Skywind Performance Tweak

Ive been getting allot of questions on YouTube and Ive seen similar questions and complains in the chat.

Allot of people have performance issues and that is normal, you wont get the same performance as in Skyrim and we are well aware of that. 
I could go over the details about why ur getting less fps but what I really care about is providing you guys with a temporary fix.

On my old PC I had the same issue and this gave me a boost of around  15 fps.

when in-game click on the console key (~) then type in ''tg'', this will disable all grass in the environment and should give you some extra fps to work with :) \

I hope that this helps you guys out and I thought that it was a good temporarily fix.

You can use this in Skyrim too btw if you have performance issues but you dont wanna play on lower graphics.

If you have similar fixes please post them below so that you can help your fellow Skywind fans out.

Happy Holidays,

~Kyle

Or alternately, set your grass size to a higher value so you have thicker grass, which in turn lowers the strain on your GPU/CPU as there's technically less grass to shade and shadow, even though the grass is bigger. Surface area, yo, surface area.

Skyrim Configuration tool.

Skyrim Configuration tool. Turn the the grass as far right as possible. Ull have a lot less grass resulting in way better FPS without much Quality loss. 

Also turn off Grass shadows and Shaders and landscape shadows.
