Description
City Shacks adds a small player “shack” to each of the major cities. These residences are intended to bridge the gap between a single night’s stay in an inn and becoming a thane and purchasing a house. Every shack is different and offers slightly different amenities. Each shack blends into its city’s architecture and provides safe storage. This mod does not intend to take the place of the vanilla houses. The shacks are well appointed but small and therefore not the best place for your spouse.

Are you a dark elf and feel like a hypocrite buying a mansion in Windhelm? Now you can live in the Grey Quarter! Do you feel like a traitor when, as a Stormcloak, you plan to burn Whiterun to the ground? Don’t buy Breezehome!

You can find the key to each shack in a nearby lock box. If you enjoy roleplaying, then pay rent into the lockbox (not required).


City Shack Locations:
Markarth – inside the Warrens
Riften – behind Boli’s house (turn left upon entering the city, look behind iron gate)
Solitude – across from Erikur’s cellar door (in wall to the right as you approach the Blue Palace)
Whiterun – immediately to the right upon entering the city (across from the forge)
Windhelm – in the Grey Quarter across from the gate to the docks (you'll have a flat-mate but he is a merchant!)

Please leave your comments and suggestions to help me better this mod.

@psyckosama Yes, I've considered it but it always seems to be at the bottom of my ongoing mod project list. I'm very glad that people are still discovering this mod. It's one of my favorites. I do see the need for seperate shacks as some conflict with newer mods. At the moment, I'm busy playing Minecraft before any horrible changes kick in, but I'll move City Shacks up on my list.

Also, the Whiterun key box is directly to the right of the shack door on the ground next to the main gate.

Have you considered making these mods into separate mods so if someone wants one of the houses but not the other, they can?

Also, where's the key for the whiterun shack?

@ djohns I'm glad it's working for you now.

Hi Tickle,
I took off one of my Markarth mods and the shack appeared. City shacks is a nice mod, thank you for making it. I'm not into the palaces, just a place to get sleep credits and to store stuff.

@ djohns No, I haven't relocated the Markarth shack but perhaps I should. It conflicts with MadFrenchie's Markarth mod. He placed a NPC room in the same space.

Very nice. Love the shacks in Whiterun, Solitude and Riften but there is no shack at the Markarth Warrens when I play. Was the Markarth shack relocated?

only used the one in whiterun so far but absolutely perfect!

@Ticklefeather
Ya, I have that problem in inns a lot because I'm using a few mods that increase the population in cities (Populated Cities, Inconsequential NPCs and Immersive Wenches). The game spreads them out then they go about their routines which end up being sitting on my inn room's chairs and sleeping in its bed. Its kinda comical. Those mods really do make cities feel like cities, though.

@ Game-Tourist I'm glad you like it! Your pricing looks great to me. And as to your wandering wenches...um....I'll go with feature!

Liking this mod so far since my characters tend to be rather nomadic.

I've been giving some thought, for gameplay/roleplay purposes as to how much they should cost to rent, lease or buy. Maybe double the inn cost for one night. Half of the price of the vanilla home to buy and 10% of that for a 1 year lease
so in Whiterun for example:

Stay a night at the Bannered Mare: 10 gp
Stay at the city shack: 20 gp
Buy the city shack: 2,500 gp
Lease the shack for a year: 500 gp

The last option is probably over-think but I threw in for s*** & grins


Interestingly...
I did have "wenches" from the "immersive wenches" mod wander into the Whiterun shack to sit down or use the Alchemy lab. Not sure if that's a bug or a feature :-)
