Flower Fields

by mobiusbelmont




inspired by the amazing screenshots of dracofish (aka MelissaGT)


Description:
This mod adds flower fields to various areas of Skyrim and uses Hodminnir flower resource.  The flowers have their own custom landscape texture created in CK and works beautifully along side other grass mods and landscape overhauls. 


v 1.0: Areas overhauled include:
Whiterun outskirts (tulips and poppys)
Rorikstead outskirts (daffodils, poppys, and tulips)
Falkreath forest and wilderness (lily of the valley, daisy, crocus and more)
Witchmist Grove in Eastmarch (lily of the valley and bluebells)
a few areas in The Rift, Haafingar, and The Reach
Winterhold outskirts (snow and winter flowers)
Riverwood outskirts (bluebells)


v1.5 Additional areas
The Reach
Hjaalmarch swamp
roadsides
Whiterun Hold farms have Merry's Sunflowers!

v2.0
More areas overhauled in all non-snowy areas
added Grass on Steroids edition with grass density settings at 255 (CK)


Thanks to hodilton for the preview (version 1.0)



More areas and flower types to come in future updates.  If you have a suggestion on an area you would like to see overhauled OR a specific type of flower added, just leave a comment in the discussion section




Compatibility and Grass ini settings:


Each flower field has it's own custom landscape texture and will not conflict with other texture overhauls for landscapes.  All grass mods and landscape overhauls should be compatible, run LOOT after installation to sort your load order

**note to users of Unbelievable Grass Two:  load flower fields mod AFTER the grass clipping fix

Flower Fields is 100% compatible with Veydosebrom


GRASS ON STEROIDS USERS:  there is now an edition of Flower Fields that contains the "grass on steroids tweak" which will maximize grass density with no FPS loss (and maybe even a gain in FPS).  
You must set iMin GrassSize to 75 (or higher) if you are using this!!!!  Download main file first then overwrite with this plugin.


KNOWN ISSUES:

Elysium Estate:  creates a huge landscape seam across the entrance (I tried fixing it but I can not)

make sure to have these settings in your skyrim ini file
Skyrim.ini:
[Grass]
iGrassCellRadius=2
bAllowCreateGrass=1
bAllowLoadGrass=0
bGrassPointLighting=1
b30GrassVS=0
iMaxGrassTypesPerTexure=10  (** this can be set higher for other grass mods like verdant orVeydosebrom without issue)
iMinGrassSize=50  (lower values produce more dense flowers but reduce performance and FPS.  I suggest you try different values until you are satisfied)

***if you are using the Grass on Steroids edition then set iMinGrassSize to 75 or higher







Installation:
    Use mod manager or install manually. 
Choose only ONE file to install. 
BSA versions available for those that install mods manually. 

Regular version:  high resolution textures


Performance version:   all textures have been re-sized to 512K or lower


Make sure Flower Fields is loaded AFTER all other landscape and grass overhauls (if you can't see the flowers this is usually why)

Again, ONLY INSTALL ONE MAIN FILE!

For Grass on Steroids edition, install one of the main files first and then overwrite
