STEP SE Notes:
Test Files: Depends on what is currently winning for STEP SE. The 2K version is likely the right candidate, however, if the current textures are 4K, then test against both 4K and 2K.

I think i prefer the Better Dirtcliffs Mod.

 

The thing is that in the first picture it looks like old dead roots and therfore less dirt, in Better Dirt Mod it looks more like living roots and therefore more dirt.

 

But i really think it is best down by the water under the overhang, looks natural  and realistic to have some dirt there so close to  the water.

 

But it is really up to taste. (How long would roots look healthy in the air llike in the Better Dirtcliffs Mod before turning into dry and grey roots? :)

I like where this mod is going and in many cases seems like an improvement ... but I think the dirt is too dark in some cases and contrasts too much with the bedrock. The third compare set really shows this. Looks like there was an oil spill. I would love it if the author lightened the dirt up just a bit. LOD would look really stark.

 

Vanilla doesn't look good either, but blends better, especially in the distance.
