A huge Thank You to the Nexus community for placing "Savage Wolves" among the Hot Mods! 


If your like me and have been disappointed with the vanilla wolves, then this mod is for you.  This mod replaces the vanilla wolf skeleton with a new custom skeleton meant to give the wolves of Skyrim a more realistic and savage appearance.  After looking through tons of pictures, sculptures and paintings and working within the confines of the vanilla mesh, I enlarged the limbs, neck and skull of the wolf and the result is a more realistic and savage wolf that will strike fear throughout Skyrim and the modding community. This affects all wolves in Skyrim


Now Includes a version with my new mod Feral Foxes!


Savage Wolves uses a custom skeleton for the vanilla Wolves and will overwrite any mod that makes changes to the vanilla wolf skeleton.  Mods that make sweeping changes to vanilla skeletons e.g."Realistic Ragdoll and Force" should be compatible as long as "Savage Wolves" is installed after those mods and allowed to overwrite their files.

Should be fully compatible with any texture mods, since this mod contains no textures of it's own only a skeleton.  Which also makes it compatible with most other creature mods that do not edit vanilla skeletons.

Here are just a few that I know are compatible.

Immersive creatures - Compatible

Monster Mod - Compatible

SkyTest -Realistic Animals and Predators Compatible

SkyTest -Harder Creatures - Compatible

[ [ [ INSTALLATION ] ] ]

Recommend using Nexus Mod Manager or your favorite mod manager.

Install "Savage Wolves" after any mod that makes changes to the vanilla wolves and click "Yes to all" when prompted to overwrite any files.

This mod includes an "esp plugin", so load order shouldn't matter, but keep it below any major creature mods to be on the safe side.

[ [ [ UNINSTALL ] ] ]

Simply uninstall with your favorite mod manager.

Then make a clean save before reinstalling a new version of this mod.


I'd like to give a kudos to my colleague OpusGlass for providing the esp for this mod, and for making some terrific mods for the Nexus Community!
