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 to all interiors, adds day/night cycle effect to all ambient lights 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 JustInTime 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.

Causes crashing when saving or loading another area

It is in the Candleheart inn which is located exactly in the middle of Windhelm just in front of the Palace of Kings. :)

Sorry to ask, but does anyone know the location of the second to last picture?
The one with the circular oven with the chimney going straight up?

Sorry, but it was still causing Breezhome to CTD. Great mod, but sadly just doesn't work for me, even with the fix.

There is some very weird light+texture brightness pop in in a couple of places, for example High Hrothgar, where the Greybeards are, once you enter the place, go a little forward and the first path to the left you will see the wall all of a sudden appears brighter, continuing you will see lights cast onto the walls suddenly appear.

It only happens with this mod loaded, I disabled all other lighting mods, deleted files, re-checked integrity to redownload Skyrim files and disabled/Removed ENB's.

I can make a short Youtube video to demonstrate the problem.

@Aerandir A.

Are you running it with Hearthfire? If you are, then check the NOTES part of the description to find out how to easily fix the problem.

Thanks for getting back to me. appreciate it!

It works with Enhanced Cities but it won't work with the Enhanced Inns because that mod changes some interiors and lights. :)

does this work with the enhanced towns/inns stuff?
