About This File
Silent Dogs of Skyrim
March 3rd, 2017, Skyrim Special Edition version:
To use this mod with Skyrim Special Edition, download the file named SilentDogsOfSkyrimSE.zip and extract its content into your Data files folder, exactly as you would do for the original Skyrim.
Once this done, launch the game, click on "mods" on the menu page and place it at the lowest place possible in your load order, using the "X" and arrow keys.
If you mainly play on first person view and you can no longer stand dogs barking in your ears while you are crawling in a dangerous dungeon, this mod is for you! It makes the dogs silent, especially when they follow you; (they keep barking in some circumstances).
Consequently, people will tend to say "stupid dog!" or "good dog!" to dogs who greeted them silently. I haven't managed to find a work around for this, sorry.
For some reason, this mod doesn't work well, if not at all, if you play on third person view. I have no idea at all why it is so.
Download the archive and extract both the esp and bsa files into your ~:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim\Data directory. Start the launcher, click on "Data Files" and make sure that the mod is activated.
Remove both the esp and bsa files from your Data directory.
None whatsoever, the dogs not being directly modified.
To Bethesda Games Studios for making this marvellous game and providing us thousands of hours of sheer pleasure!
