No Permanent Essentials

Recommended Posts



This is a rather neat mod. I got annoyed by the fact that in vanilla Skyrim I could hardly kill anyone, yet I was reluctant to simply install a "de-essentialize everyone" mod, because of all the problems those mods can create.


This mod is a neat compromise. NPCs remain essential up until the point the player completes their relevant quests. After that, they become killable.


Not only that, this mod actually unlocks some (minor) hidden content, namely dialogue that would not previously arise because it would require the death of an essential NPC.


I think this a good candidate for STEP, as its a fairly unintrusive feature that serves to make the game more immersive without (theoretically) breaking anything. The only problems I see arising is in the case of quest mods and such that might rely on certain NPCs remaining alive.

Only problem is there are conflicts with Even Better Quest Objectives - specifically, depending on load order, you'll either not get the improved objectives from EBQO, or No Permanent Essentials doesn't work for the quests both mods modify. A compatibility patch may be comming soon.

      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:
      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).

      I'm assuming Qudix will drop the Alpha from the title at some point. I have pre-emptively done so for this topic title. This mod adds various UI fixes and tweaks:
      AddItemMenu alternative (basically an explorer of the items for your list of plugins that can be then added to your inventory if desired if I understand it right) Stay at the System Page fix The ability to add/remove buttons from the main menu Remove the Creation Club banner.
