Thane's Breezehome - Hearthfire Edition

Notice: This is the Hearthfire version of the mod, if you do not have the Hearthfire DLC click here for the non-DLC version of Thane's Breezehome. They're essentially the same except this version solves compatibility issues with the DLC.

Prepare to renew Breezehome in a way that better befits the thane of Whiterun. This design aims to provide the player with all the tools that he/she needs, while still maintaining the looks and feel of a proper home. The renovation takes advantage of the limited space of Breezehome giving it a very detailed look and includes a neatly placed asement that follows the same principal of limited space. All the crafting tables are located in the basement and has their own special ares. The author of this mod has extremely high experience and a long history with playing The Sims, all the way back to the first Sims game. Also, for balance the value of Breezehome has been raised from 5000 to 12 000 gold, but if you've already purchased Breezehome then I guess we can look the other way.

Technical Information
If you want to permanently use this player home and are currently using vanilla Breezehome, you'll first need to take all your stuff into your inventory if you do not want them to be removed. There is also no harm in trying out the mod as long as you have a save file to go back to.

• Major flickering issues in lighting
- Look for mods in your load order that might be adding additional lighting to the Breezehome cell. If you are using the Enhanced Lights and FX mod there is a compatibility patch available on Nexus under "Optional Files".

• Fireplace does not respond when using the activator
- You have too many running scripts in the background already. Check your load order for mods that may be heavy scripted.

Q: I didn't read the description and now I've lost all my items. How do I retrieve them?
A: Disable this mod in Data Files or unsubscribe to the mod and then revert back to a save that was made before the mod was installed.

Q: I aldready own Breezehome, can I still use this mod?
A: Yes, all you need is the key to Breezehome which you have already purchased. Also make sure to grab all your gear from vanilla Breezehome before using the mod permanently. If you wish to test the mod before using it, simply try the mod without overwriting any important save data (beware of autosave).

Q: Why are some lights flashing when I move the camera?
A: If the flashing light is of the type that casts a shadow you've likely managed to bypass one of the "invisible" activators that determines which lights should be on/off and as a result there are more than 4 shadow casting lights at once. To fix this problem, take a walk around all the areas in the house so that the light script knows where you are.

Q: The house will not load and the game crashes, what is the problem?
A: This is most likely caused by a conflict between Thane's Breezehome and another mod in your load order. Go to "Data Files" in the Skyrim Launcher and try disabling any other mod that makes changes to Whiterun city or Breezehome and set Thane's Breezehome.esp to load last in your load order, then try again.

Q: Some of the weapon mounts are not working.
A: If your game is heavy modded and has a lot of scripts running in the background, this may be the cause. You can either try to wait and see if the problem solves itself or deactivate this mod in data files and make a clean save, then reactivate Thane's Breezehome again.

@Sir Seth
Thank you, I'm glad you like it. And I haven't really thought about the bed problem, I'll have a look and see if I can't make a quick fix. In the mean time you can also remove the table yourself via a console command. Look at the table, open the console, left-click the table and then use the command disable .

I like this mod a lot. I don't think it's too cluttered, (or maybe it's just that I prefer clutter), and I love all the storage and display cases as well as mannequins. All the other houses didn't have enough for my liking. I didn't mind not having a housecarl bed as I sacrificed Lydia to Boethia, lol. The only thing I dislike about this is that the double bed is right against the wall and if your spouse is sleeping on that side and you talk to them, when they stand up they're glitched into the wall. If you remove the small end table with the little display case there'd be plenty of room to move the bed over to avoid that, and with the amount of other cabinets and dressers and display cases that one little one isn't really necessary. But over-all, I love it.

Does this mod conflict with either the adoption of Lucia, purchase of Breezehome or the quest Dragon Rising? I tried the cleaner Breezehome mod and that didn't work so well neither did the Better Breezehome one

You should always retrieve valuables before making changes and obviously have a save before the switch. I assume you would be deleting the workshop files which means the home and everything contained in it to be replaced with the vanilla. then youd have to add the nexus version replacing it with an updated version but still ne to the game.

What a beautiful remodel! This made breezehome a worthy home
Dampback Oct 10, 2016 @ 9:36pm 
The mod worked fine for me and this has plenty of storage and looks like a lived in home.

In my opinion, its too cluttered for what I am looking for, I feel like most people who want to upgrade breezehome want just a little more storage and all the tools for crafting available.

but its a great mod.

Unsubscribing isn't the most effective way to uninstall. Open Skyrim launcher and go to Data Files, make sure Thane's Breezehome.esp is not listed or at least not ticked.
