Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Can you tell me the difference between this and something else?

A1: Because ESP isn’t used in this, you’ll need to:
It doesn’t need any tweaks to function with any mod that adds new instances of vanilla wells.
It doesn’t interfere with modifications that change existing locations.

Q2: Does Animated Water in Wells need patching?

A2: Not unless you use a well mesh replacer

Q3: Can you build a patch using this mod?

A3: Most modifications are distributed with locked permissions, except this one, which has open permissions. I can’t utilize their assets to build your fix until I have permission. You must either persuade the writers to create it or get their permission.

Q4: Why is the water in some of the wells so high?

A4: Because some of the wells are built on level floors or in flat landscapes. There is no well shaft drilled into the ground for these wells. Assume the water level has risen as a result of the rain.

Q5: What is causing the water to move?

A5: In Skyrim, there isn’t any water. It’s a computer game, so what you’re seeing is just a visual depiction of water, an abstract reduction of reality, and since Skyrim doesn’t handle fluid simulations, that imitation of water is restricted in complexity. For some, static and unchanging wave textures are better representations of water; for others, flowing wave patterns are better representations of water. This is your game, and you have complete control over your mod list and the structure of your Skyrim world… You wouldn’t be able to tell it was water if it wasn’t moving.
