Mods that Legacy support has been removed for:
The following mods have had their support removed for various reasons.

  • Beyond Skyrim - Bruma - the mod will still work, but support is being retired for future immersion conflicts with Odyssey.
  • Dignified Elders - not needed.
  • Elemental Dragons - the mod will still work but is buggy and has issues patching properly in the museum.  Display support removed.
  • Even Better Quest Objectives - patch will be maintained by the author.
  • Holds - The City Overhaul - patch will be made and maintained by mod author.
  • Hunterborn - patch not required.  Very minor incompatibilities.
  • Legendary Skyrim Crossbows - mod will still function but there may be some incompatibilities.
  • Open Cities Skyrim - mod and patch have been removed from the Nexus by the author.  No longer supported.
  • Ravengate - the mod will still work but is buggy and has been discontinued by the author.  Display support removed.
  • Skyrim Immersive Creatures - the mod will still work, but only had two displays so patched support is dropped.  Display support removed.
  • Solitude Skyway - patch made and maintained by mod author.  See General Incompatibility Notes below. 
  • Unique Loot - mod has been retired and replaced by the author with 3 versions.  Too much work to maintain.

This is a running list of mods that have conflicts with Legacy of the Dragonborn V5. They will be removed from the list if and when patches are made, or remain here if they continue to not have support.

  • Creation Club - Most of the Legacy team members do not own CC content and therefore we cannot patch it.  There already is content for most CC items in the community, most of which look or function better, and many of which are already in Legacy. A separate Nexus page has been has been provided for CC patches the community is building for Legacy, as a way of centralizing them.  Please note the existence of the page and patches on it, does NOT mean they are supported.  As stated there, it is a convenience only and to use at your own risk and all support questions concerning them should be directed to that page where the caretaker of the page or other CC users can help troubleshoot.
  • Dawnguard/Clan Volkihar Epilogues - Legacy already has a solution built into it to provide all of the path specific relics from the Dawnguard questlines. Do not install this mod.
  • Legacy of the Dragonborn - Furniture Management - the functions of this mod are now incorporated in Legacy.  Remove if installed.
  • Legacy of the Dragonborn - Stutter Begone - Incorrect occlusion panes or bad edits to occlusion planes cause video issues in the safehouse.  Issue was fixed in a Legacy update.  Do not use.
  • Lore Weapon Expansion, Daedric Crescent plugin - Optional plugin for Lore Weapon Expansion.  Do not use.
  • Lore Weapon Expansion, Goldbrand plugin - Optional plugin for Lore Weapon Expansion.  Do not use.
  • Lore Weapon Expansion, Relics of the Crusader plugin - Optional plugin for Lore Weapon Expansion.  Do not use.
  • Moon and Star immersion patch - Legacy's patch has a vanilla friendly implementation of the MAS immersion patch which waits to start the quest until after the way of the voice has been done. The MAS version alters vanilla quest content in a way that could break or interfere with other mods or the vanilla game. This patch should not be used with Legacy's MAS patch.
  • Simply Knock - As of V5.3.3 Auryen will lock the museum at night (player has keys to access it), but something with this mod causes the doors to remain locked all the time. Until a patch is made, you will need to ensure you have a key to access the museum, and console unlock the door if for some reason you can't get in initially in order to get a key.
  • Skyrim Unbound - Because of obvious immersion and canonical conflicts, as well as potential issues with how Unbound alters the main quest early on to allow the choice to be dragonborn or not (which Legacy depends on), until a patch is made by Unbound's author or others in their team or the Legacy team who are familiar with it, this mod will likely cause conflicts.
  • The People of Skyrim - An included Tree LOD sticks up in front of the museum and cannot be patched out. You can fix this by re-running DynDOLOD and/or SSELODGen.
  • Tramp's Rest - The mod includes an old version of DBM_DynamicDisplayScript.pex (v4) that will be incompatible with Legacy v5.
  • Undaunted - Until a patch is made by someone, this mod is incompatible with Legacy and we highly advise not to use it in general as the mod will use items from any loaded mod in its reward system, which at face value is a neat concept, but MANY items are scripted and used as unique items, quest items and are key elements to mod quests and other content. Just like with Reproccer throwing things on leveled lists willy-nilly, this is not a responsible way to mod and risks breaking quests. So until we have full understanding of how this mod works and a patch is made, we cannot support issues when this mod is in use.
  • X Box Controller Interface - Use of an Xbox controller on PC will cause a CTD when triggering Arkayn's Toolbag menu options. This is a game engine interface issue and there is no known solution short of using keyboard and mouse to use the menu option on the bag.  This has been fixed in Legacy 5.4.2.

General Compatibility Notes

Note on 3rd party patches/Hall of the Forgotten patch curation
Any mod which does not have the Auryen "seal of approval" logo on its description page is a 3rd party, unsupported patch/addon. We will give no support and no advice concerning these patches as a general rule. Many are for unstable, lore and canon breaking mods or just do not fit within the scope of Legacy lore. Unsupported mods do not have space assignments given to them, and as such any that appear in the museum outside of the Hall of the Forgotten 3rd party curation addon, may have officially endorsed content already assigned or assigned in the future which will occupy the same space. All of these patches and projects are "use at your own risk" and may void any support from the development team if any major conflict issues arise.

Persistent Reference and Object Mover

The author of tool himself is very candid in acknowledging that this tool is not intended for regular users or actual gameplay.  It is intended for fairly advanced modders doing testing/troubleshooting.  We do not offer support for games where you have this installed.

Mannequin Replacers
If you are using any kind of mannequin replacer, you MUST switch Legacy's mannequin option to male only, as any mannequin replacer will conflict with the Legacy specific female manequins and often causes crashes.

Auto-Equip functions

Things like the SkyUI remote equip function should frankly never be used for most items. Anything that has an onequip script function will fail to fire. In Legacy's case, the visage set will not function properly and the Ayleid Waystone will also malfunction. Scripted gear which uses an OnEquip or OnUnEquip script event to apply special functions/effects or perks, will fail when used with these systems.

Note on Vanilla Main Quest and Dragonborn status
Legacy depends on the elements of the canonical main quest as prerequisites for various quests and displays, and any mod which alters, circumvents or completely disables any elements of the main quest has the potential to break Legacy of the Dragonborn's quest progression or at very least game immersion. We do not endorse the use of "non-dragonborn player character playthroughs" and can't give support for it. This IS called Legacy of the DRAGONBORN after all.

Third party combination patches and item swapping
Any patch that dynamically swaps an item for another has the potential to render items undisplayable in the museum. Examples include certain combination patches for WACCF, Heavy Armory, and CCOR.  You will need to provide your own conflict resolution in such cases.

Solitude Skyway
Solitude Skyway has recently been patched by the author to work correctly with Legacy v5.  However, since this is a patch and not a rework of the core mod, the underlying structural issue is still present.  This means be aware that other Solitude Skyway patches should not be used in conjunction with this new Legacy patch as the forms are completely different, as noted by the author on their page.

You do NOT need to use it to play the game, but if you do use it, you need to upgrade to 2.76 or later or you will experience problems. Note: the most current version will be posted in the STEP forums.

Auto Looting Mods
While not directly incompatible, there is a risk that ANY quest mod will have issues with auto-looters since many mods place quest items for script based handling inside active cells, inside the void area. The auto-looters often can still grab these. Make sure that your auto loot range is not ridiculously high and is set to ignore quest items. We don't support games where auto looters are installed.

Similar to auto-looters, AddItemMenu is not directly incompatible, but requires considerable self-discipline to use correctly.  Adding items that are flagged by quests can break those quests and lead to undesired behavior in your game.  We don't support games where AddItemMenu is installed.

Project Proteus, Proteus, PROTEUS Mod Explorer and Spawner, Ethereal Tools Backup-Restore-Cloud Deposit
These are mods that provide a front end menu for console command scripts covering a wide array of actions and functions with far-reaching consequences.  As such, there is easy potential to break quests or even your whole game.  We don't support games where any of them are installed.

Legacy of the Dragonborn Storage Control Cube
There are already many mechanisms to shorten the time it takes to return to the museum to drop things off.  Hacking into the musuem's systems from any location is not a a good idea, if for no other reason than other activity in the player's environment happening while the sorting scripts are running will bog down the engine and potentially result in crashes, unlike the quiet museum which allows proper execution.  Additionally, checking in a bunch of displays before doing the initial museum quest will break things.  We don't support games where this mod is installed.

Sexlab/Lover's Lab mods
LL mods are very resource heavy and affect areas of the system which conflict with heavily modded setups and heavily scripted games. Nobody on the Legacy team utilizes or endorses use of LL content with Legacy as there have been numerous reports of stability concerns which we cannot address. If you choose to utilize these with Legacy, do so at your own risk and seek help at the LL site instead.
