Spanish review, by JohnnySQS (from 08:47):

Don't forget to RATE if you enjoy this mod :)

Added version 1.5 !

- Fully functioning Book Shelf, with room for 14 books (7x2).
- New bow, the "Huntsman Bow".
- The Bandit Report is now called "Embershard Report", along with a few additional changes.
- Functional dining chairs.
- Even more details and clutter, both inside and outside.
- Fixed a series of smaller issues.
Update 29.04.2012
- Fixed a few minor issues.

The Hunter's Cabin of Riverwood is a free player home that will be available to all players, almost as soon as you start the game. The perfect mod for those who want a beautiful, simple yet functional house from the very beginning, whithout feeling that you're ruining, or going against the lore. (perfect for your hunter/ranger/archer character)

This is NOT the ultimate player house, for the simple reason that it's not suppose to.

=== How do I get this House? ========================

Simple, just go to Embershard Mine (the first "Mine" icon that appears on your compass when you escape from Helgen). Once inside the mine, fight your way to the treasure room (you can't miss it), there you will find a key named "Hunter's Cabin Key" and a Bandit Report (if your interested in the background story). Finish the dungeon and exit through the rear entrance, once outside just continue towards Riverwood.

The screenshots explains it even better.


=== Features: ===================================

- New player house/lodge, just outside Riverwood.

- Realistic background story ("Bandit Report" and "Hastily Written Note").

- Book Shelf, with room for 14 books (7 x 2).

- Lost of plants and flowers (Ingredients) around the cabin.

- Safe storage chests.

- Fully functioning Book Shelf, with room for 14 books (v1.5)

- Cooking Pot.

- Tanning Rack.

- Grindstone.

- Huntsman Bow + 100 Steel Arrows.

- Archery Skill Book.



- I'm using the Creation Kit so all the cells I've visited (while making the mod) is marked as changed. I can confirm that nothing has been changed in other cells that the ones I've mentioned in my description. I might try to fix this at a later date.

- I want this to remain a simple, lore friendly house, so I do NOT plan to add any Mannequin, Alchemy Tables, Forges etc.

Please comment, rate, and please tell me if you have any issues.

All feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I love this mod! Started a new character recently and the key is MIA. Never had a problem before with previous play throughs. How can I fix it?

I Love Cabins (They're So Cozy!) So Having One Right Next To One Of My Favorite Towns Is Very Helpful! The Only Problem I Have Is Sitting Down At The Table, Or Moving Around, And Objects Are Bumping And Rolling All Over. Is There A Way You Can Make Them Not Spin Out At The Slightest Touch, Or Remove A Few? Cheers!

You nailed exactly what i think you wanted to do, my only thought is have you thought about adding a Cupboard? or barrel inside the house for the kitchen? For food storage, mainly meat.

Hey, just wondering if the sacks and barrels just outside of the home are safe for storage?
