IMPORTANT: READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY -- BEST USED AFTER COMPLETING THE HOUSE.
Requires the Hearthfire DLC and Skyrim Update 1.9.

What is it?
This mod aims to provide Windstad owners a no-cost, add-on swimming pool and hot bath, somewhat missing when you're a successful warrior or mage who have just built a very large estate.


Video review by lollerkemper -- Thanks!

Features:
* Follower-friendly -- with an included navmesh, it means followers can go anywhere around the pool.
* Self-Contained -- except for the navmesh, which has been improved on, and I had to tweak the terrain to build the pool's foundation, the mod is highly separate and does not mess up with Windstad's programming.
* Heated Tub and Braziers -- perfect for those who have Frostfall.

Compatibility:
* This mod requires the Hearthfire DLC installed.
* Some Hearthfire mods that alter Windstad may or may not be compatible with this mod.
* This mod may be compatible with HearthFire - Windstad Manor - Fortified and Upgradable, if you wish not to purchase the perimeter wall. According to brentmontana: "Actually it plays nice with Windstad fortified as long as you don't build the surrounding wall (for me, anyway.)"
* Not compatible with Fort Windstad
* Not compatible with Port of Windstad
* This mod is compatible with vanilla or Tropical Skyrim.
* This mod is compatible with Windstad Manor Lights.
* This mod is compatible with Windstad Manor (Perimeter Fence)

For any issues, please leave a message (if it's a glitch, describe it in full) at the comments section or PM me; I'll try to resolve them as much as possible. Also, as this is a beta release (hence the "b" besides the version number) and thus a WIP, meaning to say I'm still conducting compatibility testing and debugging, there will be some possible imperfections or odd bugs, especially in combination with other mods. Anything you see missing or something that doesn't look right, just leave a detailed comment (if English isn't your native language, use Google Translate before posting your comment). Thank you.

Installation:
* Nexus Mod Manager: After downloading, find the mod and activate it to install.
* Manual: open the 7zip folder, pick which mod to use, then drag and drop the .ESP file into Skyrim's Data folder.

Uninstallation:
1.) Hard save while inside an interior cell, then exit.
2.) You can then deactivate and uninstall from NMM, or manually delete the mod (the filename is HF_Windstad_Pool_and_Hotbath.esp).

Upgrade (if it happens):
1.) Almost the same as uninstallation, but overwrite the .ESP file. Hard save while inside an interior cell, then exit.
2a.) In NMM, activate the new version and it'll ask you to overwrite; select Yes.
2b.) For manual upgrading, open the 7zip file, click and drag over the .esp files to the data folder and overwrite the old .esp.

Further Plans:
I think I have some ideas about making the most out of the Nord stone terrace base below the pool... Since it's real cold out there. :)
