About this mod

A simple expansion of the town of Raven Rock.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Changelogs
This mod is my attempt to improve the town of Raven Rock, with the emphasis being on utility over aesthetics (which isn't to say that I don't try to make it look good, just that I focus on adding things which serve a purpose).



Features

  • A new wall on the south-west edge of town
  • A stockade around the northern entrance and cliffs
  • Guards patrol both new walls.
  • Adril & Cindiri Arano now have their own manor house.
  • After the mine is reopened, two ruined buildings will be repaired.
    • In related news, the miners now have homes and don't work 24/7. They will visit the Retching Netch in the evening and sleep in the repaired buildings.
  • Ienth Farm now has a larger ash yam field. It's supposed to be the town's only reliable source of food.
  • Removed some of the cobwebs in the Retching Netch. It didn't make sense for it to look abandoned even though it fills up every night.
  • Cleaned with TES5Edit


Optional File: Retching Netch Extra Seating

I've noticed that, with more NPCs visiting the Retching Netch, there aren't always enough seats. To address this, I've made an optional plugin which adds a table, four chairs, and some extra idlemarkers to the Retching Netch. I suggest using either this plugin OR your tavern overhaul of choice alongside the main file (I've left it separate so you have that choice).



Installation

I recommend using a mod manager, such as Mod Organizer or Nexus Mod Manager. If you want to install manually, just extract the contents of the archive into your Skyrim data folder. This mod is safe to install mid-playthrough; just make sure you save somewhere away from Raven Rock before loading it up for the first time.

I recommend using DynDOLOD to ensure that all structures display properly when viewed from far away.



Compatibility

This mod will generally be incompatible with mods that edit the south-western area of the town (between the Abandoned Building and the Earth Stone), the field behind Ienth Farm, or the area immediately north of the town.

Immersive Patrols, which adds Redoran Guard squads patroling north and east of the town, is fully compatible and works quite well with the new northern stockade.
