This is a compilation of the Unique Landscapes mods, which change many outdoor locations, making them more diverse and interesting.
It includes all Unique Landscapes packages available as of 11/10/2016.
Features a dynamic installation process that lets you choose which individual Unique Landscapes to enable.

Recommended to install using Wrye Bash, Nexus Mod Manager or TES Mod Manager, as the install scripts help you to make the right selections.


----------------------------
!!!IMPORTANT!!! - If you're upgrading from a previous version, deactivate the old version first.
----------------------------
!!!VERY IMPORTANT!!!
*New in v2, all the resource files have been combined into a single BSA file, which will be installed automatically along with a dummy ESP to activate the BSA in-game. Anyone who chooses to extract the BSA can safely disable the dummy ESP, otherwise it is required for the BSA to work.
*New in v2, there are two versions of a merged ESP containing all the Unique Landscapes. This is the first time a merged ESP has been officially released, so these are considered experimental, but should work perfectly.
Be warned that any compatibility patch or any other mod which has a Unique Landscapes ESP as its master will NOT work with these merged ESPs. Not even changing the Master to the merged ESP is likely to work as the merging has altered Form IDs.
Any compatibility patch or other mod which depends on a Unique Landscape but does not have one as its master will continue to work fine.
In folder "95 Full Merge - Better Cities Version": Unique Landscapes.esp - this file lacks any content from Chorrol Hinterland, allowing you to install the Better Cities version of Chorrol Hinterland separately. This is because UL "Chorrol Hinterland BC" needs to load after BC, while the other ULs all need to load before.
In folder "95 Full Merge - Standard Version": Unique Landscapes.esp - this file is the same as above but also includes Chorrol Hinterland Standard Version.
Both the merged files include the Ancient Yews/Arrius Creek linking patch, and will replace the dummy ESP which activates the BSA.
