Doughnut, Lord of Friendship: Just got this mod and yes, it is a great idea and can be fun, but honestly
most of the time it is hell. Seriously, it is so incredibly difficult and
feels like it is made for people who are at least level 25 and up. It is
honestly one of the most frustrating experiences ever because I had to
start a new game to even use the mod which is fine, but then it should be
obvious to the creator that whoever is going to use this is going to be low
level. The mod throws massive amounts of enemies at you in every town you
attack or defend, and usually, you are left with only a few allies to help
you attack about what seems like hundreds of enemies. I'm currently stuck
attacking falkreath which wouldnt be so difficult if the mod didnt include
8 foot tall behemoth men in ebony armor with massive shields that they dont
seem to ever stop blocking with. Its ridiculous and I also question the
realism of it. I mean there are dozens of these guys and how is the
imperial armor affording these huge ebony clad giant dudes. Seriously, ive
had to cheat armor and gear and download a mod that lets me have more
followers for myself just to move on through the damn story on the lowest
difficulty. I really want to love this mod because it does something really
cool and new, but the creator needs to know, there is a difference between
challenging and impossible.
RaijinHanshi: Ulfric is the true high king of Skyrim! Down with the Empire.
Gideon Horwitz: Great mod but come on guys storm cloak mages come on we all know nords hat
magic wolves I can understand and sells words but giants it is a great
overhaul nod but the creators should think about what is part of the lore
and makes sense rather than what looks cool
Stinky Buttface: Hey guys, I just wanted to pop on here and to warn people away from this
mod. It is extremely buggy and has a high chance to ruin your Civil War
quest line completely. I installed this mod following the directions
exactly (and had ZERO other mods activated at the time of playing this mod
just so I could make absolutely sure there would be no conflicts). The
quests bug out constantly, you have to progress the Civil War with console
commands almost every single battle/fort siege. It is completely not worth
it. Honestly, I regret installing this on my brand new play through and
wish I could just go back and play vanilla Civil War now. I know this guy's
description page might be "witty" and "funny", and I know the concept of
what this mod is supposed to do seems cool, but it doesn't work. Anyone
telling you that they have gone through this entire mod with no issues
isn't telling you the truth. Look at the forum section of the mod itself if
you don't believe me, the author locked all comments and all you see are
hundreds of pages of people reporting problems and how they are stuck and
how this mod broke their Civil War quest line. After console commanding my
way through every battle (that wouldn't start or end properly) I am now
stuck on the last battle for Solitude that just won't start. Don't believe
the hype of this mod, and please, don't do what I did by thinking "Wow, all
these idiots must just not know how to install/configure/follow
directions". Because as I said, I followed everything to an exact T and
this mod is still completely broken. If you follow the mod authors
"checklist" and answer all of his questions before posting an issue to the
forums (when they weren't locked) he will just blame it on you, even if you
tell him no other mods are even installed and you followed all directions
exactly. He attempts to use witty come backs and remarks to make fun of the
users who try to have some fun by downloading his mod. Stay away. Once
again, don't do what I did and think "Well I know ill get it to work! This
guy just did something wrong". Trust me, stay away.
Portgas D. Ace: DO NOT install this mod. It is horrid and filled with bugs. The second you
step outside a keep it will be stolen.
Scallty Demon: So, does anybody know if this mod is being fixed or anything? Does anybody
know of some other good Civil War mods?
This just looks like such a great mod, but I keep hearing its a super buggy
xXDarksoulXx01: sadly, the decreption of the mod is better than the mod itself (glitches
GiggityUrSelf: This mod is terribly buggy and will 100% without fail ruin your save game,
despite what the author says. Although you're supposed to install it with a
new save so you're not losing that much, but still.
This mod also disregards the lore tremendously, particularly in the "racial
diversity" of the Stormcloaks. Also non-"white" Nords don't make any sense
either but that one's kind of on Bethesda in the first place for pandering
to liberals who would get butt hurt about "muh lack of diversity" (there
are freaking cat people = otherkin, the freak more do you want?). But that's
a discussion for another time. The giants are lore friendly, however, the
mod lacks a quest or even an explanation of how they sided with the
Stormcloaks. The wolves are just freaking stupid, you'd use a domesticated
dog if anything, not a wild animal that would just turn on your if it got
hungry. There are also these weird Imperial soldiers that are like 1.3* the
size of a regular Tamriel race. They're like steroid juggernaut super
soldiers or whatever, I'm pretty sure that's not lore friendly. If the
author wanted the Imperial army to have soldiers that were tanks, he should
have just made them Orcs clad in heavy armor with a heavy shield with a lot
Anyway, again, the battles are buggy and frankly not that exciting. If
you're too high a level, you're just smacking enemy soldiers in the face
and killing them in one hit like they're nothing or if you're too low a
level you get gang raped in a matter of seconds.
0/10 mod would not recommend at all.
Jd Cunningham: anyone got a link,? (the autor of this is a pickle and hid the content,,,
then blocked me when i aksed for an old version..) please help
r3v4n21: Apollodown makes by far the funniest mod descriptions on the nexus
Jay K: its so buggy its even been taken off nexus...
Warsaw: não baixem, só vão passar raiva com os bugs dessa DISGRAÇA
anime sucks dick: "this file has been set to hidden by the authors"
yeah and meanwhile Galmar tells me to attack falkreath and he's not moving
at all....thanks obama!!
gvman3670: I would suggest not using this mod, although it's a wonderful concept. It
is a script-breaking beast and ranks right up there with the likes of
Bathing Beauties Luxury Suite when it comes to game breakers.
I just wish it played more nicely.
Tobi Koch: HELP! I did the Quest "Season Unending" and gave riften to the stormcloaks,
but now I can't end the Quest "Regain the Rift" and continue in the civil
war quest. What should I do?
DarkPhantomVids: lawl at end xD
Spencer Pond: freak the ulfric stormcloak
Zzarcon1: Is this mod still fun even if you don't take a side in the civil war?
LisandroCalejo: guys this mod is how it was suposed to be the civil war in skyrim but the
conten was canceld . and bethesda canceld a lot of conten on skyrim.. Q.Q
KronosRocks: Is it possible to get this mod for the 360?
UmbreonTheNerevarine: This mod is a great idea, but it's far to buggy.
In some battles it made invisible water or something and messed it up a bit
and it was immersion breaking as hell, and when I had to destroy the fort
near solitude, I lost and then had to defend morthal, and when I went back
to the camp when a quest marker was there and. It wasn't there.
So if you don't mind a really buggy mod, then it's great.
Starrk™ bloodlust: its not slightly buggy its always buggy. its bug so much it make vanilla
eric zock: what is better : imperal or stormcloacks ???
ComicBook Guy: In some skyrim mod show, I saw a mod that made it so that you would
encounter soldiers fighting randomly, and participate in those battles. I
have been looking everywhere for it, does anyone know what it was.
Jere Hoikka: The mod is horrible... Its good idea and it works but still i mean ulfric
tullius galmar and rikke are stuck in castle dour... They have been there
for like forever. Solitude is on ruins forever and there are no people on
the streets. I cant complete the main quest now. Also i tried it again and
now i lost a battle at some fort with the huge fighting that took like 25
Now the war does not make any progress and i cant do anything about it...
Even if i disable the mod.
icksmehl: Its down on nexus :/ do you know any other site to get this mod? thanks
anime sucks dick: can we have mods to become a warlord and conquer skyrim under your own
ruler as the new skyrim empire?
Moff UCKA: Yes i had a great game going i started a new one to incorporate this mod
and it went to crap. Nothing worked battles didn't end or if they started
things just would get weird. It is a very cool idea but honestly it seems
game breaking. If it works for you great but i don't think it will work for
many. My new character now that i deleted the mod is freaking awesome
though so thanks for that.
shadow assassin: how the stormcloaks have mages nords hate magic
Dakota Aultman: link is broken. file hidden
newbie456: i was like WTF at the end XD
Ronan Wilding: can i play this with skyrim redone and frostfall
TheKingFuu: Does this Civil War Overhaul mod work with Alternate Start mod? I recently
started the game as an Imperial, talked the golden statue and chose Join
the Imperial Legion. So will this ruin the mod by any chance?
Thomas Revill: They should remove Stormcloak mages and leave them with giants, and
vice-versa for Imperials. Stormcloaks would never use magic, and Imperials
view giants as unthinking monsters.
Layne Rice: Now all we need is a mod that let's you join the Thalmor and defeat both
sides and rule over Skyrim with an iron fist.
Roba Dop: Love the ending and the start :D Skyrim belongs to the bear of markarth
geribaldi2: WOOHOO, JUST figured it out. The extra resources this mod uses IS actually
used in vanilla Skyrim. Before joining a side I went thru the entire map
clearing out the forts. This replaced the bandits with either Stormcloak
or Imperial soldiers depending where the fort was. After seeing this done
in the 1st fort as an experiment I went and cleared the rest THEN starting
the vanilla Civil War.
Soon as Liggett's Ritka gave me the Jagged Crown quest she gave me another
one which was to defend Falkreath from the Stormcloaks. And this is NOT
the modded version and on my other play thru's this didn't happen.
Previous playthru's I ignored the various forts and immediately joined a
So I believe there is way more to the vanilla Civil War quest line then
most people are seeing.
M.Y. Peacefull: I am also on the side of the stormcloaks : )
BrenMan 94: I managed to get through the Stormcloaks questline, but the Imperial one
would always glitch out. I recommend against this mod, as much as I love
the concept and as much fun as it was (when it worked).
Garuda002: Is anyone else having trouble with Hadvar not appearing to attack the
weapons caravan in the Rift? I can attack on my own but then it tells me to
report to him but as I said he's not there.
MrAwesomesauce101: I'm sad they left so much out of the final game. It was intended that in
the civil war no matter what side you were on, you would assault every
enemy held city not just the Forts of every hold and to defend/assault
Whiterun and Assault Windhelm/ Solitude. This mod does the civil war
d0wt0ow: I fight for the Stormcloaks. Skyrim is for the Nords ! freak the damn'
Aldemeri Dominion !
BNSF1995: Finally, the Civil War I was dreaming of!
The stupid "fort raids" do not capture cities. The battles in this do.
Simsdoble originale: finaly! i think its stupid that u cant sneak in when u have the enemys
Swine Flu: I've just taken fort Sungrad for galmar and he wouldn't give me the next
quest . I was wondering if there was any way i can fix this .
SurfaceRabbit: if i dont use SKSE for this mod. will it still work??
Darcy Gray: Is there a way to make the Stormcloaks wear their normal armour?
Ryan Vanspoor: Is it possible to more or less attempt to stay neutral with this mod, or
does it absolutely force you to choose a side?
The MonkeyanSilent: this mod sounds amazing but do i have to create a new character even if i
havent gotten involved in the civil war
UnknownSquid: My personal advice for the Civil War Overhaul...
Is treat it as a stand alone playthrough. When you play with CWO, you are
playing FOR CWO. Don't try to work it into an overall build for your next
200 hour character. Make a character specifically themed for it, and go in
with a purpose.
Enjoy what the mod has to offer, call it a completed play-through, and then
deactivate CWO, delete the saves, and go back to doing other things. Some
mods no matter how cool, just aren't worth the grief of trying to integrate
into a larger mod list or primary playthrough. No one wants to lose that
long running character that you've grown attached to.
99% of us simply aren't mod maintenance wizards, nor veteran console
commanders. Nor do we have the spare time or want the immersion breaking
hassle of stopping to find fixes for things. In these cases it's better to
keep things simple and separate.
