About this mod

A cozy, nautical-themed home in Riften for the completely average, legal fisherman citizen. Not at all a disguised thief's home with a treasury underneath, or anything...

A Nautical-Themed Riften Player Home
            for the secret thief friendly local fisherman

- Summary -
+ "Fisherman's" House & Hidden Thief's Vault. Aesthetically, this home is a simple fisherman-themed house, with a plain but cozy, cluttered interior. There is a large Thief's Vault with numerous plaques, mannequins, displays and more hidden through a wardrobe in the bedroom.

- Requirements -

+ Skyrim (Legendary Edition/Hearthfire, Dawnguard, Dragonborn)
+ IF you want to adopt kids here, you'll need the Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions mod.

- Installation -
+ Drag the .esp and Scripts folder into your Skyrim/Data folder.

- Compatibility -

+ Compatible with any mod that doesn't change the exterior location.
+ Should be compatible with 3dNPCs, which adds another door/walkway nearby as well, but mine does not overlap.
+ Compatible with Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions. Download that mod in order to move your spouse & kids to this home. Use the Bless Home spell provided by that mod to set Silverside's Perch as your home.

- Location -
+ Riften, lower canals, just opposite the Ratway entrance (southeast corner of the city) - formerly Romlyn Dreth's house entrance; his door has been moved to right across the canal.

- Acquisition -

+ Pick the Master-level lock either at the main door, or at the trap door hidden outside the city, to enter. Remember to pick up the key just inside the front door.

- Features -

+ Home with room for four children (REQUIRES the Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions mod), spouse, 1 follower (followers can be set in here with ex. Your Home is My Home mod, but there is only 1 spare bed).

+ Most default crafting, with the exception of Spider/Staff crafters. Locations: Alchemy - living room nook; Cooking/Baking - living room fireplace; Enchanting - bedroom; Smithing (anvil), Smelting (forge), Workbench, Tanning Rack and Grindstone - treasury.

+ Bookshelves throughout the home, as well as bookcases for excess. Some unnamed chests for additional storage.

+ 14 weapons plaques, 4 weapon display cases, 1 dagger display case, 3 shield racks, 12 mannequins (11 in the vault, 1 in the bedroom), 2 weapons racks of 5 weapons apiece, 1 of 4.

+ Dragon mask and dragon claws displays, Paragon and Black Books displays, Thieves' Guild golden items displays (ex. the ship model, golden urn, etc).

+ A large, hidden Thief's Vault containing most of the aforementioned displays, the smithing crafting stations, custom weapon storage, armor storage, piles of gold/gems, chests, safes and more. Location: 1) Open wardrobe with false back in bedroom; 2) Open false back panel; 2) Pull candlehorn beside it to open the hidden door wall.

+ A recipe--available only at the anvil in Silverside's--to convert a single iron ingot into 10 lockpicks.

+ Hidden exit (ladder in vault) into the Rift outside the city walls, with fast travel and horse marker, for easy access without needing to travel through Riften.

+ Custom storage in the bedroom (at the writing desk) for scrolls, journals, and notes.

+ Several planters--some inside (around the alchemy nook) with a few more just outside the front door.

+ All storage containers DO NOT respawn and can be safely used for storage.

-Known Bugs-
+ One or two of the weapon plaques like to display some weapons upside-down, generally axes. Don't use axes on these. Nothing I can really do here.
+ Secret stone door clips into stairs a little. Cosmetic bug only.

Some tips for common bugs not specific to this home:
+ Protip 1: if your kids/spouse (requires Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions mod) don't sleep in their beds, try moving them to another house and then back. (Vanilla/Hearthfires bug)
+ Protip 2: if your mannequins ever wander off, access the base and change their inventory and they'll return to where they should be. Mine should not wander. (Vanilla bug)
+ Protip 3: if weapon plaques ever stop responding, sometimes picking an item up and physically rubbing it all over the rack fixes it. (Rare Vanilla bug)
+ Protip 4: if you start having bookshelf lag (in any home) where, when placing books onto a shelf, they lag/jitter/erase, try opening any menu (inventory/escape menu) after placing books. Wait a moment to allow the books to be placed while physics is 'paused,' and when exiting the menu, the books will be properly placed! (Hearthfires bug)
