I can see that. Is there a mod that adds a text-chat style display in the game? Because the immersion bump you get when watching the gates swing open and seeing the city before you, as well as being able to simply jump over the walls or something (like in Whiterun) is fantastic. No more dragons flying up to Whiterun's gates and the people just on the other side going about their day as usual, or the guards just inside the gate ignoring a scuffle. Skyrim Crashes When Entering Cities - posted in Skyrim Technical Support: So I recently reinstalled Skyrim because I missed it a lot. I have a request. About the only mod I can't use is a Breezehome mod like Elianora's (I went and looked while I was typing this and apparently there's a patch). Also I never noticed much of a performance loss from it as is sometimes talked about. Hop in and chat with other members of the community! Premium Member 30 posts Hi there! I'll take the 20 in its place please, [–]Rhoso 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (3 children). Community Discussions based around various themes. Not everyone may consider it "large" but it's large enough to make the point. Then again, people say lots of other mods are incompatible with lots of other mods without knowing that for themselves, so I guess I should not be surprised everyone seems to think OCS has to be run in isolation because of rumors. it also depends on other mods for instance mods that alter npcs (for instance immersive citizens) open cities needs a lot of patches for that kind of mods. The only place in SSE I had FPS issues was Whiterun, but I'm pretty sure that's from using Verdant without Landscape Fixes. I used it once and was hooked. Open Cities Skyrim is a comprehensive project that aims to bring back at least part of the feel of Morrowind - specifically how most of the cities were a natural part of the world and you could just walk in without loading screens. I think it's coming from Immersive Citizens. Oh I see. It can be a pain. Those are the two that immediately pop to mind. Please take your screen archery to.

[–]Denotic 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). Perhaps they're justified. The thing that always bugged me about Open Cities was the way the city gates clipped into the tunnel ceiling at Riften. Only mods directly editing city exteriors would need some sort of patch, pretty much everything else should work just fine. That's the main reason I use it, at least, [–]ActualFaithlessness4[S] 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago (3 children), [–]jonnyWang33 11 points12 points13 points 2 years ago (2 children), They're so fast in SSE with an ssd it sucks, [–]SolidCalm 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child). If adragon happens to spawn while you're in town and notices you over the walls then it'll start swooping over the buildings looking for people to burn. I need some help building a town for Argonians. [–]lokisenna13 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (3 children). Performance Drain is real. Update: my dumbass found the patch. The game didn't feel any less dense to me, as the cities felt the same once I entered. [–]Avenged1994 1 point2 points3 points 2 years ago* (0 children). Well there are some direct conflicts but I meant that open cities requires a fairly good system to run it, right? So in the quest of making an Open Cities Skyrim conversion script. Open Cities is one of the most resource-intensive Skyrim mods there is. Immersive Citizens - AI Overhaul is a plugin for "The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim" whose purpose is to increase player in-game immersion by greatly improving Artificial Intelligence (AI) of friendly NPCs (citizens) in order to make them act and react like true humans … [–]lokisenna13 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago* (1 child). Immersive Citizens is no slouch either, and adding the extra NPCs from Divine Cities only makes it worse. [–]Denotic 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (11 children).

Open Cities Skyrim - Special Edition ===== Open Cities Skyrim is a comprehensive project that aims to bring back at least part of the feel of Morrowind - specifically how most of the cities were a natural part of the world and you could just walk in without loading screens. Compatibility issues with OCS are highly exaggerated and often incorrect. Maybe in ES6 they can fix the problem of loading screens, given that currently, many gaming PC's have 32-64 gB of RAM, and likely will have much more in 2022 (you know ES6 will come out in 2/22/22...).

Immersive Citizens is officially featured by Bethesda Game Studios , therefore it has been tested and validated by BGS's quality assurance teams. Have a flying mod and would like to land inside the City instead of at the gates then walking the rest of the way? That would be the most epic one in Skyrim's modding history.

You can play Skyrim in local multiplayer splitscreen now on PC by using mods !!! I just use Anise's Cabin for most of the early game. Needs a compatibility patch for everything under the sun and it's an unnecessary FPS and stability hit. Aargh. [–]Ukiah 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (4 children). They haven't played Witcher 3 either. people who don’t like open cities are people who haven’t played red dead redemption and think loading screens are “what you have to put up with” in a big open world. Every once in a while I'll see an NPC hung on a navmesh, but they eventually teleport where they need to be. Sexual content ( galleries / screenshots that involve sexual acts) is not. That's fine and I can get it to run smoothly with a fair few mods, but with all that effort from my system being used to run open cities I could run 20 other mods in its place which id enjoy more. I guess that's dismissive from one point of view. and would have no bearing on conflicts with other mods. Tried it, it's ok but not my thing. Bringing your horses with you. I have no problems after installing that mod both new game and existing mod Well I'm going to fix that, one mod at a time!!! A lite version of Immersive Citizens has been added. Screenshots do not contribute to the discussion of modding or mod creation. NPC mods and other sorts of stuff that add NPC's in exterior of Whiterun can still be accessed and do not require a patch. That response is exactly what I was calling "dismissive," yeah. I don't really see the attitude you're describing much. [–]ArthmoorDestroyer of Bugs 20 points21 points22 points 2 years ago (0 children), I meant that open cities requires a fairly good system to run it, right. No other mods except the unofficial patch + Skse + crash fixes. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. I love the concept of Open Cities, as an old school Morrowind player. Light load order/modding, it's a good mod. [–]ArthmoorDestroyer of Bugs 5 points6 points7 points 2 years ago (6 children), Needs a compatibility patch for everything under the sun. I can see how frustrating it might be as a mod creator to put all that effort in and then people seem to bitch and gripe and generally be unappreciative. Actually no, that's not the case and never has been. I would strongly suspect Crash Fixes is responsible for this FPS drop because that's exactly what it did when I used it on my own setup. I've known everything from quests to follower mods needing patches for Open Cities, aside from the obvious like Dawn or JK's Skyrim. I don't use Open Cities either. I wish more was compatible with the mod but what you gonna do? [–]Ember2528Riften 8 points9 points10 points 2 years ago (0 children). But in my current load order I do not have it, as I did get frustrated with ensuring compatibility and also the need to run DynDOLOD two times to properly generate the LODs. Occassionally NPC's would be in the ground. Honestly I like "entering" cities because It feels like you truly enter it, Skyrim is "open" enough as it is and by opening up all cities I feel like you make the game "less dense". I wouldn't touch that mod combo on my beefy-ish PC, let alone a console, but I'm also a bit more conservative when it comes to mod choice and performance tradeoffs than some others. [–]ArthmoorDestroyer of Bugs 5 points6 points7 points 2 years ago (4 children). I've installed immersize ai citizen tho. If you prefer heavily modded Cities with dozens of new NPCs and several new buildings, it's going to be a compatibility nightmare that you'll probably want to avoid. [–]Ukiah 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (10 children). The alpha is to check to any so they can be fixed. I've read quite often already that all of those mods (JK's Skyrim, Open Cities, Immersive Citizens, Immersive Patrols) are more or less essential for a good immersive play through. The NPC was easily accessed using the AI doors and from then on the rest of the mod ran as normal. I don't like it. This version adds the following features to the NPCs which are friendly and unique (named): Survival Instinct, Combat Style & Go Home. For The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition on the Xbox One, a GameFAQs message board topic titled "Remove open cities". Edit: Fixed run-on sentences. I tend not to like most of the city mods out there and for the mods I do use there are patches. [–]Ukiah 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (0 children). Thankfully new content like Beyond Skyrim can be designed to have open cities, so there you can get both the cities and the compatibility. The first mod I looked for was something like open cities. End of discussion. [–]lokisenna13 -1 points0 points1 point 2 years ago (1 child). It seemed to work well enough but I was working with a small, one building mod). Ah okay gotchya, thanks. [–]Booper3 73 points74 points75 points 2 years ago (4 children), Open cities is a no go for me. Groovtama seems to have had enough with XMPSE. As for hy I use it it makes the game feel a lot more immersive imo. [–]Ukiah 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children).
