The latest Skyrim
Hearthfires
Dawnguard

And
Fuz Ro D-oh - Silent Voice by shadeMe
(
Highly recommended. Almost as important as necessary for some quest dialogues to go smoothly. )


Works best in New Games.


After installing, you first need to open up the console to type in "resetinterior SolitudeBluePalace"
especially when you are installing this mod on an existing save.









The architectural style and the very few lore tales of Blue Palace somehow always attracted me. As much as I disliked the way the Palace was portrayed in the Vanilla Skyrim I loved it so much, and after over 7months of sitting in front of my screen, I can present you Royal Blue Palace.










Beware that some rooms (like the Jarl's Chamber) aren't made to match the exterior.

Most of the newly-added rooms are private spaces, meaning trespassing there will make them very angry.
However, once you finished the quest "A Man Who Cried the Wolf" in which you're going to kill the necromancers in Wolfskull Cave, you will earn the court's trust and be granted to enter these rooms freely.













Affected NPCs by this mod are:
☆Elisif the Fair
☆Falk Firebeard
☆Sybille Stentor
・Bolgeir Bearcraw
・Bryling
・Erikur
・Odar
・Una
・Erdi
・Melaran
・Irnskar Ironhand
・Solitude Palace Guards


The NPCs marked “☆” have not had their NPC records changed. Therefore you may use any mods that alter the appearance of Elisif, for example, without need of a patch.

Sybille will be wearing a very special, gorgeous looking blue robe, with the texture from Lind's Court Wizard Robes Revamp.
This robe is her own and you cannot steal it, so if you want that robe for your character please go download Lind's original mod.




All of the newly-added interiors mentioned above will serve as their new workplaces/living quarters so everyone will be more lively, and busy.

Falk will visit Bryling’s house at midnight once a week and even goes out to the Bard’s College Festival, if you helped Viarmo restart it.

Sybille will not join the rest of the members of the Court when they travel to the Parlour to dine at 3:00pm.

The Housecarls for the Thanes will show up at the Court in its closing hour to pick their Thanes up.

Elisif will ask you to come over to her private quarters when she asks you to deliver Torygg’s War Horn for she doesn’t like to discuss the sensitive matter regarding with Talos worship in public.

And finally, every noble one who resides in the Palace will bathe in the bath halls. Sybille, Falk, and Bolgeir will use the large bath hall in the Stewards’ Living Quarters and Elisif will use her own bathroom. When they bathe, they will unequip their clothes and store them inside the baskets near the baths, which gives you the opportunity to steal their belongings if you fancy yourself a sneaky type.












The Palace is now full of things for the taking!
There are even unique treasures including 2 jeweled daggers and 1 jeweled greatsword kept somewhere.


If you sided with the Imperial Legion on the civil war quest line, General Tullius would give

the Jagged Crown to Elisif the Fair. But what has Elisif done with the bone crown?
Well, she made a decision to keep it safe from the hands of the rebels.

Where she's hidden it is a mystery...but the rumour is the last High-King Torygg had his own secret vault where he was keeping all of his treasure, and he was shearing this great secret with his beloved wife too.
If one should wish to acquire the crown, he'd first have to find this secret treasury room
somewhere in Blue Palace.

Jagged Crown will only appear somewhere in Blue Palace if you gave the Crown to Elisif through Tullius.



If you wish to know, where you'd find this treasury room is...

Spoiler










(Note)

・In Vanilla Skyrim, the Jagged Crown does not have a tempering recipe. So I've added one so you can temper the Crown at a work bench if you have the Steel Smithing Perk.









After finishing Sheogorath's quest "The Mind of Madness", you can go talk to either Elisif or Falk about what happened inside the Pelagius Wing and how it's became a "safe place" free from the daedric affection.

You must either convince Falk to restore the Wing taking a long conversation (almost a fight, actually...lol)
or you may just talk to Elisif who simply shows you a gratitude and grants you a permission to give them
your opinion about the restoring plans.
You can advice them to make a guest hall insude the Pelagius Wing, and after the 7 days of refurnishing is completed, the brand-new "Pelagius Hotel" will be opened!


Features & benefits of opening the Pelagius Hotel :


・A completely functional inn where you can stay at any time.
・For your efforts of recovering the Wing, you are granted to stay at the most expensive "Pelagius Suite" .
・A new beverage only served here at the Hotel!

There are up to 14 new guests NPCs and many of them are merchants, and most of them will actively go out to the city, to the Solitude dock area and to the Bards College Festival to make the city look more lively.



(Note)

If you ever had a problem with this quest, such as the dialogue options with Elisif or Falk not showing, or the Hotel not be opened after waiting for 7days, your solution would be to download the "BAT File - No Quest" from the optional files section.

Install this BAT file under your /Skyrim folder (NOT Data Folder!) and start the game,
open up the console command to type in

"bat pelagius".

This will immediately complete the refurnishing quest and make the Hotel available.


Also, in some occasions, you might be going to see the iron bars to seal the entrance to the Pelagius Wing, even after you've helped them rebuild it as the Pelagius Hotel.
This is a nasty bug; These bars are supposed to be disabled as you finish the renovation quest, "A Pair of Wings Restored".
If you happened to encounter this bug, acknowledged when you still see those bars and ropes around the entrance to the Pelagius Hotel, please type in the following command in your console:

"StartQuest Pelagius"

Typing in this line will resolve this issue by removing those bars.
You don't need the BAT file mentioned above to use this feature.








Some changes from Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch have been implemented. This aims to avoid any issue by overwriting crucial changes by USLP and to help those who don't play with the patch.

One major bug fix introduced by the patch around the Palace is to let Melaran replace Sybille's place
as the court wizard,when she died.


NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ANY MODS THAT ENABLE YOU TO KILL ELISIF OR MAKE ERIKUR THE JARL OF SOLITUDE!



Any mods that changes the interior design of Blue Palace including Pelagius Wing
or the NPCs in Blue Palace excluding Elisif, Falk and Sybille should not be compatible.



However, there are compatibility patches for the users with the following:

Enhanced Lights and FX
Realistic Lighting Overhaul
Shadows
↑The patches with them are stored in "The Lighting Overhaul Mods Patches" collection!↑

Please note: If you use TES5EDIT, I suggest you to delete the cell record "SolitudeBluePalace" from your lighting mod, instead of using this patch to consume your precious load order. Please remember that these patches are only alternative to those who don't like using TES5EDIT, or isn't skilled enough to do so.


Legacy of the Dragonborn (Dragonborn Gallery)
The Ordinary Women


Make sure to download the patches from the optional files section if you use these 2 mods!

Also, if you're using Ultimate NPC Overhaul by reindeer51 (It's currently hidden by the author)
you have a compatibility patch:
Ultimate NPC Overhaul Patches by SirJesto



There are some mods that add some new items for you to pick up in Blue Palace,
especially in Sybille Stentor's lab where the mod authors like to put their "vampiric" stuff around.
These mods should be alright to be used together. But some areas in the
Palace where used to be the kitchen, or Elisif's bedroom are inaccessible
as the result of the massive remodel, so any modded items that are added
in these rooms would be impossible to obtain with my mod installed.









The users with Interesting NPCs and Inconsequential NPCs have the main file of the mod with built-in compatibility so you don't need any extra patches to go with these awesome mods.

In the Interesting NPCs compatible version, Nythriel, a high-elf NPC who lives in Blue Palace, will have her own bedroom designed and dedicated for her.








Solitude Towers Flags by iLita adds flags on the top of the towers and the palace. Highly recommended.

Noblesses Oblige by jacknifelee has a file to replace the Jarl's dress and the fine clothes with the new, more beautifully decorated ones. You may use it with my my mod to dress up Elisif and Falk without any problems.

Lind's Court Wizard Robes - Blue Robes Texture Replacer by Lind001 is a retexture for the blue robes. The blue robe texture used for Sybille's unique robe is from this mod. I recommend you to check out every work Lind has released.



A city overhaul mod for Solitude is definitely a great addition, and I highly recommend you to use your favourite one.
Solitude is my favourite city in Skyrim and this Blue Palace mod is my approach to enhance its attractiveness.

As for the the retexture mods, you'd want to use the one for the Solitude city
and also the noble furniture to make the palace look beautiful.
Just so you know, Ultimate Solitude by grVulture is my favourite Solitude retexture mod by far.

I'm always happy to hear your feed backs and willing to answer your questions given some time as much as 1~5days. Please be constructive when posting your comments and it'd be sooner to be able to get back to you.
