SFO Summer Edition. Lusher! Greener!


Changes from latest, non summer SFO
:

Greener and lusher version of SFO with e.g green aspens, green tundra.
Many new snowy trees
Changes to the green pines (better leaf animations, tweaks and changes to the meshes)
Many new grasses/plants, some in full 3D.
Cleaned up grasses from e.g unused strings
Trees now share same nif flags as the original Betheseda trees
8 different grasses per ground texture (previously 6)
Lots of other changes.


ToDo: more normals maps and better normal maps. More unique grasses and plants for all areas. New green pines with new animations, better LOD's (will look into 3D ones..), making the swamp area more green and lush, perhaps new trees there (my Morrowind bitter coast trees perhaps). Suggestions are welcome in the comments section. 


FAQ:

Q: Do i need to edit the .ini?
A: It should not be required, the mod comes with an .ini (Skyrim Flora Overhaul.ini) that should get activated automatically.
You might want to edit it if you have performance issues. Increase iMinGrassSize=20 to something like 40, that should give a good boost of FPS but the grasses will be more sparse. 

Q: Does it make all areas in the game summery? 
A: No. The snowy regions are still snowy.

Q: Why is this mod on a separate page from SFO?
A: Because my mods has a tendency to get very cluttered in the files sections and people get confused (and i have to spend time to explain what to download.)

Q: Is this more heavy or more easy on performance in comparison to the vanilla SFO?
A: This is most likely a little bit more heavy on the performance because it has more grasses.

Q: Is this compatible with Static Mesh Improvement Mod ?
A: Yes, but i recommend overwriting with my mod. 

Q: Can i use this with Skyrim 3D Trees and Plants?
A: Yes, i would recommend the Summer version that includes terrain, plants, grass. But probably do not overwrite his plants with mine. It seems like there is also a "Plants only" version which would work with the Complete version of Summer Edition II, again i would probably advice to not use the plants from Summer Ed II.
