REQUIREMENTS


WHY THIS MOD?
To play around the limit of rendered dynamic lights and only enable shadows when there are less than 4 lights within a certain distance from the player. 


KNOWN ISSUES
  • There is a slight delay and a light effect before the torch is equipped.
  • Light cast on characters skin might sometimes look strange or "polygonal" due to default shadow bias values. Not possible to change on dynamically generated references.
  • Skyrim VR: Magelight spell will be cast in the direction you are looking and not from your hand.
