Version 2.5.1

Forgot to include an alias for the Whiterun city gate into the restructured quest.

Update: Aug 10, 2014 @ 12:57am

Version 2.5.0

Overhauled the startup quest to allow for "plugging in" additional start options without the need to directly edit the quest scripts that run the mod.
Fixed a long standing bug with the random "Surprise Me" option. It should now be a lot more random than before.
Intro scenes in Sleeping Giant Inn, Windpeak Inn, and The Frozen Hearth will now play properly when these inn starts are chosen.
The friendly faction trigger in Mara's Eye Pond was not large enough, making it possible for the player to step outside of it and cause the vampires there to turn hostile when they shouldn't.
It was possible for the guild randomizer to pick the Dawnguard start even if the DLC was not active.
Starting as a soldier for the Imperials or Stormcloaks was not marking Unbound as completed.
If the player went directly to Whiterun after seeing Alduin fly over, it was possible for Balgruuf and Irileth to be elsewhere in Dragonsreach when the scene about Helgen starts.

Version 2.4.1

Added an ini snippet to prevent the character's hands from returning to the bound state when switching races during chargen.
ARTH_TIF_LALNewStart_020370F7 was attempting to set an invalid quest objective. (Bug #16522)
The old prison start cell has been removed. If you find yourself suddenly transported to the Sleeping Giant Inn in Riverwood, trust me, I'll know what happened :P
Synchronized fixes from USKP 2.0.5.

Version 2.4.0

The starting prison cell location has been relocated to the Abandoned Prison in Eastmarch. Across the road/river from Fort Amol. This has been done to provide access to a new start option.
The farmhouse start has been relocated to a new plot of land north of Rorikstead. The property name has also been changed from Karnsdale Farmhouse to Shoal's Rest Farm. The interior cell was not affected, so there is no need to worry about losing anything inside.
All vanilla edits to faction data have been removed. Faction relationships will now be exclusively handled in the DLC support script.
The starting journal entries have removed mention of going to Helgen, and the initial objective to ask about war rumors has been removed. In order to pursue the startup quest, go to an innkeeper and ask about rumors. One of them will now deal with the operation in Helgen.
Removed several unused silent voice files that were floating around.
New start added: Erik the Slayer's childhood friend. Only available to Nords.
New start added: Escape My Cell.
New start added: Warlock's Thrall.

Version 2.3.7

Dunmer can now choose whether to start in Windhelm or in Raven Rock (if Dragonborn is installed).
The Dunmer start in previous versions failed to properly advance the DLC2Init quest to stage 100. This resulted in numerous quests on Solstheim not being started when they should be. This has now been fixed but cannot be applied retroactively since some quests could have been started through other means. If you wish to make it fix itself anyway, just walk on to the boat in Raven Rock and the trigger there will do this for you.
The inn patron start option will now offer the chance to start in Raven Rock if Dragonborn is installed. This works for any race.
Several old scripts that should have been cleaned out ages ago have been removed.
Shady Sam will now carry his traditional vendor inventory once you have made your way to Helgen.
Syncronized fixes from USKP 2.0.4.

Version 2.3.6a

The wrong version of the script controlling Whiterun's gate was packaged and has been corrected.

Update: Mar 27, 2014 @ 9:51pm

Version 2.3.6

Reworked the method for setting Tullius and Ulfric aside. They will both be disabled temporarily instead of trying to move them around to confine them. The only exceptions now will be for soldier starts, which don't require going to Helgen, and the campsite start, which triggers the events that would re-enable them both anyway. This should avoid some previously unknown Papyrus timing issues that were getting in the way too.
Hilde's scene in Riverwood after Alduin has appeared should now play out properly if the player visits Riverwood before advancing Before the Storm (MQ102).
Start options for Solitude will now be disabled if Giskard's Return to Helgen is installed.
The second collapse inside Helgen Keep has been removed and any live soldiers that needed to be killed will be. This allows access to the whole keep in order to loot it if desired. The bridge collapse will remain in place though so you will still need to go around to the other side if you want to rescue Hadvar or Ralof.
A dialogue bug with Irileth if the player told Sven about the dragon attack instead of Alvor or Gerdur was fixed.
Retro script update messages will only be logged if they should actually run.

Version 2.3.5

Part of the clutter in Honeyside was not clearing if Hearthfire was installed.
There were some misaligned wall pieces in the starting prison cell.
The lights on the bridge approaching the College of Winterhold were never turned on for the College start.
Due to complications from the quest at Nilheim, the bandit start located here has been moved to Snowpoint Beacon in Winterhold. (Bug #14530)
Merged necessary fixes to match up with USKP 2.0.1. (Bug #14623)
A backup method for Ulfric and Tullius to get out of the prison cell after you reach Helgen has been added.
