Skyrim Mod: Civil War Overhaul




What do you think about this video?

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 performance

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 mess.

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 of health. 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 time.

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 stormcloak cities. 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! >:I ...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 side. 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 game better
