How to Patch
  • Mods that add their own material shaders will not be affected by this mod's changes.
    • Change the new snow material shaders to non-"single pass".
  • Mods that add new snow-covered structures will not be affected by this mod's snow removal under roof implementation.
    • Add a custom "no snow" decal to the nif to remove snow under the roof.
  • .Nifs with BSTriShape/NiTriShape nodes with NiAlphaProperty will not have snow cover.
    • If the NiAlphaProperty property was added by mistake on a mesh that doesn't actually have transparency, just remove the NiAlphaProperty property.
    • If there is actual transparency, we need to create a custom snow decal.
  • .Nifs with BSTriShape/NiTriShape nodes with no BSLightingShaderProperty will crash and will need a patch.
    • Delete these BSTriShape/NiTriShape nodes since they are invisible anyways.

  • Install whenever.
  • Uninstall whenever.
  • Let this mod's meshes overwrite every other mod.

Q: Is this compatible with mod xyz?
A: Check information included in the Compatibility and How to Patch sections. This mod is designed to be compatible, but I can't help you check everything.

Q: Did I install this mod correctly?
A: If you installed this mod correctly, you should get smooth roof snow transitions and no snow under the blacksmith roof.

Q: Is this compatible with other snow shader mod?
A: No. This is not compatible with BDS2, or BDS3, or any thing similar.

Q: Does this mod change anything other than snow shader?
A: No. It doesn't change snow landscape textures, or snow drifts, or footprints on snow, or snowy weather, or ice magic, or anything else.

Q: Is this compatible with NSUTR?
A: No. This mod already removes snow from under roofs.

Q: But I still want to use this with NSUTR, can you help me?
A: You are free to install anything to your game; however, this mod is light-weight; you use this so you don't have to deal with the hassle of hundreds of location edits, incompatibilities, and patches. Using this mod with NSUTR is antithetical to the mod's goal and will not be supported.

Q: Is this mod better than other snow mods?
A: "Better" is subjective.

Q: Why should I use this over other mods?
A: You are free to use whatever mods you desire.
