About this mod

Texture reduction to improve performance on low-resource computers.
Requires Skyrim Flora Overhaul 2.72D of vurt. Copy and replace.
Tested in Skyrim Special Edition. Hardware: i7-7700, GTX 1650 super, 16GB RAM.

Permissions and credits
Thanks to vurt for Skyrim Flora Overhaul. And for allowing me to share this optimization for your wonderful work

Caution: don't let the vurt chests be empty! I recommend leaving part of your gold with the donation button that he provides in his profile and/or in Skyrim Flora Overhaul. This increases vurt's health. More health = more probability that he will make us happy!

Important: before reporting a texture problem to vurt. I recommend trying Skyrim Flora Overhaul without my optimization to verify that it is not a problem that I caused.

Additional optimization for playing with ENB + ReShade + DynDOLOD [FPS+]
Reference Hardware: Intel i7 7700, Nvidia GTX 1650 super, 16GB RAM 3000MHz

To configure review The Truth ENB
My configuration (summary):
Run SkyrimSELauncher.exe from your Skyrim Special Edition folder. Click Options, click Hight, Advanced and make sure 64-bit Render         Targets is checked. And uncheck Snow Shader and Lens Flare. 
Setting Antialiasing to TAA, un-check window mode.

Open your SkyrimPrefs.ini file from your Documents->My Games->Skyrim Special Edition directory, and set bTreesReceiveShadows=1, bShadowsjavascript-event-stripped1 (may need to add manually), and bDrawLandShadows=1.

Settings for enbseries.ini:
[EFFECTS] section > all "false"
[COMPLEXFIRELIGHTS] section > EnableBigRange=false
[COMPLEXPARTICLELIGHTS] section > EnableBigRange=false

Reality - A Performance ReShade

Dynamic Distant Objects LOD - DynDOLOD
