Enhanced Hotpools by Ja-Kha'jay

Ever wanted to kick back and relax in the hotpools in Eastmarch? Now you can! This mod enhances the hotpool camp so your Dovahkiin can sit down and simmer.

Adds a few partially hidden rock chairs around the hotpool edges that your Dragonborn can sit on and relax. They shouldn't be too difficult to find at the hunter's camp. Just click and sit, nice and easy. Also added are some extra furniture markers that NPCs can interact with, but not the Dragonborn.
Enhanced Hotpools was designed for use with King Coin's 'Followers can Relax' mod, but is completely separate. I repeat, EH is not dependant on FCR. FCR is the reason I added the extra markers, so now you and your companion can relax in the hot springs until you're both all pruned up.

Enhanced Hotpools is also available on the Nexus:

Dependancies: None

Clashes: None that I am aware of

Bugs: Some folks have experienced a texture mismatch with the new NPCs. This can be fixed by downloading the relevant files from the Nexus (see above link).
Sometimes the Argonian spawns high up in the air and plunges to his death, no idea why.
Sometimes the script wasn't included in the BSA file. This has been fixed as of Revision 6. This should also fix the texture mismatch.

Revision 2: Replaces the Dwemer chairs with actual rocks that the Dragonborn can sit on. Also adds a map marker for the Hotsprings Camp.

Revision 3: Tweaked map marker so it faces the camp on fast travel. Added some lights for night time atmosphere. Added the Well Rested bonus for sitting on the rocks, called Relaxed.

Revision 4: Tweaked the Navmesh so followers no longer get stuck (on the mesh at least) when running with FCR. Replaced the invisible chair markers with EH variants, which allows the follower to strip even if they don't activate a rock chair.

Revision 5: Redid the way the rock chairs and other markers apply the Well Rested bonus and Stripping script, so that they strip every time they activate the marker (it never used to reapply it while the spell was already in effect). The Relaxed Bonus has been replaced with the proper Well Rested Bonus. Added more clutter, more rock chairs and an extra marker. Added three more bathers (which revealed some hilarious vanilla dialogue not normally spoken). Added a cooking pot. Tweaked the Navmesh again so NPCs didn't get stuck on the chairs as often.

Revision 6: Resolved issue where actors would not strip when sitting on the rocks. This was due to a bug with the CK where it didn't pack the script files, so I've manually created a new BSA. The Nexus version contains the loose files, which may change once I start working on Revision 7.

Revision 7: Set the Hunters as essential so their bodies won't clutter up the hot pools in the event of a dragon attack. Added an Alchemy Lab. Tweaked the Navmesh again.

Serana decided to join my soak and took off her clothes. After we left she complained about the sun not being good for her skin and I turn around to see that she is still naked. 10/10 this mod got that vampire to show off some skin in a rather hilarious way.
