DYNDOLOD (REGULAR)

DYNDOLOD WITH REGULAR TREE LOD

Generating DynDOLOD with regular tree LOD is quite peformance-friendly and will result in better, but still flat distant trees.

You can find instructions to generate 3D tree LOD here. Be warned that it’s a lot more performance-intense and requires a minimum of 4GB VRAM.

TEXGEN

  • Launch TexGenx64 through Mod Organizer 2.
  • Check the recommended settings below.
  • After adapting them, hit Start.
  • The generation will take a while (about 10mins for me) and I recommend you step away from your PC in the meantime.

TEXGEN OUTPUT

  • Once TexGen is done, click Save and Exit.
  • Go to {Your Modding Folder}\Tools\DynDOLOD.
  • Cut (don’t copy) the TexGen_Output folder and paste it to Mod Organizer 2\mods.
  • Refresh Mod Organizer 2 (F5) and it will appear at the bottom of your mod order.
  • Move it up in your mod order all the way until it’s right below Skyrim High Definition LODs and activate it.

DYNDOLOD

  • Launch DynDOLOD through MO2.
  • A window will come up, click Advanced.
  • You can see all worldspaces in a list at the top. Right-click inside and click Select all.
  • Next, select a preset – Low or Medium or High.
  • Under Options, Generate tree LOD should be checked.
  • Double-check with the picture below that everything is configured correctly.
  • Click OK.
  • Step away from your PC while DynDOLOD is working (typically takes around 20 minutes for me).

DYNDOLOD OUTPUT

  • Once DynDOLOD is done, click Save and Exit.
  • Go to {Your Modding Folder}\Tools\DynDOLOD.
  • Cut (don’t copy) the DynDOLOD_output folder and paste it to Mod Organizer 2\mods.
  • Refresh (F5) Mod Organizer and it will appear at the bottom of your load order.
  • Place it below the DISTANT TERRAIN separator, below the xLODGen [Output], and activate it.
  • Move DynDOLOD.esm below your other ESMs at the top of your load order and leave DynDOLOD.esp at the very bottom.
