First, enable groundcover by adding
enabled = true to the
[Groundcover] section of your
settings.cfg file (add the section if it isn't already there).
These settings can affect performance and should be adjusted carefully:
density = 0.5and adjust as desired to handle the density of your groundcover (up to
min chunk size = 1.0, again adjusting as needed (up to
stomp mode = 2and
stomp intensity = 2for a "stomp" effect that's most noticeable.
rendering distance = 6144.0controls how far out the groundcover will be drawn (in this case, roughly one cell), this will likely have a noticeable impact on performance.
Please see the Tips: Performance page for more information about how to do performance tweaking and testing, as well as the official documentation for groundcover (settings page), for more information about other related settings.
