About this mod

Grass FPS Booster is the only SSE grass density mod that gives you an FPS boost, instead of slowing you down! Supports Vanilla, Enhanced Landscapes, SFO, Tamriel Reloaded, Verdant, Veydosebrom, Viscous, and Voluptuous grass. There is also support for "Landscapes - Cathedral Concept" through a patch.

Inspired by Grass On Steroids, Grass FPS Booster is doing the same thing for SSE: enhances your framerate outdoors while making your grass denser!


=======================================================================
What Grass FPS Booster does:
=======================================================================
Finally, a grass density enhancer mod that can boost your FPS instead of slowing you down - it makes grass denser and more realistic by unevenly distributing it - all without worrying about FPS lag!
It can BOOST your FPS outdoors without sacrificing grass amount or density! (read on settings below on how you can do this!)
=======================================================================
What it does NOT do:
=======================================================================
- It does not change or overwrite any meshes or textures (although I've uploaded optional textures if you want to use them).
- It is perfectly compatible with your preferred grass mod. It comes with patches for the most popular grass mods.
- It does not contain any cell or worldspace edits so it will not cause CTDs.
- It does not contain any scripts, so you can try it and remove it risk-free - it will not affect your saved games.
=======================================================================
SETTINGS (IMPORTANT):
=======================================================================
You control how dense your grass will be, until you find a sweet spot where you have enough density AND an FPS boost.
From v2.6 onward, Grass FPS Booster includes its own .ini file where you can adjust your settings.
In the Grass FPS Booster.ini file, find the line iMinGrassSize=...
From there you control both grass density and FPS boost.
The lower the number the more dense the grass, the higher the number the more FPS boost.
=======================================================================
BOOST your FRAMERATE:
=======================================================================
Can you believe that a grass mod can actually increase your framerate outdoors?
Set your iMinGrassSize above 100 (around 120-128) to get enhanced framerate outdoors, and still you'll get better grass density than vanilla at 40 setting! 

***Framerate boost will be more noticeable on weaker systems
=======================================================================
Maximize your grass density:
=======================================================================
I would recommend boosting the density settings (to 20 or 40) only to high-end PCs. At these super-dense settings, Grass FPS Booster will give you the densest possible grass you can get within Skyrim's game engine limits as compared to any other grass mods. 
I wouldn't recommend setting it below 40 as it gets too dense that a lot of the smaller grass textures end up getting covered and you won't get the natural uneven distribution that this mod was intended to give.
=======================================================================
Compatibility and Load Order
=======================================================================
Grass FPS Booster is compatible with all mods except those that affect grass density and distribution. 
For your load order, Grass FPS Booster has to be loaded after your grass mod.
