This mod improves Skyrim's detection while sneaking, triggered by loud noises, changes in light sources and movement.
If you think vanilla sneaking is way too easy (and why not ridiculous sometimes), this mod is for you.
This is an approach to a more realistic gameplay.

If you want to know what this mod does exactly I've uploaded a video, but basically what it does is tweak the default detection values of the game, making it a little more challenging to sneak on npcs.

You will be DETECTED if:
- you walk in the NPCS line of sight and the area is too bright (lit corridors, using torchs or spells that give out light)
- if you make too much noise (wear heavy armor, cast loud spells, run, etc)

It will be harder for you to be DETECTED if:
- you watch patrolling patterns and sneak at the NPCS back
- your sneak level is high enough and you spent some skill points in your sneaking perks
- you wear light armor or wear accessories or enchantments that boost your sneak skill

This mod has worked as intended/advertised in most situations, but a few of the sneaking missions are straight up ruined by it. :(

That's cool and all, but seriously that video would make this mod showing a whole lot funnier.

I did not test it but I'm sure it's compatible with wearable lanterns and since the lanterns are light sources from the original game, they should affect your sneaking as well.

this isn't very good, i feel at times i've been detected when i shouldn't have. I can be at the side, not moving at all, completely in the dark, and they can still see me.
