INTRODUCTION

This mod adds dozens of additional vanilla "fleeing red-winged blackbird flock" special effects throughout the game, with new sound fx, as well as more hawks along cliffs, tundras, forests, and mountain ranges, and more bats in the dungeons. Includes bugfixes for vanilla flocks and hawks. Dirty edits from the original mod have been fixed.

Also available on XBONE and PS4!

VERSION 2.0

  • Ported the mod to Skyrim SSE.
  • Mastered with Update.esm and Hearthfires and copied changed records to the mod.
  • Removed dirty edits.
  • Removed ITM records.
  • Undeleted and disabled deleted records.
  • Checked for errors using xEdit.
  • Fixed the vanilla fxbirdflockfleepine mesh to hide the weird bird marker that was visible in the pine tree near Riverwood Bridge, for example.
  • Replaced the vanilla flock sound with a better one and increased the volume and audio range. The sound only plays between 07:00 and 19:00.
  • Improved the flocking red-winged blackbirds script so they will only flee during daylight hours between 07:00 and 19:00.
  • Included steve40's script fix to stop hawks becoming invulnerable after being killed and reset.

FAQ

Q: The "Skyrim Original" Birds and Flocks had a lot of dirty edits and a reputation for causing CTDs. Will this mod crash my game?
A: Unlikely. I was perhaps the first person to point out all the dirty edits in the original mod, after troubleshooting a CTD problem in my game. I made a personal version hand-cleaned of errors, ITMS and dirty edits, which I used for about 2 years, and the CTD issue was definitely cured in my personal version. The SSE version is based on my stable version of the mod, and I am even more experienced at modding now than I was 4 years ago. Unfortunately, dovahsbane's "cleaned" version only removed some ITM records but retained most dirty edits, and didn't carry forward changes made by Update.esm and the DLCs, so it still caused CTDs.
