Version 2 has been released


- fixed randomly missing step sounds

- slightly changed sounds
- added subtile "saddle/foley" sounds

This mod improves the "hoovestep" sounds of horses by adding "sound sets" for different grounds. That means all horses will have different step sounds for surfaces like snow, dirt, stone etc.

As usual, every sound is completely self made (recorded and edited).


Currently there are six sound sets supported:


Should be compatible with every horse mod.

How to change the volume of the horse step sounds:

Load up the IHSS.esp in the creation kit

Select Audio->Sound Descriptor and enter horse in the Filter text box.
Now you can edit (double click) every entry shown in the screenshot. (ignore the grey marked entries)

Now you can modify the static attenuation which changes the volume, you can preview your
changes immediately with the play button above the soundfile name box.

When you're done, save and start skyrim.

Check the credits and distribution permission page for corresponding informations.

Since I've got various PM's: Theres really no way to convince me to get my permission to upload any of my mods to another site, sorry. All of my Skyrim mods are Nexus exclusive.
