SunHelm is a survival and needs mod that tries to stay as streamlined as possible, while still including a full set of features to work with. Customization is an important factor with this mod, and almost every aspect can be tweaked or toggled in the MCM menu.

Some of SunHelm's main features are:

  • Needs system's that include Hunger, Thirst, and Fatigue
  • A hypothermia system has been added in 2.0.0.
  • Seasons
  • Overhauled Diseases
  • Integrated compatibility with many mods, and patch support for others
  • Support for vampires, werewolves, and now Liches in 2.0.0
  • Customizable widgets for your needs and cold.
  • Hotkey support for many of the more important things.
  • Support for popular camping mods such as Campfire, Campsite, and Camping Lite.
  • Optional Campfire skill tree
  • Many other smaller features that don't need their own bullet point

Requirements for the main mod:

Hard Requirements
  • SkyUI
  • SKSE
  • Powerofthree's Papyrus Extender

Optional Requirements (Skyrim 1.5.97)
  • Survival Control Panel - (Do note the warmth system for VR is different, so this does not apply there, especially since SCP doesn’t work on VR)
  • JContainers SE (Required for MCM profiles to work)
  • If you want to use the Campfire skill tree, then Chesko's Campfire is required.


Please take a look at the FAQ articles on the page or check out the google site before asking a question or reporting a bug, as many of your questions are likely answered there.

- I am far more likely to be able to answer questions at the Discord than the modpage.

SunHelm now includes SkyUI - Survival Mode Integration (Thank you gonDragon) to allow display of armor warmth

- You can create your own patches by following the guide video below, and/or looking at the article attached to this modpage.

Survival Spoof:

- SunHelm uses the survival spoof if you have the cold system turned on. If you don't know what this means:

Skyrim has a few things built into the base game that are meant for Survival Mode. SunHelm makes use of some of this built in functionality.

This includes arrow weight, sleep to level up, and warmth ratings in the UI among other things. Check Survival Control Panel's modpage for more details.

- Using Survival Control Panel will allow you to turn on/off certain aspects of the spoof that you do not like such as arrow weight or sleep to level up.
