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, but I dedicate it to malukah.

(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 because script timings.

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 just noticed that I haven't been able to use this mod since that day. Was wondering if you knew why.

@stebeven: All my mods are free to download, no payment. I try to make Skyrim looks better, not trying to earn money with my mods. Cheers..

10/10 would plant again

For some reason every time I load Skyrim and it goes through the list of mods it fails to get information from this one. This happened the day paid mods were released. Did you change this to paid or something?

@sirpunchwood1: "any incompatible mod", not really.. maybe it is related to the last steam update. After steam has been updated on my PC all my mods were unsubscribed. Ridiculous, but the truth. For each subscribed steam mod I had them to unsubscribe and then subscribe again. That's why I hate automatically updates! About your issue, you could dowload tes5Edit. Start this application, into the opened window do a right mouseclick and click in the context menu on 'Select None'. Now check mark every mod (*.esp only) you like to compare with this mod. If ready click ok button and wait while tes5Edit is loading data. If you see finished in debug output, enlarge on the left window my mod, click on all plus icons. If any mod uses also flora datas you'll see in the right window my mod name and the name of the other (skyrim.esm, update.esm can be ignored).

Correct. Sorry for being a little rude in my previous comment. I was just confused because I have no other mods that edit the flora, do you know any incompatible mods?
ReDragon  [author] Apr 13 @ 4:07pm 
@sirpunchwood1: That's really bad, but it cannot be compatible to all mods on the wild. Your trouble was over after unsubscribe, I'm right?
