  1. The Coffee House

    The Coffee House is a comfortable inn along the road from Whiterun to Markarth/Rorikstead, just where the road from Falkreath runs into it near a dragon mound.  Run by the Khajiit, Ah'vrie (known as The Cat, to his friends), it provides a stopping off point to relax, warm up, and maybe get some sleep when travelling.  And, due to its central location, it also provides an excellent base of operations for the whole central part of Skyrim.
    The mod itself is based off the Steam SSE forum thread The Coffee House, where many long time Skyrim players and forum members get together, and whose character portraits occupy the walls of the Inn (as well as "easter eggs" being scattered around).  But the mod is not just about that, it is about an inviting place where anyone can just stop in, kick back, and relax - all with a friendly atmosphere and some special foods to select from on the menu (and yes - coffee, tea, and alcoholic beverages as well, plus free chips to munch on from bags, while supplies last).  And, as an added bonus, an original Etienne and Hador story in book form, "The House In The Snow", in the Guest (player) room.
    The mod is compatible with Fall of Granite Hill (though there will undoubtedly be some navmesh issues) as well as The People of Skyrim V10 AE (including the version with the Hold gates - and again, possible navmesh issues).  If you are using UNP Merchants by Foaman, you will need the patch for it (flagged as an .esl).  Permission for patch as per Foaman: "If you would like to make patches for this mod (to publish), feel free to do so as long as they are addons over this mod (separate esps)" from Permissions and credits - https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/16807
    Some things to be aware of - NPCs will not show you to your room.  When an NPC is scheduled to start a new package, sometimes they will not do so unless you exit the Inn and then reenter it.  There may be some pathing issues with the navmesh if you are using a mod that also changes that area. Any issues will be addressed in a future update (there is one currently planned by Avrie, co-creator of the idea for the Coffee House, that will add additional features to the mod).  If asked to overwrite anything, allow the mod to do so.  Also, some items in the mod will appear differently than in the pics, due to the mods that I am using, and based upon your mods (or lack, thereof).
    Enjoy!

  2. Expanded Towns and Cities SSE

    Expands upon existing towns. So far includes: Darkwater Crossing, Dawnstar, Kynesgrove, Morthal, Riverwood and Rorikstead. Available in "Complete" - All the towns packed together; and, "Modular" - Individual towns à la carte versions. (Karthwasten and Morthal are currently in progress.)
    Additional screenshots (slideshows for each town, and for some of the optional features) are available HERE.
    File size was too large to post on the mod page. 
     

    Many thanks to the respective creators for making these translations possible. 


    (Click the images to be taken to their pages.) 
     

    Alright, so - What exactly are you getting? While the new version is certainly in the spirit of its predecessor, it is NOT the same mod. So if you came here expecting identical towns, with identical people and identical layouts – Prepare yourself, because you’re about to be sorely disappointed lol. This was built from the ground up, taking into account everything I have learned in MY CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE AND/OR WISDOM (jokes, I clearly have neither of those things) to try and give you and me and everybody a much better mod overall. 
    I made a lot of mistakes with the old ETaC. Things that, given the opportunity (and a time machine), I would never had done in the first place, things of which we shall never speak again. Mostly for my own sanity. As it turned out, I now HAVE that opportunity to build the mod I’d always wanted to build, so buckle up mod-friendos, we’re going to go on a little adventure together. Which brings me to…
    List of changes!
    As for specifics, I’ll be omitting the small "aesthetic" changes from these list (i.e. clutter, trees, wildlife, lanterns, blah blah) as identifying every single barrel I’ve moved and tree I’ve added would be a huge enormous pain in my arse. (Read: am lazy! HI!) Anyway. (Those things excluded) here's what you get...

    New ETaC will do what it should always have done, and that is towns and nothing else. There will be no changes to vanilla interiors (to maintain compatibility with any mods that make them, ELFX, and etc.) There will be no changes to vanilla NPCs’ actor records (to maintain compatibility with any character mods that make them), there will be no player houses, or new textures, no unnecessary item additions (no more having to patch leveled lists or for survival, food, weapon, or shop mods.) I won’t be “removing” any vanilla markers or intractable objects (to maintain compatibility with other NPC behavior and/or AI mods, 3DNPCs, Immersive Citizens, etc.). I will be *moving* vanilla objects, but NPCs will still be able to find them, and so I won’t have to patch for them. Woot.
    One major change, however, is that New ETaC now requires you to have all the DLC installed. They've been out long enough that most people should have them by now and Hearthfires and Dragonborn in particular are packed with all kinds of useful assets for this kind of mod.

    New ETaC NPCs are going to have a little more depth to them. I’ve added more … “involved,” we’ll call it, AI packages, to make the towns and their inhabitants feel a little livelier. They’ll each have varying daily routines, new dialogue, some of them will have new side quests (which will conform with Skyrim’s side quests - no major quests.) They’ll have some more back story, and will react to your action in the rest of the world, to the weather, they’ll be a least a little bit more human, and slightly less like cardboard cutouts. Or at least that’s the goal lol. 

    I will still be offering Complete and Modular versions of the ETaC files. I will also include version with and without a MCM menu, and versions with and without the added quests in case you hate new things. Which is fine. No judgment.
    And lastly, and maybe most importantly… 

    I’m still who I’ve always been and my particular aesthetic remains largely unchanged. So it’s likely the new ETaC towns will still have the same sort of visual as the old ETaC towns. But I am trying to build things in a slightly more streamlined way. Stuff that would make sense, is practical, and is slightly less of a resource hog than it was in previous versions. So think original ETaC just reigned in a little bit. Some towns will still have unique buildings (I do still plan on adding a bakery to Dragon Bridge – And hey! With Hearthfires, I don’t even need to add new bakery items. I have them already. Hooray! - but I wouldn’t expect to see Dragon Bridge South making a comeback.) although the goal overall is to give them more of a vanilla-feel than might have been in the case in the old mod. 
    Yep. Ok. I’ve rambled on enough to that end, you get the general idea I think. SO. Moving on.

    Whether with writing (I do like zero of the writing for this thing now, thank God), voice acting, or testing (in addition to helping out on the comment thread and discord (speaking of which, many thanks also to Thallassa for doing nearly all of my discord crap for me, including, but not limited to, teaching me how to use the damn thing), providing patches, supplying me with wine, moral and psychological support, random information on bees and mead, and also on Skyrim (did you know there's like a whole game in there? I did not.) or donations of their awesome meshes (please see credits at the bottom for more info on mesh donations) - You guys are amazing, and wonderful, and also good looking, and I literally wouldn't be able to do this without you. 
    And while I'm off on a thanking-people tangent... To Nazenn - I cannot possibly thank you enough for all the wonderful work you've done for me with ETaC (and other mods) (and everywhere else – you've got a lot on your plate, you're literally a machine) in my absence. You're the best ever,. A million trillion thanks to you for... everything. All of it lol. ♥

  3. Oakwood

    A new village reviving an old town from TES:Arena.
    Falkreath Hold has always seemed like a reasonably large place, but having only the Hearthfire home, a house taken over by bandits, and the burned out remains of Helgen hardly does it justice. Oakwood fleshes this out somewhat by placing a fishing and mining village on the shores of Lake Illinalta, just west of Lakeview Manor. This town once existed in TES:Arena but has not been mentioned since so there's nothing saying it wouldn't still be here. When combined with building the Hearthfire home at Lakeview Manor, it feels more like a larger town with a manor house at the head.

  4. Illuminated Blue Palace Dome

    It has always seemed to me that the dome on the Blue Palace in Solitude should be lit up. Now it is.

    As far as I know, this is lore friendly. If not, I do not care to discuss it. Either you like the way it looks, or you don't.
    There is no canon but our imagination.

    If you tfc in console and look closely, you will notice there are no realistic light sources.
    Looking at it from the courtyard, you should never notice this. This mod is just for aesthetic purposes.

    This should be compatible with all lighting and weather mods, unless they touch the dome area of the Blue Palace specifically.
    I use NAT and Relighting Skyrim with ENB, and it looks good in my game.

    The lights stay on all day. It looks good, and Jarl Elisif pays the utility bills, so don't worry about it.

    I made this mod just for me to suit my own personal tastes. If you would rather have the lighting done differently, feel free to create your own mod. You can even edit mine and publish your own version. (Just credit me.) There's room for more than one Blue Palace Dome illuminating mod - variety is the jazbay of life!

    Please let me know if you find any problems with the mod itself so I can try to fix them.

    Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!

  5. The Fall of Granite Hill

    Granite Hill - Three Farms and an Inn, just North of the Falkreath. A Market is Held here Weekly. -- Survey of the Holdings of Jarl Gjalund
    Granite Hill is mentioned in a few places in lore and existed prior to the 4th Era. However nothing remained of it in Skyrim by 4E 201 except the dragon mound where Vuljotnaak was buried in ancient times. All well and good, but with no explanation for what may have happened to the place it felt like a good enough opportunity to tell my own version of events here. With this mod, the 3 farms and the inn are back, but instead of the weekly market, the town has a blacksmith. Of course, that would not be much of a fate, would it? Granite Hill's fate is sealed from the moment Alduin burned down Helgen. Surely the beast and his newly resurrected allies didn't stop there...
    Features:
    * A fully working town prior to Alduin's return. 3 farms, an inn, and a blacksmith. Plus town guard patrols from Falkreath Hold.
    * Upon Vuljotnaak's resurrection by Alduin, the village will be in flames. This will last as long as the dragon is alive.
    * Following the dragon's death, the fires will go out but the town now lies in ruins, swallowed by the World Eater.

  6. Falkreath

    A minor expansion for the city of Falkreath. Provides additional housing for 2 NPCs.
    Like so many other towns in Skyrim, NPCs have been doubled up in housing or simply not given any at all and occupy space at the inn forever. Falkreath is already fairly large and space is limited, but there was enough available to provide homes for Kust and Valdr in a part of the city that wasn't occupied by anything other than trees.

  7. Telengard

    A hunting and fishing village on an island in the Sea of Ghosts.
    Nords have always been spoken of as hearty and tolerant of the cold, but Skyrim has few instances where this is demonstrated. Plus there is a lot of implication that many spend a lot of time at sea hunting horkers and fishing but no reflection of this exists anywhere except one hut in the Skaal Village. This mod aims to change that a bit by offering an entire settlement dedicated to the task of hunting horkers, fishing, and raising goats and cattle for meat. There's plenty of meat and fish available for the taking on the island and now someone is there doing just that!
    I also wanted to do something with the Skaal Village tileset and figured this would be a good opportunity to make use of it and some of their clothing. No, these Nords are not an offshoot of the Skaal, but they do share architecture and some clothing in common.
    Old school (and I mean old) may recognize the name of the mod as an old Commodore 64 game by Avalon Hill (circa 1983). This mod serves as a bit of an homage to the game that first got me hooked on RPGs and on the idea of modding them as well. The village's name isn't the only Easter Egg you'll find either
    Features include:
    * Custom inn layout using Skaal Village architecture.
    * NPCs with complete schedules.
    * Military control changes based on who controls Winterhold.
    * All houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

  8. Rorikstead

    "A Small Farmstead in the Western Plains. Grain, Leather, Horses." - Holdings of Jarl Gjalund.
    Rorikstead is a farming village on the northwest end of Whiterun Hold. It has a rich history with a mention in an ancient book accounting for the property once owned by Jarl Gjaland, and a ballad is sung about the death of Ragnar the Red taking place there. Yet when you see the place in person it's a sad shadow of all of that history.
    This mod aims to bring at least some of that back by expanding the village with more NPCs, houses to put them in, and additional farming for them to do. The town also now has a blacksmith to fulfill the complete picture.
    * Extra guard patrols and guard dogs added to help fend off wildlife and other threats.
    * Two of the new NPCs can be married if you help them with their crops and you can live in their houses with them if you so choose.
    * Lokir's abandoned house is included and can be claimed as a new home if you wish.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * Blacksmith allows investing in his shop with the appropriate Speech perk.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

    This doesn't translate to Feldscar at all. It translates to Keld-Nar, a long abandoned village deep inside Skyrim to the north. Keld-Nar lies in between an ancient Nordic tomb, and a large black rock who's origins Keldon and I were never able to determine. - Raminus Polus, circa 3E 433.
    An age ago, during the Oblivion Crisis, a Nord village found itself on the brink of disaster at the hands of a pair of Dunmer mages. They were on a quest, no, a mission to find what they thought would lead them to salvation against the onslaught of the Daedra. Instead, they found Feldscar and eventually their plans were torn asunder by the Champion of Cyrodiil. But what of the village that Raminus Polus told the Champion about? Keld-Nar, the site of the actual prize the Dunmer sought? Raminus Polus and Keldon Swiftrunner had been there before, but what became of it since then?
    30 years ago, refugees of the Great War set forth out of northern Cyrodiil in a desperate gamble that would answer this question once and for all. Where once ruins lay, a thriving village has sprung up in their place. Come in traveler, stay awhile, rest your weary legs and listen to an old man's tale.
    Keld-Nar is a village in Eastmarch, near the Dwemer ruin of Mzulft. It boasts an inn, a blacksmith, stables to park your horse at, and a decent sized local garrison of troops. Unlike many other populated areas, Keld-Nar welcomes Khajiit, owing to the history the ancestors of the current residents had with them in Feldscar those many decades ago.
    The village starts off held by Stormcloak Rebels and openly worships Talos, but will change hands to Imperial control if they win the Civil War. Where possible, Keld-Nar should also be included in any town based radiant quests and will be subject to dragon attacks. It may also be subject to random vampire strikes if you have Dawnguard.

  10. Dawnstar

    Dawnstar has always been described as a large port city with a lot of activity. What was presented in the game didn't quite do it justice, but until recently putting one's finger on why wasn't so easy. As it turns out, Dawnstar was run by cruel heartless nobles! The miners were condemned to live out their lives neck deep in grime in the mines. Well no more! Now these poor miners have homes like everyone else, and in the process Dawnstar feels more like that larger port city we've been told about too. With six extra homes in it, that shouldn't be much of a surprise. Plus the miners will now go home to sleep, and visit the inn after their shifts are up too. So there will be some of that missing activity now too.
    * Each NPC now has their own home.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees, that account for the changes.

  11. Dragon Bridge

    A small village expansion for Dragon Bridge.
    Dragon Bridge always seemed like it needed something more, and it did. There was always poor Varnius Junius, who gets sent to Solitude representing the town and everything, but had nowhere to live. Plus his boss, Tasius Tragus, who was never placed into the game, but would also have just lived in the inn. The inn is not a home!
    Varnius and Tasius now have their own homes on the northeast side of the village, like everyone else in town. It's not much, but there just isn't enough space in the place for anything more. Tasius even has a nice terrace with a view to reflect his presumed status in town.

  12. Helarchen Creek

    A village in the mountains southeast of the city of Dawnstar.
    Tamriel has had many villages on maps for as far back as anyone can remember. What happened to them all? Nobody really knows. This mod is simply my take on bringing one back from Elder Scrolls: Arena. Helarchen Creek was a small village in the game somewhere in the mountains near Dawnstar. Originally it appears as though Bethesda planned to put this around the Nightgate Inn, but then changed the name on that and cut the content. Some further research using old Arena maps placed the village further north anyway, so here it is.
    * Two of the NPCs can be married and will optionally share their homes with you.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  13. Whistling Mine

    A simple village expansion for Whistling Mine.
    It always seemed odd to me that an established mine with an active smelter had no place for the people there to live. Whistling Mine is cold, and inhospitable. Nobody in their right mind would actually sleep there! This mod solves that oddity by providing a small village for the 4 NPCs to live in and spend some time in. Cause who wants to spend their lives living in the mine they work in!
    It was also somewhat strange that Winterhold Hold had nothing but a single half ruined town in it.

  14. Soljund's Sinkhole

    A simple village expansion for Soljund's Sinkhole.
    Soljund's Sinkhole is another one of those places where it just seemed odd that more was not done. A mining operation that by all accounts would be thriving were it not for a draugr problem. An area that 3 people are effectively living in, with only two actually being housed, and one of whom is a marriage prospect for the player! Such cramped conditions cannot stand, and so this small expansion has been done to relieve the crowding problem.
    * Guard barracks for the guards to live in, with one extra patroller added due to the dangerous area. The jail is just for show, sorry
    * Perth can now share his house with you if you marry him.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  15. Shor's Stone

    An expansion for the village of Shor's Stone.
    Shor's Stone always seemed like a place that had more potential than what was in the game, and as it turns out, that's because it does. NPCs talk about Odfel's wrecked house and the need to build a new one, but the wreckage doesn't exist. Grelka has some scenes with the other NPCs that can never play because she never comes to the town, and may well have originally been planned for there. Plus the place always seemed a bit empty, in need of somewhere for the folks to gather at night other than just the fireplace in front of Sylgja's house. Now, all of these things have been taken care of. Shor's Stone is no longer a backwater half-village.
    * Grelka now has a home at the south end of town. She will travel between there and Riften by horse at the appropriate times.
    * The Tapped Vein, the inn, where folks gather for the town's evening meal. A subtle tribute to Elder Scrolls Online and the village's past association with Ebony mining.
    * Inn has a properly working innkeeper, server, and bard.
    * Odfel's wrecked house now exists on the north side of town. So sad.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.

  16. Open Cities Skyrim

    Open Cities Skyrim is a comprehensive project that aims to bring back at least part of the feel of Morrowind - specifically how most of the cities were a natural part of the world and you could just walk in without loading screens. The added immersion and realism goes a long way, probably a lot more than you might think. Ever wanted to ride your horse into the center of Riften? Well now you can. Need to get some help from the city guards to vanquish a foe? Run toward the gates and the guards will do their duty while you can seek safety within the walls. The town guards make for some very interesting interactions this way. This will also make running dragon battles that much more interesting since the flow of the battle won't be interrupted by the loading screen and all of the city guards can be involved at the same time.

  17. Oblivion Gates in Cities

    During the time of the Oblivion Crisis, it was said that Skyrim was hit especially hard by the Daedric invasion. Yet, a mere 200 years later there isn't a single sign of this event ever having happened anywhere. Such a monumental event in history would surely have left its mark, especially in the cities. When Martin Septim made the ultimate sacrifice to seal the barriers to Oblivion forever, this did not remove the structural components that would be left behind by suddenly having the dimensional gateway closed down without warning. While logic may suggest that the citizens of Skyrim would have done all they could to be rid of these menaces, I don't believe this would have been a top priority. Some might even have left them standing as a reminder of what almost was.
     
    This mod's purpose is simple and to the point. Each of the 5 major hold capitols has an Oblivion Gate either inside or near it. They are merely for decoration and will not be made functional in any way. They're simply there to add back the missing atmosphere that Bethesda left out. An homage to Oblivion (the game) if you will.

  18. Kynesgrove

    A simple village expansion for Kynesgrove.
    It has always bothered me to some extent that Kynesgrove gets major attention during the main quest, even with its own guard contingent, yet is nothing more than one inn and a few people in a small camp. Given that it's supposed to be an actual village, it felt like these people needed to at least have proper homes even if they are poor. So this mod aims to correct this problem by providing houses for Ganna & Gemma Uriel, and Roggi Knot-Beard while also adding a new blacksmith to round things out for the village. Now, even though they all still work the mines, they have homes to return to at night.
    The blacksmith has full investment support with the proper perk. Roggi Knot-Beard will share his house if married to you. Dravynea will share her house if married to you. All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests. LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.

  19. Karthwasten

    A simple village expansion for Karthwasten.
    Karthwasten is supposed to be a bustling mining town with two actively worked mines, yet only has a couple of buildings and too many NPCs to match. Plus it's a known lore town that's been here for at least 200 years. So this place needed a bit of an expansion to flesh it out and make it seem more like the "Karthwasten Hall" of old, in as much as Skyrim will allow for that. No more pitifully small center of mining for The Reach!
    * Each NPC now has their own home.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.

  20. Ivarstead

    A simple village expansion for Ivarstead.
    Ivarstead always seemed like it should be more to me. There are a number of people living in the inn on a permanent basis. While the game indicates it is a village in decline due to fewer and fewer visitors coming through, it's very clear that those who are in the inn now are permanent residents to the village who have fairly strong ties they can't just cut. Since it would have been lame to throw down a bunch of empty or destroyed properties, it felt only right that 3 new houses should be built for those residents to occupy.
    * Temba Wide-Arm will offer to share her house if married to you.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
    * Bonus: Golldir now has a home as well and will return to it once his quest, "Ancestral Worship", is completed. He can be married at that point and you can move in with him if you wish.

  21. Darkwater Crossing

    A simple village expansion for Darkwater Crossing.
    If Darkwater Crossing ever seemed like too many people with nowhere to live were there, you're probably right. It's major enough for Tullius to know about it to set up an ambush for Ulfric, yet there's a single house there where two people live while everyone else sits around a campfire. Not anymore! Three new houses have been added to provide accommodations for the 4 NPCs who had no place to call home.
    * Sondas Drenim will offer to share his house if married to you.
    * Derkeethus will offer to share his house if married to you, assuming you haven't recruited him into the Blades.
    * All added houses are radiant quest enabled, so you may get Companions missions and anything else that's properly configured to use NPC homes for quests.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees that account for the changes.
