REQUIRES Latest Skyrim Version
REQUIRES The Gray Cowl of Nocturnal
Paper World Map


Warburg's wonderful Paper World Map mod is a must-have in my load order, but it is not compatible with any new worldspaces, as each new land must have a hand-drawn map texture made for it. This mod is an attempt to rectify that incompatibility and thus make adventuring in the Alik'r Desert more enjoyable and immersive.

This one was odd to make, since there aren't very many features that you can really map in a sandy desert (especially one so prone to change as the Alik'r is), and the fact that the worldspace is shaped like a basin prevents me from doing what I wanted to do with the cliffs. Still, I think it turned out alright and I had a lot of fun with the change of style. Enjoy.


Install with your favorite mod manager. Alternately, manually extract the data folder to your game directory and approve all folder merges/overwrites. Move the esp below any other mod that edits the Gray Cowl worldspace and activate it.

IMPORTANT: Warburg's plugins as well as my own Paper World Map - The Gray Cowl.esp MUST be loaded after anything that may modify the same worldspaces. If you are getting a messed up camera angle or other issues when viewing the map, check your load order and make sure they are loaded as late as possible.

All of my map plugins should be safe to merge, but please merge them manually via TES5Edit. It's very simple as each of my plugins only changes one or two WRLD records.
For those who insist on using Merge Plugins, do so at your own risk. Some users have reported unsightly bugs. Merging in the following order has been reported to work properly; Falskaar -> Wyrmstooth -> The Gray Cowl -> Solstheim

Always make sure that you backup your existing savegame before adding any mod, mine included


No known issues, other than those caused by Paper World Map itself (eg not being able to place a custom marker accurately)
