A simple village expansion for Whistling Mine.
It always seemed odd to me that an established mine with an active smelter had no place for the people there to live. Whistling Mine is cold, and inhospitable. Nobody in their right mind would actually sleep there! This mod solves that oddity by providing a small village for the 4 NPCs to live in and spend some time in. Cause who wants to spend their lives living in the mine they work in!
It was also somewhat strange that Winterhold Hold had nothing but a single half ruined town in it.
Official Skyrim patch 22.214.171.124.8 or greater.
DO NOT extract the contents of the BSA file into your Data folder as loose files, or let your mod manager peform an equivalent function on the contents of the file. Doing so will cause things to load in the wrong order and break the game. Skyrim is intended to load a BSA alongside it's ESM/ESP file. Circumventing this causes issues which I will not provide support for. If you insist on going against this advice, you will receive no support for the problems you generate as a result of this.
Installation - Wrye Bash BAIN
Drop the archive into your Skyrim Mods\Bash Installers folder, then install as usual.
Make sure the mod is active in the Wrye Bash mods tab.
Installation - Steam Workshop
Subscribe to the mod via the Workshop page, then use the Skyrim launcher to allow it to download and install.
Make sure it's active in the Data Files menu.
Installation - Nexus Mod Manager
Use the "Download with Manager" button on the page at Skyrim Nexus. The installer should take care of things from there.
Then simply make sure NMM has the mod activated.
Installation - Manual
Drop the Whistling Mine.esp and Whistling Mine.bsa files into your Data folder.
Activate the mod using whatever management tool suits you.
Due to the nature of Skyrim mods, especially those adding scripts, it is strongly discouraged to attempt uninstalling a mod from your active game. Any mod that is more than pure mesh or texture replacements has the possibility to leave behind permanent changes to your save that you may not want. This is not something modders can correct for. It is how the game was designed by Bethesda. No support will be provided for anyone who uninstalls this mod from an active game and continues on with that save.
To remove the mod: Delete the Whistling Mine.esp and Whistling Mine.bsa from your Data folder. Then reload your game as usual.
LOOT should be used for optimal placement.
This mod must also load AFTER Immersive Citizens - AI Overhaul. Changes made to the NPC references will be lost otherwise and they will not behave properly.
Fully compatible with Bring Out Your Dead.
Will not be compatible with other mods that change the Whistling Mine exteriors.
Mods altering Angvild, Badnir, Gunding, or Thorgar will not be compatible.
