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

It uses the game lighting and sounds mechanincs for detection, so I believe anything that would affect those would also affect this mod's behaviour. Personally, I use RLO/RLFX for my realistic lighting mods and they work well along with this mod.

Does this work with any particular realistic lighting modifiers I wonder?

This would make my game worse. I have the first sneaking perk to 3/whatever the max is and somehow the enemies can hear and see me through stone walls.
