Fixing Cheap Deaths in Skyrim
3 items
Description
This mod disables melee finishing moves, ranged/magic slow-motion kills, and dragon bite-and-throw attacks. The goal is to have more intense fights with less cheap deaths. The only killcam still enabled is the view that's shown when you're already dead.

This mod can also be found on Skyrim Nexus at http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/35362.

If you find any bugs or issues, please note them in the comments so I can promptly address them.

Testing

(You do not need to read this section to use the mod. It's just there for the curious.) In addition to several hours of informal testing in normal gameplay, more rigorous tests were run to ensure the mod did its job reliably.

First test: On Master difficulty, I provoked an ancient dragon, waited for it to land, set Health to 1 via console, and waited to get killed by a bite.
- Mod disabled: 8 of 20 bite-caused deaths involved killbites (i.e. bite-and-toss).
- Mod enabled: 0 of 20 bite-caused deaths involved killbites.

Second test: On Master difficulty, I provoked a sword-and-shield fighter at close range, set my Health to 1 via console, and waited to get killed.
- Mod disabled: 4 of 40 deaths involved killmoves.
- Mod enabled: 0 of 40 deaths involved killmoves.

Third test: On Novice difficulty, I used a ranged sneak attack to kill a Forsworn Forager.
- Mod disabled: 10 of 40 kills involved killcams.
- Mod enabled: 0 of 40 kills involved killcams.

Fourth test: On Novice difficulty, I used a dualcast Thunderbolt to kill a Forsworn Forager.
- Mod disabled: 14 of 40 kills involved killcams.
- Mod enabled: 0 of 40 kills involved killcams.

Fifth test: On Novice difficulty, I used a two-handed Power Attack with Devastating Blow to kill the last enemy in an area, a Forsworn Looter.
- Mod disabled: 8 of 20 kills involved decapitations, and 12 of 20 kills involved other killmoves.
- Mod enabled: 0 of 20 kills involved decapitations, and 0 of 20 kills involved other killmoves.

Very handy for magic users too. Watching me standing there blasting them with flames while they collapse is just silly and interrupts the immersion. This mod fixes that!

I agree that it stinks, It stops you from going up to the next victim and sneak killing them, Did you try the killmove commands in the console while also using this mod?.

Equilisys and Clearcontroller: The fact that the sneak attack animation is still played is a known bug. Unfortunately, I didn't know about it until months after after I stopped working on Skyrim modding. If I get back into it, I'll be sure to look into whether that can be fixed.

I'm with Clearcontroller also.

I sneak attack people all the time using a sword and it appears that I still have this killmove activated. I downloaded this mod solely to have killmoves completely disabled for a large number of reasons in line with my gameplay preferences. It also keeps a certain number of mods that I have selected more stabilized by simply disabling killmoves altogether.

I would appreciate it if this is looked in to.

lets see you gain more experiance from not killmoving, dragons are harder to fight in groups cause there not busy bite throwing, Not having killmoves is probably the best thing ever! :)

the killcam from slitting someones throat during a sneak attack is still present... is there any way to stop this?

Not sure if its because i added this mod, but the Atherial crown no longer gives you additional second stone perk thing

it is useful without this mod you can randomly die with full health from the killcams that sucks.

Geisterfahrer: No guarantees, but I may put that mod together in the near future. Disabling killcams, disabling killbites, and leaving killmoves untouched is pretty easy. Disabling 3rd-person killmoves in addition could take a bit of work (and I haven't done any Skyrim modding in about a year).

Hey David, I tested the mod you suggested to me over the last few weeks. I combined it with a 1st person finisher only mod. But i sometimes still get random 3rd person finishers :(
It would be really cool, if you could make a mod, which just disables all 3rd person killcams :D
Thanks a lot for your help.
Greetings
