      I tried that and it doesn't work, if you have too many occlusion planes you actually get a lower FPS then before.
      For example if an item is behind 1 occlusion plane it all works out and you get an FPS boost, but if that item is for some reason behind 2 or more occlusion planes then you actually decrease your FPS even more for some reason.

    As an add on, you should try optimizing some of the more popular mods that add big locations, like the Halls of Dovahndor and the such. Those mods would REALLY benefit from this work!

    Nice work.

    RLO 4.0.7 will include all the optimization suggestions by rgabriel15 and of course will run best with SPO installed.
