I have an issue with the xLODGen step during Lexy's LOTD Guide (was referred here via their discord). It takes far longer than 2h, closer to 12h as far as i can tell (leave it running overnight). The version of xLODGen used is the one from the guide, downloaded via WJ.
The issue is reproducible on my set up. On the 2nd attempt I triple checked to make sure only terrain LOD was checked, sse-terrain-tamriel.esm checked, each LOD# set up according to screenshots, etc; same outcome. I have no issues elsewhere in Lexy's guide, and once everything is done modded SSE runs perfectly.
PC specs; Ryzen 5 2600X, GTX 1080 8GB, 16GB DDR4 3200mhz RAM, 500GB NVMe SSD, Windows 10. I can also add that when the computer is running xLODGen only, there is barely any CPU utilization in taskmanager/performance. Program is completely responsive though. No errors in the log. The only unusual thing I noticed was that xLODGen takes a long time to switch to the next worldspace (e.g. tamriel -> markarth).
Any help is appreciated.
I do not support 3rd party guides (that means I have no idea what settings or what screenshots you are referring to or what mods are involved).
In case the suggestions mentioned below do not help, be specific about the settings, which worldspace the problem happens, maybe the load order and if it is terrain LOD meshes or terrain LOD textures that seem to take a long time. By all accounts it could be normal or not.
Obviously use the latest version from the first post. Use the x64 version or vice versa the x86 version.
Make sure the OS settings for its page file are default.
Generate the worldspace that takes a long time separately. The generated output can be merged. It is just meshes and textures in separate folders for each worldspace.
