Real Traders:

The goal of this mod series is to make Skyirm feel more realistic and Immerse. I grew tired of always encountering Npcs on the roads but never actually seeing them
in the cities or villages. This mod changes all that. I have created actual traders that travel from city to village, and vice versa.
They will travel to a different destination everyday and will stay at an Inn during the night.
Ever wonder where all the sell swords have gone? We'll these traders have payed the extra coin for protection thats right some traders will have a Bodyguard.
If you have been getting sick of running in to those ghostly Npcs on the roads I highly recommend you download this now, you wont be disappointed.


Intractable Traders - Buy and sell things to them anywhere at anytime.
Advanced AI - Moving from City to city, village or civil war camps.
Massively Diverse - A massive list of different Npcs chosen to spawn and never despawn. Will wear clothes suitable to the current climate.

Quick note:
This mod may not be for eveyone! If you want to quickly sell of all your items on the road your going to have to find a few more traders. I have made it so they are true to the term trader. Meaning their worth is in the items and not all in gold.

Compatiable with:

-The Civil war quest lines (not sure about modded civil wars)
-Other encounter able Npcs

Other mods:
-Mods that spawn Npcs in cities should be ok
-Wet & Cold (for the traders to equip cloaks)
-Equipment Flexibility (for traders to equip backpacks)
-Extra Encounters
-Adventurers & Travelers

Simply Extract the Data folder to your Skyrim directory.

Delete Real Traders.esp from the Skyrim/Data directory.
Delete Real Traders Folder in Data/Textures/Actors/Character/FaceGenData

Known Bugs:

-Dialogue menu does not appear when you talk to them:
They are giving you or gifting you something. In witch case after the item is added you may interact with them.

-Mouths are stuck open after trading:
This is a game glitch bug. Sometimes their mouths get stuck open after you trade with them. They usually say something right after witch fixes it.
It does reset a few seconds after. (I like to think that there are shocked you bought or sold something to them, haha.)


If this mod does not work for whatever reason please do not complain.
Simpy read ALL of this section to ensure you have everything down right, In witch if you do then go ahead and leave a comment about the problem.

If your game freezes, crashes or stops working upon load up. Try to re launch it. Same problem happens than make a clean save in your house or in a castle or something.

Possible and most likely errors:

-Load order is your best friend. Play around with it. Put it under other Npc mods. Download BOSS to do it for you.
-Other mods that completely redesign the cities. Added trees and stuff to them is ok but a new ctiy form scratch could be evil.
-Make sure your not over loading on Skyrim with mods.

When Traveling to another city game freezes, crashes or whatever.
Again most likely the load order or something to do with the city it self. Try to pin point the problem. Its not as hard as it sounds.

When on the road game crashes.
Should not happen. Is most likely another mod.

Other than the problems listed(under known bugs) this mod works just fine. As long as you know and care for your mods this should seamlessly merge in with your game world.

Planned for the future:

Real Adventurers
Real Travelers
Real Treasure Hunters
Real Vampires & Vampire Hunters
Real Hunters(Maybe)

Version History:

Toned down the spawn rate to half
Fixed some Bodyguard Packages
Added crime factions (Plan out how to kill them now)
Repacked some textures

Fixed some dialogue issues
Tweaked "Bodyguard" Packages
Tweaked Traders Gold list
Tweak Traders Hat list

Ah sweet spoke too soon, I've just encountered a merchant with two bodyguards!

Adds to ease-of-play, immersion and emergent scenarios when they bump into other actors. Would like to see some of the richer merchants have an extra-body guard if possible. Two thumbs up!
