fMagnetism combat settings

Recommended Posts

I killed my follower with an arrow from behind but the follower wasn't in my aiming reticule but when I searched the topic I found some mention of the fMagnetisms but not what they do and if they should all be set to 0.  BethINI settings show I have a couple set to 0 but not all.  If there is another reason beyond fMagnetism please do tell.  The follower was to the right of the aiming reticule.  I actually killed 2 followers this way and one was in a cave so I don't think there was a wind variable that could be the cause, but both were killed to the right of where I was aiming.

The aiming reticle is not always accurate. Best thing is to save often so if you accidentally kill your follower you can reload the save and try again. Also best to avoid ranged combat nearby a follower.

Hmm.  I'd prefer to play without saves other than the autosave, but if the aiming isn't accurate this is a problem that I can't chalk up as my bad aim and accept my terrible idea to trying to shoot near my follower.  I submitted a ticket on it to Bethesda but the response was to submit again to the feedback department.  How often did the game get updates over the years for bugs?  I don't like that they're shutting down the forum and moving to Discord only, but maybe Discord is better than I'm believing.

The BethINI tweaks has two of the fMagnetism settings to 0 but not the others.  I found:

Steam Community :: Guide :: Useful Ini Tweaks

in which all fMagnetism tweaks are set to 0 but I've found no explanations for what each is.

Or by not accurate, you mean there is another factor than fMagnetism settings?

      Hey all!
      Did my complete STEP installment. I have two issues. The first is that there is a shadow following my character, at least at evening hours, around 6:30 pm ingame as can be seen on the screenshot. The sun is over the Falkreath hold, when I walk close, the edge of the shadow follows at the same distance it is in the screenshot. Meaning I can only see the sun, I can't be in the sun. This seems to be specific to the area surounding Falkreath however. The issue seems to be tied to something that generates or renders at approximately the distance of the shadow seen in the screenshot, because a similar, but much less visible effect appears when walking around other places such as around Riverwood or the plains of Whiterun. 
      The other is no dual sheathe. 
      I don't know what could've caused this, did the STEP setup by the letter, including Nemesis, so I'm thinking it might be one of the few mods I installed outside of STEP.
      These mods are
      Civil War Overhaul
      Expanded Towns and Cities
      Vigilant and the accompanied hi-res textures for the areas made for that
      Apocalypse + Vokrii compatibility
      Cloaks of Skyrim + CCOR compatibility patch
      While my knowledge is quite limited on the subject, the only thing I'm thinking that perhaps Cloaks of Skyrim could mess with the dual sheath. I haven't troubleshooted yet by trying to turn them off, I will do so tomorrow - merely wanted to put this out there, in case someone had experienced this themselves and immediately know the issue.
      Hoping for help!

      I would like to remove WACCF from conflict resolution patch, but I'm new to xEdit. Is it enough that I uncheck it in CR patch installer? STEP guide says that "a minor subset of this mod's changes are forced by the Step patches". Could anyone point me at which records to remove? Thanks in advance

      Title says it all, couldn't find a thread on it, and it's not mentioned in the guide. I'm leaning towards renaming it?
