Skyrim Special Edition

About this mod

Adds decorative clotheslines and other washing-related items throughout Skyrim, for a touch of realism.

Permissions and credits
SSE note: I do not yet have Skyrim Special Edition installed. It may be some time before I do.

The updated .esp file and meshes available on this page were created/tested by Rusey.

Please bear in mind that this is otherwise an exact copy of the original Skyrim mod, and has not accounted for any little changes to the landscape that may have occurred in SSE.

This mod adds a touch of the ordinary to the homesteads of Skyrim in the form of many clotheslines - and occasionally washboards, basins and scrub brushes. They are simple decorative objects, placed with care in almost every civilized area of the game, with an emphasis on making houses, cabins and occasionally forts feel a little more like home.

New in 1.0: REAL WATER!

(Thanks Tamira!)


Video by Thyworm:

(This is a very old version of the mod on display, but you'll get the gist of it.)


At last, the long-awaited Full Release! All cities and towns laundrified! Real water in wash tubs!

100% built-in support for Expanded Towns and Cities, JK's Skyrim, Dawn of Skyrim and more in main file!

On the horizon: DLC version, someday, probably.


(Note: This is all pre-SSE!)
This requires only vanilla Skyrim and should be compatible with pretty much everything.
Script-free, close to zero performance impact, and thoroughly cleaned in TES5edit. 

These mods I have personally confirmed to be compatible:
Expanded Towns and Cities
JK's Skyrim
Dawn of Skyrim
Complete Solitude

Beautiful Whiterun
Perfect Whiterun
Cutting Room Floor 
Riverwood Reborn 2
...and hundreds of other mods that I happen to use!

As always, I invite people to test it out and point out any mod conflicts with clothesline placement, and (within reason) I can maybe scoot things around and accommodate you. I'd need screenshots. 

Known issues:
Despite being tucked in out-of-the-way spots, the clotheslines might occasionally interfere with NPC pathing.


Recommended for use with:
Expanded Towns and Cities

(Again, this is pre-SSE info.)
