About this mod

Tired of lockpicks?

Permissions and credits

You saw how the Greybeards opened that gate.
"Bex," Master Borri said, and the metal bars flung right open. If only they would teach you the rest of that shout, the possibilities would be endless.
In your frustration, you do as any sensible person would do:

You watch a cat video.

Hey, cat videos aren't useless after all! Now you can experiment the next time you find yourself in prison.

Testimonials and Reviews

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does this mod do?
A: First, watch the video. Second, Unrelenting Force can force doors open, even locked ones.

Q: Will this open doors that need a key?
A: No.

Q: Isn't this feature terribly imbalanced?
A: No, since lockpicking is easy it really doesn't matter. The concept makes sense, and older games let you bash locks open with weapons or use magic to unlock stuff.

Q: Why won't it work on chests?
A: I think it does . . .

Q: Are there any incompatibilities?
A: No, your shout will work on any door.

Q: How do I install?
A: Use a mod manager, or extract the contents into your "Data" folder.

Q: How do I uninstall?
A: Go into the console and type in both commands:
------------- stopquest FRDUpdateAliases
------------- stopquest FRDDoorAliases
Then save your game, delete the .esp and delete the .bsa archive.

Q: Help, none of the doors are opening!
A: Relax, just wait a few seconds for the scripts to update. If the door has open bars, then maybe you should think about where you're aiming.

Q: Why won't the Expert and Master doors open?
A: They will eventually, if you keep hounding at them. Get a couple servings of Talos Blessing and you can shout more.

Q: Why do the doors sometimes open TOWARDS me when I shout? This isn't immerisve nor realistic!
A: Doors only open one way. It would be cool to have the force of the shout blow the door off its hinges, the wood splintering into a million pieces that'll impale the foolish vampire standing in your way, but it requires a ton of effort: working around the game engine instead of working with it. This mod works with it just fine.


Leazers Open Lock 2.0 by Leazer425
Fus Ro Door uses the same method as Open Lock 2.0, so kudos to him for having an excellent spell mod!

Inspiration came from the above Youtube animation (I did NOT make that video, so go like the person who actually did) and from user SpaceCoder for bringing this idea in a forum thread.
