Background

Hey there, my name is Habalak, the new owner of RE-Real Estate.
I know M3t4lxxx still has the mod up on his page so here's a little backstory.

After Recieving permission from M3t4lxxx.

"Hey, sorry for the late reply, but I don't use much this site nowadays.
 I'm glad you're enjoying my mod and yes, you can use my mod as you want. Good luck with the development of your mod. 
~M3t4lxxx"

I've decided to upload the files he gave me under my own name in order to better facilitate communication between users of this mod and myself in the near and distant future. Let's make this mod even better!


DESCRIPTION

This mod offers both simplicity, for casual gamers, and a high level of customization, for pros. How is that done? Simple...
  • Outside of most buildings, you'll find a Property Sign. Interact with it to buy, sell and rent properties, from which you'll earn income.
  • Use a Master Ledger to review your current status. You need also to keep it up to date, to do so you just need to select the "Ledger's quill" from your inventory.
  • Collect your income from Safes located in each jarl's palace. The safes are locked, so that no thieves will steal your rent. The key is automatically given to the player during the tutorial.
  • You can easily adjust *any* setting using the MCM.


But owning a property is not only about earning money: you can also choose how much your tenants will have to pay you, and this will change the way they behave towards you:
  • If you allow them to pay less than usual, they will offer you better prices (if they are merchants) and they'll be friendlier.
  • If you charge them too much, they'll offer higher prices and they'll dislike you, but you'll earn more money.


Different types of properties give you also different advantages:
  • If you own a Shop, you will receive discounts on the wares sold.
  • If you own a Mine, you will receive ores extracted by your miners.
  • If you own a Farm, you can have delivered a part of the food produced by it.



________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROPERTIES
Properties are divided into several categories, each with its own pros and cons:
  • Houses: cheapest but low income.
  • Shops: expensive but high income.
  • Inns: more expensive than shops but higher income.
  • Farms: Increase income from inns or receive food.
  • Mines: Provides you with ores, you can use them for smithing or you can sell them for coins.
  • Special Properties: no income, but slightly raise overall income, and (in future versions) give you other advantages.


In order to buy a property you need also a perk (you can disable these requirements if you don't like them):
  • Haggling (the first level) for Houses;
  • Merchant for Shops;
  • Investor for Inns;
  • Master Trader for Special Properties.
  • All the other properties don't need any perk to be bought.

REQUIREMENTS
This mod requires both SKSE and SkyUI to work properly. If you don't have any of them, what are you waiting for? They are both amazing and really useful, and are requirements for many other great mods out there... so... go get them!

As Skyrim and mods don't go well together on a good day, I highly recommend you look up how to use TES5Edit to clean your files and make a merged patch for your mods along with using Wrye Bash to create a leveled list patch for your game... if you haven't done these things and you post a bug in the comment section I will not answer you.  Using a Merged Patch from TES5Edit and Wrye Bash is a requirement for using this and any other mods I work on.  It's not that hard to do... so stop making excuses and learn something.

HOW TO INSTALL/UPDATE
How do I install the mod?
You may have noticed that starting from v3.0 there are two files instead of one. What do they do?
  • RE_RealEstate_Core stores your data, keeping track of which properties you own and of your settings;
  • RE_RealEstate is basically everything else: it handles the MCM, signs, discounts, income, etc...

To install the mod simply download both files and put them in your Skyrim folder.

How do I upgrade the mod?

  • Short answer: Don't... it's a mess trying to upgrade from version any version without the 2 files)
  • Long Answer: (You sure you want to do this?) 
  •  If you're updating from a version < 3.0 it's pretty tricky: v3.0 isn't compatible with previous versions, because of the way ownership is saved (items instead of local variables), so if you update the mod now, you will lose all your owned properties.
    • If that isn't a problem remember to uninstall the previous version (go to MCM > Real Estate > Uninstall): in this way you'll safely stop all the scripts running.
    • If instead you don't want to lose them, just wait until I'll release a workaround for transferring ownership from versions < 3.0.

  • If, instead, you're updating from a version >= 3.0 you just need to replace the old files with the new ones.



How do clean saves work?
Simple: disable RE_RealEstate, but NOT RE_RealEstate_Core, load the game, save, exit, re-enable RE_RealEstate and continue playing! You made a clean save and you didn't lose your data!

F.A.Q.
Q. Will this mod or any other Real Estate Continued versions get ported to Consoles in the future?
A. Nope, nope and nope... it's not possible to port this mod over to consoles when the backbone of the mod (A little Third party Program called SKSE) isn't able to be installed on a console. 

Q. Will you be making a version of this mod that can work on consoles?"
A. Not a chance.

Q. Why not?
A. Because I don't have the time, the energy or the interest to do so... 

Q. Could I get some people to do it then?
A. With permission from me you're more than welcome to make a console compatible version of any of my mods... just credit me and don't take donations for them... other than that, go for it. 

Q. My game keeps crashing when I start it! What do I do?
A. Have you downloaded and installed both files (RE and RE_Core)? Are both files active?
If you installed the mod using NMM, when asked to upgrade, select "No".

Q. Is this compatible with mods that change perks, such as OrdinatorSkyREACE, etc.?
A. Yes and No, mods like SkyRE and ACE just edit vanilla perks, so there won't be any problem. Unfortunately mods like Ordinator remove vanilla perks and replace them with custom ones, however, you can simply turn off the perk requirements from the MCM so it shouldn't be a problem.

Q. When I interact with property signs there's no options for buying. What do I do?
A. You need to progress in the tutorial (the quest "Becoming a Landlord").

Q. I can't complete the quest called "Becoming a Landlord". Is it a bug?
A. No, the quest is not meant to be completed (i.e. removed from the Active Quests) because that would break the mod (specifically the ledger would stop working). The last stage you can reach is when you are told to "create your own real estate", you can think of that as the end of the quest
.

Q. Will RE-Real Estate get uploaded to Skyrim Special Edition? If so when?
A. Yes RE-Real Estate is too good of a mod to leave behind... When SKSE64 and Special Edition SkyUI get released I'll start porting it to the Special Edition... But as far as long that will take is really out of my hands. 

Q. You Mentioned working on a project called Wars Stores and Smuggling Scores... When can we expect it to arrive?
A. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! It'll be some time after I get RE-Real Estate and all the other mods that will go into the Project up and running on Special Edition so better sit back with a bowl of popcorn cause that train hasn't even left the station yet.
