My riders will fight on horseback with this mod below installed. Pretty cool, huh.

Please indicate which patrol has issues, so I can resolve any problems faster.

Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use IMMERSIVE ARMORS by Hothtrooper44, if you want some of their armor to possibly show up on the Orcs.
        Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use Mounted Combat For Everyone and Combat Upgrades by rymon23, if you want mounted combat for my riders.


This mod adds 4 mounted Orc patrols to the 4 Orc settlements and a mounted Orc Barbarian patrol to a new camp.
If one or more die in a group, the rest will still follow each other.
Horses will return to the Orc settlements or camp, 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.

Orc horses use saddles from TheWinterhawks Hunter Saddle With Variants by Winterhawk.
Orc Barbarian Armor uses armor from Barbarian Steel Armor by steelfeathers.

6 patrolling Orc guards are added to the 4 settlements.
16 new female faces and 26 new male faces will be randomly selected.
Each Orc guard follows their own patrol path.
5 Orc Barbarians will sandbox and sleep at the new camp.

All Orcs are different heights. Mostly tall.
A couple of short ones, too.
Horse heights are changed according to riders height

All Orcs respawn.


Orc Barbarian Camp:

- 5 Orc Barbarians added.
- 5 horses added.
- bedrolls, clutter, fire, and other misc.

Orc Settlements:

- 6 patrolling Orc guards
- Changed saddle on horse at Orc settlement to be consistent with mine.

Use NMM or place esp, meshes, and textures in Skyrim data folder.

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.


- compatible with all my mods

- compatible with Immersive Orc Strongholds.esp

- compatible with NPC adding mods like
Immersive Patrols

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.
