Permissions and credits
This is the "dead" version of my ground cover overhaul for New Vegas. If you prefer a greener more alive looking mod you will prefer A Wasteland in Bloom instead. Many of the ground covers are from that mod but heavily desaturated or edited but there are also new plants and dead flowers.

Your fallout ini (grass section) should look like this for best effect (used in most of my images):



Q: What does this mod do?
A: It places 12 new meshes onto the various LandTextures. They will only spawn where grasses spawns originally. The mod also retextures the default grasses (this dds file can not be used stand-alone though due to how i've edited it, it needs the meshes/esp). 

Q: Do i have to edit the .ini?
A: It has to be edited or you will only see very few of the new meshes. Download the .ini under Optional Files and install it via vortex!

Q: Performance is bad!
A: Edit iMinGrassSize=40 to 80 instead, it will spawn much more sparse grass but will be more performance friendly. You can also try the medium resolution texture pack or even the Low res (lower than default game textures).

Q: I use the .ini and it doesn't seem to work because i don't see that many new plants!
A: Make sure no other mod or program overrides the new setting you made with its own ini settings. Programs like Mod Organizer have their own folder with .ini's, they can have higher priority than other ini's, for example the default one.. it can be quite the mess, so be sure to configure the ini with whatever program or mod organizer you are currently using for the .ini's!
