Castle Volkihar Redux - A Player Home (NOW LIVE ON SKYRIM SPECIAL EDITION)

Castle Volkihar Redux Skyrim Special Edition IS NOW LIVE on Bethesda's new Mod site!

Now the size of a city, Castle Volkihar Redux is the ultimate vampire kingdom for the true overlord of Skyrim. All blocked portals now go to new places. New towers, quests, buffs, armors, weapons, followers, amenities, crafting and more. Dawnguard DLC required.

* Must have the Dawnguard DLC purchased and installed
* Install anytime but castle won't upgrade until "Touching the Sky" (get Auriels bow) is completed
* Works fine with the Dragonborn DLC (not required)
* Does not matter if you choose vampire or Dawnguard side
* No 3rd party tools or mods needed

Prior to Harkon's rule his older brother Brunar was the head of the Volkihar family. After becoming vampires a power struggle began. Harkon created a powerful vampire army, stormed the castle and magically sealed Brunar and his small band of loyal coven members away in the family tombs.
If you are able to acquire Auriels Bow you must find the coven and set them free.Thus begins your own journey not only to restore the castle beyond it's former glory but to reign as the supreme overlord of Skyrim. You can now build your own army of Draugrs, Gargoyles and Vampires.

*Did you finish Dawnguard and wonder why Castle Volkihar didnt upgrade?
*Did you think the blocked portals would open up into a real homestead?
*Then look no further, this mod does exactly that and more, read on!

Once the castle is yours Draugr guards and a new vampire coven members loyal to you will begin to patrol the castle inside and out. Some new followers are gained through quests. Additional Draugr sentries can also be added through a quest.

There are new primary crafting stations such as a Forge, Alchemy Tables and Enchanting stations. A Wood Chopping Block can be found on the upper tier of the shipyard and Cooking Pots. 4 unique Blood Cauldron/Buckets to brew blood potions are spread throughout the castle.

You will find mannequins, weapon/racks, chests, display cases, and much more throughout the Castle. You will want to visit the North Tower Vault which is specifically designed for the safe storage of your items & display's for your Dragon Priest Masks and Dragon Claws. A bust of change your face can also be found in the North Tower's bathing area. One will also unlock the Daedric South Tower through a quest (The Forgotten Tower). It provides uniquel display's for most all Daedric items found within Skyrim including Dragon Scrolls.

Knowledge of teleportation magic has been added from the soul cairn. This teleportation wing is known as 'Teleport Tower West'. It is located in Valerica's Tower. It can be found by using any of the teleporter pads found in each wing of the castle. It includes two teleportation networks, one for the castle internally and one to six major cities throughout Tamriel. A spell tome that teaches the spell 'return to castle Volkihar' can be found in this very wing.

*The Castle's Shipyard and it's boats have been restored. You can use them to travel to the shores of Tamriel.

*Several dungeons have been added. A Gargoyle Lair, secret cave and a few vampire lairs which must be cleared out to inhabit.

Two Molag Bal shrines are added to the castle. But let it be known that the blessing from Molag Bal trumps all those other lesser daedric blessings combined. When Molag Bal bestows his chosen with a blessing, he wants them stronger than any foe in the known planes of existence. These shrines are found in Harkon's Cathedral off of the Keep & inside the Temple of Molag Bal in Valerica's Tower.

Known Mod Conflicts

Arilade, this bug is not part of this mod. It is however why this mod is not #1 ranked. People don't understand the simple fact that when mods conflict, it's not the mods fault, it's just a cold hard software fact that some mods don't play well together. You are using a follower mod. I know you are because it's the cause of that issue. Load order can usually fix this. It's been in the FAQ for over 3 years and 99% of the time it fixes this issue just to reinstall this mod a couple of times. In fact, it's the very first fix listed on my FAQ here:

Welcome to Castle Volkihar Redux comments section. I hope you enjoy this mod. Please read the following information.

I do not have time to support general questions about how to use mods with Skyrim. I will ignore these questions completely as I barely have time to support this free mod. See my FAQ.

Deleting mods after making a save is the #1 reason people experience issues with Skyrim while using mods. So, either roll back to a save from before you installed the mod you deleted or don't delete mods! You can safely "disable" mods in the first splash screen on game open under "Data".

2nd reason is mod compatibility. Installing mods that change original Skyrim game files that other mods rely on. When this happens the conflicting mods may break your game save.

I have a monster rig so it runs smooth as glass for me. It looks fantastic.

I have a question.What do you think of the performance for the Special Edition? Is the game janky or smooth?
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Feb 25 @ 11:02pm 
Ah, well this page is really more for the old version and one should specify because they aren't the same builds. I took that quest out in the xbox version because too many people are using mods that conflict.
jwailly Feb 25 @ 3:59pm 
I am using skyrim special edition of the mod and xbox one.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Feb 24 @ 10:50pm 
Thx for the postive feedback Countess.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Feb 24 @ 10:49pm
