***** Description *****

I was always annoyed about how little traps played in exploring. They did soo little damage that you never had to worry about them at any sort of threat level. This mod makes every trap instant kill. The screenshot is from the Bleak Falls Barrow i.e. the first trap you run into - and its deadly.

I felt soo much anxiety just trying to find my first trap for the screenshot as i knew if i didnt see one it would be death - i love this type of feeling in games i.e. i like hardmode. If you dont like being killed for not seeing traps, then this mod is NOT for you.

EDIT: I have made a mod that gives all followers the LightFoot perk so they will not set off any traps. That should make this mod more useful.

Found here:

***** What does this mod do specifically? *****

* I edited all the damage variables in the trap scripts to be a really high number
* I edited all the Trap Spells to do a really high amount of damage
* I edited any weapon associated with traps and made their damage really high

***** PowerFang Mod's *****

I'm making a bunch of small mods to improve the various aspects of the game that i've felt needed changing. My mods are small but it just means you can turn on and off what you do and dont want. So if liked this mod, there may be another mod i have done that you would enjoy on my workshop page:

I hate how the traps are so pointless and there are so few of them and easy to detect

I would like to see an update to adjust the danger settings of the traps, so that one could increase the difficulty/damage of traps, without necessarily making them one-hit kills. For now I'll favor as I do like the idea of trap difficulty being increased to some meaning.

I uninstalled this mod yet some how it seems to be still running on my Game, this is after I started branded new with this mod turned off. First time I touched the trap in Bleak Falls Barrows, before I could even step back from the pressure switch to let it kill the Drauge attacking me (A tricked I mastered my first playthrew) I died when I stepped on the pad :/

I have a link to my "LightFooted Followers" mod which will address the issue of your followers setting off traps.

p.s. i have ideas about a different change to Traps that solves the issue that traps are basically useless in vanilla but doesnt kill you instantly either - makes them more "interesting"

I am actually going to add LIGHT FOOT perk to every companion - but its a bit of work so published it before i have done the change - though its something i will be doing tonight after work.
