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Please note: Though Detailed Cities was not originally made with Dawnguard in mind, this should have no effect on the compatibility with the mod to the game, most compatibility / errors are due to other mods not being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.

- Cutting block at the Skyforge
- Some objects not seated correctly.

= To Do List =

- Make compatible with Open Cities. (Trees already show up in Whiterun)

@ Boyboy5 - .... that's kind of the point.
@ Coollaireofdanksora - Not a fetish, i simply don't like being handy capped by consoles for a PC release, this mod was tested by over 10 different pc's if you suffer from poor frame rates from this simple mod using already preloaded assets for a game released on 11/11/11..... forget it.

I'll never understand the fetish that is adding fooliage and calling it "enhanced". Personally i like having 60fps and smooth gameplay.

Changes are too minimal, barely noticable.

@ Dex - absolutely. Just give me a bit to get the game up and running again. I should have it working again this weekend.

@ Chomps123 - Sure i am working on a complete mod called "Detailed Unlimited" if you would like to test it?

Very good mod :steamhappy:
Chomps123 Nov 16, 2017 @ 8:28am 
I can test for you if you want.

@ Chomps123 - I would love too, but Open Cities is compatable with DLC's i don't own so i can't test it with them.
