About this mod

A series of patch files to repair conflicts between Trails of Cyrodiil
and Unique Landscapes mods.

Requirements
Permissions and credits

NOW OBSOLETE!! I am no longer supporting this patch series. I have received permission from Trails Of Cyrodiil author to revamp them and am actively working on TRAILS OF CYRODIIL COMPLETE. Many of these patches will no longer be necessary due to planned re-routing in key areas. That aside, none of them were ever updated to be in sync with UL v2.0, so probably won't function correctly in their currrent state anyway.








Trails Of Cyrodiil Patch Collection



A series of patch files to repair conflicts between Trails of Cyrodiil and
Unique Landscapes mods. The patches contained herein will address all
conflicts that were not covered by Chaky & Vorians' original patches. 


Details
========


This project started as a request on the UL Patch Thread to fix conflicts 
between Trails of Cyrodiil and Unique Landscapes-The Eastern Peaks.
However, as is often the case, there was quite a bit more behind the
curtain than just a single conflict.

While researching the initial request, it turned out Eastern Peaks conflicted
with both the East and Southeast trails. I also found two recently added trail 
plugins had unpatched UL conflicts. The Colovian Highlands route conflicts 
with both Brena River Ravine and Cloudtop Mountains. The Northern Shortcut 
route has a very minor conflict with Snowdale.

And there is yet another recent addition, Trails of Cyrodiil Merged, which
provides a single merged plugin containing all of the previously separate
trails files. In fact there are two versions of this in the same package.
Some patches needed to be created for both of these, and the previously
existing patches needed revising so they would work with both as well.

A word of caution when using two of the trails plugins. "Trails of Cyrodiil
Colovian Highlands UL" and "Trails of Cyrodiil Merged UL Colovian Highlands"
both have Unique Landscapes Colovian Highlands fully merged into them.
When using either of these plugins you DO NOT NEED "xulColovianHighlands.esp" 
activated. You only need the meshes and textures from UL Colovian Highlands 
installed.  


What's Included?
=================== 


A barrel full of patch files! 30 of them to be precise. Every known conflict
between Trails of Cyrodiil and Unique Landscapes has now been addressed.

You will find 3 main download options. Each corresponds to a specific version of
Trails of Cyrodiil. Read-me files are included with each download option that will
explain what each patch does and how to set load order.


Trails of Cyrodiil Standard
 ---------------------------------

Patches for the original individual trail files. This folder contains patches
for the two newer trails plugins, and for Eastern Peaks, all of which were
released well after the original patches were created by Chaky & Vorians. 
Note that Trails of Cyrodiil Colovian Highlands has two separate versions. 
One for a vanilla game, and one with UL Colovian Highlands built in. Be
sure to ONLY use the patch which matches the trail version you have installed. 
Patches Included: 

1. Trail East-Eastern Peaks 
2. Trail SouthEast-Eastern Peaks
3. Trail East+Southeast-Eastern Peaks
4. Trails of Cyrodiil Northern Shortcut-Snowdale 
5. Trails of Cyrodiil Colovian Highland Vanilla-Brena River
6. Trails of Cyrodiil Colovian Highland UL-Brena River
7. Trails of Cyrodiil Colovian Highland Vanilla-Cloudtop Mountains
8. Trails of Cyrodiil Colovian Highland UL-Cloudtop Mountains


Trails of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla       
-----------------------------------------

Patches for the Vanilla version of Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged. This is the
version to use if you DO NOT have UL Colovian Highlands installed. These
were not simple "update the master" conversions. Each has been tweaked
and fixed in some way to work properly. Please note there is no patch for
Skingrad Outskirts. This is because Chaky's original patch has no master
dependency and needed no fixing. Chaky's Skingrad Outskirts patch can be
used with either version of Trails of Cyrodiil Merged and has been included
in the Master Patch for both versions.

1. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Bravil Barrowfields
2. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Brena River Ravine
3. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Cheydinhal Falls          
4. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Chorrol Hinterlands
5. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Cloudtop Mountains
6. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Eastern Peaks
7. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Fallenleaf Everglade
8. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Panther River
9. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-River Ethe
10. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-Snowdale
11. Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla-UL Master


Trails of Cyrodiil Merged Colovian Highlands
---------------------------------------------------------

Patches for the Colovian Highlands version of Trails Of Cyrodiil Merged. This is
the version to use if you DO HAVE UL Colovian Highlands installed. Contains all
of the same patches listed above, but re-mastered to work with the Colovian
Highlands version of TOC. Again no patch for Skingrad Outskirts for the same 
reason mentioned above. And to reiterate, if you use this version you DO NOT
need the .esp from Unique Landscapes Colovian Highlands, only the resources.  


Trails of Cyrodiil Better Cities Compatible
-------------------------------------------------------

Replacer esps for 4 of the Trails of Cyrodiil plugins. Makes Trails of Cyrodiil
compatible with Better Cities 6.0 or later by re-routing some trail portions
near Cheydinhal and Skingrad. Plugins affected are Trail EAST, Trail WEST,
Trails of Cyrodiil Merged Vanilla, Trails of Cyrodiil Merged Colovian Highlands.
Refer to the included read-me for a more detailed explanation.

As an added bonus, the trail changes found in these plugins also make Trails of
Cyrodiil compatible with UL Cheydinhal Falls and UL Skingrad Outskirts without
the need for patch files. They can be used whether or not you have Better Cities
installed.

So if you don't mind the route changes, these can be used instead of
the original files to eliminate patches previously needed for Cheydinhal Falls
and Skingrad Outskirts. The downside is that trailhead locations are slightly
further away from the respective city gates than they were before. Small price
to pay for less compatibility patches in my humble opinion.
