Valkyrja Castle Whiterun Player Home by JPitner and Stoaty6666

This home has been in the works for almost a year and a half, of course a break was taken for Fallout 4.  We wanted a home centered around a museum with plenty of space for displaying our spoils.  What started as small home near Solitude has grown into a huge castle near Whiterun’s Battle-Born Farm.
I have a few Valkyrja Outposts and one major home in Solitude that I have to convert/repair before uploading.

Some key features include:

•    Home is compatible with Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions by TMPhoenix
•    Display activators for almost all unique items that can be found in game
•    Display activators for vanilla weapons
•    Display activators for unique faction items. Note: Treasures acquired through Thieves Guild quests are automatically displayed so there is no need    to take them from the Thieves Guild headquarters.
•    Total of 79 mannequins
o    Main Home – 11 mannequins
o    Armory – 20 mannequins
o    Museum – 19 mannequins
o    Follower’s Quarters – 18 mannequins
o    Library - 11 mannequins
•    One exterior and three interior workshops
•    Three sturdy horses
•    Red and Black chainmail armor – male full set, female full set, female skimpy set and all are craftable
•    Two swords – craftable
•    3 custom textured Nordic bows – craftable
•    3 custom textured crossbow (plus enhanced versions) – craftable
•    Custom textured arrows and bolts for above bows and crossbows – craftable
•    Storage chest are linked between cells, drop something off in Light Armor container in Armory and pick it up in the Light Armor container in the Follower’s Quarters
•   5 Follower beds in main home and 6 in Follower Quarters
•   Beds, pools, and hot tubs have autostrip triggers - Player Room hot tub also has player autostrip.

And so much more

I will say that digging through CK for unique items opened my eyes to how many quests and side quests I have missed.  If you see an activator that you have no clue as to what it is, google it and you will find the associated quest and how to start it.  Gave me hours more on new gameplay.

Known issue – chest containers do not close after activation.  They will close when you activate them again.  Once I figure out how to fix this or find a static closed chest I will correct this.

Future plans:
•    Add displays with activators for vanilla head gear
•    Add vendors and trainers
•    Make versions of each Valkyrja home that share a common storage system that shares all containers between homes (Master file system already built and tested)

You can use any of the wood and stone textures here, a lot of them are just reworked Bethesda textures any way used in different areas. The Asatru textures, the shield textures, cloth textures, etc and meshes though belong to the authors in my credit list and you will need to check with them for permission. Probably best to ask me first to make sure.
