***** LOAD ORDER *****

- Use LOOT. You can keep this pretty low. It only adds new NPCs to the game.


This mod adds 9 mounted Imperial and 9 mounted guard patrols to Tamriel. If one or more die in a group, the rest will still follow each other.
Horses will return to the Imperial camps or holds, if rider dies. No mounted combat (beyond my comprehension).
Riders will dismount to attack. Use  Mounted Combat For Everyone and Combat Upgrades by rymon23 . See above video

All NPCs respawn.
Leaders are non-essential and can be killed by anyone.
A tent and NPCs are added to the Imperial camps and should blend in with the Civil War. Fully navmeshed.

***** You can use Imperial and guard armor replacers with all versions *****



- 2 to 3 NPCs added at each Imperial camp location.
- 2 Penitus Oculatus guards and 2 horses added at Dragon Bridge.
- Changed all saddles on horses to Imperial ones at all Imperial camps to be consistent with mine.

For new versions: Deactivate and then delete old version. Make clean save. Then, activate new version. Load clean save.
I believe this is the safest way.


- Not compatible with any mod that changes navmesh or moves objects near the Imperial Camps.

- Compatible with armor replacer mods.

- Compatible with all my mods

- Not fully compatible with:

- When Vampires Attack
- Run For Your Lives
- Holidays

My NPCs will be called into buildings, even though they are part of the correct exemption faction.
Horses might follow, even though they shouldn't be able to go through doors.
I use "
NPCs Protected Redux and Extra Guards", instead.
You can also use "
Immersive Citizens". It doesn't affect the behavior of NPCs riding horses.

- The wonderful missjennabee has made a patch for HOP Vanilla and ETaC in version 13.5.3 and higher
Expanded Towns and Cities


                                     1.2 - new follow package - nonessential leaders (killable by anyone)
1.1 - horse are now essential - faction fixes
                        1.0 - adds Imperial and guard patrols - adds Imperial camps


Skyrim Immersive Creatures by lifestorock for the Stormcloak saddle.

Nexus Mod community for being inspired.
