This mod adds an area of farms and cultivated land around the city of chorrol. It includes two farms, several watchtowers, and a working mill, as well as some farm animals.

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.

Chorrol Hinterland is not compatible with Better Cities v6+. Thanks to MHahn123, we now have an alternate version of Chorrol Hinterland which is compatible, and can only be used with Better Cities.


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


Unpack the archive to the ...\Oblivion\Data folder.

It contains the following directories:
* meshes
* sound
* textures
together with the "xulChorrolHinterland.esp" and this readme.

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


Open the archive again and delete all files within the ...\Oblivion\Data folder which are contained in the archive.


I would like to thank Sarkander and the people at Farmers Unite for the use of their farm animals and the waterwheel.
Thanks also to Texian for the use of his animated river meshes.
Finally a thank you to cthulhu314, yzerman and all the people on the unique landscape project for their help and support over the last year.
