Description
--------------------------------------------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










1.DESCRIPTION
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!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.NOTES
-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: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27053 - 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!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.PERFORMANCE
-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)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4.INCOMPATIBLE MODS
-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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.NOTICE(Warning)
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)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

oh I see, I'm just glad it's almost unnoticable now, thanks for the hard work

@paperclip19_89

Man, you are talking about exterior striping and that cannot be fully fixed.... It is a problem with the engine and shadows. :)

Mostly snow, some boulders at times, other mods were interfering I think so the more I cut down on them the better it improved, they clean up when I get near them but they pop up only every once in a while now

@paperclip19_99

Hey, please tell me where exactly you are getting those stripes and i can fix them! :)
paperclip19_89 Mar 30 @ 5:25am 
still getting stripes but they are to a minimum at least

Thanks so much for getting back to me PuuLoo. :) Your mod makes a huge difference to the in-game lighting (I did some comparisons before & after) so I would really hate to give up on it over the Breezehome compatibility issue.

(Not sure if related to the CTD workaround, but I noticed that with the fix installed, Lydia wouldn't follow me into Breezehome)

Hey man, good to hear you are enjoying it! You are writing at the best time because i was just wondering if i should fix it and not need another mod to do the job so i think by the time next week comes it should be done and updated! :) Thanks for taking the time!
