Description
Harsh Nature v3.2

Requirements: official DLCs Dawnguard and Dragonborn

Do you think cooking food is futile in the game ? You didn't even notice you had a disease, until someone commented the way you look ? Nothing to worry about in the nature (bears, sabrecats etc), they aren't even near match for you ?

This mod fixes the situation. And this also

- makes diseases dangerous and makes many creatures even more dangerous
- adds 9 new diseases + medicine potions for every disease (cure disease -potion to cure all)
- cure poison -potion cures frostbite spider's poison and chaurus poison
- cure disease -potions can be bought from merchants, found from loots etc. (they are quite rare)
- when having multiple diseases curing even one of them will remove blurry vision
- displays diseases and poisons clearly in active effects
- shrines doesn't cure diseases anymore
- blessings from shrines last longer (was 8 hours, is 10 days now)
- adds inflict disease -ability to many creatures
- poison damages (from creatures, traps) last longer
- animals no longer have valuable items (why should animals have gold or gems) to loot
- races have reduced resistances for cold, magic, poison
- races have reduced healing rate
- makes bears, sabrecats, trolls, giants and wolfs act like enemies to each other
- foxes hate chickens (Riverwood has its own fox problem)
- diseases may make blurry vision to character and poisoning shows as a green glow
- 2 new spells to cure diseases and 3 new spells to cure poison/venom
- baked/cooked foods give bigger boosts (it's no more useless to cook foods)
- added more wispmothers to the Skyrim
- spiders have poison bite and venom spit (both can be cured)
- chauruses have poison bite and spit, which can be cured with cure poison -potion or with a spell

Traps inflict diseases regardless of your resistance for diseases. Animals inflict diseases occationally. Poisons you buy/make yourself work as they worked before, this mod doesn't boost poisons generally.

Trying to keep balance in the game.

=== About the mod

Tuned Skyrim a little bit harder for those, who have leveled enough to notice nature isn't so tough anymore... Starting game (from level 1) with this mod enabled may turn wild nature into place you least wanna go wandering.

=== Main reasons for this mod

I didn't like the fact that items (such as gold or gems) can be found when looting dead animals corpses. Also, poisons didn't affect me much in the vanilla game, nor the diseases. They were all too weak, so had to improve them. Made poison effects last longer (just to make them annoying) and diseases really show now in stats.

=== Tips

New spells can be learned from the books that are placed in the Arcanaeum, in College of Winterhold.

There's a new book called "Cooking with Balbus" which can be bought from merchants. Somebody from Rorikstead owns a copy of that book also.

There's also a new book called "Animal kingdom" which can be found from a cave located next to alchemist's shack, southwest from Ivarstead. This book reveals facts about animals and creatures, levels etc. in which they are.

Never go wandering into the (harsh) nature without cure/heal potions, or you might end up dead. Casting a cure spell consumes lots of mana.

=== Big changes

This mod edits ingredients effects so that it's not possible anymore for player to make Cure disease -potions.

Cure poison- and Cure disease -potions are quite rare and valuable, only way to get them is buy them. Or have good luck when looting chests. When you have luck to find them, better get and stock 'em.

I think it's all good :)

@i73Fi Well I'm a werewolf now, and I haven't gotten any more diseases, sooo... check? If you classified them as diseases, I think they'll work normally.

@kkilljjoy not sure, I haven't tried those. I didn't exclude any races from diseases tho :)
kkilljjoy Aug 22 @ 7:46pm 
@i73Fi - Are you immune to the new diseases if you are a werewolf or vampire? I've seen alot of mods that modify nature. Most are, unfortunately, incompatable with werewolf/vampire characters.

I agree with Carrier of Echoes. this is very wide-ranging.. but I do like any mod that makes the game harder to survive, it gets a thumbs up from me.....tho I would like to see a 'lite' version of this mod. where the cure potions are craftable but make the spell books for learning the recipes for these cure diseases/cure poisons potions/antidotes rae or dropped by s BOSS mod.

You have conflicting mod in your saved games. You need to remove mod(s), then SAVE (not quick save) and then LOAD save you just made. With that game cleans unused mods and their preferences from saved game.

I run it by it by iteself and it still crashes.
i73Fi  [author] May 25 @ 9:09am 
Crashes = conflict with some other mod. Load order may sort things out.
Dogearino May 24 @ 3:11pm 
hey mine crashes whenever i run it? any ideas?
Carrier of Echoes May 24 @ 1:01pm 
Great idea, but looks like too many and too wide-ranging changes to me :(
