Sadly, it didn't work for me under Linux (pink textures):
I dont know why this happened (sry man). I'll have to look into this. Stay tuned.

Try it now (download on the first page). Hopefully it will work this time.

It seems you have fixed it, I tried that new version alone and combined with other mods, so far so good!
Thanks!

Yo, win 7 x64 its working and looking nice!

My performace is not too good, even on terrain distance 1.. lets say around 40fps... before I was capped at 60, but I think without VSYNC and this mod disabled Im at 100plus FPS..

I monitor my resource usage closely and my GTX 970 card is chilling at cca 33% usage.
Seems the CPU is bottlenecking (AMD FX 8300 at 4.1ghz) - its the draw calls for sure.
The cores are not even 100% utilized. So that means the optimalization must be done somehow...

The terrain creation when you move towards another "square" is also very affected by this mod. Takes lets say 10-15 seconds to generate, while be4 it was like 1-2 secs.

BUT

I know this is just a start! This will eventually be all solved and than this will be a must have mod.

Its truly very good MOD for such a early stage of development and performance issues are to be expected with something of this scale, altering 1000s of trees...

Go on pls guys :)

Hmm, well Ive done all I can from my part of expertise: Optimized polycount, texture size & LOD's distances. Everything else is out of my league.

Ive told @TheLacus that Ive maybe found the potential performance problem: SPTree uses 8 side mesh for the billboard LOD distance! On one hand this is great because you get to see 8 different billboard sides at a great LOD distance. But that is also a potential huge problem for the DFU, since it uses just one billboard card and one texture side for the LOD distance. You add the math. :(

NOTE: Ive updated and added Test Configuration and Performances on the first page, so player could have rough estimate of what to expect.

This will get solved, dont worry. I remember how my mod ran before one year... there was less than 1/2 of current assets and no advanced materials and it killed any PC on demand just like that.

In few months, the same progress will happen with your mod. It will fly - I believe we have some skilled ppl onboard who can take care of it:)

Also, my cpu is becoming archaic (yet I LOVE how it copes in 2019)
Its all about the CPU botleneck in case of this mod... so...
You have nice performance on your ryzen5 and thats basically a mainstream CPU nowadays - not bad for a early beta
