*Requires the Dragonborn and Hearthfires Official DLCs*

There are screenshots above, but a video shows so much more then screenshots. Meet some of the residents of the town, check out the voice acting and have a quick look around the town in these videos. (If you enjoy the videos please leave a thumbs up on You Tube, I put a lot of work into them.)

Twenty Six buildings.
Twenty nine voiced characters.
Over 800 lines of voiced dialog.
Twenty three dialog scenes between residents.
Enterable windows on all NPC homes in the upper town.
NPCs turn their lights off at night and put out their fires, do your thieving in the dark with nothing but the dim light coming in through windows.
Sign posted, named streets.
Secret underground town with tavern, inn, fence shop, poisons shop, forge and player homes. Access it through a window into an abandoned building.
Two taverns and an inn.
Two buy able player houses, both very unique. Look out your windows into the towns. Activate able lights, labeled storage, alchemy room, forge, garden with plots to grow etc... See walk through video for one here.
Labeled storage for all your item storage needs.
Activate able lights, fireplaces in the player homes.
Two buy able player apartments, great for the starting character. Both in apartment blocks with other residents. Both with secret exits.
Loads of shops, a clothes store, a general store, an alchemy store, a poisons store, a fence, an archery store, a vegetable stall and a weapons stall.
The most complete library in the game, with every non skill book and more. You can read the books but you cannot remove them.
Secret passages and secret rooms.
You can buy DLC in the mod. (See video 2, The Current State of Old Hroldan)
Short quest type thing, find out information about a resident.
Unlock new dialog.
All store have safes to store their takings.
All lore about Old Hroldan is respected and incorporated into the town.
Is the town haunted? Find out.
All house interiors are unique. I challenged myself to create different layouts for each house.

If the bard has run through his songs and stops playing in the Cloak and Dagger Tavern, leave the cell and return, he will play again.
There are twelve dialog scenes in the Cloak and Dagger Tavern, sometimes scenes can take a while to start so you may need to wait around a while or keep returning to hear some new tale.
To hear information about a certain resident you can hear a scene between the Mayor and his assistant, Helena, in the Town Hall. Keep entering the place, that scene will crop up.
Look around carefully, often even non voiced NPCs have a tale to tell of how they got to the town and why they are there.
The doors in the underground town are scripted to close themselves, this is to ensure that they are not locked by the NPCs in the open position, which would allow the player to access shops after closing.
The weather may be different in Wood Haven, from outside. If this bothers you, try to exit and then re-enter the cell. Other then that there is nothing that can be done there.
If you break the law the guards will send you to Cidna Mine in Markarth.
You need to really investigate, explore, talk to people, listen and activate stuff to really find out what is going on in this town. There is tons going on and the town has real character and depth to it. If you just pass through quickly you will miss a lot.
I am aware that in the player house, Wood Haven, if you use Frostfall it will act as though you are in an exterior cell. I have no idea what I can do about this, I cannot make the cell an interior.
At this point you cannot move your family there, the way the player homes are set up does not allow this. This may change in the future.
I don't use an ENB, never have. So the screenshots and the in game lighting are all done to a vanilla game with no texture replacers or ENBs.
