OVERVIEW


SKSE plugin which dynamically adjusts shadow and view distance to boost performance.

This mod is inspired by the Fallout 4 mod of the same name.

In CPU constrained situations this can improve performance by around 10%, as well as reducing draw calls by 30%. 

For ENB a menu is added to configure the mod in-game as well as toggle it. Toggling it sets shadows to the max distance setting. The default max distance setting is the vanilla default.



This mod is a bit experimental and may be improved in the future. Performance will vary depending on computer, mods installed, and location. This mod mitigates performance issues, it does not fix them.

An additional benefit is that this mod can make shadows higher resolution in cities.
