So far still nothing..
Made my third alter ego. Dark elf - maniac, will stealth kill anything, what is killable xD
Would like to Know:
WHICH mods do you guys think affect Performance the most ???? (which ones are likely to reduce FPS)
High texture landscape mods.
I've never modded. How should I go about it? I mostly want to get ones that make it prettier.
I think im on a level where things got a bit easier now, or the forsworn just didn't "leveled" with me imma up the difficulty now i guess >, jes made another video of my shadow warrior, encoding and uploading...
head to skyrim nexus, look at the mod you want, instructions follow instructions on a per mod basis
Most of them you simply move folders to the appropriate location.
Others require more work but that's what the instructions are for.
i recommend downloading the nexus mod manager, and using that. most mods have a "download with manager" option, and it's imo a much easier way of handling all those files.
Yeah though Kurgan shied me away from that, at least at that point a couple few weeks ago, for a good, specific reason(s) which I can't quite remember now. Maybe he can fill us in again...
i know someone posted a console command for divorce,would be of great help if someone could post it again
Here it is:
I also found another tip -- if you can't clean your house in Windhelm from the blood and body-parts go in the console and type df492.disable
I just got another bug. I just did the companions quest and returned back to whiterun. When I left whiterun I saw a dragon and went after it. I went to draw my weapons and couldn't. I couldn't do anything i.e no menu, wait, attack or jump. I decided to load a previous save and seen I'm now a skeever. I'm afraid to leave whiterun now just to be turned back again.
Anyone see if theres a fix to this or a way around it? I've been googling my butt off trying to figure it out.
Level 98..:shadedshuI have every perk in Sneak and people can find me much easier than when I was say 90.
Have you tried this perhaps?
It works for me, should do the trick for 59xx series too, you could force a profile with RadeonPro too
things like rings,enchants to your armour,amulets that increase your stealth % can really help
You can if you're on a horse.
Also this works too, taken from the 4GB Patch readme.
Going to put it on a spoiler since it is long
(I intentionally quoted myself to add to the post)
I've read on the web that Skyrim is very CPU-Bound and that the main thing that is stressing the CPU is shadows...
Is this correct?
Also, should I decide to turn off the shadows (or reduce shadow quality). Do you guys think it will relieve the CPU enough to allow for a higher FPS ???
Yes, shadows are rendered by the CPU at this stage and thus removing them you'd see an FPS increase, anyway your CPU is up to the task.
I suppose you are having troubles in cities, right?
- All my settings are maxed
- Most of my .ini files are tweaked for MAX image quality
- I'm HEAVILY modded
And since I've installed the "lush trees" and "lush grass" and "skyrim Flora Overhaul" mods, I've seen a little FPS decrease...
Enough for me to consider turning off shadows. With the Rig I have, I expect to play everything maxed @ a solid 60 FPS, but this game is poorly optimized...
so I'm thinking "heck... if I turn off shadows and reduce the amount of stress on the CPU to achieve a solid 60 FPS (everywhere) with all the beautiful texture mods I have, why not?..."
Have you touched the uGrids setting? And if so which value have you given it?
uGrids has a huge impact on FPS, especially if you increase it over 7.
And yes, turning off shadows would increase performance but at which visual cost? I know that shadows are pixelated but I wouldn't play without them, it's a personal matter, anyway
It wasn't loading all my texture packs. I started double checking and a lot of them weren't being loaded, so I stopped using it. It is in beta and maybe that is fixed now though.
Another gameplay video i made
Shadow Warrior + Dragon Battle
(note: only around 6min instead of 13min lol)
the preview AMD drivers work well, the previous 11.12 set made my game really laggy
How will that utilize more of my GPU? -.-
