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). Click SAVE at the bottom of your INI editor before you proceed.

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.
