Wow I tested Ambient Occlusion and I'm taking as much as a 30fps hit at the high quality setting, which is to say it cuts my frame rate in half at times. Using the performance setting the 30fps hit is reduced to 10fps, but that's still a lot. That's with in-game Ultra and no mods. It also adds a ton of shadow shimmering to bushes and other vegitation, and at times turns the grass black, so I don't think I will be using it.

The uGrids tweak works great though, with very little perf hit. uGrids 7 works fine without the LAA tweak.
