Not just a re-texture
“Grasslands” is an overhaul which offers new grasses to the game including flowers. The flowers offer beautiful meadows (in my opinion) in some areas of the game such as in the forests, which now are a lot more alive. Not just forests have been modified however, the cities now have more life to them with grass growing out of the piles of rubbish and debris, the marshes have been modified, and could actually offer better performance than the original game! The beaches and other areas have also been changed to look better.
There may be a performance hit, although from my testing it wasn’t much of an impact. There are performance editions on offer, which lower the density and remove grasses underneath the water to improve fps.
There are two versions of the mod. “Healthy” will look like most of the screenshots and videos and has flowers and meadows, “Unhealthy” is a more dead looking version, and doesn’t have any flowers but may also have better performance.
For help with mods I suggest visiting Gopher’s Channel and also Gamerpoets for helpful tutorials regarding modding Fallout 4
Use a mod manager! I suggest NMM
Download the mod to your mod manager. With NMM simply click on the “Download With Manager” button on the files section
Make sure you have bInvalidateOlderFiles=1 under [Archive] in your Fallout4Custom.ini
Install the mod and overwrite all if asked
Have ONLY ONE esp enabled at a time
Double click on the mod in NMM to uninstall, press delete to completely remove it or disable the esp in the plugin section to stop the mod from being activated, although the textures will still remain
Compatable with any mods apart from ones which modify grass using an esp, such as “More Grass”, or “Lush Landscapes”
