Download When Vampires Attack 2.0.5

dawnguard vampires attack city

A small mod that makes citizens in a village or city run indoors during a random vampire attack. This includes eclipse attacks as well.

This was born out of frustration at seeing the citizens all trying to be a hero and rushing headlong to their doom attacking master vampires. Instead, the citizens will run to safety like smart people should when faced with the horrors of the undead. NPCs who live in the attack location who own a home there will retreat to it. If the attack location has an inn, NPCs who don't live there will flee to the inn, along with any NPCs who live outdoors. If no inn is present the game picks a random interior from the surrounding area and those NPCs will flee there instead.

This should work for any NPCs added by mods as well, up to a limit of 150 in the area. After that, they're on their own. The NPCs chosen are first come, first serve by the game engine.

Guards, members of The Companions, Vigilants of Stendaar, the Dawnguard, and the player's followers/teammates will not run, they will stand and fight. Farm animals will not run either, because they're stupid. That includes your horse.

Installation Requirements

Official Skyrim patch or greater.
Official Dawnguard DLC.

What's New in Version 2.0.5 (See full changelog)

  • Corrected a bad alias check in the MCM menu.



God bless you, this is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, it's frustrating as heck to have npcs killed off in vampire attacks especially considering how often they seem to happen. I love the Dawnguard DLC but to have to deal with dragon threats and vampire threats is a bit too much.

Same here, though I was spared most of the grief because the attacks don't seem to work as well with Open Cities. The one time a conflict actually does some good :P
