What is this u-grids thing? I saw 'grids' in the Skyrim Configurator, but I don't think that's the same. U-Grids is a mod or something right? I'm not using it.

Basically Skyrim is split into hundreds of thousands of sections (uGrids). By default, Skyrim loads the five nearest sections within your line of sight, plus the one your character inhabits. Beyond those five sections the entire world is rendered using low-detail trees, objects, and terrain, which, for the most part, cannot be modified or enhanced by .ini tweaks.

Soooo if you increase uGrids as I have done to the value of 7, it increase the world detail at the cost of frame rate. Some say the difference between 5 and 7 isn't that noticeable, worth testing to see what is to your liking.

The value uGridsToLoad=7 is what I have changed in Skyrimprefs.ini

Altering the uGrid setting will modify your save game. If you ever wish to revert to a lower uGrid setting due to performance issues, the correct procedure must be followed to ensure that you do not make that save inaccessible, or possibly even corrupt, resulting in the complete loss of your character data and game progression.

Here are the steps to revert back to uGridsToLoad=5 should the tweak prove too demanding for your system, or if Skyrim becomes unstable!

  1. Backup SkyrimPrefs.ini, Skyrim.ini and your Skyrim ‘Saves’ folder.
  2. Right click on Skyrim.ini in My Documents\My Games\Skyrim and uncheck ‘Read Only’ in the file’s properties.
  3. Load your last save game.
  4. Press tilde on your keyboard, most commonly placed directly to the left of ‘1.’ If it is elsewhere, the keyboard symbol should be ` or ~. If all else fails hit every key on the keyboard until a large, semi-transparent overlay appears on the bottom half of the screen.
  5. In the now-visible in-game console type setini “ugridstoload:general” 5
  6. Hit Return on your keyboard.
  7. Type saveini
  8. Hit Return on your keyboard.
  9. Type refreshini
  10. Hit Return on your keyboard.
  11. Close the console using tilde.
  12. Create a new save game.
  13. Exit Skyrim.
  14. Delete Skyrim.ini in My Documents\My Games\Skyrim.
  15. Reload the Skyrim configuration tool.
  16. Close the tool.
  17. Re-tweak Skyrim.ini if necessary (and SkyrimPrefs.ini if it has since been modified).
  18. Reload Skyrim and your most recent save.
  19. Enjoy the game.

I'm off to bed - good luck!

Milamber ENB Config and skyrim prefs.ini 816k .zip file
I have included my enb with my skyrimprefs.ini (make sure that goes in my documents\my games\skyrim
Note: My uGrids is set to 7
All the other files go in the skyrim folder... it also has a slightly darker night to give the rock tones better colour, im not into bright white/grey rock at midnight!
My skyrim.ini is heavily modified with softer shadows, ultra radial blur level for post processing, also threaded optimisations have been set for grass, light, actor, and object fading. Grass has enhanced shading too *looks great when sun shines through it.
I also set decal and actor particles to max and shadow bias smile.gif I get very good fps, even in 3d were it renders everything twice! Good luck!
EDIT: Forgot to include mods! All these mods have been tested for compatibility, all i can suggest is you dont use Skyrim HD - 2K Textures , that mod smashes anything that is specific to an object and imo doesnt do justice at all. Stick with the modders that create mods specific to a particular item.. this I have found to be best result when it comes to detail, but each to their own.

Thanks again! So much help. I know what I'll be doing this morning when I get home. That is after I stock up on Gaming Supplies. (read: beverages and munchies)

Make sure you enable ambiant occulsion in your video card control panel to as high as possible, my enb configuration doesn't use "enb SSAO".

Will do! Now go to sleep! (I really don't care whether you sleep or not, but you should be rested before you see my results later. wink.gif)

I gave your config a try, I'm liking the colors and settings from ENB, finally glad I got rid of the blue tint from FXAA tool but there seems to be something up with your shadows using your skyrimprefs, the lower part of character shadows pretty much aren't there, not sure which setting is causing it D; I'm still gonna use your ENB though wink.gif

Well, I installed most of the mods that Milamber listed, thought a few I just passed on. I wasn't able to get the ENB working, and I'm thinking it might have to do with that Ambient Occlusion setting. I don't have an option anywhere in CCC to enable it.

Either way, the mods are awesome, and I tweaked SkyrimPrefs.ini to my liking. I still may play with FXAA Injector a bit to fine tune, but I'm liking what I'm seeing.

Thanks again Milamber, and everyone. This thread, as well as the official threads are so chock full of great info from wonderful members like you guys!

Thanks for the heads up, it was the fShadowBiasScale, it is now set to 0 instead of 0.5!!! For a less pixelated look shadow blur can be turned up to 10, attached is new config with working shadow for player fixed and shadow filter set to ultra.
