Torches for Skyrim - by black

WARNING: YOU SHOULD USE WRYE BASH FOR COMPATIBILITY - check bottom !

Realistic Lighting uses x2 torch radius (+100%) as DEFAULT. If you use REALISTIC LIGHTING and want a higher torch radius, use one of my optional x2.5 or x3 versions.
But be warned, all torch sources are changed, which can light up dungeons a lot !
Optional files are not recommended for stealth characters.

Load the optional mod at last to make sure it works! If you place it before REALISTIC LIGHTING, it won't work !

===============================
Changelog:

===============================
Description
===============================

You hate it when torches are the most rate item in Skyrim?
I've got a mod for you. Torches will be everywhere and will be used if a NPC spawns with a torch !

But remember, already spawned NPCs which entered your saves won't be affected.
Cells need to reset first ! Usually cells after a while, so don't care about that.

===============================
FEATURES
===============================

-Adds torches to humanoids, some 25% fixed, some up to 45%
-Adds torches to chests, 2x 15% chance
-Adds torches to citizen, poor 25%, common 50%, rich minimum 75%
-Adds torches to humanoid undead, 5% chance - ondeath loot, they won't use it :D

nice side effects, already coded into vanilla:

-NPCs with torches will make use of them at night when outside or in cities
-NPCs in caves who patrol will use them, if they have one
-NPCs in caves who stand around lights won't use torches by default.
If you attack those and they start searching, they may pull it out and check shadows.
You can use that with my other mod "ShadowPlay" to make it more realistic and also harder ;)

===============================
HOW TO INSTALL / UNINSTALL
===============================

Use Nexus Mod Manager !

===============================
PROBLEMS & CONFLICTS WITH MODS
===============================

Compatibility depends, not sure how Skyrim uses additions to leveled lists, if it merges stuff from all mods together or not. If not, there may be compatibility problems - so load this mod first to let the more imporant mods overwrite if neccesary.

Or better, use Wrye Bash and create compatibility fixes. Wrye Bash should be standard if you use tons of mods ! To manage / update files you can still use Nexus Modmanager.
In Wrye Bash sort your mods if needed (or use BOSS to do that), then right click somewhere, choose file and create a new bashed patch file. Right click on that patch file in your mod window, and choose to rebuild. Tick it, done. All conflicts from all your mods are gone. But beware, there can only be a single setting - make sure you don't use mods which change the same thing !
