Weird Jagged Shadows, Outdoors Only

I was having problems with low-resolution shadows, so I downloaded a couple of shadow fixes off the Nexus (the shadow striping fix and TRoaches' Colorful Lights No Shadows). I also opened the Skyrim launcher to set my shadow textures to high.

 

Anyway, next this happened.

the shadows got even blockier, and weirdest of all, they're only like that on the player character. Did I break something?

 

Load Order:

 

BOSS sorted it into a workable state, but it's probably still not optimal

I'm also using Stakado's Realistic ENB. Turning it off didn't reduce the problem, unfortunately.

 

Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Maybe have to do with ini settings you have forget to tweak?

 

Most of time those programs dont solve anything better find out if you all correctly tweaked and follow the right way install all from ini settings to enb installment plus what your pc can handle and must do to optimize your game.

 

I see you dont have many texture mods or any enhancements maybe its settings of your pc?

AA disable in launcher?

You also have mod that disable shadows i see maybe some conflict?

Your also missing dawnguard unoffcial patch.

Have you install ENB and all thats needed to make it work properly correctly?

 

I know i can tweak shadows ingame in th enb tool and you can set shadows in different settings one of them shows blocky and edge shadows for better performance.

 

Im no expert what couse this problem so don't hold to ill informations i wont give your money back ;)

 

Maybe someone else can give better solutions what couse your ugly shadows.

Some tips on shadow settings in skyrimprefs.ini

http://www.gameskyrim.com/the-definitive-guide-shadow-tweaking-skyrimprefs-ini-t225262.html

 

Another useful clip:

 

"

iShadowMapResolutionPrimary= (This is the primary resolution for reflected "lights" that you see on water, walls, cups, bottles and plates... so on.)
iShadowMapResolutionSecondary= (Same as above but its the secondary resolution.)
iShadowSplitCount= (How many times shadows are split. ie how many shadows one object can cast.)
fShadowLODStartFade= (Lod shadows fade time. ie do the shadows fade out slowly or faster the further away you get from them.)
fShadowLODMaxStartFade= (Like above but the max fade start.)
iShadowMode= (I allways thought this was the shader mode used. ie 1.0, 2.0, 3.0.)
iShadowMaskQuarter= (This controls the interior lights shadow mask, spolights, hemis and shadow onmis all have shadow masks.)
iShadowFilter= (Filters out the shadows. ie abit like anisotropic filtering for shadows )
fShadowBiasScale= (Afects exterior shadows look and position depending on the respective angle the pc is looking.)

Thanks, I'll start tinkering around and see what comes up

 

EDIT: I think the problem is female-only, I ran around with a naked dude for a bit and while the jagged shadows were there, they weren't as big of an issue.

 

I'm going to try reinstalling my replacers.

I reinstalled my old female body replacer, which unborked the shadows! But now I have a "infinity boobs" problem. Ah, well - shouldn't be that hard to fix

 

EDIT: Yup! Fixed it.

 

I guess the lesson here is "highest endorsements doesn't mean it's going to work best for your personal game"

 

Thanks for the help, guys!
