I have a couple of questions about using your tools correctly.  I've been told quite different things by several very experienced SSE mod devs and would appreciate your definitive input.


1) I was told there is an advantage to using both LODGEN (for terrain) -and- DYNDOLOD (for objects) in SSE.  I currently just use DYNDOLOD, since it appears to be a strict super-set of LODGEN?


2) The Oldrim DYNDOLOD OpenCities instructions call for doing 2 passes (static options w/o OpenCities & Blowing in the Wind and not saving; then dynamic options with everything and saving), BUT this section appears to be omitted in the SSE DYNDOLOD instructions.  Should I continue doing SSE DYNDOLOD in 1 pass, since it appears to detect OpenCities for some settings at runtime in the logs, -or- two passes as described in the Oldrim instructions?


Thank you for your efforts on these great tools and your time in answering our questions.

1) DynDOLOD is the advanced and easier version of xLODGen for improved object and tree LOD generation for Skyrim LE/SE/VR. For more see https://forum.step-p...-post/?p=184163


2) Read DynDOLOD_Manual_SSE.html carefully. Under "Skyrim Special Edition Key Differences and Similarities" it says: Basic knowledge of DynDOLOD for Skyrim is expected, refer to the main manual. This document just points out what is different or which important parts are similar. Open Cities requires a 2 pass generation as explained in the main manual.
