This mod reduces the crime report radius from 4000 (feet possibly?) down to 1000. People can no longer yell assault across all of Skyrim.

I enjoyed a similar mod for Oblivion so I decided I would make the simple tweak for Skyrim. It makes it so people can't yell nearly as far to report crimes making melee a bit more practical for a killer who doesn't want to deal with the guards. There will still be a 1000 gold bounty added if someone witnesses a murder but it has to be directly viewed. This is far from perfect but it is a quick and easy start to a more realistic feeling crime system.

*Don't use both .esp files at the same time!*

1. Extract the files to a temporary location.
2. Examine the folder structure and make corrections where necessary.
3. Copy files to (install folder)\Skyrim\Data\
Here is an example of the file structure for the any new nexus members who are not quite used to mods yet:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\Data

Simply remove the .esp

There should be no incompatibility with other mods.
*A small bug with guards not entering houses occurs due to the crime radius being less than 1000.*
