Description
===========

This plugin adds a dense Redwood Forest to the Great Forest, south-east of Chorrol. Additionally there are Kodiak Bears who inhabit the area featuring advanced AI. There are even families of Kodiaks. You'll see an adult Kodiak protectively accompanying its cub or cubs. You can chase the cubs and they will play around, while the parents will keep a watchful eye on them, making sure they don't wander too far! The Kodiaks are all harmless to you, unless of course you attack them. The Kodiaks have a sleep schedule too. They'll find a suitable spot, and they'll sleep soundly unless you or an enemy is nearby. In fact, we've included snoring sounds when the Kodiaks sleep too! They will awake if you come to close, but if you're quiet enough, you'll be able to sneak around them without waking them from their sleep. They also have a keen interest in berries which you'll see the Kodiaks eating occasionally. A Kodiak Den is provided, with a Kodiak family nearby. You can even use the den as a home if you'd like. It features a soft mossy interior with a log that you can sit on, as well as sittable rocks along with a sleeping area. So you can nap on the soft moss!

Unique Landscapes (short: UL) is based on the vision of a diversified and beautiful Cyrodiil. Imagine a world where exploring not only means to find new enemies and treasures but to enjoy gorgeous landscapes, a world where every step could lead to a new and unique visual experience. That is the Cyrodiil UL is working on.

To achieve a goal that huge, the UL project consists of multiple single mods. Each mod modifies a part of Cyrodiil, following a single theme. Usually UL mods get developed completely independently from each other. This way each modder has a maximum of freedom to work on his or her vision, so every UL mod gets its own style and contributes to the diversification of Cyrodiil.

Compatibility Information
=========================

Please visit the Unique Landscapes Compatibility Patches page for a list of known and patched conflicts.

All UL mods are compatible with each other. However, there is one issue arising from the limitations of the game's graphic engine: Landscape LOD may overlap for different mods.
To make the landscape look the same in the distance as it does up close, you need to download two tools. Use the Landscape LOD Generator TES4LL to create distant ground, and use TES4LODGen to create distant objects. These tools create entirely different things so there is no conflict between them, and both should be run after you have sorted your load order using BOSS. The results will be unique to your personal game, not a generic combination of only the most popular mods.


=============
Prerequisites
=============

At least the official Oblivion patch v1.1 should be installed, otherwise most probably the game will crash from time to time.


============
Installation
============

Unpack the archive to the ...\Oblivion\Data folder, it contains:
- This readme
- The .esp file
Folders:
- meshes
- textures

Start the Oblivion launcher, select "Data Files" and activate the .esp. Alternatively activate in OBMM.


==============
Deinstallation
==============

Delete this readme and the .esp file. Also all related data in the included directories should be removed. To do this, unpack the archive again to a temporary directory and compare, which files you should delete.
