This small but mighty texture mod enhances the distant low-detail terrain by re-creating from
scratch, a new more detailed and more defined texture map. This makes the distant terrain look
far better because it reduces blotchy patches, makes the terrain blend better, and generally
makes it all look much crisper.

It is a big difference in my view and for such a little mod, it does look much better. Looking at
screen-shots just doesn't do it justice. Go try it for yourself! Over 100k + people didn't
download it for nothing! ;-)

Key Features:
• Affects everything from dirt to snow
• No performance loss
• No known incompatibilities with other mods

Current Version (1.4) Changes:
- Got rid of some random repeated streaks in the texture. (refinement)
- HD version now doesn't look as sharp and off-putting.

Troubleshooting & Help:
I cannot offer help on the Steam Workshop. You'll have to get support from the Skyrim Nexus which is linked below.

Recommended Mods:
Enhanced Distant Terrain 2 - Trudgement Day [skyrim.nexusmods.com] is highly recommended, but cannot be uploaded to Steam Workshop due to it exceeding Steam Workshop's mod file-size limit.

I am a fan of yours, I own every texture mod you have made. You make the game fun to re-explore.

any performance loss btw?

Not sure what's better: This mod or HD Detailed Terrain (on nexus).. what do you think guys? This mod cleverly smoothens the distant ground texture, while the other replace it by mimicing grass paterns and stuff, so essentially changes the scenery.. but this mod (enhanced distant) doesn't do that..

@DMP would you recommend me to simply subscribe here for this mod? or go to the Enhanced Distant Terrain 2 - on Nexus and download that via NMM? Which version is better?? and does the Distant Terrain 2 includes the 1st in it?

I usuall prefer having most of my mods from the workshop, as it is easiest to deal with.
