Rock Texture Glitch - Please Help
So this problem has been going on without mods. I recently installed a rock texture pack in the hopes of just replacing the glitchy textures, but as you can see in the images, they've done little to nothing in changing the glitch. I have had this problem without any mods, or dlcs. I'm wondering if there's a simple fix, or a mod to download.

Or if it's just me being an idiot and not having a good enough graphics card/graphics setting. My card is brand new however, so I doubt this.

My laptop is a Lenovo ideapad y410p with ssd and 1tb memory, with 8gb ram. I'm running medium specifications to get good framerate, and I run all DLCs, and generally a few mods. I'd post my mod list, but I'd have to hand type everything and that's time consuming, so I have 32 ESPs

Any help you can give me is well appreciated!

Shadow stripping is what I meant! I think I only noticed it on mountains. Thank you!! I'll try it out tonight

It seems that while this mod does affect indoor shadow stripping, it does not affect outdoor shadow stripping. However! I do now have the name of the thing that I've got a problem with :P

IF you go into your SkyrimPrefs.ini in my documents and make the following changes, it disables all shadows.

"What I did was this: ( Version )

1) Edit: fShadowDistance to 0.0000
fShadowInteriorDistance to 0.0000
fShadowLODStartFade to 0.0000

2) Then I edited the SkyrimPrefs located in My Documents\My Games\Skyrim and in The Game Folder\Skyrim (e.g: X:\Program Files\Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim\Skyrim\SyrimPrefs.ini)


Hope that helped. I am also adding my SkyrimPrefs.ini set to LOW settings.

set the file to read only after your changes"


I would fiddle around with it n see what setting you can deal with.

That worked quite well, though I am missing some essential shadows. Oh well. Better fps anyway right? Thank you!
