No prob. I personally use Nightingale Prime. Was lucky to get it while it was on Skyrim Nexus. Amazing quality. I also started using Triss Armor (see last page for pics). That comes in multiple colors are all are really awesome.

And uhh..If anyone has a REALLY awesome looking hide armor/ leather armor mod, I'd like to get rid of that armor ASAP, looks so ugly when most of the other clothes on people are modded and look high res. Especially since my favorite girl bard is wearing hide.

That nightingale armor mod is crazy.... definitely downloading that for my character.
post #6137 of 12885
Yea I use the Hoodless Cowl from the Black Sacrament armor with the Default Deep Black Triss Armor for my Wood Elf Assassin. Also downloaded the Viper warpaint (modeled after the facepaint from the character Viper in the movie Doomsday).

Because of the way GameByro is coded, the InteriorCellBuffer and ExteriorCellBuffer settings can affect the stutter should you turn them to higher settings as the game will be loading more and more textures/meshes during the game. If you played Oblivion, you'll know what I'm talking about with the occasional "Loading..." text that happened when you ran around on horseback. When I transferred Oblivion to my SSD my stutters went away almost automatically.
So if you don't have Skyrim on your SSD's and want it on them without having to transfer your entire Steam directory, try out this program. I'm using it to put Skyrim on my SSD and keep the other 200 GB of games in my Steam directory on my HDD.

If you do however have it on your SSD, what is your VRAM looking like in the game world? If it is near max, say 1.49 GB then it is probably full and having to stream textures from your RAM. When this happens, more lag is induced through your Northbridge and you start to get a bottleneck which slows down the GPU because you are clogging up the path from your Northbridge to Southbridge with propogation delay of textures. Same reason why L1 cache is faster than L2 cache, and faster than L3 cache, and RAM and so forth smile.gif

Hi, am using SSD's in AHCI atm, windows for 1 and skyrim for the other and i have 1k-2k teaxtures only. (skyrim hd lite and serious landscape 2k lite)

Skyrim HD, regardless of the version, is not very well optimized... apparently the author didn't create mip-maps for the majority of the textures.. which causes extreme frame drops and stuttering. If you don't get the stutters with vanilla textures then that is probably the culprit. Try the DDSopt mod, just make sure you backup your textures folder first.
