    what to do:
    floes rubble need mesh rework, they suck with bad borders, color tweaks too, actually no - I am going to create geometry chunks rubble
    adding more ice blue chunks like in the optionals additional blu mesh - its doable
    smoothing edges and insert real crevices and not just simulated via normalmaps
    then: different & more realistic rather than fancy glacier approach, it was cool tweak but time to move on

      Deleting the Glaciertrim01.nif mesh in \meshes\landscape\ice fixed this for me. Texture is used around DoomstoneSnowy01 and a few other spots.

      Agreed.
      I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out how what version/update/options scheme is being used.

    This is probably the best paralax effect I've seen here on Nexus. Generally the paralax can look a bit too noticable in other textures, but on ice it works very well.

      glad u noticed it, in 2017 I was obsessed with parallax - not many ppl appreciate this effect and new skyrim doesn't help with that (SSE has no parallax), I made sure after many hours\days to make the parallax effect influence the 2d image so it looks like a 3d mesh and without stretching which I honestly don't see happen often
      best regards

      https://www.reddit.com/r/skyrimmods/comments/eq2o4a/skyrim_se_parallax/ SSE does have parallax, but it does not have landscape parallax. So things like trees, rocks, ice ;D, buildings can have parallax. And Aers, lovely that he is, also made it easier. https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/31963

    Hi, mod v.4.2.2.3 is great (only vanilla snow on ice blocks and others looks strange - example: https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/mods/110/images/82157/82157-1580977078-2074713978.pnghttps://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/mods/110/images/82157/82157-1580976739-1245173192.png).
    But there are no perfect lods. I tried mod with vanilla lods, HD Lods Textures V2, HD Lods Textures V9.3. More detailed: v.9.3 better v.2 and it's better than vanilla lod. But still the lod is darker, than mod textures... and because it not perfect. This can be used, but there is no perfect lod...
    I attached images of the demonstration with different versions of lods.

    just stumbled onto this , looks great! , wondering tho , if i,m not mistaken Parallax doesnt work in Se , can i simply remove the few _p dds textures files & the Mod will work in Se , perhaps any 1 knows

    * edit * i,ve tried , no joy , Se needs support for Parallax , time for an update to the Dx11 Shader Repertoire lol and then ofc an Enb Update , mhnn we,re never going 2 see that in Se lol, anyway nvm :P

    endorsing your Mod anyway , these look great!

      hi thanks, I just don't know SE unfortunately, u need to disable parallax in meshes, on the rubble ones that should do it
      unfortunately (or fortunately depends on how u look at it) the mods relies heavily on SSS and spec fancy effect so without that I am not sure what to expect, maybe some dull and dry ice

      Thnkx Chief , I just would enjoy the full Magic of your Mod , yes I noticed the remove Parallax on the updated Optimizer , did,t worked for me strangely, i have Noble Skyrim,s Ice Textures aswell , i have to try without those , might be user error on my Part .

      grrr , :P , I have 2 try soon again, prolly with a new and fresh install lol

      for now i,l simply stare @ the Pictures in Awe haha , your Mod reminds me a bit of the Icicles and Frost Atronach Mod , the transparant Ice thingie effect ( https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/2458?tab=files )


      mhnn I have an older Enb Binary atm , I,l give it a try with a newer Binary , perhaps with updated sss specs it might work

      Thanks ! , amazing Mod

    I've tried repeatedly to get these meshes and textures to work in Special Edition.
    I used nif-optimizer to convert the files and get rid of the parallax - CTD.
    I deleted any and all _p.dds files manually - CTD again.
    Can anyone help me figure out what I have to do to make them work for SE? I am all out of ideas.
    The lack of ice that does not look like it fell out of an airplane lavatory is really the only thing I don't like about SSE right now^^
