Q: How do I install with Nexus Mod Manager?

Download it from the Nexus like any other mod!


Mod load order is advised to be low as this mod adds locations to existing ones. (Solitude market specifically)

Q: I’m stuck at the Ball loading screen it’s frozen.

A: If you are getting infinite loading screens going to the Ball or any other part of the mod then the problem is not the mod itself it is a problem with your Skyrim hanging on loading resources. This mod has some extra textures and meshes that can prove to be too much for your installation if you run other mods. This is a known problem with Skyrim and it’s memory-handling. Fear not though – there is a solution if you read on!

1st Solution: Download this mod


2nd Solution: Is to download SKSE and turn on the memory patch.

Follow these instructions for installation:

Q: Bishop isn’t following me!

A: Try dismissing your other followers
hit your “`” key to bring up the console commands then type
set playerfollowercount to <0>

Q: I clicked (Hug Bishop) /Bishop hugged me.  Now he’s dead / bleeding.

A: This apparently is a bug in Vanilla Skyrim caused by the “hug” animation. If the character you’re hugging should have “died” at any point (ex: they are ‘essential’ and fall in battle) the hug animation will for some reason either kill them, make them bleed or generally cut off conversation until you move to a new cell. (Which would explain why ‘new’ characters – where Bishop hasn’t fallen in battle yet – would not have a problem.)
