New/Updated mod NOTES (only the main changes, minor notes are too many to be listed):

  • Skyrim HD - 2K Textures -DETAILED INSTALLATION- (NOTE: I strongly recommend use "Alternate Mountains" addon, looks much better even if older. Overwrite when prompted)

  • Better Landscape Textures -DETAILED INSTALLATION- (NOTE: Install AFTER "Skyrim HD", overwrite)
  • Realistic Water Textures -DETAILED INSTALLATION- (NOTE: I recommend to also use "Ocean and River Textures" and "Reduced Object Splashing" addons. NOTE2: Install AFTER "Skyrim HD", overwrite)
  • Spamheinzs HD Houses -DETAILED INSTALLATION- (NOTE: I recommend to use the older v1.1 version, not the new 1.5 or 1.6. NOTE2: Install AFTER "HQ Towns and Villages", overwrite)
  • Vurts Flora Overhaul -DETAILED INSTALLATION- (NOTE: Install AFTER "Skyrim HD" and "Chris2012s Whiterun HQTP", overwrite)
