City Shacks

In 1 collection by Ticklefeather
Ticklefeather's House Mods

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.

Don’t forget to use the RATE and FAVORITE buttons if you like City Shacks!

For people who want a rent option: Taxes of the Nine Holds lets you set how much to pay in what hold how often, so you can pay 'rent' as taxes. And end up with bounties if you can't pay.

This needs to be added into the new HOLDS mod that overhauls all of the cities.

You should make buying them optional. Or like paying rent for them optional. Roleplaying it alone just feels cheap to me. That's the only issue or I'd download. xD Other than that it's a great mod, good job.

I love these shacks ! I use them a lot where I have no home.

@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.
