About this mod

A mod for a mod enhancing your experience with the criminally overlooked Zion Trail by Hwiccian! Adds music, foliage, ambience, and much, much more!

Permissions and credits
Initially starting with my mod to add music to the worldspace of Hwiccian's Zion Trail, it has now evolved into a light overhaul enhancing many aspects I felt could be added to!

This mod makes a number of changes all directed towards filling-out some of the more "empty" feeling aspects of the otherwise mastercrafted mod. While my initial idea was to add music, I have expanded it to the point that I feel justified releasing this as a whole new mod rather than just updating my original "Music for Zion Trail" mod, which I may set to hidden soon.

With this mod you can expect
-Music in several locations and setpieces of course, with more than the original "Music for Zion Trail" mod.
-A LOT of new handplaced bits of vegetation and rocks to flesh out the rather empty roadsides. This added flora makes the experience of moving through the map much better.
-A few more handplaced wildlife encounters to spice up some empty ares, none too crazy.
-Experimental use of the ambient noise concepts found in TheKetzku's ATMOS Ambient Sound Overhaul, including metal creaking, flourescent lights, bangs and echos, etc. This ambient noise mod looks very promising and I hope to see it come to New Vegas!

Just install and allow this mod's edited ZionTrail-NV.esp to overwrite the original Zion Trail version. If you already have vurt's WFO either allow this mod to overwrite it or not, either way you should have the assets you need.

This requires the original Zion Trail obviously, just install this one over the OG.

Please use with the Honest Hearts Trees and Plants Replacer located under Wasteland Flora Overhaul!

If you think that this looks TOO lush for fallout please consider that in the screenshots I am also running Vurt's Wasteland in Bloom, which has a big effect. If you do not use that mod the grass will not be as prominent.
