    Doesn't work unfortunatly, I tried all light source in my workshop and none of them casted shadows.
    Obviously I have sim settlement

    (Endorsed) Thank you for creating such great mod, I really enjoyed the detailed shadows. However, later I found this mod had a great impact on the performance. Whenever I enter a place with many interior plots my fps drops a lot, so I have to remove it :(

    My current PC: GTX1060-6GB, intel I7-8700 (mid-end pc which is not enough to use this mod)

    *For others try to use this mod: please be sure if you have a high-end computer like the author

    The plugins in your screenshots:

    1st one is a vanilla SS store.

    2nd one is my Steel Scrap Yard from Industrial City

    3rd is the house from Trailerpark Dreams

    4th there are 2 vanilla SS houses (one a VIP) and not sure if the 3rd is vanilla SS or not.

    5th is the Barracks from JTBryant's Utilties plugin.

    Also, does this just add shadow effects to kinggath's lights that he seperated out in SS (so those of us that use his lights get the effect) or are you doing something else to detect lights on plots and deal with it?

      Thank you!
      I just made a simple override to several lights in the simsettlements.esm.

      4th is PCDugAddons, Wasteland Venturers, and SS VIP - in that order. Just for anyone that comes by wondering.

    Some Sim Settlement Spaces work great, but some lights seems glitchy and throw shadows oddly I have noticed. Can't wait to see what you can do to fix these. I have barely any performance drops on my 1080Ti and I love sim settlements but it looks odd next to the "true shadow" mod I am using.

    THanks a lot, this is so badly needed. I've proceeded to add shadows to some Sim addon packs as well.

    What HUD plugin is being used in your screenshots? (Well-rested, fed, etc) I want! :-)

    Looks like this will be the 1st Sim Settlement mod that I won't be trying, at least anytime soon. Shadow mods hit my game hard, despite having a great rig.

    I have heard many people say that shadow draw in Fallout 4 is badly optimized/utilized. I don't know if that is the case, but there are places in the vanilla game where I get well under 60 fps @ high settings and both my CPU/GPU loads are under %30 utilization. Boston rooftops are a prime example of where this happens, in my case. It's frustrating having a brand new $1,500 PC that gets under 30 fps in some places in a AAA title from almost 3 years ago. Beth... Come on...

      I'm using a single GTX1080 and I can't feel any performance hit...as I don't really care if FPS drops below 60, 30 is still OK for me in this game.

    If only this could be done without adding yet another esp. I have 255 already and all are needed or rely on each other. It sucks that all the SIM settlement addons and mods have to add their own esp file. It is a mess.

      Are you using XEdit?
      Its a great tool which allows to create merged patches etc.
      Dont know how many plugins i have - but without XEdit that wouldnt be possible
