Skyrim Mod: Civil War Overhaul




What do you think about this video?

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.

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.

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.

xXDarksoulXx01: sadly, the decreption of the mod is better than the mod itself (glitches -.-)

NuKeNINJA36: You need to start a new game for this mod to work. :( That's what the Nexus mod description said.

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?

SurfaceRabbit: if i dont use SKSE for this mod. will it still work??

RaijinHanshi: Ulfric is the true high king of Skyrim! Down with the Empire.

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 side. So I believe there is way more to the vanilla Civil War quest line then most people are seeing.

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.

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?

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 

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.

Gadjeel: This mod is unplayable.

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

Cody Wilson: You know bro dual you should really do levelers tower I like your mods shows you do and everything and that one is a good mod even if it is cheating.

TheRazer43: Anyone knows how to install it on PS3? I would love to have this mod :D

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.

Wix3nZ: I have a problem with this mod, i just joined the imperials, and after getting the jagged crown and coming back to solitude, the guards there are stormcloaks.. and in the mod menu it says "Haafingar is owned by: the sons" but they couldnt have already taken it cuz i just started the civil war questline... help please?

UmbreonTheDragonBorn: 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. 

Tommy Leong: wait.... 0:47...is that... a stormcloak elf???

Kras: Can you RE-take a hold that you lost?

shadow assassin: how the stormcloaks have mages nords hate magic

M.Y. Peacefull: I am also on the side of the stormcloaks : )

poisonedtanto: How does it determine if you win or lose a battle? enemys killed vs friendlies killed?

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).

Saiya Jin: Love the ending and the start :D Skyrim belongs to the bear of markarth

Anthony Phifer: I say the Empire and Stormcloaks should band together and defeat the Thalmor

Tanzila Elma: Guys Help! i can't win battle for falkreth no matter what. Anyone know why?

Eric McIntyre: I NEED A PC!!!

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 Justice.

d0wt0ow: I fight for the Stormcloaks. Skyrim is for the Nords ! freak the damn' Aldemeri Dominion !

MrNappa8000: não baixem, só vão passar raiva com os bugs dessa DISGRAÇA

Ed Marten: Eff Bethesda!! Let's remove parts of skyrim so we can use them in a POS MMO that we can charge people monthly for. This is what Bethesda has done. I can't wait to see how badly they eff up Fallout. I'm huge fan of there games but I'm getting tired of buying broken half completed games. 

Soul Drake: 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.

Enedric Skyrim: does it work if i've finished the civil war?

BNSF1995: Finally, the Civil War I was dreaming of! The stupid "fort raids" do not capture cities. The battles in this do.

Jere Hoikka: If you can could you help me with this glitch?` So i joined the stormcloaks and i have done everything i had to do and now we are supposed to attack whiterun. Ulfric comes to me talking about tullius trying to get Winterhold when hes supposed to give me orders about attacking whiterun...

Simsdoble originale: finaly! i think its stupid that u cant sneak in when u have the enemys armor

r3v4n21: Apollodown makes by far the funniest mod descriptions on the nexus

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 .

Darcy Gray: Is there a way to make the Stormcloaks wear their normal armour?

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.

newbie456: but what was that music that he use at the end ? 

NickAB1: Love ending, take that you imperial dog!

johancoolin: Don't download this mod unless you are willing to put up with a lot of trouble. After losing my first (and only) battle of whiterun I was screwed. I was supposed to wait for some carrier to show up (after waking up) but he never came, so I left. I then later got a message about some place being under attack, and so I went there. Got there by my own horse because I hadn't been there before, and I killed all the attacking imperials. Funny thing is, the original jarl who is a stormcloak still acts as if the place is under imperial control, and it is, even though I succesfully defended it.. I later got a quest to speak with Galmar about overtaking some new town. The option to do so was there, but every time I clicked it he just said "Not now, we have other things to do first." or something similiar. So I was blocked from overtaking a new city, the one I defended is still under imperial control and well pretty much everything is crap. Don't download this mod right now. 

DarkPhantomVids: lawl at end xD

outrage mage: My dear Sire, You have to most moving and beautifull outro of all time. But long live THE empire

Cody Wilson: You know bro dual you should really do levelers tower I like your mods shows you do and everything and that one is a good mod even if it is cheating.

newbie456: i was like WTF at the end XD
