STEP 10 - LANDSCAPE ADDITIONS

Enhanced Landscapes

Download and install the main file.


FOMOD instructions:

Warning: If you choose the Enhanced Solstheim Trees option, you will need to generate 3D tree LOD later on which is more performance- and VRAM-hungry than regular LOD. Unless you have at least a mid-range PC, don’t choose this option.

You can skip the Lanscapes Textures option in the FOMOD if you prefer MystiriousDawn’s Landscape textures which would be mostly overwritten. This is what I personally do. So far I have not yet found any horribly mismatched textures.

LH’s DirtCliff Remaster (optional)

The controversy around LupusHegemonia is a long story. Essentially, this mod author behaved like a complete jerk wherever he appeared in the post sections of various mod pages on the Nexus, insulting and belittling people left and right.

After he was accused by multiple mod authors of stealing their textures and publishing them under his own name with small changes, Nexus staff members asked him to provide proof that he did indeed create his textures himself. This caused LH to throw a temper tantrum and he went on to hide all his files (retextures and a somewhat colourful mod guide called BOSS). His complete refusal to cooperate then earned him a full ban (see here).

That being said, one of his textures (HD DirtCliff Remaster) looks particularly good – so good in fact that I decided to re-integrate them into the guide. Since he was banned from the Nexus, LH created a new website with his mods (here) but it requires you to log in.

I have reuploaded them to Google drive for your convenience:
