Read the mod description. Read the FAQ. You become thane when you purchase Breezehome.
BellaDovah Aug 23 @ 4:16pm 
Does this mean you can't become the thane of Whiterun then?

Vincent_Valeintine: Read the mod description. Read the FAQ. Try it for yourself.

PierreDespereaux: Read the mod description. Read the troubleshooting secdion.

Nukem: It's on my to-do list. It'll be easy to implement, once I can finally get around to it.

@Elvis Martini: Were you ever able to get the time of day option to work?
PierreDespereaux Aug 20 @ 5:46pm 
I'm having a strange problem where when I start a new game I'll immediately learn Fus and be summoned by the Greybeards.

Is anyone else having this problem or is it isolated to me?
Vincent_Valentine Aug 20 @ 3:25pm 
message me as soon as your able. thanks.
Vincent_Valentine Aug 20 @ 3:23pm 
is this mod compatiable with Alternate Start - Live another life? (the russian NON-DLC version)

I can't rate this because I've not subscribed to it. I'm using the manual download and Mod Organizer.

So instead I just wanted to say, "thanks for this!" in the comments. I love all the options you have. This is how it should be IMO. Giving the player the tools and possibilities to create their own starting point, story, etc.

I'm trying to uninstall this and when I unsubscribe and delete the files as soon as I start Skyrim is resubscribes and reinstalls the files? How do I stop this?
DragonSlayer673 Aug 18 @ 5:43pm 
@Epineapple yes, you can! The price is doubled, plus Lyida's your housecarl automatically when you get Breezehome
Epineapple Aug 18 @ 4:25pm 
Can you still become thane of whiterun and get lydia as a follower?
Elvis Martini  [author] Aug 13 @ 12:22pm 
Use with preexisting saves is not supported. Do so at your own risk. I've had people tell me that it works just fine, but the mod was not originally designed for it.
Rhys, that is all. Aug 13 @ 7:55am 
I'm confused. It says to not use with pre existing saves. Does that mean I cannot access my pre existing saves with the mod loaded, or just cant use the features?
Elvis Martini  [author] Aug 13 @ 1:42am 
Marx: I believe you can combine the two by placing Alternate Start after Skyrim Unbound in your load order. I have not tested this, however.
Marx Aug 12 @ 11:57pm 
Skyrim Unbound combined with Alternate Start would be awesome.

TheMightKamina: Try reading the instructions and the mod description.
TheMightyKamina Aug 12 @ 6:10pm 
When I start a new save, it gives me the helgen intro. Any idea on how to fix it anyone?
AltoChihuahua Aug 9 @ 3:28pm 
It actually did work. When I started a new game, I was able to use all the features of Skyrim Unbound, but not really any trace of Live Another Life. Except DAYMOYL, which worked fine.
AltoChihuahua Aug 9 @ 11:33am 
Hey, stupid question, but is this compatible with Alternate Start - Live Another Life?
dan 7 Aug 8 @ 4:19pm 
Awesome Mod

fox: It lets you use shouts without absorbing souls. It unlocks them automatically as you learn them.
{RDT-S} fox Aug 5 @ 5:00pm 
What does allow non dragon born shouts do?
Elvis Martini  [author] Aug 3 @ 6:51pm 
SonnyBoy1122: The FAQ explains why the vanilla start isn't an option.

PleasantCheese: You need to do some basic Skyrim mod troubleshooting. This isn't the place to get that kind of help.
SonnyBoy1122 Aug 3 @ 6:30pm 
PheasantCheese: It might be one of your mods need updated, or you need to update Skyrim
SonnyBoy1122 Aug 3 @ 6:28pm 
Elvis Martini: You should make it an option.
PleasantCheese Aug 3 @ 5:05pm 
i have a problem.. my skyrim game is just stuck at the menu screen with music playing and no options after i click new game... i have done verything in the trouble shooting list and it still does it could anyone help?
Elvis Martini  [author] Aug 3 @ 4:28pm 
MeltingAbyss254: You don't. That's why it's an alternate start mod. See the FAQ.
Spongebob Squarepants Aug 3 @ 1:52pm 
how do you do the normal beginning if you have this mod? The one where you're about to be executed?
Elvis Martini  [author] Jul 29 @ 11:08pm 
See the FAQ.
SonnyBoy1122 Jul 29 @ 10:20pm 
This mod is better than the Alternate Start mod on the Nexus. But why was unbound removed from the Nexus?
Nukem962001 Jul 27 @ 5:45pm 
@Suctorial I have had this mod for, what feels like years, and I have gone through the Dawnguard DLC a lot. I have yet to experience any issues with Durnehviir. Are you sure there isn't a mod conflict?
Shadower Z0 Jul 27 @ 12:17pm 
Awesome Mod. Really gives me the roleplay experience I'm looking for. Thanks!
Electric Eel Jul 23 @ 4:54pm 
This is one of the most useful things ever. I just want to start a new character to try a new class but the openings take like 2 hours I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH :D
Suctorial Jul 23 @ 9:01am 
Just saying, I had no issues using this on an existing character until the Durnehviir ecounter. Simply disabling the mod for that fight fixed this issue.

Woah, that thumbnail used to be my wallpaper, just without the text

Dolby Virtual SoundBlaster MIDI Surround 12.9.
Kommander KurkSchweg Jul 13 @ 8:56pm 
Cool what kind of sound system does it have?
Caaros, The King of Chaos Jul 10 @ 12:19pm 
Sorry, I looked right over that in the description.
Caaros, The King of Chaos Jul 10 @ 12:18pm 
Thank you.
Elvis Martini  [author] Jul 10 @ 12:10pm 
Caaros: Purchase Breezehome.
Caaros, The King of Chaos Jul 10 @ 11:55am 
Question, is there any way to get Lydia as a follower, since the quest that gives the title of thane in Whiterun is not available?
owlflyer17 Jul 3 @ 3:34pm 
@Jiggle Me Timbers. I had the same exact problem as you. then i reread the description and it said put the mod as far down on the load order as possible. i thought it said as high up. I move the mod to the complete bottom of my load order and now it works perfectly
Elvis Martini  [author] Jun 30 @ 9:01am 
Follow the steps in the troubleshooting section of the mod description.

For some reason, I get a problem when I try to start a new game, the menu options go away, but the menu background stays with the music playing, just sitting there. Music still playing, same problem I have with Live Another Life. It may be the same files that are fucking your mod in the anus, but the files aren't there. It was something related to MQ101 or some shit, I use MO if there is any importance there.
Elvis Martini  [author] Jun 30 @ 12:18am 
Running with all other mods disabled, I cannot reproduce the problem. I've been told (and I think I once confirmed) that Immersive Armors was responsible.
Ben Jun 29 @ 11:27pm 
I love this mod. Minor issue though: Ulfric Stormcloak is now perma gagged. he still talks, but the image is there and I'm not sure how to remove it from his face.

Love this mod, requires no dlc, easy to use, easy to understand. I really love the simplicity even though there are so many choices, just perfect.
Quintonrda1988 Jun 28 @ 5:41pm 
Will do
Thank You
Elvis Martini  [author] Jun 28 @ 5:36pm 
If you're unsure, place it before Skyrim Unbound in your load order.
