Pegasus Estate revived

The Story

This very mod is why I started modding. Once upon a time I asked on the Planet Elder Scrolls forums (did I mention it was an awful long time ago?) for a house with employees that do things for me, that look like they are doing things and a place to display / store everything. The most important reply I got was: Your best bet is to make the house yourself.
I started by... butchering is the word, my favourite house mods (typically Korana's) by playing Frankenstein, putting bits of mods together. Needless to say the results were... bad, not only was the game very unstable but I had no idea why things worked in the original mods but not in mine.
More than 10 years later, I've learnt things and Pegasus Estate is almost everything I wanted. It is still in beta but is mostly playable.
I have resurrected an old playlist of showcases a few years old, it shows the estate without the staff. See it all here

Or feast your eyes on all the (old) screenshots.

And now, brace yourself for the full description of... everything!

What to expect:

Quests to become the proud owner of the Estate

  • Non-linear Quests to build or improve the house (may require specific staff)
  • Non-linear Quests to hire staff and improve their services (may require specific rooms)

Warning: the house is packed with nice features but no loot at all. If you want a money drain, you found it.
