just visited this place, and i think it's great. only 2 things missing 1- as the father was a less resputable fellow he should have had a secret entrance for his comings and goings. and 2 if Wulferd had left a recipe for his ale hidden somewhere. but otherwise great little house

While I agree that Riverwood is rather built-up, there was still room for one more little house back there. It did seem to fit in with the other houses.

what about in the western mountains borderimg falkreath hold? It could still be within the general area.

@ I've really been meaning to redo this mod. This was my very first one to make after finishing all the CK tutorials. It is very messy. But I love the story so much, I think if I do remake it, I'll leave it at least nearby. You are certainly right about Riverwood being crowded!
The Grey Paladin Feb 5, 2013 @ 9:34am 
I think you should put this house somewhere else. Riverwood is too crowded. I think this house or another like it literaly built into a cliff or mountain side with the front of the house being normal and a doorway without a door just like a drape over it leading down into sub levals with rooms for followers and kids and a wife or two. The place would be abandoned and you would just build it up adding what you wanted. It would require hearthfire but it is cheap I would assume many people have it and besides it would be an awsome mod.

Oh, I do! I just have it disabled for the time being; my highest-level character lives in Hjerim and wants to keep his dining table. :-)

@ Aaron_of_Mpls Yikes! This was my first mod and is a bit "messy." I cannot update it and really need to make a new version. I've been intending to do a new version for a while now but am easily distracted.

I'm glad you like it.

This mod seems to delete some banquet tables in my game, leaving all the items on them on the floor. It happens with only this mod enabled, and doesn't happen with only this mod disabled. The specific tables I've noticed missing are the table near the right-side wall of Dragonsreach as you enter the front door (next to court mage Farengar's rooms), and the dining table in the main room in Hjerim. I haven't checked for others yet.

Other than that, nicely done! The lair under the house is quite cool.

Bah. Crash and burn. I just finished a new mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=93169096 so I should be able to work on a rerelease of this one soon.
Ticklefeather  [author] Aug 31, 2012 @ 11:25pm 
I'm not sure. I'll try it now!
SirBeast Aug 31, 2012 @ 11:24pm 
Did you load it with the update.esm
Ticklefeather  [author] Aug 31, 2012 @ 11:23pm 
@ The Unknown I like your suggestions but I can't seem to update this mod without crashing the CK. I may rerelease it so that I can update.
SirBeast Aug 11, 2012 @ 5:19pm 
Oh and can you give the mead in the house a name to make it seem realish.
SirBeast Aug 11, 2012 @ 5:16pm 
Can you make it less of an earie sound and more toward the everyday sound of skyrim.
Ticklefeather  [author] Aug 7, 2012 @ 5:13am 
Hi there Thanos1. I'm glad you like this mod. It was my first one, so it is a bit messy in the CK. I use this as my starter house for any new characters I make and I haven't lost any items. I now know how to stop the weird mannequin movement but I can't seem to update this mod without crashing the CK. Argh. I haven't used the CK in about a month now, so maybe I should check for updates and try to change this one again.
Lazarus Jul 20, 2012 @ 11:23am 
cool housemod, nicely done with the story and all. usual trouble with mannequins moving around and you could make some stuff (like the "water tap") static. keeps people from pulling it out of the wall to see what it is. all in all a satisfying hidden lair that for once doesn't have bloodstains everywhere. :D

only question left is: what is the key to the spirit of the fox? (looked at the place in CK and couldn't find another door)
oh and are all containers secure? because some don't have an owner mapped. although most are non respawnable. (most because i didn't check all of them)
thanks
SirBeast Jun 20, 2012 @ 4:14pm 
Thanks for replying, so can you add a fence near by that served the family and now you. And can there be a secret portal to the ragged flagon.
Ticklefeather  [author] Jun 20, 2012 @ 10:05am 
@ jashay Thanks for the suggestions. I'd rather keep it empty to fit with the story of it having been shut for a long time before the brother and sister left. It is fully Navmesh'ed though, so your follower can come in with you when you take over the place.
SirBeast Jun 19, 2012 @ 6:12pm 
and theif follower?
SirBeast Jun 19, 2012 @ 6:12pm 
CAn you add a fence in the secret area and maybe a blacksmith?
Ticklefeather  [author] May 2, 2012 @ 7:07am 
Thanks Bedevere! And also for your comments and suggestions on Roriksberg.
<<OI>> Bedevere May 1, 2012 @ 4:32pm 
Came here via Roriksberg mod. I like this place, feels like a bat cave!
Ticklefeather  [author] Apr 21, 2012 @ 5:22am 
Increased the lighting in the underground areas.
Rylande Mar 13, 2012 @ 2:46pm 
Still can't see any key :(
Ticklefeather  [author] Mar 9, 2012 @ 1:26am 
Two quick little updates to the key placement and lighting. I hope this helps. Have a great weekend everyone!
Rylande Mar 6, 2012 @ 10:04am 
Good mod, from the looks of the screenshots a good house (hideout), too bad the key is invisible, but you're on it from the looks of things :)
Oralsallad #Freehoxton Mar 4, 2012 @ 1:04pm 
It's a great home, but I think it's a bit dark, I can hardly see anything? Or maybe it's just me?

Maybe my other mods screw something up, I have RCRN 2.0 mod (Legacy) and realistic indoor lighting.
Ticklefeather  [author] Mar 2, 2012 @ 12:30am 
@rjmcguire Thanks. I think I'll just put it on top of the pile this weekend as an update.
rjmcguire Mar 1, 2012 @ 11:03pm 
Thanks. I switched off clipping and looked under the dirt pile. I was then able to pick up the key by scanning around, key was invisible and under the dirt pile.
Ticklefeather  [author] Mar 1, 2012 @ 2:18am 
@MK Saibot & Ganguro666 Thanks! I'm glad you like the mod. @ rjmcguire there is a screenshot of the key above. It's near the fern, under the torch to the right of the iron door.
rjmcguire Feb 29, 2012 @ 10:49pm 
Hi, I just can't find that key. I scanned the whole dirt pile to the right of the door... nothing.
Any ideas?

Thanks
BryanGTR Feb 29, 2012 @ 8:59pm 
Wow perfect heck ya all you need home
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 28, 2012 @ 8:08am 
Hey there Silentshot. Thanks! Busy with orcs atm. :D
Silentshot Feb 28, 2012 @ 6:20am 
Tigerlily: I am impressed... I like it a lot. Cannot wait to see what else you come up with.
Johnny Feb 28, 2012 @ 1:38am 
Excellent home. So good not to have to travel all over to get things done. Definitely gets a rgreat rating from me.
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 28, 2012 @ 1:17am 
@Goden.ca Yes, please do look at the mod in the CK. You'll see some Omni lights strewn about as well as the candle/fire light.
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 28, 2012 @ 1:11am 
@ Thellorms Nor'Fein I'm sorry you found searching for the hidden part of the house frustrating. I meant it to be a fun little puzzle. In reading the journals you should be looking for something hidden. The bookshelf in the brewery/basement is hiding the tunnel. Move things around. Look for a way to move the bookshelf. Once you've found your way further down, remember what the journal says about the key.
I hope you'll give it another go.
Thalestr Feb 28, 2012 @ 12:00am 
@ElderStatesman It seems running too many player houses causes massive instabilty. I cannot run more than 2 or 3 without crashing every 15 minutes.
Elder Statesman Irmc Feb 27, 2012 @ 9:17pm 
Very pretty pictures. Causes my game to crash. Unsubscribing. Can't figure out why player housing would cause a crash, especially since it causes a crash without any other player housing installed.
Cody Sheffield Feb 27, 2012 @ 5:13pm 
Maybe I'm daft or something, but I cant find a key in a dirtpile or anything. I see wind coming from behind a bookshelf leading me to believe theres something behind it but theres no way to interact with it. Is this intentional? And from below comments, people walk into it? Is that intentional? This was a bit of a mind twist for me, sorry... unsubscribed. :(
Thalestr Feb 27, 2012 @ 2:33pm 
I'm scratching my head in wonder about why the lighting is so dark. Some hallways will actually brighten up when I wakl into them, but the game will darken again when I leave the hallway and enter the room. Blargh. I guess I could just load it up in the CK and increase the lighting strength.

Spouses in mod houses. Check out "Spouses Can Live Everywhere" by Amgepo and Emma. http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=11370#content
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 27, 2012 @ 10:07am 
@Goden.ca I'm sorry this is happening for you. As you can see in the screenshots above it's not overly dark inside. Anyone else having this issue? Any suggestions?
Thalestr Feb 27, 2012 @ 9:26am 
Nope. Most caves and dungeons look fine with both ENB turned off and on. The upstairs brewary looks fine, but as soon as I walk into the bookshelf door everything suddenly turns dark. The main entrance room after that looks fine,but many of the side rooms are quite dark. Even if I turn ENB off it still looks dark. (Compared to normal dungeons)
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 26, 2012 @ 11:37pm 
@Goden.ca Wow, it really isn't dark to me in the creation kit or in game. Is it difficult for you to see while in caves and dungeons? I think this must be something to do with your settings.
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 26, 2012 @ 11:35pm 
@one_of_3.7billion I'm glad it is working for you and that you like it!
Thalestr Feb 26, 2012 @ 11:23pm 
The updated version helped with the light a bit, but it is still way too dark for me. Some rooms, such as the main entrance in the underground section, are lit decently, but other parts are still too dark. I didn't even know there was some bookshelves in places until I wildly waved my crosshairs around in the dark.
Ticklefeather  [author] Feb 26, 2012 @ 11:15pm 
@Androo and Mishak9 if you are standing facing the locked iron door, the key is to your right in the dirt pile under the torch. Look next to the fern. You must mouse over the key to be able to pick it up.
mishak9 Feb 26, 2012 @ 3:52pm 
I have the same issue as Androo - can't find the key anywhere in the dirt pile.
Androo Feb 26, 2012 @ 2:40pm 
Don't see the key at all. Looked around that dirt pile for a good 5 minutes, tried retarting the game and no dice.
