Yeah, the up close grass is a little too dark, but I really like the way it shadows the buildings and trees in the distance compared to the Oblivion one.

And to make it look even better I found this mod:

It adds shadows to to the lod trees and makes them much better looking. They don't stick out like before, so I dropped my uGrids down to 7 for the better performance.

Still seeing static waterfalls that only start to animate when you get near them. It's like they need to be switch on or something because when you move back, they still animate.

Not sure if that's a LOD issue. You can see it on this shot actually http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads...1321387878.jpg

raising the ugrid value fixes this.

No it's not. I doubt game developers spend time implementing useless features, especially when time is important to them.

Show me one game that has it where it offers a substantial performance increase.

Why does it have to be all about performance? MTR is a DX11 feature and I doubt many games yet make use of it. The new Unreal Engine does but it allows developers to do more advanced effects more efferently. Why would anyone not want that and not all features are exposed to the player as much as people think.

There is a reason why DX11 is not being used greatly in such games, one is that is allows devs to do effects a lot more effectively than DX9. This has been proved with DX10 as it gives better performance.

The game will black screen if your settings are higher than what your computer can run.
