More Dynamic Shadows with Striping Fixed

--------------------------------------------TOTALLY ENHANCED VERSION---------------------------------------


-----------------------------------ALL NEW LIGHTS, ALL NEW HD SHADOWS---------------------------------

----------------------------NO MORE BUGS, CRASHES, GLITCHES AND STRIPING------------------------

Works perfectly fine and the change is astounding! - Skyrim Japan

It was absolutely worth waiting for! - N4G

The best graphics mod for Skyrim! - Nexus Forums

The recommended visual mod for Skyrim! - Steam Workshop Users

Visual revolution in Skyrim! - Dark Side Of Gaming

This mod adds more shadow-casting lights in interiors, adds cool-looking effects for more realism, fixes wrong light placement and fixes shadow striping in all interiors of the game while keeping Bethesda's original style of lighting and design!
It is the only mod that uses the absolutely amazing JIT scripts which allow the player to see more shadow-casting lights in interiors.
Now almost every light will cast dynamic shadows and there won't be ugly striping in the game's interiors and exteriors!


-In order to run this mod with Hearthfire DLC or to prevent crashes when you enter player homes you should download this mod as well: - and you should load it after the More Dynamic Shadows mod.
-If you have CTD's or random Crashes with this mod, Please turn off other mods to see which mod causes the conflict!
-If you go into interior and you find missing walls,textures or ground then simply make a save and then restart Skyrim and everything will be fine!
-Keep in mind that if you have a non-English version of the game, this changes all interior names to English ones.
- The mod brings slight perfomance drops when you're playing the game on a low-end PC. It drops FPS only in interiors though.


-If you have any performance issues you should do this:
Add iNumHWThreads=4 line under [General] to your SKYRIM.INI file, run the game and verify HW Thread Count=4 in your rendererinfo.txt file (the number should be how many cores your CPU has)


-Shadow Striping Fix
-Realistic Lighting Overhaul
-Breezehome, Hjerim, Honeyside and other player homes mods
-Other mods that make major changes to interiors.


5.HOW TO FIX THE SHADOW STRIPING OUTDOORS (On rocks, ground, grass, trees and objects)
-The 'outdoors' striping problem is controlled by the fShadowBiasScale setting in the SkyrimPref.ini file. The lower the value i.e. 0.1000 will cause more striping. The higher the value, the less the striping.

Skyrim has more than one .ini file, man. You can find most of them in User/Documents/My Games/Skyrim.

how do i find the .INI file?

It works with the DLC's but it alters only some of their interiors.

Does it support the DLC's?

Man, your PC should perform a lot better. Maybe try lowering your res and use the lowest shadow quality config possible in your ini file. And then work your way up from there to find the perfect balance quality/performance. :)

I know it is low. Is insane how I get only 22fps, since it is not a shitty pc (I think). It's a Quad-core @2.7ghz with a 8GB RAM @dualchannel and a 1GB/128bit GPU (HD5550). I think the problem is the shadows. Using them in high or ultra drops my ingame FPS to 13~10, INSIDE... I already tried some tweaks, thats how I managed to get 22fps. :/ whatever, whx for the fast reply! I hope I be able to upgrade (setup a new one, actually) my pc soon. I NEED to play it on HD xD

In some interiors it will improve it but in others it will drop, yes. Maybe you should try to use some performance tweaks available here in the workshop, on the internet overall or in nexus because 22 fps is low man. :) I recommend using this mod only if you get at least 5-10 fps more from the default game. That way you can have a stable experience at all times.

PuuLoo. I'm running skyrim at 22fps with the default Medium Shadows config. This mod will drop my fps?
