Finally "fixed" my issue with Diplomatic Immunity quest. I think that quest was just broken to me as there were consistent CTD's at certain points every time. I don't understand why it happened as all other quests continued to work fine. I can only assume it is the "quest items" from mods that are irremovable from my inventory. Thank god for console commands!

Anyone know a nice grass replacer? I hate the fields outside Whiterun. I can't get any of them to work in that field.

Also, does anyone notice how certain ENBs have a certain crispness to them? Anyone know how to modify an ENB config to produce those results?

Have you tried Natural Grass? (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/30164/?)

or http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/33582//? - supposedly gives you a frameboost too.

Anyone playing with a AMD x6 + 650ti Boost card? I'm curious how well that combo will do, 2gb vram SEEMS like enough to add quite a few mods to this game.. but sometimes I wonder.

I have that combo in mind for a cheap upgrade, rather than spending 2-3x as much on a whole new rig (unfeasible for now).

Just starting to get into the modded Skyrim scene, which is awesome now that all of the content has been released and the mods are mature.

Vanilla Skyrim runs like a dream but the game looks pretty bad. I used to play it on the 360 so I have no idea how I put up with that. biggrin.gif

Naturally I've been trying to run some texture mods to make the game look better. The results are impressive, but it's certainly taking it's toll on performance. There is noticeable stutter when the game is loading new areas. The thing is I'm not even close to the VRAM limit on my card. For whatever reason the game just seems sluggish to load the new textures. Doesn't seem to matter if the game is being run on my SSD or not. Is that normal? It doesn't feel like it. I never dip below 60fps with my setup but the stutters are evident. Right now I'm trying to find the right balance between running the game smoothly and having enough new textures to make the game looking decent and having a difficult time.

I don't get it when it is loading new areas, but I sometimes see it when I do a sudden turn. try lowering the render distance on some things, starting with grass and maybe particles. lowering shadows may help too. are you playing on your sig rig with a 690? have you changed your uGrid settings? I would think a 690 should run the game with whatever 4k textures you can throw at it, but maybe I am wrong. try it without OC'ing?
on a side note, since you're just getting into modding it, have you tried SkyRe? best mod (gameplay-wise) I have added.

Did you actually check your VRAM usage? If so, and you're not near the 2GB limit, I'd guess the issue is with SLI. Or you could try entering the console command pcb when you begin to stutter and see if that helps.

Frankly, the vanilla Skyrim engine just has problems. There are some mods/tools to help it though. I know Fallout 3 had several that helped, so Skyrim definitely has some.

I have tracked a few and will list them, but have not tried any of them yet, so look them up carefully before using.

GPU/FPS fixes
HIALGOBOOST GPU UPGRADE
Skyrim performance and crash prevention Tutorial Information
FPS Background Booster

Texture Combiner/Optimizers
Skyrim Mods Complex Optimizer - SMCO
Texture Pack Combiner

STEP - Skyrim Total Enhancement Project <- this may have a section for optimizing the game, not sure as I haven't used it yet.

Unofficial Skyrim Patch <- May be helpful
