RedBag's Solitude
Overhaul for the most beautiful city and its docks.
SSE version available

Introduction
Long before Skyrim was released, i used to look at maps of Tamriel and wonder what could this northern-most city look like. I imagined a truly special city. But after discovering it, i was left with mixed feelings. The position on the cliff is epic, but i can't really feel it when i am inside the city. Entire city is basically one long street. There are disproportionately big empty spaces in its center. And the docks are almst non-existent.

This mod adresses those issues, and makes Solitude a truly special place i imagined it would be - a city on an arch, and you will feel it!

  • 59 new citizens
  • Revamped tunnel entrance
  • 1 new entrance

Performance
This mods adds too much NPCs and objects for Oldrim's engine, you will experience FPS drops at certain places. SE version has much better performance.

  2. Install the patch for Open Cities and Unofficial Skyrim patch, if you use those mods.
  3. If you decide to keep the mod, run TES5LODGen to see the changes from afar.
