Download Alternate Start - Live Another Life 2.3.6a

alternate start helgen roleplay character generation

Misery and despair have haunted you all your life. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, you've been arrested and thrown in the dungeons. Your trial was supposed to be weeks ago, only nobody has come for you. It's been so long since seeing daylight you no longer know what month it is anymore. The dungeon is cold, damp, and worse still, you're running out of food. At least you have that leak in the wall for water. It seems as though you've been forgotten, soon to rot away and die. The eight have forsaken you! Or... have they?

Live Another Life provides an alternative means to start the game for those who do not wish to go through the lengthy intro sequence at Helgen. You will be given the opportunity to choose your race and then choose a new life for your character to lead. A wide variety of choices will be available. What you choose will have a lasting impact, so choose carefully or the gods may forsake you again!

What's New in Version 2.3.6a (See full changelog)

  • Reworked the method for setting Tullius and Ulfric aside. They will both be disabled temporarily instead of trying to move them around to confine them. The only exceptions now will be for soldier starts, which don't require going to Helgen, and the campsite start, which triggers the events that would re-enable them both anyway. This should avoid some previously unknown Papyrus timing issues that were getting in the way too.
  • Hilde's scene in Riverwood after Alduin has appeared should now play out properly if the player visits Riverwood before advancing Before the Storm (MQ102).
  • Start options for Solitude will now be disabled if Giskard's Return to Helgen is installed.
  • The second collapse inside Helgen Keep has been removed and any live soldiers that needed to be killed will be. This allows access to the whole keep in order to loot it if desired. The bridge collapse will remain in place though so you will still need to go around to the other side if you want to rescue Hadvar or Ralof.
  • A dialogue bug with Irileth if the player told Sven about the dragon attack instead of Alvor or Gerdur was fixed.
  • Retro script update messages will only be logged if they should actually run.

Couldn't wait to play this, have a note and a bug to report though. First the note, the lighting in the opening scene is really dark for character gen, I can see the character clearly. Secondly, the buglet, I chose the Imperial Soldier life and my hands are still tied. After talking to Legate Rikke, my hand are still tied. XD

Er. I have no idea how the lighting is so dark for so many people. I'm not even using lighting mods and I had to scale it back because it was making the chargen setup too washed out looking.

Do you mean tied up as in fully bound still? I know it starts you off with your wrists crossed, but if you ready a weapon it goes away. I wasn't able to find anything in the scripting that even remotely indicated how the hands get unbound during the Helgen quest, so I assumed that since I didn't tell them to get bound that they wouldn't be.

Yeah wrists crossed, I couldn't pick anything up, didn't try a weapon. When I drew a weapon that seemed to correct itself. The unbinding is in quest MQ101, result scripts in stages 202 and 240 should give you some clues to refine that if you wish.

Creative notes, the intro is really quite good, but might play better described as a dream sequence. I noticed upon entering the Imperial Soldier life, I didn't buy I was part of that world, everything was still marked as belonging to someone else, there wasn't even a bed I could sleep in in this faction hall. Might be a nice touch to immerse a bit more, not sure if you already planned that. :thumbup:

I'm off to try some more, the shipwreck was great but I was in the ship forever (user error) and would have liked to see more bodies floating about the wreckage XD
