Goal of this mod 
Primary: Change landscape to reduce grass clipping through objects and restore lost details (details=pathways and small objects)
Secondary: Improve performance by removing grass where it cannot normally be seen without ~tcl (under Whiterun and inside Buildings of Falkreath for ex.)      & Reduce overgrown sections of some roads  

This mod adds support to the vanilla game for all expanded landscape type grass mods however some may require the 'generic grass limiter' from files here to remove grass from certain dirt/rock textures, check list below or do own comparison.
And yes it will fix some clipping/placement issues with vanilla landscape grass also.

*These are just the grass mods I'm aware of, if you see a grass mod not listed here
it doesn't mean it's not compatible.

Load order information:

Keep this mod near the top of your load order and make sure you load it before any mods that change land height in the areas this mod edits.

Load this mod after Verdant or other grass mod unless otherwise instructed.(If LOOT/Vortex gives cyclic error don't set custom rule for that grass mod)

If you load this mod after mods that edit landscape height you could see things like buried or floating houses, objects, etc.., a tear/gap on the land between cells with different height or even NPCs not able to navigate due to the land height not matching new navmesh.
Do not try to force the edits in this mod to override another mod if you don't know how to test for the issues stated above.

The worst conflict you'll see by having another mod that edits landscape loaded after this mod is no fix for grass clipping in that
area and maybe a texture seam.

Do not ask authors of the mods being patched here for support for any patches on this page. Any issues related to patches here such as terrain/grass should be directed to this page.

Too many patches? I recommend merging grass patches together into one file using the zMerge function of zEdit.
  • Do not merge the patches into the main file of this mod.
A guide on how to make a merge is available over on Lexy's LOTD SE Mod guide Page.


All patches on this page may be flagged as esl.
2020 or newer patches will come esl flagged, older patches are up to you the user to flag for yourself. Use xEdit to flag them. video guide available here  courtesy of GamerPoets.
