BUG: When you are on the Azura's star quest (forgot the name) when you reach the skeleton dude who owns the broken azuras star the room has so many shadow stripes that it makes my eyes burn. Fix this area if possible.

It's installed and not working for me.

i install this and i still have shadow-stripping, but maybe my PC is wooden and that`s why it doesn`t work

it skyrimprefs.ini
Daimoniki Jun 12 @ 3:41pm 
nooooo,it is not an expansion. the the files are on vamilla skyrim.
Demon King Punk Jun 11 @ 8:57am 
My skyrim prefs doesn't have a shadowbiasscale. I run normal skyrim without any expansions.

thanks alot for that!!

I love this mod but I am on sort of a mod diet :3
Daimoniki Jun 10 @ 8:10pm 
when you go into your files, do a search for skyrim. go nto your skyrim folders and look for a file called skyrimprefs.ini and open it. The result should be a lot of words and numbers open in wordpad, or some other typer program. do a control+f search for shadowbiasscale. when you find it, it should say something like shadowbiasscale=0.5 Here is where you can change the shadow stripping. if you replace the 0.5 with a larger number(i used 9) the stipping should go away. the larger the number, the less of stipping will occur. after you cahnge the number, make sure you just save, not save as the wordpad. this should fix the problem.

I was unaware you could do this, more info please?
Daimoniki Jun 10 @ 6:55pm 
go in to your skyrim file, them into skyrimprefs.ini then change shadow bias scale to a larger number. you don't need a mod

thanks for your tips :)

@Arthedáin: I think this might be a problem with your INI file, if you don't have any custom modifications, I'd recommend deleting your INI's hopefully this will solve the problem, if not it might be another mod (perhaps outdated?) so you may need to disable one by one to find the exact cause.

what can I do when having a line in front of me which loads the shadows really near to me?

its like a line in front of me which loads the shadows only 5 feet away from me and while I move it moves with me, it looks very ugly, plz help!

Works Great where it is important, I did notice some outdoor Striping, but I'm guessing this wasn't meant to fix that, thx for the mod.. :D
Light_112 Mar 20 @ 1:36am 
simple but cool mod, thanks for the mod
Not Me Mar 17 @ 8:22am 
looks good :)
Wolodyjowski Mar 7 @ 8:26pm <--- check that out, lol. that's striped shadows using this mod on vanilla textures ultra graphics quality. Other than that I didn't see any other occurences of it (yet) but I started the game just today on that playthrough with the mod.

@jhnwht, look at the mod dates man, of course it wont work in miraak's temple. dragonborn was released feb 2013, the mod was last updated aug 2012. mr smart man folks
jhnwht Feb 15 @ 5:10am 
Doesn't work in Miraak's Temple.

Fuchsschweif. Thanks for the info. Perhaps BOSS is glitched, which is very possible. Wish I could play my game and find out. I keep starting a new game & it crashes just when the dragon appears, during the second flash on the screen. Google keeps coming up with dead ends, so the solution eludes me.

funny thing is, even though it is included in the unofficial skyrim patch, and i certainly do have all those patches activated, it does not work for me.
so, i downloaded this mod, no more striped shadows! but as soon as i deactivate it - back to the stripes.
paulzuk Feb 9 @ 2:11am 
Just a heads up. If you already use the Unofficial Skyrim Patch, there is no need to download this, because it's already included. BOSS picked it up as an error and advised me to delete it as a result. Perhaps this is worth mentioning in the description. All the same, appreciate what you have done. I just want to help people avoid conflicts in their game, especially those who don't know enough to use Nexus Mod Manager, Wrye Smash and BOSS.

I almost miss those striped bastards now. They were my steadfast friends way back in my sneaking days, as I crept over rocks in the moonlight . . . but that was before the arrow.

Great mod. It is almost unnerving seeing clean surfaces.
Darth_Stu Jan 24 @ 12:21pm 
one day i was in my home looking around at my creation and thought f**K me i hate those shadows i wish there was a mod to fix them. and then you came along and rocked my world with your simple but effective solution.
nice work buddy.

Thank You,Almighty Lord Of Graphics ;-;
merel_17 Jan 11 @ 5:23am 
It didn't work for me:(
Sir, you are being hunted, by people who love your work!
Genji Dec 17, 2013 @ 5:41pm 
Thank you for your work.
King of Hearts Dec 15, 2013 @ 3:30pm 
THANK YOU. If you're ever in the Reno NV area, I owe you a beer.
Dr. D Ildo Dec 11, 2013 @ 9:04am 
Thank you! Finally my Solitude house doesn't look like a waste of munny!
Vixoberl Dec 10, 2013 @ 1:50pm

Noudbuk Nov 22, 2013 @ 6:13am

Dr.Sawbones Nov 21, 2013 @ 3:33pm

Zathmi Nov 3, 2013 @ 5:40pm 
Works like a charm. Thanks for getting rid of that annoyance! :)
RoboPatton Oct 30, 2013 @ 2:13pm 

BIG PROPS! You made the stripes go away outside! Thanks!
danielmedfors Oct 3, 2013 @ 11:20am 
not working
Silverhawk Sep 8, 2013 @ 2:11am 
Spent a 100 hours playing and whenever I go home to breeze, the shadow bug really ruined the atomsphere for me. Doesn't work in other areas but meh. Thanks for fixing this, have a thumbs up
Tserq Sep 2, 2013 @ 9:45am 
That shadows at home pretty ugly...
...but couldnt enter breeze home after installing this fix mod :(
|rB| BeasT Sep 2, 2013 @ 12:10am 
Guys just go into your SkyrimPrefs.ini and set Shadow Bias Scale to this


That will fix all your outdoor shadow striping. To fix indoor shadows you have to use a mod like this
Metis Sep 1, 2013 @ 3:47pm 
Gave this a shot and it dosent seem to work for me either. Spotty at best. Will check back love thave those pesky shadow fixws (out & Indoor)
karateboyjk Aug 16, 2013 @ 4:49pm 
it isnt working for me either
littlefiredragon Jul 31, 2013 @ 5:11pm 
It doesn't always work, but when it does, it makes things look twenty times better. It is... the most interesting mod in the world.

Seriously, though. There are a lot of places this mod doesn't work. There are, however, many places where it DOES work, and those were the ones that needed it most. Radiant Raiment, the house in solitude, and probably other locations look a LOT better. I'm hesitant to install ANY mod at all, even through steam, and even I recommend this mod.
Lucius Romanus Jul 27, 2013 @ 4:15pm 
This is also not working for me, I can upload some screenshots if needed. I'll stay subscribed hoping this will be fixed soon :(
That guy Jul 24, 2013 @ 3:35pm 
Works fine indoors, but outdoors you still see it on rocks and snow.
Agent Luthardt Jul 21, 2013 @ 1:40pm

Vertronic Jun 26, 2013 @ 3:44pm
