~The First and The Original... NOW IMPROVED!~

Grimy after days of adventuring and fighting? Need to recharge and relax on a clear and sunny Sundas? If you own Lakeview Manor, then this mod will add a luxurious pool and hot bath, and a great view of Lake Iinalta, minus the hassle of going down the lake for a swim!

IMPORTANT: READ INSTRUCTIONS CLOSELY -- BEST USED AFTER COMPLETING THE HOUSE



Backstory:
The idea came while working on my first mod, as my previous character owned Lakeview. With the lakewaters beckoning, she loves to swim, but it's rather an unpleasant cautious walk down to the shore, and then having to be careful of some incoming nasties who could turn things ugly while in the water.

The other idea for this mod, well... After I've seen that many mods have been made for Breezehome, about a couple dozen for Hjerim, Vlindrel Hall, a few for Honeyside and Proudspire, I focused at the new Heartfire homes (having tried them all, but Lakeview Manor became my favorite of the three). So what I did was to fill out a need, something that was really missing and truly rewarding despite the obvious opulence and size of the estate, and here it is now. :)

BTW, it's hairy work to do when there's several massive static objects (rocks and mountains) right beneath, and I have to be damn careful while being around it (hence I have to make manual backups before saving, as CK doesn't have much in the way of practical reverts, emergency backups and a proper Undo system -- but it's tedious to reload CK when there's a major editing screwup).

Mod includes the following:

  • Heated pool and bathtub with autostrip and reequip only for followers and other NPCs
  • Idle markers for NPCs
  • Outdoor kitchen and dining area
  • Garden with 30 plantable plots
  • Alchemy and enchanting tables
  • Proper ambient lighting
  • Boat shack (formerly a necromancer's altar)
  • Perimeter lighting
  • Some shade trees after clearing off trees that are too large
  • Proper patrol paths
  • Frostfall compatible
  • Checked and cleaned with TES5edit and tested
