About This File

Before industrialization the main occupation of people, for ALL civilizations, has been agriculture.

Without a reliable source of food, no empire could fuel it's troops or civilian population for long.

Cyrodiil is vast, boasting 9 fortified cities and an immense population. Yet where are the farms that

should be dotting the landscape in every direction? Where does all the food come from to feed that

population?

 

Settlements of Cyrodiil is an attempt to answer those questions. The project first began as an effort

to rescue some very nice farm and village mods that had gone to the wayside so to speak. Some of these

had fallen victim to un-patched conflicts with larger, more popular mods. Others were unfinished beta

releases that the original authors simply abandoned.

 

 

Details

=========

 

Silverfish Falls adds a fully functioning settlement on the way to Morrowind, near the headwaters of

the Silverfish River. It was originally created by Poolacemail, titled Lakeview Village, and was

situated at the pond near the Ayleid Ruins of Mackamentain. It unfortunately occupied exactly the

same real estate as Shezries Lakewood Village, and also suffered mod conflicts with Unique Landscapes-

Aspen Wood. This meant the only realistic fix was moving everything.

 

So the settlement was completely relocated and given an extensive makeover. Mod conflicts have been

greatly reduced and patches are available as separate downloads for the only conflicts I am aware of.

Additional resources have been added to flesh it out a little more. The architecture is a unique

combination of Cheydinhal and common farmhouse. The occupants have full ai packages and can be seen

performing various tasks throughout the day. They raise several different types of crops and tend a

small herd of swine. There is at least one adventurer who travels afield to hunt deer.

 

My focus has been to give the appearance of a working settlement that lives off of what it produces.

Local vendors sell what they raise and provide several services to travellers. You will find a

Blacksmith, an Inn, and a General Store. The Smith carries the unique weapons & armor featured in the

mod: Knightly Armory by Phitt and Ghogiel. There is a Room to rent at the Inn for a fair price. The

Lord of Silverfish Manor graciously allows members of the Fighter's Guild to sleep for free in the

basement. There is a free bed there for you, provided you are at least Journeyman level. Some NPC's

also serve as trainers.

 

While I have done my best to iron out all the glitches, it seems there is always something to fix in

a first release. I welcome all feedback and constructive criticism. Hopefully you will enjoy visiting

this little slice of paradise as much as I enjoyed building it.

 

 

Location

==========

 

The path leading to the settlement can be found on the Unnamed, Unmarked Road that leads east towards

Morrowind from the Yellow Road. I have added in signposts to aid in finding your way. The settlement

itself can be found at the waterfall pond located south of Ondo Ayleid Ruins and North of Lost Boy

Caverns. There is a map marker, but you will have to hoof it there at least once to "discover" the

settlement.

 

 

Requirements

================

 

Oblivion patched to 1.2.0416

Settlements of Cyrodiil Resource Pack v1.3

 

 

Install

========

 

1. Extract to your Oblivion Data folder either manually or Using the mod manager of your choice.

 

2. Set load order.

 

3. Play and enjoy!

 

 

Load Order

==============

 

Suggest using BOSS to set load order. All of these files are already recognized.

Specific load order instructions are included with each read-me file as well.

 

 

Compatibility

===============

 

May conflict with other mods and patches which edit the same game cells. Tested and works fine

with Unique Landscapes-The Eastern Peaks. Compatibility patches are available as a separate

download for Unique Landscapes-Silverfish River Valley and Integration: The Stranded Light.

 

There are two versions of the Integration patches due to there being two different versions of

the Integration mod. Folders are labeled accordingly in the download. Also available are two combo

patches that allow use of Silverfish Falls, UL Silverfish River Valley, and Integration at the

same time. As explained above, there are two files included with the download. Be sure you read

the instructions and use the correct patch for the mod version you have or you will get CTD.
