How to install the updated versions of this mod

For the updates to fully work, you must enable this mod before enabling the Survival Mode. To do so:

  1. launch the game, go to "Mods", install the update and then disable this mod,
  2. load your current save (click on "Yes" in the dialogue box that will pop up),
  3. go to "Settings/Gameplay" and disable the Survival Mode,
  4. save your game and quit to the main menu,
  5. go to "Mods" and enable this mod,
  6. load the save you made at step 4,
  7. enable the Survival Mode.

You'll have to repeat this procedure for all the characters you created that are using this mode.



This mod will not load if you do not own the Survival Mode. If you own the Survival Mode but you haven't enabled it, this mod will also be of no use to you either; it will load but it's content will not be available.


Survival Mode: Additions is meant to add things to the Survival Mode, not to modify its mechanics. The only things belonging to the Survival Mode that were modified are

  • adding "warm" keywords to the Wolf armour, gauntlets and boots,
  • adding the "cold" keyword to the Wolf helmet,

that were apparently overlooked.

Otherwise, this mod actually modifies content belonging to the core game; these modifications consisting in:

  • adding keywords to the set of fur armour so that you can craft them in the "Hide" category at the tanning rack,
  • rectifying the protection rates of the smaller fur cuirasses so that they do not protect as well as the full ones,
  • modifying the main "food" levelled lists so that they no longer offer an insane quantity of food,
  • fixing the health regeneration magic effect so that it affects the player's health instead of the heal rate.

The vanilla food lists I've modified are the following:

  • LItemFoodInnCommon
  • LItemBarrelFoodRawMeatSame
  • LItemBarrelFoodSame70
  • LItemBarrelFoodSameSmall
  • LItemFoodSaltSmall

Thank you for using my modest mod!


Great many thanks to Bethesda Game Studios for this marvellous game!
