Reserve II

Located right outside the lovely Rorikstead, The Reserve is a new player home built from scratch and meticulously designed for convenience and extravagant living. Featuring three main wings all branching from the center, it could not be more simple to navigate, and still provides all the essentials and more. Each wing uses different textures chosen carefully to compliment the rooms purpose.

If the new apple spawner is not working, you may be missing the script file, which can be downloaded on the Nexus mod page (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=8651), and placed in your Data > Scripts folder.

!!! IMPORTANT: Scroll down and read Updates and Known Bugs for important information.

SPOUSES: Please use this mod with The Reserve to have your spouse live with you.

Too many mannequins: If you do NOT want them, console-disable them. Walk up to the mannequin you want to remove, press ~ then click on the mannequin, type 'disable' (no quotes), hit enter, and press ~ again to close console. Its super easy, and will get rid of the ones you do not want. :>

It is good practice to make a real save game (not a quick save), at least every few days and back these up in case something goes wrong.

The Main Hall is the entrance, and also acts as the hub to get to each wing of the home. The high ceilings and windows to the outside sky were designed to feel open and refreshing. Depending on the time of day, the room is lit with warm sunshine, or soft blue moonlight. The Den is a furnished and warmly-lit bedroom with ample storage. The Forge is complete with all the tools an Adventurer needs. Everything is close at hand for quick and efficient crafting. The Atrium is a grand circular library with a small garden and Alchemy/Enchanting tables. The basement has displays and storage for all your collections. Also a kitchen/bar, dining room, and small personal archery range.

. All tools needed for crafting in one convenient room
. All shrines available for blessing of your choice

. If using Steam Workshop, simply press Subscribe

. Make SURE you REMOVE everything from The Reserve before you uninstall, as the house will be removed from the game. You will lose your items unless you remove them. If using Steam Workshop, simply press Unsubscribe

Interested in donating? First, thank you so much for even considering a donation. They really help me make time to continue work on my current mods and future projects. :> Since my website is currently down for maintenance, any donations can be sent to my Paypal address sartell.rachel@gmail.com. If you have any questions or comments about the mod, feel free to comment or send them to: lithxemods@gmail.com.

. The pond outside sometimes looks like it is floating, this is caused by a land model piece not loading. Restarting the game loads the piece, though I still do not know why this happens yet.
. Using the weapon racks in the basement sometimes cuases parts of the basement to look invisible upon re-entry. Restarting the game fixes this every time.
. May not work with other mods that change the landscape in or around Rorikstead
. Animating or moved mannequins: Try exiting the house and re-entering. This has fixed it for me every time. (CK issue, NOT A MOD ISSUE.)
. Weapon racks sometimes get stuck. More often the activator just gets bumped to the left or right, try hovering your mouse off to the sides to get the dialog. (Working on this, for now console-respawn your weapon.)

Current Release 1.0
. Lowered gold in Rivers inventory to fix bug
. The Reserve is getting an overhaul. One room at a time is being released, with this update focusing only on The Den. The following notes refer to The Den only.
. No chests, storage, or other important items were removed. Some wardrobes, etc, were moved to another wall/location, but your items will remain intact. Clutter that was not removed previous to updated may have spilled onto the floor.
. Some textures and minor architecture changed
. Washroom added
. Details throughout and other minor fixes, replacing clutter and adding new clutter
. New lighting
. Updated books
. Added a room bound and portal to The Den for optimization

I love this mod - have used it as my player home since I started playing Skyrim. It's just perfect - lovely design, well-planned storage, all the things you need in a single load screen and a basement where unneeded followers hang out. I found Reserve 2 on a mod shopping spree earlier - I love the look of it, but the storage and mannequins mean this one will remain my home.

Unbeatable. Congrats and thank you :)

The Reserve II page is back up and running, I had to agree to a new ToS, sorry about that!

@Everyone, I still read comments though I dont have the time to respond to everyone unfortunately! :c If you are commenting about mannequins or spouses, see FAQ. I appreciate all your nice words! Thanks!
