DESCRIPTION

Discover or rediscover Jorrvaskr with this mod. This mod will change Jorrvaskr into Yourvaskr and improve your gaming experience as a Companion. Most players who join the Companions will ditch Jorrvaskr once Breezehome becomes available. The vanilla Jorrvaskr is lacking in storage containers and display racks and plaques. The Harbinger's quarter is no better than a room at an inn. Jorrvaskr is not at all practical as a main player home. Becoming the Harbinger has no benefits or consequences other than having Companion members as followers. This mod will not only turn Jorrvaskr into a great player home and put it more on par with the the best modded player homes, but also allows the Harbinger to make decisions that have benefits and effects. Players who have just joined the Companions can now have their own bed, some safe storage, and even a place near the bed to hang their weapons. This mod was designed to blend in with the vanilla game without looking too modded.

This Is Jorrvaskr was designed with compatibility and performance in mind so that you are not limited to using just this mod. Its clever and customizable design allows it to be use with just about any Whiterun overhaul. This mod will have no NavMesh conflict with any Whiterun overhaul and most clipping issues can be resolved by toggling off the conflicting objects. This design concept isn't just highly compatible with current mods, but will also be highly compatible with future mods. This customizability allows you to change Jorrvaskr to better fit your preference or for better performance. If you want a better looking Jorrvaskr, read the FEATURES section and toggle on the options that you want. Further improvements can be made by putting up shields and weapons. If you prefer an more vanilla Jorrvaskr, toggle off any option that you don't want. Toggling off options will also improve performance. Toggling off mannequins, Idle Markers, and dimming lights can further improve FPS. To customize Jorrvaskr, go to a "Decisions Board" or activator and use it to toggle any option on or off.

The greatest benefit of this mod is player home functionality. Safe storage, mannequins, weapon and shield displays, and most crafting stations are all available. Fast Entry, Fast Exit, and the Map Portal options will allow you to enter and exit the Living Quarters with less load doors. The Living Quarters is now more than doubled in size. The new guest quarter can accommodate an additional 16 NPCs without any children's beds or 18 NPCs with six children's beds. The optional loft can add six additional beds for NPCs to sleep in or 16 additional seats to relax in. The new lounge will give all NPCs an additional living space. The new areas are fully NavMeshed and have new idles for NPCs. To improve immersion, many of the added idle markers are customized. Instead of NPCs doing the same thing at the same spot over and over again, they may randomly read, write, browse, laugh, or drink. Many bugs that you noticed or didn't noticed in the vanilla game have been fixed. The lighting has been tweaked to give a flicker free experience with or without lighting mods. Some lights can be turn on and off or dimmed to help with this. Most of the enabled options can be disable using the Decisions Board that is in the cavern. Disable any feature that you don't want or that conflicts with other mods. Other options must be enabled using the Decisions Board in the Harbinger's bedroom. That board is only accessible after the changeover. With the Harbinger's Decisions Board, you can order a memorial fountain to be built for Kodlak and Skjor, build a tower to defend against dragons, or make changes to the Harbinger's room. This mod is clean, optimized, stable, and well made. The quality standard of this mod is as high as any mod available. This mod can be added or removed at any time. If you have already been to the living quarters before adding this mod, there may be a bunch of stuff on the floor. Simply think of this as someone having too much mead one night and making the mess. Tilma will clean it up within three days. Books and coin purses may take a bit longer. If you don't want to wait, use Sweeping Organizes Stuff, Jaxonz Positioner, or Tidy Up to put things back in their correct places. This mod doesn't use any external scripts or assets, so it can't be made to look as fancy as some other player home mods. It also must maintain a certain level of lore-friendliness, compatibility, performance, and aesthetics. This limits what this mod can do. However in terms of functionality, it is as good as any mod out there. This mod will give Jorrvaskr some features that are only found in much larger player home mods. For those that want a fancier Jorrvaskr, many of the walls have been kept bare so that you can put up painting or decorations using the right mod. This Is Jorrvaskr isn't just a simple Jorrvaskr overhaul. It is also a framework for many great add-ons. This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA will allow the Harbinger to turn the center room of the guest quarter into a kids room with 2-6 beds. When paired with Hearthfire multiple adoptions, you can adopt or move your family into Jorrvaskr. KASA will also allow you to sleep in the same bed as your Circle-member spouse. The AI add-ons will allow NPCs to make use of and go into the new areas of This Is Jorrvaskr. This Is Oarrvaskr will add fish plaques and fish tanks to the sub-basement. Overall, this mod will really improve your experience as a Companion.

This Is Jorrvaskr only enhances the building. If you want more NPCs, check out Jorrvaskr Tavern And Companions NPCs. It also has add-ons that uses the This Is Jorrvaskr framework. It does for the Companions what Immersive College NPCs does for the College of Winterhold. This Is Jorrvaskr - Bards will allow the Harbinger to recruit bards that will play instruments, sing, and trade general goods in the main hall. This Is Jorrvaskr - Tavern will allow you to buy food and drinks and hire new followers. This Is Jorrvaskr - ICONS will add 16 new followers that will appear as you explore skyrim and follow you after you become the Harbinger.

You do not have to join the Companions in order to use this mod. If you just want the visual enhancements, most non-Harbinger related options are available from the start. You can just go to the Cavern Decisions Board and enable the options that you want. Also, if you use a lot of follower mods, Jorrvaskr is now a great place for relocating your warrior type followers. It is centrally located in Skyrim and has 25 free beds at the start. You, yourself, can even stay there as a guest as long as you don't steal anything or cause any trouble. If you think that This Is Jorrvaskr does too much or too little, go and toggle some stuff off or on. It's really simpler than you think it is.

You should also look over the optional plugins. They contain Quality Of Life and Bugfix patches that will also improve other mods and are not just solely for This Is Jorrvaskr. These patches were created because no other mods address the issues addressed by these patches at the time of creation. While fixing other mods may be outside the scope of this mod, these patches are provided to give users of This Is Jorrvaskr the best gaming experience. If you are interested in Enhanced Skyrim Factions - The Companions Guild, check out the conversion guide in the Articles tab. If you want to use This Is Jorrvaskr with JK's Jorrvaskr, a patch is available from JK's Guild HQ Interiors Patch Collection.

WHAT'S NEW: New AI add-ons that will increase immersion.

While This Is Jorrvaskr focuses the building, Jorrvaskr Tavern And Companions NPCs focuses on services and NPCs. ICONS (Immersive Companions Of Northern Skies) is a mod you should look at if you want more followers for the Companions. Everyone should update to version 3.02 and update the necessary optional files.




FEATURES

This mod is very feature rich and highly customizable. While most options are toggle with the Decisions Boards, some options are toggle with their own activators. Not all options are listed. Some are meant for you to discover on your own. To get the best possible Jorrvaskr, you NEED to read the list of features below and toggle on the options that you want. Use some common sense when toggling options. If two options don't work together, it's because they weren't meant to be enabled at the same time.

INSTALLATION AND USAGE

General Procedure For Installing And Using Plugins
If you are adding any mod midplaythrough, make a "clean save" before enabling any plugin. Install the mod by adding the contents of the archive to the Data directory manually or with a mod manager. Sort the load order according to what is stated with the individual mod, add-on, or patch. Do NOT blindly rely on LOOT to sort your load order. LOOT does not always sort mods that aren't in its database correctly. Enable the mod and play. Click the spoiler tag below for more detailed instructions for each plugin.

This Is Jorrvaskr

This Is Jorrvaskr should, in most cases, load after any mod that edits the NavMesh of The Living Quarters. If another mod needs to load after This Is Jorrvaskr but also edits the NavMesh, loading This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA after that mod will restore the NavMesh. After starting Skyrim, go down into the cavern and use the Cavern Decisions Board to remove any features that you don't want or that conflicts with other mods. To use the Decisions Board, go up to it, aim your crosshair at the pages to find the selection that you want, then press activate. Use the information provided in the Compatibility and Notes sections as a guide when making selections. The Harbinger's Decisions Board and walk-in closet are accessible once you become Harbinger. The key to the closet will appear underneath the Harbinger's Decisions Board. In addition to the Decisions Boards, there are other activators throughout that can be use to toggle things on and off. There are also many invisible shield displays on some of the empty walls. To use them, go up to the wall and move your crosshair around. If nothing show up, then it's just a regular empty wall. If you are adding this midplaythrough, you need to make a clean save before enabling this mod. If You don't, the weapons and shield displays will not work until you exit and re-enter the cell. Not making a clean save may also cause mannequins to move about and display items to fall on the floor. Be aware that if you've already been to Jorrvaskr before adding this mod, certain data will be stored in your save. This includes the position of items that havok and the lock state of containers and doors. This means that items moved by this mod may end up on the floor until the cell resets. It also means that doors or containers that were unlocked or locked can't be changed by this mod. If you are replacing another Jorrvaskr mod with this mod midplaythrough, make a clean save without either mod enabled and wait/sleep for three days away from Jorrvasker before enabling this mod. You may also want to wait/sleep for three days away from Jorrvasker after adding this midplaythrough to avoid the above issues. Note that most options are off by default for compatibility reasons. If you want the best looking Jorrvaskr possible, you will have to enables all the possible options and place weapons, shields, armours, and books on the appropriate displays. Version 3 has an alchemy lab, enchanter, and imbuing chamber added to the workshop (storage room 3). The alchemy lab will be automatically enabled when you enter the boss area of Gallows Rock. This is the raised area in the room where Skjor fell in battle. Once the alchemy lab appears, the enchanter can be enable using the same note that toggles the blacksmith stations. The imbuing chamber can be enable using the same note once the alchemy lab appears and you have been to where the original imbuing chamber is in White Ridge Sanctum.

This Is Jorrvaskr - Bards (Bards will sing, play instruments, and sell goods)
This Is Jorrvaskr - Bards and BardsSpotTweak have been move to the Jorrvaskr Tavern And Companions NPCs mod page to keep all NPCs and bards plugins in the same place. If you want more NPCs to fill up Jorrvaskr or to improve immersion, you should check out Jorrvaskr Tavern And Companions NPCs.

This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA (Kids And Spouse Add-on)
This multipurpose add-on will allow you to adopt and move your kids and spouse to Jorrvaskr when paired with Hearthfire multiple adoptions. This mod does not require Hearthfire multiple adoptions, but without it, the kids room is just for show. This requires This Is Jorrvaskr v3.0 or later and must load after it. This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA should load after any mod that edits interior Jorrvaskr Cells or Locations data. It can load before or after image space enhancers depending on preference. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can also be used as a patch to restore the NavMesh, Location, and Cell data if any mod loaded after This Is Jorrvaskr overwrites them. In order to move your family to Jorrvaskr, you must have all three plugins enabled. Use the Harbinger's Decisions Board to change the Harbinger's bed and set up the children's room. The children's room comes with beds 1 and 2 by default. You can also add beds 3 and 4 and beds 5 and 6. Next, cast the "Bless Home" spell while in the Living Quarters. You may need to recast the spell if you change the number of beds later. Talk to your kids/spouse to adopt or move to the "New Home". If the dialogue to move doesn't appear, asking a steward for a children's room in any of the vanilla houses should make it appear. After adopting or moving, stay away from Jorrvaskr for a day or so before going back to give NPCs enough time to move into Jorrvaskr. Dragon attacks can cause delays. Note that unlike other player homes, you do not actually own Jorrvaskr. Thus you may not get all the comments that you would in other homes and some of the children's comment may seem odd. Just think of these comments as kids being kids. The noble chest and the apothecary's satchels in the children's room should not be used for storage. All other containers are safe. Version 2.201026 and later allows you to sleep in the same bed as your Circle-member spouse. To use the beds, hang an Amulet Of Mara above the door on outside the spouse's bedroom and move your cross hair around the bed until you can sleep in it. An amulet can be placed for Skjor's room after the changeover. Due to the limitation of the vanilla scripts, you do not actually need to have an Amulet Of Mara. The sleeping positions may be off at times due to quirks in the Skyrim engine. You do not actually have to be married to share any of the beds, but it is highly frowned upon by Skjor if you are not. This feature is compatible with the Go To Bed mod. Even if you have no interest in adopting kids, this add-on is still useful as a patch and for the pet markers and extra features.

This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA-JK

This patch will make This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA work with JK's Jorrvaskr when using the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. Load it after This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA and JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. This patch is also intended as a multi-patch. It fixes a few things that were overlooked by the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. It also toggles off some Decisions Board options that are incompatible with JK's Jorrvaskr. This means that it can be use to make This Is Jorrvaskr - Tavern work with JK's Jorrvaskr without having to manually toggle them off yourself. This will only work if you haven't activate those toggles yet. Toggles that have been activated will still require you to toggle them off. Lastly, it contains a redundancy of the correct position of the door to the basement. Loading it after any mod that edits the door and using the JK's Jorrvaskr - Persistent Reference Fix will solve the door positioning issue. The truth about the door issue is that it is not a bug in the mod. It is caused by an incorrect load order or by not having the correct patch. If you notice that NPCs are moving strangely in the hallway between the twins' rooms, it's because of some bad triangles in the NavMesh in the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch.esp plugin. See NOTES section for more detail. While this patch can load after most mods, it should load before interior sound and lighting mods. If you were using KASA before and you want to add JK's Jorrvaskr and This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA-JK, you MUST first make a clean save without This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA. You may have to move your family out of Jorrvaskr before doing so. Afterwards, enable This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA and add JK's Jorrvaskr, JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch, and This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA-JK. Then, setup the children's room, cast the "Bless Home" spell, and move your family back. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - AI

Adds additional AI packages to the original NPCs in Jorrvaskr so that they will go to the new areas of This Is Jorrvaskr. Companions will train in the new training room MWF in the mornings for one hour. Brill will work in the workshop, Vignar will check out the shrine or fish aquarium, and Tilma will work in the pantry a few times a week. Brill, Vignar, and Tilma were also given AI packages for during the attack so that they aren't acting inappropriate if you are using a mod such as Jorrvaskr Tavern which adds cheering idles. AI packages are added by quest and will not create compatibility issues. This mod is design to work with AI Overhaul, Enhanced Skyrim Factions - The Companions Guild, and Immersive Citizens - AI Overhaul. These packages will not work if any of the NPCs other than Kodlak or Skjor are dead or disabled when you add the mod. It requires This Is Jorrvaskr 3.0 or higher and should load after it. (esl flagged)

This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA-AI
If you move your spouse into Jorrvaskr, your spouse's daily routine may not be as interesting as the one given by an AI overhaul. This mod will give your spouse more AI packages while living at Jorrvaskr. Your spouse will do chores, train outside, train inside if it's raining, visit shops, eat lunch and dinner with the children if you have any, read in the study, or relax in the bath if the middle water is turned on. If your spouse's outside training conflicts with the Companions, you can set the training room from reserved to open to have your spouse train only in the training room. If you move your spouse out of Jorrvaskr, your spouse will go back to using only the packages provided by Hearthfire multiple adoptions. It requires This Is Jorrvaskr v3.0 or later, This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA v3.0 or later, and Hearthfire multiple adoptions. (esl flagged)

This Is Jorrvaskr - Lucia
It just doesn't seem right that there's a poor orphan sleeping out in the rain and cold when Jorrvaskr has a plenty of empty beds. With this mod, Lucia will sleep in Jorrvaskr MWF, during winter, or when it's raining. AI packages are added by quest so it is compatible with everything. If she is adopted, she will use the adoption AI packages instead. With this mod you can not toggle off the children's room, but you can still toggle the beds. It requires and should load after This Is Jorrvaskr v3.0 or later and This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA v3.0 or later. (esl flagged)

This Is Jorrvaskr - Holidays
This add-on improves on the holiday decorations of Jorrvaskr Holidays and integrates them with the Holidays mod by isoku. Most of the interior decorations and the back porch lanterns are controlled by the toggle on the the barrel in front of Skjor's room. The rest of the back porch decorations and the front decorations are controlled by Holidays. The decorations that are controlled by Holidays are highly compatible and should not cause any issues. The decorations controlled by the toggle can be left off, left on, or manually toggled for every holiday. The holidays of Tales and Tallows, Warriors Festival, and Saturalia have additional decorations and will stand out over the other holidays. This mod is compatible with most Whiterun mods and can load before of after them. Open Cities and other exterior city mods are supported, but you will still need patches for compatibility between those mods and Holidays. Any mod that isn't compatible can usually be made compatible by using a positioning mod to move the objects to compatible positions or below floors. This mod requires This Is Jorrvaskr and Holidays and should load after them. Do not use this with Jorrvaskr Holidays. On the other hand, using this with This Is Jorrvaskr - Tavern, This Is Jorrvaskr - Bards, and JorrvaskrTavern - SOS is highly recommended. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Oarrvaskr, This Is Oarrvaskr - Lite
One of the goals of the This Is Jorrvaskr mod is to make Jorrvaskr into as good a player home as the Hearthfire homes. With the release of Skyrim AE, the Hearthfire homes now have an aquarium section. In order to be "as good as", Jorrvaskr should also have an aquarium area. This is Oarrvaskr will turn Storage Room 2 in the sub-basement into an aquarium with CC Fishing fish tanks and plaques. With This Is Oarrvaskr, you can actually display more fish in Jorrvaskr than you can in the Hearthfire homes. This Is Oarrvaskr has 17 more plaques, tank space for 3 more large fish, and tank space for 24 more small fish than any of the Hearthfire homes. This Is Oarrvaskr - Lite will only replace the  west side of storage room 2. This allows you to keep the shrine on the east side. The fish tanks have been designed to be interesting and lively. The fish routes have been carefully designed and tested to avoid fish clipping with the glass and each other. These are great mod for anyone who enjoys CC Fishing. They can be added or removed at anytime. These are light plugins (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. They can be added or removed at anytime. Upscaled texture for the fish tanks are available from Breezehome Oarrvaskr Fish Aquarium.

This Is Jorrvaskr - GS (General Stores)
This add-on adds General Stores activators to Jorrvaskr. This will allow you to sort your items and access the same storage from different containers and locations. This is great if you have multiple homes with General Store activators. You can access the same storage from different homes without having to move your items from one home to the other. The right side of the cupboard that's near the front doors in the main hall will access the General Stores Master Chest. Activating the ship logo on the express crates will also access the master chest. Many of the containers in the Living Quarters also have General Stores activators on the right side. Activating the left side or other parts of the containers will access the containers. Version 3.0 requires This Is Jorrvaskr v3.0 or later and General Stores - Auto Sorting Cloud Storage Resource for packrats SE Convert. This Is Jorrvaskr with This Is Jorrvaskr - GS should satisfy all you storage needs. This add-on should load after This Is Jorrvaskr but before This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - GS-JK
This patch will make This Is Jorrvaskr - GS work with JK's Jorrvaskr when using the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. Only needs to load after This Is Jorrvaskr - GS. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - CoMAP
This is a json file for use with CoMAP - Common Marker Addon Project. This Is Jorrvaskr - CoMAP2M will change the two Jorrvaskr lodge map markers (regular and Tamriel World) into CoMAP Companions map markers (Wuuthrad icon). The two landmark map markers will remain the same. This Is Jorrvaskr - CoMAP4M will change all four map markers. Do not select the Jorrvaskr Map Marker option when installing CoMAP. This Is Jorrvaskr - CoMAP is all that's needed. The file "This Is Jorrvaskr.json' should go in the MapMarkers subfolder in the Data directory. It requires both This Is Jorrvaskr and CoMAP. Note that the regular (Whiterun World) landmark map marker is enabled by default. If you are using Open Cities or another exterior city mod, use the Cavern Decisions Board to toggle it off and toggle on the Tamriel World landmark map marker. The lodge map markers (regular and Tamriel World) are disabled by default and need to be toggle on at the Harbinger's Decision Board after you become the Harbinger. The regular map markers are for the Whiterun World space. The Tamriel World map markers are for Open Cities users. The lodge map markers have the teleport markers by Jorrvaskr's front doors. The landmark map markers have the teleport markers at the bottom of the steps to Jorrvaskr. This is to prevent players from accidentally bypassing quest events. After you become Harbinger, there are no more Companions quest events, and it is more convenient to use the teleport markers by the front doors. Only one map marker should be enabled at a time. All map markers will be correctly disabled during the Battle for Whiterun. This Is Jorrvaskr - CoMAP doesn't have any plugin, will not take up any of the 255 plugin slots, and can be added or removed at anytime. If the Wuuthrad map marker doesn't appear after you've toggled it on, save your game, exit, restart Skyrim, and load the save.

This Is Jorrvaskr - CWE (Capital Whiterun Expansion)
This patch is an alternate method to using the Decisions Board for providing compatibility between This Is Jorrvaskr and Capital Whiterun Expansion (normal or compatibility). Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. The patch will allow you to use the back trees, chopping block axe holder, Dibella fountain, and Talos statues options. The back banners from Capital Whiterun Expansion can now be toggle and the ones from This Is Jorrvaskr have been removed. The statue of Ysgramor from CWE is replaced by the one from This Is Jorrvaskr. The extremely bright light in the back porch is now at normal brightness. The wall torches around Jorrvaskr were removed because they didn't give off any light and were a fire hazard to the wooden building. Removing them along with the wooden planks in the back porch and other unnecessary items should also improve performance. The other wooden planks in Whiterun can now be conveniently toggle by activating the dagger on the square table in the back porch. While the planks can already be disable using a console command, this method is far more convenient and also allows you to toggle them back on later if you change your mind or want to have them during the rainy or snowy seasons. In version 1.2 or later, activate the hilt of the dagger to toggle the planks in the new northern district and activate the blade of the dagger to toggle the planks in the Plains District. Lastly, this patch fixes the NavMesh in the stairwell to the other district. NPCs will now use the stairwell. This patch requires both mods and must load after them. It can be use along with other patches including This Is Jorrvaskr - DOS. It will not work for the Open Cities version of CWE. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - CWE-OCS (Capital Whiterun Expansion - Open Cities Skyrim)
This patch improves compatibility between This Is Jorrvaskr and the Open Cities version of Capital Whiterun Expansion. This light plugin requires This Is Jorrvaskr, Capital Whiterun Expansion, and Open Capital Whiterun. Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. The patch will allow you to use the back trees, chopping block axe holder, and Dibella fountain options. The back banners from Capital Whiterun Expansion can now be toggle and the ones from This Is Jorrvaskr have been removed. The statue of Ysgramor from CWE is replaced by the one from This Is Jorrvaskr. The extremely bright light in the back porch is now at normal brightness. The wall torches around Jorrvaskr were removed because they didn't give off any light and were a fire hazard to the wooden building. Removing them along with the wooden planks in the back porch and other unnecessary items should also improve performance. This patch requires all three mods and must load after them. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - DOS (Dawn Of Skyrim)
This optional patch improves compatibility between This Is Jorrvaskr and  Dawn Of Skyrim. Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. This patch disables the smelter to allow you to put up the statue of Ysgramor. Three of the taller trees and the spike barricades were removed to improve performance. The added crafting stations at the Skyforge were also removed to allow you to use your own choice of Skyforge mods. The three banners in the back porch were removed in favor of the optional ones from This Is Jorrvaskr. The clipping issues with the thickets at the bar have also been fixed. Starting with version 1.2, the glow of the two lanterns in the back porch, the mammoth bone, the back tower banner, the smelter, and the front banners can be toggle on and off by activating the top or sides of the lantern at the square table in the back porch. This patch only requires Dawn Of Skyrim and should load after it. It can also be use to provide compatibility for other mods as well. It can be use to provide compatibility between DOS And Skyforge Complete. It can be use to improve compatibility between DOS and DMT's Jorrvaskr Extreme Renovation by removing the floating tree by the apiaries, the banner clipping at the front, the banner doubling in the back porch, and the floating banner in the back. It will work alongside other patches including This Is Jorrvaskr - CWE. It will not work for the Open Cities version of DOS. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - DOS-OCS (Dawn Of Skyrim - Open Cities Skyrim)
This patch improves compatibility between This Is Jorrvaskr and the Open Cities version of Dawn of Skyrim (Director's Cut) SE when using the Dawn of Skyrim Director's Cut OCS Patch from Random Open Cities Patches. Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. This patch disables the smelter to allow you to put up the statue of Ysgramor. Three of the taller trees and the spike barricades were removed to improve performance. The three banners in the back porch were removed in favor of the optional ones from This Is Jorrvaskr. The glow of the two lanterns in the back porch, the mammoth bone, the back tower banner, the smelter, and the front banners can be toggle on and off by activating the top or sides of the lantern at the square table in the back porch. The Tamriel World map marker is enabled by default. The Whiterun World map marker, Dibella fountain, pelt station, and Talos statues are all disabled. This patch requires This Is Jorrvaskr, Open Cities Skyrim, Dawn of Skyrim (Director's Cut) SE, and the Dawn of Skyrim Director's Cut OCS Patch. Load it after all of them in that order. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime. See Notes section on update patches from Blues Skyrim to Dawn of Skyrim.

This Is Jorrvaskr - DOS-OCS-JK (Dawn Of Skyrim - Open Cities Skyrim - JK's Skyrim)

Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. This patch disables the smelter to allow you to put up the statue of Ysgramor.

This patch requires This Is Jorrvaskr, JK's Skyrim, Open Cities Skyrim, Dawn of Skyrim (Director's Cut) SE, and the JK - DoS - OCS Patch. Load it after all of them in that order. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime. See Notes section on update patches from Blues Skyrim to Dawn of Skyrim.

This Is Jorrvaskr - WER

Optional compatibility patch for Whiterun Expansion Redone. It repositions the exterior trapdoor to look better with WER. It requires and should load after This Is Jorrvaskr. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

This Is Jorrvaskr - WWM (Warbird's Whiterun Metropolis)
This patch improves compatibility between This Is Jorrvaskr and Warbird's Whiterun Metropolis. Note that this patch is optional and is not necessary for compatibility. This patch disables the pelt station and allows the chopping block axe holder to be use. It also repositions some markers. This patch requires both This Is Jorrvaskr and Warbird's Whiterun Metropolis and should load after them. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

Jorrvaskr-IC-Fixes, Jorrvaskr-IC-Door, and Jorrvaskr-IC-CB (Jorrvaskr Immersive Citizens Chopping Block Fix)
These are standalone patches to fix issues between Immersive Citizens and Jorrvaskr. Jorrvaskr-IC-CB fixes clipping issues between plants added by Skyrim AE/SE and the chopping block added by Immersive Citizens. It should load before IC and most Whiterun overhauls. Jorrvaskr-IC-Door fixes Immersive Citizens' bad positioning of Jorrvaskr's front doors. Jorrvaskr-IC-Fixes is a merge of the two patches. Jorrvaskr-IC-Door and Jorrvaskr-IC-Fixes should load after IC and before most Whiterun overhauls. These patches only requires Skyrim and can be use with any mod except Open Cities. This may require a new game to work depending on the mods you are using. Some mods will prevent the plants from being move if you are adding this midplaythrough. These are light plugins (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots.

Jorrvaskr Holidays
This standalone mod allows you to decorate the interior and exterior of Jorrvaskr with holiday decorations. The decorations are very minimal to prevent compatibility issues, but are enough to indicate that it is a holiday. They are also not holiday specific, so that they can be put up for any holiday or even left out all year round. The Holidays mod by isoku works great with this mod and can be use to indicate when there is a holiday. To put up the decorations, go to the barrel in front of Skjor's room and activate the top of it. This is a standalone mod and does not require any other mod. It is design to be compatible with most Jorrvaskr mods (including DMT's Jorrvaskr Extreme Renovation, JK's Jorrvaskr, Enhanced, Jorrvaskr Quarters, and Orlando's Jorrvaskr Living) and should load before any of them. This mod is also compatible with most Whiterun mods (no known incompatibility) and can load before of after them. Open Cities is supported as of Version 1.1.  Any mod that isn't compatible can usually be made compatible by using a positioning mod to move the objects to compatible positions or below floors. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime. If you are using both This Is Jorrvaskr and Holidays, you should use This Is Jorrvaskr - Holidays instead. This Is Jorrvaskr - Holidays will add more holiday decorations than Jorrvaskr Holidays.

Holidays - Whiterun IC Patch, Holidays - Whiterun IC-OCS Patch
Moves the mead table in front of Belethor's General Goods from the Holidays mod to avoid clipping with the WallLeanMarker marker from Immersive Citizens. (esl flagged)

Jorrvaskr Trapdoor
This standalone mod adds a trapdoor between Jorrvaskr's Main Hall and Living Quarters. This is to reduce congestion in the stairwell. If you use mods that add too many NPCs to Jorrvaskr, it can cause congestion in the stairwell. By adding another door, traffic can be divided between the doors and congestion in the stairwell can be reduced or eliminated. The door is also closer to the Harbinger quarters and Jorrvaskr's front doors. This will allow you to get to and from the Harbinger quarters quicker. This is a standalone mod and does not require any other mod. It is design to be compatible with most Jorrvaskr mods (including JK's Jorrvaskr) and should load before any of them. If you use this with the This Is Jorrvaskr mod, you should remove any shields that are in the path of the ladder before enabling this mod. If you don't, you won't be able to remove the shields afterwards. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

Paintings for This Is Jorrvaskr-SFCO
Compatibility patch for Paintings for This Is Jorrvaskr, Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul, and SFCO - This Is Jorrvaskr Patch. Requires only This Is Jorrvaskr and Paintings for Jorrvaskr. Load it after Paintings for Jorrvaskr. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime.

Paintings for This Is Jorrvaskr-JK-SFCO
Compatibility patch for This Is Jorrvaskr, Paintings for JKs Jorrvaskr, Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul, and JKs Jorrvaskr - SFCO - This Is Jorrvaskr patch when using the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. Requires only This Is Jorrvaskr and Paintings for JKs Jorrvaskr. Load it after Paintings for JKs Jorrvaskr. Do not use Paintings for This Is Jorrvaskr or Paintings for This Is Jorrvaskr-SFCO when using the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. Do not use SFCO - This Is Jorrvaskr Patch or JKs Jorrvaskr - SFCO patch when using the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch. 

SoundsofSkyrimComplete - Trigger Patch
This patch changes the SoSCivSnoreTrigger Static from Sounds of Skyrim Complete SE into an invisible marker with no collision. This will prevent all floating and clipping issues caused by the static pots. This means it will get rid of the three floating pots in the guest quarter. This patch only requires Sounds of Skyrim Complete SE. This is a universal patch and can be used to fix compatibility with other mods as well (including JK's Jorrvaskr and Jorrvaskr Redone). This plugin only needs to load after Sounds of Skyrim Complete SE and can load before or after other mods. This is a light plugin (ESPFE/esl flagged) and will not take up any of the 254 esm/esp slots. It can be added or removed at anytime. This patch is only for Sounds of Skyrim Complete SE and will not work with Sounds of Skyrim - Complete Edition - MCM. If you are using that mod, you can use a positioning mod such as Jaxonz Positioner, Dylbill's Positioner, or Decorator Helper to move the three log piles out of the way.



RECOMMENDED LOAD OARDER EXAMPLE:

This is a suggested load order example to show where the add-ons and patches should load in respect to the main mods. Your actual load order should not look like this as some of these plugins are not compatible with each other. Add-ons and patches that are not on this list only need to load after the mods that they are dependent on and can load before or after the main mods. Read the INSTALLATION AND USAGE and COMPATIBILITY sections for help with the load order of those plugins.

UPDATING

If you are updating to v3.02 from v3.0, just replace the file. If you are updating to v3.0 or higher from v2.221216 or higher, method two is recommended, but method one should still work. Method two is recommended for everything else. Use a clean up mod to clean up the mess or stay away from Jorrvaskr for three days. If you get weapons or shields on the floor, exiting and re-entering the cell should fix it if you are using USSEP. Otherwise pick them up and put them back on the display yourself. Upgrading to version 3.0 or later will cause a mess in a couple of places. You can stay away from Jorrvaskr for 72 game hours or use one of the clean up mods. If you are using any of the optional files, you should update to a version released on December 16, 2022 or later. If it didn't have a newer release, then an update wasn't needed. Version 3.0 and higher will require some of the optional files to be updated as well.

Method One: (Try this method first when updating from any version.)
Before updating, there are a few things to be aware of if you are using version one. The barrel by the table in the kicthen in version one is now a sack in version two. Anything that was in the barrel will now be in the sack after updating with this method. One of the optional free chest in Skjor's room has been removed. Remove anything in any free chest in Skjor's room that you wish to keep before updating. The bookshelves in the walk-in-closet have been reworked in version two. Remove all items from these bookshelves before updating. You do not have to remove anything else from any displays, mannequins, or storage containers. They will correctly be where you left them even if the display, mannequin, or container has been moved. Other references that have been moved will not be in their new locations until the cell resets. These items may end up on the floor until then. If you are not updating from version one, you can ignore the previous steps. To update, make a clean save before updating. Make the clean Save by going to the Underforge or the Temple of Kynareth and saving. If something goes wrong you can fall back on this save. Exit the game. Take note of where the old mod is in the load order. Uninstall the old mod. Install the new mod. Position the new mod at the same load order position as the old mod. Enable the new mod and test out your game.

Method Two: (Use this method to update from any version if you have issues with the mod after using the first method.)

The following updating method will ensure that everything works. Make a clean save before updating. Make the clean save by going to the Underforge or the Temple of Kynareth and saving. If something goes wrong you can fall back on this save. Remove all items from containers, displays, bookshelves, mannequins, and anything left in the areas added by this mod. Remove any unique item from the mod from your inventory if possible. Make another clean save. Exit the game. Take note of where the old mod is in the load order. Uninstall the old mod. Start the game without this mod enabled. Make another clean save. This will flush out some left over data from the old mod. Install the new mod. Position the new mod at the same load order position as the old mod. Enable the new mod and test out your game. You will have to grab the master key again to unlock the closet. This may be a bit of a hassle, but it is sometimes necessary when you're updating between major version numbers.

General updating procedure for mods with minor updates (reference additions, but no reference changes):
Make a clean save. Note the load order position of the old mod. Uninstall the old mod. Install the updated mod. Place the updated mod at the same load order position as the old mod. Enable the mod and play.

General updating procedure for mods with major updates (reference changes, switching to esl/ESPFE or compacted mods):
Remove all personal items that are in containers from the mod. Remove all personal items that are in the new areas from the mod. Remove any unique item from the mod from your inventory if possible. Make a clean save. Exit the game. Note the load order position of the old mod. Uninstall the old mod. Start the game without the new mod and make another save. Exit the game. Install the updated mod. Place the updated mod at the same load order position as the old mod. Enable the mod and play.



UNINSTALLING

Remove all items from containers, displays, bookshelves, mannequins, and anything left in the floor area added by this mod. Clear all planters. Set the Wuuthrad display to the locked position. Put on the lights by the sides of the doors to the group sleeping quarter. Restore the table on the north side of the group sleeping quarter. Dim the lights in the Harbinger's bedroom. Use the Harbinger's Decisions Board to remove the apiaries, Harbinger's planters, loft, and memorial. Use the Harbinger's Decisions Board to restore the Harbinger's bed, the Harbinger's bedroom, and Skjor's bed and chest. Use the Cavern Decisions Board to remove the Dibella fountain, main hall dining chairs, and pelt station. Depending on the extra plugins that you used and the decisions that you made, you may have to add or remove other items as well. Next, make a clean save by going to the Underforge or the Temple of Kynareth and saving. Now, you can remove the mod. Remove contents of the archive manually or with a mod manager. Some items may still need a cell reset to return to their correct position. You can sleep, wait, or stay away from Jorrvaskr for three days. Note that some changes made by this mod will persists even after its removal. For example, vanilla references that were altered to not respawn, will continue to not respawn.


COMPATIBILITY

This Is Jorrvaskr is design for maximum compatibility to avoid unnecessary patching. Currently, all patches (including patches by other modders) are optional except for the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch, This Is Jorrvaskr - BOTN, and SoundsofSkyrimComplete - Trigger Patch. This means that if you follow the directions and have the correct load order, you do not need a patch. The patches are provided because they provide additional options. The following mods are compatible unless otherwise stated. Note that some options must be enabled or disabled using the Decisions Boards or other activators to maintain compatibility with some mods. Mods without load order specification mean that load order does not matter with these mods. Mods specifying a preference base load order mean that the mods can load before or after, but there will be visual or other differences. Note that the NavMesh changes in the main hall can be overwritten by other mods without consequence. The NavMesh in the basement will require a patch if the other mod needs to load after This Is Jorrvaskr. All mods on this list have been confirmed to be compatible to a certain extent. Note that while these mods are compatible with This Is Jorrvaskr, they may not be compatible with each other and will require a patch. Mods that are not on this list may still be compatible. They just have not been tested. This list and instructions will be updated as needed. Click the spoiler tag below for list.

NOTES

This section will answer most of your questions. Any question that you post will be answered here if it isn't answered here or in the other sections already. You do not need to read this section in order to use the mod, but it will help a lot. You can use CTRL+F to search this section if your looking for something specific. Reading this section can add a +10 to intelligence.

If you have any issues with this mod, read the writing that's below. If you don't have any issues with this mod, read the writing that's below. A plus ten to intelligence is very beneficial even when using other mods. If you have issues outside of what is written below, download the save in the miscellaneous section and test the mod with it. If the issues do not occur with the save but occur with your save, then it means that the problem is with your save. You can try to fix this by making a clean save, disabling the mod, making another clean save, and enabling the mod. Use Updating Method Two as a guide when doing this or you will lose your stuff. If the issues occur even with the downloaded save, then the problem is likely a mod conflict or a load order issue. More Informative Console can be used to identify the conflicting mod in some cases. If it's not a mod conflict or a load order issue, put in a report in the Bugs tab. If the problem is something that you did, post it the Posts tab so that others can learn from your mistake. Note that This Is Jorrvaskr and all options have only been tested on the English version of Skyrim SE 1.5.97 and later. Any other version including VR may or may not work correctly.

When posting issues, it's important that you provide as much information as possible. It will increase the chances of you getting a correct solution. Troubleshooting other people's mod issues is like shooting a target while blindfolded. The person with the bow and arrow is relying on you for information about what direction the target is in, how far away is the target, what direction the wind is blowing, and how strong the wind is blowing. Without the necessary information, shooting blindly will likely get someone an arrow in the knee. If you don't provide enough info, most people won't bother to respond to your post because it is a waste of their time. Understand that their time is as important to them as your time is important to you. Less popular mods do not get the amount of views that the more popular mods get. This means that fewer people will see your post and fewer people will respond to it. Therefore, it is important that you read this description page and follow all directions correctly. Many of the time, the answer you need is already here.

One of the best tip for playing Skyrim is to NEVER reload. What you should always do instead is to do a "clean load". Clean loading is first exiting the game, restarting the game, then loading a save. Reloading will contaminate your save. This is not an opinion. It is a fact. Unfortunately, the majority of mod users are not aware of this. Reloading has actually been an issue since Morrowind. Sadly, the majority of Morrowind players are just as ignorant about reloading as Skyrim players are. You may be wondering why a game such as Skyrim SE can have the same issues as the older game of Morrowind, especially since they use different engines. It is likely because the programmers were trying to save time by using the same faulty programming codes. This happens more often than people are aware of. This issue has been confirmed in Morrowind, Skyrim LE, and Skyrim SE. It hasn't been tested with Oblivion. Most of the time, players can get away with reloading because the contamination is small. However, this becomes more problematic when using heavily scripted mods. Many of the quicksave issues that most people complained about are actually not the fault of quicksaving, but are instead caused by quickloading, which is also reloading. Reloading can cause CTDs, corrupt script variables, and break quests. Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJPzMAXSprU for more proof of the issue.

This mod is highly customizable. Many features in this mod can be toggle (enable and disable) using the Decisions boards or other activators. This will allow you to disable features that you don't want or that conflicts with other mods. Look at the images in the Image tab to help locate Decisions boards and other activators. Save your game after toggling anything, as Skyrim can occasionally crash after something is disabled. This is a Skyrim issue and not a mod issue. If it does crash, it will occur within the first few seconds the player is in range of the cell where the objects were disabled. If it doesn't crash within that time, it will not crash later. This type of crash will not be passed on to your save, so there's no need to worry that your game will crash upon loading the save. After using the Decisions boards and saving, go to the affected cell to ensure that no crash will occur. If your game is heavily modded, it is best not to toggle everything at once. This will reduce the chances of crashing. Also after enabling or disabling anything, it is best to exit and re-enter the cell before interacting with any of those things. This will ensure that displays and mannequins will work properly.

This mod is highly compatible by design. Most mods are compatible without the need for any patching at all. In many cases the mod is compatible from the start. In other cases, you only need to activate a few activators to obtain compatibility. You will, however, lose some features when doing so. In some cases the incompatibilities between the features of this mod and other mods is just clipping due to plants, trees, or other objects. If you want to have the features without the clipping, mods such as Jaxonz Positioner, Dylbill's Positioner, or Decorator Helper can be use to move or remove the objects that clip. Even weapon racks and plaques can be moved. Those mods can also be used to place weapons, shields, or other object to decorate your home. Also note that minor cell data conflicts such as water data, fog distance, and imagespace color are irrelevant with this mod and won't cause any issues.

The trapdoor to the cavern is in the kitchen area and is directly below the wall mounted sabre cat. A simple tip on how to find doors in-game is to open up the local map and move the crosshair over the keyhole icons. If you can't get to the kitchen area, it may have been blocked off by an incompatible mod.

If you are using JK's Skyrim, Dawn of Skyrim, and Capital Whiterun Expansion together or in any combination, you do not need a patch to make them compatible with This Is Jorrvaskr. This Is Jorrvaskr will still be compatible with them the same way it is compatible with each mod individually. Simply follow the instructions for each individual mod. The optional plugins,  This Is Jorrvaskr - CWE and This Is Jorrvaskr - DOS, can be use individually, together, or not at all depending on preference. They can also be use in any combination and any load order with JK-DoS-CWrE - This is Jorrvaskr from JK's Skyrim_Dawn of Skyrim_Capital Whiterun - Fixes and Patches. Note that the patches that are use and the load order they are in will affect what needs to be toggle and what can be toggle. You will have to experiment to see what combination and load order is best for you. If you find this to be too complicated, simply don't use any patch. This Is Jorrvaskr will still be compatible without them.

If a mod has its filename changed but not its FormIDs such as the case with Dawn of Skyrim, patches can easily be updated by the following procedure. Install the mod and the patches. Start Wrye Bash (Wrye Smash in Skyrim SE) and choose the correct game. Click the Mods tab in the left panel if it isn't there already. Left click on the plugin that needs to be updated in the left panel. In the right panel, right click on the name of the master that needs changing. Click on "Change to..." and choose the appropriate master by typing the filename WITH the extension or by clicking it in the window. Click "Open" on the bottom right of the open window. The filename in the list of masters in the right panel of Wrye Bash should now be updated. Click "Save" at the bottom of the list of master in the right panel. Note that this only works if the FormIDs of the mods have not changed. If the FormIDs have changed or if some references in the master have been deleted that are needed by the patch, the resulting patch may cause CTDs and be unusable. You should open the patch with TES5Edit (SSEEdit in Skyrim SE) and run an error check. Any error that exists should be corrected, and the patch should be tested before use in actual game play. Note that zero error does not necessarily indicate that the patch is good. A quick fix for some errors is to resave the patch with the Creation Kit, auto clean with TES5Edit, recheck for errors, and retest. Note this quick fix method can not be use for all patches. Some patches such as This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA will have some of its content be incorrectly removed if resaved in the Creation Kit or auto cleaned with TES5Edit.

Two options on the Harbinger's Decisions Board will allow Eorlund Gray-Mane and Fralia Gray-Mane to sell enchanted items. With the era of the werewolf coming to an end, it makes sense for the Companions to enhance their fighting ability in a different way. This mod adds Hearthfire-style merchant chests to both merchants. The chests have a maximum of ten enchanted items each and should respawn every two weeks. The chances of items appearing are very small, so expect the number of items to be closer to two or three. This is meant to supplement the vendor items rather than overhaul them. This will keep things fair and balanced. Further testing is needed to determine if the number of items need to be increased. Be aware that this feature does not work with Open Cities. Also the item count from these chest will be displayed wrong. For whatever reason, a count of one will be displayed as two and a count of two will be displayed as four. Since I don't know what causes this, I don't know how to fix it. If the wrong item count bothers you, you should not enable the chests.

This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA (Kids And Spouse Add-on) only adds activity markers to the Living Quarters and not the main hall nor exteriors. This is for performance and compatibility reasons. Too many idle markers can affect performance. All the exterior markers are already provide by the vanilla game. If you are using Open cities, they will be provided by Open cities. Jorrvaskr isn't an ideal place for kids. Initially, I had no intentions of adding this feature. However, upon further thoughts, it does seem to be a better place for children than outside in the cold. In the time of knights, knights would take young boys on as squires. Having kids stay and train in Jorrvaskr doesn't seem to be any different. Also, Farkas and Vilkas were raised in Jorrvaskr. The children's room is a makeshift room which fits in with the military style of Jorrvaskr and also reemphasizes the fact that Jorrvaskr isn't an ideal place for kids. In earlier versions of this add-on, the kids can go through the wall when using the practice dummy in the children's room. This caused issues with the AI and lead to some stuttering. Some changes were made to prevent this. However, if this still occurs, the practice dummy may need to be relocated. If you marry one of the Companions, you can choose to move to your spouse's place or "Our new home." Both places will be Jorrvaskr, but your spouse's daily routine will be different. Depending on the mods you are using, you may want to keep the more elaborate daily routine that comes with your spouse's place. Note that the game only allows kids to move into your house. If you are living with your spouse and later adopt, your spouse will automatically move into the house you have chosen for the kids and will lose the more elaborate daily routine. While version 2.201026 or later allows you to sleep in the same bed as your Circle-member spouse, it does not add any extra storage. This is to avoid possible compatibility issues and also because the hallway storage area is far more efficient. If you are not a Companion, you won't be able to use the hallway storage without using This Is Jorrvaskr - GS. All sleeping bonuses will work with KASA as long as you are not a werewolf. If you are using the mod Storefront, you may need to move your spouse to Breezehome first to get the stall to appear. You can afterwards move back to Jorrvaskr. If for whatever reason KASA and Hearthfire multiple adoptions doesn't suit you, you can try the mod "Custom Family Home" instead.

When using Hearthfire multiple adoptions with modded homes, the most common reason why the "Bless Home" spell states that the home isn't suitable is because of user error. Some mods such as This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA and Elysium Estate are setup by default for followers. To allow multiple adoptions, you must correctly enable multiple adoptions. To enable multiple adoptions in Jorrvaskr, you must have access to the Harbinger's Decisions board. This occurs after the Blood's Honor quest. To make Jorrvasker suitable for multiple adoptions, you must change the the Harbinger's bed to the bed with the noble chest, set up the children's room with or without the extra beds, and cast the Bless Home spell while in the Living Quarters. If you have done this correctly and the spell still states that the home isn't suitable, then try placing This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA.esp last in your load order and try again. If this works, then you have a load order or mod conflict issue, and you need to determine which mod caused it. If it is just a load order issue, then just place This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA.esp after that mod. If the change in load order will prevent that mod from working correctly, then you have a mod conflict and a patch is needed. If placing KASA last in the load order doesn't work, then try testing it with the save that is in the Miscellaneous files section. If that works, then the issue is with your save, and you will need to start new game or clean your save. If the save from the Miscellaneous files section doesn't work, then you likely have a Skyrim/Windows issue. Check to see if you have Skyrim install in a UAC protected folder such as "Program Files". Having apps installed in protected folders can be problematic if you are not very computer-literate. If you are computer-literate, then no further explanation is needed. If you aren't, then further explanation is beyond the scope of these notes. Note that This Is Jorrvaskr and KASA have only been tested on the English version of Skyrim SE 1.5.97 and later.

JK's Jorrvaskr can be use with This Is Jorrvaskr if you use JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch from JK's Guild HQ Interiors Patch Collection. The goal of This Is Jorrvaskr is to make Jorrvaskr a great player home while maintaining the vanilla aesthetics. It also adds visual enhancements, but you have to turn some options on and put up weapons and shields manually. It wasn't design to have a heavily modded look. Using JK's Jorrvaskr with This Is Jorrvaskr will give you that heavily modded look with the player home functionality of This Is Jorrvaskr. The number one issue mod users have with JK's Jorrvaskr is the missing door. This issue is not cause by a bug in the mod and never was. It is cause by not having the correct load order, not having the correct patches, or adding the mod after starting a new game. The JK's Jorrvaskr - Persistent Reference Fix will the fix the door issue if you are adding the mod midplaythrough, but it must be added at the same time that JK's Jorrvaskr is added. Everyone using JK's Jorrvaskr should use this patch because it is very difficult to have the correct load order and patches from the beginning. Using More Informative Console will help with finding the mod that is in the incorrect load order or that needs a patch. If you have the door issue, open the console and type TCL. Close the console and go to the door. Open the console and click on the door. More Informative Console will show which plugin last edited the door. If this plugin isn't JK's Jorrvaskr of a patch for JK's Jorrvaskr, then that plugin is in the wrong load order or needs a patch if it needs to load after JK's Jorrvaskr. To fix the door once you have the correct load order and necessary patches, do the following. First, go into the Underforge or a nearby interior cell that is not in Jorrvaskr and make a save. This is known as a clean saving (this save is not actually clean). Next, uncheck JK's Jorrvaskr and any dependant patches. Start the game, load that last save, and make another save (this save is the clean one). Next, enable JK's Jorrvaskr and all patches. Ensure that the JK's Jorrvaskr - Persistent Reference Fix is installed. Start the game and load the clean save. The door should now be in the correct location. There may be stuff on the floor, but they will be cleaned up when the cell resets. The JK's Jorrvaskr - Persistent Reference Fix is no longer needed and can now be uninstalled.

If you use JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch and notice that NPCs are moving strangely in the hallway between the twins' rooms, it's because of some bad triangles in the NavMesh in the JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch.esp plugin. If you know how to use the creation kit, you can fix it with the following instructions:

  • Open the creation kit and set JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch.esp as the active file
  • Double click WhiterunJorrvaskrBasement in the Cell View Window
  • Go into NavMesh Mode by pressing Ctrl+E
  • Click the top of the Render Window to make it active
  • Press Ctrl+F to bring up the Select Triangle menu
  • Click Check NavMesh
  • Click No in Found Warnings
  • Click Next Warnings twice until Triangle Index 30
  • Look for the vertex (small red square) in the center of the Render Window just north (above) of the long carpet
  • Press and hold the left mouse button on it and drag it left a little
  • Click Next Warnings until Triangle Index 227
  • Look for the top left vertex of the green triangle
  • Press and hold the left mouse button on it and drag it south a little
  • Finalize the NavMesh by clicking the red check mark on the NavMesh menu bar
  • Close the NavMesh menu bar and save
  • Exit the creation kit
  • Use SSEdit's Quick Auto Clean on JKs Jorrvaskr - This Is Jorrvaskr patch.esp

If you fast travel from Dustman's Cairn using Jorrvaskr's map marker during the Proving Honor quest, it will bypass the trigger for the initiation ceremony and you will not be able to continue. This issue also occurs with most Jorrvaskr and Skyforge map marker mods. To fix this, fast travel again using the Dragonsreach or Whiterun map marker and go to the back of Jorrvaskr to complete the ceremony. This issue has been fixed in version 2.200909. Also note that the map marker will be disabled during the Battle for Whiterun. In Skyrim AE, Vilkas might not be waiting in front of Jorrvaskr when you return. This is a Skyrim AE issue. Vilkas is correctly placed in front of Jorrvaskr by the trigger box, but he will sometimes immediately wander off somewhere. You can either go find him and talk to him or ignore him and go directly to the backyard to continue the quest.

The Tamriel World map markers are meant for use with Open Cities Skyrim. Skyrim can cause a glitch in which both the Tamriel World and Whiterun World Jorrvaskr map markers appear at the same time. This can occur when references from both worlds are rendered at the same time. When this occurs, you will see low resolution LODs overlapping with the ground and with structures. If you notice this happening, quickly save and exit the game. Restart Skyrim and check for issues. If there are issues, discard the save and go back to an earlier save. If you noticed this too late and don't want to lose your progress, you can simply disable the map marker and switch to the other map marker. This is not recommended, however, because the map marker may not be the only thing that got corrupted. A workaround to avoid this double map marker issue has been implemented in version 2.210304. If you fast travel using the Tamriel World map markers without Open Cities Skyrim, you will end up underground. If you use Open Cities, you should disable the regular landmark or lodge map marker and enable the Tamriel world version instead. Also, you may notice NPCs going towards the watchtower and disappearing instead of going on the tower. This is normal behavior with Open Cities. Both mods placed doors near there.

When using the Map Portal to travel to Whiterun's exterior with a follower, the follower may not use the portal and take the long way instead. This is a vanilla limitation. This occurs because the follower chose to use one of the other doors instead. If you don't want to wait for your follower, simply fast travel to Whiterun Stables after using the Map Portal. If you are using Open Cities, your follower may not show up unless you fast travel again or go through another load door. The follower mod you are using may also affect this. If this does occurs, it may be best to not use the Whiterun Map Portal if you are traveling with a follower. All other portals are fine. There shouldn't be any visitors going into your closet to use the portal. If there are, just put the Map Portal away when you are not using it. You can also try dimming the lights in the closet when your not there. Dimming the lights will enable the NavCut in the closet and prevent NPCs from going into the closet.

One of the goals of this mod is to make Jorrvaskr as good as any modded player home. While it may not look as pretty due to the goal to keep the original look and aesthetics, in terms of functionality, it should equal even the best player home mods. One of the drawbacks of Jorrvaskr is that you have to go through two load doors to get to the Living Quarters. While this isn't an issue for those with fast PCs, it can be too much of an inconvenience for those on slower PCs. The Map Portal was introduced to offset this inconvenience. Now with the introduction of Fast Entry, this should no longer be an issue. You can now enter Yourvaskr just as quickly as any other player home and exit even quicker. The Map Portal and Fast Entry are only available after the Blood's Honor quest. This is done to prevent players from bypassing the main hall and unknowingly breaking quests. It is very important that when you use these features, you do so with intelligence and common sense. Do not use Fast Entry or the Map Portal when leaving for or returning from a Companions related quest. Also avoid using the trapdoors as well, since most quest and most mods are expecting you to enter an exit through the regular doors. It should be fine to use them during or in-between a Companions related quest. Non-Companions related quests should not be affected in any way. When using Fast Entry or the Map Portal with followers, the followers may lag behind. Also be aware that the trapdoor that Fast Entry connects to will be locked during the Battle for Whiterun quest just like the main doors to prevent quest issues.

When doing Companions quests added by other mods, it is best to use the regular door instead of the trapdoors or other methods to enter or leave the living quarters. Leaving via the trapdoors may bypass trigger boxes from those mods and may cause quest related issues. While this is rare, it can occur. So far the only known occurrence of this is a conversation with Aela during the Blood's Honor quest that was added by Enhanced Skyrim Factions - The Companions Guild. Bypassing the conversation won't cause any issue, and you can still talk to her by walking up to her after using a trapdoor.

Note that because doors of Jorrvaskr will be locked during the Battle for Whiterun quest, you may wish to prepare by placing some necessities into the Express Crate so that you can access these items from outside Jorrvaskr.

The changeover for Jorrvaskr is automatically trigger by the disabling of the steel warhammer that is in the study. While rare, it is possible for a glitch to occur that causes the warhammer to reappear. If this happens, it will undo the changeover and prevent access to some features. A workaround to fix this issue has been implemented as of version 2.210304. To fix this, go to Ysgramor's Tomb and go next to the Flame of the Harbinger. This will re-trigger the changeover.

If you need to disable any weapon or shield display, you need to read and understand the procedures. If you are using USSEP, all displays will enable and disable properly. The displays in the trophy room will require you to exit and re-enter the cell. If you are NOT using USSEP, the displays will be properly disabled, but the activators will not. The weapons rack by the chopping block can be properly disable the first time. If it is re-enabled, it will then also require the following method to disable. To properly disable any weapon or shield display, you first need to put an item on the displays. This will remove the activators. Next, remove the displays using the Decisions Boards. Last, pick up all the items that were on display. If you disabled a display without disabling the activator and then try to use the display, the display item will end up floating in the air. Needless to say, it is much easier if you just use USSEP.

Items that are originally on display, should not be taken down and placed on other displays in the same cell. They will return to their original displays upon re-entering the cell and cause issues with the display scripts. You should NEVER drop them on the floor and leave the cell. If you wish to take them down and put up your own items, it is best to just stick the old items in a container. All the displays are setup properly, but you may still have issues if you're not using USSEP.

With racks that have side by side weapon displays, you may have to remove the larger weapon before you can interact with the display next to it. In those cases, place the smaller weapon first before placing the larger weapon, and remove the larger weapon before removing the smaller weapon. Some displays require you to have the weapon in your right hand. Some vertical display plaques can hold a weapon or a shield. If you are using USSEP, they can hold both. The shield activator is placed a little off to the side to avoid issues with weapons.

With the new Wuuthrad display, Wuuthrad will be properly positioned, properly flush, and properly lit in the display. Activating the candles by the display will put the display in a lock or unlock position. In the lock position, weapons will be flush in the display but will not be retrievable. The unlock position will accommodate larger weapons and will allow you to retrieve any weapon. While you can put any weapon on the display, some weapons may not be suitable for the display. This is true of other displays as well. You can not interact with the Wuuthrad display until the shards are gone. If you want to use the display while the shards are still there, hop onto the ledge in front of the display. This will put you inside the noncollidable bounding box and allow you to access the display and candles. This mod does not make any edits to the shards. If you use the display while they shards are still there, you may get some clipping.

This mod does not edit the the two weapons racks in the main hall. It instead places invisible weapons racks at the same spot. If a mod was to move the vanilla racks, there won't be any visual issues as long as you don't use the invisible racks. Version 2 allows you to disable the invisible racks. This will not disable the visible vanilla racks.

The four weapons plaques above the doors of the Circle members can be access after the changeover. They will also have random weapons if you have not been to the cell prior to adding the mod.

Be aware that mods that replaces the display meshes, display scripts, or even displays items can cause issues with the displays. This means that mods that replaces the racks, plaques, displays cases, display scripts, shields, and weapons can all possibly cause issues. If an item doesn't display properly on a display that's facing north or south, try it on a display that's facing east or west. If that doesn't work, put it in a display case. If that doesn't work, you'll have to use a mod such as Jaxonz Positioner to display the item. I've tested various display angles with various weapons. My conclusion is that while angles that are not 90 degrees and angles that are not whole angles are better, they still won't fix everything. Some items work fine at a certain 90 degree angle or a certain whole angle, but not at any other angle. This means that there isn't a solution that will work for every weapon. Weapons such as the woodcutter's axe may not work on any display without USSEP. The best solution currently for display issues is to use USSEP. If that doesn't work, use Jaxonz Positioner to display the item or just store it in a container. Another thing to be aware of is that weapons and shields on display can become bugged. A particular weapon or shield may not display properly on any display or become irretrievable, but another weapon or shield of the same BaseID will work just fine. In cases such as this, drop that item on the floor, exit the cell, save, and exit the game. Then restart the game and load the save. The item should now display properly. Displays can also become bugged. If the activator of a display doesn't show after you removed the display item, try using Fus Ro Dah on the display. You can also try Fus, Fus Ro, or punching the display, but Fus Ro Dah will have the greatest success.

The mannequins in this mod have been properly set up. They should not move around nor should they reset. They all have their individual Encounter Zone set to NoResetZone. This is a better method than setting the Encounter Zone of the cell. The problem with setting the cell's Encounter Zone is that any mod that edits the cell and loads later on can change the Encounter Zone back to its default. The individual Encounter Zone method does not have this issue. Another problem with cells that don't reset is that eventually everything that can havok will end up on the floor and remain there for the rest of the game. All the position of these items are store in your save and cause unnecessary bloat. When a cell resets, all this data is cleaned from your save and the only data that remains are from items that are persistent. When you don't want something to reset, whether it's an item, a mannequins, or a container, it's best to set the individual Encounter Zone instead. Be aware that when any mod that affects mannequins is added or removed, it can cause mannequins to temporarily not function correctly. This includes mods that alters the mannequin race, sex, or script. To fix the mannequins, you may have to empty its inventory or empty its inventory, exit the cell, and re-enter the cell. To avoid most issues with mannequins, it is highly recommended that USSEP be used. To anyone having issues setting up or using mannequins, there are a few things to keep in mind. Mannequins need a small island NavMesh to keep them from going on the main NavMesh. This island NavMesh must not overlap the main NavMesh. Mannequins should have their individual Encounter Zone set to NoResetZone. Angles on the z-axis should not be whole numbers, especially angles of 0, 90, 180, and 270. You should add a .1 to any whole angle to avoid the angle issue. For example, use angles of 0.1, 90.1, 180.1, or 270.1 instead. Some people have suggested adding a .0001 to whole numbers. However that doesn't always work. You will have greater success with .1 instead. This angle issue is also true of weapon displays, shield displays, and interactive trigger boxes. It took me years to figure out why some of the trigger boxes that I created worked fine and other didn't even when the Player Activation box was checked. The reason is that trigger boxes with all angles at 0.0 do not show up in game. It is best to avoid whole angles on any axis when setting up any display. Also, keep in mind that mannequins are NPCs. What keeps them from acting alive is the mannequin script. This script fires when you enter a cell. If you are already in a cell and you add or update a mod that adds or alters mannequins or the mannequin script, the script will not run which will cause the mannequins to come alive. When you activate them, the script will then run, but the mannequins will now be in a bodybuilder pose and their heads will not be in the default position. Be aware that mannequins can still have issues if your Skyrim mod list or settings are too demanding for your hardware. Mannequins are also more problematic in Skyrim AE. If issues occurs, the mannequins in the main hall will be affected first, and they may even float. All the other mannequins should be less problematic. The basement cell is not as demanding as the main hall. If you do have issues with mannequins, simply empty and restore their inventory. As of version 2.230720, all mannequins can be toggle off to avoid issues.

If you use the replacer version of Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul with USSEP, the Shield of Ysgramor can not be placed properly on any shield plaque, and the script will get messed up if you try to place it. This only occurs with the Shield of Ysgramor. All other shields will work fine. In regards to the Shield of Ysgramor, USSEP will only work properly with the wrplaqueshield01.nif it comes with. Even the vanilla wrplaqueshield01.nif will not work. When using the replacer version of Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul with USSEP, choose None for the Weapons Plaques option. When using the Mix-n-Match Plugin versions, place the Shield of Ysgramor only on vanilla shield plaque. A workaround is to disable the Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul mod, place the Shield of Ysgramor, and then re-enable the mod. Remember to first exit and re-enter the cell before interacting with the displays when adding or removing mods. If you are using the Mix-n-Match Plugin versions, shields should not be placed on a wall that has a painting. The shield plaque were made invisible specifically so that they won't cause clipping issues with mods that add paintings and decorations.

The amulet display in the Harbinger's bedroom was originally intended to allow you to put up your own amulets. However, the script that I thought was a vanilla script that allow that to happen was not a vanilla script. Unless there is a vanilla script that I overlooked, this is the best that can be done with the vanilla scripts. While it would be pretty easy to include the script, my goal is to keep the main mod asset-free. If you are using ElSopa - Glorious HD Amulets SE version 1.0, delete the file "zenitharamulet_go.nif" from the meshes subfolders. This mesh doesn't show in the game and will make it appears as though the Amulet of Zenithar Display isn't working. You can also use Cathedral Assets Optimizer on the mesh to get it to show.

If you have read the above paragraphs, you should understand by now that some mesh replacers can cause positioning issues. This is not just limited to weapons and armor, but includes all meshes. For example, Snowberries by Mari will cause snowberries to not be properly centered in the planters and some items from High Poly Project will also cause positioning issues. These issues are not compatibility issues, but are issues with the meshes themselves.

The way to gain access to the cavern has been changed and the trapdoor has been relocated from version one. Originally, the idea was that once the player joined and claimed a bed access would be granted. Unfortunately, you have to claim a bed again every time the mod gets updated. Not only was this tedious, but it didn't make sense for the Harbinger to be claiming a welp's bed. Cavern and Skyrim Sewers trapdoor restrictions have been removed to avoid confusion and to also allow users to access the Cavern Decisions Board without having to join the Companions.

The six beds in the community sleeping quarter, the six optional loft beds, and the 16 beds in the guest quarter added by this mod do not have any ownership. This is so that NPCs and followers that are not in the Companions faction from other mods can use them. Two of the beds can be claimed. One is on the northeast corner and the other is on the southeast corner. Claim the bed of your choice by activating the note on the end table by the bed. Claiming a bed sets the ownership of the bed to the player so that no NPC will use the bed. Each bed can be claim/relinquish with its own note. You should relinquish the beds when you move out of the community sleeping quarters to allow NPCs to use them. The guest quarter does not have any idles or usable chairs by default. This is to keep NPCs in the main living areas where they can be seen rather than hidden in the bedrooms. The idles and chairs can be enable using the Cavern Decisions Board. NPCs will occasionally sleep in one of the free beds rather than their own beds. This is normal behaviour. In some cases, it is due to the beds close proximity to the NPC's editor location. In other cases, it is due to the randomness of the NPC's AI package.

Some features of this mod require some common sense on the mod user's part. Only enable one bed in Skjor's room. Build the loft before adding the bed or lounge options. Do not enable both those options at the same time. Do not disable the loft with either of those options enabled. Do not enable the back trees and Talos statues at the same time. Setup the children's room before adding beds 3 and 4 and beds 5 and 6. If removing the children's room, also remove the beds. Disable any feature that conflicts with other mods. Do not enable any feature that obviously conflicts. If you want to use these features with a conflicting mod, you will have to create a patch for that mod. Do not use the Harbinger-owned containers in the Harbinger's quarters or take the Harbinger Master Key before becoming the Harbinger.

The Harbinger Master Key will appear on a table to the right of the Harbinger's bed after the Blood's Honor quest.

This mod has been cleverly designed to be compatible with Enhanced Lights and FX without the need for a patch. However, it does require the player to use activators to disable and enable objects in-game. First, use the Cavern Decisions board to block off the lounge area. This will prevent the wall sconce candle from floating. Second, activate the chandelier in the kitchen to dim it. Third, activate the marker underneath the shelf on the north side of the group sleeping quarter to restore the table. Fourth, activate the chandelier by the hallway benches to remove it. Last, dim the chandelier in the study by activating it. Light flickering can still occur when using ELFX because ELFX will cause this on its own.

If you want to use This Is Jorrvaskr with a lighting mod that isn't compatible or fully compatible or if you want to remove the changes made by the lighting mod, the easiest way is to use SSEEdit to delete the cell "WhiterunJorrvaskrBasement" from the lighting mod. The other cells should not have any conflicts. The lighting of This Is Jorrvaskr has already been tweaked and optimized for best visuals and performance. Any further edits by lighting mods will likely only degrade the lighting. The only thing that you may want to do is to load an imagespace enhancer after This Is Jorrvaskr. The SSEEdit location for WhiterunJorrvaskrBasement is Cell>Block 2>Sub-Block 6>0007947A.

All the storage added by the main mod are safe except for the food sack in the jail. Vanilla storage that were not safe remain so since there are already plenty of safe storage. Most of the containers in the Harbinger quarters are safe to use once you become the Harbinger. The only containers that are not safe in the Harbinger quarters are the barrel in the study and the chest atop the cupboard in the bedroom. Allowing the barrel to respawn  gives the impression that Tilma is restocking the barrel. The chest appears to be a boss chest for Jorrvaskr and thus was left alone. Simply think of the chest as your share of Jorrvaskr's profits. Anything that you don't keep, Tilma will sell for mead money.

Remove vanilla items from bookshelves before using them or you'll have clipping. All items in functional bookshelves have been set to not respawn. It it best to remove books by activating the bookshelves rather than taking the books directly. You can put other stuff in the bookshelves besides books by using Unlimited Bookshelves or Put anything in the Bookshelves. You can also use Jaxonz Positioner, Dylbill's Positioner, or Decorator Helper with or without these mods to do the same thing. If you do use Unlimited Bookshelves or Put anything in the Bookshelves, there are a few things to be aware of. Most importantly, ALWAYS remove items by activating the bookshelves rather than taking the items directly. The items display on the shelf are not the original items which are still in the container attached to the bookshelf. While some may be tempted to use the bookshelf to cheat and duplicate items, these duplicates are very buggy. They won't show on displays or mannequins and may cause other issues. The other thing to be aware of is that the headboard bookshelf in the Harbinger's bedroom is unconventional. If you are not using those mods, you can put five books in the headboard. If you are using those mods, you should only put in one book or nothing at all.

Those who are in the Thieves Guild or who plan on joining should not enable the Gold Bath Decor option. While it won't cause any issues, it will diminish the experience. This option was provided because most honorable warrior types won't ever join the Thieves Guild and would never get to see any of these items.

The trophy room was meant to be a small surprise for those who downloaded the mod early. In version 2, it's twice as large and more interactive. You can put up chandeliers to light the room by grabbing the torch. This will also enable the rest of the idles in the room, and NPCs will visit the room more often. The trophy bases in the east side are full, but you can still put up your own trophies on the bases in the west side. On this side, there are four large bases and six small bases. This arrangement was designed to allow you to display every trophy that's worth displaying. If you use USSEP, there will be two additional variations for the large trophy base that can be displayed. In this case, you can switch the two small bases that are in the middle into large bases. This will give you an arrangement of six large bases and four small bases. This will allow every trophy to be displayed except for the cow and the goat. To switch the bases, activate the small dark diamond at the front top of the bases. The four large bases also have diamond shape activators, but these are meant to change the direction that the trophy is facing. You should save before placing any trophy as this cannot be undone. Do not switch trophy bases after a trophy has already been placed.

This mod only makes minimal changes to the Circle members' rooms. The only edits were to Skjor's bed and chest, a few light bulbs, some invisible beds, and some weapons plaques above the doors. If you have issues in these areas, it's not likely from this mod. The reason for not overhauling these areas is that the purpose of this mod is to overhaul the living space of the player. The rooms of the Circle members are not really part of that unless you marry one of them. The light bulbs were edited to fix light flickering issues. Skjor's bed and chest were edited so that the room would not go to waste for the rest of the game. The reason for not overhauling the entire room is allow for other mods to do so. Overhauls of the Circle members' rooms are better left for a Companions overhaul mod. One of the best idea would be to have Njada promoted and take over Skjor's room. This can be done while Kodlak is still Harbinger and he could oversee the initiation ceremony. There should be enough voiced dialogue to do this. While this would be great if ever such a mod were to be created, it is outside the scope of this mod. What this mod can do is not to hinder those type of mods by making unnecessary edit to areas that it doesn't need to.

Most follower mods that add followers to Jorrvaskr do not give them a full AI package. These followers simply move about in the cell, do not sleep, and do not go anywhere else. This can be remedied by using My Home is Your Home to set their home, sleep, and work areas. This will greatly improve the immersion and atmosphere in Jorrvaskr. When using My Home is Your Home, it is recommended that you make the main hall the home of your follower. Then take the follower next to the bed you want the follower to use and set that as the sleep area. Last, take the follower out to the back yard and set that as the work area. The guard option can cause unwanted behavior, so use caution or avoid it altogether. If you do want to set the guard area, you should set it to the Living Quarters as it is the most likely to not cause any issues. This Is Jorrvaskr has a maximum of 32 free beds for followers. There are 16 beds in the guest quarter, nine free beds in the group sleeping quarter (the other five beds are used), six beds in the loft, and one more bed in Skjor's old room. This means you can comfortably add 32 followers to Jorrvaskr. Although it is possible to add more followers by having them sleep in shifts, it isn't recommended. Jorrvaskr's hallways aren't large enough to house that many NPC's without congestion. Even 32 followers can be an issue if you don't properly divide them between the two interior cells. The exterior cells with the deck option should be fine.

If you are one of those people who wonders about why there would be silverware in Jorrvaskr, here is an explanation. Elder Scrolls lore never specified whether silver is harmful to werewolves on touch or if it is only harmful when in contact with their blood. Keep in mind that Elder Scrolls lore does not necessarily have to be in agreement with general lore. Since Bethesda included silverware in Jorrvaskr and since wearing silver jewelry doesn't cause harm to werewolf characters, it is more likely that silver is not harmful on touch. Whether you agree with this or not is irrelevant. The fact is that silver can easily be tinned to make it harmless. The Companions have the best blacksmith in Skyrim. He knows their secret. It's safe to say that the silverware in Jorrvaskr will not cause harm to anyone that uses them.

If you are wondering why there would be enchanting and alchemy stations in the Harbinger's quarters, it's because Kodlak was secretly researching a cure. Table top versions were chosen because Kodlak was not a master enchanter or master alchemist so he didn't need a standard Arcane Enchanter or Alchemy Lab. Also, it would have been difficult to try a sneak one of those in without anyone noticing. As for why there aren't any other crafting stations, it's because the Skyforge is right outside, there isn't any proper place to put them inside Jorrvaskr, and their inclusion wouldn't make any sense. Also, Jorrvaskr is a shared living space and not a private home. The person that's pounding and hammering on a crafting station while others are trying to sleep or relax is likely to get an arrow in the knee. Newer versions of This Is Jorrvaskr have a storage room in the cavern that can be converted into a crafting room.

If you have a Do Not Delete Chest clipping with the enchanter inside the walk-in closet, then you likely have a mod with dirty edits loaded after This Is Jorrvaskr. You can use More Informative Console to find out which mod it is and load This Is Jorrvaskr after that mod. However it is best to clean or not use such a mod to begin with. If You have a floating enchanter in the Harbinger's bedroom, it's likely from Sleep in Their Bed - The Companions Deluxe Edition. Replace that mod with This Is Jorrvaskr - KASA which provides similar features.

This mod is highly optimized, and you should get great performance even on a weaker system. However, there are some performance related things to be aware of. Putting too many items in a container can cause slow downs when using the container. Putting too many NPCs in a cell will cause slowdowns and traffic issues. Using high resolution textures and high polygon meshes can reduce performance. This will come into play when putting a lot of items on display. Having a lot of scripts running in the background can reduce performance. One poorly written script can create a greater performance loss than a lot of well written scripts. Lights that cast shadows will have a greater performance hit than lights with no shadow. Using Enhanced Lights and FX with the "Improved Chandeliers (Recommended)" option from Static Mesh Improvement Mod will reduce performance. When using those two mods together, choose the "Improved Chandeliers No 3D Chains" option or use a patch that replaces the shadow casting lights from Enhanced Lights and FX. Mods that remove the room bounds in Jorrvaskr's Living Quarters will reduce performance. Unnecessary Windows apps running in the background can reduce performance. Running Skyrim in borderless window mode will have greater performance than in full-screen mode. This is counter-intuitive, but it is likely that Windows can provide a better gaming environment for Skyrim than it can provide for itself in full-screen mode. Overall, the performance that you get will be determined by your PC's hardware and the mods that you are using.

There are a lot of confusion about esl and mod limits, so here is a brief summary.
There are a total of 256 slots in the game. This is the case with Morrowind and Oblivion as well. Of the 256 slots, one is reserved for the ess file. This leaves 255 slots for esm/esp files. 255 is the esm/esp limit, not the mod limit. Some mods do not take up any slots. The five official masters are part of the game and shouldn't be consider mods. Therefore, the esm/esp mod limit is actually 250. It has often been stated that esl and esl flagged esp files do not take up a slot. That is incorrect. Using one or more esl or esl flagged esp file will reduce the 255 esm/esp slot limit to 254.

Porting to console or Skyrim LE will not be considered until it is in a final state. If you wish to use the current mod in Skyrim LE, you do so at your own risk. Understand that there are some record and sub-record differences between Skyrim LE and Skyrim SE. While simply resaving the mod in the 32-bit Creation Kit may give you a working version, it did not fully work as intended during tests. Most likely, a fully working version would require recreating the mod from scratch using the 32-bit Creation Kit. If you do decide to try this in LE, feel free to post your findings. However, don't ask for or expect any support.

These notes will be updated as needed, so it is in your best interest to reread this section occasionally. If You didn't get a +10 to your intelligence after reading all of this, you may be under some resist magicaka effect, or it may be that making you more intelligent is beyond my skill level. (FYI, dancing along to "Never Gonna Give You Up" on a daily basis can give a +10 to your health. For maximum benefit, you should sing along as well. Don't do it at work though. Management won't to like it very much.)
