I recently started playing Skyrim again and I am using my save from years ago. Back then my foolish self decided to build some wings on the Falkreath house, Lakeside manor.

From reading other forums I understand I can disable Hearthfire to reset my build. I did this but my concern is that my wife Ysolda also vanished from my Solitude home when I did this.

I used console commands to place and try to marry her again but it didn't work. Is there a way to restart without losing Ysolda?

  • It may be a duplicate but none of the others I saw mentioned a missing wife Commented Jul 11, 2017 at 5:23
  • Can you try asking her to move back to her house before disabling Hearthfire? Hearthfire modifies the vanilla houses to include a child's bedroom so it's possible this link was also connected to your spouse. Commented Jul 11, 2017 at 8:21
  • I do have the chat option to move to her house, I believe its cause of the kids. She is to tangled up in the Hearthfire DLC. Commented Jul 11, 2017 at 23:22

Yes, it is possible. Namely with the (excessive) use of the console. I didn't check whether disabling and re-enabling the DLC removes your wife, but I very much assume so, so you will probably want this approach:

First you need to type

sqv byohhousefalkreath

This should show a lot of variables with IDs and 'enabled'/'disabled'. Those belong to specific rooms and items.

You can then use the command

prid <ID>

depending on whether you want to enable or disable it.

It can be very exhausting to search through the text-dump for the variable you want, but I wouldn't be aware of a proper list, so this will have to do.

In case you are interested: the command prid selects the specified ID and lets you issue commands especially for that ID.

  • It is indeed excessive, I wouldn't even know where to begin. Though it is viable I don't think ill be using it, thanks for the help. Commented Jul 11, 2017 at 23:51
