STEP 8 - LANDSCAPE OVERHAUL

Enhanced Landscapes (optional)

Download and install the main file.


FOMOD instructions:

Mod order:
Place below the EARLY LOADER separator.


Notes:
Since EL touches numerous places in Skyrim, there is the risk of some overlaps. For instance, the pier at Heartwood Mill in the Rift, clips with the pier placed by CFTO. These conflicts need to be fixed in the Creation Kit where one of the objects needs to be disabled or placed differently. Because I personally lack the skills to do so, there are no patches currently and the mod is optional.
Hopefully in the future I’ll find the time to finally learn my way around the CK and create patches for Enhanced Landscapes – or somebody else takes care of it. Either way, you have been warned.
