Attention!!  Please READ!!
Hey guys. 
UPDATE ON ME....With a very heavy heart I am no longer able to do any more modding.  I lost total vision in one eye as you may have known and am now loosing it in the other eye.  I am at the point I have to use text to speech programs to read things.  I HATE IT.  I am very sorry for those who are looking forward to further work and updates but it is not possible any more.  I had a blast making mods and it was a a very rewarding experience.  I will continue to keep my mods available for use.  As for the Mods I have PORTED, any further work and updates will have to be by the Original Author if they with to do so.  If there is anyone who would like to take the reins of my work and continue to further what my Dream was for the Dark Skyrim Overhaul series, please contact me for further information.  Love you guys and please continue Have Fun and Game on.
Thanks and regards

Dark Forests of Skyrim
Solstheim Apocalypse

General Information:

  • - Adds over 150 new types of trees to the island

  • - there is now a giant ash desert with more ash dunes, blowing ash, and no living trees from Attius Farm to Fort Frostmoth.  

  • - A mushroom forest now stretches from the eastern side of Fort Frostmoth to Tel Mithryn.  I’ve added over a hundred mushrooms and some are very BIG

  • - The southern part of the island now has smaller flora native to Morrowind. 

  • - Middle Solstheim has more trees, both living, ash covered, and dead.

  • - There is an oasis north of Tel Mithryn with green oaks and flora
  • - ash covered pines and custom trees are now much bigger 

  • - Over 200 pines, dead snowy pines, and living snowy pines have been added to the northern half of the island, returning the northern forests to their glory days of Bloodmoon.
  • Thanks to Zhoulia for the vastly improved textures for the dead snowy pines.  Please drop her an endorsement for her awesome work
