The ‘Skyrim NPCs are now annoyed when you wake them up in the middle of the night.
Ever felt like you were losing your immersion while playing Skyrim? This is a severe problem, and it’s shameful that this game was released in such a state. Skyrim has finally been made playable by the modding community.
JaySerpa is a well-known Skyrim modder on Nexus Mods. We are grateful for this act of kindness. Their latest creation, Sleeping Expanded, is an excellent example of this. It improves NPC sleeping behavior. Because of immersion!
JaySerpa said that the mod was created after JaySerpa’s character was attacked by two bandits while they were asleep. It takes about 9 seconds for vanilla to get a character out of bed. 9 seconds. They said that even my grandmother, who is 89 years old, doesn’t take as long. They killed our friend khajiit before they could get him up. I was inspired to try and fix some sleep issues that have always troubled me.
What are the changes? There are breathing animations that allow NPCs to remain awake in their sleep, which is a good thing. There are three speeds you can use to get out of bed. This includes a super-fast way to get up if involved in combat.
The most important thing is that the NPCs are now mad at you if they wake you up in the middle night. Around 100 (!) Around 100 (!) reactions were added. It doesn’t affect any quests or relationships at all, but it’s a lot of fun. Skyrim has evolved to include “waking up people inthe middle of the night,”
Download the mod to test it out. There have been many other immersive and fun mods released by the modder, including the ability to pet dogs. This is, I believe, the essential feature Skyrim has yet to see. JaySerpa, thank you. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without JaySerpa.
