There is no plugin for Designs of the Nords.

Is there a need for a patch, then?

 

Edit: DarkladyLexy was faster than me :-)

Edit2: ...again

Thought of looking at what textures look like using DDS viewer, compare to the other mod and select by removing/hiding the unwanted textures.

 

All is fine, the textures look great indeed.

I have a few performance mod suggestions.

 

"Decrease those plants" both options (Non- SFO and SFO) in The Ruffled Feather mod pack - This mod optimized vanilla and SFO grass meshes for better performance. I have been using it for ages. 

 

Remove Underwater Grass and other stuff too - A Performance Mod by Cauug 

https://www.nexusmod...m/mods/55240/?- This mod removed underwater grass and small rocks by using blank meshes. I use this blank mesh to remove a few hideous grasses (IMO) from SRLE LOTD setup as well (I can share custom list if you want). With Frostfall, no swimming for me. Why waste performance on something you rarely see.

 

I gained about ~3-5 FPS on my 980ti in heavy grass/lake area when using both mods.

I'll make a 'Possible Mods You Might Like To Consider For Increased Performance' section for things like these. Cause I still do swim, Frostfall or not. Though it would be interesting to know what grasses you find hideous.

I do swim as well, but not that frequent especially in cold area.  

This is the list of grass/plants/rocks that I hide with blank meshes (for performace and/or I found them out of place and/or simply don't like them)

Performance mods were the first thing I spent days looking at. The ones that seem to actually do something I've found:

1. If you're not using an ENB, the lighting tweak for FPS gain (not a mod, an .ini tweak, but the nexus page is good)
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/59533/?

2. Ye old standard, grass on steroids with the appropriate .ini tweaks (iMinGrassSize=128) , to replace other grass mods instead. This is not a gain unless you make the severe grass cut though.
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/33582/?

3. Skyrim Performance PLUS - reduce textures significantly on things like Riften falling aspen leaves, falling pine needles, rain, snow. Some compatibility issues with the guide I have worked out, I can post them later if anyone is interested. (mostly stuff like "don't use the water droplet enhancer with this bc it defeats te purpose" etc)
https://www.nexusmod...rim/mods/6387/?

4. Insig object remover already got a shout out

5. Fog mesh remover, remove exterior fog, and remove interior fog v2 all remove fog particles for gain. One of them even makes ENB added distant fog look better, IMO.

https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/58212/? - this one makes ENB added distant mountain fog look nicer
https://www.nexusmod...yrim/mods/736/? - removes dust particles in interiors
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/29253/? - removes the same as no. 1 but indoors -warning - does make it darker in dungeons

6. No more glowing weapons - linked to it in an earlier post, tiny boost is still a boost ;)

7. Low res particles and decals - again, user choice, I like performance more than I like hi res decals. needs to replace some upgrades / be put after things to overwrite them, like embers, or hd fire. You can pick and choose, personally, low res smoke seems like a no brainer at least
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/53692/?

9. colorful lights no shadows + DLC is problematic. yes, FPS gain and brighter interiors. unfortunately, with usleep/uskp adding a room in the ragged flagon, it bugs the flagon floor bc vanilla light sources changed (extra room added). as far as I know the dlc version has no such issue
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/10789/?
https://www.nexusmod...im/mods/54964/? - DLC

Last but not least I am trying out purity too. no idea if it's any good but if you don't use ENB it may make things ... less vanilla, IDK. My computer may not be able to handle it and its certainly no gain, but I think it's less of a loss than Vivid Weathers.

there may be more, if I find the others I thought were OK I will post again. hope it helps

There's also a tree performance mod available on steam only that I haven't looked at yet because steam.

I'm curious, why?  It's quite trivial to import a steam mod into mod organizer.

I'm just trying to understand what objective reason exists?  If there's a real concern with Steam mods that I'm unaware of then I'd like to be educated...
