Dragon's Eye View: Skyrim's Ultro-Map

I suppose we'll need to come up with some sort of battleplan about how we cover Skyrim mods, given about fifty more of them crop up every time I blink. A round-up a little later down the line would only be sensible, but in the meantime this particular one is just too fine to pass up. Skyrim's map - one of several sources of interface-based ire for Jim - presents the game's world as one grand vista, but what it can't do is show you much in the way of what's actually at the place you're thinking of visting. The Map In Full 3D mod is the Google Street View-aping answer: enabling that curious scrollwheel finger of yours to zoom right down to the ground and pan across the main open-world part of the game. It's NPC-free, but it's a spectacular way to have a bird's eye view of a splendid world that's almost as chilly as Southern England is today. I CAN'T FEEL MY TOES.

I'm keeping my Skyrim mod-free for a little while longer, but as soon as I've polished off the main quest I'll be attaching as many weird nodules as I can find, including this.
