About this mod

Solstheim's cities, buildings and clutter should be covered in ash. Now they are.

Ever wondered why all those barrels and crates in Raven Rock were completely clean in an ash-filled landscape?
What about those abandoned, half-destroyed farms? Telvanni towers?
No? Well, I did. And I did something about it.




WHAT THIS MOD DOES
Add ash to a ton of buildings and objects in Solstheim. In some cases I created and applied a custom ash shader so the effect would look more natural. ALL THE ASH!



AREAS COVERED

  • Raven Rock
  • Tel Mithryn
  • Hroldulf's House
  • Old Attius Farm
  • Nchardak
  • Wreck of the Strident Squall

KNOWN ISSUES/LIMITATIONS

  • Rather than directly edit vanilla statics -- running into compatibility problems with housing or other mods that use those assets -- I replaced all of the relevant vanilla statics with my own ash-covered ones. Upside: No ash showing up where you don't want it to. Downside: Settlement expansion mods may need patches if you want them to be as ashy as the originals.
  • Some of the lootable urns in Raven Rock were replaced with static versions (containers can't have ash applied to them). I gave them varying amounts of coverage so the ones I left lootable should still blend in well.
  • The mushroom trees won't show ash. -quiet sobbing- I'm working on it but I don't know why.
