[font=roboto]For a capital city, vanilla Solitude is underwhelming. Solitude Docks aren’t much better either.  Mods can fix this, but bringing them all together under one roof is no easy task. However, I’ve been busy, and finally have a version of the Capital I’m proud to share.  This is my vision of Solitude, and IMO it’s the best Solitude overhaul to date. It’s huge, it’s gorgeous and it Just Works TM.

I’ve overhauled the city using the best Solitude Mods I could find, and Enhanced Solitude uses the excellent Solitude Reborn as it’s base, an outstanding piece of work by CaptainSwoop, Brytag and Reindeer51, who deserve special credit. That mod alone has thousands of man hrs involved in its construction and adds an amazing amount of content. Just look at it’s description.


[/font][font=roboto]Combine that with all the other mods I’ve introduced and Enhanced Solitude comprises an insane amount of work, worthy of a DLC, but it’s here, free, for everyone! This is because it’s a community project. A modding community unlike any other, which is absolutely worth defending and fostering as It is this very community which made all of this possible. There’s a reason it’s the most modded game in existence. Let’s keep it that way![/font]

[font=roboto]Another major part of the mod is individual building re-textures for all of Solitude. The textures are selected to reflect the owners circumstances, the buildings age and its location. This adds real diversity to the city and feels unique. I have also made a vanilla version of this texture overhaul, which doesn’t require anything else except the vanilla game.

I have also made a patch for Solitude Expansion, arguably the best (and biggest) Solitude Docks overhaul to date. What my patch does is  move everything from Solitude Expansion city gates area, down and further out the city, near Katla’s farm etc. This means you can have the best of both worlds and experience Solitude like never before. A huge city, with huge docks to match. 

In addition I have made an optional mod called Enhanced Ships of Solitude. This mod places new ship models in and around Solitude docks. The mod also includes new UltraHD Ship Lods plus other updates to vanilla ship lods, which need DynDOLOD to work.

Finally, a note on versions. This mod is a hungry beast. On Classic, its sub 30FPS in some spots. It’s still perfectly playable though and whilst I have optimized this mod, it really shines in SSE. Therefore SSE will see the focus of this mod’s development. I’ll keep publishing both versions where possible.[/font]
