This mod is no longer being updated.
This mod requires the Dawnguard expansion.

This mod aims to refurbish areas of Castle Volkihar which were previously left in ruins and also add new areas to explore.
The East Tower has been transformed into a small guest quarters/player quarters with safe storage and bookshelves. The North Tower has been turned into a Library/Museum with plenty of varied display options. There is a brand new Chapel within the North Tower. I have also created a brand new Baths area. I have connected these new areas with the Castle Volkihar Balcony via a brand new Ruined Tower section.
I have also cleared up the courtyard area around the tower entrances and added a large custom fountain against the North-East wall.
I have aimed to furnish the new areas in a manner that is lore-friendly and also believable in order to retain immersion.

Features include:
- Three new areas of Castle Volkihar
- Multiple brand new NPCs
- New map marker to the castle courtyard
- Player/Guest Quarters
- Safe Storage
- 2 Small Bookshelves
- Player-owned bed (coffin)
- Library/Museum
- 3 Vertical Weapon Racks
- 2 Horizontal Weapon Racks
- 5 Large Display Cases
- 4 Small Display Cases
- 7 Armour Mannequins
- Surplus Storage Chests
- Cleared Courtyard Area
- Fountain
- Chapel
- Shrines to various deities
- Baths
- Ruined Tower explorable area
- Unique weapon
- Treasure to be claimed
- Full Navmesh coverage

Future additions: I have completed what it was that I originally set out to do so from now on I will focus on improvements and minor additions.

Please Note: Back-up your saves before using this mod. Please also back-up your saves before using the most up to date version of the mod.

A note on confliction: Firstly, I created this mod after completing the main Dawnguard quests and so cannot say with certainty that it will not cause any issues. That being said, the only changes that I have made are physical ones i.e. moving rubble, adding furniture, adding flora. I have not moved or removed any of the quest objects, markers or triggers. This means that there should be no issue running this mod before completing the main quest line.
Valerica's return does not conflict with this mod in any way.

Small print: I do not give permission for this mod to be redistributed or repackaged without my express consent.

I thought the revamp was well done, keep doing the revamps of other structures a lot of them could use a make-over.

Hi dougiedave,
1) Afraid so, all my additions were based on assuming the vampires were chosen
2) I only made cosmetic changes, so if the expansion allows spouses etc in, there should be no problem with my mod
3) As mentioned above, I dont think this mod would work for you if you wanted to use Volkihar as a Dawnguard base- sorry.
4) I didnt change the docks (never got round to it). I left the undercroft too, as my new basements are nice as a seperate feature.
Hope this helps :)

correction followers. Also, what about the undercroft, the docks, and everything else? Are they cleared as well?

What if I choose the Dawnguard side? Do I still have all those undead stinking up the castle? Can I move NPC's and my spouse into the castle? Or woud I be able to at it as a dawnguard base?

Hi Satellite_13, Im sorry to hear that you are having issues. I'd be happy to help. I can send you the mod file directly if you would like? That has worked for people before. If you PM me an email address we can go from there.
