For anyone who is having issues with any house not appearing with this mod, please post your entire mod list here so that I can have a look at it and try to nail down any conflicts.

Also added a description of the actual mod just for irrevenant :)

Can you add a description of what the mod actually *does* please for those of us who come across this version first?

I'm having the exact same issue where Windstad Manor does not appear and I never used the other version, either. Both of the other houses work just fine, it's just that one that is bugged.

Birds not dying when shot is an issue that exists outside of this mod, and I'm unaware of any work around for it. I haven't heard any reports of birds merely disappearing when shot, so that is a first, but understand it's not any mod author's intent to screw up anyone's game.

I am so ticked of at this mod, when I unistalled it, birds that I shoot with my bow will just disappear instead o falling t the ground. Also the reason I unistalled it was because birds didn't die period. The arrows would just get stuck in the bird while flying arround. Thanks for screwing up my game -_- :(

I have never installed the original birds and flocks.

I had 3 other mods known to kill Windstad Manor, after uninstalling them the house was still broken. I then uninstalled Birds and Flocks Hearthfire Edition and my house came back in to existance.

I know that the Lakeview Manor works but not sure about any of the other houses.

Just to cover all the bases: If you were running the original Birds and Flocks, double check to make sure it is deactivated, and preferably uninstalled.

Do you know if there are any other houses being affected?

Also, are you certain that it is this mod and not another one that may be affecting exterior worldspaces? You have deactivated this mod and verified that your house works without it?

Windstad Manor.
Brodozer  [author] Apr 3 @ 7:53pm 
Which house is it?
Ericgi231 Apr 2 @ 2:54pm 
This version still screws up my house, no birds for me.

First mod totaly killed one of my homes, pretty upset about that, but i seriously appreciate you updating this and giving us back our birds! No hard feelings!

THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!

I was seriously frustrated, of all the Hearthfires home that I wanted - this was the main one. Of course the other two worked just fine ... (go figure) >..<

This fixed it so I can actually have the house that I really cared about.

THANK YOU!!!

This is causing a crash to desktop every time I try to save. I disabled it and now my game works fine.
oh, k thx mate.

Flocks appear most often in forests but there are some places in the more open areas where I managed to get them to work. Hawks can be placed anywhere.
are they supposed to fly around in the open, or do the flocks only appear in forest's?

i have used the original version of th emod, and i have hearthfire instaleed, but i never seemed to find any problems, what problems exactly would there be

Everytime I walk through a forest and a flock of birds fly off, I still jump in fright. Same with the bats underground that suddenly fly off. Good job my gaming chair is wipe clean!!
robinsonpablo20 Dec 15, 2013 @ 8:58pm 
oh
Brodozer  [author] Dec 15, 2013 @ 6:15pm 
Bats do exist in the game by default, but were only used in Bleak Falls Barrow, when you enter the chamber with the word wall. They flutter away quickly, but it is a startling effect that I added to other dungeons with this mod.
robinsonpablo20 Dec 15, 2013 @ 12:41pm 
bats?
AncienTzSlayeR Nov 28, 2013 @ 9:09am 
thanks, but ive tried it and its perfectly fine, love the mod, thank you so much for the immersion.
Brodozer  [author] Nov 27, 2013 @ 9:13pm 
If you've got an older system you may notice a brief hesitation when flocks flutter away. That is the only issue I've ever seen or heard of.
AncienTzSlayeR Nov 25, 2013 @ 12:32pm 
performance loss?
Brezlon Nov 25, 2013 @ 12:10pm 
@Kazoomie Ah well, thank you though for the reply.
Brodozer  [author] Nov 24, 2013 @ 5:50pm 
Nope, no chicken changes unfortunately. :(
Brezlon Nov 24, 2013 @ 5:03pm 
Does this mod change the graphics (species) of chickens at all? All I see in game unmodded are Rhode Island Reds, when Dorkings & other Old World chickens might suit Skyrim better.
Gintoki Nov 11, 2013 @ 10:34pm 
I allways got the main dlc's as active.
Brodozer  [author] Nov 11, 2013 @ 9:44pm 
Sakata, I know it's probably obvious, but make sure Hearthfire is enabled before attempting to use this version of the mod.
Gintoki Nov 10, 2013 @ 8:44pm 
Made my skyrim crash before reaching the main menu

Thanks for the mod. Anything that improves the natural world ingame is welcome. Keep at it!
Hobbesgoblin Aug 18, 2013 @ 6:33am 
Great stuff, nice immersion booster.

arm0003 - adds more birds to the environment - be it the hawks etc circling overhead, or the flocks of birds that burst from trees/shrubs as you walk nearby (I've noticed this happens quite a lot more than vanilla - if only because I invariably startle and draw my sword in anticipation of a fight ;) ).
Oldman Aug 9, 2013 @ 12:09pm 
Could you please put in the description what the mod actually does?
Johnline Aug 6, 2013 @ 2:41pm 
kazoomie now that you've had time to assess the BirdsHFclean.esp, can you update it for workshop? xoxexooex
buttman Jul 29, 2013 @ 9:28am 
Is there a simple way for a user to modify the frequency of circling hawks such that steam wouldn't revert the change as soon as the game is launched again? I am using this mod and while startling flocks is a noticeable addition, I am still very seldom seeing hawks in the sky and would like to see them around a bit more often.
Booke Jul 9, 2013 @ 8:18pm 
I understand, and it's no problem. I tried a bunch of things like resetting the house quest, disabling hearthfire (game crashed on main menu), resetting the cell, etc and nothing worked. I was only level 6 this time anyway, not a huge deal. Also, thanks for the mod. I really enjoy the atmosphere and immersion.
Brodozer  [author] Jul 9, 2013 @ 7:48pm 
Oh I understand now. The original mod does not allow the house to appear, so I am not sure if that data is actually available any place it could be retrieved and imported into your game.

It would honestly be easier to just build it from scratch than to try to dig through game files and try to pick out a few snippets of code that represent the house you built so far that didn't appear. (If that code even exists.)

Sorry about the inconvenience, but this is just one of those things that happens to some mods when official expansions or updates come out for a game.
Booke Jul 9, 2013 @ 7:37pm 
Thanks for getting back to me. It was in the area affected, the one by Hjaalmarch. I was able to plan the small house and build the foundation/walls/door etc. Nothing ever actually appeared though, so I figured there was some kind of ingame time I had to wait to see the house. After waiting, that's when I discovered I was using the wrong mod. Since using this updated version, I can now see new additions I build (like the wings, fish hatchery, etc) when I couldn't see them when I built them before with the wrong version. It's incredibly weird. Either way, I started a new game and everything is fine. It could have been a random hiccup, too. Skyrim loves to do that.
Brodozer  [author] Jul 9, 2013 @ 6:55pm 
Booke, I'm not quite sure I understand. You built at least part of a house, so it must not have been one that was in a location affected by the original mod. But then when you disabled the original BaF and switched to this version it disappeared?

I just want to make sure I understand so I can assist you.
Booke Jul 8, 2013 @ 12:07am 
I recently picked up Skyrim again after a long hiatus and just continued with my old mods. It wasn't until after I started building my house that I found out the old version of Birds and Flocks I was using was incompatible. I've switched to this one and was wondering if there is any way to salvage my missing house? I can build new additions and I can see them just fine, it's only the stuff I already built while using the wrong mod.
Brodozer  [author] Jun 29, 2013 @ 9:19am 
Iguanal, if you've switched over from the original Birds and Flocks to this version, make sure you've disabled and removed the original. If you're still having issues, you can try changing the load order of the mod (though this has never been required so far) and better still, you can try setting the game's graphical details to the lowest possible setting.

If the game loads on lowest details, re-save, exit, set your detail back where you want it, and you should be good to go.

If all else fails, never forget my favorite solution: Delete skyrimprefs from My Documents/My Games and try to launch.
Iguanal Jun 28, 2013 @ 1:48pm 
I cant start the game with this mod
EBS Jun 6, 2013 @ 8:02am 
After installing this mod I hardly see any birds and flocks at all.
SqUisheR May 29, 2013 @ 1:35pm 
HUZZAH! After switching to this from the original birds and flocks, and re loading to a save before I starting building winstad manor, I can now build and see winstad manor!!! ...


and there is much rejoicing
