Q: Are there any requirements?
A: Yes! Dawn of Windhelm requires Dragonborn. No other mods or DLCs are required.

Q: Will you make a version without Dragonborn?
A: No.

Q: Full list of features?
- Completely revamped Grey Quarter, complete with new market area, shrines, Morrowind lighting and flora, as well as a plethora of
hand-picked details.
- Revitalized front entrance, including Ysgramor statue (the city was founded by him, after all), and touches to
Candlehearth Hall
- Stormcloak recruitment desk
- Palace of the Kings entrance redone for a more awe-inspiring look
- Detailed market district and graveyard
- Statue of Talos near Hjerim
- Improvements all around the city, including trees (not too many), flora, snow, banners, and crates / barrels, and snowberries.
- Removed some things that dirtied Windhelm, such as the obnoxious dead shrubs that were everywhere.
- Hid that awful wall with the striped texture near Hjerim

Q: The boar is loading outside of his pen.
A: Update the mod.

Q: Translations?
A: Existing translations are linked in the representative flags above. If you would like to make a translation, please contact me for permission. Current translations are linked by the country flags on the top of the page.
