I am using tonnes of huge textures everywhere, but Unique Grasses is the straw that breaks the camel's back for me too. I go into stutter hell when I have it installed at 2K, whereas without it, I only get momentary stutters occasionally when I am near super high texture load areas. BUT, unique grass is by far the best looking grass mod IMHO and even though Grasses on Grasses with density at 40 looks AMAZINGLY close (I tried it at 20 and it looks amazingly stupid, the grass is so dense it doesn't make sense!), I think I am going to try Unique grasses at a lower res to see what happens.
I just further tested glorious grass/grass on steroids also and on close up the "individual grass" textures just look wrong, maybe the stems are just too unrealistically big. I think grass on grass just mess with density/distribution and doesn't mess with the texture themselves.
I think I will play with lush grass & trees again some time... but I remember I had issues with the LOD trees looking all wierd when I use this mod. I do remember that the lush trees make for a much nicer denser more realistic looking forest though.
I have installed the 512 version of Leaves and Dandelion mod and will look out for it in game and report back.
