Great mod! Sadly, I can't use it. Two places in the city cause my fps to chug down to crashy levels. I've isolated the problem to the trees. Only happens when I look at one of two particular groups of trees. One of these locations is on the campus of Stillwater U.

My machine isn't new, but it's not a potato by any stretch. Certainly shouldn't have a problem with SR2. Any chance of releasing a version that doesn't upscale the leaves on the trees?
 
...Or maybe I'm crazy! Those places just wig out at random it seems. Was sure it had something to do with the trees. Maybe trees and rain? Hell, I dunno now.

Still a hella great mod. Good job!

Are you using any other mods? Try using this file instead

I'll give that file a try now, I'm game for anything.

And yes, I'm using 2 of your optionals. The more peds, and darker nights. If I use /just/ those two, without the visual overhaul files, it seems fine. But yeah, I'll totally give that file a go and report back.

Thanks!

*Edit: and i'm using GotR, naturally ^^

Not sure what you did, but preliminarily; that file seems to have done the trick. I followed the navpath from the starter crib to Stillwater U (which usually hits both trouble spots) and I didn't have any problems.

The real test will be testing it again on a rainy night. Those two factors combined have been really rough in the past, but just for Stillwater U, and just with the two visual overhaul files.

But no, yeah, so far so good, thanks. I'll keep you posted.
