About this mod

This mod removes over 15,000 trees from the Tropical Skyrim mod while introducing other performance boosts and removing unwanted trees from out of rocks and walls but still keeping the tropical island feel so you won't even notice the difference!

OG MOD: Tropical Skyrim Optimised [TSOP]


What is TSOP?

Tropical Skyrim by Soolie is a pretty amazing mod that overhauls Skyrim's wintery
climate to a jungle oasis. If you're reading this then you already knew
that. The only problem with the mod is that it kills performance thanks
to the sheer number of trees and other foliage it adds to the game. In
some areas, foliage is so dense that paths are completely blocked or
trees are growing in very unrealistic places. TSOP cleans up every
single area of the game world to move or delete unwanted trees. It's
that simple...but took a while to do by hand.

Ok, but why?

 Some people can't run Tropical Skyrim with playable fps or simply want to
play with the mod on their lower-spec laptop for a change (like me), so I
created this plugin as a quick personal solution. I have focused mainly
on the dense jungle areas where performance suffered mostly from a
large number of trees added but almost every cell in-game is improved
for optimisation - over 15,000 trees removed in total! Since there was
nothing similar to this on the nexus I've decided to share it so others
may benefit.

Over 15,000 trees there's no trees left?
 Quite the opposite! Even though this plugin deletes an enormous number of
objects to improve performance, the difference in-game is hardly
noticeable. You will still feel as though you are travelling through a
dense jungle and many areas such as desert plains will be practically
unaffected. See the images tab for direct comparisons of some of the
more noticeable changed regions. Here's an example of Falkreath:

Should I endorse this mod if I like it?

 Hell yeah.
