Well, it slowly gets late summer / autumn, so The Elder Scrolls draw me in again, inevatibly. :)

I'm really looking forward to the first version of your Roads mod. It will be a great addition to my quest's "travel guide" books :D

Thanks to hazelnut's help, the next version will be published as .dfmod. This was necessary because of a few added new locations, and because the number of loose files in various folders would be a bit much now. The story of the next version focuses on the region Tulune.

I am still working daily on the next update.

In the previous version, the included texts assumed that "Distant Terrain" is installed and used with its Improved Terrain option, i.e. higher mountains. The hiking descriptions assume this.

I have decided that in the next version I will change this and update the descriptions accordingly. I will assume that both "Interesting Terrain" and "Basic Roads" are installed. "Interesting Terrain" is so beautiful and feels very natural, and "Basic Roads" provides a lot of context to the locations.

I know that currently both can't be combined.

They can be enabled both, but roads will not show if used with "Interesting Terrain". However, as far as I know, the developers try to make the mods compatible, and if one has also installed the "Travel Options" mod, one can at least see the road network on the travel map.

When players finish the 1st questline (as already known from the 0.2 version of the questpack), players will now get a press pass, to confirm they are now freelance reporter for the BHC. This pass is a custom book which players can carry in their inventory. If it is present, it will be recognized by other quests, so they can play out differently if the player is a reporter or is not a reporter.
