About this mod

This is a collection of fixes that are present in the main game.

Permissions and credits
Besserwisser's Patch
Borrowed from German Besserwisser, from besser (“better”) + Wisser (“knower”). The latter is a neologism from wissen (“to know”, verb).
Noun: Besserwisser (plural Besserwissers)A know-it-all, wiseguy, wiseacre, smart aleck. 

This patch is a collection of fixes. And it's done in the same spirit as 
Nitpicker's Patch. There's also a couple of issues with said patch, and this is supposed to correct some that are present in there.

Nitpicker's Patch is highly recommended (but not required!) as it fixes so much issues of the main game. One can use any version available from the Nitpicker page.

But recommended is to use my Nitpickers Edited Version for Besserwisser's Patch. This is a non-conflicting version where the broken assets are taken out. Please Endorse chuckcash his work is invaluable to The Witcher 3 Modding Community

Please note that this mod is no longer supports NMM installation.
The Witcher 3 Mod Manager will install this correctly (thanks korodik) and Czembro informed me that Vortex intallation does work also.

How to install:
Unzip the insides to your Witcher 3 installation folder, make sure that afterwards there is Witcher 3/dlc/dlcBesserwiser and Witcher 3/mods/modBesserwisser

Use Script Merger if neccessary. There are bucket loads of non-mergeable conflicts, but ignore these with your mods.

New in version 1.6:
  • Fixed Melusine when hit by Aard
  • Fixed DLC beards with Hearts of Stone Mark
  • Added thighs to Pricilla.
  • Fixed parry with Ethereals [SCRIPT FIX]

Besserwisser contains fixes for:
  • BlackSpider fix, which makes the Black Spider to be registered as insectoids, like in bestiary. These are set as spectres in Vanilla game.
  • Yennefer's torso fix, most visible in couch at Corvo Bianco
  • Vespula's torso fix, NPC in sidequest named: Broken Flowers (Torso tweaked more in Version 1.0 so that Irina Renagades torso won't portrude through the shirt
  • Ciri sleeping at Corvo Bianco bed. And the bed itself also fixed.
  • All (But Wild Hunt Ships that already have good and consistent distances) Boat Masts and Boat Hulls now appear at the same time. HMS Oxenfurt-Tretogor 
  • All 400 eye meshes changed to have better "Auto Hide Distance" this should mean no more eyeless NPCs in cutscene background
  • Added a missing stove to Winter White Orchard. Thanks ScoutBr0 for your help!
  • Fixed Vivienne moving to Skellige after finishing Blood and Wine. Must have finished "Ugly Baby". Vivienne will move to the same room Yennefer stayed in Skellige.
  • Added the missing scene. "Cooking for Yennefer" It will be initiated, if Yennefer teleports you to the lake in quest "Disturbance" or you behave with poor manners with the call made with the fixed Megascope. Flow chart added to images
  • Fixed Vernon Roches floating sword, now closer to hip. The Sword is tweaked for All NPC Scabbards 1.22 including DLC, So use that for very best outcome.
  • Fixed Iris' Greatest Fear - Ethereals to be registered as spectres, like in bestiary. Now one can use spectre oil to gain a little upper hand. These were previously set as human.
  • Fixed Wild Horse Cube Shadow
  • Added fixed mage by Gerignak
  • Added fixed Painting of Hierarch Hemmelfart by Gerignak
  • Fixed Triss Bloody and Tortured Appearances not loading (Partly fixes the killing of menge)
  • Fixed Oxenfurt port ship masts disappearings
  • Fixed Novingrad port all ship masts and hulls
  • Reworked Dialogue scene with Irina Vegelbud. Appearing and disappearing well.
  • Margaritta now heals after leaving Dandelions Cabaret. I used these two mods for the best result: Clean skin for Margaritta By Krzych29 and Healed Margarita by Kingsegg
  • Fixed Mulbrydale floating poster. It's now on the dead treetrunk at the south end of the town.
  • Fixed HOS Beard Growth
  • Fixed White Orchard Sun direction now rises from the east and sets to the west, like the rest of the maps.
  • Hair LOD's increase throughout the game to 60
  • Fixed Arinbjorn Blacksmith Dialogue

Coming up in next versions:
  • Fix Kaer Trolde Armourer
  • Fix Dancers and Entertainers

As a rule of thumb. This fix is intended to be a low-priority patch. So other mods should override Besserwisser.
  • For Brutal Blood there's a compatibility patch at the Spider Fix mod.
  • HQFaces have longer loading distances of eyes than mine so it up to you, but that's the only asset-set that is conflicting
  • Next Generation LOD BETA and one should give priority to that mod, just rename the modLOD folder to load before the Bessewisser  and you'll be set. BoatFix did not edit any LODs (Level of Details) for the boats, but only normalizes the loading distances of the different parts of the boats.

I will collect suggestions and findings and maybe even fix issues that I can.
