This is a cross-post from 4chan for posterity. I regularly get 55FPS (capped) using the following procedure, which is a mash of STEP instructions, DynDOLOD install procedures, and personal experience. LODs are still pretty crappy-looking, but it’s a Gamebryo game, and they at least match up with what’s actually in the world.
