Better Solstheim Locations adds map markers to several unmarked locations throughout Solstheim. It also adds a few hunting & fishing camps in order to give the Skaal more of a presence on the island.


Vanilla locations given a marker:

 - Ash Hopper Island
 - Ash field near Tel Mithryn (Gandrung Ashfield)
 - Dark Elf Camp (Dunmer Camp)
 - Fahlbtharz Lift
 - Fishing Camp (Abandoned Fishing Camp)
 - Giant Nirnroot Island (Gronnringar Island)
 - Horker Dragon Mound (
 - Isinfier Dragon Mound
 - Lake near Thirsk (Lake Fjalding)
 - Miner Camp (Unlucky Miner's Camp)
 - Reaver Camp
 - Reaver's End
 - Riekling Island
 - Shrine of Kynareth
 - Shrine of Zenithar
 - Usha's Camp (Usha's Claim)

Most of these locations are listed at

A few of these weren't named, so I gave them lore-friendly names. The mod also adds a few Skaal camps in order to give them more of a presence on the island. Fishing camps are located along the coasts, hunting camps are inland. No NPCs are added currently, but I hope to do that in the future.

I also corrected a few minor issues at the vanilla locations, such as floating trees on 'Giant Nirnroot Island'.

"Better Solstheim Locations" should be compatible with most other mods, but any mod that modifies or uses the same locations on Solstheim may cause a conflict. I'll list incompatible mods as I learn about them:
