About this mod

Relaunch of a mod to fix a slew of problems with object placement, world seams, lighting, etc., in Whiterun, Riverwood, and Riften.

Permissions and credits
This is a re-release of Unofficial Skyrim City Patch (abandoned in 2017), with bug/compatibility fixes and now new features.  It is a mod that fixes a slew of problems in three cities of Skyrim:

* Whiterun (exterior and some interiors)
* Riverwood (exterior and interiors)
* Riften (exterior and some interiors).

Fixes include: houses floating above the ground; chimneys not emitting smoke; incorrect alignment of light sources with fire pits, windows, houses, etc.;
mis-placed/misaligned objects, "fixes" by USLEP that were not actual fixes or not quite good enough; removes grass from Riften (the crashiest and most
system-stressing city in the game); removes unseen objects; adds objects that actually belong; fixes worldspace seam problems that allowed looking into
"the void"; and much more.

Eine deutsche Version ist jetzt verfügbar (a German version is now available).

More fixes in this new edition:

* 1.6.3: Fixes clipping of chests in Faringar's room, Dragonsreach, Whiterun.
* 1.6.2b: Fixes clipping of cabinets under Jarl Balgruf's desk in Dragonsreach.
* 1.6.2b: Masters cleaned.  Mod renamed slightly.
* 1.6.1b: Better compatibility with Skyrim Project Optimization (may not be complete compatibility; needs testing).
* 1.6.0: Home and tavern fires no longer damage NPCs
* 1.6.0: Wall/floor flickering problems in Dragonsreach, especially with ELFX, should be resolved. This does not necessarily guarantee full compatibility with ELFX; the original mod was not designed to be compatible with it.

Original Mod's Description


Requirements and Installation

This requires Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch (USLEP or USLeEP).
That in turn requires all three of the DLCs.

Install like any other mod, either with a mod manager or manually.  Mod manager users should remove the original mod first if installed.  Manual installers should overwrite an existing Unofficial Skyrim City Patch Modified.esm, if present.

Also remove "Unofficial Riverwood Fix - Interior and Exterior Cells" (Unofficial Riverwood Fix.esp), if present. That is an old version of 1/3 of this mod.

I would suggest putting this, in your load order, shortly after USLEP along with other game-wide patches like Skyrim Supplemental Patch and Unofficial Skyrim Modders Patch.  This is where LOOT puts it automatically.

Permissions and Credits

I impose no restrictions of any kind on this, and the original had none either.

The first Unofficial Skyrim City Patch was by DDVIL.  Specific fixes integrated into this version were worked out by TagerJharn, MatthHunter, and Shakarian2154 in the Posts and Bugs sections of the original mod's Nexus page. All these named users who still have accounts receive an equal portion of the Nexus Mod Rewards/Donation Points for this mod.  DDVIL has also been made a manager of this mod at Nexus, in case they come back around.  DDVIL also credited (for unspecified help) Sthaagg, sirjesto, LucidAPS, CyborgArmGun, and Craigdkilner.  Some potential credit is also possibly due toward Arthmoor and the rest of the USKP/USLEP team, as USCP fixes some of the same things USLEP attempted to fix, just differently (but USLEP or USKP before it may have first identified them as problems to fix).  All images used are by DDVIL, from the original mod page.

Made It into "Hot Mods"

Even competing with waifus. :-)
