Severin Manor Improvements

Severin Manor from DragonBorn DLC is a spacious and interesting home, but has a few annoyances that I set out to fix

Features, fixes and additions
- Fix: The music in the house is no longer dungeon music but main Solstheim music.

- Tweak: The Nordic horn chandeliers has been replaced by Dunmer lanterns (seriously, they made these great looking Dunmer lanterns then put generic Skyrim chandeliers in the only Dunmer player house?)

- Tweak: Dark areas have been re-lit by additional lanterns.

- New: An activatable unique Soul Gem Chest in the enchanting room for your soul gem storage.

- New: Activatable unique Wine and Liquor Racks in the main hall using the new Dunmer Liquor Bottles for your Drinks storage.

- New: 4 Activatable unique Food crates with food meshes nicely organized in them: Meat crate, Ash Foods crate, Cheese and Bread crate, and Produce crate. see screenshots.

- New: Display case in Enchanting Room.

- New: Bookshelf in Enchanting room under the Soul Gem Chest.

- New: 2 new Mannequins and rack sets in front of the main Bed.

- New: 2 new Mannequins and rack sets in front of the guest Bed.

- New: Added Satchels on the alchemy and enchanting tables (lite version), and ingredient/potion crates in New items version. see screenshots.

- New: items version has some new decorative items in main bedroom.

- New: Added safe and box in crafting area (lite version), and New items version has an ore crate and ingot box.

Vanilla fix: Added real activators to Display cases that Bethesda forgot/ignored. you can now properly "insert" weapons in them. Not staffs though.

- Tweak: Turned 2 static barrels in crafting area to container barrels.

- New: Bookcase and chair in main Hall.

- New: mannequin and 2 racks to the corridor leading to crafting area.

- New: mannequin and 2 racks to the side bedroom.

- New: idle markers added in house, useful if you have a follower/spouse sand-boxing around so they'd do something else rather than chomp on food all day.

- Tweak: Excessive amounts of hay in the main hall have been removed and replaced by a table and an Ash yam Urn.

- Tweak: The (IMO) Nordic-themed Animal pelt Rugs have been replaced by regular woven rugs, ***I recommend using the mod Celtic and braided rugs (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/7274) to get what you see in the screenshots.

- Oaristys @ the Nexus for the Modders resource pack

is it possible to make this mod compatible with Hearthfire ((and maybe multiple adoptions?)) that would be really fantastic but otherwise the mod is really nice!!! thanks!!

It's an excellent and refreshing view on containers!
Though, reports:
- Scroll Box is called Scoll Box.
- Damn mannequins move in a cumulative fashion! Like this, you enter the house, and the mannequin in the furnace room tilts to look at the door from where you came. Then you leave, come back, and it's tilted a little bit more. After a few doorslams, the mannequin is looking directly at the door (and changing its items won't fix it)!

@uglydemon Greetings, I do like you mod, BUT! I have problems with some of the Weapon racks and the mannequins. Some of the additional racks and display cases simply aren't working - they are showing the "press e to stow your weapon" option, but actually pressing e results in doing nothing. especually the "new" racks and cases in the main bedroom.

I absolutely like you overhaul of the Mansion, it is both lorefriendly and well-balanced, but such little details keeps it from being perfect ^^ Or is this problem just on my end?

@talynamber: You have to use a tool called the Nexus Mod Manager, which lets you easily implement any Mod you want to use from the Nexus or whatever source you have. The tool is pretty self-explanatory, but there are tutorials on YouTube just in case.

A hearthfire upgrade to this hoise would be a BIG plus for those players that have virtual families....

I wonder what they planned on doing with all that hay? Didn't even make a decent mattress out of it, that never did make sense, so glad you did this mod

I am unable to get mods from Nexus to load to my Skyrim data, as the steam ones automatically do, I am not computer literate enough I guess. Any help with obtaining those fab rugs by Nexus would be great, I have a Nexus account, don't know how to get the files to Skyrim ..I am a dummy, what can I say???

Great., GREAT job! No more dungeon!! I wish I could get the vibrant rugs, but I just can't work the Nexus downloader, my comp doesn't play well with it. I love Severin Manor now, I didn't much care for it before. But..I waas hoping for a paded matress, lol.
