@蔡老師: You should be fine as long as you haven't adopted two kids yet.
蔡老師 Oct 16 @ 11:38pm

Thanks, my Dovahkiin kills monsters cause he too is a big softy (under all that ebony).
Vahlan Sep 30 @ 5:16am 
Cool TY for info and patience! I'll take another stab at it later today.
TMPhoenix  [author] Sep 29 @ 11:26pm 
@Vahlan: Again: Use the Cell view (look at the various windows and look at the one titled Cell View) and right click to edit the marker you've placed. I can select a marker there and edit the placed reference.
Beyond that I'd suggest looking at the various tutorials on CreationKit.com I think there is/was at least one that went into detail on how to edit references during building of a new area.

Tried that but issue is I can't select the map marker in reference window of location. The home I've created is located in Solstheim could this have something to do with it? I also tried selecting horse marker and same thing....the target icon remains red! Parent location is set to "Solstheim Location". I got np not making this compatible with this mod but I know subscribers are gonna ask for it to be. Just frustrating I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, thanks in advance for any suggestions.

@Vahlan: Try selecting it in the right list of the Cell view. Right click and edit it.
Vahlan Sep 23 @ 7:43am 
Running into trouble at first step in making a home compatible. When I attempt to select map marker in reference window while setting up the exterior location it simple won't select it, any ideas? Pointless bothering to move forward with mod if I can't get past literaly first step and I have done before so don't understand why it's not working now!

@Mr. Bacon: the custom home support should work whether you start a new game or not, but the ability to adopt more than 2 kids may not. If you've adopted no or only one child it should still work. If you're already at 2, it won't work unless you start a new game.
Mr.Bacon Aug 9 @ 11:28pm 
is there a way to use this even after playing the game? Ive only heard about this mod reasently, and long story short, I'm far ahead enough to not want to star over to use this mod. but I really want a family frinedly mod home.
Kclulu Jul 27 @ 12:59pm 
I actually just solved the issue, I think. Reloading a save prior to adopting any children made it work. Thank you, though!
TMPhoenix  [author] Jul 27 @ 12:54pm 
@Kclulu: could you PM me your load order on the Nexus? I could have a look.
Kclulu Jul 22 @ 11:46am 
@TMPhoenix: Nope. After looking through my mods I don't see anything that appears as though it would conflict.
mrwinn Jul 21 @ 3:52am 
Thanks, TMPhoenix for your response and I will try again, I love the Mod truely
TMPhoenix  [author] Jul 20 @ 11:55am 
@mrwinn: This mod does not alter the basic way adoptions are handled, so keep in mind that you should not be in the same area otherwise the kids will indeed never move. You need to be away from bothe their current location and the target location, and you should not wait. In stead do something that has you moving around. This should trigger a move.
mrwinn Jul 19 @ 12:11pm 
this is a great mod but liking in some areas, like when adopting in the pale the child never departed for my new home but all an all an excelent program for multiply adoptions
TMPhoenix  [author] Jul 16 @ 1:36pm 
@Kclulu: Sounds like a conflicting mod. Are you parhaps using the Prince and the Pauper?
EnderSword Jul 13 @ 8:16pm 
I really really wish this game was made for Mac, that's literally the only reason WHY I got a Mac cause my laptop lenovo couldn't handle Skyrim's bulkiness and kept freezing.

I really hope someday VERY VERY SOON they make this available for Mac as I got no money to get a different laptop right now, let alone an antivirus for said laptop...
Kclulu Jul 8 @ 10:02pm 
So, I've already adopted two kids, started a new game and everything. I've made all the extra beds and chests. It seems I can't adopt any more kids, though. I tell them I'll adopt them, they thank me, and afterwards only give generic responses upon me trying to talk to them where they usually say they'll pack their stuff and say bye to everyone. I haven't had problems before, as I've used this mod on past games, but this suddenly happened on a new game. Any idea as to why this happened? :<
TMPhoenix  [author] Jul 8 @ 5:36am 
@Vahlan: I've added a link on the nexus page where I keep a list of compatible homes.
TMPhoenix  [author] Jul 8 @ 5:04am 
@Lost Identity: Did you install this mod after already adopting 2? If so, you are stuck at 2 for your current playthrough.
Lost Identity Jul 7 @ 11:08pm 
It won't allow me to adopt any additional children aside from my two I already have. Help?
Vahlan Jul 4 @ 12:21am 
Firstly, great mod thank you. This inspired me to create a home to work with this mod here on steam. There seems to be very few others which surprised me. Anyhow I've had this up for awhile now and it's got a good response and feedback from subscribers. Please read the description and comments section. Heres the link:

TMPhoenix  [author] Jun 29 @ 2:09pm 
Installing after adopting 2 already, means you won't be able to adopt more during the current playthrough. Custom home support should still work.

Workbenches have nothing to do with this mod.

Did you build the ALL appropriate items in the home?
Wavier Joker Jun 27 @ 10:55pm 
I used the bless home spell but its not showing a workbench table and I cant adopt anymore kids I only have the 2 before this mod. Also does it only work for lakeview because I already built lakeview with a enchanters tower instead of a bedroom but i built a bedroom in dawnstars home and its not working after the spell what should I do?
PrinceZuko1030 Jun 5 @ 11:38am 
Thank you bro bro.
TMPhoenix  [author] Jun 5 @ 7:19am 
@PrinceZuko1030: it should be there already , under restoration. If your game is translated in one of the supported languages, the spell name should also be translated.
PrinceZuko1030 Jun 4 @ 8:11pm 
How do i get the spell to put them in my house.
Ghostwheel Jun 4 @ 5:43pm 
Thanks. Mostly just curious. Might try it just to see what happens when I get to the end of this play-through.
TMPhoenix  [author] Jun 4 @ 8:51am 
@Ghostwheel: Disabling mods is not supported in general, and they would probably misbehave, as they are no longer being managed by the adoption system while at the same time also no longer set up to behave like they did before adoption.
Ghostwheel May 31 @ 9:26pm 
What would happen if I have adopted more than 2 kids and then disabled this mod? Would the "extra" kids wander back to their default locations? Or would they stay put?
TMPhoenix  [author] May 9 @ 3:45pm 
@Fordo: It should be under restoration. The name will be translated if you are using a supported non-English language.
{F©©} Fordo May 6 @ 5:20pm 
I can't find the bless home spell. Help...
TMPhoenix  [author] May 5 @ 2:02pm 
@PotatoMasher: This can happen if there are kids sleeping in the wrong beds. The problem is that going to bed is a 2 step process: 1. Go to the approximate location of the bed 2. Find a bed within range.

If kids 1...2 go to bed first in certain cirumstances it can happen that they end up in the beds assigned to other kids. When they go to bed they go to the search location, but don't find any beds within range, so they do the next best thing (as far as an NPC in Skyrim is concerned) and just keep standing there.

You could try keeping the other kids awake long enough for them to get in to their own beds, but that tends to be difficult, since sleeping NPCs have a knack for going back to bed mid conversation.
PotatoMasher Apr 27 @ 4:45am 
I built the the 2 single beds upstairs and build the double bed upstairs, but instead of sleeping on the bed they stand besides it, even after i forced them to sleep they still stand beside the bed and do nothing for 12 hours until the other kids on the children's bed wake up and play
TMPhoenix  [author] Apr 27 @ 3:08am 
The HF homes can be set up to support more kids: build the bedroom wing + the 2 child beds, build the 2 single beds upstairs and build the double bed upstairs. The kids should use them, though I've seen issues with kids not finding their way in those homes before....
PotatoMasher Apr 27 @ 2:57am 
time to resort to the last option, say goodbye to heljarchen hall, thanks for the reply
TMPhoenix  [author] Apr 27 @ 1:51am 
@PotatoMasher: get a house with more beds?

TheSkyrimLord169 Apr 26 @ 10:33am 
@Antares Open Skyrim from steam. Before the fullscreen game opens, there should be a small screen with 5 options on it: "Play", "Options", "Data Files", "Tech Support" and "Quit". Click "Data Files" and untick either the prince and the pauper, or this mod (I wouldn't reccomend unticking this mod, because it is really good, but it is an option). If this doesn't work just find the prince and the pauper on community and unsubscribe to it.
Hope this helped.
PotatoMasher Apr 25 @ 5:38pm 
the first 2 kid i adopted are able to sleep on the child's bed, but the last 3rd and 4th kid i adopted are not sleeping, how do i fix that?
GangstaNerd Apr 22 @ 7:11pm 
It took forever but I figured out why it wasnt instaling
TMPhoenix  [author] Apr 21 @ 2:15pm 
@Nightmare Silouette: No it shouldn't interfere, but that doesn't mean that the homes and their surroundings are completely safe.
Nightmare Silhouette Apr 20 @ 3:21pm 
I adopyed two girls and then the little boy in dawn star,and when I went home he was dead in the entry way!Like can I fix that!I love the little guy cause he works so hard to just be able to eat and now he is dead!! T~T
Also I have the kill children mod,does that mod interfer with the multiple adoptions mod?
Antares Mar 23 @ 2:28am 
@TMPhoenix,
you were right, it was a mod conflikt: "Prince and the Pauper"! Which I read abaut on my return to Skyrim!
Thanx for your offer to help - I just did'nt know how to set abaout it.
TMPhoenix  [author] Feb 20 @ 3:18pm 
@mark: There is a mod for that, but if you use it, I can't guarantuee it not mess up the entire adoption system.
TheSkyrimLord169 Feb 20 @ 10:13am 
@mark idk if there is in the base game, but I think there's a mod for that.
mark Feb 20 @ 6:44am 
Is there a way to reset the adoption count to zero and start over, or should I restart the entire game ??
TMPhoenix  [author] Feb 2 @ 11:15am 
The street kids can be adopted, kids that are the orphanage (when the right conditions have been met), kids that lose both their parents. This all requires Hearthfire, since this is just an extension of the existing system.

Links to compatible custom homes can be found on the Nexus page (link in description).

@ShadowDragon_79: If you haven't adopted anyone, you should be fine.
