    I last posted five years ago and I still use this, the thief pack, and ranger pack on every playthrough. No town overhaul has come close to the charm this has. All the variety of shops....the shoe cobbler, instrument shop, and even a cartwright. I fixed some brown faces here and there but that's so minor compared to the huge immersion packed in this mod. Love all your mods. Thank you again.

      I use the Creation Kit. You search for the NPC name, highlight it, and then ctrl+F4 to generate facegen files.

    Can someone convert this to Special Edition? It seems like Nernie has completely disappeared...

    Hi Nernie.
    Thanks for your great mods (Nernies Ranger Pack,...,...).
    Is it possible to make a standalone version of Windhelm Expansion ? ? ?

    This mod is pretty cool in concept but ultimately feels awkward in a game like Skyrim where most of the interesting stuff happens in cities. This mod adds housing including taverns, blacksmiths, etc around cities to effectively expand them, but there never feels like there's a good reason to enter them as none of the NPCs have anything interesting to say apart from default dialogue, so you'll never stumble across anything interesting when inside one of the modded buildings and the town is usually only a quick walk away so you might as well go the extra distance. Ultimately, this makes the additions outside of cities just window dressing that goes largely ignored. If you think that just window dressing is good and you just want some extra fluff to spice up the environment around towns you might enjoy it, but I felt they were merely a distraction.

      Also I should note that I'm using the S.T.E.P. version from the Explorers guide which from what i can tell removed a lot of other smaller things from this mod for compatibilities sake.

    Hi Nernie,

    May I use your resources in my mod? I'd credit/link you certainly.

      I too was wondering this. I can't find anything on permissions?

    Any plans to eventually port this to SSE? Because that bread looks gorgeous.

    This a very great and simple add on to the game. Simple yet very impactful. I was playing the game last time and noticed a couple things were missing, turns out I forgot to activate this mod. The difference is staggering.

    It would be good if someone could make a version of this for the Special Edition, since it appears Nernie is long gone.

      Agreed, this was an essential Solitude add-on for me.

    i prefer this mod over expanded cities as it adds buildings that are more unique and doesn't add too much. expanded cities fells a bit over the top now and I don't use half the things added by it.

    Howver a merchants in solitude dont sell to me called fernilda and near the bakery luthier house three seems to be a conflict were the door gets covered up. when I used the patch esp it fixed these problems but removed any changes to inside solitudes which is fine but I'm not sure if this was intentional.

    also some npc got killed by a dragon.
