Hi, I'm Chesko, and I'd like to welcome you to Frostfall. I've poured countless hours into developing the most fun and immersive Skyrim experience ever. If you like survival gameplay as much as I do, welcome home.
Almost everything about Frostfall is configurable. Frostfall is as easy or as challenging to play with as you want it to be, and the mod was designed with simplicity and intuitiveness in mind. I encourage you to stop reading this page, install the mod, and jump right in. I built Frostfall like it was part of Skyrim all along; you will receive tutorial messages as soon as something important happens, and non-invasive notifications throughout the game to keep you informed of your condition. (These messages are customizable as well!) Let Frostfall itself guide you through your first steps.
If uninstalling the mod, you must shut it down first, or you could do damage to your character or save game that may not be able to be repaired. SkyUI 4.1+ Users: You can shut down or reactivate Frostfall from the Overview page.
The easiest way to get started is to select one of the presets, which will set up all of your options for you. Or, tweak each and every one according to your liking through the in-game configuration system. SkyUI 4.1+'s Mod Configuration Menu is supported!
My goal with Frostfall is to promote immersive, challenging gameplay that's fun to play without making the game a chore. I kept the words "fun" and "seamless" in the forefront of my mind when making design decisions.
Nearly all of the information on these pages is available through Frostfall's in-game help system. Just open Survival Settings, and select Help to browse the in-game help pages. SkyUI 4.1 Users: Go to the Guide page in the MCM to access the in-game Player's Guide.
So go have fun, and stay warm! See you later!
...Still here? Ok, then. Take your time browsing these pages.
Sometimes, with a mod as large as this, bad things happen. I've tried to catch as many bugs as I can, but sometimes things still slip through. Fortunately, I have given you a set of tools to help you solve some of the most common problems you might encounter. Just use Survival Settings, select Help, and then select Troubleshooting. Then, select the problem you are experiencing. This should hopefully put everything right again, and let you get back to adventuring.
If you want / need to disable Frostfall, you can do that at any time by using Survival Settings, selecting Advanced, and click Activate / Shutdown.
While Frostfall now undergoes extensive beta testing before each new release, please back up your save games before you update or install the mod. Making a "clean" save should not be necessary unless explicitly noted. If an update causes a problem for you, please contact me via PM on the site you downloaded my mod from (Skyrim Nexus or Steam Workshop), or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will work with you as best as I can to help resolve your problem.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
I would not pay for any currently existing mod, save Frostfall. This is the only mod that I have encountered that is done to such a professional standard I could mistake it for a Bethesda feature (of course, it's lack of bugs would make me think twice).
I've tried your mod for 3 days (real, not game :P) but always in [a] hot place, like whiterun, today i went to windhelm, walking into a forest with snow falling from the sky, the sound of a cold wind...
