Detailed Cities

Detailed Cities is a graphical enhancement modification for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Detailed Cities adds more than 1000 extra assets or modifications to the cities of Skyrim, giving each city a more vibrant feel. Detailed Cities primarily uses assets already in the scene to have as little effect on load times and performance as possible while still providing a substantial increase to believability.

Please note: Though Detailed Cities was not originally made with Dawnguard in mind, this should have no effect on the compatibility with the mod to the game, most compatibility / errors are due to other mods not being compatible with Detailed Cities or vice versa. To troubleshoot this try changing the order in which the mods load.

There might be a bug that makes a certain type of bush look blue and blocky. It's all over the game so idk if its because of this but the placements are the same. To be honest I don't know how to post a screenshot sorry.
