About this mod

This is just a batch file that changes the numeric values that the godrays use. Basically it just means you can use the ultra quality god rays without the huge performance hit. Performance should be roughly the same as using the low quality god rays.

Permissions and credits
What Is This?
First things first... This isn't really a "mod." It's a collection of console commands put into a batch file.
All these console commands already exist in the vanilla game, this just makes it easier for the user to input them.
Think of it as a dynamic .ini tweak that occurs in-game...
It changes the GR Grid value from 64 to 12.
It changes the GR Scale from 1.0 to .8.
It changes the GR MaxCascade from 2 to 1.
These tweaks grant the user ultra quality godrays that perform the same as low quality godrays!



Why Use This?
Get ultra quality godrays without sacrificing 20 FPS!
Remove that horrible pixel effect on your character and weapon!
Brag to your friends that your system can handle Fallout 4's godrays!



Whats the Catch?
A shimmering effect may occur when the light shafts squeeze through tight spaces. This only ever happens when lots of light is pouring in through the tiniest of spaces...
Like all performance mods, each system will be effected differently.
There is no guarantee this will work for you.



Installation and Activation

Since this isn't a typical "mod" it can't simply be downloaded with Nexus Mod Manager. It requires manual installation and an optional .ini setting. Don't let that scare you, it's really not difficult.

Unzip and place the Godrays.txt file into your main Fallout 4 directory.

This is the folder with the Fallout4.exe
For most people this will be under: Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Fallout 4

Only download one version! Do not try to use both 1.0a and 1.0b.

Once installed, there are TWO ways of activating the fix.

1. Type bat godrays in the console when you first load your save.
---> You have to do this each time you launch the game.

OR...

 
2. Type sStartingConsoleCommand=bat godrays under the general section of your Fallout4.ini.
---> This auto enters the command when you start the game. 



      For those that like to watch tutorials, this video will show you how to install. :)



Other Notes + Thank You
I wanted to give special thanks everyone that uploaded screenshots and left all the nice messages. I also wanted to give a special shoutout to Creepios for making the first mod showcase video.

This is compatible with 99% of mods. Mods that change the way god rays work may have some issues but its highly unlikely. It works well with Vivid Weathers and I highly recommend it.
