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.
Blargh Shmarg: There's this bug that's preventing me from completing the main quest and I
believe it's this mod. I get to the part where you tell arngeir to help
stop the war. He says ok, go get Tullius and Ulfric. Then nothing happens.
The quest doesn't continue, not even with console commands, and at one
point, Ulfric didn't exist in my game. I can't finish the main quest now,
is there any way to fix this?
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
It´s Stay Away!: UPDATE:
It's been updated on the 25th January 2015!
From what i read it's pretty much bugless now but i aint giving it a try
yet. So maybe you want to re-review it ;)
RaijinHanshi: Ulfric is the true high king of Skyrim! Down with the Empire.
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!!
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.
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.
josh slatter: Is this mod safe now? Is it compatible with warzones?
TheKappa: Seems like an awesome mod. Too bad you have to start a new game.
gurufabbes1: Sorry, but Stinky Buttface goes too far in his criticism. Yes, it's a bit
buggy and you should save between missions, with reloading solving most of
the bugs and issues, but Apollodown, the creator, has brought us a golden
mod that really changes the Civil War and makes you feel apart of what is
supposed to be.
It's easy to criticize tiny details and ignore the greater whole.
xXDarksoulXx01: sadly, the decreption of the mod is better than the mod itself (glitches
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.
DragonM3t4l: One of the BEST mods ever created!--- Sadly The world is pretty much
exactly the same as when you started the game which makes the player feel
like every thing they did was pointless..Bethesda---> no consequences
Dovahkiin1era: Can someone help? I am on the stormcloak side of the war and i am on
falsefront and the guards keep attacking me i disguise myself but they now
its me can some help by tell me what armor or id it is or the console
command to reach the attack on fort snowhawk
Escapulario100RN: Thats a lot of enemies, I wonder if this will have a heavy impact in
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
r3v4n21: Apollodown makes by far the funniest mod descriptions on the nexus
VunderGuy: To be fair, if I was a stormcloak and saw a dumbass imperial wearing armor,
I'd attack to, if only because the Imperials are ditzes.
kolpin HD: what is better : imperal or stormcloacks ???
MarkusM121: Stormcloak bastards.
SuperCommando48: I like the idea of being able to lose a war, so you could be a stormcloak,
lose the war, go undercover to an imperial hold, an re-take it.
King Grievous: BEST MOD EVER!
Eric Masten: This mod obliterates my FPS :( lol
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
408punk: Best mod yet! Wish this was in the real game.
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.
BTC JohnnyBeGoodNot: I know I have SKSE installed and SkyUI because it comes with it. If I
really want this mod to work I should just not have any other mods other
than what is compatible? Because now after I get the jagged crown he
promotes me but I can't do the rest. I also did the truce at High Hrothgar
first before the civil war so idk if that maybe screwed it up.
vincent jackson: mods are for cheaters!!
Shoop DaWhoop: this mod is unplayable and the mod author is the biggest maggot on skyrim
nexus.... he fills his page with stupid jokes and videos forcing you to
read hours of nonsence to install the mod... so basicly its a big waste of
Lucius Avenus: Love the idea, but I use Sons of Skyrim, and monsters just kill my thing.
Kamir Aurelia (Formerly AeonStaite): No idea what is with all the hate, I run a heavily modded, heavy scripted
skyrim, and not run into any issues with the Civil War. I find more Bugs in
the Sands of Time mod than this one.
insert cliche name: this mod can ruin your game, i constantly get attacked by ALL the guards in
and nothing could fix it.
so keep away from this bug filled piece of trash
76ecth981: Is there a more basic mod that adds in imperial/stormcloak mages? I feel
like the odd mage would make those battles for interesting.
Webber: I don't know what I hate more, the bugs in this mod or the piece of crap
that designed it. He seems far too pleased with himself to help people out,
constantly being a sarcastic unhelpful twat. I guess you can probably tell
that by the description page.
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.
Warsaw: não baixem, só vão passar raiva com os bugs dessa DISGRAÇA
Jay K: its so buggy its even been taken off nexus...
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.
Y2K Core: Don't get this M8s, buggy af mod that will ensure a hold is captured the
moment you attempt to conquer a dungeon/kill a dragon/talk to anyone/do
anything, it requires a metric freakton of other Skyrim modding tools/mods
(BOSS, SKSE, Etc), and if you get this mod, be prepared to do *nothing*
other than the civil war until you finally conquer solitude (or windhelm if
you're the thalmors' bitch).
тнє ємρєяσя: People who keep saying it's buggy: It was updated and fixed on 31/12/14!
...Or atleast that's what the description says e.e
connor gill: just a quick question is this also on the steam workshop if it is can u
link it to me
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.
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?
GrimReaper2.0: Stormcloak Master Race
Spencer Pond: freak the ulfric stormcloak
KidOnTheVERGE: This mod or Warzones:Civil Unrest?
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
