As many can tell I use several mods when I record my journals. I have been asked which mods I have used, so I have listed them in the table below.
|Sounds of Skyrim – The Dungeons
|Adds about 115+ sounds to dungeons that really brings them to life. Players will hear the sounds of any inhabits of the dungeons, as well as sounds from the weather outside if the player is near the entrance.
|Sounds of Skyrim – The Wilds
|This mod focuses on adding sounds to the wilderness of Skyrim. The 115 new sounds add various animal, birds, and insects to the life outside of the cities and dungeons. The time of day, weather, and region all play a part in the sounds that you hear.
|The Sounds of Nature – Fire
|Provides more realistic sounds of fire. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to locate the mod, but when I do, I will link to it here.
