Warning! Do not use together with LightingShader Tweak. That tweak will remove all cubemap effects in the game. AW's look relies alot on cubemaps, so while it will not break your game or cause crashes, it will not look as intended.

Super easy NMM installer uploaded. The only file you need if you install with Nexus Mod Manager. Find it under files or click here

Compatible with:
SMIM
ELFX
No Snow Under the Roof 
Better Dynamic Snow

WHAT DOES THIS MOD DO?


Farmhouses have been altered to give windows cupemap reflections and transparency. To add realism, low poly interiors have been added to exterior meshes. The only texture that will be replaced is the window textures for farmhouses. The window textures are hand made from scratch.

HOW EXACTLY?


By replacing the meshes of farmhouses. Only those meshes that contain windows have been altered.

WHY?


Disappointed with how windows looked in vanilla skyrim, and not getting the results I wanted from doing retextures, I set a goal to make this mod.

HOW DO I INSTALL THIS THING?



Either download the NMM installer and install with Nexus Mod Manager. 

OR:

1. Download Main File
2. Open Nexus Mod Manager
3. Add the file and install it. ( replace files if asked )

OR:

1. Download Main File
2. Unpack the files 
3. Drag the "meshes" and "textures" folders to your skyrim/data folder (Make a backup of any conflicting files if you want to be able to backroll)

If you use SMIM, ELFX and/or No Snow Under the Roof:
1. Download and install the main file
2. Download the patch/patches
3. install with nexus mod manager or manually. Replace files when asked

WHAT ABOUT COMPABILITY?


All retextures of farmhouses are compatible, the only texture this mod changes is the window texture. If you want to install a 
retexture that affects farmhouses, install that one first, then this mod. 

I really recommend getting SMIM and then 4K Parallax Skyrim by Pfuscher aka Zerwas1  before installing this mod. 
It is not required, but things will look much better.


CAN I REMODEL INTERIORS OR MAKE RETEXTURES OF YOUR MOD?


Yes ofc. Do whatever you like with the mod! :) Just don't be a douche and pretend like you made it all by yourself. And please don't redistribute this mod without asking me first.

If you're interested in retexturing this mod, the main file contains a readme.txt in which you can read about what the different textures are used for and how they relate to the meshes.

WILL YOU MAKE MORE WINDOW MODS?


As long as I find it fun I will keep expanding this mod. Hopefully I'll finnish all windows of Skyrim one day.
