[left]Flower Fields SE is included with Spring Forest Overhaul SE mod but you can use these separately. If you plan to use a grass mod in your load ordefr after Spring Forest Overhaul SE, then load the Flower Fields SE mod after your grass mod giving you the Spring Forest Overhaul trees and plants, your preferred grass mod and Flower Fields in your game.

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 & 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)

SKYRIM.INI SETTINGS

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



RECOMMENDED MODS

Spring Forest Overhaul SE

Animallica SE

Ultimate HD Fire Effects SSE


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
