>>TROUBLESHOOTING AND F.A.Q<<

>Q. A WALL/TOWER/ROCK IS NOT SHOWING..
A. The creation kit has a known bug that sometimes fails to load large statics. Simply re-load a save game or fast travel back and forth a few times as it is the best remedy for this until Bethesda release an update for it.

>Q. STORED POSSESSIONS ARE MISSING..
A. Most of the time this is due to authors updating their mods, house mods especially, and as this description mentions several times, backup those data files and save games to avoid the headache! Simply delete the lastest data file and restore your backup of the previous version to revert to a last known good configuration. I will update the mod in larger updates rather than many smaller ones, and when the mod is finished there will be a CLEAR message indicating that it safe to store your possessions for good. I also give warning if I am about to update the mod. If you need more details on how this works, leave a comment about it, I will write back!

>Q. SPOUSE OR NPC WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY..
A. Scripting the spouse to move in is a little harder than you think. Hence why almost no house mods have it. Try this mod by 'Amgepo & Emma' that allows your spouse to live anywhere; http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=11370
In regards to NPC's not functioning properly: Quote from the creation kit webpage "There is currently an issue causing navmeshes in .ESPs to stop working if you travel a few cells away from where they are placed. NPCs stop moving and will not resume until the game is restarted. This issue is being addressed, and a fix is in the works."

>Q. My NPC has a grey face..
A. Another creation kit bug. A fix by Bethesda will eventually happen. This bug affects all new NPC's created and even copied versions of exsisting NPC's.

>Q. MANNEQUINS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY..
A. This is another Creation kit bug. If they are walking or not displaying armour try fast travelling or save game re-load. If they are not in the right spot, go to where the trigger is (where they should be) and equip them with armour. 9/10 times they will appear back in the right spot!

>Q. MY GAME CRASHES TO DESKTOP (CTD)..
A. This can be from many things. Load order, conflicting mods or corrupt save/data files are common causes. Unfortunately there is not much I can do, Bethesda may release a CK update that may resolve this. Until then try using a clean save or try mod conflict resolution troubleshooting.

>Please try these general troubleshooting tips for any difficulties;
-- Reload your save game or load a different save game.
-- Fast travel to another location then come back to the problem area.
-- Exit Skyrim then restart it again.
-- Disable all mods via Skyrim (un-check the boxes) then enable them all again. Load orders can be issues as well.
-- Use your backup of the plugin data file as described in the first question above.

FUCKING AMAZING Crim5on Duck!! Fantastic Job! Keep it up.

The Problem with the dissappearing walls really got on my nerves after a bit. Greystone Castle doesn't seem to have this problem so I'm just keeping that one. A for effort and I'll keep watching for a fix.

@Savage - Sorry mate it is a bit hard to understand what you mean. If its NPC's dissapearing there is not much I can help with as no one else has reported that particular issue and also the fact I no longer make mods or play Skyrim- leading to a lack of knowledge on my part. Try general modding troubleshooting is my best advice.
