About this mod

Solitude Retexture to mimic Minas Tirith from the LOTR universe - inspired mostly from The Return of the King flim of the Peter Jackson Trilogy.

Permissions and credits

This has been a many hour project I have done in one go. Retexturing the majority of Solitude so that it is a brilliant white (not too brilliant I hope) to mimic the fabled City of Kings that is

Minas Tirith from the Tolkien Universe.

Since Skyrim has many similarities to the LOTR series, for example, Whiterun is very, very similar to Rohan (top of a hill, norse based designs) but interestingly the gildergreen tree is based of the White tree in Minas Tirith.

The Solitude City Banner (Red cross with wolf) has been replaced with the white tree of Gondor as see in the images. Copyright Tolkien Estate.

To have a Solitude without the Moss on the walls to have a better feel to the City,
get this - No More Moss - Solitude by Dragten:

And for the roads, Solitude no grass on road by Yoraphcool:

Notice: The armors and guards seen in the pictures are NOT included. I just added them to add to the flavour of the mod. The armors seen are:

MERPs Gondorian Armament by BGS:

Gondor Armor by Maty743:

Get them there.

These textures have been scaled down and are not HD I am afraid. They are based of vanilla/base game textures and should not be taxing anybody's computer too much.

I would not say these are finished but who knows.
