Breezehome Fully Upgradable Hearthfires + Dawnguard - READ INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU INSTALL

Breezehome Fully Upgradeable Hearthfires + Dawnguard Edition

This is a mod that allows you to slowly upgrade Breezehome from it's humble beginnings as a little shack to a home worthy of a dragonslayer. It adds 14 new upgrades to breeze home including vampire/dawnguard specific updgrades, 3 new fully Voiced NPCs, and a mini quest to find all 9 shrines to the divines. With more upgrades and a quest extension to be added in the future. This mod is for those of you that want a better breezehome but still want to have an immersive game experience where you want to earn all of the various upgrades to your house. You buy the upgrades from 4 different NPCs. The base upgrades you get from the steward of whiterun. The Bulk of the rest of your upgrades you will buy from your old handiman named Garath(some of you might already be familiar with him ;) who spends his time in the bannared mare in whiterun. The final upgrades are dependent on your aliance in the Dawnguard DLC. Either Ceric the thrallmaster's assistant or Henselt the Dog wrangler will provide you with upgrades appropriate to your alliance. You will need to do several things to install this mod properly so read the instructions carefully.


Dawnguard Only Version:

No DLC Version:

For better info, support and optional downloads check out my Nexus page:

Installation Instructions:

1) remove all items from Breezehome (use console command "TGM" to toggle god mod on/off so you can carry all of your stuff)
2) make a NEW save of your game outside of breezehome.
3) uninstall all breezehome related mods (some mods may not seem to be related but actually have dirty edits of breezehome that can cause conflicts so this may take a bit of testing to get it right)
4) Load skyrim again with the vanilla breezehome and make another NEW save. (not always necessary but good to do)
5) Subscribe/Install this mod
6) Set this mod to load last or close to last in your data files load order (if using NMM or SKSE do the same there)
7) Start up skyrim then enter the Bannared Mare. Hit f5 to quicksave then f9 to quick load. (this resets Garath so his sound files are actually loaded. If you don't do this he'll be silent. you may need to repeat this process when first meeting Ceric or Henselt as well. If garath doesn't show up at all quit to the desktop and restart skyrim he should show then.)
8) Enjoy the mod. If you are upgrading from the previous version of this mod you can give yourself $10000 to replace the money spent on your upgrades previously.
9) Buy all new upgrades from Garath in the Bannared Mare

1) empty the house of all valuables.
2) Use the Options Ledger to "uninstall" the mod
3) Go outside the house and save.
4) Unsubscribe
5) Delete all Breezehome_Fully_Upgradable mod files out of your Skyrim/data directory

- After each upgrade to the Home you will find a note from "Garath" an old handy man character who runs the crew that upgrades your home. These notes give you backstory, Explanations, Hints & Instructions.

- You can't place any of garath's daggers or any of the weapons found in the house on or in any weapon racks or cases due to a "Donothavokonload" script. They'll just fall to the ground behind you.

- Some upgrades only appear if you have the money to afford them so keep checking back with Garath to make sure you have purchased them all.

Other Modifications:
- Autochests: The top chest in the smelter station. The Tanning station chest, the alchemy satchel and the Strongbox by the enchanting table all have auto storage scripts.
- AutoAccess scripts: In addition to the autostorage capability the various crafting tables are tied to their respective chests and will automatically put all items stored in those chests into your inventory every time you want to craft. when you exit the crafting station all of those items are then returned to the chest/storage container. (Note: When you have a lot of items in your containers this might cause you to pause while it loads and unloads items in and out of your inventory.

Future Upgrades:
1) Optional Tower Upgrade Addon
2) Eventual expansion of collapsed tunnel which involves will unlock a whole new series of upgrades (Separate addon mod)

Known bugs/Incompatabilities:
- Stuff may "Havok" or fall all over the place or float in mid air. This is due to some anti static scripts and skyrim "remembering" your old objects from your previous saves. Simply pick those up and sell all your junk to Belathor.
- Not compatible with "DragonBorn House - Casa del Sangre"
- Not compatible with "Dragonreach Hideout"
- Not compatible with "Alchemy incredient sorter"
- Not compatible with "more dynamic shadows"
- Not compatible with the Breezehome option of the "Alternate start" mod as that mod alters breezehome. (the other options work fine)
- Not compatible with Skyrim Project Optimization (changes how cell loads)
- Partially incompatible with Open Cities mod.
- HEARTHFIRES Display cases fix - dirty edits

A couple clipping errors but i got it fixed, other than that i love this mod including Garath's little notes/dialogue. Took a screen shot of a cutting board clipping the bookshelf in front of the fireplace.

Love this mod. Only real complaint I have is that the garden is a bit tricky to use and walk around. But besides that it's the best breezehome mod I've used!
