Immersive Citizens SE: changes Note



Version 0.3.9a

Modifications performed on 3 khajiit Caravan scenes by "Alternate Start - Live Another Life" have been integrated in Immersive Citizens.

Version 0.3.9

- Companions AI (Athis, Torvar, Njada, Ria, Farkas, Vilkas, Skjor, Aela & Tilma) has been redone in order to improve their quality up to my current standards.
- The AI used by Danica has been redone in order to ensure that the scene with Maurice Jondrelle during the The Blessings of Nature works as intended.
- Minor corrections have been done on Olfrid AI, Lydia AI, Olfina AI, Balgruuf AI, Vignar AI, Caius AI, Sinmir AI, irileth AI, Jenssen AI, Hadvar AI & Ralof AI.
- The AI used by the NPCs working in Whistling mine ( Angvid, Badnir, Gunding & Thorgar) has been fully overhauled.
- The feature "Survival Instinct" has been modified in order to prevent NPC enlisted as followers to use this feature. This wasn't initially intended and NPCs could only use this feature if you use some Followers Overhaul with specific settings. Note that for now this change only apply to NPCs that can be recruited without using a mod.
- The compatibility patches for OCS has been updated to be in line with the latest version of Immersive CItizens.
- The compatibility patch for OCS will now also modify the placement of "AI door" in the following cities: Riften, Markarth, WIndhelm & Solitude. This should prevent NPCs to use the closed wordspaces when they travel from an house to another house.
- An update system and a compatibility system have been implemented. If you update immersive citizens on a old save, then all the new content from the update will be automatically implemented. Therefore you won't have anymore to update Immersive Citizens by using the in-game configuration menu when you update on a old save.
The compatibility system have been designed to ensure a better synergy with weather mod (CoT, VVW, ect.). In a upcoming update, NPCs will be able to make the difference between a thunder storm and a light rain. For now, if you use CoT, the "Weather Influence" feature for NPCs living in Raven Rock will be automatically disabled (and reenabled if you uninstall CoT). This has been done because if you use CoT, in Raven Rock area there is 90% chance to have a weather classified as rainy or snowy. Therefore, if you used CoT, NPCs living in Raven Rock spent 90% of their time inside their house. The rainy and snowy weathers implemented by CoT in Raven Rock area are really "light", therefore this won't decrease your immersion if NPCs in Raven Rock doesn't adapt their behavior according to the weather when you use CoT.

Version 0.3.8.1

- An incorrect set of conditions in the story manager event node prevented the NPCs inside the Palace of the Kings (Windhelm) to have conversations, this has been fixed.
- The following NPCs will now sleep at least 6 hours per day: Harlaug, Gjalund (Solstheim version), Sogrlaf (Solstheim version), Lygrleid (Solstheim version), Slitter, Mogrul, Teldryn, Drovas and Geldis.
- Minor improvements has been done one the AI used by the following NPCs living in Solstheim: Milore and Garyn

Version 0.3.8

- Farengar could be be sometimes get stuck in an casting animation loop for several minutes. In order to fix this problem his AI has been redone.
- Sissel still used the vanilla candlelight spell during her magic training session, this has been fixed.
- Several conversation involving Addvar (fishmonger living in Solitude) have been disabled because they do not work correctly and therefore disrupted NPCs AI. This is due to the fact that several dialogues from Addvar have not been archived.
- An NPCs tracking system has been added. This feature can be activated with the in-game configuration menu available via a Power (called Citizens Control). This feature allows you to get in real time the position of the following NPCs: Aela, Faendal, Farkas, Jenassa, Lydia, Torvar, Vilkas and Uthgerd. In other words the NPCs that can be difficult to find and which can be enlisted as followers. I will decide to expand it to other NPCs or not according to the feedback I get. Therefore, if you find this feature usefull, please manifest yourself.

Version 0.3.7a

- Unecessary modifications performed on the navmeshes used in Old Hroldan Inn and in The Bee and Barb have been removed.
- Forwarded the modifications done by USSEP on the following entries: 0005D509, 0003586C

Version 0.3.7

- Some landscape alterations around Rorikstead have been removed by error during the development of a previous version. As a result one of the shack added by Immersive Citizens floated above the ground, this has been fixed.
- All the AI added by Immersive Citizens and which used vanilla spells, will now use duplicate versions of vanilla spells. This has been done to avoid bad synergies with mods altering vanilla spells, notably the candlelight spell and the heal spells.
- Windhelm market won't be closed anymore during snowy weather.
- The AI used by Ysolda contained an error preventing her to sleep. This has been fixed.
- The sleep schedule of Hulda, Orgnar and Mralki have been modified. They will now wake up at 8 am instead of 9 am.
- The following NPCs will now sleep at least 6 hours per day: Guthrum, Ravan Verthi, Captain wayfearer, Varnius Junius, Faida, Karita, Abelone, Thoryng, Alesan, Leontius, Eydis, Skuli, Ranmir, Dagur, Haran, Eiridi, Fultheim, Hadring, Jonna, Wilhelm, Belrand, Noster One Eagle-Eye, Jaree Ra, Louis Letrush, Gulum EI, Deeja, Marcurio, Talen Jei, Keerava, Dravynea, Kjeld, Kjeld the younger, Iddra, Lisette, Corpulus Vinius, Minette Vinius and Sorex Vinius. It means that all the Innkeeper will now sleep as well as almost all NPCs strongly related to a tavern. Note that I haven't yet fixed all the NPCs that doesn't sleep. For example, there is still some carriage drivers and some ferrymans which need to be fixed. I will take care of them in a next update.

Version 0.3.6.5.a

- For unknow reasons, sometimes the following encounters never stop:
* Companions Hunting (Vilkas and Ria)
* Companions Hunting (Skjor, Aela and Njada)
* Companions Hunting (Farkas, Athis and Torvar)

The AI used during these encounters overrided the AI used by some quests such as "Purity" and by the follower system and by the marriage system. Therefore, these encounters was a source of serious bugs for several users. In order to bypass this problem, these encounters won't alter anymore AI used by The Companions.

- Due to bad vanilla navigation mesh, Aeri couldn't leave her house. This has been fixed.
- Reworked the conditions used by several dialogues, in order to be in line with the change made by Relationship Dialogue Overhaul.


Note that the latest version of JK's Whiterun and JK's Riverwood are fully compatibles with Immersive Citizens.
Note also that the latest version of Breezehome by Elianora must be positioned above Immersive Citizens - AI Overhaul.esp in your load order.
