    Thank you so much! I hate those stupid dreams and that goofy looking little s***! Now if only there were a mod to skip the intro entirely. And by that, I mean skip everything up until you reach the citadel. I don't want to do the mini-mission on Earth, nor do I want to do the mission on Mars. I seriously hope that it's possible and that someone makes a mod for it, because starting new playthroughs is a pain in the ass otherwise. And I like replaying the campaign, it gives me a chance to try different weapons, techniques, and playstyles with the different classes. I should probably submit a mod request in the forum, now that I think about it. ^_^"

    Hey Deager, I was wondering if there's a way of having the vent conversation with the kid gone, but not alter the dreams? I'm using Better Dreams mod for that :) Like deleting the BioD_Nor files and autotoc?

      Yeah, that should work. Just keep BioD_ProEar_210Child_LOC_INT.pcc but delete all other pcc files. I can't confirm if there will be any subtitle or other issues though; just so you're aware.

    Way overdue that I finally got around to checking your mod here out. I do like giftfish's Better Dreams hearkening back to the trilogy's events as a whole, it's just unfortunate that its reiteration of the final dream is not compatible* with ron's mod released a short while ago. However, you achieve here what is most sorely needed to begin with: a way to cut short the dreams and also quietly remove the kid from the premises of Shepard's mind.

    On the other hand, I found that at least BD's first and your third dream can be used via ron's compatibility-patch for your mod. Regarding the second dream, I was wondering, would I need to delete both BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief2.pcc and BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief2_LOC_INT.pcc within DLC_EXP_SD-folder for BD's 2nd dream to proceed properly or is it enough to just remove BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief2.pcc? I currently removed both and should get to that point in-game again soon either way to see whether it works properly or not.

    *PS: I take it there would be a lot of sequence- and raw hex-editing involved to try and come up with a compatibility-patch? Only took a glance at BioD_Nor_600Cat4Intro.pcc shared between all three mods in sequence-editor.

      Since I don't do anything funky with conditionals, removing those 204Kro002 files should do the trick for you, and we'll see soon enough.
      I've not used Same-Sex Romances but it reads like there is the ability to patch for Shorter Dreams with the Mods Utils menu.

      Was running its compatibility-patch with your mod and BD, to be had, with that mod's two BioD_Nor_600-files removed. And as I just saw, BD's 2nd dream works fine with the above mentioned BioD_Nor_204-files out of SD.

      I'll leave trying to make BD's third dream work in that particular setup - BD and ron's SS - for some other time.

    Is there a way to keep the free roam during the dream, plus keep the voices as usual, but without the kid? I like the concept of this mod, but it also feels *too* short to me (at least the first two dreams, that is). The ambience music in the background was the one part I loved about the dreams, but there’s not enough time to really let it sink in here.

      Technically it is probably possible to do that but I can't see myself making a change to this mod at this point, sorry. Lots of moving parts to make the free roam work without the kid.

      EDIT: I should add, that maybe Better Dreams would be more to your liking that Shorter Dreams? I know that it's quite different but maybe that would suit you best?

      I'll just use your mod instead. What I've generally speaking enjoyed about your mods is that they tweak content within the confines of the original vision (although maybe that doesn't apply here because the devs clearly wanted us to care about this stupid kid).

    Thank you so much for this xD After playing the game 3 times, I just don't care about the kid and dreams at all.

    What's all the different options you can have with this mod so far?

    I'm interested in trying this out sometime and would like to know if you can mix & match these versions of Shepard's nightmares with the vanilla ones, and if you can just get rid of the vent scene without having to change everything else too.

      4 options on the install.
      shorter dreams without the kid and no vent scene
      shorter dreams without the kid
      shorter dreams with the kid and no vent scene
      shorter dreams with the kid

      BioD_ProEar_210Child_LOC_INT.pcc and the tlk of DLC_EXP_SD_INT.tlk for that version of the mod are the files which make the kid not in the vent, so if you installed the mod with the option of "no vent," then you could grab that file and use later in other mods. As long as you're familiar with AutoTOC you should be fine.

      Dream 1 is controlled by BioD_Nor_110Tour.pcc
      Dream 2 is BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief2.pcc
      Dream 3 is BioD_Nor_600Cat4Intro.pcc

      To add a little wrinkle, if the "no kid" dreams are installed, dream 2 also has BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief2_LOC_INT.pcc and BioD_Nor_204Kro002_Debrief3_LOC_INT.pcc.

      Anyway, if you know how to AutoTOC, you could essentially mix and match. But I've never done it and hopefully I've remembered the files correctly.

      Well, that *was* the plan anyway... Then moho25's mod showed up the other day and sorta stole the show for me...

      ...Whoops...

      At any rate: I appreciate the effort, and that you started the whole nightmare improvement thing to begin with. From what I've seen yours is still a great choice, and of course the more options the better. You're still getting an endorsement from me even if I don't end up actually trying it out. (Though I'd say it's a safe bet I still will at some point, that was pretty much a "just in case")

      Cheers, Deager.

      Heh, thanks. Really, I like that players have choices so definitely use the option that you would enjoy.

    You are the real hero my friend. Nothing is more annoying than these dream sequences. And you also managed to do skip the kid during prologue too. Thanks a million from indoctrination theory supporters. We hate Reaper toying with our Shep's mind.

      Yeah, getting the kid out of there helps with a lot of different theories and mods so I'm glad it worked out. Indoctrination would have been so awesome!

    This is awesome! The dream kid nightmares always bothered me because there are so many other people in Shepard's life for them to have dreams about. Shepard has lost so many people in their life that they couldn't save. Such as Jenkins, Kaidan/Ashley, their team on Elysium or Akuze, etc. Yet we are stuck with the kid.

    Okay, yeah, I know they are indoctrination dreams but I would still rather not see them.

    Thank you so much for this!
