xLODGen with Seasons of Skyrim + TotS

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi everyone o/

I'm trying to get Seasons of Skyrim and Turn of the Seasons to work. I looked all day for some kind of step by step tutorial for this mod combination but had no luck. So far i got everything right except for the terrain LODs. Please, can someone help me understand the process with xLODGen?

I understend xLODGen is used only to to generate the terrain. TexGen and DynDoLOD ist working perfectly for me. So my questions are specific to the SoS + TotS mod combination. I know how to generate terrain LODs without seasons.


- Do i need to select all worldspaces for terrain generation? Only Tamriel and Wyrmstooth (added by TotS)? What about Markarth and DLC worlds?
- Do i need to tick all seasons (Default, SPR, SUM, AUT, WIN)?
- Is there an option to generate only default textures for some worlds, and every season for others like Tamriel?


Right now i have xLODGen running with every Worldspace selected and every Season ticked. It has been almost 3 hours and the size is 12 GB (!!!) and its not even done. This cant be right, or is it?

Please help

Select the worldspace for you want to generate seasonal LODs. This depends on the lists of worldspaces that are defined in the po3_SeasonsOfSkyrim.ini for the different seasons.

Select the seasons that are going to be switched to. This depends on the season type setting and if the terrain LOD swap for a season is enabled in po3_SeasonsOfSkyrim.ini.
Only seasons for which swap data is found can be checked.

Simply run xLODGen several times with the different options if different worldspaces require different settings.

Generating 5 times the LOD typically should increase the required time and space by 5 as well. The good part is that the game only loads the seasonal files it currently needs.

Thank you so much! i looked in every file in the "Seasons" folder but never looked at the actual .ini of the plugin. Thanks!

      ENB makes my character's skin look really really pale and kind of makes the entire game look cold.  Which settings would I be looking at to make the colors a little warmer?

      I see in the guide it says to install LW dawnbreaker with dwarven/dwemer sheath but for the enb light installation instructions is says to choose default dawnbraker sheath and not alt sheath...I was just wondering why that may be.

      The vanilla cotton plant is modeled somewhat after a flowering commercial cotton plant: Google Images of cotton plants
      Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim depicts it after the tundra cotton plant, which is more like a grass. Google Images of tundra cotton
      This mod blends the two, giving it the leaves of a commercial cotton plant and the flower of a tundra cotton plant.
      I consider this a significant deviation from vanilla, so I would not recommend for Step, but it looks fantastic.
      Compares:
      Vanilla --> Cathedral Plants --> Hybrid's HD Plants --> Cathedral - 3D Tundra Cotton
