Subscribe to download: Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition

This is the HEARTHFIRE EDITION of Birds and Flocks. If you do not own the official Hearthfire expansion for Skyrim, do NOT download this file.

The original Birds and Flocks is NOT COMPATIBLE with Hearthfire.

The Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition will NOT WORK on your system without Hearthfire.

This mod IS compatible with Dragonborn and Dawnguard.

The only difference between the two versions is their compatibility with Hearthfire.

If you are switching from the original Birds and Flocks mod to the Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition, first disable and/or uninstall the ORIGINAL "Birds.esp" using the Skyrim launcher's "Data" menu, and then subscribe to this version.

The ORIGINAL Birds and Flocks can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=13540


Adds dozens and dozens more instances of birds that fly away when startled by the player or another creature.

Also adds many more circling birds of prey along cliffs, tundras, forests and mountains.

Now includes more bats in dungeons.

Coooool, thank you! This mod is necessary!

The hawks are killable, but the birds that scatter from trees are asthetic only.

I didn't see if this was mentioned, can the birds be killed, or is it purely asthetic?

Glad it is all fixed up! The mod isn't the kind of thing you'll notice immediately, but as you play the game, you'll see it at work. Have fun!

Hey Brodozer,
Thank you for your quick response. Here an update from my side:
1 Yes, the problem is consistent, also with different saves and only running this mod.
2 I just tried to delete the skyrimprefs file.
3 That seemed to fixc the problem, as the game now loads just fine. However, I can't tell for certain of the mod works, as I don't know or there are MORE birds. I do notice quite a few birds, but I haven't payed that much attention to birds before so I don't know or it are more.

But anyway, I do have the mod loading and the game works fine, so thank you very much for this mod!

With kind regards,

Finn Sauër

Hey Finn: The first thing is make sure you've verified that disabling the mod allows the game to load, and that it begins crashing on loadup consistently when the mod is re-activated.

Try loading other saves and see if it crashes on those also. Try loading a game saved in an interior, and then from that interior, load your save that is crashing. If it loads, resave it, and proceed from there.

If no luck, try deleting the skyrimprefs file from the My Documents/My Games/Skyrim folder. The file will regenerate on the next launch, but player settings such as graphics details and game preferences will be reset to their defaults, so you'll need to set those back to where you had them.
