  25.      1. Manual Installation
  27. *****************************************************************
  29. 1. Unzip the contents of to your Skyrim Data folder. Below is a list
  30.    of the default Skyrim installation locations:
  32.         C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data
  34.                         or for 64-bit Windows:
  36.         C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data
  38. 2. Confirm you have the following files in your Skyrim Data folder:
  40.         Wyrmstooth.esp
  41.         Wyrmstooth.bsa
  43. 3. Run the Skyrim Launcher and make sure Wyrmstooth.esp appears in Data Files and has
  44.    a tick next to it.
  46. 4. Start the game.
  48. 5. To begin the quest, wait for Theodyn Bienne to find you or speak to Lurius Liore at the
  49.    Bannered Mare in Whiterun once you meet quest starting requirements.
  52. *****************************************************************
  54.      2. Best Practice
  56. *****************************************************************
  58. - Keep a save from before you installed Wyrmstooth, just in case you need to roll back.
  59.   You should do this before installing any mod that contains script files.
  61. - Document any changes you've made to any ini files, or backup any ini files you modify.
  62.   If you've made any lod z-fighting ini tweaks you may want to consider reversing them
  63.   as they are known to cause infinite load screens both on Wyrmstooth and in the vanilla
  64.   game.
  66. - Always make sure Wyrmstooth is loaded AFTER the official DLC and unofficial patches.
  67.   When in doubt, load it as the last master file in your load list.
  69. - If you cannot find any Wyrmstooth NPCs in the Bannered Mare in Whiterun, DO NOT use
  70.   the placeatme console command to create a copy of any Wyrmstooth actors. Follow the
  71.   steps in the Troubleshooting section to make sure you've successfully loaded the mod.
  73. - If you do come across a problem, do not uninstall and reinstall Wyrmstooth. You're
  74.   likely going to compound your problem. Instead, see the Troubleshooting section below
  75.   for a solution or post a question on the Nexusmods or Steam forums.
  77. - Do not keep multiple copies of Wyrmstooth files in the Skyrim\Data folder. You should
  78.   only have ONE Wyrmstooth.esp file and ONE Wyrmstooth.bsa file.

  398.      4. F.A.Q.
  400. *****************************************************************
  402. Q. What patch level is required?
  403. A. You should be running 1.8 or higher.
  405. Q. Do I need Dawnguard, Hearthfire or Dragonborn to play Wyrmstooth?
  406. A. No, neither of these are required to play Wyrmstooth.
  408. Q. Do I need any other additional mods or plugins like SKSE?
  409. A. No, nothing else is required except Skyrim.
  411. Q. What ENB did you use to take the screenshots?
  412. A. For the screenshots I used K ENB.
  414. Q. I really liked this mod, what can I do to show my support?
  415. A. Tell your friends about it, endorse and vote it on Nexus Mods or rate it on Steam so others
  416.    can share in the adventure, I really appreciate it.
  418. Q. Is the mod stable?
  419. A. There are no known crashes caused specifically by Wyrmstooth. If you are experiencing
  420.    intermittent crashes, try lowering your graphics settings or reconsider how many retexture
  421.    mods you need as you may be overburdening your system.
  423. Q. Is development of Wyrmstooth complete?
  424. A. For now consider the project complete, however I may extend the main questline in the future
  425.    depending on how many people are still interested in the mod.
  427. Q. How much time did you spend working on Wyrmstooth?
  428. A. About 2000 hours and counting.
  430. Q. OK i've loaded the mod. How does the questline begin?
  431. A. The quest begins once you're at atleast level 10 and have atleast been summoned by the
  432.    Greybeards in the main quest. An imperial courier named Theodyn Bienne will track you down
  433.    and starts from the Bannered Mare in Whiterun. You should run into him if you head towards
  434.    Whiterun using any of the main roads. Alternatively he should be able to find you if you
  435.    wait for 24 hours in any of the major cities. Regardless of where you are in the world,
  436.    he should find you eventually.
  438. Q. What kind of performance impact does Wyrmstooth have on Skyrim?
  439. A. The overall impact on performance should be negligible to non-existent. Wyrmstooth is a
  440.    quest/new lands mod, it doesn't make any gameplay changes. Most of the adventure takes
  441.    place in a separate Wyrmstooth worldspace. At most you'll have 7 new NPCs in Skyrim before
  442.    travelling to Wyrmstooth. If you do experience performance loss or instability see
  443.    "Q. Is the mod stable?" and make sure Wyrmstooth.esp is the last master file loaded in your
  444.    load list.
  446. Q. Is Wyrmstooth available on Xbox or PS3?
  447. A. Unfortunately not, it's for PC only. Mods cannot be ported to consoles.
  450. *****************************************************************
  452.      5. Troubleshooting
  454. *****************************************************************
  456. Q. I can't find Lurius Liore at the Bannered Mare nor can I find Theodyn Bienne.
  457. A. Open the console using the tile key (`) and type in the following command then press enter:
  459.         getstage wtdragonhunt
  461.    If the console says 'Item wtdragonhunt not found for parameter Quest' that means the mod
  462.    has not yet been loaded. Make sure it is being loaded by your mod manager. If you cannot
  463.    find the Wyrmstooth.esp or Wyrmstooth.bsa files in your Skyrim\Data folder make sure you've
  464.    downloaded the mod and installed it to the correct location.
  466.    If it returns '0' firstly make sure you've unloaded any mods that modify the Bannered Mare
  467.    then try the following:
  469.         1. Open the console and type: help Lurius
  470.         2. You should see a NPC_ record. Note the first two numbers (ONLY!)
  471.         3. Type: prid ##0218D0 (replace ## with those first two numbers)
  472.         4. Type: enable
  473.         5. Type: moveto player
  474.         6. Type: setstage wtdragonhunt 10
  476.    Ideally try doing this in Whiterun so Lurius doesn't have to travel as far to reach his
  477.    sandbox area.
  479. Q. I can't speak to Theodyn; he doesn't say anything at all. Nor does Lurius Liore.
  480.    (and by 'at all' I mean they're completely silent and not even delivering their idle lines)
  482. A. If Lurius and Theodyn are delivering their idle lines but aren't saying anything quest-
  483.    specific that means you simply don't yet meet quest starting requirements. This isn't a
  484.    bug, it's to ensure you don't get sent to the island too early.
  486.    Mods that disable NPC greetings under certain circumstances such as Sneak Tools have been
  487.    known to prevent Theodyn from greeting the player successfully. This isn't an issue with
  488.    Sneak Tools per se, that's just how the cowl dynamic appears to work.
  490.    TL;DR: Remove your cowl, helmet, or what ever it is that's covering your face.
  492.    Another known cause is running two copies of Wyrmstooth.esp at the same time. In the
  493.    Skyrim\Data folder you should only have one Wyrmstooth.esp file and one Wyrmstooth.bsa
  494.    file. If you're missing the Wyrmstooth.bsa file for some reason try installing the mod
  495.    manually from Nexusmods.
  497.    Several players have also found that Collector's Vault was somehow preventing NPCs from
  498.    speaking. Unloading this mod may restore dialogue but this may be more of a load order
  499.    issue on their end than anything else.
  501.    If you have a loose Wyrmstooth.SEQ file in your Skyrim\Data or Skyrim\Data\SEQ folders,
  502.    remove it.
  504.    And finally, make sure Wyrmstooth.esp is the last master file in your load list.
  506.    If NPCs added by other mods are also silent then you have something very wrong with your
  507.    setup. If you've installed Wyrmstooth correctly you shouldn't have any problems speaking
  508.    to anyone.
  510. Q. I can't find the mercenaries on the road to Falkreath.
  511. A. If you have a mod installed that deletes the XMarker 0008F648, Wyrmstooth won't know where
  512.    to place the mercenaries. This is XMarker is part of vanilla Skyrim.
  514.    If you can't work out which mod is deleting this XMarker, you can skip Dragon Hunt using
  515.    the following console command:
  517.         setstage wtdragonhunt 120
  519.    Starting the mod under version 1.13 or earlier and upgrading to version 1.14 or later
  520.    before finishing Dragon Hunt may also break this quest due to the changes made in 1.14.
  521.    Either roll back to 1.13 and finish Dragon Hunt then upgrade or reload a save taken
  522.    prior to starting Dragon Hunt and try again.
  524. Q. The game crashes or hangs or my screen is just a solid color when I enter or exit an area.
  525. A. Download the Wyrmstooth.ini file from Nexusmods and copy it to the same folder as your
  526.    Wyrmstooth.esp and Wyrmstooth.bsa files.
  528. Q. I lost my follower after falling down the shaft into Dimfrost.
  529. A. They'll be waiting for you outside the dwemer elevator once you reach the surface if they
  530.    cannot make the fall down the shaft in the crypt.
  532. Q. The game gets stuck loading the Luminatory area in Dimfrost.
  533. A. If you've made any lod z-fighting ini tweaks, reverse them. Also the memory tweak in SKSE
  534.    has been known to fix this issue.
  536. Q. The game seems to be crashing sporadically after I've arrived in Wyrmstooth.
  537. A. Random crashes can be caused by a number of things:
  539.    1. If it crashes as soon as you arrive on Wyrmstooth or shortly thereafter, install the
  540.       Wyrmstooth Travel Crash Hotfix on Nexusmods or Steam. There is a bug in the game
  541.       engine that causes a crash if the game cannot read an XWM music file from a BSA archive.
  542.       This fix prevents custom music playing on Wyrmstooth.
  544.    2. If that doesn't solve it download the Wyrmstooth Unpacked BSA file and extract the
  545.       Music folder to your Skyrim Data folder.
  547.    3. If you have an ENB installed, try installing ENBoost and Sheson's memory patch. I can't
  548.       tell you how many times this has solved random crashes. Also maybe reconsider how many
  549.       texture and lighting mods you need to install as you might be overloading your system.
  551. Q. I can't seem to talk to the wolf Faelor.
  552. A. Known issue, I think it might have something to do with the state of the actor not
  553.    resetting to idle after engaging in combat. A workaround is to either fast travel to a
  554.    nearby location and return or use 'enable' and 'disable' console commands to reset Faelor.
  555.    The Unofficial Skyrim Patch (UKSP) also seems to solve this problem.
  557. Q. Lurius isn't taking me to Wyrmstooth, after speaking to him at Solitude he runs away.
  558. A. This issue seems related to upgrading Wyrmstooth from a really old version to the latest
  559.    version after starting Dragon Hunt but before completing Barrow of the Wyrm. Use these
  560.    console commands to fix the situation:
  562.         1. Open the console (`) and click on Lurius to get his reference id (##0218D0).
  563.         2. Type the following console command: coc WyrmstoothDocks01
  564.         3. Type the following console command: moveto player
  565.         4. Type the following console command: setstage wtbarrowofthewyrm 50
  567.    If that doesn't work, just head to the barrow and read the bandit journal to get the
  568.    questline back on track.
  570. Q. The dragon won't fight me during the final battle. It just keeps circling the settlement.
  571. A. Be patient. There will a delay, moreso if the dragon is far away when you enter the
  572.    mining settlement. If it's been a minute and the dragon still isn't attacking, try:
  574.         Type the following console command: setstage wtbarrowofthewyrm 250
  575.         Target the dragon with the console and type: setav aggression 3
  577.    Just note that you need to be within the walls of the mining settlement before the dragon
  578.    starts attacking. It won't attack while you're still on the road or far afield. The
  579.    will not attack you while you're still on the road to the mining settlement.
  581. Q. The town isn't rebuilding after I've defeated the dragon. I've collected my reward from
  582.    Lurius and it's been more than a week in-game.
  583. A. Known issue when upgrading from 1.12 to 1.13 after finishing Barrow Of The Wyrm. Caused
  584.    by me goofing some scripting. Sorry! Anyway, use 'help Lurius 4' and note the first two
  585.    digits of the NPC_ record and use them in place of ## in the following console commands:
  587.         prid ##02B33E
  588.         enable
  589.         prid ##02B340
  590.         enable
  591.         prid ##02B341
  592.         enable
  594. Q. LOD mesh (very low texture resolution objects) isn't disappearing when I get closer.
  595. A. Known issue with Warburg's Paper Map. This issue appears to affect Solstheim, Falskaar
  596.    and other mods/dlc that add new land masses.
  598. Q. I don't see any map markers for a specific Wyrmstooth quest.
  599. A. This is a problem with the vanilla game if you have too many active quests at one time.
  601. Q. I get an infinite load screen when trying to travel back to Skyrim.
  602. A. If you have any mods installed that modify the docks at Solitude you may need to
  603.    unload them. Both the map marker and the NPC at the Red Wave on Wyrmstooth link to a
  604.    vanilla xmarker at the docks at Solitude. If another mod deletes that xmarker the game
  605.    won't know where to put you and you'll either get an infinite load screen or a crash.
  607.    Such mods are also likely to break the vanilla side quest "The Dainty Sload" as it shares
  608.    the same xmarker.
  610.    A message to other mod authors out there: never delete vanilla xmarkers.
  612.    You may also find that Safety Load ( fixes
  613.    issues with infinite load screens.
  615. Q. Nexus Mod Manager is reporting the following warning:
  617.    'WARNING: This file has the file extension .esp. but its file header marks it as an esm!'
  619. A. This isn't a problem, just ignore it.
  621. Q. The gate Alberthor wants me to open is already open.
  622. A. This can only occur if the draugr to be controlled is placed next to the lever to be
  623.    activated which under normal circumstances should never happen. The solution is to enter
  624.    the following console command then continue on normally.
  626.         setstage wtbarrowofthewyrm 160
  628. Q. Lurius and the mercenaries are stuck at the mining settlement and won't move, Alberthor
  629.    isn't saying anything outside the closed gate, the dragon isn't flying away after
  630.    encountering him in his lair and the dead aren't being raised, etc...
  631. A. You're most likely experiencing script lag. NPCs will trigger certain scenes only at
  632.    specific stages of the quest, but if papyrus is lagging these scenes may be delayed or
  633.    may not occur at all. One solution is to tweak the priority given to papyrus using the
  634.    following Skyrim.ini entries:
  636.    [Papyrus]
  637.    fUpdateBudgetMS=800.0
  638.    fExtraTaskletBudgetMS=800.0
  639.    fPostLoadUpdateTimeMS=2000.0
  640.    iMinMemoryPageSize=256
  641.    iMaxMemoryPageSize=512
  642.    iMaxAllocatedMemoryBytes=153600
  644.    If you're using BOSS you might also want to make sure your load order is properly sorted.
  646. Q. I see floating rocks/grass in interiors or grass isn't showing up on Wyrmstooth.
  647. A. This is an issue with the base game. The Unofficial Skyrim Patch (UKSP) appears to fix
  648.    this issue for the most part. The Wyrmstooth.ini file also solves this.
  650. Q. When I start up Skyrim the game gets stuck on the loading screen.
  651. A. If you're using a merged patch, update it. There's also an old Requiem patch that seems
  652.    to cause the game to hang when used in conjunction with the latest version of Wyrmstooth,
  653.    so make sure you've updated that if you're using Requiem.

  658.      6. Compatibility
  660. *****************************************************************
  662. The following is a list of modified defaults. This information is provided for other mod
  663. developers in an effort to avoid any compatibility issues with other mods. New references
  664. associated with this mod are prefixed with "WT" as part of naming convention. Changes to
  665. standard locations were kept to a minimum to avoid any potential clashes.
  667. Worldspaces:
  668. Tamriel
  670. Tamriel Worldspace:
  671. SolitudeRedWaveExterior (-17,22)
  673. Locations:
  674. SolitudeDocksLocation
  676. Basically I attached SolitudeDocksLocation to cell -17,22 so Lurius knows when he's arrived
  677. at the Red Wave.
  679. Wyrmstooth also reads an xmarker in Tamriel cell -1,-19 and in WhiterunBanneredMare. If
  680. these locations are changed by other mods it may affect the quest 'Dragon Hunt'.
  683. *****************************************************************
  685.      7. Known Issues
  687. *****************************************************************
  689. A list of known issues. Some of these may be fixable, others may not be if they are tied to
  690. game-engine related bugs or limitations. Problems introduced by mod conflicts, bad load order
  691. or bad .ini settings are not included in this list.
  693.  - Saving and reloading a save while the imperial carriages are moving will cause them to
  694.    spazz out. This seems to be caused by a limitation in the object tethering function. It
  695.    won't break the quest but it might make for an amusing Youtube video...
  697.  - Sometimes the water room in the Luminatory may not reset itself immediately if you've
  698.    already been through this section before. Exiting the Luminatory and re-entering should
  699.    cause the door to open and the water level function to reset. Otherwise use the other lift.
  701.  - FPS hit when entering Wyrmstooth Settlement, especially for the first time. Might be
  702.    related to smoke and fire emitters. Performance improves later on in the adventure as the
  703.    rubble and debris is tidied up and the settlement rebuilds. A possible future workaround
  704.    might be to make the mining settlement a closed worldspace, but I don't like closed cities.
  706.  - Summoning spells may not work if you aim at a road. Go figure.
  708.  - The error checker in the latest version of TES5Edit complains about packages such as
  709.    WTRandEnc02TravelBackAndForth using a MISC reference. As far as I can see these packages
  710.    are set up identically to the vanilla packages they were based on such as
  711.    WE12TravelBackandForthMarker1then2Package. This error does not affect stability and the
  712.    random encounters function correctly so it might just be a reporting glitch. If anyone has
  713.    any ideas let me know.
  716. *****************************************************************
  718.      8. Suggestions
  720. *****************************************************************

  742.      9. Uninstallation
  744. *****************************************************************
  746. Treat uninstalling Wyrmstooth the same as you would uninstalling a Bethesda DLC. The ideal
  747. method would be to revert to a save you took prior to installing it. If for some reason
  748. that's not an option, you can refer to SuperSajuuk's document:
RAW Paste Data
