More Critters

More Critters 0.8
By: SpiderAkiraC(AC3C)

I made this mod quite awhile ago but for some reason never uploaded it, till now.

"More Critters" is a gameplay enhancement mod that adds...well more critters to the game.
It intelligently places spawns in all the cities and villages that aren't covered in snow. They have a 100% chance to spawn and do not affect performance.
-Butterflies and the odd moth will come out in the day time. Torchbugs and Moths at night.
-Dragonflies are near any water source in the cities/villages and disappear at night.
-Pond Fish and Salmon are really active when it's early morning or raining, and calm down during the day.
-At night they are still around just in a "sleeping state".
-Butterflies, Moths and Dragonflies do not spawn in rain.
-Butterflies, Moths and Dragonflies should fly away if you get to close to them.
-Many different sizes

For those that don't know critters are the following:
Pond Fish

In all:
538 new land markers added
16 new spawners created
147 places to spawn

Should I do interiors?
Temples, Inns, etc

I have 120+ mods and this one works fine among them.
If you have a mod that redesigns the cities/villages layout, then it could be a problem.

Recommended mods:
101 Bugs - adds more variation with all the bugs.
skyBirds - adds birds that fly around acting much like real birds
Real Wildlife - adds more animals and improves their AI

Simply place the More Critters.esp file in the "Data" folder
MAKE SURE you are in an interior not effected by the mod, i.e Your house or shop.
Theres good chance if you load a save in a area affected by this mod your game will crash. Load again and the bugs will despawn until you revisit after 24 hours.

Delete the More Critters.esp from the "Data folder

Known Bugs:
When a critter "flees" from the player theres a cool down time 3-5 sec so don't be chasing the same butterfly!
Sometimes the flee function doesn't always work (working on fix)
Sometimes the Butterflies can land on top of each other.
Critters will despawn if the player is far away enough from them. In big cities. i.e Solitude or Riften.

I hope you enjoy this mod and thanks in advance for downloading!
please check out my other mods!

i dont have a problem , whose never had a bug get inside?!? Even if they are inside who cares? All the more real to me...I think it's great

Thankyou. When I saw nature and lots of outside wilderness the lack of insects was a blow to its atmosphere. If theres that much open wilderness you better believe there would be a lot more insects. This mod made it more realistic. So I'm rating up on this and will invite others to do so.

BUGS: butterflies,bees,and torchbugs are found resting in one place depending on which city it is. they dont fly away and sometimes they even hover in a place your trying to walk in to.

I always thought it was odd not finding many moths

i always hoped to find a moth in skyrim i've never found one and i've finished the game twice and discovered every location

I have always thought the spawn amount of butterflys seemed off
