DynDOLOD 2.19/2.20 / 2.21 condensed update post | Full Update Post | Skyrim Special Edition

What’s New?

This updates includes minor speed improvements for DynDOLOD.exe and TexGen.exe, 64 bit executables and visual improvements for billboards used as static LOD (higher LOD levels 8/16) if using the ultra tree LOD option. Of course there are also a few updates for a couple mods.

See Full update post for 2.xx update instructions

 

64 bit executables
To avoid confusion, this has nothing to do with Skyrim SE being 64 bit. Just going with the flow. There is no requirement for this right now, but it will work natively with 64 bit managers or if executed directly. 64 bit versions are a tiny bit slower due to a couple reasons, but obviously they will allow for more data to be loaded... in the future... for insanely large load orders. Another long term benefit is, that the 64 bit changes are merged back into xEdit sources.

Improvements for billboards used as static LOD
When using the ultra tree option and you ever thought far away trees or trees on the map look too dark or too bright, check out the new Trees on the Map section in docs\trees.ultra\DynDOLOD-Trees.html. The new default settings should already result in better lighting behavior. If not try any of the additional tips from the manual. To update an existing save game, it is enough to just do an update generation with the existing DynDOLOD.esp in the load order. Then no clean save cycle is required. Just a save in an interior before updating.

Persistent references
There is a new switch Temporary=0/1 in ..\DynDOLOD\Edit Scripts\DynDOLOD\DynDOLOD_TES5.ini, which instructs the patcher to use less persistent references. This is for users who have so many mods installed and suffer from CTD when clicking new as we discussed recently. The downside is, that by using temporary references more plugins may have to be used as masters and the generated DynDOLOD.esp will be larger, because of additional CELL data that needs to be copied. If you do not have any problems starting the game there should be no reason to use this setting.

Hi there,

 

I've updated to 2.19 and am starting a new game. Rebuilding/installing from scratch. I seem to be getting this error everytime however:

 

"[00:05:45.246]    Exception in unit userscript line 322: List index out of bounds (-1)"

 

Here's a link to the log if it sheds any light: https://www.dropbox....OD_log.txt?dl=0

 

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here!

 

Thanks

Looks like something I did. There will be a new version fixing this soon.

 

Edit: should be fixed in 2.20

Might be caused by a problematic billboard dds. Did you try more than once to see if this is a repeatable error?

 

If the problem is consistent, upload/post DynDOLOD\Edit Scripts\DynDOLOD\cache\DynDOLOD_TES5_tamriel_flat_textures_used.txt

Let me know which tree mods / billboards you installed.

Deleted everything and redone, gets through 2 atlas textures and provides an "Exception in unit userscript line 322: CreateProcess failed, error code 2" and no log created @ ..\DynDOLOD\logs\DynDOLOD_log.txt

Are you using MO 2.x beta by any chance? Are you executing DynDOLOD.exe or DynDOLODx64.exe?

What is the installation path of DynDOLOD? The Game?

 

The error indicates a problem starting DynDOLOD\Edit Scripts\LODGen.exe or LODGenx64.exe, make sure it is the latest version from 2.19/2.20

 

The DynDOLOD_log.txt will be created when you close DynDOLOD.exe.

I'm still on MO v1.3.11 executing on the DynDOLOD.exe.

 

I found the logs in the Overwrite folder.

It looks like you installed DynDOLOD Standalone as a mod in MO. Do not do that.

Install it into a new 'DynDOLOD' folder outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', the SteamApps or game folders and Mod Organizers virtual file structure.

Hi there,

 

Thank you for putting forth the time and effort to create such an expansive mod. However, I fear the worst has happened. I have spent the last month working to try and get my Skyrim fully modded. Everything was working perfectly for me, with ENB, SKSE, memory patches, etc at 60FPS without stuttering. I was done. I was finished. People kept recommending I download this Mod, so I gave it a shot.

 

Now, my game stutters like a hyped-up Nord on a sugar rush. Graphics look funny... game crashes constantly... and I followed the guide step by step using Poets video. I tried it again at the lowest settings and the same things happened. Performance wise, im getting huge FPS drops.

 

And so, I uninstalled by deleting the folders and removing any mods associated with DynDOLOD. My game still is stuttering and looks even worse.

 

What are my options, or am I required to just start from scratch?

Note: Yes, my game i fully patched, fully optimized, etc. I just want to try and go back in time here... if at all possible... and uninstall properly.

 

My Specs:

Windows 10 64 Bit

AMD 395X 4GB

16GB RAM

I can not really help with problems the game already has when DynDOLOD is not installed. I suggest you follow a modding guide like S.T.E.P. from the ground up.

Then read the performance section in the manual.

Nice work on the persistent records toggle.  I may just have to overcook things again just to test it!  After the previous discussions I stripped out four or five mods and have been running 'lite' ever since :P
