About this mod

This mod is an overhaul of Vos and Tel Vos, the land surrounding them, the two nearby egg mines, covering a large portion of the northern Grazelands. Currently, the mod does not cover the entire Grazelands region, but additional work is planned in future updates. The mod includes 16+ new quests with approximately 18,000 words of dialogue.

Currently, OAAB Grazelands focuses on the Tower of Tel Vos and the Village of Vos along with the surrounding area and dungeons; covering a large part of the northern Grazelands region. In addition to being a visual overhaul, this mod adds many new quests, dialogue, and scripted events. This mod was built on months of research into what a logical expansion of Vos would consist of within the context of the original game as well as themes for new quests and dialogue. Many of the new quests focus on Telvanni characters, but there is plenty to do for other players as well.

Future updates will expand the area covered by this mod to the rest of the Grazelands region. The mod also includes a patched version of Remiros' Groundcover mod which fixes a few placement issues (including around campfires) and puts the grass on the new landscape meshes added by this mod.

Includes a compatibility patch for Remiros' Groundcover which is HIGHLY recommended to be used with this mod. A second patch covers the Remiros' Groundcover and Trackless Grazelands patch by RandomPal. Other grass mods are not directly supported.

If you use Old Vos Tradepost, install the patch included with this mod over the original plugin.

Majority of features in this mod are OpenMW compatible. There are a few known issues:
  • OpenMW does not support one-way collision so the PassWall enchantments may not work as intended. Players will need to disable collision temporarily to get through these.
  • The animation for the Eerie Lantern quest does not work properly in OpenMW - but the quest will complete properly.

This mod is a complete replacement of my Tower of Vos mod. They should not be used together.

This mod now includes my Girith's Guar Hides mod. They should not be used together.

This mod is not currently compatible with Red Vos due to issues with the old patch.

This mod is not currently compatible with Less Generic Nerevarine (LGN edits the criteria for the Zainab Ebony quest in a way which conflicts with this mod).

This mod is currently not compatible with Pegas Horse Ranch (which makes extensive landscape changes near Tel Vos). No patch is planned for now.

Due to the extensive changes in this mod, it may be incompatible with other mods which alter the area.
