  1. 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.
    * LOD has been generated for the area, including trees, that account for the changes.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.

  4. Gildergreen Regrown

    Danica asked you for sap from the Eldergleam to revive the dead Gildergreen in Whiterun. Instead, Maurice convinced you to bring back a sapling. All is now well in Whiterun, except for one small thing. That sapling deserves to grow into a nice big healthy proper replacement for the dead tree you helped get rid of.
    For those who followed the path of renewal in Blessings of Nature, but missed out on seeing the full size live tree in all its glory, this mod is for you. Now you don't have to choose the path of violence and destruction if you don't want to. Your sapling will now grow over the course of 6 in-game months from a tiny bud into a full bloom tree you and the city can be proud of.
    Kynareth shall smile on you for your kind ways.

  5. ESO Skyshards

    Long ago, during the second era in the time of the Planemeld, adventurers sought out whatever power they could gain to aid in their battle against Molag Bal. Among these items of power were Skyshards, presumably made available by the gods for those who were dedicated to exploring both the hidden and mundane corners of Tamriel. Not much is truly known about them, but in these trying times of dragons and civil war, the Skyshards have once again appeared for the Last Dragonborn to discover and augment his power.
    ESO Skyshards places several shards throughout the province of Skyrim, including Dawnguard areas and Solstheim. Much like the ones from ESO itself, once you collect 3, you will earn 1 perk point to spend as you see fit. There are 6 in each section, for a total of 66 shards amounting to 22 extra perk points. That may seem like a lot, but by the time you've found them all you'll likely be pretty high level anyway so it balances out in the end. Sorry, beyond the 3 screenshots displayed for the mod, I will not reveal the locations of all of the shards. They do not have map markers either, and there are no plans to provide any. They are located in a mix of easy areas and hard areas so they should prove to be quite a challenge to locate.
    This mod will go especially well with mods that expand the number of perks you can use as well as perk overhauls that expand the number of points required to obtain perks.

  6. Dragon Claw Stands

    A simple mod to provide display stands for your dragon claws.
    People like to display their collectibles in their homes. I am no different, but I've always wanted a way to do the same with the dragon claw keys used on the Nord ruin puzzle doors one they're of no use anymore. It always seemed silly to just toss them in a chest and forget about them since they're among the more unique things about the game. So the idea came up to make a display stand for the claws, but not just any display stand. One that was somewhat unique and fitting with their style and purpose. Thanks to some help from the folks at AFK Mods, this is now a reality
    Each vanilla player home, as well as the 3 Hearthfire homes, and Severin Manor in Raven Rock, now have display stands in various numbers. Simply have one or more of the claws in your inventory and activate the stand. If you have only one, it will be automatically displayed. If you have more than one, it will ask you which one you want to display, in much the same way the Paragon Gem platform in Falmer Valley does with Paragon Gems. If you should want it back for some reason, simply activate the stand a second time and it will be returned to your inventory.
    Under the hood, the mod takes the claw from your inventory, puts it into a hidden chest, and then places a clone of it in the visible world. When the claw is removed from the stand, the original copy in the chest is placed into your inventory and the clone is deleted to ensure there is no save bloating from creating multiple claws repeatedly. This is done in case the claw is marked in a quest alias somewhere so that the alias is not disrupted.
    Not all houses can display every claw due to limited space. Severin Manor is the only one with enough space to hold all 10 in the same cell. The Hearthfire houses split them up between the Main Hall and the basement, and all of the vanilla houses can only hold some. For example, Breezehome only has room for 4, while Proudspire Manor can hold up to 7. The placement of the stands are also tied to certain room upgrades, except for Severin Manor where they all get enabled once the player owns the property.
    As an added bonus, if other mods add more dragon claws, they can be added to the formlist used to track the vanilla game claws. All they would need is a script to access the formlist and add their base object to that list. The only condition is you would need to be sure the mod added claw is the only one in your inventory when you want to place it. This is due to limitations on how the menu works when asking for a claw.

  7. 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.
    * 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.

  8. Dolmen Ruins

    In 2E 582, Molag Bal launched an all out invasion against Nirn. His aim was to merge Nirn with Coldharbor in a cataclysmic event that came to be known as the Planemeld. This was accomplished through the use of numerous Dark Anchors, or Dolmens, scattered around Tamriel (and presumably elsewhere too) that were to physically drag Nirn into Coldharbor. It was only through the heroic actions of one known as The Vestige that Molag Bal's plans were thwarted and all of Nirn saved from a gruesome end as soulless slaves. Though history does not record these events, the ruins themselves have survived. Adventurers have to this day reported many are guarded by daedra, others by the undead, and some by unnatural abominations of the wilds.
    This mod aims to bring a bit of ESO lore to Skyrim by adding 12 inactive Dolmens around Skyrim, all in relatively remote areas. This is primarily just for show but several have enemies to fight as well so you can use them to acquire some of the harder to find Daedric ingredients. Explore Skyrim, and you should run into them soon enough. Don't be lazy, go out and look!

  9. 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.

  10. Dawnguard Map Markers

    Adds map markers to the Soul Cairn and to the Forgotten Vale. The markers must still be discovered, but once they are, can be used as fast travel points.
     
    The Soul Cairn gets the added bonus of now accessing the overhead map like you would see for Skyrim.

  11. 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 accomodations 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.

  12. Cutting Room Floor

    From the depths of the ether, or just the cutting room floor, comes forth several NPCs, some quests, and other miscellaneous content which was created but never implemented in the game. If ever you had the feeling that Skyrim was missing something, you were probably right! This mod should relieve a bit of that. Villages that were supposed to exist have been brought back. Quests that were partially implemented have been completed. Various items have been restored that were still in the data files. NPCs have been brought back to the game and given homes where appropriate. Plus plenty of other random bits of stuff that was mentioned in the game but didn't exist yet.
    NPCs were implemented using the list available on the UESP: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unused_NPCs
    Unimplemented quests were seeded by the following list on UESP: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unfinished_Quests
    Some unimplemented items have been added from the following UESP list: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Unobtainable_Items

  13. Castle Volkihar Rebuilt

    A mod to allow the player to clean up the debris and rebuild Castle Volkihar to its former glory. The North Tower is also converted into a player home with safe storage.
    After the Dawnguard quest line is over, have you ever wondered why nobody bothers to rebuild Castle Volkihar? Harkon may have been an obsessive lazy vampire, but that doesn't mean you need to be! Now you can rebuild the castle as you see fit, whether you're a vampire lord yourself and just want the stinking mess cleaned up, or a member of the Dawnguard seeking to expand into a new base and occupy some new territory.
    At several locations throughout the Main Hall, Volkihar Ruins, Volkihar Courtyard, the Undercroft, and the docks behind the castle will be rubble piles or debris columns you can use to clean up the area around them. You'll need a pickaxe to do so, but that's it. After that all you need is the patience to see things through.
    If you are playing as a vampire, your existing vampire minions will continue to provide their normal functions, just in a much cleaner environment. After all, what are we? Vampires or slovenly trolls? To clear the path to the Courtyard, speak to Garen Marethi as usual.
    If you're playing as the Dawnguard, cleaning up rooms in the main guildhall area will bring in new Dawnguard members to man the stations that the vampires used to. The blacksmith, apothecary, and vendor will offer services appropriate to Dawnguard members. Ownership of the various castle cells will also be marked properly so you won't get accused of stealing the stuff you fought so hard to take. As a small added bonus, Fort Dawnguard will get cleaned up properly too. No more cobwebs lurking about!
    If playing as the Dawnguard, Serana can now be directed to move into the castle and use her cleaned up room by lighting the candle on the corner of her nightstand (the one with the cloth mat). When the flames are lit, she will stay at the castle when dismissed. If they are out, she will stay at Fort Dawnguard. This candle will be lit permanently if playing for the vampires to indicate she stays there when dismissed. As an added bonus, she will make full use of the entire cell in either location, instead of just being narrowly restricted to the main hall areas.
    Valerica's Study and the hallway outside that leads down to the secret fireplace passage will clean up when you go to the Soul Cairn to tell her Harkon is dead. Best to let the senior vampire handle her own affairs
    Clearing the North Tower attached to the Courtyard provides a player home with safe storage, 3 mannequins, some weapon racks, 3 bookshelves, and a place to sleep too. Be aware though that the North Tower is the ONLY room you can clear out where storage is safe.

  14. Bring Out Your Dead

    Bring Out Your Dead is a simple yet immersive mod which expands on the number of graves given to the unique NPCs in areas of the game that don't currently have them. Solitude, Windhelm, Whiterun, Riften, and Markarth all have a Hall of the Dead that contains coffins and urns for various unique NPCs who live there. Their items are transferred to their assigned coffin when they die. The smaller cities of Falkreath, Morthal, Dawnstar, and Winterhold do not have these facilities, and neither do the other smaller villages and towns. NPCs living on farms outside the major hold capitols don't get buried in their Hall of the Dead either. This mod aims to correct this and provide for more uniform handling of everyone's dead.
    Falkreath and Morthal both have graveyards already and have been expanded slightly to hold more. Dawnstar and Winterhold now have their own Halls of the Dead just outside of town. The smaller villages all have space set aside for new graveyards. NPCs living on farms immediately outside the 5 major hold capitols will be given appropriate burial space in the Hall of the Dead for their city if they don't already have it.
    NPCs marked as essential will not be given a grave since they cannot be killed normally unless the game removes that flag as the result of a completed quest.
    Installation Requirements
    Official Skyrim patch 1.9.32.0.8 or greater.
    Official Dawnguard DLC.
    Official Hearthfire DLC.
    Official Dragonborn DLC.

  15. Bee Hives

    Ever wonder where Honningbrew Meadery gets their honey? Bet you never quite gave it much thought, figuring it had to come from somewhere. The only problem is that the sole source of honey is at Golden Glow Estate and you know Maven isn't likely to give that up. This little mod takes care of the issue by making some room in front of the Honningbrew Boilery for 5 bee hives. That's it. Simple.

  16. Arthmoor's Skyrim Villages - All In One

    An all in one package for all of my villages released for Skyrim Legendary Edition.
    This package contains all 11 of the village mods I have released for Skyrim in one single package. It's been a popular request for some time and since I am no longer doing mods for Legendary Edition it seemed like as good a time as any to put this package together.
    The following villages are included: Darkwater Crossing, Dawnstar, Dragon Bridge, Helarchen Creek, Ivarstead, Karthwasten, Keld-Nar, Kynesgrove, Shor's Stone, Soljund's Sinkhole, and Whistling Mine.
    Combine features of this package include:
    * 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.
    * Dawnstar NPCs all have their own homes and will no longer live their lives in the mines.
    * Two NPCs in Helarchen Creek can be married and will share their homes with you.
    * Temba Wide-Arm will offer to share her house if married to you.
    * 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.
    * Karthwasten NPCs all have their own homes now and will no longer crowd into a single barracks building.
    * Custom village of Kel-Nar in Eastmarch will all new NPCs, including a Dark Elf child.
    * Roggi Knot-Beard will share his house if married to you.
    * Dravynea will share her house if married to you.
    * Grelka will share her new house in Shor's Stone if married to you. She will also travel from the village back to Riften to run her shop during the week.
    * Shor's Stone has a new custom inn which is an Easter Egg from Elder Scrolls Online, with full rent support and their own bard.
    * Odfel's wrecked house now exists on the north side of Shor's Stone. So sad.
    * Perth can now share his house with you if you marry him.
    * Soljund's Sinkhole now has a 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
    * New housing for the miners who live in Whistling Mine. No more sleeping and eating in a freezing cave.
    * All added shopkeepers have investment support.
    * 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 every area, including trees that account for the changes.
    * Bug fixes and other updates that were applied to the SSE versions since December 2017 have also been added.

  17. Ars Metallica - Smithing Enhancement

    The crafting system is one of Skyrim's better features, but for thieves and archers, there's not much use for the system. Light armor is dead easy to come by in already finished forms, but arrows can sometimes be scarce in the types you may want. Lockpicks have been known to be somewhat scarce too, yet are relatively basic to construct.
    Ars Metallica aims to fill in some of the basic issues I had with the crafting system by doing the following:
    For vanilla Skyrim:
    Allow archers to forge their own arrows out of the various ore materials, wood, leather strips, and feathers. Indirectly making it somewhat useful to chop wood too. Allow thieves to make their own lockpicks out of iron or steel. Provide skill advancement for the use of the smelter to melt down ore. After all, that's as important as knowing how to shape it once refined. Provide skill advancement for the use of the tanning rack to make leather. That's far more important in my mind than the skill advances from using the leather to make stuff. Provide for a small amount of skill advancement from mining the ore itself out of ore veins. Provide the ability to melt down existing pieces of armor and some clutter items into ingots so that you can then use those ingots to make missing pieces of a set if you want. Allow members of factions to forge equipment appropriate to their guild. Thieves can make guild armor. Assassins can make Brotherhood armor. Legionnaires can make Imperial armor, and so on. For Dawnguard:
    Modifies the dragonbone arrow recipes and the crossbow bolt recipes to conform to the same formulas as vanilla. Disabled Dawnguard's native recipes. For Hearthfire:
    Provides smithing experience for using the various workbenches used to construct your homes. The drafting table does not count since nothing is actually built using it. For Dragonborn:
    Modifies the stalhrim and nordic arrow recipes to conform to the same formulas as the vanilla arrows. Adds smelting formulas to recover ore from stalhrim and nordic carved equipment. Adds crafting feathers to the Felsaad Tern. Note that all smelting of metals requires that you know the perk associated with that metal. For example, if you wish to smelt Dwemer scrap, you need to know the Dwemer Smithing perk first. This applies not just to smelting existing goods but also to smelting raw ore. This isn't a bug, it's a feature.

  18. Alternate Start - Live Another Life

    Misery and despair have haunted you all your life. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, you've been arrested and thrown in the dungeons. Your trial was supposed to be weeks ago, only nobody has come for you. It's been so long since seeing daylight you no longer know what month it is anymore. The dungeon is cold, damp, and worse still, you're running out of food. At least you have that leak in the wall for water. It seems as though you've been forgotten, soon to rot away and die. The eight have forsaken you! Or... have they?
    Live Another Life provides an alternative means to start the game for those who do not wish to go through the lengthy intro sequence at Helgen. You will be given the opportunity to choose your race and then choose a new life for your character to lead. A wide variety of choices will be available. What you choose will have a lasting impact, so choose carefully or the gods may forsake you again!
    Additional support has also been provided to allow you to extend Live Another Life with your own starts.
    Check out the video review GamerPoets did for his first episode:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi5AU8yCry0
    Live Another Life Bug Tracker
    Installation Requirements
    Official Skyrim patch 1.9.32.0.8 or greater. Using earlier game versions will result in CTDs and other problems. Just don't.
    Official Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn DLCs are required.
    Use of the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch is STRONGLY recommended.
    You will need to turn on subtitles to see the text for the startup quest.
    Alternately, download and use Fuz Ro D-oh - Silent Voice to see subtitles only on those NPCs with no voiced audio. This requires SKSE.
    Installation - Wrye Bash BAIN
    Drop the archive into your Skyrim Mods\Bash Installers folder, then install as usual.
    Make sure the mod is active in the Wrye Bash mods tab.
    Installation - Manual
    Drop Alternate Start - Live Another Life.esp, Alternate Start - Live Another Life.bsa, and Alternate Start - Live Another Life.ini into your Data folder.
    Activate the mod using whatever management tool suits you.
    Uninstalling Live Another Life
    Due to the nature of Skyrim mods, especially those adding scripts, it is strongly discouraged to attempt uninstalling a mod from your active game. Any mod that is more than pure mesh or texture replacements has the possibility to leave behind permanent changes to your save that you may not want. This is not something modders can correct for. It is how the game was designed by Bethesda. No support will be provided for anyone who uninstalls this mod from an active game and continues on with that save.
    That said, should you insist on going forward with doing so you must adhere to the following:
    First things first. You need to be sure the main quest has been started before you can uninstall this mod. The quest "Live Another Life" must have been marked as completed, AND you must have "Before the Storm" listed in your journal. Uninstalling prior to this will break the main quest as well as the civil war.
    It should also go without saying that if you're using the farmhouse start, clean your stuff out of it first because if you don't you'll lose it all.
    Clean your stuff out of any other start location containers you may be using, including any that are part of the vanilla game because they will NO LONGER BE SAFE STORAGE!!!
    Once that's done, use your preferred method to uninstall the mod. The .esp, .bsa, and ini files must be removed entirely.
    Steam Workshop users should be sure to unsubscribe before doing this or the launcher will simply replace those files again.
    Load Order
    Due to the sensitive nature of the mod, it should be loaded relatively late in the load order. A lot of other mods may seek to make modifications to Helgen and the charactergen quests. Moving this further down in your list will likely help, a lot. I highly recommend going with the order LOOT specifies.
    Starting the Main Quest
    Skyrim has a lot more flexibility in pursuit of the main quest, even when playing the default Helgen scenario. Alduin's appearance does not force one to pursue the main quest beyond Helgen. So this mod is mainly providing a mechanism to bypass Helgen and not encounter Alduin either. The game will patiently wait for you to follow along. So there's no special effort really needed to avoid it, just don't do it
    For most of the starts, it will appear as though your "Live Another Life" quest has stalled. You will not have an active objective telling you where to go next. When you are ready to begin pursuing the main quest, talk to an innkeeper and ask them for rumors. You'll be given a generic rumor about Helgen and told to travel there. You can also simply go to Helgen on your own without anyone telling you to do so.
    The main quest will also start if you join the Civil War, complete the first two missions for your chosen side, and then get sent to Whiterun. Once there, you'll find Whiterun closed. If you manage to bribe or persuade your way in, the next guard you pass by who delivers the line about Helgen being hit by a dragon will resolve the beginning portion. Otherwise asking them what they mean by dragons will get you pointed toward Helgen and you can proceed from there.
    If you somehow avoid all the guards and get into Dragonsreach without ever hearing about Helgen, the MQ will be force-started upon entering the main hall. Sorry, but this failsafe is required because it is not possible to advance the Civil War until Bleak Falls Barrow and Dragon Rising have been completed. Bethesda did not supply dialogue to allow for a Stormcloak takeover of Whiterun before starting the Main Quest.
    Choosing the campsite start will begin immediately with the encounter with Alduin.
    Using this mod to follow the default Helgen sequence will play out the same as the vanilla game.
    Extensions
    As of version 2.5.0 and higher, Live Another Life allows for extensions to be written to provide additional starting options. This is a known list of extensions that are available:
    City Guard - the example extension provided on the Nexus page for LAL.
    Legacy of the Dragonborn - An extension to allow you start as a relic hunter for the mod's museum in Solitude.
    Death Alternative - Alternate Start Addon - Various options to start as a slave and/or captive.
    Salmon Shack - LAL Version - Start option utilizing MannyGT's Salmon Shack.
    New Beginnings - Several new start options using the extension framework.
    Compatibility Patches
    Starting Spell Choice
    Compatibility
    Tested and confirmed to work with Open Cities Skyrim.
    Known to be incompatible with any mod which attempts to remove the essential flags from any NPCs in Helgen.
    Song of Ice and Skyrim causes the game to get stuck loading the prison cell, regardless of load order.
    Descent Into Madness causes the game to get stuck loading the prison cell, regardless of load order.
    The Oblivion Racial Bonuses module from Occupy Skyrim is not compatible since OCS OSR.esp alters MQ101.
    Sellswords is not compatible because it alters MQ101 to be able to offer its alternative game mode.
    The Forsworn Legacy - Use the "Savegame Version" and delete Data\Scripts\QF_MQ101_0003372B.pex after installing it. DO NOT USE the "new game" version as it will not work with my mod.
    Helgen Reborn � Previously required a lockout for the vanilla start. As of Helgen Reborn 105.3 this is no longer the case and all start options are now fully compatible.
    Return to Helgen (by Giskard) - This mod is only partially compatible with LAL. If you plan to use them together, you must trigger the events at Helgen BEFORE venturing to the city of Solitude. Going to Solitude before Helgen will completely break the chain of events and render the MQ unstartable, as well as potentially disrupting the Civil War permanently. Starts in or immediately near Solitude will be disabled in LAL as long as Return to Helgen is installed.
    Morskom Estate - Previously required a lockout for the vanilla start option. This is no longer the case with Morskom 1.3 and above. All start options are now compatible.
    Shlongs of Skyrim (ugh, yes, there really is a mod about that) - This has been reported to completely mess up the cart ride for the vanilla start option. If you're going to use that mod, it is best to wait until you're off the carts and inside the keep before installing it.
    Become High King of Skyrim - Edits MQ101, though it's a dirty edit. Either clean the mod using TES5Edit or make sure it loads BEFORE Live Another Life so that it won't cause the "new game" menu to get stuck.
    Better Vampires - No issues should arise from using LAL and BV together. Even the vampire start should work properly as the method LAL uses to change you into one uses script calls BV retains in its edited version of the player's vampire quest.
    Pirates of the Pacific - Has been reported several times to cause the player to spawn somewhere completely off the map. It is not currently known what causes this as it really shouldn't be possible.
    Buy_Whiterun3 - The optional "New Start" file has been confirmed incompatible because it modified the MQ101 quest scripts. Do not install the optional file.
    Reclamation Legacy Armor - This mod, now obsoleted by an update, had a patrol package edited that should not have been which would cause Alduin to get stuck in Helgen. The renamed version of the mod, "Reclamations Morrowind Style" no longer has this problem.
    Requiem - Has several ITMs, one of which touches MQ101 and will interfere with my changes to the quest. MQ102 is also edited and will block necessary changes. Move Requiem above LAL in your load order. Cleaning alone will not resolve the issue.
    Mods altering the Abandoned Prison (cell 00021594) will probably need to be patched since the navmesh has been edited.
    Mods which alter the following quests will not be compatible without a patch:
    MQ101 - Unbound
    MQ102 - Before the Storm
    DialogueWhiterunGuardGateStop - Guard who stops you at the Whiterun city gate.
    WERoad01 - Farmer refugees after dragon attack
    Mods which edit the following scripts will not be compatible unless patched:
    dunPostHelgenEnableScript
    QF_MQ101_0003372B
    QF_MQ102_0004E50D
    QF_DialogueWhiterunGuardGateS_000D1984

    Known Issues
    The Thane offer won't be available in every city right away if you use a property owner start. The quest interaction makes doing so impossible without sacrificing too much of the content to it.
    When picking the Companions guild start, you need to go watch the fight before Vlikas will go outside to train you.
    When choosing one of the two civil war starts, you are strongly advised to let the Jagged Crown scene play out. If you don't, the quest may fail to start and the entire civil war quest line will get jammed.
    There may be some unfound dialogue that references Helgen. If you find some and have NOT witnessed Alduin fly overhead yet, please report those with as much detail as possible.
    Some quests in a major city you pick a start for may not be available until after you've left that city and returned later. This is normal. It's due to how "Change Location" events work in the game and there's nothing that can be done about it.
    If you pick the ship arrival start for Raven Rock, the mouse is not being locked down for some reason when the function is called to run the animated ship ride. No know solution for this exists as of yet. Avoid moving the mouse. It will disrupt the scene, even though the boat will arrive properly. It just looks goofy as hell.
    Troubleshooting
    Nothing happened. I tried to start a new game and ended up going to Helgen. Again.
    Make sure the mod is actually activated. Even if your mod manager tells you it is. NMM is notorious for lying to its users, claiming a mod is active, but in reality it isn't. Check with Wrye Bash, or with the official game launcher, to be sure that the mod really is active.
    Help! I'm stuck at the main menu starting a new game!
    Skyrim version 1.9.32.0.8 or greater is REQUIRED for this mod. Be sure you're using that first. Update through Steam if necessary. Older versions of the game are not supported.
    Mods that make large scale blanket changes to either essential flags or quest item flags may be blocking you from playing.
    Check the Data\Scripts folder and make sure there are no copies of the following files:
    dunPostHelgenEnableScript, QF_MQ101_0003372B, QF_MQ102_0004E50D, TIF__0005A6A6, TIF__0005A6B1, TIF__000D50CA, TIF__000D50DB, TIF__000D50E0, TIF__000D197B, TIF__000D660D, or TIF__000E2D03.
    If these files are present, they will break the quest controls for Live Another Life. You'll need to figure out which packages installed these since they would only come from mods. Skyrim's own
    files are in Bethesda's BSAs and get overridden by the ones in my BSA.
    Verify its placement in load order. This mod should be loaded near the end of the list, not the beginning. LOOT has it placed appropriately and should be used if you are in doubt.
    Dude, there's a pole in my face. Why did you not move it?
    This is a commonly mentioned problem that's caused by using Enhanced Character Edit alongside starting with LAL. It is not a problem with this mod, and it's unknown exactly why ECE does the camera thing the way it does.
    It's not something I feel I should be responsible for fixing since I have not caused this to happen.
    Your mod is broken, it says my save can't be updated! You need to fix that!
    Actually, no, it's not broken. Upgrading a save when you're still in the prison cell is not supported, never has been, and is a source of bugs. The message telling you to start a new game was added to make sure people are aware of this. Do not attempt to continue on with your game in this state as it WILL cause you problems.
    No. I do not need to fix anything. You need to break yourself of bad habits.
    The game instantly CTDs when trying to talk to Mara. Why do you make such buggy mods man?
    Once again, this one is not actually due to something I've done. The problem actually comes from certain OTHER mods that have done dialogue options that cause some problems with "talking activator" objects. Mara is one such object. The fact that you're getting this problem here is merely a coincidence and you'd have run into it again elsehwere, like during the Molag Bal quest. So Mara has done you a favor in her infinite wisdom.
    The 2 most common causes of this are:
    1. Having an old version of the Sofia follower mod installed.
    2. Having version 4.0 of the Vilja mod installed.
    These problems can be fixed by updating those mods to their current versions where the authors have addressed the issue in their mods. There may be other mods with the same problem but they have not been brought to light yet.
    Emma explains the problem in more detail here: https://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/topic/565358-live-another-life/page-975#entry20667239
    The game crashes whenever I use the bed! Don't tell me this isn't your fault either.
    Surprise! It's not my fault either.
    The only known cause for this is using a body mod with a mismatched skeleton that's not compatible with it. When the bed is used, your character gets stripped of the prison clothing and your new equipment is added based on what you started as. It is this process that causes the issue when a skeleton mod that doesn't match the body is used. Something to do with bones the body mod is looking for that the skeleton doesn't have. Oddly enough, this tends to only happen on female characters. I have no idea why that is.
    If this just confused the shit out of you, you're not alone. I don't use body mods. The only advice I can offer is to contact the authors of the body mod you're using and find out if it's compatible with the skeleton you're using. Trust me, you'll know if you're not using the vanilla skeleton because it requires installing one separately.
    Again, since I don't know body mods, it's possible you just need to be sure that if the body mod comes with one that you're using that instead of something else.
    The game crashes when I try to go outside. Admit it, you suck at this!
    Heh, nope, not me either
    There are sporadic reports about this issue coming up occasionally. The best information I currently have on this is that it could be due to a certain version of ENB that's installed, or some bad configuration in the ENB on any version. Since this doesn't happen consistently (which I attribute to not everyone using ENB) there's not much else to go on.
    If this is happening to you, try running the game without ENB and see what happens. If it works, you have your culprit. You would have run into issues with the game regardless of using LAL or not.
    The Live Another Life quest never finishes, it's stuck in my journal.
    Not exactly. The quest remains active because it's necessary for it to do so. Go speak to an innkeeper to pick up on it. Any properly configured innkeeper will have a rumors topic that should get things started.
    My quest will close out when you've spoken to the Jarl in Whiterun about being in Helgen.
    General Tullius and Ulfric Stormcloak are missing. You broke my game!
    You are using an old version of the mod. Upgrade to verson 3.1.0 or later and make sure you aren't getting any script errors with the patch script that updates things.
    Also make sure you're not trying to upgrade while still in the prison cell as that will not work.
    I found your burned up corpse and clicked on it, but nothing happens.
    This isn't quite the problem it used to be since all you'll be missing out on is the journal, which is a good read, but not critical to anything.
    If it simply refuses to work, just skip it and either go to the cave, or go to Whiterun.
    OK, I did that, then went to the cave, but nothing is there.
    The quest marker isn't GPS accurate. You should be able to easily spot two poor hapless souls on the ground, doubled over in pain. That's Hadvar and Ralof. Go talk to one.
    If you have already been told about the Jagged Crown, Hadvar and Ralof will no longer be present in the cave as their story lines no longer call for them to be anywhere near Helgen.
    No, you don't get it! A whole bunch of pieces in the Helgen cave have gone missing. What have you done!
    It wasn't me! No, really, chances are this was the fault of TESVSnip.
    As of version 2.0 of Live Another Life, causes for this are coming from other mods that have likely also been run through TESVSnip.
    That program has turned out to be dangerous and cause data loss due to improper handling of compressed record data.
    If you are having trouble with this problem (commonly referred to as "blue voids") check the readmes of your mods for mention of TESVSnip, sometimes simply referred to as Snip.
    Remove those mods first. Check the cave. You'll likely find the problem has resolved itself.
    Only the mod's author can correct these issues, and they'll need to do it by rebuilding their work without using TESVSnip on the files.
    Whiterun's map markers are missing! I need those!
    They're not missing. They're just turned off. When the time comes in either the main quest or the civil war to approach Whiterun, those map markers will be off. Simply walk up to the city gates and let the guard stationed there confront you. Once you gain entry to the city the map markers will be turned back on.
    Please DO NOT console your way around them. You will be likely to break something. Efforts have been made to close possible loopholes but intentionally sabotaging them by using the console is not one of those loopholes that can be accounted for. Just don't.
    The guard at the Whiterun gate won't walk up to talk to me. What gives?
    If the guard does not walk up to you, it's quite possible you've spoken to him recently. Walk over and talk to him and everything should proceed as normal.
    Ulfric is naked, you pervert!
    Well the ladies like him th.... no wait.
    This issue has been reported on occasion to occur in conjunction with Immersive Armors.
    Immersive Armors has a toggle switch within its MCM menu that should resolve this problem while using an alternate start mod.
    I walked by the farmhouse and the game crashed.
    Update your game. This is a legacy issue caused by using a version of Skyrim that's too old.
    Options Available
    Choose from one of the many options to start your character. As more ideas are fleshed out, this list will grow.
    Caught Crossing the Border Illegally
    For those who wish to use this to play through the original game start at Helgen, this option will streamline the process to skip the race selection dialogue during the lead up to your execution. All of the tutorial prompts will be removed as well.
    Escape My Cell
    You've been left to die, forgotten, in a damp, dark cell. All you really want is a second chance - to escape! Fortunately, Mara has taken pity on you and provided you a means to do just that, if you can manage it.
    With this start option, 3 lockpicks will appear in the soul gem holder. Pick the lock on the jail cell door and win your freedom. It's that simple. You will simply begin the game proper as soon as you've climbed up the stairs. Until doing so, you can still go back and ask Mara for another option. After that, you're committed.
    Should you fail to pick the lock, you can go back and pick another start option to get out. Sorry, Mara insists we limit this strictly to 3 lockpicks only.
    Arrived by Ship
    You will arrive by ship in the port of Solitude, Dawnstar, Windhelm, or Raven Rock with little more than some basic supplies, middle class clothing, and a decent sum of gold to start over upon your arrival.
    Property Owner
    You will start off with the fully furnished house of your choice in one of 4 major cities. Windhelm is not included due to the quest that interacts directly with the house there. Raven Rock is similarly not included due to the attached quest involved with acquiring that property.
    Each house will start you off with appropriate class clothing and some leftover cash to spend. There will also be a selection of weapons fitting to the city available on the storage chest in the bedroom.
    Alternatively, you can choose from one of the 3 Hearthfire houses. For these, you will start off with a fully furnished Entry Way, Main Hall, Cellar, and all exterior additions. The only thing which will not be enabled is the bard since the bard specifically mentions your steward you don't have yet. The drafting table outside should be ready to go with whatever additions you want on the house afterward.
    If owning property in a city is boring, you don't like Hearthfire houses, or you'd prefer to have access to all of the available hold questing, you can choose instead to own a farmhouse. The farmhouse is situated on the main road just north of Rorikstead and comes complete with a pair of NPCs to act as your farm hands. Your farm will generate a regular income that you can collect from the farm hands. You do need to come home from time to time to collect it though. The farmhouse also supports adoption if Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions is installed.
    Member of a Guild
    You will be a new recruit in one of the joinable factions in the game. The Companions, College of Winterhold, Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, The Dawnguard, or the Volkihar Vampires (Lord Harkon's Court). Your starting equipment will be geared toward the faction you have chosen.
    For the Thieves Guild, you will begin just inside the Ragged Flagon, having just emerged from the Ratway. Talk to Brynjolf to seal the deal.
    For the Dark Brotherhood, you will begin immediately inside the Falkreath Sanctuary and need only speak to Astrid to complete the process.
    For the College, you'll be placed just outside the Hall of Elements and will have completed the initial joining phase.
    For the Companions, you'll begin in Jorvaskr and begin with the mission to train with Varkas.
    For the Dawnguard, you'll start off in Fort Dawnguard ready to pick up the questline just after Bloodlines.
    For the Volkihar, you'll start off in Harkon's castle just after being bitten and becoming a vampire lord.
    Patron at an Inn
    You will be able to choose from one of several inns throughout Skyrim (and Raven Rock too). Some are relatively safe, others not so much. Nightgate Inn in particular is isolated in the mountains and is more dangerous than most others. Do be careful.
    Outlaw in the Wilds
    You will begin as a member of a group of bandits. For the sake of variety, the group of bandits will be chosen at random, from any properly configured bandit lair in either Tamriel or Solstheim. You will begin with standard bandit level equipment. The bandit faction at the start location will remain friendly to you as long as you don't piss them off first. Tread carefully though, you WILL have a bounty of 1500 gold in the hold the game chooses. The guards will not take kindly to seeing you trotting into a civilized area unless you're prepared to pay up.
    Soldier in the Army
    You begin as a recruited soldier in either the Stormcloaks or the Imperial Legion. Which one you choose will determine the gear you start with. You will begin at the point immediately after what would be each one's first mission, which is little more than a cannon fodder quest on either side.
    Make sure you watch the Jagged Crown scene or things will get messed up!
    Camping in the Woods
    You are a lone hunter, camping in the woods. This will start you off with decent low level equipment, a campfire, cooking pot, bedroll and tent. The camp will be in the forest/hills near Helgen and will serve as an alternative method for witnessing the dragon attack that will not require you to actually be in the village when it is destroyed. The camp will remain in place permanently should you wish to return and use it as a base.
    Shipwrecked off the Coast
    Shipwrecked! You were a passenger aboard a merchant ship on the way to Solitude when the ship struck an iceberg off the coast and then capsized. Make your escape from the doomed vessel, retrieving any useful items on your way out, then make your way to the nearby ice floes. From there, you'll quickly realize it's a LONG way off to shore.
    Take care if using survival mods, especially those with hypothermia modules. You can freeze to death quickly!
    Attacked and Left for Dead
    You find yourself in a remote area, robbed and left for dead by bandits. They were kind enough to leave what they thought was your corpse dressed in ragged clothes, but nothing more. Can you survive the harsh wilderness and reach safety alive?
    The random locations now include a few spots on Solstheim as well.
    With proper setup, any location in Tamriel or Solstheim in any mod can be made to work with this. See the extension documentation for details.
    Vampire in a Secluded Lair
    The lair has always been home to you, for as long as you can remember. It isn't even clear to you anymore how long you've been a vampire, but you know you still hunger for prey and still have an urge to adventure.
    The game will pick a random vampire lair location from anywhere in Tamriel or Solstheim as long as the dungeon is properly configured. This can include locations added by mods as well. You will begin equipped with standard vampire armor and weapons like all of the other vampires in the game.
    Be aware you could potentially be dropped into a cell with hostile enemies nearby. Be careful when exiting your lair.
    Necromancer in a Hidden Lab
    The laboratory you discovered in Blackreach is running low on supplies. It looks like you'll need to set forth soon to replenish, and perhaps see what's going on in the world these days.
    Fair warning - there is a Dwemer Sphere outside the door to the lab. You'll need to plan ahead before leaving.
    Vigilant of Stendarr
    You have been accepted into the Vigilants of Stendarr and have been granted living access to their headquarters outside of Dawnstar.
    The chest next to you when you begin is yours and is a safe storage container.
    Warlock's Thrall
    You snap to your senses, a sudden weight lifted from your mind by a curious ring you found while gutting a fish. You aren't even sure why you put it on, but you did. Then, suddenly, it becomes clear... You've been under the control of a pair of warlocks dabbling in necromancy! Fortunately they are not aware you've broken their hold over you, and now is your chance to escape!
    You begin the game in Boulderfall Cave, the home of two warlocks. Aside from some rather mundane robes and boots, you are equipped with a very powerful Ring of Nullification and a cheap iron dagger. You are safe so long as you choose to remain in the cave. Venture outside, and as soon as you've wandered far enough, the warlocks will realize you've broken their hold and become hostile. Time to run if you want to live!
    Note: There is no safe storage at this location, so don't leave anything here if you want it later.
    Live in an Orc Stronghold
    You'll begin in the orc stronghold of Dushnikh Yal. Though you have lived there for some time, they still call you outlander, and now you once more hunger for adventure.
    For some people, this may be considered an unbalanced option since you get decked out in a full set of orcish armor and a nice big orcish battleaxe, but you're still level 1. Death can still find you easily enough.
    Khajiit Caravan Guard
    You've been with the caravan for a long time now, and finally your group leader has hired a new guard. Time for some adventure, but you'll always be welcome at the camps in Whiterun or Markarth. This option only activates for a Khajiit.
    Member of a Forsworn Tribe
    Once the true rulers of The Reach, your tribesmen and kin have since been forced to carve out a life in the rugged mountains, away from more comfortable living. The time has come for you to leave and find adventure on your own. Only available for Bretons.
    Note - You get a usable chest in the start location that's safe to keep things in.
    Argonian Dock Worker
    You've been on these docks for months now, perhaps longer. The locals aren't treating you any better and it's high time you did something about it. A life of adventure and glory is just the change of pace you need.
    Note - The first end table inside the door, with the soul gem holder on it, belongs to you and can be used as storage. The container does not respawn.
    Redguard Alik'r Warrior
    Disillusioned with life back home in Hammerfell, you joined the Alik'r and set out to Skyrim on a mission. Only things are not what they seem and it looks like time to set out on your own. Nobody back home will know the difference anyway.
    Dunmer Refugee (Windhelm)
    Morrowind is still a very hostile place, and you've decided to take your chances in Skyrim instead. Upon arrival though, Windhelm isn't at all what you expected or were hoping for. It looks like it's time to cast aside your expectations of an easy life and become an adventurer.
    Note - The bedroll and sack you start standing next to for this are yours. The sack is safe storage.
    Dunmer Refugee (Raven Rock)
    The mainland of Morrowind is still a hostile place, and you've had enough. You're taking your chances on Solstheim in Raven Rock. Upon your arrival though, it's not at all what you were hoping. They almost treat you as an outsider. It looks like that easy life isn't there to be had after all. Might be time to take up adventuring instead.
    This start will begin in the abandon building on the edge of town and from there, you're on your own.
    Note - The bedroll and sack you start standing next to for this are yours. The sack is safe storage.
    Starting on Solstheim can be tough since the DLC is intended for higher level characters. Death will visit often if you are not careful!
    Altmer Agent of the Thalmor
    You're assigned to the Thalmor Embassy near Solitude. As part of your regular duties, you are tasked with routine investigations of various matters in Skyrim. Though Elenwen has yet to trust you with a field assignment - until now. How fortunate that it should mean finally getting to do some adventuring on the side while you're out.
    You begin the game inside the Thalmor Embassy on the upper floor, standing next to a bed. Since the Embassy does not respawn in the vanilla game, all storage should be safe. You will be a member of the Thalmor faction, so you can take what you wish from the building at any time, and can sleep in any of the beds you can find.
    Once you have arrived at Helgen, you will be removed from the faction and the Embassy will then be closed to you until the party during the main quest. Thalmor may become hostile toward you at this point due to their assumption that you've abandoned your post. Be aware that membership in the Thalmor faction may also make Stormcloaks hostile toward you, including cities run by them! Unlike the bandit start, you will retain this membership for as long as you avoid going to Helgen.
    Erik the Slayer's Childhood Friend
    Only available for Nords.
    You and Erik have lived in Rorikstead all your lives and have been the best of friends since Mralki took you in. Farming isn't a bad life, but ever since Lokir started telling all those stories about a life of adventure, it's all you two have talked about for months. Erik's father has finally given his blessing and the two of you are finally geared up and ready to depart!
    You begin the game at the Frostfruit Inn in Rorikstead. Erik's mini-quest is completed and he has been assigned as your follower. You can dismiss him at any time just like normal. Your starting equipment will be the same as his equipment.
    Member of the Penitus Oculatus
    Only available for Imperials.
    You've been assigned to the Emperor's detail in Dragon Bridge. The commander has finally realized that someone needs to go out and do some field work to prepare for the Emperor's visit to Skyrim. Fortunately, the commander has chosen you for the job. It can't hurt to do some adventuring on the side while you're out doing your duties.
    You begin the game at the Penitus Oculatus Outpost in Dragon Bridge. You are equipped with a full uniform, an Imperial sword, and Imperial shield plus incidental gear and loot. As a member of the faction, you will be able to take anything from the outpost if you want, but since this cell respawns, you DO NOT have safe storage. Membership in this faction may cause other factions to react in a hostile manner!
    Upon the "Unbound" quest completing, you will be removed from the faction on the assumption that you have failed to fulfill the duties you were assigned to. You will also be expelled should you decide to turn on your fellow Oculatus members and attack them.
    Surprise Me
    Random roll that will pick one of the above. The standard Helgen start will not be included in this. Race specific starts will only apply if the player's race matches.
    Credits
    Chesko - For his polygon shape detection script.
    Nikkita - For her awesome work on the voiced lines for the statue of Mara in the starting cell.
    Dwip - The new mesh section for the farmhouse interior.

  19. 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.
    * 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.

  20. The Paarthurnax Dilemma

    Disappointed with how ruthless and unforgiving the Blades were at the end of the main quest? Felt like you should have been able to put your foot down and make them see reason? Well now you can!
    This mod is a simple, yet badly needed modification to the post-MQ quest the Blades give you to kill Paarthurnax.
    Approach the quest as usual. Listen to the Greybeards and Paarthurnax.
    Should you decide to spare his life, return to Delphine or Esbern and explain it to them. You may have to be a bit forceful in the process. They may not like what you're telling them, but they're supposed to be there to serve the Dragonborn, right?
    Should you choose to go through with slaying him, he will not be alone. Paarthurnax told you he was going to try and teach others the Way of the Voice, and he'll have his first group of students listening intently. Or, well, whatever dragons do when they're perched on rocks looking at each other.
    Are you a ruthless savage like your Blade companions, or will you show compassion and forgiveness the Blades don't appear to be capable of anymore? Make your choice, Dragonborn!

  21. The Horkerpocalypse

    No one knows why it happened. Was it revenge? Were the Gods angry with us? Was that mage who left here cursing our names responsible? It no longer matters. We are in the battle of our lives! Windhelm has been overrun. There is little hope. Nothing we can do to save ourselves. To whomever reads this note, we beseech you. Stop this madness before it takes us all straight to Oblivion! It's here! The Horkerpocalypse is upon us all!
    -- Note found pinned to a post outside Windhelm sometime last night. Is that a beer stain?
    From the demented minds of the AFK Mods team comes a mod with absolutely no true purpose whatsoever. Born of a chat session that got just a bit too... weird. Come, hero, prove yourself worthy. Save the citizens of Windhelm from their beer induced delusions if you dare. Do you have what it takes to stop The Horkerpocalypse?

  22. 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.

  23. Storefront

    Congratulations on your recent marriage! Your spouse has a plan though. They would like to keep from going mentally insane from boredom while you're gone for weeks on end adventuring in strange lands. So they've informed you they'll be setting up a shop to keep busy while you're away. Except for one small detail. They want to do so from your shared abode. Does this really make sense? Should your spouse be putting the family home at risk in such a manner? No! They certainly should not. Every major city where you can buy a house has a market area that should have enough space to accommodate a small trading stall to serve this purpose. The only difference is that your spouse will not offer to buy, sell, or let you invest when they are not at the stand.
    So this mod will do exactly that. Now your spouse will operate a store from the market area in the city you are currently living in. Your spouse will man this stall during the normal daylight hours, then return home at night. You can come and collect your profits at any time just like normal. Yes, even though it's a bit daft, this will work for the Hearthfire houses as well since Bethesda made no provisions for turning off the shop functions when living in a Hearthfire home. If you have Thirteen Oranges' Laintar Dale and/or Oakwood installed, the market stand will be set up next to one of these locations instead since the two villages are close enough to be within walking distance of the houses in The Pale and Falkreath.
    As an added bonus, the shop will relocate with you if you move to a new city and there will be a chest at the stall that you can add items to in order to have them "sold" to the general public. The chest will be emptied out each day to simulate having sold the goods, and a varied amount of gold will be added to the standard marriage profits you can collect from your spouse. This provides not only a cool way to make some extra cash, but also to trim down your junk inventory in a somewhat more realistic way.
    If you choose to move into your spouse's original house (wherever that may be) then they will not operate a stand even if it's in one of the supported locations. Bethesda's spouse setup does not support this and I do not have any intention on editing the marriage quest to change this. Your spouse will almost certainly have an AI routine to follow when living in their house anyway. You will not have access to the chest to deposit your unwanted junk in while you are choosing to live in their home.
    Assuming certain conditions are met in mod added homes, this could also provide a means for allowing the spouse to run a shop from a mod added house.

  24. Sounds of Skyrim - Complete Edition [MCM]

    Quoted from the original documentation:
    This mod combines all of the SoS modules into one easy to use package and includes MCM support for those who use SkyUI-SE. For those who don't, the initial configuration is now handled through the use of a book for each module you can read to set things up. Some minor bugs have also been fixed along the way.

  25. 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.
    * LOD has been generated for the area.
