Compatibility


Note: Only Skyrim patch version 1.9.32.0.8 and above is supported!


As is the way with modding, if two mods alter the same thing/area, there will be a mod conflict. The result can be something small, like one mod's item prices show but not the other's, or the conflict could be huge, like two mods that alter a game skill tree; only one of the changes will show in the game. I have tried to keep a record of notable issues that come up when using Hunting in Skyrim along with other mods.


Below you'll find that information split into sections as follows:
  • Mod Features attempts to inform you of things my mod does that could affect other mods in general.
  • General Mods gives a list of notable issues with specific mods.
  • Animal / Wildlife Changing Mods is a specific list of mods that alter animals in notable ways.
  • Notes discussing certain results from creature mods.

If you don't see a mod here listed it's likely because I don't know of any issues that could come up. So rather than ask me (and get an "I don't know" answer) test it yourself and let me know the outcome. If you find an incompatibility please let me know so I can write it here. 



Mod Features

Various features in this mod may cause problems with mods that do similar things. Below you'll find some advice on these.


Animal Loot

Animal Loot

Skinning & Carcass system should be compatible with mods that alter animal loot, as you gain animal loot when you skin your carcass. Mods such as Real Wildlife Skyrim that add extra animal loot, these will be received when a carcass is skinned.

Pelts/Hides/Leather Prices

All versions of Hunting in Skyrim will conflict with any mods that alter the stats of Pelts, Hides, Leather and Leather Strips. Not hard, more of a soft conflict. Pelts/Hides/Leather have had their stats like prices altered by my mod.

Due to the way that mod load order works, if you have a mod that changes the stats of an animal pelt for example, if that mod loads further down the list than Hunting in Skyrim, then that mod's changes will take priority. Most of the time no problem will arise, it'll just be the prices my mod changes won't take affect.


Levelled Lists (applies to version 1.3.6 and above)

Levelled Actors

Due to edits to certain Levelled Actors you need to create a Bashed Patch using Wrye Bash so that mods that also edit the same objects will have these references merged together.


Skinning & Carcass Systems

Skinning Systems

Skinning systems will likely conflict with other similar skinning system mods. You have a power in game (cast with your shout key) to turn the skinning system on and off. Known mods that will conflict are Hunterborn. See below for details.

Mods that add new animals to the game may not work with my stat tracking, kill tracking, or skinning systems, depending on the attributes (such as Race) the animal has. I am currently working on a list of conditions that must be met for animals to work with my systems. This can then be used by other modders to ensure their creatures work with Hunting in Skyrim. 


Stat Tracking / Kill Tracking

Mod Added Animals

Mods that add new animals to the game may not work with my stat tracking, kill tracking, or skinning systems, depending on the attributes (such as Race) the animal has. I am currently working on a list of conditions that must be met for animals to work with my systems. This can then be used by other modders to ensure their creatures work with Hunting in Skyrim. 


Perks

Perk Tree Edits

The normal version of this mod will conflict with any mods that alter the Archery and Light Armour skill trees. A No Perks version is available to counter this. No perk tree version should be fully compatible with any mod that alters perks and skill trees. Although in the No Perks version (if you use SKSE) you can unlock perks, this does not interfere with the skill trees.

Generally if you use a mod that changes the above perk trees, use the No Perks version. For example if you use Asis, Ace, Frostfall or Skyre.



General Mods

Any known/specific compatibility details are listed below. General comments are listed at the bottom.


Ebonvale

If you use Ebonvale you must load that mod after mine in your load order. A compatibility patch is in the works to fix the floating land that these mods create together.


Falskaar

Compatible with the wildlife found in Falskaar.


Official Skyrim Downloadable Content

Compatible with all official DLC - DawnguardHearthfireDragonborn.


Open Cities Skyrim

If you use Open Cities Skyrim, then Hunting in Skyrim.esp must be loaded before Open Cities Skyrim in your load order. BOSS will sort this automatically.


Re-Proccer

I don't know much about this, but if you have any issues creating a patch for this and Hunting in Skyrim, add my mod to the exceptions list.


Whiterun Changing Mods

Generally any mod that changes Whiterun should be loaded after my mod in your load order. Each mod may be different though, so just test which works best for your setup.


Unique Unique - Artifact Enchantment Overhauls

This mod has a story manager event quest node for Kill Actor that doesn't have the "shares event" box ticked, causing it to stop my kill tracking and skinning systems from working. I have contacted the author and if it gets changed will alter this info.



Animal & Wildlife Changing Mods

Hunterborn

If you use Hunterborn, make sure you play with my skinning system turned off (when it becomes available). Quest issues as follows:

During the quest It All Starts With a Wolf, ensure you choose Manual Loot when activating the goat.

During the skinning tutorial quest There's More Than One Way to Skin a... ensure you choose Manual Loot when activating the Deer.


Real Wildlife Skyrim

Compatible. Generally any creature "variations" such as Wolves and Bears should work with my systems, as most have the vanilla race and/or voice types.


Skyrim Immersive Creatures

Certain animals and creatures in this mod may not be "seen" by my stat tracking, kill tracking, or skinning systems. Generally any creature "variations" such as Wolves and Bears should work with my systems, as most have the vanilla race and/or voice types. See notes below.

I am currently working on a list of conditions that must be met for animals to work with my systems. This can then be used by other modders to ensure their creatures work with Hunting in Skyrim.


Skyrim Monster Mod

Certain animals and creatures in this mod may not be "seen" by my stat tracking, kill tracking, or skinning systems. Generally any creature "variations" such as Wolves and Bears should work with my systems, as most have the vanilla race and/or voice types.

Some animals such as Scamps will be skinned and/or stat tracked by their given race, which for a Scamp is a Falmer. See notes below.

I am currently working on a list of conditions that must be met for animals to work with my systems. This can then be used by other modders to ensure their creatures work with Hunting in Skyrim.


SkyTEST - Realistic Animals and Predators

Should be fully compatible, except some animals such as Rats will be skinned and/or stat tracked by their given race, which for a Rat is a Skeever. Generally any creature "variations" such as Wolves and Bears should work with my systems, as most have the vanilla race and/or voice types. See notes below.

Trophy Hunting

Mostly compatible.



Notes

As new animals and creatures added by mods (by new I mean completely new, not a copy of existing animals likes Wolves) sometimes use existing vanilla Skyrim data like race and voice type, they may be skinned and/or stat tracked as their vanilla counterparts. This is because my mod uses that data to distinguish which animals are which.

In the above example used for Skyrim Monster Mod, it adds a new creature called a Scamp (as featured in previous Elder Scrolls games). This Scamp, although completely new, uses both the Falmer race and Falmer voice type. As such my mod systems will see it as a Falmer creature.

Although this is not an issue for stat tracking as such (because that won't interfere with the creature), as I only track the stats for existing animal types in the Log Book anyway, this could be an issue for animals that can be skinned. For animals that use existing data that can be skinned, that animal will be skinned like it's vanilla counterpart.

For the Realistic Skinning system this is not an issue in terms of what you get off that animal as its inventory is simply transferred to the player. Except if the player has the Clean Skinning ability, which means the second pelt they receive is governed by relevant race and voice typeThis can however be an issue for the Carcass Skinning system. You won't get an insert-unique-creature-name-here carcass obviously, but whichever carcass is given by its race and/or voice type.

Details on the specific requirements for animal recognition can be found on the Compatibility for Mod Authors page here.
