Baconman117: I can't guarantee that it won't. It really depends on what point you're at in the main questline. The rule of thumb with Skyrim modding is that if you add or remove any mod, you should start a new game.

Will uninstalling this after starting a game with it cause issues?

Finley: That would take far too much time and effort on my part and would require editing parts of the game that I'd rather not touch. You're better off using the console to give yourself the masks you can't get otherwise when not playing as the Dragonborn, or look for mods that put them in different places.
Mr. Finley Jan 27 @ 1:17pm 
I know that currently it is impossible to get all dragon priest masks. Would you consider(Not sure if its hard) adding something like a courier that would bring you the final mask once you've gathered all the others(I think there's only one from the main quest). Like a "gift from a scholar" or something.

Just downloaded zip to use with mod organizer. So far I'm very impressed by the work. I really hope it can give me an immersive elven mage.

I did a little digging, and it turns out LOOT is BOSS. It's from the same people, and is a replacement/updated version.

I will probably add a second link to it, but since I have no idea where it places Skyrim Unbound in relation to other mods which might conflict with it, it'll be difficult to fully endorse.
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 25 @ 8:00pm 
The overwhelming concensus of people who are (or at least apear to be) much more on the ball than I, is that LOOT is far superior to BOSS. You should go to the forums and see for your self. I'm sure there are people there much more qualified and able to explain it than I am.
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 25 @ 8:00pm 
I'm far from expert in these things. All I can say is LOOT seems to put it in the right place, as everything is working correctly. Right now in my list, Unbound is 43rd out of 70. Below Cidna Mine Expanded, and above wiz Dynamic Things. It is also below SkyRe main(30), and above SkyRe races(59), which are the only two I think even touch the same stuff as Unbound might.

From what I've gathered, BOSS only compares your load order list to other lists people have entered into it. LOOT is a program that actually looks at the individual mods and sees what they do/how they work and sorts them for each person. It also tells you about conflicts and if you are missing something you need in order to use a certain mod(like SKSE, or SkyUI).
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 25 @ 3:24pm 
I understand that, but I'm still skeptical of it. If you are a LOOT user, can you confirm that it puts Skyrim Unbound in the correct position?
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 25 @ 11:38am 
LOOT is the replacement for BOSS, which hasn't been supported for quite some time now. They work differently too. BOSS was user compiled lists, but LOOT actually looks at the mods and tells you about conflicts and such. Check out the main Skyrim forum here. There are several good threads with modding advice that can explain it better than I can.

Does LOOT put Skyrim Unbound in the correct load order?
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 25 @ 7:56am 
The Troubleshooting section could use an update. Swap BOSS for LOOT.

Follow the steps in the troubleshooting section of the mod description.

i have played this mod for months and now it's not working i have not downloaded any new mods so i don't know what could be causing the problem
Newe6000 Jan 19 @ 10:14pm 
I would also like to note that if you use open cities skyrim and select to start within one of the cities behind walls, you'll start within the empty seprate worldspace and be stuck there. I ended up uninstalling open cities anyway because of the mega lag issues surrounding city loading.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 19 @ 5:56pm 
Thanks for letting me know which one caused your issue.
Newe6000 Jan 19 @ 4:39pm 
Taking it up with that mod author. Doubt it will be fixed though, as those mods seem to be completely incompatible with alternative start mods.
Newe6000 Jan 19 @ 4:32pm 
Tested for conflicts and it seems that the Amazing Race Tweaks mods cause the bug if used with unbound.

Newe6000: Follow the steps in the troubleshooting section of the mod description.
Newe6000 Jan 18 @ 9:59pm 
Additional info: I use LOOT for sorting and I can get the 'new' button to work by unselecting the mod in the mod panel of the default launcher. When I do this the default helgen into plays. I haven't tried to see if anything is broken due to the mod being disabled and not removed (as per the suggestion of the stickied thread).
Newe6000 Jan 18 @ 9:54pm 
Whenever this mod is active the new button on the menu doesn't work. Clicking it causes all the other main menu UI elements to dissapear, leaving you stuck on a screen with just the smoke and skyrim emblem.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 17 @ 6:53am 
Mr. Shaggnificent: Good suggestion! I'll add it to the to-do list.

SlobbyPanda: I'll double-check them and get back to you.
SlobbyPanda Jan 17 @ 5:13am 
Great Mod, love it. However Orc Stronghold starting locations do not work (don't have any options to choose)
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 17 @ 12:09am 
I've been meaning to ask for a long time, but I only ever think of it while setting up just before character creation;

Full Fur Armor(the long sleave body one) as an outfit option. It would be perfect for those of us using Frostfall. There is a random chance of it if we choose the light or bandit options, but with out the full exposure protection guarenteed, I'm hesitant to use most of the 'out of town' start locations.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 14 @ 6:50am 
You can't, this mod doesn't support the original start.
Burritodynamite Jan 14 @ 6:29am 
How do i start a normal game (when im on a carriage on my way to Helgen)
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 12 @ 6:09am 
Groovy. I was unsure because they both mess with some of the same bits, and that often leads to troubles. I'll give it a try.

I just want to say again how awesome this mod is. I honestly would have walked away long ago with out it. Thank you.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 12 @ 3:20am 
It's as compatible as any other mod. I've never been able to figure out whether or not CWO is inherently buggy or not, but I'm currently using it myself.
Mr.Shaggnificent Jan 11 @ 7:31pm 
I love this mod, and probably wouldn't still be playing Skyrim without it(I hate the dragons soooo much). I was wondering, is this mod is compatible with the Civil War Overhaul mod? I tried looking at the nexus page, but he blathers on endlessly.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 9 @ 1:58pm 
I recommend Timing is Everything, although the Dragonborn quest might start early if you don't set it up properly. I've had issues with that at random times. (Not sure if it's triggered by level or not.)
RGDelta Jan 9 @ 1:41pm 
One last question what about timing is everything the mod that allows you to adjust quest levels for alot of quests any issues with that or not just asking as I am preparing a whole new Skyrim Playthrough and redoing all my mods and highly considering trying this one over Live another Life. I feel this is better for immersion/RP then LoL (even though that is a great mod)

Plesio Digger: You get Lydia as a housecarl when you purchase Breezehome.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 9 @ 12:22pm 
I have experienced no conflicts with The Choice is Yours, but I have never tested it with any Helgen mods. I believe I was told that it works with Helgen Reborn, but you'd just have to start a new game and try it out. Sorry that I don't have any more information.

If you do test it out, let me know what the results are.
RGDelta Jan 9 @ 10:58am 
I have always used LoL (even though 90% of the time I did helgen) my questions are this first will this work with The Choice is yours mod also when you start the main quest (I read about that) how does it handle the Helgen sitution looking at possibly using Helgen Reborn and wanted to know how this mod handles Helgen story wise.
Plesio Digger Jan 7 @ 11:12am 
I like this mod alot, but where is Lydia? I can't find her in Dragonsreach and I don't own Breezehome.
kbimbo Jan 4 @ 2:35am 
I like this mod because it gives you more freedom than the regular game. Other than doing the same old intro , you choose what you do.
☁ϟ#cornhuskϟ☁ Jan 2 @ 5:44am 
nvm I just got rid of a whole bunch of mods I had 108 now I have 36.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Jan 2 @ 5:40am 
You'll just have to follow the steps in the troubleshooting section.
☁ϟ#cornhuskϟ☁ Jan 2 @ 5:23am 
I have this issue where it never loads the beginning part and then if I use coc to teleport it randomizes all my settings and never brings up the race menu and if I try to drop some of my stuff it crashes my game. Please help me! If you do not get back to me soon enough I will probably unsubscribe from everything delete all my saves and start over.

jabberfish: I've had problems myself where Hadvar is found in strange places. I have yet to pinpoint the source of the problem. When I playtest Skyrim Unbound, he's where he's supposed to be at game start, in his house, in Riverwood. Eventually he winds up other places, and I'm not sure why.
jabberfish Jan 1 @ 3:57am 
I've visited Helgen a few times now and, while it is in its burnt-down state, Hadvar is always there instead of bandits. Is this a mod conflict? Everything else has worked great so far.
Sithis Dec 30, 2014 @ 5:19pm 
the picture is hilarious.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Dec 29, 2014 @ 12:30am 
You can still travel to Solstheim. The Dragoborn quest *shouldn't* trigger, but it might.
bloodsplatBOOM Dec 28, 2014 @ 10:17pm 
Excuse me for my idiocy, but I would assume that if you choose to not be the Dragonborn, then the starting Quest for the Dragonborn DLC won't trigger. Two questions: 1, is this true and 2, if so, is there another way to get to Solstheim?
chinagreenelvis  [author] Dec 27, 2014 @ 12:25am 
Jacob: use BOSS or LOOT to sort your load order. Move Skyrim Unbound as close to the bottom as possible.
Jacob Shade Dec 27, 2014 @ 12:18am 
Dissonance, out of curiosity, do you remember what the problematic mod was? I have over 600 mods to go through to find the problem and after ensuring that 47 of them are safe, I decided I'd ask in hopes that you could save me a few days.
chinagreenelvis  [author] Dec 26, 2014 @ 2:59pm 
Dissonance: LOL, it's no problem, at least you were detailed in your description of what went wrong. Most people just say "it doesn't work" or "How do I open the MCM?"

assassin: You can still learn spells from books even if you didn't select any primary or secondary magic choices in the Skyrim Unbound menu.
assassin132132 Dec 26, 2014 @ 9:02am 
Hey can anyone tell me how to enable useage of magic after you have created character?
Dissonance Dec 26, 2014 @ 5:02am 
It was exactly as you said. I profusely apologize for taking up your time with such a trivial matter due to my lack of intellect. Thank you chinagreenelvis. I wish you the best and have a happy new year.
