Billboards for Vanilla Skyrim Trees

Skyrim SE Version Here . If you prefer this version then it still works fine in SSE


Vanilla Skyrim and Dragonborn billboards for use with DynDOLOD by Sheson. 
Made using Zilavs awesome Tree LOD billboard creator for xLODGen. 
They are double the resolution of the vanilla billboards that one can currently find on the nexus afaik. 


file: Vanilla Skyrim and Dragonborn billboards Medium Res (512 pixel height captures)
Main file: Vanilla Skyrim and Dragonborn billboards Hi Res (1024 pixel height captures)

Boils down to personal preference as to which is better (medium or high). Medium Res tree LODs are slightly more fleshed out and you may prefer that look.

Optional file: Only Vanilla Skyrim billboards with an added blur effect.

No performance impact on my system with either version. Only noticed a few fps loss when totally disabling tree LOD.

Premade Vanilla Treelod:
Optional fileReady Made Vanilla and Dragonborn TreeLODs, made using TES5LODGEN, for those that don't use Dyndolod or TES5LODGEN. This can be installed normally and it just replaces vanilla tree LODs with the ones I created. However you are missing out on the awesomeness of DynDOLOD :P

Miscellaneous: Creating your own billboard tutorial

Video by GamerPoets showcasing all the details on how to make your own billboards. This video is packed with information so multiple viewings are recommended in combination with going through the process (and making mistakes - thats how we learn) :P


On their own billboards will have no effect in game. To get them to appear either use Shesons DynDOLOD or Zilavs TES5LODGEN which is now integrated in the latest versions of TES5edit.

For the prerequisites needed to utilize billboards with DynDOLOD watch Gamerpoets tutorial or the last half of Dirty weasel medias tutorial (which is slightly newer).

Furthermore an excellent pictorial tutorial for DynDOLOD setup can be found on S.T.E.P.

Use With Dyndolod
