Grilli's Mini Zoo v1.5
(deutsche version unter: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/26888)

I do not know, if there is another mod like this, but i had the idea for a zoo in skyrim.
It is only a house with creatures. it makes no sense, but a lot of fun.
(latest version now with a simple aquarium, to have a look at the nice slaughterfish)
inside you'll meet some 'old friends' who have a look what's going on.
the creatures inside are shrinked and made unagressive by 'magic'.


the location is near whitewatch tower (whiterun) south east along the road about 300 meters.
there is an image of the gamemap with the location.
i do not knew, if there are other mods at this place, but i think it's a good place.

i tested the mod in an english and german version of skyrim, with and without dawnguard
and all runs fine. sometimes when i zapped through too much savegames, the people in the zoo
disappeared. if you have this problem too, only restart the game and all runs fine.

i cleaned this mod with tes5edit to prevent problems.
i do not know, if there are conflicts with other mods. please tell me if you find some.

this mod is now tested with hearthfire and i think it runs correct !!!

if you have any problems with this mod, please make a post.
if you like it, make a post too and vote for me.
thanks a lot.

(for the 'darkfaces bug' please download my mod from
'skyrim Nexus: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/26888'.
inside there are two directories, meshes and textures. put them to your
data directory. nothing will be removed from your files.
there are only the 'face tint colour' files.)

update 1.5
many of you want to buy souveniers at the zoo.
here they are. i made 31 jars with creatures, animals and stuff.
you can buy them from merchant belethor in the zoo.
the jars are a bit smaller than the originals in game, so they fit better in bookshelves.
( if you have 'unlimited bookshelves' mod installed )
the souveniers are not cheap! my zoo needs the gold. :)
so have fun with lots of new things for your home!

update 1.4
- no zoo without an aquarium
- added a second room with fish
(no masterpiece in architecture, i know)
- very simple made and without lots of stuff

update 1.3
- some small fixes
- when i played last time, merchants left their position. hope they stay now
at the correct place.
- set the starting point a bit more far from the zoo
- file comes with dragons. i add a 'dragonless' to optional files in skyrim nexus at
(in steam i can only upload one file.)

update v1.2
for all of you, who think there are too much people inside, be happy now.
rush hour is from 12:00 to 22:00.
at 22:00 i send the children to bed for 7 hours.
at 6:00 most of the old ones go for 6 hours.
the best time to have a look is from 6:00 to 12:00.
the bedroom is locked and there is no key for you!

update v1.1
fixed some problems and you can travel to.

have a nice day in zoo.
