The Dungeons includes 115+ sound effects to add life to the dungeons. The enemy type that inhabits a dungeon will make itself heard. At dungeons’ entrances, you also hear the exterior weather. If there’s a thunderstorm raging outside, you’ll hear the thunder rumbling in the fort or cave

There's a standard sound set for each type of dungeon: Cave, Dwemer Ruins, Forts and Sewers. These sounds play in these dungeons regardless of who or what lives in it. To spice it up, dungeons inhabited by Falmer or the Undead have their own sound sets in addition to the standard ones. Undead dungeons have zombies and wraiths screaming or moaning. In Falmer dungeons, you'll hear their occasional screams; a way of communicating with each other since they are nearly blind.


The infamous bug introduced by Civilization that broke save games has finally been purged for good. If you still have a save game that suffered from bloating because of Civilization, please refer to the Technical section on Civilization's workshop page. You can find the link to it below,

What is Sounds of Skyrim?

Sounds of Skyrim is an audio project split in three parts that, in the end, adds around 460+ sound effects to the game world. It affects almost every cell and region in the game. My main goal is to not have one environment that is soundless to enhance immersion. The sounds are affected by the time of day, weather and location. So when walking in the city streets during the day, you'll hear the echo of doors opening and closing, children playing and workers sawing things. While at night, cats fight for territory and dogs bark.

All three modules have been released and can be obtained on the website from where you downloaded this module.

The other main feature is being able to hear the outside from the inside. If you get close to windows inside buildings, you’ll hear what’s going on outside. If you’re in a wilderness cabin on a rainy day, you’ll hear the rain’s impact on the wooden roof. If you’re in the entrance of a cave and look outside, you’ll hear the birds and other animals outside going about their lives.

All sounds can be heard from inside if you’re in a building where you can hear them. For instance, if you’re in a farm in the wilderness at night, you’ll hear the farm animals present, wolves howling, owls, crickets and other nightlife animals.

Finally, this mod would never have been possible without the contribution of many sound recorders and artists from Freesound.org. There’s a file in the archive with the credits for everyone who made the sounds. A HUGE thanks to them, otherwise the sounds would not have been as high quality as they are.

If you are experiencing crashes while using this module, there is now a crash fix available on the Skyrim Nexus' download page, in the Optional Files section at this link: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=8601

To install it, you must replace the existing "SoS - The Dungeons.esp" file located in your Skyrim/Data directory with the crash fix found on the link above.

Q: The sounds in the videos are too loud or/and the delay between them is too short.
A: This was done in purpose in the videos. The higher volumes allows you to distinguish them from the default sounds and the frequency allows you to hear as many sounds as possible to give a nice preview of what the mod does. In the game, the volume is much lower and the sounds do not play frequently.

Q: I do not like 'that or this' sound. What can I do?
A: There's an in-game configuration utility that starts when you first launch Civilization that allows you to disable or re-enable groups of sounds.

Q: Does Sounds of Skyrim decreases performance?
A: No. The way the new sounds play is the same way the game's default sounds are played.
