Description
This is a mod that adds new levels of detail to the towns and villages around Skyrim, Immersing you in stunning scenery, and adding functionality to the rather boring and useless villages. This is to compliment my other mod, --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------which will change city exteriors (Currently only Whiterun, check it out at http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=68135774)

Follow me on twitter for News on my upcoming Mod, The Rocky Isles (It's pretty massive! :D)

Shors Stone is Done! Check it out! Pics are up! :]

Towns Changed:

Rorikstead - Done: Now looks much better, a shrine of Talos was added along with a statue, and a mill. Many foliage items and rocks have been placed, along with new light sources around the city (Shown in pictures!) CHICKENS! And a cow...

Riverwood - Will probably leave this place alone :(

Dragon Bridge - Done: A heck of a lot more detail, guards, buildings, rocks, trees, shrubs, flowers, effects, animals, archatecture, lighting etc. This is probably the most "Rescource Heavy Town." Many more light sources have been added, as the town seemed quite dull and dark (Especially after the Pines....) There are also more guards, and checkpoints, to make it seem more like an Imperial Village, which it is.
(You cannot access the building at the moment, It's on the cliff edge near the bridge, some new NPC's will be coming to Live inside it, and maybe even a quest) Secret Chest ;)

Karthwasten - Done: Many more plants, re-textured the town, added a forge, general enhancement :) Didn't put as many trees, as it didn't really fit Karthwasten very well..

Ivarstead - Done: Looks way better now, new guard towers and guards, tonnes of trees, shrubs, rocks, new bridge, More BlackSmithing tools, including workbench, anvil, grindstone (No forge as of yet) extended the road, added new light sources, etc :D Next up, Dragons Bridge!

Shors Stone - General Enhancement for this tiny village :) Plus a new merchent coming soon... :D Lights are everywhere, as well as forests, shrubs, rocks etc. Also lots of ingrediants usefull for alchemists! Looks much better :)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Issues:
Some bugs have been found :[ Incompatability with More village Animals (But don't worry, I've added quite a few myself :D) Incompatabilities with Mods that extend villages such as Ivarstead Expanded (Causes CTD) For the most part, you're fine, and the different mods just merge the Cells together. FPS drops of 1-5 Fps are expected, depending on you're PC specifications, due to the increased number of items in rendered cells. I had a maximum drop of 4 Fps in Rorikstead with a Phenom II X4 965 and 560ti. Recommended Mods: I recommend the Sexy Towns mod (Seen in the pic) for best results with mine, any lighting mod (Im using the RNB Pure Mod) or foliage mod will greatly benefit too. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH LANTERNS MOD! As I have added many myself. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please comment, rate and favourite! :) And report any bugs found in the comment section below! I read every post :D On the Nexus too: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=17406 ============================================================ NOTICE: This mod is being deleted soon, I will be slowly replacing "Whiterun Exterior Enhanced" and "TAVE Villages" The reason for this is various errors and crashes both mods are causing. They will be replaced with much more game friendly versions, that should keep the same style, and apply more advanced modding techniques. Look out for them soon.

@Oliverlcy That's pretty much what me and my squirrel ascociates did. Except they came up with the idea, I just provided the coffee.

lol, when I look at most of these images I imagine a corporation meeting with some guy pitching this idea and he's like: "We'll add a bunch of fuckin' trees in there and call it... 'ENHANCED'..."
