    Awesome, keep up the great work! Curious though, how will the area for supporters only work, or at least how it will identify who's a supporter or not. Undecided

  • #46

    So far the dagger display cases have never worked right for me.  The cases open and close properly but there isn't an "activate" option.  Also, it would be nice with any closable display case for them to be propped up on an angle so that you can see the contents of the case without having to stand practically on top of the display.

  • #43

    This really is a fantastic Mod, Shawk.  I mean it...On behalf of all pack-rats, thanks!!   Quick question for you though; I don't know the dev constraints that these mods are under, but do you believe that future updates will still require emptying the hideout?  

    I'm sending you a donation later today for sure.

  • #44

    Thanks Dharpo.

    The only update that requires you to remove items is going from something below 0.3.5 to something above 0.3.5.

    I have released a 0.3.6, 0.3.7 and a 0.3.8 since and all of them do not require removal of items. 0.3.5 moved a lot of persistent items around so required the refresh. 

  • #45

    Great.  Thanks.  The only thing I can think to ask for is more Mannequins.  Cool


    Just left you a $15.00 donation.  Keep up the great work.

  • #41

    Wow... This  mod is really well made. I love the hideout its like an underground town! Its big! I've always wanted a smithing area in my "house". Good mod.

  • #40

    PS - it's look awesome. Dam you Shawkab - you got me addicted to this place despite the glitches.

  • #39 today I went into the Hideout. And it's reverted to 3.0 and everything is gone. All my stuff is gone.

    Zip nada nothing there? 

    Which makes sense because I removed everything and then installed 3.5. Its in that version.

    Everything was fine yesterday. Now it's the old 3. version and all my unique stuff is gone.

    1. So I've tried installing the 3.7 vesion over top - nope that didn't work either. Its still showing the 3 version - (did you rename stuff so it won't recognise anything?). From last night today something has changed and all my unique trophies and everything else is gone.

    2. So i did uninstalled on the curse client. Went back in, the hideout is still there as the oldversion, empty.

    3. Checked under Explorer I have both basement and hideout files - I've deleted both.

    4. I installed the 3.7 logged in - the game gave a message basically saying my apps have changed wont see the shit i had before - do I want to continue - I quit the game.

    5. I'll try installing the 3.5 version - but I'm guessing all my gear is gone. It's seems theres some of kind or rename that's stuffed everything up.

     6. Ok I so installed the 3.5 version, log in and it now says every save game i have is corrupted. If I can't get it to work, I just don't lose all my gear i love everything, I start at zero.... :(


    7. A FIX -Here's how I fixed this problem. I suspect that files got renamed - I think it must of  been called basement rather then hideout?  Anyway - for a while there every saved gamed was listed as corrupted on the menu. And I only was given an option to delete it. That was like level 58 toon, delete it all. I was thinking to change my pants.

    I deleted everything I could find in the data section that was either basement or hideout. I did a fresh install of 3.7.

    Logging in you get a message on any game you choose saying:

    "This save relies on content that is no longer present. Some objects may no longer be available. Continue loading? Yes No"

    I chose yes.  

    I entered the hideout through Proudspire, it's the new version 3.7 (and nice theres alchemy and enchanting right beside the smith) And my gear is there. PHEW - Fricken bloody Phew. 

    I think I'm going to remove the unique items until it's non beta - I can afford to loose crafted stuff, but dragon masks etc - nah. And my Wabberjack - I love my Wabberjack.

    That was good work on the Curse Client - the Read Me Note was alongside the name - makes it easier for people for the 3.5 version.

  • #34

    Just got this and looked around and its really cool, but the book shelfs don't seem to work.

  • #36

    There are 3 1/2 that work. look left as you go inside the right entrance to the Library.

  • #37

    ok, ill look for those next time i play

  • #33

    I must admit I like the older version of the hideout better. It's getting too big now, you have to run around from one spot to another to craft. Where before everything was close by. The room with the mannikins is a big empty room, where as before the mix of different armour on manekins, shields and weapons looked cool. And everything that you do repeatedly, smith, pot and chant was close too each other and to the house doorways.

  • #29


    I'm screwed. I use Curse Client, if you click the automatic update - its THEN you get to read the Read Notes AFTER you click. So you're screwed, you can't cancel because it gets rid of the install you have so you can't get remove any of your gear or anything. And you have no option but to install the new version because once you start the process it deletes the old install.

    Most in fact all experiences of updating mods - it's not an issue. This is the only mod that really you can't just click update. And I think a note should be on the front page giving that warning. Because its kind of unique. When you update mods you don't assume that everything will automatically deleted by putting in a new install - you know. There's got to be a better heads up then have the message after you start the process. I can't find the old version files at all.

    ....SOLUTION - A few hours later, luckily I didn't put the 3.5 install in. My 3 version was gone so I downloaded the 3 version from the old download files - went in and removed everything. Sigh - its gonna take a couple of hours to put back nice again. I'm going to install 3.5 now and see if it's okay.
