Alpha 914

Alpha 914 has been released today. A lot of changes have occurred since alpha 806. The primary change in this alpha is that all followers are now in the Real Outfits system. They will choose their own casual, formal, and if applicable, faction specific clothing. They will not wear armour inside cities, towns, or settlements unless in combat, or the player has their weapon drawn. This does however rely on the game to correctly state your location – there are several locations where the game incorrectly states your location – this will result in a brief outfit change.

The USLEEP Migration

USLEEP (The Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch) has recently been released. Until now Yagisan’s Expanded Skyrim has relied on the individual unofficial patches as a required dependency.

Given that USLEEP was released right before Fallout 4 it may be some time, if ever, that other mods … Read more

Yagisan’s Expanded Skyrim is configured in such a way that the MCM must load, before Yagisan’s Expanded Skyrim can configure itself and run. They reported that the mod was working correctly, but there was no MCM. They were not sure how long the menu had been missing, as it had not been checked for some time. Confirmation I needed to reproduce this bug myself for confirmation. As I had not touched the MCM script in months, I … Read more

New Beginnings

Hello and welcome to Yagisan’s Expanded Skyrim. I’m Yagisan, and as one of the pilot modders to launch on ModUnion I’m very excited to be part of this new venture. What is it ? Yagisan’s Expanded Skyrim aims to be the most comprehensive follower overhaul for Skyrim. Every aspect of all followers, from perks, to spells, combat styles, special abilities, artificial intelligence, and even outfits are carefully selected for a more enjoyable Skyrim experience. The first time I played Skyrim I was happy to see there was a follower system. I however soon learned that there was no practical difference between say Lydia, Faendal, or J’zargo. Each follower was just … Read more
