     Welcome to Friendlier Taverns with Baths and Barns.

Thank you all for your awesome support!

See sticky for changelog.

Check out this nice video by DonProtein, thanks a bunch!

 Now works with Moonpath to Elsweyr and Ravenrock Expanded, no patched file necessary! check change log for complete list of changes and fixes. Fully adapted to Skyrim Special Edition!

I do not plan to update a patched version for Old Hrolden compatibility, sorry.

This is a new release of my old mod Friendlier Taverns with bathing rooms added to each Tavern.
Each Tavern in Skyrim has been individually remodeled to make the sitting arrangements more welcoming and diverse in furnishings. No more cookie cutter look no matter what Tavern you walk into. A number of custom models have been added to serve as safe containers and or decorations. Most taverns now have bread ovens.
In this version now every Tavern in Skyrim also has a walk in bathing room, fully navmeshed so followers can go in with you. The bathing rooms are attached at floor level at the country side Inns as round silo towers, and so are also circular on the inside. These feature circular wooden tubs and followers will use them though not easily come out of them, but always follow behind you when you leave the bathing room.

The bathing rooms in major cities are more individualized and made in the style of that city with the one in Markarth probably being the most elaborate with a pool in the Dwemer style.
Every bathing room is a bit different just as the Taverns are individualized  and will have between 1 to 3 tubs and slightly different features like fire places, spouts etc.
I think the doors will be pretty obvious, but they are placed mostly in the right far corner in all country Inns, behind the bar and next to the large room.
Some hints for the Cities:
Markarth Silverblood Inn door is to the right of the fire place; Solitude The Winking Skeever in the open basement no loading door; Riften basement at the foot of the stairs; Whiterun main hall to the left of the bar; Windhelm Candlehearth hall, at the foot of the back stairs; Retching Netch Ravenrock on Solstheim hallway opposite the bar. Cities that have the same house type for an Inn as small villages also have the Silo type round tower attached to them, such as Falkreath, Morthal and Winterhold; Dawnstar has a square hut design attached to the Frozen Hearth. 

The New Gnisis Corner Club in Windhelm got a more extensive overhaul with dimmer lighting and Dunmer style lanterns. It features also maps of the old homeland and food and beverages you can otherwise only get on Solstheim. It has a full basement now that features a bathing tub a mushroom farm and a secret tunnel through a well that will lead you outside the city walls. You can also enter the city that way and it is fully navmeshed.
It now feels more like a true Dunmer enclave.

There is one abandoned Inn at Fort Dunstad and it also has a bath in the basement, so clear out those bandits for a dip. The Workers house at Mixwater Mill has now a working fireplace and cooking station and one custom container. Just meant as a stop over shelter. 

Three locations have now a large barn and stable near the local Inn; Winterhold, Dawnstar and Ivarstead. They are all a bit different in style and layout and you can find some random loot in them and also sleep in the hayloft. The reason I did not cover other Towns is for logistical reasons as placing a large barn conflicted with too many mods in other locations. These three will work with most city enhancing mods for these locations.
See my comment about "Immersive Stables" in my recommended mod section below.

This mod requires both the Hearthfires and Dragonborn DLCs! My apologies I made that not more obvious, luckily most of you figured that out by the looks of it.

Please note that some mods in the list below may depend on SKSE and cannot work until it is ready for SSE, or are not available yet for SSE!

This mod should be compatible with any mod that does not change the interior layout of any Tavern, including Navmesh! Exterior changes are minimal and should be compatible with most City enhancing mods. For example most of Jk's mods work fine with this, but in some locations clipping can occur. I tried what I could to make the placement of the Towers as compatible as possible, but due to the vast number of mods that change Towns and Cities that is nearly impossibly to please everyone.
Mods that add NPCs especially in Taverns work fine with this mod such as "Interesting NPCs" or any number of follower mods.
Works well with ClefJ's Rorikstead which I personally like very much.  Has been tested now to work with "Immersive Citizens".

The mod should work well for Frostfall users or other survival mods, since now you can cook and bake at the Inns and the baths should help if you are already suffering from hypothermia. The tubs are currently not "heated" but because the rooms are so small and all baths have some heat source I believe that the proximity to the fire will have the same effect when you sit in a tub. Feedback welcome, I have not used Frostfall ever since Chesko's Campfire came out.

Any mod that changes the interior layout of any Tavern, including Navmesh!

Special thanks to RefurbMadness for her help, inspiration and wonderful statics that I used for many containers. Be sure to visit her mods page too.
Thanks to Bethesda for a game that requires improving and to provide the tools to do so.

For those already using my mod "Friendlier Taverns" Simply install this file over the old one. I did not change the esp. name so you can upgrade with no hassle to your save game.

 RECOMMENDED MODS to enhance the experience with this mod: 

Bathing in Skyrim for actual bathing and shower animations to fully enjoy the baths.

Go to Bed for an immersive sleep experience when you rent a room.

Lets get Naked for obvious reasons.

Immersive Stables-Vanilla Edition, enhances all the vanilla Stables at the major Cities, I recommend it.
The mod by the same author "Immersive Stables" unfortunately conflicts with my mod at several locations at smaller towns.
