This Unique Landscapes mod edits the boring area around Roland Jenseric's hut. It changes the sparse landscape to a wide-ranging farming area.
Surrounded by high hedges, sheep and horses are grazing on green meadows and chicken cavort on the courtyard. Above this scenery, the wings of a wind mill slowly turn, while the people do their daily work on the fields, in the barn, in the garden and on the meadows.

Unique Landscapes (short: UL) is based on the vision of a diversified and beautiful Cyrodiil. Imagine a world where exploring not only means to find new enemies and treasures but to enjoy gorgeous landscapes, a world where every step could lead to a new and unique visual experience. That is the Cyrodiil UL is working on.

To achieve a goal that huge, the UL project consists of multiple single mods. Each mod modifies a part of Cyrodiil, following a single theme. Usually UL mods get developed completely independently from each other. This way each modder has a maximum of freedom to work on his or her vision, so every UL mod gets its own style and contributes to the diversification of Cyrodiil.

Important Notes

All gates of Rolling Hills are driven by scripts; a few seconds after activating them they close by themselves. The barn cannot be entered by the player. And the chicken don't have ingredients, thus you can leave them alive ;).
You should avoid walking through the wheat fields, because this can result in a major performance hit... If you can't live with this, there also is a wheat-less version in a separate .esp.

It is important to use version 1.3 or higher of Rolling Hills if you want to also use the UL mod Arrius Creek, which at the release date of Rolling Hills 1.3 was still work-in-progress. Previous versions of Rolling Hills will be incompatible with Arrius Creek!

Compatibility Information

Please visit the Unique Landscapes Compatibility Patches page for a list of known and patched conflicts.

All UL mods are compatible with each other. However, there is one issue arising from the limitations of the game's graphic engine: Landscape LOD may overlap for different mods.
To make the landscape look the same in the distance as it does up close, you need to download two tools. Use the Landscape LOD Generator TES4LL to create distant ground, and use TES4LODGen to create distant objects. These tools create entirely different things so there is no conflict between them, and both should be run after you have sorted your load order using BOSS. The results will be unique to your personal game, not a generic combination of only the most popular mods.
