Hi!

Firts of all, thanks for this exellent mod that brings new life to Oblivon!

I have some issues with exterior shadows as they render only couple feet away from my character.

OR 8.2.2. exterior shadows Oblivi14
OR 8.2.2. exterior shadows Oblivi15
OR 8.2.2. exterior shadows Oblivi16
OR 8.2.2. exterior shadows Oblivi17

Shadowed area moves with my charater as she runs/jumps or camera is rotated.

I tried tweaking shadows.ini and maxing out ExteriorNear shadow map size made the shadowed area bigger but all the shadow detail was lost. Interior shadows are working just fine.

I have followed installation instructions and set up my settigs and oblivion.ini accordingly. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Or Windows 10 if you're on that. Save you from having to download a new program (assuming you don't already have it).

Looks like your shadow draw distance is set very low. Try a higher value

I tried to give fShadowLOD1 and fShadowLOD2 bigger values but it didn't help (assuming that these are the values that control shadows in oblivion.ini).

Shadows dont exist in the vanilla game so there are no settings to control the shadows in the vanilla game.
OR adds them.

As i can see in the video the shadowmap is very little and this creates the problem.
The file where you can set up the values is "Shadows.ini" in the OblivionReloaded\Shadows folder (under the shaders package folder).
But the default ones are enough to see the shadow on the entire near grid (5x5 cells), so if you didnt change them, you didnt install OR correctly and the file is missed or it has wrong values due to a previuos installation.

Dont use installers, download the package, unzip it and copy the files into the data folder (overwrite if asked). Nothing else.

Thank you Alenet!

I did a clean installation of Oblivion + selected mods and installed OR the last. Now shadows are working like a charm. I'm so happy.
