About this mod

A very large tent that the fearless adventurer can pack up and take with them.

Permissions and credits

There is now a smaller tent, usable with or without this one, for those of you who think the SAT is just too big for them: PopYurt Instant Hunter's Tent, that uses the same mechanics as this tent, but is much smaller and much more minimalistic. It REQUIRES that the General Stores mod be installed in order to use it.


This mod adds a very large tent to the game which the fearless adventurer can pack up and take with them. It has been designed for ease of upgrade without loosing your gear and booty going forward.


- SAT V1.9 REQUIRES Skyrim Version 1.6 or above!!
- IMPORTANT!! As of version 1.9.2, SAT REQUIRES Skyrim Script Extender, to enable the entry and exit to obey the same Save-On-Travel rules as every other load door in Skyrim!!


- Lots of safe storage.
- Weapon racks.
- Shield mounts.Mannequins.
- Map marker.
- Full crafting facilities.
- A master bedroom with lots of bookcases and wardrobes.
- Lots of room for your own clutter.
- Switchable lighting.
- Companion 'dormitory' area.
- Fully NavMeshed for companions, with lots of idle markers to keep them occupied.
- Curative and healing showers.
- IMPS water source.
- Usable anywhere, indoors or out, including the Blackreach.
- Practice dummy and archery target.

Upgrade Log:

Please see the Changes tab, above.


Before Updating:

1. In the console (player character outside tent, no followers in it, tent packed up),
type the following 3 commands, hitting enter after each one :

stopquest ADVTentQuest
stopquest ADVNPCMoverQuest
stopquest ADVMessageControllerQuest

(if you are currently running version 1.8, you'll have a stoptent.txt in the data folder which you
can invoke from the console by typing the following: bat stoptent and pressing Enter)

2. Close the console, save and exit the game.


3. Without disabling Skyrim Adventurer's Tent.esm or ADV HB-Style.esp, upgrade using Nexus
Mod Manager, or copy the entire contents of the .7z archive to your Skyrim\Data folder, choosing to
overwrite when prompted.

After Updating:

4. Start the game, load your last save, and open the console.
6. Type the following command and hit enter:

    bat starttent

    You should see three startquest commands corresponding to the stopquests you typed above.

7. Close the console and play the game.

New Installation:

Nexus Mod Manager Or ModOrganizer:

Download, activate and play!


Extract the .zip file into your Skyrim folder. it will install 5 files; Skyrim Adventurer's Tent.esm, Skyrim Adventurer's Tent.bsa and ADV HB-Style.esp, stoptent.txt and startent.txt, and will not clutter up your data folder with loose files.


The tent is summoned with the Summon Tent spell, which is automatically added when you activate the mod and start the game. Find the spell under conjuration. You can set up the tent anyplace within a 250 foot radius of where you're standing; just point your crosshair and cast the spell. It is recommended that you try to find a reasonably level piece of ground to set up on, or you may not be able to get through the opening.

Once the tent appears, just walk into it; your current follower(s) will follow you into the tent, provided they are not 'waiting'. Your map will be updated to show a map marker that you can use to travel back to the tent if you leave it set up and go walkabout.

To exit the tent, just walk into the door.

To pack up the tent, just cast the spell again.

Recommended for use with the tent:

- General Stores - storage resource for packrats, by Harvey2112

This is a brilliant mod which, if you use the optional ADV GenStoresPlugin, will provide  you with access to storage accessible from any home you may have which has enabled General Stores functionality. Besides being very attractive and well-thought-out, this mod provides you with another layer of safety for your loot if you should for whatever reason feel you need to reinstall the Skyrim Adventurer's Tent. I recommend this mod most enthusiastically.  Get it here: READ Harvey's page carefully so you understand what it is he's providing you. Grab a copy of the ADV GenStoresPlugin from here, and please don't forget to return and ENDORSE Harvey2112's excellent work!

- Unlimited Bookshelves by da5id2701

Some seriously cool work that allows you to put other items besides books on your shelves, and affects all the vanilla bookcases in the game. Items are put on the shelves by width, so you can often put more books on a shelf than is allowed by the vanilla scripts. BE SURE YOU READ da5id2701'S RELEASE NOTES! Get it here:

- Vanilla Mannequin Script Fix by SLuckyD

As of version 1.9.2, this should no longer be necessary, but I still recommend using it.

This works great to minimize the horrible flying mannequin behavior; SLuckyD did a great job with this. Get it here:

- Amazing Follower Tweaks

    This is what I'm using for multiple followers in-game, and it works very well, indeed.


Many thanks to Dark0ne for his commitment and work building the fine sites and community that are the Nexus, BethSoft for yet another epic game, and to the authors of TES5Edit, without which I'd have had to start from scratch more times than I can count.

Special Thanks to Kainalu for his excellent assistance with beta testing prior to each release, etholas for his much-needed help testing the upgrade procedure to ensure a smooth upgrade experience for the rest of the users, and lastly to Bond123 for being the inspiration for this tent.
