If you are curious if another mod will work with mine, please check it using the Creation Kit or ask the author of the mod if they change either of the following main files.

    My mod will be incompatible with other mods that change:
    PERK VampireFeed
    QUST PlayerVampireQuest


    These control almost everything about your Vampire. If another mod contains different spells and abilities they may overwrite or mess with my own, but any change to the above files will screw things up pretty badly. You may be surprised how many appearance or blood/feeding mods change these files ...


    My mod is currently compatible with:

    Any mod which changes the appearance of Vampires
    • (install their mod first, then mine – my mod does not have any appearance tweaks, so it will not overwrite their changes).
    Any customized race
    • (install their mod first, then mine)
    • You may have to use my "Fix Feeding For Custom Race" customization menu option to be able to feed normally; only use it if you have to.
    • Custom races do not work very well with Dawnguard ...

      The "RaceCompatibility for Skyrim and Dawnguard" mod should work well with my mod, but you have to follow TMPhoenix's directions.
      My mod needs a clean save in between an old version and a new - he outlines a clear procedure how to do a clean save in conjunction with his mod.
      "If you need to do a clean save for Better Vampires, you don't need to remove the RaceCompatibility mod, you NEED to make sure you re-install it WITHOUT the Better Vampires option. Then do your clean save, then re-install Better Vampires and then re-install RaceCompatibility mod WITH the Better Vampire option. Then you need to make sure NMM/BOSS has placed the mods in the correct load order." -TMPhoenix If you do not have Dawnguard or still need help, check with TMPhoenix for troubleshooting.

      Issues and bugs will result if your custom race also modifies the PlayerVampireQuest script ... contact the mod's author.
      Install your custom race, then my mod, and say yes to replace any files.

      The mod author of a custom race may have failed to attach the proper tags so you can be recognized as a vampire ...
      If a custom race does not have a vampire version of that race then others may not recognize you as a vampire in the game and you may be unable to feed. I have a menu option for a workaround that allows you to feed ... but it is only a bandaid and not recommended.

      Mod authors of custom races don't necessarily need to edit PlayerVampireQuest script to be compatible with my mod. Contact your custom race's mod author and ask for a vampire version of their race.
      _______________________________________________

      The author of any custom race can easily make a vampire version of their race (or you can too if you are so inclined):

      1) Load the custom race .esp in the Creation Kit
      2) Open the custom race (i.e. look for LunariRace)
      3) Change the name of the race to yourcustomracenameVampire (i.e. LunariRaceVampire)
      4) Save this as a new race, don't overwrite the original
      5) Open up the race you just created
      6) Add the keywords "Vampire", "ActorTypeNPC", and "ActorTypeUndead" to your new race (General Data, under Keywords)
      7) Add the spells "VampireHuntersSight", "VampirePoisonResist", and "VampireVampirism" to your new race (General Data, under Specials)
      8) Save your new race
      9) Save your custom race .esp and exit the Creation Kit

      _______________________________________________

      After this, you can use the console to "setrace yourcustomracenameVampire" (i.e. setrace LunariRaceVampire) and you'll be able to feed normally and be identified as a vampire in the game.

      NOTE: Be sure you use my menu option to infect yourself with Sanguinare Vampiris and rest 3 days so you have all the vampire perks and scripts running in the background. You cannot just change your race, you have to have the PlayerVampireQuest script running in the background too!

      To cure yourself, use my menu to reset vampirism, cure your disease before 3 days are up, and use the console to "setrace yourcustomracename" (i.e. setrace LunariRace).



    I also highly suggest trying these excellent mods:

    Bloodthirst - Vampire NPCs Can Feed
    Every NPC vampire can feed on characters just like the player.  They can also take bites during combat.
    The vanilla Vampire Lord is a bit clumsy and predictable. He can't be compared to the creatures of the night from classic horror stories. I tried to fix this without making VL too overpowered. If you want to become a true nightmare, this mod is for you. This project aims to make the Vampire Lord form more valuable for the player.

It also features a large variety of craftable camping equipment, including craftable torches. It is highly customizable, and very compatible with most other mods, including Climates of Tamriel, Wet and Cold, worn cloaks, food, timescale, lighting, werewolf, and vampire mods.
    T3nd0s Skyrim Redone
    Skyrim Redone is a modular, full gameplay overhaul for TESV-Skyrim.
    (install it first and then mine, say yes if asked to have my files overwrite his)
    Realistic Needs and Diseases
    The author made this mod because all existing needs mods he found are either too complex or no longer maintained. Some people would rather not to get into calories, nutrition formulas etc.., they want a relatively simple needs mod that blends in with the game, but still has enough functionality to be fun.
    (install it first and then mine, say yes if asked to have my files overwrite his)
    Imps More Complex Needs by Imp of the Perverse
    This is a realism oriented hunger/thirst/sleep mod for Skyrim. It assigns real world nutrition information to all the foods, giving each item its own strengths and weaknesses, and effecting a large array of new stats in addition to the usual hunger/thirst/sleep.
