You Sha'n't be Beheaded! You Are All Pardoned Version

''As they walked off together, Alice heard the King say in a low voice, to the company, generally, 'You are all pardoned.' 'Come, that's a good thing!' she said to herself, for she had felt quite unhappy at the number of executions the Queen had ordered.''

In the same vein as my previous mod, ''You Sha'n't be Beheaded!''
This version modifies one global value, DecapitationChance, changing it to zero and ideally removing decapitation from the game altogether except for scripted executions, like the Helgen and Solitude execution scenes.

You will no longer decapitate enemies, and enemies will no longer decapitate you or NPCs.

It also disables the decapitation kill moves, which is a much more reliable removal of decapitation.

It's very small, and I don't expect much response to it, but I'm sure there are some folks out there who would like something like this.

NOTE! I would suggest NOT merging with Wyre Bash. The mod should be loaded at the very end of the load order, just before any Bashed Patches. In my experience merging it with Wyre Bash made the mod unfunctional.

Q. What do you have against decapitation? I don't see why this "problem" needed solving.
I'm not telling you to download it, and I'm not saying you're evil for liking dismemberment.
I have NOTHING against decapitation and I'm not trying to "fix" it.
Skyrim is very tame compared to some video games, and I actually enjoy killing vampires by decapitation.
I made this mod to give people options. Some people (myself included) don't like watching a character they care about get tortured or torn apart. Some people want to play characters who don't dismember others. I know for a fact that some people play Skyrim with their kids, and want the ability to turn decapitation off.

Short version:
It's not a bug-fix, it's an option.

Question: does this mod make enemies not decapitate?

Hi, does this mod remove all the kill moves that result in decapitation.. or... does it remove the decapitation aspect of those moves that have it, but still keep the moves inthe game without the head coming off?

Thenk you! this is awesome! I've been wanting to show this to my family but all the gore stopped me from doing so. This plus the no blood mod makes it perfect!

THANK YOU i can't believe some people are actually angry there's a mod like this....different people are bothered by different things....personally i just didnt like how it looked and its also annoying when you want to use dead thrall but you can't because their head's rolling about...i think the other killmoves are much cooler so thank you c:

Such a mod would definitely be possible. Blood is controlled by simple textures, so making those textures transparent would remove it.

cooln i wish someone would make a mod where you can turn off blood and gore

Yeah, I understand, I just think it's pretty pointless for someone to want. It's not like decapitations are even that common.

Cool, thanks.

(I'd like to point out that i'm not bashing your mod or anything, I just think that people who want it for their kids are kinda dumb)
