I have been using the incredible Oblivion Reloaded Mod for many years (various versions and updates) but only recently installed RamDisk Software. I activated the RamDisk and have the OR ini file appropriately set to utilize it. I have also installed the Distant_LOD folder as instructed. My question, however, is concerning the "far_nif files" and the "low-res Texture files". I have no idea what exactly they are or where to find them in the game folder. I mean, there are far-nif files scattered throughout the Mesh folder. And what exactly is meant by "low-res" within the Texture folder? Thank you to all in advance!
Ram disk is an old unsupported version of OR. Consider upgrading. I'll answer your question, but it has nothing to do with OR; please try to keep questions here about OR.
far_nifs and lowres are for the distant LOD. There is a folder in the textures BSA ("textures\lowres\") that applies to distant LOD. The best thing to do for Distant LOD is to download "Really AEVWD", install it, and then run "TESLODGen". The vanilla DistantLOD is basically limited to the Imperial City.
