This is the main file for Castle Volkihar Redux. It includes a readme for installation a .bsa and a .esp.

Update July, 15, 2:33pm PST
Fixed error;
DefaultSandboxEditorLocation1024NoConv form id = 0010f587 was corrupted. Used details ignore. Now no mass spawns can happen if you re-synch and have castle volkihar last in your load list.

Instructions: delete the old cleaner_castlevolkihar3.bsa & cleaner_castlevolkihar3.esp and replace with this new file.

It's always some damn thing.

For some reason the last time I uploaded it didnt work, the file is not showing up. So I am uploading again here as there is no option to edit my existing profile for this mod anywhere I could find.

I am not in love with this site's mod hosting upload tools to say the least.

First off, this is a fantastic mod. Plenty of walk throughs to get you adjusted to the sheer size of it as well as interactive. While there is plenty of powerful loot, there are challenging quests as well. I'd say 95% awesome!

That being said, I wasn't sure if you were open to constructive criticism or how we make you aware of 'quirk' with it but the South Tower where you can place Elder Scrolls, the Dragon Scroll is not detected.

Otherwise, that has been the only difficulty I've had. I'd say this is 9.0-9.5 out of 10!

Thank you for the great mod.

This Mod is great, I highly recommend it.

I have found a couple of bugs (two walls missing, no big deal) and couldn't place the Dragon Scroll although I was carrying it. Besides that, 10/10.

Well done, Sir!

Skyrim is a buggy game when you start adding mods. You in effect are downloading some guy who has no idea wtf he's destroying. They openened up their source code to be ruined basically.

It is up to the user to be able to clean his skyrim or computer when doing this

I built a FAQ exactly for this purpose. To help all my subscribers on steam. You don't have to download it from steam to use the FAQ:

This mod is bug free. If you are having issues such as missing walls (caused by your video card being too weak to draw all the stuff I put in) or the dragon scrolls not being placeable, well that is addressed in the FAQ too.

Absolutely awesome mod.
Thank you for your time and effort that was put into creating this piece of smooth flowing art.
Too turn a area that is dead after the original quest is finished into something that far outshines anything that the host game produces is a credit to your ability and forward thinking.
All the retexturing works brilliantly along with a thousand and one good ideas be they hidden areas, secret passageways, items or npc's to interact with or quest's to complete.
Of the 13GB of mods that I run I would rate this as No1
Kudos to you Sir I am very impressed

Fixed a major issue with animal spawns at the docks of Castle Volkihar when installing this mod.

Please delete the old version of this mod in your data folder. Delete "cleaner_castlevolkihar3.bsa" and "cleaner_castlevolkihar3.esp"
The new updated file has the same name so you can just drop it in data and say copy over it.

Error fixed:
DefaultSandboxEditorLocation1024NoConv form id = 0010f587 is now ignored through CK details which rolls it back to the vanilla default. The corrupted one sent all animals to pac in the shipyard.

Yes I feel like an idiot. Yes skyrim modding is a big learning curve as is life. I apologize for not being able to figure this out sooner.
