Description
============
This mod greatly improves outdoor (and to a degree indoor) performance in Morrowind, as well as fixing a lot of errors related to flora.
Performance in Solstheim, for example, has been tripled on my setup. (from 32 to 97 FPS)

Full list of features:
-Alpha Blending has been disabled in favor of Alpha Testing
-NiTriShapes have been stripped down to a bare minimum to increase performance
-Less bloated mesh structure
-Fixed many shading errors in the original trees
-New, more accurate collision meshes for most trees
-Most trees and flora utilize custom vertex normals which improves their visuals without any performance impact
============
Permissions
============
Feel free to use this in your own mods.

=============
Installation
=============
Drop the contents into your data files folder.

Important!

This will overwrite meshes you already have installed. Do NOT use this with Vurt's Trees.

You absolutely should regenerate Distant Land if you use MGE (XE).
========
Removal
========
Delete the meshes that come with this mod.

Credits

Does this mod diminish graphic fidelity? if so, in what way?

Trees will look slightly different, because of Alpha Test over Alpha Blending, but not necessarily worse. I actually prefer the look. Everything else will look exactly the same or better.

Is this compatible with Morrowind Rebirth?

Yes, but install this mod before Rebirth.

Honestly this is perfect for me! I have the worst damn laptop. Thank you!
I want Morrowind (OpenMW) to become much more optimized and efficient on smaller and older hardware.
