DESCRIPTION

This mod adds 491 guards to the game.
Lite versions add 208 guards to the game.
ALL MALE and ALL FEMALE versions available.

Guards respawn.

Guards are added to All 9 cities, towns, mills, farms, and some mines.

NOTE: During Civil War Battles, you might attack these guards by accident and get a bounty.
You can disable during the battle and then enable my mod, if it bothers you .

* Thanks to terickson227  for pointing this out and providing a link to my mod on his mod page. *

*** NO SCRIPTS *** TESVEDIT CLEANED ***

They stay at their posts and return after fighting. I use a simple travel AI package for this. The more AI packages that are added will put more strain on the game. I kept them from sandboxing and the preferred paths, so they won't bump into all the NPCs added by mods.

NOTE: New Sandboxing versions of my 9 main files.
Guards will sandbox, wander (patrol) and stand at post for approximately 2 minutes of real time.


They will keep their original guard armor after Civil War. Guard armor replacers should work if they use the original armor as base. I may upload a mod that keeps all guards armors original after CW, if I have time.

I have added 100 new faces for these new guards, that will be randomly selected.
Might add more, if time permits.
65 male and 35 female (greater chance of male guard).

Health offset increased. (+ 250).

ADDING GUARDS USING GAME CONSOLE


You can add guards anywhere you want:

- Stand in front of where you want them to be and
in the game console type: 

player.placeatme XX###### 1 1.
 
- The extra 1 is intentional, by the way. It places the guard in front of you (0 for behind).
 
- The first 2 numbers (XX) is the load order number of my mod.
Don't forget to save after adding your guards.

Example:  Adding a Whiterun Guard in my game.
Extra Guards load order number in my game is 4C, so I would type -

player.placeatme 4C0012DB 1 1

Once you have added your guards and are happy with their placement,
then don't forget to make a save. 
If you don't, then you will have to add them again.

SE Versions:


Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use OPEN FACE GUARD HELMETS by axonis and Ice855 if you want helmets shown in images.

Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use CLOAKS OF SKYRIM by Nikinoodles and Nazenn, if you want to have cloaks show up on this mod. If not, no cloaks


LE Versions - No SE Versions available - please check:


Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use HOLD GUARDS KEEP ARMOR by terickson227, if you want all guards to keep original armor like mine.

Optional (NOT REQUIRED): Use TOWN GUARD ARMOR RETEXTURE by Gulch, if you want the guard armors shown in the images. Great mod.


***** LOAD ORDER *****

Use LOOT - You can keep this pretty low. It only adds new NPCs to the game.





INSTALL/UNINSTALL


1) Use NMM. 

*** DO NOT UPDATE - Uninstall old file - make a clean save - install new file - load clean save ***

CLEAN SAVE = save game after uninstalling old file and then exit game (in other words a save without Extra Guards installed)

2) Add/remove files and ESP manually if need be.
