OVERVIEW

´╗┐SKSE plugin which automatically disables parallax on meshes which have missing height textures or conflict with single-pass shaders.

      


Some meshes from mods are provided parallax-enabled. If parallax is enabled but no texture exists for it, the surfaces of the mesh will warp.
Some objects have single-pass shaders which conflict with parallax as no shader permutation exists for both at the same time.

In these instances, parallax will now be disabled. This should also improve performance.

When parallax is disabled:
- Parallax texture does not exist
- Mesh is using a single-pass material shader

Enabling parallax automatically is an experimental option which can be turned on in the INI file.
Where this mod can enable parallax is quite limited, so you should keep parallax meshes installed.

When parallax is enabled:
- Default shader type
- Has vertex colours
- Parallax texture exists
- Not an LOD object
- Does not have transparency
- Does have mesh decals
´╗┐- Backlighting will be automatically disabled







DEVELOPERS ADDING PARALLAX

Meshes require vertex colours.

This mod checks for a height texture first in the mesh. If it doesn't exist, then it modifies the name of the diffuse and checks that, then checks the normal the same way. If a prefix (_d or _n) exists, it will be removed, and _p will be appended.

There are debug options in the INI file, one which visualises meshes with parallax added by making them pink, and another which logs what the parallax textures in use are.
