You could add a space at the black book on amethyst claws mask Dragonborn and talismans and pitcher novice - optional - registered weapons to have a suitable place for himself. And shelf jars of worms.

fixed it, just changed the load order and it's working again

Ni Nick Loudly, I have no clue why it stopped working. Try uninstalling and reinstalling this mod. Also put it lower in the load order since it is probably conflicting with some other mod's scripts those two things might help. Otherwise you might have to choose which mod to keep or not.

i can't interact with the teleporting statue in the teleportation room anymore...

Welcome to Castle Volkihar Redux comments section. I hope you enjoy this mod. Please read the following information.

I do not have time to support general questions about how to use mods with Skyrim. I will ignore these questions completely as I barely have time to support this free mod. See my FAQ.

Deleting mods after making a save is the #1 reason people experience issues with Skyrim while using mods. So, either roll back to a save from before you installed the mod you deleted or don't delete mods! You can safely "disable" mods in the first splash screen on game open under "Data".

2nd reason is mod compatibility. Installing mods that change original Skyrim game files that other mods rely on. When this happens the conflicting mods may break your game save.

jrjones0152, this mod does nothing to factions so I have no idea why it would conflict with better vampire lord. Conflicts happen when two mods try to change the same thing in Skyrim. This can sometimes be avoided through load order. Sounds like you have it under control through a re-install. Thanks for the update.
jrjones0152 Aug 24 @ 6:51pm 
Also I fixed the bug where it was not showing up, I just made a few new games and uninstalled and reinstalled.
jrjones0152 Aug 24 @ 6:50pm 
No I checked that several times. Also I have encountered a bug where with this mod installed, after becoming a vampire lord from harkon (using alternate start) he just stands there and says something along the lines of "do what I say or face the concequences" could that have something to do with the faction changes?
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 24 @ 1:14am 
Hi jrjones0152 , it sounds like you don't have the mod "enabled" under "data". See the screen shot below. Open skyrim to ti's openiung splash screen and choose "data". Then make sure there is a check next to "Castle Volkihar Redux".
jrjones0152 Aug 22 @ 12:23pm 
Hi, i uninstalled this mod a while back becaues i no longer wanted to play as a vampire, but now i do. However, when I try to go to the castle there is only the normal Volkihar, as if I didnt even install the mod. I can find the cells for the mod in the creation kit but not in game.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 18 @ 4:46pm 
Hi MA, yes there is. It's in a small bowl at the head of the alter where the wizards corpse is frozen. You will spawn a companion (a black spider) when you place it there.
MA Aug 18 @ 3:56pm 
Hey, is there a spot for Namira's Ring in the Deadric Tower? I can't find it
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 14 @ 11:14am 
No ayahawkeye, the molab bal worshippers are supposed to do that. They are your servants. All I can say is I"ve been supporting this mod for over 3 years. It's solid. When using mods they sometimes conflict or the install needs to be redone.
ayahawkeye Aug 14 @ 10:59am 
I don't have a follower mod, but will look through the ones I have when I get home and see what they say. I'm pretty new to mods so I've probably missed something. Could it have anything to do with the fact that the Molag Bal worshippers keep running in to kneel by the throne whenever I enter?
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 12 @ 12:46am 
Most likely it's a follower mod. One that changes factions on NPC's.
ayahawkeye Aug 11 @ 11:19pm 
I've done both of those things twice, still no joy. Guessing it's a mod conflict, though which one, I don't know. I don't have any others that affect Volkihar or anything major. Only have 23 mods, so I'll work though them later to see which one it is. Typical, it would happen to me
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 11 @ 5:37pm 
@ayahawkeye, if you are getting this issue it is because there is a mod conflict or you need to un-install and re-install this mod twice. That is the first thing on the FAQ and it usually works for this issue.

You can also try moving this mod to the last spot in your load order. Also covered on the FAQ here:

ayahawkeye Aug 11 @ 11:00am 
Absolutely love this mod!! Great work! Didn't realise how massive it would be, had great fun exploring it all :)

Only problem I have is that whenever I try to sleep or wait in the Master Throne Wing it says I can't do that when being asked to leave, even though I'm not being asked to and no one is hostile. Looked in the FAQ and the solutions there don't seem to be the issue, so either I'm being really dence or I've magically broken it which I seem to be good at doing...

Great job though, really like it :)

FurryPandaFury Aug 2 @ 2:25pm 
thanks, i forgot about the stupid candle, lol. great mod btw.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 1 @ 10:30pm 
FurryPandaFury, the soul cairne was never moved from the spot it's always been in from before this mod was ever made.

1.) It's in Valerica's Study at the very top of Valerica's Tower. Just keep going up until you can't go up anymore.

There is a secret fireplace door in the torture chamber. To get up there you'll need to turn a candle sconce on the wall to open the secret fireplace door. Then you can go on up to Valerica's Study where the entrance to the Soul Cairn is.

2.) Alternately you can also go through the Throne meeting room. It has a large oval table and blue fire pit in it's middle. Across from that table, through large double doors, up a large long staircase, going outside at the top of said stairs and crossing a bridge to Valerica's Study.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Aug 1 @ 10:21pm 
Hi kylefoster2010 , it's always nice to get positive feedback on the mod. Thanks!
FurryPandaFury Aug 1 @ 7:37pm 
I'm having a lot of trouble finding the entrance to the soul cairn, could you tell me where to find that?
kylefoster2010 Aug 1 @ 1:37pm 
FYI this mod works well with the Nord Hero mods. there is a merchant in the castle that sells Nord Hero arrows and makes crafting those arrows no longer a problem.
kylefoster2010 Aug 1 @ 1:34pm 
Had this Mod once before, Then Had to reset my computer for stupid reasons. I love this mod and it makes being a vampire worthwhile. Thanks so much!!!!!!
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 31 @ 3:13am 
Hi ジョーカー Player.additem, none of the empty guest rooms in the East Tower or even the corridor leading to the South Tower are being used by anyone. You can tell because it would say (this bed is owned) if you tried to use them. Also, in the CK I tagged those beds so followers could use them.

Since those guest room beds are the only beds in those two cells, they are the only choice. So depending on the mod you are using for your followers they should use those particular beds.

Please see descriptions for behaviors of follower mods you use for more specifics other than that, cause I can't tell you what their scripts tell follower's to do.

Hi Wulfwood, there are viewing rooms. Lots of them. There are lots of mannequins in the north tower, south tower and some in the Throne room.

If you go to this page you'll see links to maps of the castle. I hope they can help you find the rooms I mentioned above:
meet a real god Jul 30 @ 7:14pm 
hey i have some questions. are the rooms in the east tower being used by any npcs? if not can your followers sleep there if you tell them to stay in the east tower? also if they can will they travers the whole tower or just stay in the room?
Wulfwood Jul 30 @ 2:03am 
ummmmmmmm.... why is there no viewing room ith lots and lots of maniquins? I want to view my million armours.

Vastorix Jul 29 @ 9:41am 
Hello ! I would like to try this mod but I don't know how to start it, aside from being "in Solitude".
Can you tell how to get the quest started ?
Fanvsant Jul 27 @ 9:18pm 
Thanks man for the help.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 27 @ 8:57pm 
Hi It's Nacho Business, as stated in the 2nd paragraph of the description these are the requirements:

* Must have the Dawnguard DLC purchased and installed
* Install anytime but castle won't upgrade until "Touching the Sky" (get Auriels bow) is completed
* Works fine with the Dragonborn DLC (not required)
* Does not matter if you choose vampire or Dawnguard side <-------------ANSWER FOR NACHO
* No 3rd party tools or mods needed
Fanvsant Jul 27 @ 5:25pm 
Can I use this is I am dawnguard? If not, is there any mod that allows me to rebuild the Dawnguard castle
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 27 @ 6:29am 
Thanks Faerniir, I'm going to add this to my compatibility and FAQ pages.
Faerniir Jul 27 @ 3:35am 
If you want TES5EDIT to read every ini file this mod has, I advise you to get the TESNIP program as well, so TES5EDIT can read everything without saying "STAT (Load order is corrupted or out of order)" crap. The author used TESNIP with this mod, along with creation kit and TES5EDIT.

Forgot to also point out, you can also go to nexus and get a mod called Possessive Corpses, which will reduce the LOAD on your game saves, along with the optional mod for this game to clean up the corpses and will fix alot of problems with all mods that require corpses to be removed.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 23 @ 4:16am 
Hey Dad, It does not have "all the tags". IT ONLY HAS TAGS RELEVANT TO CONTENT IN THIS MOD! So, before you go making comments like this try reading the description and matching them to the tags. I did not falsely tag this mod. All that stuff is in the mod!

If you don't like the rating system then blame steam and complain to the Steam dev team. Don't blame me for tagging the mod properly.

People like you who blame me for shit I have no control over are fucking annoying.
Dad Jul 21 @ 3:22pm 
idc if its good or not he put every fucking tag and its annoying
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 19 @ 4:07pm 
Thanks for dropping by with the good comments Der Harryge and Fracture.
Der Harryge Jul 19 @ 4:18am 
a truly successful Mod
Empty_Fracture Jul 18 @ 8:26pm 
This is one of the best mods ever =D you did a really awesome job on it, plus the organs were a nice touch to the worship area
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 8 @ 6:20pm 
Hi Ughash, a list of quests and how to start them can be found on the FAQ here:

If the mod is not initializing instructions on that can be found on the FAQ here:

Let me know if these do not answer your question.
Ughash Jul 8 @ 5:39pm 
How do you get it to work? I Completed all the quests, the east tower is still empty for me. Idk where to go for the quest ;o
[LFG] Zroex'ihr Jul 1 @ 6:50pm 
oh ok thats cool :) just wanted to be able to make it like a dawnguard base
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jul 1 @ 6:48pm 
Hi [LFG] Zroex'ihr, I dont' have time to make anymore mods due to work and family hectic schedule. This mod was originally something I built only for myself but ended up sharing it. My vision has always been that of a "vampire castle home". I am big on Halloween, horror movies and the like, so for me this is what it was meant to be. I have had tons of requests but I have to stay true to my vision. Otherwise mod making gets pretty boring.
[LFG] Zroex'ihr Jul 1 @ 1:11pm 
can you clean up the blood and gore?
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jun 30 @ 10:05pm 
hi timoneijk, yes.
timoneijk Jun 30 @ 9:04am 
is the vampire hideout in solitude a player home after you have completed the quest?
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Jun 24 @ 9:43pm 
Hi |αттσ| Templar . I don't plan on making anymore. But ther are already some great Dawnguard style castles. That is one reason I made this one. Cause at the time there was no good Castle Volkihar mods. More on this here:
|αттσ| Templar Ghost Jun 24 @ 8:42pm 
hey i'm just asking but if your still making skyrim mods could you possibly make a redux for Fort Dawnguard? it sucks knowing that it has no mods to change it and it sucks more that its a wreck
