This mod reduces the density of insignificant objects to 0, effectively removing their existence safely from your game.

Those little pebbles, underwater plants, dead shrubs, and thickets in the screenshots aren't physical objects in the game world. It's actually GRASS that's generated on the fly using PARAMETERS initialized when you launch the game. I'm essentially removing 1/4 of all the grass you don't see to try and net older systems a few additional FPS. 

In the eyes of the engine it's all just procedural grass to be processed and rendered, but to our human eyes it's grass mixed with a ton of insignificant objects. Objects that will no longer exist once you activate this esp. You won't notice they're gone, but your hardware will.

Wait, I know you...

Install:

Load Order:
Place it after mods that edit landscapes.

Q: What exactly did you remove?
A: Procedural "grass" that isn't actually grass. These objects are spawned in varying densities in a radius around the player when you load an area. Things like small stones and the crap underwater - the stuff you probably never noticed and can't interact with

As a bonus, I included options to remove all instances of thickets and dead shrubs in the game. While these aren't procedural objects, I find them to be quite hard to look at.


Q: Why did you do this?
A: Because your processing/rendering power is better used generating things you can actually see. For example, locations like around Riverwood and Lake Ilinalta spawn thousands of plants underwater, and unless you are swimming, you will never notice them, even though they're always being rendered.


Q: How much performance do I gain?
A: Depends on the scene, draw distance, hardware, install options, etc. If your computer is less than 3 or 4 years old, there's a good chance you won't need this mod.


Q: Is this even safe?
A: 
Absolutely, this mod contains no dirty edits. If another mod needs these objects for any reason, they are still available in all their ugly glory. You will never CTD from this.
