About this mod

Fancy remodel of Proudspire Manor, house for a thane of Haafingar in Solitude. Tiny house with decoration, bookshelves, and wine.

Permissions and credits
This is a conversion for Special Editionoriginal mod for Oldrim is here.

Requirements: DLCs and USSEP.

Unofficial patch dependency is here to stay because of changes to quests and location data.

I was a bit unhappy about all the differences between Proudspire's exterior and interior, so I decided to remodel the interior to make it closer to the exterior. It is nowhere near 100% match or anything like that, but it's a little bit closer than in vanilla, I think.

This is a completely different house with two floors and an attic. Kitchen and living room on the first floor, bedroom and lounge area with a couch on second, mostly garbage on third. See screenshots for details.

Is this mod lore friendly?

Nah, probably not really :p

Although I guess it depends. There is an immersive sweetroll on a beautiful silver plate (don't be a vampire?), barely hidden evidence of drug use and only one unopened book for the whole house. Also a unicorn on a tapestry and awesome looking fancy furniture.

From what I can tell, it's pretty performance friendly though: the house is small and most of the textures depend on your setup. But again, that's all relative.


Is there a place for family? Kids?

Nope. Not even for a spouse. It is more of an expensive man cave for a person of any gender. Lone soldier going on Amorous Adventures perhaps... By the way, there is a (subtle?) NSFW hint in the house (bedroom), so keep that in mind.




Of course, Jordis is here, but with mods like My Home Is Your Home you can find her a different place to stay (otherwise she will sandbox around the house and sleep on the couch).

If you want your kids to live in Solitude, check out Deithwen - Family Edition.




Functionality:

8 bookshelves for 11 books each (more if you use Unlimited Bookshelves, check out 'Images' tab to see how many books could fit in). Cooking pot, oven, alchemy lab – no animation, but all working. A lot of custom containers, two single beds (master bed and sofa* on the second floor), one weapon plaque for two weapons and a shield.

*Sofa is set to "Child can use", so if you have a kid follower, they should be able to sleep there too. Hypothetically. Make sure you have something to prevent scaling, like SIZE DOES MATTER. Again, no adoption, I'm only talking about followers here.

It is an apartment in a big city, so other crafting stations could be found elsewhere, especially with city mods. If you need more displays, I highly recommend Legacy of the Dragonborn, the museum is in Solitude as well.




Compatibility:

Probably incompatible with anything editing Proudspire Manor, lighting mods for example might cause small issues**. Should be good with city mods, because I only changed the patio on the outside, and city mods usually don't edit that area. If you came across some compatibility issues, let me know, I'll include it here.

**ELFX is more or less OK, just some lights in the wrong place, could be removed in console. Ideally it needs a patch to add candle smoke and such. Another way to deal with this is to install ELFX - NoProudspireManor.esp or just remove ELFX's edits to this cell in TES5Edit.
JK's seems alright.
Alternate Start - Live Another Life will need a patch if you choose to own Proudspire Manor from the start, otherwise you'll appear in a... shall we say in an unimmersive spot. The reason for that is because vanilla house is wider than this one. I kept the main door in about the same place as in vanilla hoping to prevent these sorts of issues... But it was the side door that screwed me over, lol. If you start in a different place, there would be no conflict. Or just jump in the void or tcl through the wall.




I recommend to only install this on a new game (aka start a new game with this mod already enabled), not to add to an existing save. Otherwise some things will be broken, even if you didn't visited the manor before. You can always experiment at your own expense of course, but racks won't work, a quest item will float in space etc. If you start a new game these issues should be avoided.

And yes, no house decoration purchases are needed, you only have to buy the house itself.

Thanks to this light switch script the light is dynamic: more warm during the night, more cold during the day. Most candles are off during daytime. I recommend using mods like Visible Windows or Rustic Windows to make windows themselves look differently depending on time of day.




Do submit pics with all the graphic enhancements, texture replacements, ENBs etc. Screenshots I uploaded made with Rudy ENB, some with ELFX as well.

Architecture pieces are vanilla (or based on vanilla), so how the house looks will depend on your (re)textures.





This mod is Nexus only and not for sale, do not reupload it anywhere.

If you want to port it to SE or do something else to it, just let me know at some point, give links, credits to modder resources' authors as well and all that, thanks.
