This mod aims to give you a World Map that is fun to look at. It now has better textures and introduces detailed roads. I tried my best to draw out every single road, but if I missed one, please let me know! 😀 (I’m pretty sure I got them all.)

Also, roads are pretty accurate. I walked along every one as I drew them. :p

In version 2.0 I made a map that show main roads, only. This was requested by Farning, and is a great idea. Thank you. 🙂 Enjoy!

In version 3.0 I fixed a few roads to look nicer and added a missing road, found by Pcuser. Thank you! Both maps have been updated so if you have either map you will want 3.0.

In version 4.0 I compressed the map files using DXT1. There isn’t any loss
of quality and should improve performance, if you were experiencing any FPS
hit that is. 🙂 I also softened a few roads to make them nicer and re-drew
them for a more fluid look. Lastly, I extended the road south, leading to

In version 5.0 I created two new maps. They are classic styled maps to give
that feel you are using a map and not a GPS device, haha. They are still in
3D, but have been completely redrawn and all objects have been removed as
well. I also drew the political borders for these maps: Whiterun Hold,
Falkreath Hold, The Reach, Haafingar, Hjaalmarch, The Pale, Winterhold,
Eastmarch, The Rift, all seperated by red borders. For the regular Quality
Maps, I smoothed out a few roads and tried to make them a little nicer. 🙂

Thanks goes to Ethatron for providing enchanced map LOD. I was originally
doing this with vanilla textures, but after he released that, I couldn’t
-not- use them. Thank you Ethatron! 😀



If you have the following “uLockedTerrainLOD” tweak in your Skyrim.ini, this
map won’t load properly. Remove that line from your .ini for this mod to
