Description:
This mod adds high quality grass and groundcover to almost all regions in the game as well as all Tamriel Rebuilt areas.

NOTE: As of 2021-01-27 a 0.47 unreleased build is required to use this without a significant FPS hit! Download the OpenMW-specific archive.

MO2 Users: make sure MO2 doesn't auto-enable the plugins from this mod; see the Extra Configs section below for correct installation details.

This is listed as "partially working" because the rocks, mushrooms, and normal maps don't work correctly out of the box. Remiros Groundcover OpenMW Patch fixes these issues and should be installed on top of this (list readers: it's next).

If you're following a list such as "Total Overhaul" or "Graphics Overhaul", you only need the data files from this and not the plugins (needed for grass in Solstheim Tomb of the Snow Prince).

Add this to your openmw.cfg:

groundcover=Rem_GL.esp
groundcover=Rem_WG.esp
groundcover=Rem_AL.esp
groundcover=Rem_BC.esp
groundcover=Rem_Solstheim.esp
groundcover=Rem_AC.esp
groundcover=Rem_AI.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_BC.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_AI.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_AT.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_GL.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_AC.esp
groundcover=Rem_TR_WG.esp

Add this to your settings.cfg:

[Groundcover]
enabled = true
density = 0.5
min chunk size = 0.5
stomp mode = 2
stomp intensity = 2
Requires BSA:
