NPC Schedules
Is it me, or do NPCs in Skyrim have only the most basic schedules? Can't seem to rely on them to do anything regularly or normally. (eg, being up cooking at 2am instead of sleeping, like you'd expect from an NPC that works at a market stall in the day) Oblivion NPCs were so much more reliable. :/ (and the constant Hired Thug attacks are starting to make these Thieves Guild Jobs more trouble than they're worth)

Lotsa NPCs are just given generic sandboxing AI as their package, which is just something that has a list of wandering, sleeping and eating, which seem to go off semi-randomly.

So yeah, they are lazy in their schedule >:O

It would be neat if somebody went through and made manual schedules for most of the NPCs, but that'd be absurd amounts of work, and would conflict with sooooo many other mods >.<.

Might be "absurd amounts of work", but it's something they definitely did in Oblivion. Even Morrowind seemed to have more fully-scheduled NPCs.

Oh, well, back to waiting for the only NPC on this floor of the New Gnisis Cornerclub in Windhelm to stop eating in full vew of the strongbox I have to raid and go do something else. She's been sitting there eating for at least 4 hours now. :/ *sigh*
