Hi there, I updated my mod list to the most recent version of DynDOLOD from version 2.67 to 2.81. After generating the ultra trees certain trees are brighter than their up close full 3D tree. This didn't happen with version 2.67. The hybrid trees and the mods that I use stayed the same. It doesn't have to do anything with ENB because when loading the .bto meshes in Nifskope the difference in brightness remains. I didn't change any settings in the DynDOLOD_TES5.ini so that can't be the problem either. There is also no difference in the texture atlases. What could be the problem here?

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Pictures to show the difference:

Hello, when generating DynDOLOD you can adjust LOD brightness.  Many variables effect in-game LOD brightness including weather, lighting, and especially ENB and ReShade presets if used.  

 

To adjust LOD brightness to better suit your LO, use advanced settings in DynDOLOD and the dropdown box "LOD Brightness".  0 is default and negative numbers decrease brightness.  

 

This is also addressed in this very informative video:  https://www.youtube....h?v=8gu8inzs09s

 

Hope this helps.

I can not really see anything in the tiny screenshots or spot any difference in anything.

 

You did not mention what tree mod you are using.

Thanks both of you for your replies. I have uploaded the images to imgbox and it seems that the links don't work. Here are the original pictures.

The right picture shows the LOD generated with 2.67 and the left shows the same bto mesh generated with 2.81. No different configuration was used.

I already tried changing the brightness within the configuration menu of Dyndolod but as I mentioned before only the one tree isn't generated with the same brightness as the original 3D tree whereas it was generated correctly before. So if I change the brightness the other trees will be brighter too.

I am using the latest version of Dyndolod with Skyrim LE. My DynDOLOD Ultra trees for Skyrim Flora Overhaul 2.5b found here https://www.nexusmod...98499?tab=files and Skyrim Flora Overhaul 2.5b.

It is not setting the vertex color flag properly it seems. This is fixed in 2.82
