The mod creator was banned from the nexus unfortunately so he has his mod on either that website or steam workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=7914

That config tool is bloody awesome! I wish I had the time to hammer out the perfect settings for my rig. Regardless, it seems that what's mostly holding me back is my VRAM,

if you don't care about texture quality you can try this: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/14504 it makes some of the textures 512x512. It will lower the quality a little bit but it will save you a lot of vram. I currently use it right now smile.gif

I messed around a bit with some settings and now have a major halo effect around most of the character models when in any kind of outdoor light. What shadow settings typically cause this? Some of the settings leave me clueless as to what they actually do (Skyrim configurator).
post #8564 of 12885
it should have a screenshot of what it will look like next to each setting on the configurator. See if changing the settings around will have that halo effect or not. I am not familiar with Skyrim configuring.

The previews don't seem to want to work for me. Regardless, I gave some of the lighting presets a shot (presets in the configurator) and very high seems to produce some gorgeous lighting all around (as gorgeous as it gets without mods) and eliminates the halo effect. I may give the lower res. textures a shot, as outside my VRAM is maxed almost all of the time and I get framerate stutters every so often. Do you notice a huge difference between the low and 'high' res textures?

The next card I buy (in the distant future) will definitely be one with extra VRAM over the standard.

i do notice a reduction of about 100-200 in VRAM usage for me. It does seem to get maxed less often but it still does. i hate having a 1gb card frown.gif

I had a dragon texture mod from the Nexus I think, or perhaps the Workshop but anyways I can't find it now. It was a complete texture replacement not just colour, and very high resolution. Any leads?

Really? I can only see four and none of them are increased texture resolution:/ I'd also love to know what chaps use for characters to make them look so realistic, the main one I can find is XCE which I've always used but it doesn't hold a tealight.

i use cbbe, chbhsc , Apachii sky hair and my favorite race mod Succubus race mod. You could also try Lunari or Temptress race. Those 2 races are IMO the top 2 races in Skyrim.
