What is Hidden Hideouts of Skyrim City Edition?

Hidden Hideouts of Skyrim City Edition is a mod designed to provide the player with immersive areas in each major city for rest, storage, and the occasional amenity. They are intended to be largely neglected or forgotten locations that a criminal, vagrant, or lone wolf might inhabit while visiting a hold capital. Each location had to meet certain criteria, such as being an area where an entrance both inside and outside the city was feasible as well as being accessible enough that it could be entered quickly. Also, the entrances had to be relatively inconspicuous to avoid unwanted attention.

How many hideouts are there?

There are 5 hideouts available, one each in Whiterun, Solitude, Markarth, Windhelm, and Riften. Hideouts are available as individual plugins (so that you may pick and choose which ones best suit your play style) or merged together into a single file. Pictures under the Images tab are labeled to show the outer city map marker, both entrance exteriors, and interior of each location.

All hideouts are fully NavMeshed so followers can join you inside each location.

Do they come in different flavors?

Yes! Hideouts, both merged and modular, come in three different versions: Standard, No Map Marker, and Deep Immersion.

*Standard version has at least three safe storage containers, a fire with a cooking pot, and a place to sleep. Other amenities such as tanning racks, grindstones, workbenches, or alchemy and enchanting tables, are only available if it made sense to the setting. You can view what amenities each hideout has under the ReadMe tab or during mod installation.

*No Map Marker version is simply the Standard version without the outer city map markers, thus preventing any fast travel to them and making them more challenging to find.

*Deep Immersion version is an interpretation of what the hideouts were like when your character first discovered them. There are no map markers, camping equipment and storage may or may not be present, and the hideouts may already be occupied by who knows what!

Is there any in-game help to find the hideouts?

Yes! The Merged Standard and No Map Marker files offer a journal belonging to an unfortunate thief on the outskirts of Riverwood to help guide you to all of the hideout's... approximate locations. This guide book is not available if you choose a Deep Immersion version or the Modular file. If you need assistance finding the journal, there is an aerial screenshot of the area under the Images tab.

What mods go best with these hideouts?

I HIGHLY recommend any of the following mods for a more solid appreciation of having a safe area in a place you may or may not be welcome. Skulking around in the freezing night, exhausted and hungry, having a massive bounty on your head, and running into a patrol of guards with nowhere to run is the last thing you want to happen!

If you are using a Deep Immersion hideout version, I further recommend any of the following mods to help you set up your hideout since some locations will not have basic camping equipment. Frostfall (listed above) offers a great selection of camping equipment as well.
