Better Dynamic Ash* SE
*100% organic volcanic ash

Better Dynamic Ash SE (BDA) uses the shader created by SparrowPrince for Better Dynamic Snow. It's been updated to apply the installed ash texture as a material to objects that appear in Solstheim (Dragonborn DLC); thus, giving the user ash covered objects.

  • 31 "bug fixes" to vanilla ash objects
  • Updated the "AshMaterial*" variants to apply the ash texture slightly better
  • Replaced 365 object references across Solstheim with ash covered versions
  • Adds new ash versions of 82 objects. These are objects that didn't have an "ash" version in vanilla.
  • Corrected the shader angle on 19 objects. This reduces the "stretching" effect with with texture replacers.
