Not using ENB.

Added 2K texture pack "Lite"

There are quite a bit of texture inconsistencies, on the walls of whiterun, the top bits that are curved have standard extremelylowresolution textures whereas the walls themselves have the new textures.
Enabled TAVE - Whiterun Exterior and Interior, no more FPS drops and VRAM runs at 1500.


Could it be that uGridsToLoad=7 vs 5 has a major performance impact? Or uExterior Cell Buffer=64 vs 32?

Ugridstoload=7 has a massive performance impact (at least on my system - 8320 @ 4.4GHz). I would personally recommend following a guide like STEP or Skyrim Revisited to get most of Skyrim looking awesome (using just textures/meshes, and avoiding scripted mods unless necessary), then (using ModOrganizer) try out some other textures/mods you like the look of.

Yes, I'd be careful with uGrids. It will beat you system to death if you set it too high. The only reason I upped my uGrids was because of the horrific waterfall lods. I found a mod for the waterfalls that somebody had managed to make and it works fairly well. I can't think of what it's called right now.

This is the mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/40564/?

 

It's certainly a good one, and a lot better than turning up ugridstoload.

That's it! thumb.gif

Wow thanks for linking that waterfall mod. It really is horrific how utterly bad waterfalls look from a distance or even fairly close until you get right next to it.

But yes, upping ugrids will impact performance a lot. Could be part of your problem. And I don't know if its the same with Enhanced Cities, but Enhanced Towns always impacted my performance a ton when I was around them to the point that it was sometimes unplayable. I promptly uninstalled it.

My performance is fine now even with all the city mods, though i disabled solitude and whiterun interior due to lights turning on and off and some performance issues in them, not big omes but enough to be annoying.

I have ugrids at 7 and buffer 64. Anyeay i think it wad related to 4096 shadows or 2k texturepack full.

Ugrids will activate npc in those outlieing areas and that will have a huge impact on performance. Ugrids of 5 will not incur near the impact. My system is way below yours in terms of skyrim performance ability, but I am blowing your doors off. I can only figure ugrids is what is holding you back.

Scroll down first post on http://forums.bethsoft.com/topic/1274926-ugridstoload-skyrimini-comparisons-and-explanation-default-57911/ and look at the comparison shots. I honestly don't think ugrids 7 is worth it at all.

 

Try this instead: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/48227/?tab=2&navtag=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nexusmods.com%2Fskyrim%2Fajax%2Fmodfiles%2F%3Fid%3D48227&pUp=1 which makes distant terrain look a lot better, and increase the number+distance of trees + grass in skyrimprefs.ini and, while you're at it, make your shadow map really high resolution. If I had the CPU, shadow map would be one of the first things I'd bump up as I can only just about manage on 2048 and get decent framerates.

post #10780 of 12888
I run 4096 all on shadows with little issues.

on ugrids think like this:

1= all squares touching yours so a 3x3 grid = 9 squares

3= 5x5 = 25 squares

5= 7x7 = 49 squares

7= 9x9 = 81 squares

Not sure of exactly how ugrids is set square or hex but you get the idea. So 5 ugrid would activate 49 squares and all npcs and quests within them. 7 ugrids activate 81 a huge jump. So you can see why you would get lower performance.
