Dragon Nests

(Random dragon roaring fixed! :D ) Ever wonder if dragons have a family? Or a place to go to after a long day of terrorizing towns? This mod adds dragon nests to the world of skyrim. If you are in the colder regions of skyrim, you will see frost dragon nests, if you are in warmer regions, you will see blood or tundra dragons. They will hunt anything near them, including you. You will also see lone dragons perched on mountains and such.

Added death dragons
Added lava and flame dragons.
I added dragon hunters.
Changed the dragon part's alchemy effects to something unique.
I added Skeletal dragons around Hjaalmarch. (Will add to Falkreath Hold soon)
Next to the main entrance of the Riverwood Trader, there is a "strange barrel' with a book about the dragons.
Added a dragon cave called "Frostbite Cave". (VERY buggy when entering and leaving the cave.)

Dragons Added:

Male Dragons: Can shout, can fly, extremly aggressive and tough.

Female Dragons: Can shout, can fly, more aggressive when near dragonlings.

Young Dragons: Can shout, can fly, aggressive. not very tough

Dragonlings: Can't shout, can't fly, run away on sight, extremly weak.

Dragons Drop:

Usual dragon scales, bones, and random treasure
Dragon Hearts
Dragon Claws


Dragonlings sometimes walk into the ground. (They get out though)
Death dragons die like Alduin (Not really a bug, they are supposed to do that.)

Please report any bugs you find!


Q: Do they respawn?

A: Yes.

Q: Did you remove all dragon roars?

A: No, only the background roaring.

Q: Does it work with ....?

A: I don't use many other dragon mods so I don't know. I do know that it works with dragons diversified. (It doesn't change the dragon I added)

Q: Are you going to update...?

A: I'm sorry, but life is keeping me far away from advancing in any of my mods.

NOTE: Before you comment, I want to tell you this. This mod isn't supposed to be lore friendly! So please stop commenting about it!

Part two!
6: Oh, yeah, fix the soul bug, you probably need to edit the script and add the MQKillDragon (i think thats how its called) script to the dragons
7: Fix the dragonborn bug, apparently it causes dragons to not appear and sometimes spawns serpentine ones
8: Level the dragons, weaker dragons ranging from level 1-10 and harder dragons at level 30-50 etc...
9: Using LOOT or BOSS sometimes crashes the app, again, fix the load order
10: Some dragons spawn inside the ground, not just dragonlings

There are a few things to point out:
1: You need to put the nests far away from eachother and from roads and such, the mountains would be a good choice
2: The load order is giving me a headache, i had to put it around the middle of my load order, or else it crashes or the nests are not there at all
3: Fix the mod incompatibilities, sometimes dragons from other mods dont spawn at all or get overwritten by yours
4: Bugfixes, we really need them
5: You should probably put this on nexus, that way i wont break my head trying to figure out where this mods goes, the mod manager makes things easier
saw once a very tiny Dragon
gosh it was so cute xD <3

This is a great mod but there are a few issues.

The dragons nests are to close to citys and close together! when im walking down a street I get ambushed by a old married couple of dragons! and the nests are too close together so you can think how diffucult and laggy it gets wth alot of dragons.

I also think that should be in more rural areas away from towns / roads etc.

besides from those little issues this is a great od if i want to activley see a epic dragon fight!

When I kill the dragons in the nest, they dont give me souls. Is it a bug that I dont get the dragon soul?

I don't recommend this while playing very low level. Everywhere I go I get attacked by multiple dragons and get my ass kicked.

two problems I have run into, I killed a male and a female frost dragon, and niether of them gave me a soul, and I CAN'T HIT THE YOUNG BLACK DRAGON KILLING ME, the hitbox is messed up
