  1. The Fall of Granite Hill

    Granite Hill - Three Farms and an Inn, just North of the Falkreath. A Market is Held here Weekly. -- Survey of the Holdings of Jarl Gjalund
    Granite Hill is mentioned in a few places in lore and existed prior to the 4th Era. However nothing remained of it in Skyrim by 4E 201 except the dragon mound where Vuljotnaak was buried in ancient times. All well and good, but with no explanation for what may have happened to the place it felt like a good enough opportunity to tell my own version of events here. With this mod, the 3 farms and the inn are back, but instead of the weekly market, the town has a blacksmith. Of course, that would not be much of a fate, would it? Granite Hill's fate is sealed from the moment Alduin burned down Helgen. Surely the beast and his newly resurrected allies didn't stop there...
    Features:
    * A fully working town prior to Alduin's return. 3 farms, an inn, and a blacksmith. Plus town guard patrols from Falkreath Hold.
    * Upon Vuljotnaak's resurrection by Alduin, the village will be in flames. This will last as long as the dragon is alive.
    * Following the dragon's death, the fires will go out but the town now lies in ruins, swallowed by the World Eater.

  2. Open Cities Reborn

    Open Cities Reborn takes the concept of Open Cities and steps it up to the next level. The project redesigns each city covered by the original Open Cities in such a way that would make more sense strategically. The castles become a more central focus of each city's layout, with housing, commerce, and the cathedrals spread out around them in more distinct ways. When possible, concept art provided by Bethesda was followed as closely as space restrictions would allow. Where none was provided or where it was not practical to follow, creative license was used instead. City walls in several cities have been modified to suit the location. For example, Bruma now uses wooden palisades, Cheydinhal has lower brick walls that reflect Dunmer influence, and the city part of Bravil has no walls at all instead relying on their island nature. This has the added bonus that each city is now more visible as you approach. Rather than large imposing walls that block the entire view, you can see buildings on the other side along with most of the trees and bushes.
    To avoid any serious compatibility issues, and because lore calls for it to remain fortified, Kvatch is not touched in any way.
    The Imperial City will also remain in the layout it now has since strategically speaking, it's already built the way it should be. Although there is room in the concept art for some somewhat radical adjustments to be made. That may or may not come at a later time.
    To get the most out of these changes, it is highly recommended to download Animated Window Lighting System and Chimneys. This is the evolution of Texian's Window Lighting System and is fully compatible with Open Cities Reborn.
    To go with that, and provide LOD for all the new goodies, I also recommend: Really AEVWD. Just be aware that there's a bit of a performance hit in activating all the extra LOD that Open Cities will provide that's directly proportional to the power of your PC, and how many other mods you have installed.

  4. Cutting Room Floor

    From the depths of the ether, or just the cutting room floor, comes forth several NPCs, some quests, and other miscellaneous content which was created but never implemented in the game. If ever you had the feeling that Skyrim was missing something, you were probably right! This mod should relieve a bit of that. Villages that were supposed to exist have been brought back. Quests that were partially implemented have been completed. Various items have been restored that were still in the data files. NPCs have been brought back to the game and given homes where appropriate. Plus plenty of other random bits of stuff that was mentioned in the game but didn't exist yet.
    NPCs were implemented using the list available on the UESP: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unused_NPCs
    Unimplemented quests were seeded by the following list on UESP: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unfinished_Quests

  6. Rorikstead

    "A Small Farmstead in the Western Plains. Grain, Leather, Horses." - Holdings of Jarl Gjalund.
    Rorikstead is a farming village on the northwest end of Whiterun Hold. It has a rich history with a mention in an ancient book accounting for the property once owned by Jarl Gjaland, and a ballad is sung about the death of Ragnar the Red taking place there. Yet when you see the place in person it's a sad shadow of all of that history.
    This mod aims to bring at least some of that back by expanding the village with more NPCs, houses to put them in, and additional farming for them to do. The town also now has a blacksmith to fulfill the complete picture.
    * Extra guard patrols and guard dogs added to help fend off wildlife and other threats.
    * Two of the new NPCs can be married if you help them with their crops and you can live in their houses with them if you so choose.
    * Lokir's abandoned house is included and can be claimed as a new home if you wish.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * Blacksmith allows investing in his shop with the appropriate Speech perk.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

  8. Provincial Courier Service

    Skyrim's courier is an industrious young lad who can be seen all over the province, yet doesn't seem to have anywhere to live and/or work. He seems able to find you at will, but what if you wanted to find HIM? Even if it would be a meaningless encounter, one should still expect a living breathing NPC that takes part in the world to have some place to work at and call home. No longer will the poor courier simply be dragged from his mystery cell and dropped in front of you to make his deliveries. Thus is born the Provincial Courier Service.
    This mod is a simple immersion/realism mod that provides a small shack outside of Whiterun along the main road, next to Honningbrew Meadery.
    What This Mod Does
    * Provides a home for Skyrim's default courier NPC who hands out letters for various quests.
    * Courier deliveries will now occur in person nearly anywhere in Skyrim.
    * Optional home delivery service will instead deliver messages to one vanilla or DLC house that you own.
    * Can also approach the courier at his office and receive mail deliveries there.
    Speak to the courier to set up your options. Until this is done, the courier will seek you out to deliver messages in person.

  9. Ars Metallica - Smithing Enhancement

    A simple mod to expand on the crafting system in Skyrim.
    The crafting system is one of Skyrim's better features, but for thieves and archers, there's not much use for the system. Light armor is dead easy to come by in already finished forms, but arrows can sometimes be scarce in the types you may want. Lockpicks have been known to be somewhat scarce too, yet are relatively basic to construct.
    Ars Metallica aims to fill in some of the basic issues I had with the crafting system by doing the following:
    For vanilla Skyrim:
    * Allow archers to forge their own arrows out of the various ore materials, wood, leather strips, and feathers. Indirectly making it somewhat useful to chop wood too.
    * Allow thieves to make their own lockpicks out of iron or steel. This doesn't mean you have to be a member of the Thieves Guild.
    * Provide skill advancement for the use of the smelter to melt down ore. After all, that's as important as knowing how to shape it once refined.
    * Provide skill advancement for the use of the tanning rack to make leather. That's far more important in my mind than the skill advances from using the leather to make stuff.
    * Provide for a small amount of skill advancement from mining the ore itself out of ore veins.
    * Provide the ability to melt down existing pieces of armor and some clutter items into ingots so that you can then use those ingots to make missing pieces of a set if you want.
    * Allow members of factions to forge equipment appropriate to their guild. Thieves can make guild armor. Assassins can make Brotherhood armor. Legionnaires can make Imperial armor, and so on.
    For Dawnguard:
    * Modifies the dragonbone arrow recipes and the crossbow bolt recipes to conform to the same formulas as vanilla. Disabled Dawnguard's native recipes.
    For Hearthfire:
    * Provides smithing experience for using the various workbenches used to construct your homes. The drafting table does not count since nothing is actually built using it.
    For Dragonborn:
    * Modifies the stalhrim and nordic arrow recipes to conform to the same formulas as the vanilla arrows.
    * Adds smelting formulas to recover ore from stalhrim and nordic carved equipment.
    * Adds crafting feathers to the Felsaad Tern.
    Note that all smelting of metals requires that you know the perk associated with that metal. For example, if you wish to smelt Dwemer scrap, you need to know the Dwemer Smithing perk first. This applies not just to smelting existing goods but also to smelting raw ore. This isn't a bug, it's a feature.

  10. Falkreath

    A minor expansion for the city of Falkreath. Provides additional housing for 2 NPCs.
    Like so many other towns in Skyrim, NPCs have been doubled up in housing or simply not given any at all and occupy space at the inn forever. Falkreath is already fairly large and space is limited, but there was enough available to provide homes for Kust and Valdr in a part of the city that wasn't occupied by anything other than trees.

  12. Point The Way

    Ever travel the roads and wonder how it is people find their way? Have you noticed that the roads in many places simply don't have signs that tell you where you can go while traveling them? If you were a foreign visitor to Skyrim, you've got no hope of being able to travel the intricate road network without stopping to read your map every so often, even when you're at a major intersection. Worry no more! While you weren't looking, The Empire sent out its trusty civil engineers (surely Skyrim has some) and they set about marking the roads to better assist travelers in finding their way.
    This mod's aim is fairly simple. Road signs have been placed at several major intersections that were either lacking signs, or didn't have enough signs to indicate the full extent of where you could travel on a road. In some cases, the smaller towns and villages aren't even mentioned - despite Bethesda having created signs for them! Others that were pointed the wrong way or had the wrong city being represented have been fixed as well.

  13. Telengard

    A hunting and fishing village on an island in the Sea of Ghosts.
    Nords have always been spoken of as hearty and tolerant of the cold, but Skyrim has few instances where this is demonstrated. Plus there is a lot of implication that many spend a lot of time at sea hunting horkers and fishing but no reflection of this exists anywhere except one hut in the Skaal Village. This mod aims to change that a bit by offering an entire settlement dedicated to the task of hunting horkers, fishing, and raising goats and cattle for meat. There's plenty of meat and fish available for the taking on the island and now someone is there doing just that!
    I also wanted to do something with the Skaal Village tileset and figured this would be a good opportunity to make use of it and some of their clothing. No, these Nords are not an offshoot of the Skaal, but they do share architecture and some clothing in common.
    Old school (and I mean old) may recognize the name of the mod as an old Commodore 64 game by Avalon Hill (circa 1983). This mod serves as a bit of an homage to the game that first got me hooked on RPGs and on the idea of modding them as well. The village's name isn't the only Easter Egg you'll find either
    Features include:
    * Custom inn layout using Skaal Village architecture.
    * NPCs with complete schedules.
    * Military control changes based on who controls Winterhold.
    * All houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

  14. Helarchen Creek

    A village in the mountains southeast of the city of Dawnstar.
    Tamriel has had many villages on maps for as far back as anyone can remember. What happened to them all? Nobody really knows. This mod is simply my take on bringing one back from Elder Scrolls: Arena. Helarchen Creek was a small village in the game somewhere in the mountains near Dawnstar. Originally it appears as though Bethesda planned to put this around the Nightgate Inn, but then changed the name on that and cut the content. Some further research using old Arena maps placed the village further north anyway, so here it is.
    * Two of the NPCs can be married and will optionally share their homes with you.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

  15. Wasteland Travel Caravans

    This mod adds a network of travel caravans to the wasteland to connect the major settlements. The normal fast travel system is still available, however this mod caters to those who prefer to make their trips between major areas slightly more immersive. Travel service is relatively cheap, and the caravans are well protected. Each operator is in or near the main area of the settlement they serve and has one pack brahmin and one normal brahmin. So they should be easy enough to find.
    The system behaves more or less the same way the Stilt Sriders in Morrowind did. You pay the operator and they take you to the destination you specify. No operator serves all destinations, so you will need to know which stops you need to make in between on the way to where you're going. Time will pass as though you used fast travel and should be fairly close to the actual game time fast travel would have used up.

  16. Alternative Beginnings

    Tossed in jail for waylaying a royal caravan on the highway, your trial was mere days away. Something is wrong though, the days have turned to weeks, and the weeks to months. You no longer have any idea how long you've been down here. The guards stopped checking your cell almost a week ago, and now the last of your food is running out. Your cellmate died months ago and they never removed the body. It won't be long before your bones decorate the cell as well. The Gods have forsaken you! Or have they....
     
    Alternative Beginnings puts you in the position of the poor forgotten prisoner lamenting life's choices. You will be able to choose from several different options on how to begin the game, all from the discomfort of your dank prison cell. Your choices influence the circumstances by which the game begins, and hopefully the Gods won't forsake you this time around!

  18. Dawnstar

    Dawnstar has always been described as a large port city with a lot of activity. What was presented in the game didn't quite do it justice, but until recently putting one's finger on why wasn't so easy. As it turns out, Dawnstar was run by cruel heartless nobles! The miners were condemned to live out their lives neck deep in grime in the mines. Well no more! Now these poor miners have homes like everyone else, and in the process Dawnstar feels more like that larger port city we've been told about too. With six extra homes in it, that shouldn't be much of a surprise. Plus the miners will now go home to sleep, and visit the inn after their shifts are up too. So there will be some of that missing activity now too.
    * Each NPC now has their own home.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees, that account for the changes.

  19. Dragon Bridge

    A small village expansion for Dragon Bridge.
    Dragon Bridge always seemed like it needed something more, and it did. There was always poor Varnius Junius, who gets sent to Solitude representing the town and everything, but had nowhere to live. Plus his boss, Tasius Tragus, who was never placed into the game, but would also have just lived in the inn. The inn is not a home!
    Varnius and Tasius now have their own homes on the northeast side of the village, like everyone else in town. It's not much, but there just isn't enough space in the place for anything more. Tasius even has a nice terrace with a view to reflect his presumed status in town.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  20. Karthwasten

    A simple village expansion for Karthwasten.
    Karthwasten is supposed to be a bustling mining town with two actively worked mines, yet only has a couple of buildings and too many NPCs to match. Plus it's a known lore town that's been here for at least 200 years. So this place needed a bit of an expansion to flesh it out and make it seem more like the "Karthwasten Hall" of old, in as much as Skyrim will allow for that. No more pitifully small center of mining for The Reach!
    * Each NPC now has their own home.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  21. Soljund's Sinkhole

    A simple village expansion for Soljund's Sinkhole.
    Soljund's Sinkhole is another one of those places where it just seemed odd that more was not done. A mining operation that by all accounts would be thriving were it not for a draugr problem. An area that 3 people are effectively living in, with only two actually being housed, and one of whom is a marriage prospect for the player! Such cramped conditions cannot stand, and so this small expansion has been done to relieve the crowding problem.
    * Guard barracks for the guards to live in, with one extra patroller added due to the dangerous area. The jail is just for show, sorry
    * Perth can now share his house with you if you marry him.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  22. Whistling Mine

    A simple village expansion for Whistling Mine.
    It always seemed odd to me that an established mine with an active smelter had no place for the people there to live. Whistling Mine is cold, and inhospitable. Nobody in their right mind would actually sleep there! This mod solves that oddity by providing a small village for the 4 NPCs to live in and spend some time in. Cause who wants to spend their lives living in the mine they work in!
    It was also somewhat strange that Winterhold Hold had nothing but a single half ruined town in it.

  23. Shor's Stone

    An expansion for the village of Shor's Stone.
    Shor's Stone always seemed like a place that had more potential than what was in the game, and as it turns out, that's because it does. NPCs talk about Odfel's wrecked house and the need to build a new one, but the wreckage doesn't exist. Grelka has some scenes with the other NPCs that can never play because she never comes to the town, and may well have originally been planned for there. Plus the place always seemed a bit empty, in need of somewhere for the folks to gather at night other than just the fireplace in front of Sylgja's house. Now, all of these things have been taken care of. Shor's Stone is no longer a backwater half-village.
    * Grelka now has a home at the south end of town. She will travel between there and Riften by horse at the appropriate times.
    * The Tapped Vein, the inn, where folks gather for the town's evening meal. A subtle tribute to Elder Scrolls Online and the village's past association with Ebony mining.
    * Inn has a properly working innkeeper, server, and bard.
    * Odfel's wrecked house now exists on the north side of town. So sad.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.

  24. Ivarstead

    A simple village expansion for Ivarstead.
    Ivarstead always seemed like it should be more to me. There are a number of people living in the inn on a permanent basis. While the game indicates it is a village in decline due to fewer and fewer visitors coming through, it's very clear that those who are in the inn now are permanent residents to the village who have fairly strong ties they can't just cut. Since it would have been lame to throw down a bunch of empty or destroyed properties, it felt only right that 3 new houses should be built for those residents to occupy.
    * Temba Wide-Arm will offer to share her house if married to you.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
    * Bonus: Golldir now has a home as well and will return to it once his quest, "Ancestral Worship", is completed. He can be married at that point and you can move in with him if you wish.

  25. Darkwater Crossing

    A simple village expansion for Darkwater Crossing.
    If Darkwater Crossing ever seemed like too many people with nowhere to live were there, you're probably right. It's major enough for Tullius to know about it to set up an ambush for Ulfric, yet there's a single house there where two people live while everyone else sits around a campfire. Not anymore! Three new houses have been added to provide accommodations for the 4 NPCs who had no place to call home.
    * Sondas Drenim will offer to share his house if married to you.
    * Derkeethus will offer to share his house if married to you, assuming you haven't recruited him into the Blades.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
