New Update!! (06/08/2014)
Leaf Rest: One Piece version 1.02 released! The DLC Hearthfire is required.
See the changes in the comments via the sticky post.
LF 2.3.1 = last version to not require any DLC. 


◆ About the House...

Welcome to Leaf Rest: One Piece, a customizable & interactive home designed in one cell to be a convenient place for the player to store and craft items, raise a family, and house followers. Many of the items in the house can be either interacted with or changed in game. This includes options for customizing whole interior rooms and decorations, statues, rugs, floors, containers, shelves, and more. The home is located in the town of Riverwood, directly across from the Sleeping Giant Inn. The front entrance faces towards the west, overlooking the river and the key to the house can be found resting in the mail post.*

Now compatible with Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions

Before your children can move into the house you must first activate the children's beds using the settings book in the main bedroom. After doing this, then cast the "Bless this home" spell provided by HMA somewhere inside of the home.


*If you cannot find the key to the home in the mail post, try moving the Leaf Rest esp to a later position in your load order. If the problem persists you can still access the home by going into console mode, selecting the door, and typing in the "unlock" command. An extra key can be found in the hidden safe.*

◆ Main Features...

*New! Leaf Rest Gardening System (Farming Animations)


The Leaf Rest gardening system now requires the player to draw water, till the soil, and apply fertilizer in order to produce good crops. Water the plants by first turning on the spigot, filling the bucket, and then carrying the water over to the garden for watering. Water with healthy minerals can also be drawn from the nearby river. A farming tool in the garden can be activated in order to till the soil. To the left of the gardening tool there are sacks that contain fertilizer. Apply fertilizer to give the farm healthy + fertile soil. While working the garden, messages detailing your progress will appear on screen. To interact with the garden's overall progress + find helpful tips, access the "farming note" located nearby the farm plots. Through patience, hard work, and determination, you can progress as a farmer, and eventually grow more crops both outside and inside of the home.

Outdoor Herb bath & Indoor Pool/Spa

Let the combination of warmth and herbs heal your body and fend off that frigid Skyrim weather. Provides a temporary bonus to both frost resistance and speech. Use one of the “auto un-equip baskets” before entering the bath to quickly remove armor and other gear. Works great on followers as well! The spa and pool will also heal your aching muscles (lambago) after a hard day of farming in the garden.

*New! Wood Burning Fireplace (lifting/dropping animation)


The player must now use firewood in order to light the fireplace. The work table gives you the option to have a wood-chopping block out on the front porch, or you can use the one at the nearby mill. Chop some wood (at least 4 pieces) and then
take and place it into the stockpile located in the basement (or use auto-sort). Next pick up the wood from the stockpile & carry it over to the fireplace. After lighting the fire your player will be able to cook food & eat at the dining table. There are options to adjust the burning times in the settings book.


A Combination of Auto/Manual Storage

The player now can choose how best to store their collected items. Choose either the linked auto storage system, which connects & allows quick access for storing items in the main storage containers throughout the home, or players may store and retrieve items using the containers directly (vanilla system).

*New! Customizable rooms

Choose to furnish a few of Leaf Rest's rooms based on your playing style. There's a choice for a followers room, a children's room, or a collection room.To access this feature find the settings book located in the main bedroom.

Certain barriers can also be activated or deactivated to either open up the space within a room, or make it feel more separated.

Customizable Interior/Exterior Décor

The player has the ability IN GAME to change some of the home's decorations. Choose from a variety of symbols, statues, rugs, bed covers, shelf decor, and more to customize the look of Leaf Rest. Some of the room decorations can be changed or even disabled to make more room for your inventory items instead.

Interactive Dining tables (dining animation)

Simply take a seat at the dining table and prepare to have a home cooked meal. Your companion will eat at the table with you. Eating here will also provide a temp. bonus to one's strength. Eat, drink, be merry, & take some food with you for later if you wish. The table will clear automatically when you have finished.

A Full custom forge and smelter



Activate the forge fire to begin using the Leaf Rest forge & smelter. Nearby containers provide easy access for storing & retrieving various crafting materials. Access the forge settings book to find more features.

Leaf Rest Water
(drinking animation)


After drinking it the player receives a temporary bonus to stamina. It is also useful for growing crops in the  garden.

*New! Outdoor Work Table


The work table allows the player to activate or deactivate many of the outdoor decorations and landscaping features. This includes flower pots, leaf blinds, horse stables, chopping block, banners, farming area, clutter, etc...If you are experiencing good overall performance it's recommended to activate all decorations; otherwise use this feature to improve the overall outdoor performance or to customize the look of the home's exterior.

*New! Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions Compatibility

This feature allows for adopted children to come & live inside of the house. Use of this feature requires the Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions mod to be installed. In order to successfully bless the home you must also first have the children's beds activated via the Leaf Rest settings book.

*New! Business Ledger trading System


Merchants from around Skyrim will now send letters to the Dragonborn via the mail post asking him/her to engage in trading opportunities. Deposit gold in the bank to attract the merchants attention. Once a letter from a merchant is received, the Dragonborn will be able trade items with that merchant from the comfort of home. To interact with this system use one of the business ledgers located in the office area or the forge room. 

*New! Quick Access Bookshelves

After placing books on the shelves, which are located above the office desk (see pic below), you will have quick access to your reading material. The bookshelf inventory will pop up whenever you sit down and relax in one of the designated reading chairs located in and around the home.

Interactive lighting/Active Windows


Ability to toggle on / off some of the light sources. This includes the oven fire, forge fire, and the smelter fire as well. Active windows, when opened, allow the sunshine into the house between 6am-7pm, and moonlight during the evening between 7pm-6am.

Weapons and armor display areas/rooms

Includes collection chests & several displays to show off the various weapons and armor collected during your adventures. There is an option to have another collection area next to the main bedroom via the settings book.

Custom Enchanter and Alchemy Table (magic animation)

The custom enchanting altar will begin to glow with fire, ice, or lightning when the player approaches. Includes nearby containers for storing soul gems. Choose between two types of alchemy tables and enchanting tables in the settings book (Custom or Vanilla).

Alchemy & Enchanting books (reading animation)

Near each crafting station is a book that will temporarily fortify the player's abilities to create stronger potions (+30) and enchanted items (+30).

Pray to Nine Divines (praying animation)


Choose one of the Nine Divines and proceed to pray at the altar. Their blessings will be bestowed upon you. There is a choice between having the praying tree(s) or altar statues via the settings book.

Moy (the Pet fox)

Moy can usually be found near the hen house by the lower entrance. “Activate” your pet fox and take him for a walk, he will follow you around. “Activate” him again to tell him to stay or to return home. The home also comes with a pet chicken and a pet rabbit, along with a stable to house your horses.

Settings Book

Adjust many of the functions in the house. These include: Toggling on/off the animations, changing the room decorations, activating/deactivating the mannequins, customizing doorways, setting room barriers, choosing style of crafting tables, fire burning times, and more.


Etc...


Discovery and the thrill of the unknown is partly what makes Skyrim such a great game. With that in mind, there are many other items in Leaf Rest that the player can interact with, so look around and
explore
!


Riverwood Flowering is a separate mod that extends the look of Leaf Rest throughout the rest of town. Arranges flowers, plants, ropes, and other decorations all around Riverwood! (Leaf Rest not required)

Installation instructions...

If you are about to install the mod for the first time, just use the NMM button. Otherwise, if you plan to install the mod manually, simply place the files like normal into your Skyrim data folder.

Updating tips...

When updating Leaf Rest, always remember to recover all of your belongings, and to remove all NPC's(companions) from inside of the house. Don't forget to check the shield & weapon racks, display cases, mannequins, bookshelves, and outdoor storage containers. Then save in a different location (away from Riverwood), delete the previous version, make a fresh save, and install the new version. It’s always a good idea to make a new save in case you want to reinstall a previous version. Enjoy your new home!
