About This File

This is the Skyrim Special Edition version, if you want the Normal Skyrim version then click here.

If you would like to leave me a donation I'd appreciate it.

!! Make sure the original Lakeview Manor is completely build with the upgrades you want to have (through workbenches and steward) before activating this mod or any optional files !!
!! If you start a new game or switch character you need to deactivate the mod and optional files until the Lakeview Manor is build !!

Requires Skyrim Special Edition


~~Permissions~~

  • This mod is not to be uploaded or used anywhere else, not even in mod lists, no monetary gains can ever be made from my mod, not even free donations/patreon/etc, no patches/replacers of/requiring my mod are allowed.
  • Permission is never granted to be used on websites that have a none-revocable/infinite distribution license, if a website does not grant you the ability to permanently delete your own files then don't even bother asking me.
  • I reserve the right to change/revoke these permissions at any point, you must agree to the changed permissions in the future regardless of any circumstances.
  • Any changes, use of content or translations of this mod will require my explicit permission, contact me. (you will have to agree to all the above and mention me as the original author)

 

~~Intro~~

  • This mod is all about beauty and lore friendliness, I tried to keep the exterior as simple as possible without making it feel like a castle while taking away the shortcomings of the original. It changes nothing regarding interaction of the original vanilla content, all this mod does is expand the exterior.
  • I also made the mod modular so you can choose to disable/enable certain upgrades if you want to and even install some optional files for other changes.
  • New npcs are added to give it a small town feeling and are realistic regarding their appearance, clothing and use of weaponry/spells, they also keep themselves busy with chores during the day and sleep at night.

~~Features~~

(most upgrades, except for the pool/villa/walls/watchtower, can be enabled/disabled by talking to the little dragon in the villa.)

  • Pool -- for those that fancy taking a swim, npcs will take off/on clothing when entering/exiting.
  • Wall & Gates -- north fence and a south wall with 2 gates.(gate keys in the villa chest, see picture "21 Key Location")
  • Villa -- providing beds for 5 people, info book and a small dragon on the wardrobe to disable/enable certain upgrades.
  • Watchtower -- defensible position to protect the fence.(you can train your spell/archery/weapon skills by hitting the target dummies)
  • Extra Flora -- for those that love trees/plants/farm plots, not to mention statues.
  • Fish Hatchery -- for an easy fishing time, same as the Windstad Manor's hatchery.
  • Fungal Cave -- an underground mushroom garden including little chaurus gardeners, entrance at old necromancer's altar.
  • Road -- connecting your manor to both main roads.
  • Hortus Sanctum -- greenhouse cavern including ores, insects and spriggans.
  • Apothecary -- a cave where your alchemist shop is located, including 4 beds, entrance under watchtower.
  • Prison -- tower on top of the mountain, entrance is next to your manor at the bottom of the mountain.
  • NPCs -- a merchant, blacksmith, alchemist, gardener, huntress, housemaid, necromancer, fisherman and 4 guards.
  • Vanilla Necromancer's Altar -- all items of this horrible looking altar right next to your home are disabled and replaced with a garden.
  • Improved Navmesh -- all added content has been provided with new navmeshes, npc's should follow wherever you go.
  • Optimized Exterior -- most objects that are out of your view around the manor will get disabled, this allows for less CPU to be used and a significant increase in FPS.
  • TES5EDIT Cleaned -- first cleaned automatically and then checked everything manually to make sure everything is in order.

 

~~Optional Files~~

(any of these optionals can be used without my main Lakeview_Extended.esp, they are in fact separate mods.)

  • Lakeview_Extended_BackRoom -- this replaces the backroom of the main hall with mannequins and some weapon racks.(see picture "26 Optional BackRoom_Mannequins")
  • Lakeview_Extended_Basement -- an extra bedroom in the basement with beds for 8 people.(see picture "24 Optional Basement_Bedroom")
  • Lakeview_Extended_CM -- these esp's remove unnecessary collision markers so your npcs can walk past your house, install only one .esp per wing. example: I build the kitchen yet the armory collision marker is there thus my npcs will not walk past it.(see picture "25 Optional Collision_Markers_Fix")
  • Lakeview_Extended_Grindstone_Workbench -- If you wish to remove that useless drafting table, chest, carpenters workbench - Open the console in game, select those items, type "markfordelete", save and load game - This esp will move the normal grindstone/workbench there instead.(see picture "23 Optional Grindstone_Workbench")
  • Lakeview_Extended_Interior -- stops your manor interior from resetting, I made this because I got sick of old items respawning and bumping away my own placed items.

 

~~Installation~~

(I will repeat that first yellow warning in more words here: You need to build EVERYTHING on the Lakeview Manor before activating my mod, that includes the house, wings, interiors and all the upgrades the steward provides such as cow, horse, carriage driver, chickens,...
You can choose to skip certain upgrades like interiors in case you want to use other mods for that, or cows/chickens/horse if you simply don't like those, just DON'T try to build anything anymore once my mod is enabled.
Basically you need to construct the entire manor through the bench in the exterior, then all the benches in the interiors and then the upgrades from the steward.
All of this begins if you start doing quests for the Jarl of Falkreath.
Only after this is done you should activate the mod and start upgrading through Nagra the little dragon in the villa, you can still activate/de-activate any of my upgrades through the dragon, but you should NEVER use those original benches or steward anymore.
Failing to heed my advice and activating my mod before you have that lakeview manor finished can result in the following bugs, such as not being able to buy lumber, not being able to hire a steward, not being able to advance through the "build lakeview" quests, certain original upgrades never becoming visible and the lakeview map marker not showing up.
So again, if you start a new game, DE-ACTIVATE my mod and build the original lakeview manor first!)

 

  • Always make back-up saves before trying new mods.
  • Make sure you are far away from Lakeview manor before installing.
  • Nexus Mod Manager: download the .ESP and .BSA files and activate it to install.
  • Manual: open the 7zip file, then drag and drop the .ESP and .BSA files into Skyrim's Data folder.

 

~~Uninstallation~~

  • Dismiss all potential followers from my mod, make sure none of them are actively following you.
  • Make sure you are far away from Lakeview manor before uninstalling, wait 40+ days.
  • You can deactivate and uninstall from Nexus Mod Manager, or manually delete the mod.

 

~~Compatibility~~

  • Since this mod stretches over the whole area around the manor, moving items everywhere, even altering terrain, its safe to guess that other mods in the exterior area are NOT compatible.
  • My mod does not change anything in the interior(unless you use the optional files), so you are free to use other mods for the interior as you please.
  • Compatible with DynDOLOD: obviously you cannot enable my mod until the vanilla Lakeview Manor is completely build, once you enable my mod you need to run DynDOLOD once again and make sure it includes my mod or else objects will pop in and out of existence, however DynDOLOD will not actually create LODs for the Lakeview area so you cannot see the manor (or anything else from my mod) from a large distance, for more details go look under my mod forums tab.
  • Compatible with Lakeview. Manor - As It Should Be, mod load order should be: Lakeview_Extended.esp, LKVM-Part I.esp, LKVM-Part II.esp. Read that mod's description carefully as you need to install that mod BEFORE you build the manor, as opposed to my Lakeview_Extended mod that needs to be installed AFTER you build the manor. Make sure you do not install any of my optional files that change the interior, also do not install the LKVM NoGrass optional file since that will cause landscape incompatibility in my mod

~~Troubleshooting~~

  • Dragon in the villa voice/options not appearing -- quicksave and quickload the game, then speak to him again.
  • Dragon in the villa not there -- he sometimes bugs out but you can press that tiny button on hes rock to put him back in position.
  • Enemy spiders/wolfs/bandits/giants still spawning at manor entrance -- you need to wait 40+ days far away from Lakeview so that the exterior can reset.
  • Carriage driver still sitting at old location and floating a bit in the air -- you need to wait 40+ days far away from Lakeview so that the exterior will reset.
  • Floating Grass Fix -- also try waiting a few days far away from the Lakeview exterior cell so it can reset and the grass doesn't float anymore.
  • Some people have game freezing/infinite loading screen when loading a save in the exterior or exiting the manor, removing certain upgrades like extra flora/farms/road/prison/fish hatchery helps with this.(talk to the dragon on the wardrobe in the villa.) If you are unable to get to the Villa to disable upgrades because your game freezes or CTD around the exterior, open the console and type "COC LakeviewVilla", this will directly transport you there.

~~Extra~~

  • Safe Storage -- Only use your own Manor to store your stuff, all the new interiors that I added are for the npcs. All these containers and interiors are set to respawn so they are not safe to store or drop your items. Even if you use the "no-npc version" you still can't use these new interiors to store your items.
  • To let wait time go faster, open console and type "TFC", one day will pass in a second now instead of waiting for every single hour to pass, when done type "TFC" again.
  • If you need to wait 40+ days then I suggest you open the console and type "set timescale to 300000", close the console and then do nothing for like 30 seconds, when done type "set timescale to 20".(its preferred you do this in an interior with no npcs, like Breezehome.)
  • To decorate your home, dump items on the ground, exit manor, re-enter manor, place them where you like.
  • To make your bard Llewellyn essential, type "setessential 03018DE0 1" in the console. He has a bad habit of playing the hero in every fight while dying one second later.
  • If you don't like certain items/plants/trees, you can always open the console in game, select the item, type "disable" or "markfordelete" to remove it. When using "markfordelete" you need to save and load again, but beware that the item will be gone forever, and make sure you have a backup save ready in case you deleted the wrong item. You can also use these commands to make your manor interior better by removing clutter items you otherwise cannot pick up.
  • Since my mod adds guards there is a high probability that when your spouse gets kidnapped(quest) the bandits will be in combat and die before you can open dialogue with them, this can cause a bug to occur that when after you save your spouse he/she will walk backwards all the time and generally does not follow you anymore, as if stuck in place while moon-walking. To fix this open console, select your spouse and type "recycleactor".

Any chance of knowing where the Oldrim version of this is? Currently going through my mods to update whatever needs updates and the modfile for the one I currently have of this is gone.

In the right top corner click on "downloads", then in category select "Skyrim-> houses and dwellings", its there.

Or also in right top corner type in the search field "Lakeview Extended".

Any chance of compatibility patch between this masterpiece and carriage and ferry overhaul ? I can't find it anywhere...

I have that patch but it was from Lakeview Extended 3.23 and before, v3.24 has different navmeshes and I need someone who knows how to use SSEEdit to open the patch and look if it changed any navmeshes or not, if it does not change any navmeshes then it should still be compatible, but I can't check myself so I'm not sharing it until someone can confirm this to me.

So...do you know how to use SSEEdit and check this for me?

whenever i install the mod, but before i activate it (new playthrough), vortex names the mod DELETE.  So i reinstalled my older copy and now it does the same thing.  the version numbers on both are 0.0.0.  i had my older copy installed and deactivated and have used it for several playthroughs without issue, but uninstalled it to install the newer version.  i don't understand and have never seen this before.  when i look into the esp it looks fine, all the files are named properly.  do you know what's causing this?  thanks in advance!

Vortex and Nexus are causing it, my mod is no longer on Nexus yet its still using meta-data that is supposed to be deleted but its clearly not.

This is a Nexus and Vortex issue, you should bring it up with them, all I can suggest is to not use Vortex for my mod and just manually install it.

thanks for the reply ac3s, i got it to work manually.  and arthmoor told me as much that vortex was contacting nexus looking for a deleted mod.  btw, love your mods!  yeah, i agree nexus is being a real pain, even with supposedly deleted mods.  what a mess.

I am curious to know if there is an easy way to swap the "backroom" mannequins from BYOH mannequins to generic mannequins.

I am highly invested in my character living at lakeview, but I would like to use the additional features of "mannequins improved", specifically, I want the mannequins to hold weapons.

https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/55474

It comes with a script patcher for xEdit, but the script does not recoginize BYOS mannequins for some reason.

Open the Creation Kit and make sure my mannequins backroom mod is set as active, go to one of the vanilla player homes like Breezehome, check out how that mannequin looks like and then copy paste it to Lakeview, basically replace my mannequins with the other mannequins. I hope you have at least some experience in how to use the Creation Kit though because I can easily imagine some newbie clicking on all kinds of items possibly leaving behind dirty edits. Also Lakeview is very hard to edit because its got like 9 different layers of furniture on top of each other, so you would have to carefully select stuff and hide it before you can even see what your doing and then begin replacing stuff.

here are some tips:

--CREATION KIT KEYBINDINGS--
SHIFT - rotate around object.
SPACEBAR - move map with mouse.
V - slowly zoom on object while moving mouse.
F5 - reload cell.
1 - press twice to make object invisible.
ALT+1 - make all invisible object re-appear.
CTRL+F4 - extract facegendata for selected characters. (prevent grey face bug)
2 - open scale change on x, y, z for objects.
A - create a navmesh after selecting 3 other navmesh dots.
CTRL+F - search for navmesh errors.
F - Place object on ground.
SHIFT+W - toggle water on and off.

And the Lakeview interior's name starts with BYOH and then something else, but type that in the search field to easily find it.

I updated to AE not realizing it would mess up one of my favorite mods. I makes to cellar bedroom unusable because of an added corridor. I could not use the extra bedroom, but I really like having it. Is there a way I can fix this? Or do I have to wait for an update to the mod?

On the left side of the screen is the ladder leading back to the main house. The corridor is a place for the aquariums.

Well thats nice of Bethesda, changing worldspaces in their 10 year old game fully knowing there are mods already changing every aspect...

Skyrim AE comes with like a paid mod collection right? So perhaps its one of those new mods you downloaded and perhaps you can disable that mod? I don't have AE so I really don't know how it works or what made this corridor change.(if its a mod and you find out which one do please let me know)

But regardless, the "basement_bedroom" is a separate mod from "Lakeview_Extended" so my main mod should still work just fine, I suggest you simply don't use the basement_bedroom.esp file because clearly with this new corridor that isn't going to work, and I don't play Skyrim anymore, plus I don't have AE, so I'm not going to be able to patch this, at this point I don't even know why I would bother to keep patching things if Bethesda endlessly keeps changing their game.

Best you can hope for is someone else patches it and then contacts me so I can upload the file here (never on Nexus), but that would either mean moving my bedroom to a new area or removing/moving the aquarium, for now though you should just not use my bedroom.

Sorry but after so many years its really up to other people to mod a little bit, I thought the mod was finished and perfect but Bethesda keeps changing stuff and endlessly re-releasing Skyrim...

Chances are its one of those paid mods .esp file though, or Creation Club or whatever its called, I doubt they would actually change their master.esm files like this.

It didn't buy AE. The only thing I would pay for is an upgrade to fix save bloat. The 1.6 update made the changes. One of the things it added was fishing from creation club. It's stupid, If I wanted to fish on my computer I'd buy a fishing game. I know there used to be a way to not use the creation club stuff, but that seems to be another of the things Bethesda got rid of.

I was afraid you'd say that about not using the basement part of the mod. I like to have my family at Lakeview. Since I can't stomach seeing the kids living on the streets I have the unlimited adoption mod. Oh well, guess I'll just have to add children bedrooms to other houses.

I don't spend much time on Nexus anymore. They have driven away too many good modders, which is too bad because it used to be a "one-stop shop"

I wasn't even going to install anything for Lakeview, since its really not that far from whiterun, and I already have a pretty heavy mod list.... but damned if I don't love the look of this place... I will be installing and using it!

Hadn't used Lakeview for years. Started using recently and then found this! Never going to use any other primary house. Awesome! 

Really like the extra NPCs and campus approach.

I managed to get a pretty impressive set-up at Lakeview thanks to this mod and a couple of others combined.  I did not like the place one bit until I thought I would go through all the available mods to see what I could come up with.  If you do an update, you may consider adding these other mods to make yours one HUGE feature for Lakeview that turns it into something special.  I have included these: Drcos Hearthfire Homes Exterior, Hearthfire custom basements, Hearthfire Extended with Aquarium patch, Hearthfire Shreines expanded, improved Hearthfire lighting, Lakeview Extended SE that cuilds fort around property and New Hearthfires engl version.  If you remove all other mods for Lakeview and use just theses ones there are no conflicts, you still get extra cellar rooms as well as the aquarium and an amazing outside, windows beautified and the beatiful work from Lakeview Extended.  The only other one I would have like would have been Lakeview how it should be but it is not compatible.  Thats a shame because I detest the interior of the place and only have it now in my top list because of these mods!

"Lakeview.Manor - As it Should be" is actually highly compatible with my mod, but that mod I think requires you to never build anything on the vanilla Lakeview manor, then install that mod, and then you need to install my mod. Only thing I noticed that was a slight incompatibility was the exit from the cellar in the exterior.

But if you want to use that mod you need to know in advance, once your at a point where you already build things on the vanilla Lakeview manor you can't use that mod anymore, unless you go back to a previous savegame.

My mod (Lakeview Extended) does not require you to build everything on the vanilla manor, it states "original Lakeview Manor is completely build with the upgrades you want to have", so you need to build the vanilla manor(or not) but once you use my mod you can't ever touch that vanilla build system again, but the other mod adds everything inside of the manor to begin with and requires you to not touch ANYTHING on the vanilla build system.

Or at least thats how I think it goes, its been many years, but read the instruction on either mine or the other mods description to know all details.

I actually mention this other mod in my "compatibility" section with what you need to do.

Hy! Is this compatible with the Anniversagy upgrade update 1.6? 

Can I have here sleeping 6 children in bed?

Edit 3: Yes, this mod does not modify anything interior. They can sleep, but housecarl Rayya or one child cant sleep, because there is only 6 bed not seven. I used My home is your home mod, and now Rayya is sleeping outside, behind the house, where the pool is with a bar with bed. If I see this correct, none of the npc-s are using this bed. And I picked the Azura Shrine's follower woman (not remember her name) to the alchemy section (door is in the big building nearby the training area),  because after the quest she mentioned she wont have more visions from Azura and she is now lonely, would like to follow me if I want, moreover she is sleeping in a camp in a cold place. There was always a free bed during the night, so now she sleeps here. If I am correct, there is always one free bed in the guest/farm house too during the night, so maybe I can command one other follower to sleep there.

This is the greatest mod I know, unfortunately I cant use Lakeview Manor as is it should be mod because I already built the house, and didnt find any other mod which would be compatible with Anniversay Lakeview Manor interior. But I think the manor was OK, only the exterior needed excatly the same thing which you added!! Congrats for this perfect work!

Maybe the only thing would be good is to add some free bed for custom followers in the farm house, or underground, or anywhere else. Maybe an optional follower's tower instead of prison? 

 

Lakeview_Extended_Basement -- an extra bedroom in the basement with beds for 8 people.(see picture "24 Optional Basement_Bedroom")" - actually, where can I found this mod you mentioned? - Edit3: No, Anniversary upgrade unfortunately have fish tanks here. I recommend for everyone do not build fish tanks. They are good for nothing, and none comes here to watch them.

This is such a good mod making lakeview so much beautiful. Unfortunately, I decided to uninstall it due to compatibility issues. Shame the author does not allow patches

Hy! You mentioned some mods. Does any of this contain extra beds for some custom follower?
