=====Description=====
This mod encompasses my methods on achieving optimal performance. It also provides links to
reliable sources that boost performance as well as providing tweaks to enhance performance.

=====What it does=====
Currently, there are two skyrimprefs.ini tweaks that either disable shadows are alter
them in a way that boosts performance. Completely removing shadows provides the greatest
performance boost. Also, the latest Skyboost mod also works great in conjunction with these tweaks.

=====Installation=====
You can either place the modified skyrimprefs.ini in your My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\
folder or you can modify the flowing values in your current skyrimprefs.ini
Note: My personal .ini file may not work with every copy of Skyrim so I recommend changing the
values in your personal skyrimprefs.ini to the following:

=====Values for no Shadows======
iShadowMapResolutionSecondary=0
iShadowMapResolutionPrimary=0
iShadowMapResolution=0

=====Values for fast Shadows=====
iShadowMapResolutionSecondary=512
iShadowMapResolutionPrimary=512
iBlurDeferredShadowMask=6
iShadowMapResolution=512

=====My Experience with these settings and mods=====
I went from around 30 FPS on max settings in Whiterun to a solid 60 FPS!
