Trees LODs with shadows v1.3

By Xtudo
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Description
===========

One of the best and first tweaks launched by the wonderful Skyrim community was adding shadows to the trees.

By changing bTreesReceiveShadows=1 into the SkyrimPref.ini file.

But this introduced little but upseting glich, the trees LODs don't have shadows applied to them.


So, I added the shadows to the trees LODs, is what this mod do.

For me, is better now; of course it depend on each taste. If you want some "tweak" just let me know.


Here is an useful tweak for shadows, set: fShadowDistance=14000.0000

Beware, this can give you some FPS hit, but it also gives shadows to all the full loaded trees.

-> When the more fShadowDistance is set, the less closer shadow detail you'll get, so set it to your tastes.



I did it for me, and now I'm sharing it, I hope you like it!
