No NPC Greetings
by Cipscis

For me, one of the most frustrating things in Skyrim is having an unrelated NPC speaking over the top of an important speech, just because they walked past you and decided to tell you about themselves. This mod stops all that, either by eliminating the chatter entirely or by reducing the distance required between the player and an NPC before they'll start talking to you outside of dialogue mode.

Download the plugin file that you wish to use:
"No NPC Greetings.esp" completely eliminates NPC greetings.
"Reduced Distance NPC Greetings.esp" reduces the distance required so that you'll need to nearly bump into them
"Slightly Reduced Distance NPC Greetings.esp" reduces the distance required, but not so much as "Reduced Distance NPC Greetings.esp"

Place the plugin file in your Skyrim/Data folder.

Enable the plugin file with the mod manager of your choice, such as the Nexus Mod Manager.

To uninstall this mod, just disable the plugin file in the mod manager of your choice. You may also remove it from your Skyrim/Data directory.

These plugin files alter the hard-coded GameSetting fAIMinGreetingDistance, of which default value is 150.0. "No NPC Greetings.esp" changes the value to 0.0, whereas "Reduced Distance NPC Greetings.esp" changes it to 50.0 and "Slightly Reduced NPC Greetings.esp" sets it to 90.0

Alterations can be made to this GameSetting via the console (Opened with the ~ key, next to the 1 on most keyboards):
SetGameSetting fAIMinGreetingDistance 0

v1.0 20th November 2011
Initial release

v1.0.1 26th November 2011
Added "Slightly Reduced NPC Greetings.esp", setting fAIMinGreetingDistance to 90.0 at the request of auxili

v1.1 8th February 2012
Recreated each plugin with the Creation Kit

The changes made by this mod are so tiny and inconsequential that I really don't mind what you do with it, but if you make it available after making changes please provide a link to my version of the file on the Nexus and make it clear that the file you're offering isn't all my work.

Thanks to JustinOther for providing me with the list of hard-coded GameSettings in which I found this setting, and for helping me to create a working plugin file using FNVEdit.
Thanks to Bethesda Games Studios for Skyrim and the Creation Kit
