Thank you to Pfc. J. Zocko [47th AB] RET for the video!


  • Merchant's gold is significantly increased (so players are able to sell their items)
  • Merchants stock is increased (so players have a wider range of items to choose from)
  • Merchants stock for high-level players is improved (so high-level players still benefit from shopping)
  • Major cities now have lumberjacks (so players can buy firewood quickly without having to chop it themselves)

All this mod requires in an up-to-date version of Skyrim. No DLC or other mods are necessary. Also, this mod has been tested with over 250 other mods, and no compatibility issues have been found, even alongside huge trading overhauls.
