Default Re: Skyrim .ini tweaks

Here's mine. Nothing fancy except for the ugrid raised to 9 (default 5). Be prepared for a big drop in frame rate. It's brought my 470's to barely playable in some parts but the visual tradeoff is worth it to me.

preface: I'm using the skyrim.exe >2 gig memory addressing tweak. I've heard it's essential to help the engine stay stable once the ugrid count is raised.

Skyrim.ini is:

These are the settings in Inspector. I had to drop them down fairly low once I cranked the ugrids up higher and I'm testing out the vsync being on in inspector to see if that fixes the crazy physics problems I'm experiencing. w/vsync off, the physics are going bat **** crazy indoors and in dungeons. if I activate fraps movie capture that locks in at 60 fps, everything is perfectly fine. I can literally turn fraps video on/off and see the physics go from normal to insane.
