    note that the newest version of this mod works with 1.5.97 because this mod is not skse based and does not rely on other mods, at most the
    newest version of this mod would simply have extra textures that will
    not get loaded if you use 1.5.97 otherwise the texture files are the
    same as the old files


    i have already stated that this works with both versions of the game, read the description and replies to other comments further posts regarding this issue will be ignored or deleted.

    so just for good measure this works with 1.5.97 and newer including the ae version of this game

    news

    version 10 of this mod has been uploaded with the following changes

    1 it uses the newer file structure

    2 it uses the newer textures assuming that any changes were made to them, it looks like there were some minor changes but i cannot tell

    3 as far as i know the textures from the creation club content have not been touched i do not think that they are inside the main texture bsa's

    4 lastly the low end medium end and high end versions of this mod are being replaced by the anniversary edition of this mod

    5 why? because it is smaller than every version of this mod except for the low end version, the older versions of this mod worked just fine with the anniversary edition of this game as well as the regular version. but i was able to make the new version within 2 hours and when i saw that it was superior to the older versions of this mod i decided to discontinue the older versions of this mod in favor of the new version of this mod.

    6 there are no bugs or problems that i am aware of at the moment, i recommend using the unofficial skyrim special edition downgrade patcher best of both worlds version, i did not test the full patcher version since it would involve losing the use of skse plugins or losing the use of engine fixes.

    with all of that being said enjoy the newest update and i would suggest avoiding 1.6 until the issues surrounding it and modding are resolved

    How this compare to Simply Optimized Textures ?

    Edit: UPOT didn't perform any better than SOT, that's surprising since UPOT has been updated more recently

    Holy s***, bro. Thanks a hell lot for this. I can't believe this reduces more than 2 GB VRAM usage. My gpu hit vram limit before, it freezes instantly. Now I can play it swimmingly again.

    Hello. Can we use this mod with Kart CSSET Overwrite?

      you can but it is not recommended since both mods aim to optimize the textures of the game, so i would strongly advise anyone looking to do this to pick one or the other mod for your usage.

    Most people will never update from 1.5.97 because every update breaks mods. So it would be wise to reupload the 1.5.97 files

    Just here to +1 the request for the 1.5.97 compatible version of this fantastic mod. Lots of us aren't updating because there's still some valuable mods to lose if we do so. :)

    any chance you could unhide the ones for 1.5.97? maybe list them as old files instead. There was nothing wrong with them in my experience, and I believe the 1.6.x bsa files are a bit different, yes? many people still use 1.5.97 . or would the upcoming version be compatible with pre ae as well?

      any chance you could make the latest pre ae versions downloadable again until then? maybe put them in "old files" , I've used them for a long time and haven't noticed any issues. :(

      it seems a lot of people like the old files better than the new ones so i will consider putting them back up.

      however if you are just wanting a medium or a low end version like i had before the update then i can do that as soon as i get some more free time probably during the weekend. the only reason i did not do that with this version of the mod was that i was unsure if such a thing was even still needed.

    I would also love to see 1.5.97 compatible version. This was my favorite replacer for core texture files.
