~LANGUAGE~
==========
The mod is made in English, other ones:
Chinese: http://goo.gl/xs0a99

~COMPATIBILITY~
===============
Skyrim version: Steam, 1.9.32.0.8
Creation Kit version: Steam, 1.9.32.0

This mod doesn't change any vanilla stuff, it should be compatible with all mods that are equal in scope. Note that I don't have ANY mods installed, so I really don't know wich ones are compatible or not.

Mods that shouldn't cause problems
----------------------------------
-Adding or changing UI
-Adding or changing locations
-Adding or changing textures
-Adding dialogues
-Adding quests
-Adding spells
-Adding all kinds of stuff

Mods that might cause problems
------------------------------
-Changing quests (for example companion specific)
-Changing actors (specially the lvl ones)
-Changing spells
-Changing meshes
-Changing names of objects
-Changing statics, misc or any other object in general

In sum, adding should not cause any compatibility issue, but changing might, so pay attention to changes. Not all types of changes are "bad", but adding is better than changing, changing stuff causes massive compatibility and stability problems.

Known problematic mods
----------------------
-UFO - Ultimate Follower Overhaul (causes CTD because it changes vanilla companion stuff)
-Dawnguard Vampire Lord reverse Transforming Face fix - Vanilla (if you are a Vampire Lord you will CTD when using the EarthquakeShout)

Load order
----------
Since this mod doesn't change anything vanilla I advise to load it first then other mods.

~TITLE~
======
BlackLand - A new (is)land to explore!

~SMALL DESCRIPTION~

V1.6

-10 to 20+ hours of new gameplay
-New (is)land
-New village
-New dungeons
-New quests
-New NPC's
-New spells
-Mini games
-Survival modes
-Secrets/Easter eggs

~LONG DESCRIPTION~
==================
Adds a new island called BlackLand with a new village, you will meet new NPC's that need your help to solve some of their problems.

You will find new unique dungeons in your adventures presenting new challenges.

New powerful unique spells and powers to use and discover.

Mini games with replay value to entertain you when you aren't exploring (if needed, see spoilers below).

Survival modes for the brave
----------------------------
-Destructible weapon: Your weapon will degrade with use
-Destructible armor (slow scrit): Your armor will degrade with use
-Destructible shield: Your shield will degrade with use
-Sleepy: Sleep depravation will cause bad effects
-Starving: Food depravation will cause bad effects

Hidden secrets/easter eggs to enrich your exploration (if needed, see spoilers below).

~INSTALLATION~
==============
Should be simple, use Nexus Mod Manager, or...

-First unzip
-Open the folder and copy the contents to your Skyrim Data folder (BlackLand.bsa and BlackLand.esp)
-Normally: C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonskyrimData
-Start the game, choose DATA FILES, check BlackLand
-Done!

If you enter an interior and you appear in "space" you might need to:
-Go to C:My DocumentsMy GamesSkyrim
-Search for file Skyrim.ini
-Open with notepad, under [General] add iLargeIntRefCount=999999

If you don't have grass please check this link: http://goo.gl/aZdhRa

If you have shout problems it seems installing the mod with NMM shrinks the size of your BlackLand.bsa, please check to see if it's +- 400 mb, if it's smaller than that ( < 200 mb) you should uninstall the mod with NMM and install it manually.

~TES5EDIT~
==========
When cleaning you may encounter a lot of items (825 last time I checked), this is what the creator of TES5Edit had to say about them:

"That's some special case handling for removing cells which were defined but are not actually used for anything. If you go to those forms manually you'll note that they're likely just cell records with nothing attached, or cell records with empty "Temporary" blocks on them.

It's harmless to let it remove those, though it'll probably get annoying since the CK will insist on resaving them - unlike the behavior in Oblivion."

So, no point removing them.

~PERFORMANCE~
=============
If you have performance issues and are using destructible survival modes, try to deactivate them, the slowest script is the destructible armor, start by it then deactivate the others if needed.

~MOTIVATION~
============
I love games, I love playing them and I love "making" them, this mod is an opportunity to show my skills and at the same time "work" in the industry, and maybe, who knows, work for real in this area?

Prior to this mod I only modded PES - Pro Evolution Soccer, I had no clue how to script or use CK, it has been a long road with lots of bumps, and I mean lots, but I've enjoyed all hours (3500+ CK, 390+ Skyrim) that I've spent editing this game (almost all of them anyways).

I hope you can enjoy it too :)
