Step 10 – Grass Overhaul

GRASS OVERHAUL

To edit your INI files, open the editor integrated in Mod Organizer 2:

10.1 INI Tweaks

In your skyrim.ini, edit the following line:

[Grass]
iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure=15


Let's tweak the grass density. The default setting is 20, but after configuring your INIs with BethINI you have most likely a different value now. Any value between 20 and 100 is possible, lower value means more density and lower frame rate. A performance-friendly value would be 60. For most people I would recommend a value between 40 and 60.

In your skyrim.ini, edit the following line:

[Grass]
iMinGrassSize=


The last tweak is optional, but recommended by preeum (author of Verdant).

In your skyrimprefs.ini, edit the following line or add it if it does not yet exist:

[Display]
bShadowsOnGrass=0

Remember to click save before closing the INI editor.
