This mod adds more Imperial and Stormcloak soldiers to the wilderness.

Everyone has different preferences! Please use the below settings to make the mod play the way you want instead of asking me to change the defaults.

Change the below settings by bringing up the console (tilde [~] button) whilst in the game and typing (obviously change the numbers to the ones you want):
"set MoreWarDifficulty to 0" Max is 4 - Sets the relative level of any spawned NPCs, 0 being the lowest and 4 being the highest.
"set MoreWarSpawnDistance to 12288.0" - Sets the distance from the player at which NPCs spawn
"set MoreWarSpawnFrequency to 60.0" - The number of seconds between script loops
"set MoreWarSpawnLimit to 63" Max is 127 - The population limit for MoreWar NPCs -1, i.e. 63 = 64
"set MoreWarSquadSize to 3" Max is half of above + 1 - 1, e.g. 63 for 127 - The number of NPCs in a squad -1, i.e. 3 = 4
"set MoreWarSpawnRestrict to 0" Max is 3 - How restrictive the code is with placing NPCs: 0 : Wilderness only, 1 : Wilderness and some other areas like Blackreach, 2 : Anywhere not interior, including inside cities, 3 : Everywhere including interiors, i.e. no restrictions

You can also get a list of the above settings by typing help MoreWar in game using the console.

I love this mod it has great impact on the game. The only problem is there's way too many soldiers !! And I don't mean encountering a large group of like 30 soldiers, that's great. It's just that I encounter small groups basically all the time at all places. I think I encountered 10 squads on my way up the steps to the greybeards !

I tried increasing the loop script time to 500 but that doesn't seem to have much effect. Maybe that's because the script runs at every time the game loads ? So everytime I reload a save or maybe exit a room, then the script runs, adding soldiers each time ?

I'll increase the spawn rate to 1000 and see if that helps.I guess I want to reduce the number of squads but not the population limit.

Mainly the problem is that almost every enemy I meet in the wild, will be killed by soldiers engaging it, making the game too easy.

The idea is ok! The mod works but you are doing it too much! I just started the game and when i was traveling to riverwood from helgen ralof said "if we run into any imperials let me handle the talking" he sees 3 imperials and they are being like "hey sup" and we ignore them. We travel and travel and suddenly another imperial comes in but this time hes like "ILL KILL YOU!!!!!" and in riverwood one of the MPC's named alvor died because of a random stormcloak...

uhhhh ok so I fight like loads of guards on the roads and as im fighting lets say the 3rd-5th npc the first corspe will dissapear how do I fix that....Cause I want to loot him......the dissappearing corpse thing really kills the fun of it all...

Well, you could say for a lack of soldiers in the wilderness, you COULD say that the armies are still amassing and are still calculating their plans of attack...until you join either side.

Sometimes quests get boring, so this keeps Skyrim fun

I had this mod at maximum the other day for fun and while I was finishing off a quest at Windhelm in the Palace of Kings, the maximum number of Stormcloak soldiers just started walking into the Palace. This mod is awesome.

And how do i fix it
AFreeMarketeer Jun 30 @ 12:16pm 
for some reason when i am in a fight with guards or anything for that matter in the wild, it randomly crashes. I do have the extra encounters mod also and find when i disable the more war in the wilds mod the crashing stops. Does anyone know why this is?
