City Shacks

In 1 collection by Ticklefeather
Ticklefeather's House Mods

City Shacks adds a small player “shack” to each of the major cities. These residences are intended to bridge the gap between a single night’s stay in an inn and becoming a thane and purchasing a house. Every shack is different and offers slightly different amenities. Each shack blends into its city’s architecture and provides safe storage. This mod does not intend to take the place of the vanilla houses. The shacks are well appointed but small and therefore not the best place for your spouse.

Are you a dark elf and feel like a hypocrite buying a mansion in Windhelm? Now you can live in the Grey Quarter! Do you feel like a traitor when, as a Stormcloak, you plan to burn Whiterun to the ground? Don’t buy Breezehome!

You can find the key to each shack in a nearby lock box. If you enjoy roleplaying, then pay rent into the lockbox (not required).

City Shack Locations:
Markarth – inside the Warrens
Riften – behind Boli’s house (turn left upon entering the city, look behind iron gate)
Solitude – across from Erikur’s cellar door (in wall to the right as you approach the Blue Palace)
Whiterun – immediately to the right upon entering the city (across from the forge)
Windhelm – in the Grey Quarter across from the gate to the docks (you'll have a flat-mate but he is a merchant!)

Please leave your comments and suggestions to help me better this mod.

Would you consider porting this to Skyrim Special Edition (on Nexus)

not to worry, elisabethjacksonhall is working on an overvault of her mod which will be compatible with open cities, so the entrance of her mod is gone.
Thx for answering,

@Antares Thank you for your kind words. Sorry to hear about the conflict though. Riften is a crowded place.

One little conflict that I have noticed, and I suspect it is with the mod. „Brynjolf has time for you“ from your „Sister moddingtalent“ elisabethjacksonhall.
I think there is a conflict between the two entrances, they are probably in the same cell.
I don‘t get the entrance to the thievesguilds apartment and cannot even enter it through the cistern.
I shall now try what happens if I unsubscribe your mod. – regrettfully, since I still need it in Markarth and Windhelm- but I want to see what happens. Just thought I let you know (and elisabeth too).

once again you have provided us with an excellent mod. and a great idea! As ever lovingly executed and wonderfully immersive. You are one talented modder!
This mod. works wonderfully well with „Life another Life“ and all sneaky stile play like Thieves guild and Brotherhood.

A must for all those who don’t want to be burdened with to much property!

Please carry on the good work and thankyou very much for sharing your work!

Awk! City Shacks is not on SSE!!! My player is homeless -- have to rent a room by the night in one of those crummy inns. I'm sure she got bedbugs from the Bannered Mare...

DarkLustre, I tried your suggestion, but Jaxonz Positioner couldn't move Dawn of Skyrim's clutter. I may have to find an alternative "apartment" for Riften.
DarkLustre Mar 13, 2017 @ 10:14pm 
Raev, you can get Jaxonz Positioner and move the boxes, in game, to get at the key.

You can use the consol commands to open the door. I haven't used the creation kit in quite a while now so looking up the code for the key will take time. I'm glad you like the mod though. :D

I've tried this mod and favorited it, but it isn't compatible with Dawn of Skyrim (which I also use). Specifically, the key to the shack in Riften is blocked by or replaced with assorted boxes. Is there an alternative way to get the key? Maybe a console code?
