Cities of the North is my project to create a custom tileset for each of the four minor cities : Dawnstar, Morthal, Falkreath and Winterhold. There are more than enough overhauls for these on the Nexus, but I've never felt like each of these cities was truly unique. The difference between these four and the five major ones is simple : unique architecture. Solitude, Whiterun, Riften, Windhelm and Markarth each have a strong visual identity and you immediately know whether you are in the Reach or the Rift just by looking at the buildings. I wanted to do the same for the hold capitals that were only made of farmhouses and thus had no real identity independently of which overhaul you used. This project aims to stay close to vanilla and be as compatible as possible. The idea is that you can use any of you favourite overhauls (or combination of), install this mod with the necessary patch, and give this unique architecture style to the version of the city you prefer. I hope this project brings you this little something that was missing in your cities. Enjoy !

* New unique model for every building in Falkreath *

* New interiors matching the buildings *

* Completely navmeshed (no auto-generation) *

* LOD has been completely generated for the area *

* The Jarl's longhouse music has been changed to match the major cities' ones *

* A total of 8 new interiors, including homes for Kust and Valdr *

It is recommended to install this mod on a new save, otherwise some objects may not be placed correctly in the interiors. If
you have not entered Falkreath's houses in your playthrough yet, you can install it on your current save.

I recommend using DynDOLOD if you intend to combine this mod with a Falkreath overhaul. I have included the necessary models in the BSA archive so DynDOLOD can use them when generating LOD for your load order.

Compatibility patches can be found on the dedicated Patch Collection, featuring a vast choice of patches for the most popular mods.
