    Hello everyone!
    Thank you for all the feedback and voice offers etc, never thought this would become as popular as it is!
    I'm currently unable to make any changes to the mod as my computer is in a state of disrepair (Cannot use CK atm) but know that I've read and considered all of your requests and suggestions

    Some of you seem to have some minor problems with this and Immersive College of Winterhold, and I'd love to see my own mod and ICoW fully compatible in the future but I just don't have the means to address the issue properly.

    In the meantime I hope you find this mod useful and I still recommend using Magical College of Winterhold with this one to put some life in the College!

    Hi everyone. I'm going to be helping VorpalRunner with updating this mod. :)

    Vorpal and I have plans to continue to add to improve this mod. I'll likely set up a road map soon similar to the one I'm maintaining for my other College mods. In the mean time, please feel free to join Vorpal and me on my little Discord server.

    Man this mod is great, if only Immersive College of Winterhold could have dorms for the npcs added. Obscure's College of Winterhold looks nice, but I don't know if I can pry myself away from Immersive College. Though to be fair I still haven't tried it but I really love Immersive College of Winterhold lol

    Something broken if I can't talk to the added NPCs out the gate/activating them does nothing (like very early - started game in winterhold, ran into college just to make sure installing the whole OCW, ICN, Misc Tweaks, etc. package didn't bork anything with the rest of my LO)? Or they're more like extras/"Uninteresting NPCs" to bring place to life (which is still great just hoping I don't have a conflict and a broken dialogue activator)? Great work & thanks!

      From the description these new NPCs don't have audible voices, so maybe they're talking and you don't see the subtitles? Just a guess. You should be using this mod anyway: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/15109

    I love ur mod it does a lot for my game but i keep getting massive fps drops around the college bridge entry near where faralda greets you, when the new npcs are in the main hall practicing spells during the day. It drops from 60 fps to 45-50 on a good pc a ryzrn 5 3600 and a rtx 2060 super. Please help me i really don't want to drop ur mod i allready use the lite file. I also am using obscure college of winterhold mod

    Edit: Nvm i figuered it wa sactually obscure college of winterhold wich was causing the lag so i switched to immersive college of winterhold for the time beeing

    I'm using the Humans Mer and Beastfolk version with vanilla hair, do I need the facegen patch or the standard facegen for this mod? If it is the latter, it might be a good idea to change the fomod to allow users to select that option without deactivating the HMB plugin first with the next update.

      As of now you merely need to deactivate HMB during the install process to work around this limitation.

    Really like the idea but these atronachs looks really lame. They have magic doors, they don't need extra protection. It looks more like means of intimidation against the students.

    Since there is already "Lite" version with only half of the guardians, i would gladly hug "super-lite" version with none of them :3

      never saw a dragon or two attacking the college? those guards are there for a reason, actually i find it more immersive having strong creature be on guard and it does make me feel a little intimidated as a student, much like filch in hogwarts. might be lame for you but immersive for other.
      but its cool, everyone have their own preference ;)

      Happy to have them but... I would be interested in a version with no atronachs hanging around too

    I use Immersive College of Winterhold and I have no desire to switch. Since ICoW doesn't have extra student dorms and, as far as I can tell, there are currently no patches for that, will these NPCs simply wander around while everyone else is abed and never sleep? How do they interact with Immersive Citizens?

      That's correct.

      Immersive Citizens doesn't edit the college, so there's no conflict there!

      Immersive does add extra dorms, but it would require a patch for them to use them. So unfortunately they don't use them. I would still recommend using it with Immersive college of Winterhold though.

    "I searched the web for mods that might change this in a way that wasn't immersion breaking," seems pretty lame to me as Ondolemar is having a dialogue indicating that he's the one and only nord student in the whole college and this mod adds another one.
    There are a couple of other mods that serve the same purpose as ICN does, but it adds npcs to Saarthal which makes it the best of all of those imo. So thanks for making it. It's a great mod, if you ignore that lore-breaking fact.

      "It's good to see another Nord. I feared I'd be the only one." / "I'd hoped I wouldn't be the only Nord, but I should've known better."

      *Onmund says that after having already met Tolfdir, a Nord. ^^

      Pretty sure he meant a student. Anyway, with my groundbreaking skill, i made him an altmer in my game and am quite happy with that.
