About this mod

A highly customizable Vampire overhaul; players determine how they want to play. Neither feeble nor overpowered because YOU balance weaknesses and strengths how you see fit. You and those you turn will live your lives as Vampires and feed to enhance your power and abilities.

Better Vampires is an overhaul mod for Skyrim. It strives to maintain balance and provide a much better experience for those wishing to play the game as a Vampire. Other vampire mods exist, but they can be overly complex or force you to play only as the author intended. My mod is about choice and flexibility - and making your adventuring in Skyrim much more enjoyable.

This mod only affects the player vampire; I don't make any changes to NPC vampires.

This is a HIGHLY customizable Vampire mod; you choose how you want to play.
Versions 8.2 and higher for SkyrimSE now have support for SKSE and SkyUI!

- Use the customization power that you find in your spell menu (or my MCM if using SKSE and SkyUI) to set all the options for BV - then feed once on a sleeping or seduced victim to solidify your stage, rank, and all options.

- Crouch (sneak) while activating my customization power to see your Vampire status.
- If using SKSE and SkyUI you can customize hotkeys to check status or use abilities.

- Use my customization power to look at your Vampire details to see your rank progress.
If using SKSE and SkyUI you can use my MCM to see details about your vampirism and refer to progression charts.


There is so much this mod contains that a description cannot do it justice.

This is a very old video I made for Better Vampires 6.31 (1080p).
A great deal has been changed/added since.
