Kill Them Generals

Tired of Stormcloak Generals and Imperial Legates being essential during or after the Civil War?
Well, no more!

This simple fix removes their essential status allowing them to be killed.
Galmar and Rikke doesn't count, as they're required in quests.

Version 1.2, as promised, is now up.
I'm sorry to say that the game-breaking effect of Legate Quentin Cipius's death forced me to make him Essential. His death will ruin the Imperial Legion questline, something I've gotten multiple reports on. If there are anyone that really wants to kill him, use the console to remove his status. Open the console with the tilde button (to the very left, left of 1), and type "setessential 000844D1 0" without the quote marks.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but I felt the need to update this. I also did this to update the mod to the current version of Skyrim, to make sure it runs optimally.

Version 1.1 is up!
Now, killing the General/Legate will set the camp to cleared in the map.

Note: As far as I know, only one of these regular generals are important to the Civil War. I've adressed his case above. Except for this one case, if a Dragon swoops by your quests and gameplay will be perfectly safe.

Also, I'm very sorry for those people who can't get this to work, as I can't help you. I don't know what the issue is, and thus I can't adress it. Some people have told me that the problem might be a conflict with the Unofficial Skyrim Patch, but I can't confirm this. Hopefully any issues you have can be dealt with by using BOSS or by other means.
Check out my other mods too, if you mind!

@generalawesome: Yes, that would in theory be possible. That's the case for lots of NPCs in the base game, where they become killable after their quest is done. I however am not able to do this, due to both lack of interest and ability. I never intended to make Galmar and Rikke be killable at all, and the case with Quentin was simply a quick fix. I did not bother with doing scripts to remove their essential status after certain conditions were met, due to not wanting to mess with the game files more than necessary.

So, having not installed this yet or worked with modding but: to make Galmar, Rikke, and Quentin killable, is there a way to have them be essential until you don't need them anymore or based on which side you take? Like it seems like there should be a way to have Cipius be killable ONLY if you join the Stormcloaks.

@allengerchman: That's intentional, you'll need another mod to do that

Awesome. Thanks my friend

@g114wheeler: yes, it won't affect a thing other than those NPCs. Fully compatible.
