    Updated 4/5/19
    - A new version with 3-D trees is now available. BSA only. SSE users should extract said bsa and convert meshes to SSE with nifoptimizer.
    - Core files and billboards are available for the 3-D version for those using TES5LODGen or DynDOLOD

    - as always install only one main file
    - this mod only replaces vanilla trees and does not add new trees.
    - future update will make corrections to any poorly placed trees, remove or adjust floating moss, and add beehives and clutter to some trees

    Do you think you can make a plugin that only dead trees are only in morthal the blackreach? Perhaps, if I am not asking too much, add enhanced landscapes mushrooms to it as well?

    Is this mod (and by extension, the full version of Dark Forest Overhaul) compatible with your Blue Forest mod? It would be cool to have all dead trees except for a blue forest

      I use them together, disable the DeadSkyrim.esp and it works fine.

    Moli would you tell how you converted 3D trees. Or maybe in some of your mods added snow-covered 3d pine?

      Nif optimizer is the tool i use to interconvert meshes between LE and SE
      All the pines were made by Mathy79. I just changed the leaf and bark colors with photoshop. I used nifskope to remove some tree branches in other mods to make dead ones.

    Will this potentially increase performance? Asking this because not only does it look good, but it looked like that it may possibly increase stability.

      Well if you use the 2D tree version without high res textures, yea it will. Leafless trees are easier on your system

      That's great! My game is already stable, but more stability is always a good thing. Can I download this mid-playthrough though? I'm already a hundred hours in, and I would really hate to start all over again. Oh and thank you for responding.

      In general landscape mods do not have scripts or seq files. They are very safe to add or uninstall mid game. If you are using mods that modify trees, then you need to regenerate tree lod with dyndolod or tes5lodgen.

      I have them about ready for the old version. I'm working on making them for the new trees as well but that will take some time

      I have 3D LODs made for one version, should have them for the other one by next week. I'm also making another variant of this mod with Mathy's 3D trees, some I've modified in nifskope

    Does this support DynDOLOD 3D lods?

      I am working on making 3D LOD meshes for DynDOLOD. They will be ready in a week or so.

      This mod changes all vanilla trees, so yes it will effect Solstheim. This mod includes tree LOD for Solstheim/Dragonborn. If you are using flora or tree mods for Solstheim you will need to generate LOD with TES5LODGen or DynDOLOD (and the corresponding billboards for each mod you use)
