Skyrim: Next mod

Here's some before-and-after shots from the first stage of my next mod (utility mod, adds new types of weapon stands, containers, some fixes, and more).

In vanilla Skyrim, there are just some weapons you don't want to put on a shield/weapon plaque. Basically anything that's not symmetrical except for battleaxes, which they managed to get right.

Skyrim: Q's Windhelm Basement

Windhelm's Hjerim is a fine estate, but worthy of The Dragonborn?

The true Dovahkiin needs a place to display his prizes, treasures, trophies, and spoils of war. This mod adds the option to purchase a basement addition to the house in Windhelm. Within it you'll find 10 new mannequins, display cases of assorted sizes, wall plaques, and a dozen weapon racks. In the corner are 4 tall bookshelves, with a knapsack, satchel, and locked safe. Extra weapons and armor can be stored in various chests. A full smithing chamber is provided, complete with smelter and component storage.

Along the back wall are plaques for your symbols of rank: a wall plaque for each Hold which can grant the title of Thane. Each plaque is adorned with a shield to indicate the source of the weapon.

The cases and ranks and mannequins all come empty, waiting for you to fill them with your story.

Once the mod is installed, talk to the steward of Windhelm. The basement is another decoration option you can purchase. When you do, the ladder down will be unlocked.

Meat Part 3
Sunday brunch was a pair of chicken parm sandwiches made from chicken that had been soaking a full day in brine. Except for a single salty bite that suggested I could have washed the breast a little more thoroughly, it was the best chicken I've cooked myself. Sadly I did not have any blocks of whole milk mozz cheese, so I used a slice of provolone as the base and added shredded mozzarella and shredded parmesan.

Meat Part 2
For dinner, a New York strip steak pan broiled in a dollop of bacon fat with salt and ground garlic. The marinade taste was a tad too strong though, so either I should not have let it marinade too long or I should have watered it down some. Also I forgot to set a second timer and let the 2nd side cook a little too long. But still delicious.
