Vurt Flora Overhaul (Redux)

Description
All credits go to Vurt and his wonderful skyrim mod Skyrim Flora Overhaul. Look at this url: skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/141 As template I took his SFO v1.5 and made my own special edition, which can be used in combination with Skyrim - Nicer shrubs...
This mod here is pure grass, no trees inside:

FAQ
(1) What the hell do the videos here? These vids do not contain any mod related stuff. It's music of my choice. I earn no money for that. The music of malukah inspired me to this mod.

(2) Where can I find ini-files?
The files 'SkyrimPref.ini' and 'Skyrim.ini' you'll find in path '\My Games\Skyrim\' as subfolder of your own documents folder.

(3) What can I do, ''all my grass has disappeared, I've tried installing/uninstalling grass mods, but nothing works''. I found that on forums.nexusmods.com ''topic/491133-all-grass-has-disappeared'':
- SkyrimPrefs.ini ( like topic above )
[Grass]
b30GrassVS=1
fGrassMinStartFadeDistance=1000

- SkyrimPrefs.ini ( on my pc-system )
[Grass]
b30GrassVS=1
; *** Vertex Shaders v3.0 switch on/off
fGrassStartFadeDistance=7000.0000
fGrassMaxStartFadeDistance=7000.0000
fGrassMinStartFadeDistance=0.0000

(4) What should I do after installing this mod to tweak my ingame graphic? Next two ini-changes are useful, but not necessary for proper running. If entry doesn't exist then game takes default values.
- Skyrim.ini
[grass]
iMinGrassSize=20
; 10 == you'll get a grass carpet
; 20 == default, recommended by me
; 40 == grass consists of isles
; each value can be combined with ''Lush Greens'' to get a higher grass density
; it contains the grass mesh-files from nexus mod ''Lush Grass'' version 1.4 only, but this mod can
; really decrease your FPS rate ingame

iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure=5
; 3 == default, you'll see the first three grass types on specific landscapes only
; 7 == some landscape ground textures have more than three grass textures inside
; --- See also CK image on top for a better understanding !! ---
; if you want to see all grass types then take a higher value than 3 (maximum is 5 on this mod)
; Yes 'iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure' is supposed to be spelled ''texure'.'

(5) My Skyrim lagged a bit, What can I do? Maybe next settings help to get a better performance.
- SkyrimPrefs.ini
[Display]
iBlurDeferredShadowMask=3
; default=3 (smooth), 2 (sharp), 1 (more sharpen), 0 (most sharpen)

iPresentInterval=0
; default=1 ( 1 = on ), ( 0 = off )
; This influence the monitor V-Sync, can increase the ingame FPS (verbessert Bildwiederholrate)
; But keep in mind: If you use '0' instead of '1' then your game could have strange CTD's.

iShadowMapResolution=2048
; default = 4096 (very high), 2048 (high), 1024 (middle), 512 (low)
bTreesReceiveShadows=0
; default = 0
bDrawLandShadows=1
; default = 0
bShadowsOnGrass=0
; default = 1

(6) Why did you steal his work? I wasn't able to contact Vurt directly.
By the way, the author was asked in Nexus[forums.nexusmods.com] and he approves:
''Nah, he didn't ask for permission but he links to the original mod
and gives me credit for the work. It's all good.''

-=- Big THANXs to VURT -=- Don't forget, he is the master, I'm a big fan of his amazing work
if 'Vurt Skyrim Flora Overhaul' wouldn't exist then this mod would be smoke on the water!


And thank you to ''mucusSTfriend'' for making that mod reliable.

I've tried many grass/flora combinations during my 200+ hours, including the original SFO, and I'm convinced this + Nicer shrubs, plants & grass + Lush grass from Nexus is the winning mix. Adds lots of color and variety without being overwhelming (as opposed to, say, Grassification Project) with negligible clipping (which drove me crazy in Unique Grasses and Groundcovers), all with minimal performance hit even to my pitiful plebeian laptoaster (Verdant slaughtered my FPS). The only thing I miss is the cute little cattails other mods often add by river/pondsides, as they make for a visually smoother transition from land to water. :)

Thanks so much for making these mods! Please never take them down, I don't even know how I'd play Skyrim anymore.
