Description
(Formally known as Better factions: Complete)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mod Description:

This mod alters the stats, inventory, perks and spells of many NPC's in the game. The effected Npc's are all members who belong to either the Thalmor, the Stormcloaks, Imperials, Forsworn, Bandits, Al'akir warriors and finally orc strongholds. These changes make them all far more challenging to fight, as well as more lore friendly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE NOTE:
This mod does not alter the amount of NPC's spawned. The screenshots are just for decoration, and were from the hours of testing I did to see if all the changes had taken place.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LOOK AT THIS AS WELL

***If new imperial or stromcloak guards and captains are naked, this is skyrim getting used to their new stuff. click on them in the console and type "resetinventory". simple 5 second fix works all the time.****

Keep in mind this mod has not been updated since 2012 - 2013

is it normal that I can only now play if this mod is loaded? I added it a few days ago and now I can't un-load it since it crashes the game whenever I try to play it without the mod

"More war in the wild: I am working on a fix for this."

I actually like that. ;P

This is causing problems when playing with illusion or conjuration, spells that rely on enemy levels are completely useless unless they work on something higher than your own level (until you get past the enemy max level.) This is a real problem and I may stop using the mod due to this.

is it possible to join the thalmor
Cupender Dec 18, 2016 @ 8:48am 
Yeah, I am playing as a nord I tried taking off my armour and putting on the bandits entire gear set, went up to a bandit that didn't see me kill his friends and suddenly the bandit attacked. I was starting the game out as well.

V As below stated, wondering the same. Although I noticed the 'Soon to arrive' as "Done" status.
