SO I had a friend who played Skyrim for well over 2000 hours. Like at least a month in total game time. He knew all the missions, all the little easter eggs, level like 86somethingfuckalldemigod, and used all the crafting he could because fuck it. I told him how I named my favorite swords and hammers. He never knew you could name stuff through enchanting. In all his time this was the one thing that eluded him and his smug "Ive done everything" attitude. I laughed. I'm still laughing to this day.

I only recently learned about Solstheim’s four peaks, and I’ve been playing fairly consistently for at least two years.

Solstheim Genesis - WIP

This is my latest modding adventure: returning Solstheim to its third era glory. The southern half of the island will look like the verdant hills of Vvardenfell with its characteristic flora and mushrooms and a ton of beautiful grass. I’ve removed all of the ash textures from the ground but will leave some of the smoking trees, lava projectiles, and the smoke plume from red mountain. All ash storms have also been replaced with some clear and sunny weather. The northern part of the island will have more trees and flora, similar to the Bloodmoon DLC I’m using Mt St Helens as inspiration so if you think this is cool then check out how the area around the volcano has sprung back to life after 35 years. It’s been over 100 years since red mountain has erupted, plenty of time for the island to come back to life
