Playing a lot of DayZ (and to a much lesser sense, WarZ), I'm starting to really appreciate good grass and shadows. Watching millions of blades of grass wave in the wind is really an amazing (and power consuming) feat to see. So when I saw these new videos of Skyrim mods, (http://kotaku.com/5961994/what-skyrim-looks-like-when-youre-running-100-mods-at-once) I can't wait to see how much closer we are to giving artists tools to create highly detailed landscapes we can play in.

Oh...and he was using a 2500K @ 4Ghz, GTX 670 and couldn't get much past 25fps on 720p. So we are still quite aways away before any of this stuff is stable or affordable. Check this out, he only gets 8fps for this much grass (http://www.abload.de/img/tesv2012-10-3100-34-41pr41.jpg).

In case you forgot what Skyrim looks like without mods:


Fuck you Skyrim...I thought I was done with you...
