More Dynamic Shadows with Striping Fixed

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

---------------------RE-DESIGNED LIGHTING FOR A NEXT GENERATION EXPERIENCE-------------------

-----------------------------------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 and exteriors of the game while keeping Bethesda's style of lighting and placement!
It is the only mod that uses the absolutely amazing JIT scripts for more visible 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.


-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.


There is minor performance drop in larger interiors for less-powerful PC's.
The mod does not add more shadow-casting lights to exteriors because of the recent patches from Bethesda.(only interiors)

Yup especially when people and press said that Alien: Isolation was the shit immersion-wise and it didn't even have proper dynamic lighting, self shadowing... Probably because the enemies could see the shadow and act upon; alas, it's still an idiotic way to implement... God, I want my ray-tracing in games already :/

I feel the same. I really enjoy good games whether they have nice graphics or not but sometimes i turn into a graphics whore and want dynamic lighting and shit in games :D

Hey, thank you for your informative and kind answer. I can't really enjoy the games nowadays because of this issue. Have you seen the Oblivion E3 demo's shadows? Wish they kept those intact in both Syrim and Oblivion.

Hey man, i enjoy your entusiasm and i was thinking just the same when working on it but it is not possible... The engine has a lot of limits and the lighting of the game breaks if you try to make all lights cast shadows. But this mod and the Realistic Lighting Overhaul which i also worked on with Sydney666 are the closest you can get to getting the most lights casting shadows in the game :)

Hi PuuLoo, is it possisble to make EVERYTHING cast shadows throughtout the whole game? I have a GTX 970 (1500/8000) and I'm ready to play the game on 900p 25 fps :) Is it something easy to update the mod? Thanks, K.

This looks great, too bad it's not on Nexus.
Deleted my comments to make room, thanks for your time, and the mod itself ofcourse ^^
