Better Forests and Environments
Version: 03D
Author: 3AMt and Daemon White


The goal of this modification is to create a landscape which is more believable than the vanilla one. All pine forest cells on the south-western section of the map have been edited.

Reported to many uses, this mod decreases the performance a lot. There are up to 5 times more objects in the edited cells than in the original game. A high end PC and graphic card is highly recommended

If you find any floating trees, please send a PM to Daemonui with a screenshot of where it is on the map

Installation Instructions
Place the Better Forests and Environments.esp in your Skyrim Data folder (Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\Data)
Activate the file with the launcher. Enjoy!

If you are using Vurt's Skyrim Flora Overhaul (Recommended Mod), it is recommended to load Better Forests and Environments after Flora Overhaul for safety reasons.

Update Instructions
Delete the old .esp and place the new one in your data folder, activate via launcher.

Version History

Version 03E: LOD Regenerated and working. Fixed floating trees that were reported. Thinned out Anises Cbain area by about 1/3 for better performance.

Version 03D2: Cleaned with TES5Edit

Version 03D: Removed Whiterun Trees. Added more trees to the Northern Path to WIndhelm. Still no luck on Tree LODs: Research proved it to be a CK Generation Error, not the Game Engine.

Version 03C V2: Removed the new generated Tree LOD Files to fix the giant floating wall of tree LODs.
