The Throne-Rooms in Skyrim are looking very boring.
With "Overhauled Throne Rooms" i tried to give every throneroom a different Style, so that every throne is unique and not a boring little chair in the middle of a big room....
Now every Throne has its own style and some Jarls even got house Pets!

Now its possible to sit on the throne and look around.
Also possible to FASt TRAVEL from every indoor-location.
Use with caution.
Bethesda locked 3rd person when sitting on thrones.
Now you can freely move the cam and enjoy the view:)

If you find any bugs please report them to me.
You are welcome for constructive critics.
as always, waiting for critics to work this out as perfect as it is possible for me.
Any suggestions or bugreports are welcome.

Have Fun

Palace of Kings:
Replaced Talos Statues with Bears,
added Bearheads to the walls, returned Dog

replaced all blue fires with more lore friendly normal looking fires.

VERSION 1.3 "normalized" Light color Version:

DAWNSTAR (pet fox):
Left static animals in Dawnstar as they were. Skald seems to be a Hunter and has many animalheads on the walls as trophies. So i think it is legitimate to give him some stuffed big animals like a bear and a sabrecat.
No other Jarl has static animals in his Throneroom, except Jarl Skald.
Dimmed light about 50%

MARKARTH (pet Dwemer Spider):
-Rearranged runed stands
-Added Magelight sources to Spheres in front of throneroom.

WINTERHOLD (no pet):
Removed Static Wolves and Mammoth, added ribs to the throne and placed rescaled Candlelights (x1.5 bigger)
added (non-pickable) weapons around the throne
removed one light, dimmed all other lights about 50%.

Removed Static troll and Deer from Falkreath throne. Added one pair of horns.
Dimmed Light about 50% slightly yellow colored

WHITERUN (no pet):
Removed all Dragon Skulls except a few on the throne,
Placed some Weaponplates with different weapons,
symmetric with other side of the big dragonskull, for all symmetric-lovers out there;)
moved standing marker away from right statue of dibella, so the guard wont stand where statue is.
Dimmed lights in Dragonsreach about half.
