim/Enderal | What is DynDOLOD? | DynDOLOD FAQ
      DynDOLOD is the advanced but also easier version of xLODGen. It is for experienced users that can RTFM and know how to mod. Start by reading the Quickstart.html in the Standalone download. It is fully feature compatible with the Skyrim version.
      This is called beta because Skyrim Special Edition is still plagued by mods triggering large reference bugs. Until that can be easily resolved there is no pro-active testing and support of mods. As always users are asked to provide feedback and report compatibility issues with mods.
      What's New?
      Starting with DynDOLOD  2.95 the Steam version of Enderal SE is supported. Start the tools with the -enderalse command line argument. Starting with DynDOLOD 2.90 the mod Enderal SE is supported. Start the tools in Skyrim Special Edition mode with the -sse command line argument, the mod will automatically be discovered. Use DynDOLOD Resource SE. install the required billboards (see manual). Install Papyrus Util SE or DynDOLOD DLL. SKSE64 and SkyUI are already requirements for Enderal SE / included in the Steam version.
      Starting with DynDOLOD 2.70 the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data of cell records can be update/generated. The data is used to disable distant occluded object and terrain LOD meshes behind other terrain LOD meshes for better performance. See included Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual.html "TVDT - Occlusion Data" section. Check the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread for more information, questions and feedback.
      Starting with DynDOLOD 2.48 both TexGen and DynDOLOD can now export textures with BC7 compression. They are used by default.
      If there is trouble with BC7 somehow or the external tool TexConv being denied access by the OS, try switching back to BC1/BC3.
      Starting with DynDOLOD 2.45 there is an alternative DynDOLOD DLL that can be used instead of PapyrusUtil for the optional dynamic LOD.
      Required Skyrim SE and Skyrim VR
      DynDOLOD Standalone 2.95 beta (Mega)
      DynDOLOD Resources SE 2.88 beta (Mega) - Make sure to use matching or higher version of DynDOLOD Standalone.
      Vanilla Skyrim LOD Billboards from TES5LODGen, Indistinguishable Vanilla Tree Billboards, Indistinguishable Billboards for Skyrim Special Edition or Seamless Billboards.
      The optional dynamic LOD requires SKSE64 or SKSEVR for the used game version and either DynDOLOD DLL or PapyrusUtil SE/VR
      The optional DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM requires SkyUI for Skyrim Special Edition or SkyUI VR for Skyrim VR
      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 DynDOLOD.exe/TexGen.exe (x86) or DynDOLODx64.exe/TexGenx64.exe (x64) is used. LODGen.exe will print an explanatory message in case it is missing. Texconv.exe will fail with error C0000135 or complain about missing DLL.
      Generate from scratch if updating from older version.
      By default this will generate a DynDOLOD.esm and a DynDOLOD.esp to work around well known game engine bugs.
      Read the included ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_SSE.html ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_TES5VR.html for more information, explanations and the different options of the DynDOLOD patcher and in the DynDOLOD MCM regarding the use of large references in the game. Default settings will make a best compatibility and performance effort based on current INI settings.
      DynDOLOD dynamic LOD works correctly with large references and there are no issues with the vanilla game. However, in case ESP are used that modify large references there is nothing to be done to stop the flickering other than disabling the large references atm. There might be more compatibility settings or patching in the future.
      Generally, installation and generation is the same as with Skyrim.
      Skyrim SE/VR BETA - What to test
      Test that things generate as expected with whatever plugins in the load order.
      Test that the dynamic LOD works as intended. Test things work right with plugins adding new worldspaces. I only did brief testing with a couple mods.
      Things should work fine with paid mods and ESL flagged ESP, report all oddities.
      Mod testing is limited, if things are out of place or have wrong LOD, report with screenshots, form ids etc. so rules for mods can be updated.
      Because of the need to have an ESM for things to work properly, there is a chance that some records have to copy as "underwrite" into the ESM and as normal overwrite into the ESP at the same time. The DynDOLOD.esm should never have any unflagged ESP as a master and only get its records/data from masterfiles (including flagged ESP). Post a report with log in case the DynDOLOD.esm has an unflagged ESP as master. LOOT typically will let you know one way or another (reporting cyclic interaction or crash for example). Do not use such plugins for anything as they are broken.
      Also check final load order in the game mod menu, as it will enforce the load order.
      Post error reports with entire contents (not just the last couple lines) of ..\DynDOLOD\bugreport.txt (if it exists) and ..DynDOLOD\Logs\DynDOLOD_[GAMEMODE]_log.txt or a screenshot of the error. Use pastebin or file service if files can not be attached.
      Skyrim VR Notes
      I do not own Skyrim VR, so testing and support is limited and made on a best effort basis.
      Everything from Skyrim SE applies to Skyrim VR.
      See ..\Docs\DynDOLOD_Manual_TES5VR.html as it points out the differences to Skyrim SE to the best of my knowledge.
      -TES5VR command line, but uses all of SSE configs and settings.
      Install DynDOLOD Resource SE as is. There is no need to delete scripts in case generation of dynamic LOD is not selected.
      Other new stuff 2.44
      Starting with 2.44 there is now full ESL and ESPs flagged as ESL support for Skyrim SE - based on the latest xEdit updates.
      Added back proper support for new worldspaces added by ESPs.
      Added support for external Billboard NIFs to allow for different type of "2D" tree LODs done in object LOD. See DynDOLOD\Docs\trees.ultra\DynDOLOD-Trees.html for full explanation how to use.
      Enabled Racemenu NiOverride support for Glow LOD Windows
      Other new stuff 2.36
      Some of the install options (Whiterun and Solitude Exterior etc.) of DynDOLOD Resources SE 2.36 do not install plugins anymore. Instead the options install patch files used by DynDOLOD.exe. When LOD is generated, the former plugin data is merged into the DynDOLOD plugins directly.
      Other new stuff 2.37
      Worked around bugs present in paid mods, so Homestead works fine now.
      Added proper support for Legacy of the Dragonborn SSE 4.x - it shows on the map now, Guild buildings visible from inside Solitude and other improvement and optimizations.
      Fixed Wyrmstooth problems as reported by Sandman53
      Other new stuff 2.38
      improved paid mods and ESL support
      fixed no model found issue reported by mtreis86 and others
      reworked plugin detection in papyrus scripts
      Other new stuff 2.40
      Checks for SKSE and PapyrusUtil are automatically disabled in case dynamic LOD is not generated.

      Installation
      Install the requirements as usual. Install the Core Files from either DynDOLOD Resources or DynDOLOD Resources SE depending on the used game version. Typically overwrite any files or refer to Load/Overwrite Orders. Install other options as desired. Unpack the DynDOLOD Standalone archive into a new 'DynDOLOD' directory that is outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', User, Documents, Desktop, Download and also not in SteamApps, game or any mod manager folders. By default the tools start in Skyrim mode, which is the same as adding the -tes5 command line parameter. Add -sse for Skyrim Special Edition, -tes5vr for Skyrim VR or -enderal for the Enderal Steam Version.  
      LOD Generation
      Use TexGen to generate object LOD textures and tree/grass LOD billboards into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod. Use DynDOLOD to generate object LOD (includes grass LOD if enabled), tree and optional dynamic LOD into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod.  
      Major Feature Changes
      Generate high quality tree/grass LOD billboards with TexGen. No need to install any billboards. Ultra tree LOD is now a checkbox - remember to update the tree mesh rule as desired. Billboard Grass LOD in object LOD Level 4. See next post for details. Generate some pre-rendered object LOD textures, including all cities. Generate an underside terrain mesh to block sun rays.
