Towns and Villages Enhanced Lite: Whiterun

Towns and Villages Enhanced Lite is a new series focusing on bringing you the best Town and Villages Enhancements, at the best frame rates.


The first City in Towns and Villages Enhanced Lite, Whiterun.


Adds a variety of items to the city, including:

. Lore friendly flora (Tundra Shrubs, Tundra Driftwood trees, Plains Shrubs)
. Lore friendly alchemist plants (Cotton, thistle etc)
. Small amounts of clutter (To conserve performance in using Havok Physics engine)
. Light sources (At a low density to conserve performance - Compared to the normal TAVE)
. Seating - Benches, Chairs
. Low Poly Objects - Crates, boxes and barrels.

Experiance a detailed city, with maximum performance.



Q: I get a CTD with this mod enabled!?

A: All of my mods do not change any existing references in-game, it is unlikely they are the cause of a CTD.
Try placing the "TAVE??.esp" higher in your "Load Order" by using the arrows.
Also try using the Load order optimiser program - Boss -

Q: NPC's are walking into stuff?

A: Due to the current state of the Creation Kit's Nav mesh, I cannot directly edit it without making the mod
some what unstable, please send a pic of the item NPC's are colliding with and I'll move/remove it ASAP.

Q: Are you going to do....?

A: I hope that I'll eventually have every Town and Village Enhanced!

Q: Is this compatible with the original TAVE series?

A: Technically yes, but I wouldn't recommend using them together. Objects will Clip and your FPS will
Increase significantly.


Peformance Benefit over the original TAVE:
System Specs: GTX 560ti + Phenom II X4 965 + 8Gb DDR3 Ram

Original TAVE: 30 - 35 FPS
TAVE Lite: 50 - 60 FPS

(Frame rate increase dependant on PC Specifications)


For the screenshots I'm using the Sharpshooters Extreme Graphics ENB.

thank you for this! i dont like the other 2 Whiterun Enhanced mods by you because they are too cluttered, but this is perfect.

Think we could see the town enhancement mods come to the special edition on Xbox? That would be hype af

I actually prefer this to the original verson of the mod. The original Mod compeletly destoyed the original feeling of Whiterun that i had come to love by shoving a huge amount of tees and vegetations in the middle of a plains which made absolutly no sense at all.this version adds more life to Whiterun without makinging it Overbearing Like the Original Mod. I really hope to see a lite version for a lot of the other cities because you makes the same mistake with so many mods.

Yeah, this version looks nice, but the other version is just sort of TREEEEEEEEEEES

I love this version! I agree the full version made it look crazy busy, which didn't seem right for a Tundra town. I usually save loading this up until I've completed the Gildergleam mission for immersive wonder, the sight of a city going from slightly barren to blooming with new life when I return a few days later is really cool.

Much prefer this to the original, too many trees in the other.

I am experiencing a common and really annoying glitch where subscribing to the file doesn't send it to your skyrim folder, so do you have this on nexus?
