Authentic Cities project also includes:
Authentic Solitude
Authentic Riften
Authentic Windhelm

This textures pack replaces every vanilla exterior textures of Whiterun. It aims to give a natural and beautiful looking to one of the most important cities of Skyrim.

Whiterun is an old city, built a long time ago with Nordic wood, stone and blood. Authentic Whiterun brings this feeling and gives real vibes to every adventurers who go through its door.

Initialy this textures pack was made for Purity as an optional file, but obviously it was a simplier solution to create a new, stand alone file. So people who don't use or know Purity can also enjoy my work.


- What resolution are these textures?
Globaly they are twice the vanilla size. As usual in my mods, I try to find the best balance between great visual and no framerate loss. This mod doesn't go against that rule.

- Will you make UHD/4k versions?
Nope, no need to ask.

Is it compatible with my city overhaul?
Yes, as long as your overhaul uses vanilla textures for extra items/objects added. In any way, it WILL be compatible but I can't promise it will be visualy nice.

- Will you work on other cities?

- What ENB/mods did you use in your screenies?
No ENB, only Purity.
