About this mod

This mod adds VWD models for all town house models.

VWD for Town Houses

· - = | Description | = - ·

In vanilla Oblivion inside the closed cities in the Tamriel worldspace, there are a bunch of low res houses that are also visible from afar.
The real houses (for example visible when using Open Cities) have no VWD models.

I grabbed the vanilla houses and renamed them for each of the real house models. I also adjusted them slightly in size or position. Where they did absolutely not match, I created a few new ones from scratch. They are not very detailed, but it's not like the vanilla ones will win a beauty contest, either.
I'm hoping to one day find the time to make a few more models, but right now, I don't have the time. If I wait for that, this mod will sit on my HD for months and gather dust and I rather release it as it is and add to it later.

While this is probably most visible when using Open Cities, it will also work for any houses that are outside of the city areas, like Border Watch, which is using Leyawiin houses, or Lord Drad's Estate, which uses a Chorrol house.
Without Open Cities it will have no effect on the houses inside towns.

Anvil - Vanilla models, resized if needed
Bravil - Vanilla models, repositioned
Bruma - Vanilla models + new lower class model
Cheydinhal - Vanilla, resized if needed
Chorrol - Vanilla and new models
Leyawiin - New models
Skingrad - Vanilla models, resized if needed
Lowerclass - One new model used for all

Some cities work better than others, for example Skingrad and Bravil look pretty nice even without modifications, while Chorrol and Leyawiin are a mess with too many different house shapes/colors.
