NEWS & UPDATES



July 30th, 2017
Version 3.0.0 Released:
I didn't want everyone to wait long after Scarla handed over the reigns for an update so here it is! I've included Dragon Bridge and Helarchen Creek and updated the merged patches to keep the plugin count low. I've removed Wyrmstooth from the overall patch, as well. Finally, I've included a Wizard for Wrye Bash users. The mod has been officially reset to the version scheme I mentioned in the update below. Even if you don't use the new locations added, I would still recommend for user to update since the overall mod has seen some changes and updates. For the gritty details, see the changlelog.

If you find any issue with the mod, please utilize the Bugs tab above and give as complete a description as possible to the issue you're experiencing.

General Update:
Hello everyone, TechAngel85 here! As some of you may know, I maintain the Skyrim Special Edition (Skyrim SE) version of Farmhouse Chimneys. I'm glad to announce that Scarla has given me the reigns for maintaining the mod, overall. What does this mean? This means I'll be updating this classic Skyrim version of the mod to the same level as the Skyrim SE version! For those of you that don't know, I expanded the Skyrim SE version to include extra locations and updated the merged patches to keep the plugin count low. I'll be doing the same for this classic Skyrim version of the mod. For those of you that don't know me. I introduce myself in the Posts section so you can meet and greet there.

Since I manage several mods for authors, I've developed a managing style to keep myself organized while doing so. The first of my changes to any mod is to regular the version scheme. I use the same scheme across all mods I manage:
Major.Minor.Hotfix
  • Major = changes to assets such as new or updated meshes, scripts (if applicable), textures, etc.
  • Minor = compatibility updates, patch updates, larger bug fix rollouts, etc.
  • Hotfix = hot-fixes, single bug fixes, update to installer code, etc.

If you find any issue with the mod, please utilize the Bugs tab above and give as complete a description as possible to the issue you're experiencing.



COMPATIBILITY



The chimneys should work with any mod that doesn't move the farmhouses. Mods that add new farmhouses will need a patch to add the chimneys, but are otherwise compatible.
  • JK's Skyrim does not add or move houses, so it should be compatible as-is. There may be some clipping in places due to the large number of new objects added by that mod. Let me know if you see anything really funky.
  • Expanded Towns and Cities adds its own chimneys to some areas, so I've included a separate main file for that mod in the installer. Use it in place of the other main plugin.


Available Addons:
The following mods will have optional patches in the installer. They should be used in addition to the main plugin file.

New Lands

New Villages

Miscellaneous Mods

Arthmoor's Village Expansion Mods

Merged Plugins
There are now merged plugins available for each of the sections above. These merged plugins will save you several plugin slots.



INSTALLATION



The addons have been made with a LOOT sorted load order; therefore, allow LOOT to sort any installed plugins.

MO and NMM:
To install the mod, simply follow the directions in the included FOMOD installer. The installer will automatically select recommended options based on your active plugins. All merged plugins require you to have already installed the listed mods for their use before you are allowed to select them in the installer. The merged plugins were designed in such a way to prevent false bug reports.

Wrye Bash:
The mod is fully BAIN compliant . Either use the included Wizard or select the sub-package desired.

Merging Note:
Users should NOT merge other plugins into the main plugin (FarmhouseChimneys.esp) due to load order requirements for the various addons included. Users can merge the various addons into a single patch, though, as long as the main plugin isn't included in the merge.



CREDITS:
The original chimney meshes are from Building kits and other items by jet4571.
The thinner meshes and clay pot stacks were modified and created by SparrowPrince.
