DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM Main Page

DynDOLOD is active

The main page allows manual activation/deactivation of dynamic LOD for troubleshooting or in order to make a clean save.

Large References Fix

Skyrim Special Edition, Skyrim VR and Enderal SE only.

If the large reference system is used (uLargeRefLODGridSize > uGridsToLoad), the Large Reference Fix checkbox should be checked, so that dynamic LOD objects for large references in the FarGrid switch correctly.

If uLargeRefLODGridSize is turned off (uLargeRefLODGridSize <= uGridsToLoad), the Large Reference Fix checkbox should be unchecked, so that dynamic LOD objects for large references in the FarGrid switch correctly.

The setting can be changed at any time, however it is suggested to do the switching in an interior (or go into inside after the change), so the new setting can be applied correctly to all affected dynamic LOD objects once going outside again.

If DynDOLOD DLL is used, the default setting can be set manually by editing ..\SKSE\Plugins\DynDOLOD_Data\DynDOLOD_Worlds.txt by setting largereffix=1 or largereffix=0

If PapyrusUtil is used, the default setting can be set manually by editing ..\SKSE\Plugins\StorageUtilData\DynDOLOD_Worlds.json by setting "largereffix":1, or "largereffix":0,

When the file DynDOLOD_Worlds.json is created by DynDOLOD, it will try to set a sensible default value based on the uLargeRefLODGridSize setting in SkyrimPrefs.ini at that time.

The values in above screenshot are examples. Use BethINI to set sensible values to start with. The best values depend on the load order, personal preference for visuals and performance.

Information

DynDOLOD SkyUI MCM Information Page

This information can help with troubleshooting.

The bunch of random numbers in the right panel all need to match. If they don't match, it means a file is from a different generation process and generation or installation went wrong.
