Shiv's Den (mountainshack.esp)

This mod, and any other mod I ever care to upload to Steam, will NEVER charge you any money. i don't want any donation either. Modding should be a free game for all, not a business in which fans and modders are being ripped off by the big companies.

Shiv's Den is a very basic player home in a cave on the mountain between Whiterun Hold and the Reach. It has nothing but a sleeping place, a fireplace with cooking pot, a chest, and a spectacular view over the entire landscape. There are two shrines in the near vicinity (Stendarr and Kynareth), and you can get water from the stream at the foot of the mountain. Also, there's deer to hunt, and a Forsworn vendor nearby if you have the Forsworn Faction Pack and can disguise yourself.

I think there are enough perfect house mods filled with everything, so this is just a basic camp for the weary traveller. I named it after my assassin char, Shiv, who refuses to live in those windowless city houses.

Since the mountain is completely devoid of animals and enemies, you should be able to sleep peacefully (unless it's raining cause the stupid cave roof leaks like hell). Of course, it's entirely possible that you wake up with a dragon in your face...

It's my first house mod so please notify me if you find a bug. It shouldn't conflict with anything unless you use a mod that changes this particular mountain between Swindler's Den and Fort Greymoor. It WILL conflict with The Undercity[] cause that mod places a cave entrance right where my little Kynareth shrine is. And although I really like the Undercity, I'm not going to adjust my mod because the idea behind Shiv's Den was to be alone out in the Wilderness, not sit right on top of a merchant's heaven (dang, that place DOES look awesome... *weeps* WHY did he have to use MY mountain for it???).


Subscribe. There are no additional files except the description picture ShivsDen2.png which will end up in SteamApps/common/skyrim/Data/Images and which is safe to delete. Since I only used Vanilla files, there should be no conflict with Dragonborn, Dawnguard or other DLCs.


Simply unsubscribe, open your skyrim launcher and uncheck the mountainshack.esp file. NOTE: There's no "shivsden.esp", just mountainshack.esp

Yeah, that would be awesome! And what I really love about this mod is that its perfect if for are using for example: build your own home, this is a perfect place to chill and drop off your loot before going hunting again :D

PS: You should add - open your skyrim launcher and uncheck the mountainshack.esp file, to the uninstallation place, Just in case someone did not know that (I did not first time I wanted to remove a mod XD

Very nice, I love the seat on the other side of the mountain! But it could be better with a cooking pot :)
