The Seasons of Skyrim Project provides two different and standalone landscape overhauls for skyrim. One is the "summer edition", which turns all of skyrim into summer and one is the "winter edition", which turns all of skyirm into winter.

This project was designed as lore-friendly and immersive as possible. Also it was made for best compatibility with other mods, so you can use most of your favorite modifications in combination with the summer or winter edition.

The current version 2.0 is now out of beta and a more stable and completed version for both overhauls. I will continue the work on both overhaul, but for the moment this will be the last big update for a unknown time. Maybe I will update the mod in january or february next year.






DESCRIPTION:

  • 1k landscape and grass textures
  • removed any snow and ice from the game
  • colorful aspen woods (a mix of green, red and orange aspen trees) ---> there is an optional file available now, where all aspen trees are green, if you don't want the colorful mix.
  • many new grasses
  • retextures of extisting grasses
  • fixed all snow roads, so their is no grass on the roads
  • retextured ice caves, so they look like normal caves
  • retextured icebergs and glaciers
  • removed icebergs and galciers, which are not needed anymore
  • added much more grass to the landscape
  • replaced and retextured snow plants to fit the summer theme
  • edited water colors
  • removed snow weather from the snow areas
  • removed snow fx (blowing snow)
  • fixed many places (which were before covered by snow and now by grass)
  • retextured and renamed most of the snow animals
  • regenerated LOD objects and LOD textures


optional textures pack:



  • brown mountains, rocks and glaciers texture
  • sandy coast texture
  • white nordic ruin retexture
  • LOD textures


INSTALLATION:

Download with Nexus Mod Manager or manually and install the mod with any mod manager of your choice: nexus mod manager, mod organizer (highly recommended) or wrye bash.

Version 2.0 comes as full FOMOD installation, so you can choose all optional files and plug-ins while installation! Use a mod manager to install!

LOAD ORDER:

  • 1. Main File -> Seasons of Skyrim Project.esp
  • 2. Main File -> SoSP Summer Edition.esp (requires 1. main file)
  • 3. OPTIONAL -> SoSP Summer Edition - CoT Patch.esp (patch for climates of tamriel)
  • 4. OPTIONAL -> SoSP Summer Edition - Dense Grass.esp (increases grass density for all vanilla and new grasses/flowers)


COMPATIBILITY / INCOMPATIBILITY:

  • The summer edition is fully compatible with Realistic Lighting Overhaul.
  • Compatible with Climates of Tamriel (please enable the patch while FOMOD installation!) -> This mod only works with the standard CoT mod and not with CoT winter!
  • Also compatible with ELFX, except with the enhancer plug-in.
  • It is not compatible with Pure Waters, W.A.T.E.R., since I had to edit the water, but it looks good in my optinion. If you really want to use one of this mods, simply load Pure Waters or W.A.T.E.R. after Skyrim Summer Overhaul.esp and it will work. The difference will be that the water will be dark again and not more bright as in the summer edition.
  • Not compatible with other landscape, grass and tree mods. Lush Trees is fully compatible, but it won't work with the grass files from Lush Trees and Grass, so make sure to delete the grass files and only leave the tree files before installing!
  • Compatible with mods like Forstfall & Wet and Cold (IMO it makes no sense to use them, since there is summer everywhere!)
  • Most texture mods should also work. You can use other snow and ice textures, but do not use any other landscape or grass retextures. Install SoSP Summer Edition after your other texture mod and let SoSP Summer Edition overwrite all files that are to override!
  • If you use a other mountain and rock texture for the normal summer edition, the retexturde galciers and icebergs will not be affected by that textures, so it may look strange.
