World Map in Full 3D

World Map 1

Mod changes camera controls in ingame world map view so it becomes possible to zoom in almost to the ground and explore area around character in full detail.

Watch video to see the result.


1. Game doesn't start or crashes on save load - remove lines with uLockedObjectMapLOD and uLockedTerrainLOD (this may lower objects and terrain detail on the map)

2. Love clouds? Then remove line that contains sMapCloudNIF

    okay, I'll just disable this for now and wait for your update. I hope they release the Kit soon

    They define detail of objects and terrain on world map, by default they are 16 and 32, very low detailed. For some reason lowering them prevents game from loading savegame/fast trevel. I myself have 1 savegame that is not loading with this mod, but others seems fine. Just wait until SDK comes out, I'll try to remake this mod from scratch then.

    thank you for the reply, I tried some things:

    -only uLockedTerrainLOD=0: the game loads, but the map doesn't change a lot if you compare it without variables (the first 2 that is)

    -only uLockedObjectMapLOD=0: game doesn't load

    - uLockedObjectMapLOD=8: game loads, but as with the first one, the map still looks horrible

    -uLockedObjectMapLOD=16: same as with uLockedObjectMapLOD=8

    -uLockedObjectMapLOD=4: game doesn't load

    -uLockedObjectMapLOD=8 and uLockedTerrainLOD=0: game loads but once again, map hasn't changed.

    could you tell me what these variables do exactly and what the different values for each variable mean?

    Try changing these two vars' values to something like 0-1-2-4-6-8-...-16-32, or remove only one of them. I don't have that bug so I can't debug it, seems it is some other config variables dependant. Anyway currently without Creation Kit the only manipulations can be made for this mod is changing values in config.

    I decided to give this mod a try because it looks awesome. so i did the skyrim.ini change and loaded the game up. My last save was in my house (breezehome) and when i opened the map i could just see my house and everything else was blue (no problem there, i expected something like that. So I decided to go outside to see what it looks like, but the game wouldn't load. The game didn't freeze because the model in the load screen kept moving forwards and backwards, but that was the only thing that happened for 10 minutes and i decided to ctrl-alt-delete and close the game. I tried other things like opening different saves (in caverns, towns, outside...) and when I'm outside the game just doesn't load. I then went on to deleting the first 2 lines in the .ini (uLockedObjectMapLOD and uLockedTerrainLOD), and that fixed it, the game started loading again, but the map doesn't look nice at all, buildings and objects are out of place/ halfway into the ground, no trees etc.)

    could this be fixed? or is this something you can't do anything about?

    What location are you in? World map doesn't work indoors or in towns, sadly no workaround for this yet, need to wait for Creation Kit.

    Not working on my machine. The whole map is neutral gray.


    [MapMenu] bWorldMapNoSkyDepthBlur=1 fWorldMapNearDepthBlurScale=0 fWorldMapDepthBlurScale=0 fWorldMapMaximumDepthBlur=0 fMapMenuOverlayNormalStrength=2.2000 fMapMenuOverlayNormalSnowStrength=0.8000 fMapWorldMaxPitch=360.0000 fMapWorldMinPitch=0.0000 fMapWorldYawRange=3600.0000 fMapWorldTransitionHeight=130000.0000 fMapWorldMaxHeight=130000.0000 fMapWorldMinHeight=130.0000 fMapWorldCursorMoveArea=0.9000 fMapWorldHeightAdjustmentForce=100.0000 fMapWorldZoomSpeed=0.0500 fMapLookMouseSpeed=0.5000 fMapMoveKeyboardSpeed=0.0100 fMapZoomMouseSpeed=2.5000

    I can see everything and zoom but with very low details.





    I can see the the selected details but it those not work with both.

    Any help?
