DESCRIPTION


This is a modular overhaul with 3 parts
Summer Skyrim: Complete graphical overhaul of Skyrim
  • Terrain, trees, grass, meshes, LODs, birds, buildings, roads and more modified to convert Skyrim into a lush summer paradise
  • Summer Skies: Complete transformation of Skyrim's atmosphere
  • Realistic sky colours, clear climate, longer days, epic sunrises and sunsets and warm, vibrant sun and sunlight
  • Summer ENB: High powered ENB preset designed entirely for Summer Skyrim with Summer Skies
  • Uses all features of ENB except camera replication effects. Balanced and designed for immersion. AA disabled by default, enable in enblocal.ini. Using Optional "Realistic Bokeh DoF" enabled version looks amazing but will decrease performance!

Fully compatible with any weather mod - just use instead of Summer Skies!

Important INI Tweaks
  • Open Skyrim.ini
  • Edit or add the following under the [Grass] heading:
  • bAllowLoadGrass=0
    bAllowCreateGrass=1
    bDrawShaderGrass=1
  • To get the full effect of SS3 make sure there is also:
  • iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure=6
    That is not a spelling mistake ^
  • For better performance also add:
  • iMinGrassSize=100
  • Finally, to have grass draw as far as mine does in the pictures add:
  • iGrassCellRadius=3

Example:
[Grass]
bAllowLoadGrass=0
bAllowCreateGrass=1
bDrawShaderGrass=1
iMinGrassSize=60
iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure=6
iGrassCellRadius=3


I also strongly recommend City Forests or some other city and town flora mod
From 3.0 onwards, Lush grass mods are no longer necessary (or compatible) as this mod contains it's own lush meshes.

UPDATE HISTORY


Update 3.71 : Added few new plants and flowers, reformed reed grass, more regional changes, bug fixes, improvements. ENB lighting fixed from unexplainable ENB bug. Crucial updates
