I released a second mod called CRP which sets most of the junk worldspace items to initially disabled. I'm too tired to work on mods right now so things are pretty much how they are at the moment. sorry if i let down anyone's expectations but i just don't feel like modding at this time, Thank you!

Clutter Removal Project

OBJECTIVE



Fallout 4 Texture Optimization Project is tasked with improving the framerate (or "FPS") without sacrificing too much visual fidelity (save for close-ups). To accomplish this, I have replaced the high-resolution textures with properly compressed and resized textures. All of this is done manually one texture at a time to ensure that any buggy files are fixed and the end goal will be a MUCH BETTER playing game ESPECIALLY for people with a low budget for computer hardware and with only a MINOR loss in texture quality.

Extra Info


Vanilla textures are HUGE 2048x2048 (2k) ground textures and 2048x2048 plant textures 4096x2048 tree textures and so on (for example) most computers cannot handle this.

Therefore what I have done and am doing is trying to fix that problem and retain the vanilla art style as best I can, while reducing the texture size, and using proper compression on textures. This leads to a VERY impressive micro-stutter fix or removal! The mod is also a VERY good fps boost for low to mid grade computers with anywhere up to OverClocked i7-3770ks and OverClocked gtx770s seeing massive improvement! also it is the BEST fps boost you can get for the quality retained, without making the game look like complete garbage, which is PERFECT for low-mid grade computers to boost framerates and help remove microstutter. Therefore it can even improve Framerate Stability even on some higher end graphics cards!

--Note: To truly test how much of an fps improvement you are getting from this mod, don't stand still without moving and call that your fps. test your framerate stability while fighting,walking through cities/open fields.

--Note: as of update 0.12 please only report textures that are abnormally out of place to the point it is immersion breaking! This is because as of update 0.12 the majority of bug fixes are fixed. Thank you!

--*update*-- We made it to the top 10 nexus files of all time! Thank you so much for the support everyone! :D

--*update2*-- We made it to one million views! \^-^/


PLEASE TAKE A THOROUGH LOOK AT THE STICKIED COMMENTS AS WELL AS THE BUGS SECTION BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS/PROBLEMS. THANK YOU.
