I want to create new mounts and companions/followers with your mod (i like very much your creatures)!

…with your meshes and textures of:

Beaver, Bull Moose, Female Elk, Raccoon, Male Deer, Female Deer, Fawn, Megaloceros, Cave Lion, Eurasian Lynx, Canadian Lynx, Cougar… in my mod "Summon Forest Mounts and Followers "

Of course your name and the name of your mod will be cited...

Thanks !

Why everything is so easy to kill, I hit a direwolf on expert with 44 damage sword...

Can you make a mod that just adds the wild life w/o the AI because I would like to use this with another mod but can't due to that aspect.
Foxeh of Pirate Cove Aug 9 @ 2:00am 
Common wolves dont even try to attack, in fact, they try vividly to avoid attacking. Might resubscribe when the mod gets a bit more updated

I like the addition of the racoons and the bobcat, or lynx.

Can someone please address the issue with invisible animals?
HerebeDragons Aug 2 @ 10:38am 
For some reason, many of the new animals are invisible. I can hear them, hurt them, even skin them, but they're completely invisible. Any help?

what if you retextured some o the dogs, wouldd be a little more emersive to see diferent breeds of pets
ElvenAngel Jul 24 @ 2:45pm 
I'm amazed nobody's thought of creating wildcats. Not sabretooths or variants off. Wildcats. Little furry balls of hissing and spitting fury. Skyrim should be crawling with them -- and domestic or feral cats, now that I think about it.

...incidentally, a group of wildcats is called a 'destruction'. That... sounds very much like Skyrim to me.
Gol Zin Jul 19 @ 12:15pm 
Suggestion.....and this will be an EASY one to add....Skyrim needs an Opossum the Skeever model you use for the Raccoon and beaver would and is ABSOLUTELY perfect....the Behaviors fit those animals to a T the only behavior an Opossum has that's slightly out of the ordinary is it plays DEAD when it gets scared (a Momma Possumm just gets PISSED) Light gray fur.light pink paws and tail/ Nose....oh and the Possum could be considered a Food item (How many times have we heard Granny making possum pie on Beverly Hillbillies?)

Why are all the dire wolfs as easy to kill as regular wolfs?
☯LiquidGlitch☯ Jul 11 @ 6:12pm 
Help my animals are all invisible what do I do?
Screecher Jul 11 @ 7:05am 
how to download ?
KnightofRage26 Jul 9 @ 8:38pm 
What I would absolutely love to see, though it doesn't have hardly much to do with this mod, is giraffes
Wolf of Slytherin Jul 2 @ 4:38pm 
what mod did you use for your horse? love all of the animal textures and breeds!
johnbenston Jun 22 @ 12:11am 
I have somewhat fixed my problem if I carry hides close to it then I am able to turn them into leather, for example I cannot tan dire wolf hide into leather unless I have a wolf hide in my inventory.
johnbenston Jun 21 @ 8:21pm 
I can't seem to make leather out of any of these new hides
MooseMaster Jun 20 @ 3:46pm 
In the Desc, it says there is Moose, but in the pictures there isnt, i know this is sounding noobish, but i just wanna make sure, because i love moose.
dog Jun 19 @ 12:11pm 
@Darius: I think it depends on the individual animal and your level, maybe? I'm getting a weird mix of tenacious wolves and really passive sabrecats
Darius Hunter Jun 16 @ 4:38am 
Just started using this mod and it's great, but do the wolves and other predator species meant to run away from you? Because that is what I am getting here. XD
freetoll Jun 12 @ 11:09am 
when all the creatures don't show up i've found that they all go to the docks at castle volkihar, I dunno if this occurs with anyone else, if you need to find the animals then do the dawnguard quest with gunther, he'll track the bear and that'll take you to where all the animals are, use killall otherwise the game will severely lag, nice mod though

Skyrim Ultimate RPG Experience: All Expansions thanks you for your mod/mods made that have been implemented into the collection. It does require all the Skyrim expansions, but is composed of all the most promising mods ever made for Steam. Make sure to check it out at and don't forget to rate it.

I love your mod, my new character is a hunter , and its just awesome to travel skyrim and see so much different animals, it feels alive now , and so much hunting too, also there were one funny moment where black bear and dire wolf were searching for me together wile I was hiding and shooting arrows at them . Did they team up on me because of my actions? Or it was rare friendship between wolf and bear XD . Sorry for bad English. Hope you will add more new anymals soon, your mod is the best mod ever.
sgonya May 31 @ 9:20pm 
you should add like wolverines too cause their awesome and their like small bears
agnieha May 28 @ 1:27pm 
Why those fucken dire wolfs are sooooo weak? Can you make them stronger (more hp, dmg)?
Tycer Apr 12 @ 4:17am 
Direwolf a wolf but dire...
Tribble Apr 9 @ 5:54pm 
is this compatible with wolf retexture mods?
wolfhound2020 Apr 9 @ 7:17am 
Uuh... why does this mod change all merchants to have over 10K gold?
Tayzar983 Apr 8 @ 9:13pm 
I uninstalled and now half of the deer have broken animations :(
wolfhound2020 Apr 8 @ 3:28pm 
Like Blackwolf, I also had to edit the ESP to make the new furs craftable. There were weird issues like the beaver pelt leather recipe requiring a fox pelt.
wolfhound2020 Apr 8 @ 12:20am 
You changed the regular bears to american black bears? Would be nice if you could keep the brown bears and use a smaller bear model for the black bear. It would be nice to have both species since they both have made appearances in Tamriel before, as well as North Americs.

On wolf behavior, hopefully they still chase deer and the like. It would be neat if their aggression or lack thereof was related to their pack size as well.
sgonya Apr 6 @ 11:55am 
are there wild boars? yu should add some please
tommy61157 Apr 5 @ 9:18am 
I have tried constantly reinstalling the mod, using TESVEdit to clean it, changing the load order, EVERYTHING, but this mod refuses to work on my setup... I'm sorry, I really love this mod, but no matter what, It seems to crash my game every hour yet when I have all my other mods enabled and not this one, it works just fine, sorry, but I'm giving up on trying for this mod.
b.smith Mar 30 @ 1:35am 
well done for giving the wolf behavior that fits the truth and has nothing to do with red ridinghood. As a great fan of wolves I get fed up with seeing wolves shown as rabbid killers of all they meet. Am downloading the file now the wolf behavior made up my mind thx.
Blackwal| Mar 29 @ 10:52pm 
Any chance for a compatibility patch to be made for Skytest Realistic Animals?
Achilles5848 Mar 28 @ 11:39pm 
this mod has to be the best animal mod ive ever seen, the animals themselves are integrated into the game perfectly creating a great addition to skyrim
Cardboard-Werewolf Mar 28 @ 8:35pm 
I just downloaded this mod, and I'm just going to say that I am downright impressed with how smoothly the new species are intergrated into the game. Like, why didn't Bethesda just have these animals in the first place?!? Great job!
I'd love to see you do something with whales (maybe even narwhals?!? :D) and snakes in the future, if possible- both animals show up on the stones in ruins, and yet none are actually seen living in Skyrim. (Kind of like how you mentioned the pheasant dilemma; how are there pheasant breasts everywhere when the bird remains to be seen?) This is, of course, if you have the time and patience to make whale and snake models, both of which I would guess would be hard to rig due to not having legs, but I'm not a modder so I can only assume.
Anywho, amazing job so far, I'd love to see more from you in the future. :)
robosheep Mar 16 @ 6:10pm 
Love this mod so much wanna see more like tha leopards an hyeana's an maybe som more birds an fish 2 hunt. an yes maybe some more mega beasts like tha wooly rhino. plus u could give tha smiladon a better texture like in walking with beasts .. an can u make tha Couger more common cant find any 2 tame. (nerd fan) :D
sgonya Mar 15 @ 4:22pm 
why are dah wolves running away from me
t-macdonnell Mar 12 @ 10:32pm 
I also have a great idea, you should add to the game some Owls, Sea Gulls, Pelicans, and maybe even some Humming Birds that drop items too. Thanks.
Can someone tell me how to make the wolves attack me?
sgonya Feb 28 @ 9:45pm 
what about adding glyptodon to skyrim's Whiterun plains?
sgonya Feb 28 @ 9:44pm 
yu mean prehistoric animals like the marsupial lion and the diprotodon, or maybe perhaps the cave hyena and the deinotherium, megalania?
sgonya Feb 28 @ 9:39pm 
yeah but skyrim is fit for more of north american species of animals since skyrim is kind of like north america and its cold,your suggestion isnt a bad suggestion though,
Wolf of Slytherin Feb 26 @ 3:38pm 
Could you make a another one like this but maybe animals from Africa or South America to add even more animals to hunt? I love this mod!!
sgonya Feb 23 @ 1:43pm 
they should add more realistic giants that dont look the same each time, yu know what i mean
sgonya Feb 23 @ 1:42pm 
just in case yu dont know what megatherium are there a large type of ground sloth coated in thick brown fur and i think they lived in snowy forests and climate but did live in plains kind of like the Whiterun plain
