Just wanted to let you I know the mod is broken that is why I had to abandon the project and made the mod Castle Draco Riverwood edition. I have left this up in hopes someone would help as all my requests for help on the forums have gone unanswered. I am at this time unsure on how to fix the lag, fix the crashes, and since the last patch now I have issues with heads. I just don't know what to do. Every patch something else breaks in this mod ever since 1.7 update. I thank all who supported me and am sorry the mod never saw it potential. I started modding in oblivion and still new to it but, I wanted to share this mod with the community.

IMPORTANT please when updating from an old version (0.512 or Higher should be safe). or switching versions. Remove Your items or they may be lost. Will say it again I have done alot of work to form id's and cleansing so remove items or they maybe lost.

NOTICE: Can't move forward with the project until I get some feedback. Please drop some comments let me know if you are having issues. I am having issues need to see if it is my system or the mod. So Far I have found the cells that are causing the errors. Well I wanted to give a new update I loaded a previous backup from tesedit and looks like it is crash free so project may continue will have to finish with the nav meshes and exterior before it is ready for a an update,

NEW 0.69 Alpha test update maybe broken. Added new companion hunter, worked on nav meshes, and lighting. Went in to test mod and started to crash when I explore the castle let me know if you have same problem. Had just finished cleaning it and validating forms.

NEW 0.68 Made some head way with the issues in the mod releasing most stable so far. Only been doing bug fixes and cleaning to mod. But I did have to rename some form ids so treat as a new mod.

New 0.67 Must be treated as new mod will be posting as new mod in the up coming weeks after I do some testing. Renamed form id to fix 1.8 errors, removed problem scripts since 1.8, Manually removed papyrus errors in logs. Should be stable and crash free now let me know if not. Doing some testing of my own in the following weeks. Plan to make new release new post once quest are added with help from jerros.

Added Optional File for sorting room but I had problems with it,
Note make sure load order is right and sorting is loaded after main plugin.

At this point I am leaving the imperial outpost up as safe to use version and will be focusing on the Lost paladin version and updating it. There will no new update to the imperial version until project is almost done so you can safely used it until then.

Rated Number one thank you Machinima.

Been awhile, to be honest I lost interest but with new vote by Machinima. I have decided to start work on project again. It will be a few weeks for a update as I need to try and address the esm over esp problem as esm appear to not let you add quests. Using tesedit I have cleaned my esp file and believe that has fixed mod conflict errors. I am going to release a beta test of the esp let me know if you have any problems. However I cant add quest to esm file so I need the esp to work to continue the project. Thank you all for your support.

The end goal of this project is to add a Imperial outpost to the border of skyrim and cyrodill with a player home castle with everything a player could need. It will be like border patrol outpost. Plan is to finish layout and interior cells, move on to decor, then to nav mesh, npc's with voice, and over quests . Lastly due to request by player I am releasing 3 versions of this mod. First is the Imperial out post, second is the stormcloak version, and lastly due to help from Jerros and permission from ActusReus Castle Draco Lost plaadins version. I will complete one version and from that add the others.

Posted some New Pictures. Send me message with ideas of things you would like to see.

I am also looking for resources for this..

Would like to see statues from oblivion mainly the dragon and some good royal looking furniture let me know if you guys see any mods like that.

Also, I would like to hear from you guys if you are having any problems with mod. Since I started a new save I have had no issues. Want to make sure you all are ok to.

This post will be WIP of this mod will post other versions separately . I will try to keep the esp up to update from here on out.

KNOWN ISSUES: // Troubleshooting

Since hearthfire if you go to load a save from the castle it may not load or crash. To resolve this until bethesta fixes this load a save away from the castle and then load the save that didn't load the first time. (Without exiting the game)

Objects use to not always render. It appears bethesda has fixed that issue but if a wall or something is missing just fast travel away and back.

The Sorting room is a WIP it works but I have plans to add in other areas of the castle this maybe a long time away without some help, Just be aware. (Sjogg made it I just merged it in game)

MODS you will see in the pictures but are not in this mod.

Sexy winterhold retexture
Serious HD Retexture Skyrim
SKYRIM ENHANCED SHADERS FX - ENB by Tapioks his night sky didn't install the rest I hate darker nights.
I have Lots of re-texture so you may see some others but to many to post them all. They are all on the nexus tho. Steam is more of a annoyance then a tool reasons (poor search engine, many errors, can't post esm's, have to use that horrible cloud, all around poor planning and design).
My other mods
And many mods I have over 239 mods running but I think I almost have my skyrim perfect lol.

Also,Dova Hideout Rugs and Banners - New Exotic Furs by mgbeach and trixterpriest has given permission to rugs from his mod maybe adding them in an up and coming update. Until then I do recommend using his retexture.
