Crowded Cities (v5)

This mod adds tons of new NPC's to Solitude (more holds will gradually be added!) that will roam the streets! During the day nobles, farmers, and regular citizens will walk the streets, occasionally stopping by shops and merchants to browse wares and then go to their designated rest area. At night the scum of the city will come out of their inns and roam the city.
Each day of the week a different npc comes into Solitude, be it a traveler, a merchant, or a few Thalmor agents checking in on Solitude's Temple of The Divines.


-30 npc's added to the Solitude city

-some npc's come on certain days of the week

-each npc has several different paths to take and picks them completely randomly

-certain npc's come out in the day and some in the night

-most npc's have unique names based on their race

Where is the mod for other cities?

I've traced this mod to more than a few issues. If you've had some NPCs not leading you, or just general glitchiness, dont load this mod and I think you'll see an improvement. It's an annoying bug, and unfortunate because I really like this mod, but it made some big quests unplayable.

This mod messed up my solitude. After a while, everyone stayed in The Winking Skeever. My wife and children also lived in solitude during the time, so they all stayed there too. No matter what time of daay it was, no one was outside. I deleted the mod. The extra people disappeared, but the regular people of Solitude stayed indoors in their one spot. I also moved my family back to Heljarchen Hall. When I fast travelled there, my one child and wife ran all the way back to Solitude, into the Winking Skeever, and stood at their old spot. My other child staays inside Heljarchen Hall in one spot and if I push him, he will run back to the one spot. My children now all live in Heljarchen Hall, but they don't move out of that one spot. It's really annoying me.

Mod is dead, when you load you get a popup message saying it's missing files. Too bad, was a great idea.

=( its dead ? but.. (sigh). This is a great game but holy crap does it lack a population. I find it funny how there is all these farms and mills and so much open world space but not many people... Its sometimes hard to believe Skyrim is at risk of any viable threat sometimes considering Dragons can't attack the major cities where most of the "elite inhabitants" reside lol,yes I realize why this would be hard to pulloff without the a huge loss in performance but even so. Im not trying to argue lore here but long story short the population should be bigger (imo) and most should reside outside the walls if only for the sake of a better over all Imersive game... Anyhow back to the point I hope this mod comes back!

Yeah, I was hoping that this was for ALL holds. Not just for Solitude.
