Wiseman303's Critter Fixes by wiseman303

From the author as he explains this mod the best:

 

In Skyrim walking into a butterfly or similar critter will stop you like hitting a solid wall. The Unofficial Patch Project Team fixed that problem in the Unofficial Skyrim and Dawnguard Patches, but the way they fixed it made the critters immune to projectiles. As an avid butterfly hunter in Skyrim this was unacceptable to me, so I redid the collision data in the .nif files. Now the player can pass through the critters while still allowing them to be hit by projectiles and melee attacks.

 

In addition to the flying critters affected by the unofficial patches, I made the same edits to the fish meshes, so you no longer get shoved around by pond fish or salmon while swimming or wading, but can still do some bow or fireball fishing if the mood strikes you. The dead fish even bob to the surface for easy collecting. While dynamite (fireball) fishing to test the collision effects on fish, I noticed dragonflies caught in the blast would drop and sink to the bottom of the lake. For consistency I have added the option to make all insect remains float like the fish. No more diving to the bottom of a lake to retrieve dragonflies.

 

Inspired by IsharaMeradin's "monarch Butterflies Get Wing Lift" mod, I created my own fix for the backwards wings on monarch butterflies. My implementation flips the mesh data instead of using a custom transparent texture, so it does not have transparency issues with the butterfly in a jar. I made this an option in case it looks weird with any alternate textures for the monarch butterfly mesh.

 

I think this is a no-brainer to add to STEP.

From the description it certainly sounds like it is; I'm a little surprised that the UKSP team hasn't looked at it to reevaluate their existing patch.

I don't see why this can't be in USKP. It's pretty much mesh fixes.

 

I definitely recommend this for STEP Core with the 101 bugs and Salmon and Pondfish replacer options.

Accepted for v2.2.9.1 for Core.

 

Placing this in Section H due to it needing to be loaded after 101Bugs and Pond Fish. I'm recommending to install all options.

Hi guys

 I'm new to modding and STEP and i have a little question about this mod:

 

Do i have to check all options(101BugsHD Support and PondFish and Salmon Replacer) even if i don't use these mods? They are both not Core Mods.

 

I'm just a little unsure because the installer remminds me to have them installed.

Thank you for your fast responds ::):

 

So i guess it's best to just install the requiered mods aswell i guess?

I see no reason to skip those two mods unless you are planning on using a different texture mod for them. But all in all, the Guide is just a guide and you can pick and choose the mods you desire.

Yeah you are right. Though i'm so indecisive (and inexpirienced) about stuff like that. Hence the reason why i use this great guide :)

 

It was just the fact with core/non-core.

 

Thank you

Regarding how this interacts with CACO, which displaces 101Bugs but recommends "Lepidoptera of Skyrim (CACO)": CF should overwrite Lepidiptera, w/o Monarch Wing or 101bugs fixes; see forum reference.

Good day.

 

I'm installing Critter Fixes right now, and STEP recommends not to select any optional component in the Introduction section (i.e. Overview and Screenshots 01..04). Could somebody point out why that's the case? And what do this components accomplish, exactly?

 

Thank you all!

It's sort of an oddly designed FOMOD. The selections in the Introduction page don't actually do anything. They're just placed there as a "feature list" of what the mod provides. No files are installed by selecting the boxes.

      Immersive Equipment Displays by slavicpotato1
      Wiki Link
      Display unequipped gear and custom items on the player or NPCs. Works with any item with no additional meshes required. Does not use body slots. SKSE64 plugin. Custom in-game user interface for configuring everything in real-time while you're playing. Includes a flexible positioning system for both equipped and unequipped gear.
      I find this mod extrememly immersive. Pulling weapons and items out of thin air always seemed awkward. Seeing the dragonborn actually carying around their equipment and arsenal adds visual flavor and realism.
      Optionally can be combined with Simple Dual Sheath for dual wield builds.

      Worldspace Transition Tweaks by AndrealphusVIII
      Wiki Link
      This is a very interesting mod, yet relatively unknown mod. While the main thing it advertises is the ability to swim from Skyrim to Solstheim, it is a lot more than that on the LOD front. It has overhauled a huge amount of the landscape, mostly the landscape beyond the playable regions. It also expands the size of Tamriel and Solstheim worldspaces. I am unsure that there aren't problems due to the size increase, as I had thought that there was a certain limit on the bounds that can be used for worldspaces without bugs.
      There are multiple incompatibilities that can be found and resolved in xEdit, mostly involving weather records added to certain cells. There are landscape conflicts between this and Smooth Shores that possibly might require a Creation Kit patch.
      One idea I had, however, was to not use this mod in its entirety, but only for xLODGen generation, like xLODGen Resource - SSE Terrain Tamriel (which is merged with this mod, btw). I'm not sure if this is a viable idea or not, but seems possible.
