About this mod

A small mod aiming to expand on the number of treasure maps found within the game. New treasure chests are added to recognizable spots all across Skyrim, accompanied by a location where the new maps can be found - either vanilla or brand new dungeons.

After some years of absence I finally returned to this mod to find it vastly more popular than when I last checked on it, and also some quite pressing issues, so I decided to fix them. It should no longer be necessary to use third party bug fixes with the latest version (However, big thanks to those contributors!)

I don't know about you, but I love a real adventure, and some fine loot to go with it! I really enjoyed the sense of adventure the treasure maps brought to Skyrim, and I decided to add some more of them.

Treasure Hunter for SSE is a small mod aiming to expand on the already great treasure map mechanic introduced by the game. I have tried to keep the maps and dungeons as lore friendly as possible. Even though I really suck at drawing, I still set out on this mission, and hey, they didn't turn out that bad if I do say so myself - for a hastily scribbled map at least.


What this mod currently adds:

- 7 brand new and unique treasure maps, scattered all across Skyrim
- 3 unique unmarked locations, handplaced into the world, each with their own story to tell
- 3 brand new and unique dungeons, with leveled enemies, and of course, LOOT!
- An entirely new progressive perk to go along with the treasure maps; the more maps you find, the more likely you are to find more gold in containers. Thanks to user BlutoBlutarsky for the suggestion! (NOTE: This is not an actual perk, but rather an active effect added to the PC)

Map and chest locations are provided below for troubleshooting or if you simply wish to "cheat".

Bugs and Compatibility

Version 1.2 fixed all deleted navmeshes, removed ITM records and fixed some additional small bugs. I would like to extend my thanks to all contributors who have provided fixes and patches to this mod, and I have taken much inspiration from them when implementing these fixes.

This mod contains few objects, but they are very much spread out on the map. I've tried to put the chests and dungeons where other mods are the least likely to conflict, but there may still be considerable risk of conflict with a large mod list.

I have really appreciated the extensive bug reports from the community, and encourage you to file further reports as issues are found.
