If I was going around, filling in my map, myself, as I explored mines; I would put a note, on the map, as to what each mine was. That way I wouldn't go half way across the country and waste time mining in an iron mine, if I needed gold!

This mod adds the type of ore in each mine to it's name on the map, so mines like 'Bilegulch Mine' become 'Bilegulch Orichalcum Mine.' It also, optionally, adds a number of map markers, to mines on the map, so that main cities don't have ores appended to their names.

There is also an optional installer choice for the Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch Compatibility. The USSEP corrects Redbelly Mine to be an Iron mine and Northwind Mine to be an Ebony Mine. This reflects that.

The mod was rebuilt from the ground up for Skyrim Special Edition. Special care was taken to resolve ALL bugs that existed in the previous versions. It was then cleaned with SSEEdit and an installer package was built for the different options.

The cave is short, contains more than enough mining spots, and the only Moonstone mines were unmarked. It is also referred to as a mine by the NPC at it's entrance.

Goldenrock Mine is now marked, itself. The settlement can be shown as a settlement.

Please let me know if anyone sees any errors, or let me know if you have any requests or opinions. I am here to serve! This is a simple mod (although getting more complex with each patch); however, so I don't expect many.

Some people might find the inclusion of some map markers (like Fort Fellhammer) to be redundant, as there is a marker for the Fort and the Mine. I, personally, wanted to be able to find a fort (or get the marker from a quest) without psychic knowledge that there was a mine inside. I also like the fort still being marked as a fort, not a mine. But tell me what you think!

Gloombound Mine (Iron and Ebony) has a really long name. Not sure how that will feel in-game but seemed valuable for the accuracy. Also, in the Lore Friendly variants Soljund's Sinkhole and Moonstone Mine has a tremendously long name. Soljund's Moonstone Mine just felt like a lore change but I will test and possibly change.

Thanks to the hard work of Astree, Detailed Mine Markers now has a French translation, which can be found HERE.
