What is Sounds of Skyrim?

Sounds of Skyrim is an audio project that
adds around 460+ sound effects to the game world. It affects almost
every cell and region in the game. The main goal is to not have one
environment that is soundless to enhance immersion. The sounds are
affected by the time of day, weather and location. So when walking in
the city streets during the day, you'll hear the echo of doors opening
and closing, children playing and workers sawing things. While at night,
cats fight for territory and dogs bark.

Merged Sounds of Skyrim modules

The Wilds

The Wilds  focuses on adding sound effects in Skyrim's wilderness. With the
115 new sound effects, the purpose of The Wilds is to audibly enlarge
Skyrim's fauna with the addition of various animals, birds and insects
that play according to weather, time of day and region. In the forests,
for example, you'll hear the sounds of foxes, deers and ravens. At
night, you'll hear wolves howling from far away or common loons calling
others. In The Reach, you might hear the occasional mountain goat or

In addition to animals, The Wilds also adds rain-impact sounds on tents and wooden structures, sounds of rustling bushes to
simulate the movements of small mammals that scatter away as you
approach and sounds of calm water waves hitting wood on tree logs or
structures that are partially submerged in water.

The Dungeons

The Dungeons includes 115+ sound effects to add life to the dungeons. The
enemy type that inhabits a dungeon will make itself heard. At dungeons’
entrances, you also hear the exterior weather. If there’s a thunderstorm
 raging outside, you’ll hear the thunder rumbling in the fort or cave

There's a standard sound set for each type of dungeon: Cave, Dwemer Ruins,
Forts and Sewers. These sounds play in these dungeons regardless of who
or what lives in it. To spice it up, dungeons inhabited by Falmer or the
 Undead have their own sound sets in addition to the standard ones.
Undead dungeons have zombies and wraiths screaming or moaning. In Falmer
 dungeons, you'll hear their occasional screams; a way of communicating
with each other since they are nearly blind.


Civilization focuses on adding 223 new sound effects to cities, villages, farms and
remote locations where civilization is present. In cities, you can hear
the sound of a hammer being used by a villager repairing something,
children playing, dogs barking or cats fighting. As you get closer to a
tavern doorstep, the sounds of patron chatting from behind the door are
played. When you get in, some patron may laugh out loud, yell or break

On farms or near them, you can hear the sounds of their animals, if they have any. Most of those sound effects can be
heard inside buildings too, linking the interior cells with the
exterior. If I take the farm example, you may hear the hen if you sit
close to the window. If it’s raining, you’ll hear the rain hitting the
windows; if there’s a snowstorm, you’ll hear the cold wind whistling by
the windows.

Finally, this mod would never have been possible without the contribution of many sound
recorders and artists from There's a file in the archive
with the credits for everyone who made the sounds. A HUGE thanks to
them, otherwise the sounds would not have been as high quality as they
are. You can also view the credits in the Credits tab above.


Q: "I do not like "that" or "this" sound. What can I do?"
A: At this time, without an MCM menu, there is only one option available to remove a sound or a group of sounds.
There is a silent sound file in the mod's sound folder that you
can use to replace the sound effects you do not wish to hear.

Q: "Does Sounds of Skyrim decreases performance?"
No. The way the new sounds play is the same way the game's default sounds are played.
