 - Description - 
Hjerim is a purchasable home located in the Valunstrad quarter of Windhelm next to the manors of Clan Cruel-Sea and Shatter-Shield. It originally belonged to Friga Shatter-Shield, a daughter of one of the most influential family in Windhelm which recently passed away, leaving the manor abandoned.

 - Acquisition -  

The house can be purchased from the Steward in Windhelm after completing the "Blood On The Ice" quest, I removed the condition that didn't allow you to purchase the house until after the Stormcloak victory so you're able to buy it like any other properties in Skyrim.

The furniture needs to be purchased from the Steward (like in the base game) and the Housecarl room will not be furnished until you become Thane of Windhelm and get the Housecarl that goes with the title.

Regarding the Blood On The Ice quest : I fixed the issue I had with the quest not starting, if the kicker is still bugged for you, you can try using the following console command to jump start the quest :

startquest MS11
 - Installation - 
- Make sure your version of HS Resources is up to date, if not, download and install the latest release, this is a mandatory requirement and you might be missing some items if you're using an outdated version. Make sure to track the mod as well so you get notified of any update.
- Use a mod manager software such as Vortex, install, enable the mod and voilà!
- Or drop the content of the archive into your "Skyrim Special Edition\Data" folder

The Loot auto-sort should take care of the rest, but if I'm a bit behind in committing the rules for the newly released mods or if you want to mess around your Load Order on your own it is recommended to load this mod fairly late in the LO to prevent any other mods to mess with visual elements of the cell, patches might be required in some cases but I will not be making them myself unless I'm personally using the mod.

Add-ons included in the optional files :

  • A Compatibility patch disabling LUX changes made to the cell edited by this mod.

 - Compatibility - 
I will list bellow some of the mods that have been reported as incompatible and requiring patching, I will not be making any patches myself, this list will only serve as a remainder for those of you that actually read the description before whining in the comment section, but let's face it, nobody does, and I don't even know why I'm writing this, thank god for copy / paste.

  • For those using ELFX you should use the "No Player Homes" option to disable the changes for the cell.

 - Disclaimer - 
The mod as well as the patches are ESL flagged. I will not be releasing variants or All-In-One versions of these mods since that will go against the "modular" philosophy behind them, letting you pick and choose which location you want to install and having multiple version of the same thing would quickly make this a nightmare to maintain.
