Improved Horse Step Sounds v2 © 2013 Crystan

-> Nexus exclusive mod <-

Version 2 has been released

>>> I highly recommend to use rohverK's Footsteps Sounds Overhaul mod together with my compatible version <<<
(his mod fixes also the "no step sounds for a few seconds" vanilla bug)


- slightly changed sounds
- added subtle "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.
