this isn't very good, i feel at times i've been detected when i shouldn't have. I can be at the side, not moving at all, completely in the dark, and they can still see me.

i read this mod description in a whispered voice.

It uses the game lighting and sounds mechanincs for detection, so I believe anything that would affect those would also affect this mod's behaviour. Personally, I use RLO/RLFX for my realistic lighting mods and they work well along with this mod.
otakurebel 29 dic 2013, ore 7:07 
Does this work with any particular realistic lighting modifiers I wonder?

This would make my game worse. I have the first sneaking perk to 3/whatever the max is and somehow the enemies can hear and see me through stone walls.

Whats the mod with that bikini looking armour?
Raven 24 ott 2013, ore 9:40 
Sounds good, thanks. :)
Vampaerr  [autore] 24 ott 2013, ore 9:29 
no, the enemy doesnt die.. that is all ))
Raven 24 ott 2013, ore 9:18 
The locational damage sounds like I would prefer it of the two, does it completely crash the game or just glitch a little when it doesn't work?
Vampaerr  [autore] 24 ott 2013, ore 9:13 
there is a mod called locational damage that adds that feature.. it doesnt always work, but does work most of the time.. there is also another mod called sneak tools, that provides some interesting ideas to sneak play
Raven 24 ott 2013, ore 9:08 
Head shots? That's a whole new good idea, I figured that was only a Fallout thing. Thanks for the tip. :)
Vampaerr  [autore] 24 ott 2013, ore 8:23 
well, to fix that you need to wait for Bethesda to make a new Elder Scrolls game.
and shooting a guy on the face and see him speak normally is even more funny.. download a mod that makes shots in the face deadly.
Raven 24 ott 2013, ore 1:37 
Ah, yes, I shoot a guy in the face from my hiding spot, he looks around for a while, muses for a bit and concludes... "Must have been the wind." Sadly, it's more funny to me because I'm *not* joking!

Nice mod. but it's too hard for sneak :P
NotAlchemic 20 giu 2013, ore 8:04 
I feel like this mod has potential and I'd like to see it a little bit better, not just more difficult. Like maybe let us turn off those fire bowls in dungeons and towns? It's cool, the lighting concept, but right now it's just too difficult and I don't feel sneaky. I just feel like a big fat hamburger rolling around guards and getting caught..

It reminds me on the the Thief series. Great job, just what I needed. Thanks! :D
PURIFIER 1 apr 2013, ore 9:27 
if your not gonna fix this mod, make mod that makes sneaking easier, it should fix this
Julius Caesar 10 mar 2013, ore 9:03 
Because of what the player below said I unsubscribed from your mod. FIX IT please.
PURIFIER 28 feb 2013, ore 6:20

Vampaerr  [autore] 16 feb 2013, ore 21:43 
Idk, haven't tested it with Dragonborn DLC yet
Torinsoul 16 feb 2013, ore 21:12 
Crasshnbrun@Have you tested the dragonborn dlc with sneak ?I can stand right in front of some one wile sneak and they dont even see me just like vanilla skyrim.I don't have any problems with dawngraud or any where in skryrm.But how ever in dragonbron dlc it dosnt seem to be working form.So if you wouldnt mind looking into this if you all ready havn't it would really help thanks.

I had to completely uninstall and reinstall Skyrim to get rid of the effects of this mod, and even then I wasn't 100% sure the stealth detection in the game was back to normal. (I ended up scrapping that save entirely and going back to a save from almost a month prior, long before I installed this mod.) My character was regularly detected at long range and through walls, even though he had 100 Sneak and every perk in the Sneak tree maxed out.
Vampaerr  [autore] 16 feb 2013, ore 19:04 
It's compatible with any DLC released and to be released unless they change the core values of sneaking which I doubt they will.
KILLALLROBOTS! 16 feb 2013, ore 16:19 
This isn't compatible with Dragonborn? Dammit! This is the only sneak mod I've found on steam and the nexus so far!
Torinsoul 13 feb 2013, ore 14:04 
I have had no problems with this mod but, Author can you please make this dragonbron compatible ?
Stormbow 1 feb 2013, ore 13:45 
I don't know what's up with this mod, but ever since I used it and completely uninstalled it (because of the 100% chance of being detected in pretty much every situation possible even with 100 Stealth), the game still does not let me sneak past damn near anything, even at long range.
Sp♠de 23 dic 2012, ore 9:23 
does it support the water arrow mod to stay in the dark?
Gord0n 17 dic 2012, ore 10:27 
I will try this out with my mage. Quiet Casting plus sneaking just feels like cheating atm. I tried out Duel which made my mage a 1-hit for everything, looked at Path of Shadows which seems to make it too hardcore for a mage character but seems awesome as a thief. Your mod seems to be what I'm looking for, for my purposes.

Here's a link to my mod in case you were curious...

SKS 20 nov 2012, ore 0:42 
Ah, okay, cool, thanks.

Also, to solve the Falmer issue, search the Object window for AbFalmer and you will find in there that the magnitude of their blindness is set to 80. Upping it to 100 might solve the issue with them.

If you change that I might be better off using your mod than my own because you've probably worked on it longer and understand the sneak values better than me. I just made my mod because I thought there was no good sneak mods at the time until I found yours.
Vampaerr  [autore] 19 nov 2012, ore 23:51 
I've changed several of those values, pretty sure the same ones you've found on your CK. I also gave a penalty to the use of torchs and light spells in your sneak values but I added a bonus to very dark areas aswell.
SKS 19 nov 2012, ore 16:03 
Hi Crashburn.

I've created a similar mod myself, just by tweaking some of the variables listed when you put 'sneak' as the search string in the CK Gameplay > Settings.

I compared your changes with the vanilla values, and the only change I could find was the fSneakLightMult had been changed from 0.33 to 2.05. Am I correct in my finding that it is the only change?

It is certainly an important change, since it makes light much more exposing, and thus sneak becomes more difficult and player's must employ more wit and care in their stealth movement. I had actually thought fSneakLightMult pertained to light armor (silly me).

I tweaked more than just the one variable in my sneak mod. But now I have learned the 'Light' variables pertain to visibility in a lit area, I will have to make some changes.

Please answer my above question. Thanks a lot!
Vampaerr  [autore] 15 ott 2012, ore 20:48 
It's the light source level from the original game engine that matters, I also use RLwC and it's still fairly accurate. Corridors by themselves do not trigger anything, it's just the light sources in them such as torches, embers, lamps, etc pretty much any light counts, even equipped spells would give you away in the darkness. (depends on the distances aswell)
CurtisNewton 14 ott 2012, ore 8:44 
what exactly is meant with lit corridors? is the level of light menaingful or are there corridors that trigger detewction fast than others? what if one uses a Lighting Mod - like RLwC?
Mouthrot (Tame) 10 ott 2012, ore 8:54 
I really liked this one and it originally was a great and fun challenge! but once your sneak reaches 80 or so you can do the same bullshit you could before, like sneaking right in front of people in a lit room, haha. But I think that's a skyrim issue, not an issue with your mod.

Like I said, this was a fun challenge. Well done!

Falmer are blind but their other senses are acute.
jaenak 1 set 2012, ore 21:02 
I love the concept of your mod however the execution of the idea has gone to the extreme in favor of realism. I agree that Bethesda's execution of sneaking is unrealistic but your mod on the other hand makes it next to impossible to do any sneaking outside a pitch black dungeon. There needs to be a happy medium between unrealistic but easy and realistic but almost impossible.
Ymir 24 ago 2012, ore 11:51 
That's strange, the Falmer seemed pretty blind to me. As long as you stay far enough away it seems they can't detect you.
The Aleks 20 ago 2012, ore 0:02 
While I agree that the Falmer issue should probably be a priority fix, I have always wondered about how utterly senseless (not just blind) they seem to be...I would have expected that in "real life" they'd be more dangerous and harder to elude, in many ways, than an enemy with standard sight. They'd have likely evolved a very keen sense of hearing (which is how I assume they can tell where you are at all), and a very keen sense of smell. And the thing about smell is that it's kinda hard to hide. Shadows don't really have a deodorant quality, do they? I've also been wondering about all the bows and arrows you find on them...I mean...seriously.
Socrathustra 19 lug 2012, ore 14:43 
I would've downloaded your mod except for Abdulaziz677's comment. If you address these two issues, consider me subscribed.
Agriphal 13 lug 2012, ore 5:31 
I liked your mod so much I added it to my permanent collection; http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=72755638 ...to help spread the word of your good work.
anandamaypax 10 lug 2012, ore 4:35 
I must thank you for your excellent mod. It is a no-brainer for anyone playing Skyrim on PC and it really enhanced my Skyrim experience profoundly. I was so impressed with your mod that I decided to add it to my permanent collection: The Intrepid Skyrim. Please rate and fave if you like it (and even if you don’t). Here’s the link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=75736622
Squelchie the Boywonder 8 lug 2012, ore 9:16 
This is good except for 2 problems. The Aura Whisper shout gets you Detected and Falmer are not blind.
frutti 21 giu 2012, ore 15:13 
Very well done! no more hack'n slash in donjons (with Duel and other enhanced difficulty mods fits very well)
