Better Riften

This is a WIP mod and adds much more details and architecture to Riften, creating a really great atmosphere. Almost 90% of the city is enhanced and polished. Have a look at the screenshots!

As mentioned before, this mod is Work in Progress, so keep watching for further updates. :)

Have a look at the new peview videos. :) (thanks, Arsenalrobert!)

Why when somebody tried to make a city "better", he add a ton of trees ? It's a goddamn medieval city, not a modern park, and trees are all but pratical in a town..
