The maps mod roads blends into Skyland too well making them hard to see. Install it after Skyland or delete the Landscape folder in Skyland before installing with NMM. You will lose your LODS for Skyland if you do this thought. You may lose the Skyland LODs either way.

Frequently Asked Questions
(Like, really frequently)

Q - Can I make a patch for the maps mod? OR You mod messes up my map mod!
A - Here's the facts: the map roads are very close in color to my LOD texture colors. The roads are there and can see them, but they blend in way too much. So, you have two choice: install the map mod after mine and let it overwrite what it asks for. Or you could open the Skyland zip file, delete the landscape folder (the folder with the LOD textures) and proceed to install normally through NMM. 

Q - Will you make a 1k version?
A - Yup! It's in the files section!

Q - Will there be a 4k version?
A - No. I made these in 2k. Upscaling to 4k would lose much of it's quality.

Q - Will you make a parallax version?
A - That is the plan once the whole set is done and I can find someone to make it

Q - I don't like loose file downloads, can you make a BSA please?
A - I tried and it didn't work for people. So I'm keeping it as a loose file download for now.

Q - Is this better than **** Texture pack?
A - I have no clue. It's totally up to you what you like and if it blends well with other mods you have.

Q - Will this work with **** mod?
A - Yes, it works with all mods. Just install Skyland and let it overwrite everything. If you don't like it, just uninstall and everything goes back to how it was before.

Q - Can I see how this compares to **** Texture Mod?
A - A video comparison will be uploaded shortly.

Q - This one thing doesn't look right. What's wrong with your pack?
A - Nothing is wrong with it. I swear, if you turn the Skyland mod off and run vanilla textures, it will look just as bad. Welcome to Skyrim and Bethesda landscapes.

Q - Will you fix (insert request), add (insert request), do (insert request)?
A - I hear all suggestions and read all the comments. But what I do or not do is up to my timeline and discretion. Also, plans change. So something that I may plan on may never happen and sometimes you may be surprised at an unannounced launch.
