A huge THANK YOU to the Nexus community for placing Grave Gargoyles among the Hot Mods! 


If you're like me and have been disappointed with the vanilla Gargoyles, then this mod is for you.  This mod replaces the vanilla Gargoyle skeleton with a new custom skeleton meant to give the Gargoyles of Skyrim a more proportional, realistic and terrifying appearance. Working within the confines of the vanilla mesh, I enlarged the limbs and made several subtle changes to the Gargoyles, and the result is a Gargoyle that will startle, terrify and immerse you even more into the world of Skyrim. This affects all Gargoyles in Skyrim.

Seeing is believing!!!

Grave Gargoyles uses a custom skeleton for the vanilla Gargoyles and will overwrite any mod that makes changes to the vanilla Vampire Brute skeleton.  Mods that make sweeping changes to vanilla skeletons e.g."Realistic Ragdoll and Force" should be compatible as long as "Grave Gargoyles" 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.

[ [ [ INSTALLATION ] ] ]

Recommend using Nexus Mod Manager or your favorite mod manager.

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

 There is no"esp plugin" with this mod.
