STORY:

Castle Volkihar has been occupied by vampire's for centuries. Prior to Harkon taking over the castle, his brother Brunar was the head of the coven.
Harkon raised an army and finally after a decade of fighting stormed the castle and locked his brother and his coven away in the family tombs. After acquiring Auriels Bow you must find the coven and set them free by awakening them from their long hibernation
Vampirism was created by Daedric prince Molag Bal. You will find new apparel and magical influences from him throughout the Castle.

Many people don't know you can just drop items on the ground anywhere in Skyrim and it will not disappear. The best and safest place to store items in this mod is the vault in the North Tower. As far as the display cases, you should be able to "use" them and the weapon you are holding will get set inside it. If that is not happening you need to follow these instructions: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/129969995/846966336549220989/#c846966336549568886

great mod however i have a question about safe containers such as are all safe? also i am having difficulty with the display cases in the north tower not holding items, they just lay on top of the case.

Hi Kusliy, I tried translating this on google but the problem you have with lighting and relation to construction comes out with words not used in english. And also thank you for the kind words. I'm happy that you enjoy the mod.

Замок заиграл всеми красками после того как вы все расчистили.И освещение и мебель все так как должно быть- спасибо. Вообще само дополнение очень хорошее. Вот бы еще поработали с дополнением по строительству своего поместья- оно просто никакое.

Hi [US] Reign, this mod is much more than just a "lplayer home". Its about 30 mods in one. I put it in all the catagories that this mod has in it. You can see more about how much is in this mod on the skyrim mod's wiki. http://tes-mods.wikia.com/wiki/Castle_Volkihar_Redux
[Y.A.] [US] Reign Dec 15 @ 3:12pm 
could you like... not put a player home mod in every single catagory? i am trying to scroll through mods and no matter what i filter yours keeps coming up
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Dec 15 @ 1:13pm 
chloerianfarmer, then did you uninstall and re-install this mod by unsubscribing, synchronizing then re-subscribing again? Due to the size of this mod (exactly 99.9mb). So for some reason many times steams servers don't give all the files when you download it the 1st, or even 2nd time. Read these:http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/129969995/846966336549220989/#c846966336549568886
