This mod was a lot of tedious and boring work and making it was no fun at
all, but somebody had to do it one day, right? The mod changes or adds
around 310 entries, just so you have an understanding of how big this
is. You can look at the screenshot of the SSEDIT entries if you want to
get an overview of what this mod changes. To alleviate my pain and
suffering I would be very glad if you could leave an endorsement if you
like the mod.


Skyrim contains a vast amount of footstep sound assets that sadly go unused in
vanilla.They are all high quality but propably didn't make it into the
final game due to time constraints, some descriptors were already set up
while others were missing, it looks like the sounds got made some time
during development but they forgot to include them all. This ranges from
sounds for all the armor classes (Heavy, Light, Skaal
, Barefoot) to the sound they make on different surfaces (Dirt, Grass,
Gravel, Snow, Ice, Stone, Wood, Sand, Ash etc.) in combination with the
respective movement type(Sneak, Walk, Run, Sprint). It's really a lot that was missing, for example vanilla skyrim only has
the armor sound rustling for sprinting, but not really anywhere else
even though high quality sounds were provided for almost all surfaces
and movement types. NPCs didn't use sprinting sounds at all, the player
mostly had no walking sounds for anything, but instead the run sound,
other movement types like sneak were often completely forgotten and used
NPC walk etc etc. I'm too tired to give a detailed changelog, but you
can watch the comparison videos to get an idea, or look at SSEDIT to
*see* the audio. The sounds in the video are by no means all though,
just download the mod and try it for yourself, you won't regret it.

But isn't this in vanilla already?
- no
Doesn't some other mod already do this?
- no

Vanilla Footstep Sounds:

Footstep Sounds with Mod activated:

Propably works if you load it after
Immersive Sounds - Compendium
or Audio Overhaul for Skyrim SE

worst case is some sounds from those mods won't get overwritten, just tell me in the comments if you have any problems.
