About this mod

Skyrim is cold. Why doesn't anyone use a blanket while sleeping? Or you know, get inside their bedroll?! This mod aims to fix this, with support for both NPCs and the player.

USE THOSE BLANKETS
aka
SHEETS OF SKYRIM
aka
SKY-BURRITOS



Features and FYIs:

- NPC Support: NPCs will now use a blanket when sleeping, with different support for different types of beds. They will no longer be sleeping on top of the bedroll like complete dimwits. FINALLY.

- Player Support: If using Go To Bed, player can also cover themselves with a blanket. Go To Bed uses the "wait" menu to sleep, so that's exactly how to activate the blanket for the player. While you're lying down, press T (or whatever key you have for waiting) and the blanket will pop up. Pressing "W" (or forward key) will make the blanket disappear. (This is only for the player, NPCs use the blankets automatically)

- No performance hit: There are no cloak spells, looping scripts, or anything like that in the mod. Just a spell that is only active when NPCs are sleeping. 

- Requirements: Spell Perk Item Distributor (SPID) and its requirements (duh)

- Recommended: Sleeping Expanded (For NPC Reactions + Sleeping Animations) and Go To Bed (To see the player character sleep). 

- The catch: The meshes are ugly. No, really. They are very bad. Don't look at them up close. I cherry-picked some for the screenshots, but trust me. They suck. I have 0 knowledge in 3D modelling (or any modelling lol) so I did what I could. I basically butchered vanilla assets until they looked sort of like a blanket. It's, errr... acceptable perhaps... you know... from a distance. Hopefully someone can help by making better models for the mod. If you have the knowledge for this, feel free to save our eyes from these abominations.

Thank you! Your support means a lot!




- Jay, these meshes are bad, and you should feel bad. Shame on you and your cow!
I know :( But hear me out, I've been dreaming of having sheets or blankets in Skyrim for almost 10 years now, so I'll take what we have.

- I use custom animations for my sleeping positions, and the blankets are not matching my position. Help!
Mod was made with the vanilla-like animations of Sleeping Expanded in mind. Obviously, vanilla animations will work too. If you have something else for your sleeping animations, it might or not look good.

- How does this work? Does this affect performance?
It shouldn't affect performance at all. How it works: SPID distributes a spell to suitable NPCs. The spell is only active when a NPC goes to sleep, activated via a native condition check. Once the NPC starts sleeping, mod spawns the corresponding blanket and also despawns it after the NPC wakes up. What this means is you can sleep easy (and under a blanket) knowing that the mod doesn't include a cloak spell or similar methods.

- While wearing a certain armor or using custom body scales, I can see some clipping through the blanket! How comes?
I've "bulked up" the sheets considerably to account for NPCs wearing armor, or mods that change body size per race, etc. However, it is possible you might see some clipping in some cases. Not much I can do.

- Wow, how the hell did this take 10 years to make?
I'm not sure honestly, but I had enough waiting and decided to give it a try. Someone did tackle sleeping bags in the past however: Hoamaii made a mod focused on bedrolls back in 2016 that did indeed include blankets. Those models are actually good, so feel free to check the mod out: Skyrim Sleeping Bags SE.

- Any big incompatibilities? Will it work with Campire bedrolls? Or custom beds?
No big incompatibilities, CTDs, or anything like that. No vanilla records have been edited. Worst case scenario: the blanket won't spawn if the mod doesn't recognize the bed. Campfire has a patch so you can chill in your tent inside your bedroll. If you're using a mod that changes the location of the player on the bed, a patch will be required or there might be clipping.

- I need MOAR mods!
Feel free to check a quick summary of my mods these past 2 years! Take a peek and you might walk out with a couple new mods for your insatiable mod addiction perfectly normal hobby.
