3DNPC v3.01 Beta


This is the beta release for version 3.01. If all passes muster, I’ll put it up on Nexus. This is mostly to test the experimental player bard options and make sure everything is working properly. It also adds a significant number of fixes for version 3 which are listed below. As it introduces a new vampire as well, the Dawnguard patch has also been updated.

I’ve also come to the conclusion that the Hearthfire patch doesn’t require a separate BSA, since the scripts are identical, only the ESP has properties filled and whatnot. The main version never even uses those scripts so I basically made the BSA with HF just to be safe.

To install:

1. Have v3 installed.
2. Download v3.01 Update and install.
3. Add DG and HF patches if appropriate.

Release Notes:

Voiced Content

New Miscellaneous Quest – Spell it Out for MeCassock in the Winking Skeever in Solitude

Player Bard Options – If you have a flute, drum, or lute in your inventory, or have completed Tending the Flames, you can play a handful of songs with select bards. Having an additional bard in your party, such as Alassea, Skjarn, or Amalee, will result in them joining along in most cases. Still experimental.

If you do not have these items in your inventory and have not joined the Bards College, the result will be less than ideal.

Additional Songs for Alassea and Amalee – Ronja Monto has provided alternate versions of Tears of the Hist and A Warrior’s Life which are unique to Alassea. Anna Castiglioni has added A Warrior’s Life to the list of songs she can play after completing Amalee’s personal quest.

Silent Content – Activate by typing “Setstage 3DNPCenable 1” in the console

Black Robes – Quest that finishes Anum-La‘s story, requires having beaten Bite the Hand that Feeds You.

Marry Alassea  – Once Robber’s Refuge is open for business

  1. How did I know you were going to add the option to marry Alassea XD

    Well, too bad I’m Isobel all the way. =P Too many Oblivion allusions to NOT like that character…especially since I’ve been replaying Oblivion recently XD

    Also Anum-La finally becomes a marriage candidate. Single Argonians and lizard-fetishists of Skyrim, rejoice!

      1. Ah. Ok then. I’ll probably be waiting for updates to get out of beta from now on before downloading them, though, mainly because I’m playing around with Oblivion right now so that has me occupied enough in addition to college life.

        …That, and my net is sucky right now due to bandwidth limits being exceeded. Stupid Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition and your 20 gigabytes of goodness…

  2. I’m playing Amicus‘ quest, and when I retrieve the statue of Dibella I can’t talk to the “Jarl”. The option comes up to say just the one dialogue choice “I’ve retrieved the statue etc…” but when I click on it nothing happens. It can’t be clicked. Can’t use the keyboard to activate it either.

    1. try saving and reloading(F5/F9). just skyrim weirdness, not something that’s related to the mod as dialogue is just dialogue, there’s nothing special you can do that makes it un-clickable.

    1. darkened steel questline starts it. If you’re using v3, make sure you talk to tikrid in dawnstar about her backstory before starting it.

      v3.01 makes a minor change that forces you to talk to her first.

      1. I have been wandering all around Dawnstar with Tikrid as a follower (using v3.01) and I’ve followed all of her dialogs available, but nothing has led me to Darkened Steel. Is there a level requirement or the like (I’m just 31 at the moment)?

  3. I saw the last bullet pertained to Isobel. After I download the HF patch, I wanted to marry her and move her to my HF manor. Do you recommend waiting on that? I wasn’t too sure on what HF cells were.

      1. Ah ok. Well we’re married and happily living in Lakeview Manor. I’m not sure if I can ask you here or not but I was wondering something about Isobel. Without giving away too much spoilers she decides to smith me an item. I’ve noticed the weapons she smiths are only Steel class. Anyway for me or you to change that? I’d love to use the sword she made for our wedding if it were from Nordic Carved class or something more powerful than just Steel.

  4. So would I be correct in assuming this update is still in beta, as in Black Robes stil unvoiced, etc? That’s kind of what I’ve been waiting on before downloading the update.
