Super Simple Lock Bash

Super Simple Lock Bash is out. You can get it on Nexus or Bethesda.net for PC and XB1. You can find links to it here.

I created this a long time ago for the original Skyrim to use with my barbarian character and it was the first mod I started porting over to SSE. Unfortunately, I found that I relied on SKSE to get references to the lock that was being bashed and to get the base damage of the weapon being used to bash the lock. It took a while, but I managed to change that detection over to a Quest Alias. I replaced the base damage in the calculation with the weapon material of the bashing weapon to roughly equate to what it used to be.

This is the last of my existing mods that I wanted to port over the SSE. I’ll start looking at Bathing in Skyrim 2 now, but I there is a very high chance that I won’t make much progress until after SKSE64 is released.

Super Simple Needs

Super Simple Needs is available now on Nexus and Bethesda.net for PC and XB1.

The space for basic needs mods is actually pretty crowded. There are some truly great basic needs out there, like iNeed, Realistic Needs and Diseases, Imps’ More Complex Needs, etc. Chesko is even making his own to go along with Frostfall.

These mods, while great, add a lot of features and restrictions that cause me to spend time managing things I don’t want to manage. They often force me to do “realistic” things that I find cumbersome. There is a lot of demand for these mods, so I understand completely why they exist. On top of that they are some of the best made mods out there. They just don’t really fit in with my style of play.

So, I made my own basic needs mod. I am not trying to compete with these mods; I just wanted a much simpler system for myself so that when I play I am hassled if I don’t take a break to eat and sleep every so often.

You can read details and find download links on the mod page here.

Super Simple Bathing

My first real Skyrim Special Edition mod is now released. I created a stripped down version of Bathing in Skyrim. I left out water detection to prevent conflicts with water mods. Once SKSE64 is released I will investigate recreating my water patcher to reintegrate the need to be standing in water.

Super Simple Bathing is released on Nexus and Bethesda.net for both PC and XB1. I don’t currently have an XB1 to test, so its kind of a risk. I guess I’ll learn a lesson from this pretty quickly, good or bad.

You can find download links and more information on its page here.

Next I plan to release a basic needs mods very similar to Super Simple Bathing called (creatively) Super Simple Needs that will handle hunger and tiredness. I have it complete and tested, but creating all these screenshots, titles, descriptions, etc. for the mod pages takes a lot of time.
