I'm Walkin' Here (by Fudgyduff)

SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.

QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.

The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:

Quote

Prevents NPCs from pushing you while YOU'RE WALKIN' 'ERE and having a chat with your friends :)

What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.

The following NPCs and situations are addressed:

  • Disables collision while the player is in dialogue.
  • Disables collision between the player and their allies.
  • Disables collision between the player and their summons.
  • Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons.

Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).

If it's disabling collision, wouldn't that mean the NPCs walking through anything and everything that is in their path?

Collision is disabled only between you (the player) and the related NPCs. You and the affected NPCs continue to collide with everything else as usual, including affected NPCs among themselves (so if they're 2 followers stuck in a corridor for example, they remain stuck, but you can walk through them). And unaffected NPCs are not affected at all :)

Another example: you're in a conversation with an NPC, let's say Balgruuf. Any other NPC walking into you won't push you, they'll go through you, but the same NPC walking into Balgruuf will push him.

I don't know how the mod works its magic but it works quite well.

I don't play with followers typically in Skyrim, but this sounds useful for those who do, but probably more so for those who want to abuse the Ritual Stone.

I'd call this a 'fix' almost. Ideally, the damn chars wouldn't bump into other chars at all, but I guess the game/navmesh isn't smart enough for that.

No, the game isn't intelligence enough for that and I'm tempted to categorize this as a "fix" as well. I've been using some followers from Interesting NPCs and I found a couple of scenarios really aggravating: take a few steps down a narrow corridor and turn around to come back out but the path is blocked by a follower; in an active conversation and suddenly get shoved out of the scene by a follower. Fortunately it hasn't happened while I'm trying to take a long shot from the edge of a cliff or mountain yet.

Even if you play without followers, there are a few quests where the player is forcefully given a follower by the game, and this follower will stick with them everywhere until the quest is completed. Notably one especially annoying NPC whose name begins with S. She has a unique follower AI package which lets her sandbox and wander instead of staying put while the player is not in combat. For some reason she seems to like walking to and from the player a lot, bumping into the player on the way.

In conversation mode, collision is disabled between the player and any NPC, not just followers.

Playing in 1st-person and not seeing the player's body I don't mind the 'pass through' effect too much with this mod, but I reckon it may look strange and immersion-breaking in 3rd-person.

This is very true, and I agree this mod sounds beneficial.

I've been playing with this mod for almost a week. No issues that I can notice. This mod was great for a quest that includes two temporary followers. Mousetick mentioned this and I agree with the effectiveness of the fix. When the followers were in the way within small corridors and doors, I was no longer screaming at my monitor lol. My player character was able to pass through them and vice versa with ease. Very convenient.

The common aggravation of being run into by npcs when in conversation has not happened since installation so I cannot verify this change. 

I have been playing with summons and it is nice to just move through them after combat.

I use this mainly for disabling follower collision they have an annoying habit of blocking doorways and narrow passageways they're not intelligent enough to move out of your way if you want to turn around/back. I'm not sure why bethesda/creation engine is so lacking in this regard I played games 15 years ago that had npc's that would move out of your way (and even apologise for it)

There was another mod Disable Follower Collision by Felisky384 that I was using before but this covers more than just follower collision and also that hasn't been updated for AE/1.6.x.x so I dropped it. No issues so far.

      Following a clean re-install of Skyrim AE, I've been reinstalling the Step Guide and had intended to include everything. Because of this I have installed the ENB options in all the steps prior to Post Processing. Now I'm not so sure I want to install/run an ENB with this build. Is it safe to jump to Step 05 or do I need to remove and reinstall the mods with the Post Processing (blue) flag? I am getting between 91-115 FPS in Riften with my new 144 Hz monitor.

      Hi! I have been trying to mod my Skyrim game for a couple of days now and I have been meticulosly following the STEP Skyrim Special Editio Guidelines and I have finally arrived to step 6.24.2. I already finished sorting the plugins with LOOT and already finished the standar cleaning procedures. Now I have to proceed with the performance benchmark which requires to launch the game for the first time after downloading and installing all the mods. Now here is the problem: When launching Skyrim, it will open, it shows the logo and a little loading animation on the bottom right, and it closes itself after a couple of seconds -No error pop ups or anything. I am pretty new when it comes to modding and I have no idea of what could be causing this problem, and I would love to fix this instead of uninstalling everything and retrying in a couple of months.
      Thank a lot beforehand!

      Requirements
      DynDOLOD Standalone 3.00 Alpha-92 (Nexus SE) (Nexus LE) (Mega) DynDOLOD Resources 3.00 Alpha-21 (Mega) for Skyrim/Enderal or DynDOLOD Resources SE 3.00 Alpha-27 (Mega) for Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/Enderal SE Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 For dynamic LOD: SKSE, SKSE64, SKSEVR and PapyrusUtil, PapyrusUtil SE, PapyrusUtil VR  or DynDOLOD DLL For grass LOD: A warm precache from No Grass In Objects. See next post for details. For Majestic Mountains: Majestic Mountains LOD Pack for DynDOLOD 3. Obviously do not install LOD meshes from older versions made for DynDOLOD 2.x.  
      Installation
      Install the requirements as usual. Install the Core Files from either DynDOLOD Resources or DynDOLOD Resources SE depending on the used game version. Typically overwrite any files or refer to Load/Overwrite Orders. Install other options as desired. Unpack the DynDOLOD Standalone archive into a new empty 'DynDOLOD' directory that is outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', User, Documents, Desktop, Download and also not in SteamApps, game or any mod manager folders. If the tools are started without setting a Game Mode with a command line argument (-tes5 for Skyrim, -sse for Skyrim Special Edition etc.), a message window will prompt for the desired Game Mode. Since TexGen now generates billboards do not install any 3rd party billboards.
      LOD Generation
      Use TexGen to generate object LOD textures and tree/grass LOD billboards into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod. Use DynDOLOD to generate object LOD (includes grass LOD if enabled), tree and optional dynamic LOD into a dedicated output folder and then install as a mod.  
      Major Feature Changes
      Generate high quality tree/grass LOD billboards with TexGen. No need to install any billboards. Optional ultra tree LOD is now a checkbox - remember to update the tree mesh rule as desired. Optional billboard Grass LOD in object LOD Level 4. See next post for details. Generate some pre-rendered object LOD textures, including all cities. Optional generate an underside terrain mesh to block sun rays. Automatic texture replacements for stitched object LOD textures. Optional occlusion generation is now a checkbox and can generate Occlusion.esp in the same session, eliminating the step with xLODGen. Support for Seasons of Skyrim.
