Hey there! I'm the author of LOTD Plus, and I joined just to respond to this thread! Whether or not LOTD Plus is a good fit definitely depends on your hardware limitations. It's definitely better than Lexy's for screenshots, and many users (myself included) experience little to no noticeable FPS loss using it over Lexy's, but your mileage may vary. Right now, the previous statement is correct, other than graphics changes there's very few differences between Plus and Lexy's, but that will be changing pretty soon. My focus is more on graphics and immersion than Lexy's, so now that the core graphics mods are mostly in place, I'll be shifting focus towards immersion; that's where the real changes begin! As for scripted versions... Sometime early this year, I have plans to officially start supporting Wabbajack to some extent. I'll always recommend manual installation because I believe it's important to understand WHY things work when modding, not just click and hope it does... but I also acknowledge that systems like Wabbajack are the future and I'm willing to support that now that I've had a chance to actually audit their systems. Hopefully that answers a few of your questions, and feel free to hit me up (or join our Discord server... we don't bite!) if you have anything else.


Oh... and totally get it... I'm 40+ myself.

MonarchX You can never finish modding Skyrim. Modding Skyrim is like a job, it doesn't stop. It very much prevented me from ever properly playing the game...

skupples yep, would be nice if someone would put together a proper kit. I know there are a few but, they weren't all that great last time I checked.

My internet connection is kind of terrible, so nexus isn't much worse than normal. They're capped at 1mb/s for non-subscribers, and I can only hit 1.5-2mb/s anyway while streaming. FWIW the differences between Lexy's and LOTD Plus are fairly minor. If you are standing in 1 place looking at something you can see more detail, but during gameplay you won't notice anything other than a lower frame rate. The only time I would recommend LOTD Plus is if you take a lot of screenshots or videos, like if you are a modder who needs to show off something you built.

After that, I used to recommend Nordic, but it's currently obsolete. There are plans to revamp it, but it hasn't happened yet.
Once you are familiar with the tools and scene, you can try Lexy's or LoTD Plus. LoTD Plus is basically Lexy's, but geared toward high end PCs.

I've used each of these guides in the past.

Kaltenbrunner Ok and I have 16GB ram. In MO2 I edited the ini to set radialblur and fDynamicDOFFarBlur to 0 . It's still doing it, but maybe not as bad. But Just standing still things get blurred, like it's changing focus, so what's that, DOF ? And moving the mouse or walking/running causes motion blur for sure. And I HATE ANYTHING that makes a pretty game look blurry. I want to run around and have it all look crisp and clear and like the eye candy it should be.

What about fDDOFFocusCenterweightExt=2, I could try 0

Is this all new stuff in Sp.Ed ? IDK if free-sync is affecting the look/feel too. Yesterday before ENB and tree LOD changes, I was getting 120fps no problem, at least in Morthal itself.

I found enbseries.ini and seem to have disabled all DOF that way, thank god.

I don't like this ENB so far, seems to add a murky grey filter. I'd say I need to change the weather mod to try other ENB mods tho.

Something's making everything look blurry too, I'm guessing it's the ENB or a weather mod. I can look at something far away or close by, and it's blurry, then a moment later it becomes crisp/clear. It's very annoying. Even stuff right in front of me can do it. IDK how much it's motion realated.

Now I'm not sure how to disable ENB, to check.
That system should be fine for dyndolod high. You can make sure blur/dof is disabled in the game settings, it's kind of ugly compared to a good enb implementation and looks really bad if you have both the built in blur/dof and a blur/dof shader from an enb working at the same time.

As far as specs, I was able to run LOTD Plus (most demanding guide I've seen yet for PC requirements) with my sig rig at a comfortable 60 fps steady. The LOTD Plus guide maxes all graphics settings and adds several hundred mods - most with 4k or better resolution. Gaming, our rigs are pretty evenly matched, so I'd say you have plenty of horsepower for anything you want to throw at it. 4k @ 60Hz+ may be an issue, but 1440 won't have a problem with it.
