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 Download the first file, NOT the OpenMW-specific version (which is out of date).

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

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).
