well i read through some of the comments to see if anyone else was having this problem and would another castle mod affect it,or the Become High King of Skyrim or Molag Bal's Inferno,because these to mods i just recently reanabled,so maybe they messed it up. Any ideas on what might conflict with this mod.

And by live there, I mean the people let me talk to them and i could take everything without having to steal it all.
EnderSquid Nov 26 @ 7:35pm 
why does everyone there say "you're not supposed to be in here" and everything I can pick up and put in my inventory says steal instead of take,I have the main quest done aswell.So do I have to beat the Dragonborn and/or Dawnguard DLCs for it to let me live there fully? Because the last playthrough I used this mod, I beat Miraak,and I was a part of the Dawnguard faction and it let me live there,I did beat the three dragons outside and didn't cheat in the key. Or do i have to be a certain level,because my character is only level 30.

I always sound like Im jumping off of .. something. and lastly. in the dragon's room. or whatever. TOO MANY. no i didnt die. I left. too many dragons, all roaring, shaking the earth, landing, too much sound. you literally blew my speakers. I have to go buy new ones. no lie!. but this is an amazing mod. I just wish it were closer in town and smaller.. so. I cont. to look.
QueenBee Jul 14 @ 5:49pm 
so. I went in game. this mod crashed me twice when I went close. once when a male pocahontas was chasing a bunny and killed it. the second was when i saved. I of course, climbed over a mountain t get to this. its on the absolute edge of the map. almost thought it was pass the map's boarder since I kept getting the message that I couldnt go that way.. the three dragons were great. found the key on the first one but kept fighting until the third one just.. left. i love the minimal loading doors. again its just still too big for me. i hoard and will walk SUPER slow to everything. but i swear it has more than enough manniguins for me. and weapons racks. the floor seems to be.. unlevel.
QueenBee Jul 13 @ 11:18pm 
Im absolutely in love with this.. its almost just exactly what I was looking for... I just need more colorful plants.. all over like crazy outside.. and hell, some inside too would be awesome!!.. Im a feen for color!!!!... and purple. purple is always a must!

Sorry guys I give this one a poor review. Just a helful suggestion and please take no offense, but here are a few pointers from an old school game designer. Big huge boxy rooms at every turn get very boring quickly. And dont overkill on the display cases and manequins next time. Its was a bit much. Try breaking up the rooms into smaller areas using props or half walls, more halls between rooms and much smaller rooms. Even for a castle it should have a flow to it. It honestly felt like walking through Sams Club. And most rooms looked the same. The pool room was unique I liked the concept but again very boxy. Try adding arch ways, catwalks and corridors to break things up more on your next mod. Nice attempt and not bashing your work. Just offering some helful pointers. Keep at it and Im sure the next one will be ever better.

Cheers.

it is located to the left of solitude and straight up from Darkfall cave. if you can't find it, i suggest you use the console command "tmm 1" to display all land marks and fast travel to it. if you don't want to keep land marks shown other than those you discover, enter "tmm 0". WARNING: "tmm 0" will remove all the locations you have previously found and you will have to discover them again.

how do i use the keyhole wall thing? i have all the claws. even the two halves of the amythest claw. pls help.
stefaniehoyer Jul 1 @ 4:40pm 
looks great from the outside, did not match to get into it because I am not the Dragonborn yet.
The guardian dragons do their job very well

I have never saw a mod so perfect, all is there for the player exigeant, large, practise, nice, in one word AWESOME ! Very good job, I love it ! Thank you very much :)

Move your whole family and friends in using the mod Custom Family Home, link in description ;)
cglaiven Mar 22, 2015 @ 8:24pm 
i love this but can you maybe add more people im getting super lonely. This giant castle and only 2 people. Maybe like a wife and dog and stuff idk just an idea
graytonio Mar 21, 2015 @ 1:55pm 
THIS IS AN AMAZING MOD! But I think it could be better if you implement the items from the blacksmiths basement and the scholars library. I use these mods and it is kind of annoying to have to jump back and forth and not be able to enjoy the whole of the palace.
Horny_Turtle129 Mar 21, 2015 @ 12:51am 
im finding it a bit difficult to find
Totally Innocent Feb 28, 2015 @ 10:42pm 
A very nicely made mod, it's nice to feel the true pride and importance of being the Dragonborn for once (because you certainly don't get it from anyone in the rest of the game). It's cool to have a place that serves all purposes no matter you're play style. It also makes an excellent place to browse all the

My only complaint would be the unbalanced amount of resources that come with the place. It would have been better (in my opinion at least) if it had the same layout and named chests, but empty. It would have balanced the game alot more and would have been more satisfying to fill everything up myself.

Regardless, thank you for the cool mod!
Ravenyth Feb 11, 2015 @ 6:01pm 
I loved the library, the alchemy and forge area, and all the storage. Having a mine is extremely handy! Are the giant slaves in the mine supposed to be attacking me?
Alaska Feb 11, 2015 @ 2:45pm 
i love this mod the entire castle but theres a billion weapon rooms and i got lost but pros are better than the cons
miuw_seabee Feb 11, 2015 @ 2:23pm 
What do I do if the thrown doesn't have the spell book?
G20  [author] Feb 11, 2015 @ 1:01pm 
jlblair12
why start with. I didn't like it atall, then add a few things you did like.
The layout is really very simple, all the essentials are really very close at hand. It's not like you have to walk through any other rooms before you get to the throne room, which doubes as the main display area, all amenities are directly accessabe from that main hub.. things like the mine and dungeon and other things you might use less often are further afield.
I am not a player with just a few hundered hours, I have plated for thousands!
I see you've started using the creation kit, I'll look forward to your Ideal abode ;)
jlblair12 Feb 10, 2015 @ 2:14am 
ok i personally didn'tlike this mod at all. it was well done; however, it scared the crap out of me. it took me a while to find and why did you give the torture victims a speed of 1000? it was scary fast. i also got very lost. the spell tome was a smart thing to add. in my opinion a good house mod should be big enough to hold your stuff but also easy enough to walk through so you know where you are. for me it just wasn't my style but you did a really good job on the creation of the house itself.
Alaska Feb 4, 2015 @ 5:33pm 
where is he castle
Ravenyth Feb 2, 2015 @ 4:27pm 
Wow, this is enormous! I doubt I'll ever be able to fill all those mannequins and display cases. Would have loved it if one or two of those weapons rooms were trophy rooms for animals instead, and maybe a garden room for growing ingredients. Lord knows there's plenty of space, LOL. Otherwise, stellar mod.

This Mod IS fkin sweet THANK YOU a house cant possibly get any better

For some reason, im stil not gettiong notifications about this mod, sorry for the delayed responces (thanks steam)
Bloodsport: dawnguard unfriendly doesnt work if you have dawnguard DLC installed! Tey are in different locations, also dawnguard friendly has some extra rooms, but less NPC's
DRbobsickel: Maybe you have abother mod installed which changes something in this area of the map? otherwise, your the first person with that problem out of about twenty five thousand.
HanMinoJibun: Not sure exactly what you mean?
HanMinoJibun Jan 23, 2015 @ 7:28pm 
All of them is Not life WHY !
DRbobsickel Jan 17, 2015 @ 4:10pm 
for me it is outside the map i cant get to it is that a glich or what do i need to do to get to it
i killed the dragons i jest cant get to it
*Bloodsport* Jan 15, 2015 @ 2:13pm 
whats the diffrent between the unfriendly and the friendly "place of the dovahkiin" ????
G20  [author] Jan 12, 2015 @ 3:10am 
hi Alpha.Xtra
the palace is in the far north west with map marker. the map marker should be there as soon as you have let the mod validate. 'There is a screen shot of the location in the pictures at the top.
there are three levelled dragons outside. the key is inside the named one.
I hope you find it ok and like it ;)
Xtra Jan 10, 2015 @ 11:32am 
I cant find the Catsle...there is nothing
G20  [author] Jan 8, 2015 @ 1:36pm 
You need hearthfire to run custom family home, it's also got to be used from a fresh start (it woud work otherwise, but to ensure game stability).
IrishSpring Jan 8, 2015 @ 11:25am 
Sadly i downloaded the Custom Family Home mod and my game can't seem to start with it and the Dovahkiin Palace and the few armor mods i have on my game.
G20  [author] Jan 8, 2015 @ 10:58am 
Thanks Omega_cM, you can Move a hoste of people in as well as your whole family and friends in using the mod Custom Family Home, there's a link in the description. The origional 'dawnguard unfriendly' version had more NPC's including alchemist, but with custom family home appearing it seemed better to let people choose their own onterage and guards. I'm actually constantly trying to simplify my mods, but usually get carried away.
IrishSpring Jan 8, 2015 @ 6:25am 
You should have added personal guards, an alchemest, a stable master, a barracks, garden, and other NPC players necessary to a castle. But the castle itself is masterfully crafted and very intriguing.

Hi [UGFP]YisraelaBatAhava
for some reason i didn't get a notification that you comented..
You can teleport in with the spell on the throne and your companion will come in with you ;)
The satchels should be labled, I'm pretty sure they are. My decent computer is broken for the moment, so i cant check right now, but i will asap, and put it right if theyre not labled, thanks for the heads up. and i'll let you know whats up
[UGFP]YisraelaBatAhava Jan 2, 2015 @ 8:59am 
Using the Dawnguard friendly one is even better. just a few points maybe to consider. satchels for soul shards and ingrediants. the unfriendly version has them and it helped alot in organizing. also Ariss and Lydia wont come into the Palace. The went into the Unfriendly version fine with out a problem but they wont enter the friendly version. Otherwise its awesome. And thanks for your help before

For some reason, I've not been getting notices of posts, sorry for te delays in reply.
Big thanks for the endorsments and compliments :)
answers..
The skulls are just for collecting, there's a link in the description to tell you more on them ;)
If you couldn't find it you probably have by now.. Usually people havnt let the mod validate (download) first..Otherwise it's north west of solitude with map marker ;)
Slayer666qc.
NOT a common problem! I should suggest to go back to the save before you arrived. Or you could use the console command 'unlock' to open the door
Beldarus,
they all work, some work upside down which I find better for displaying some modded and vanilla weapons, weapon rack triggers can be damaged during a playthrough.. Its happened to me in plenty of houses vanilla, other modders and my own places, It just happens.. But, yeah, youre probably experiencing a couple of upside down ones, the ones which can be useful ;)
