Playable Flute, Lute and Drum - Play and Bash
This item has been added to your Favorites.
Minor bug fixes: busy issue of sneak singing, prolonged silence of sneak play, mutual exclusion adjustment.
* IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE CREATING INSTRUMENTS, see Base IDs in following recipe.
* IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE PLAYING INSTRUMENTS YOU CREATED BEFORE, please try dropping and picking instruments, or re-creating instruments. Skyrim sometimes remember older scripts.
* If you stole \'Blank Pocketbook\', the prompt will not appear. Drop to the ground once, and try again.
Bard title in Skyrim Vanilla is kind of crap for player life in game. This mod adds playable Flute&Lute&Drum and singing ability. Audience applaud, reward, and your skill will advance(speechcraft). Instruments have buff&debuff effect in sneak stance for combat. Your followers and companions become your band members.
You can bash someone as bard warrior, or live a professional bard life.
Base IDs are listed in braces where xx is this mod\'s load order in your environment.
* one large antler, one wooden bowl, and one void salt
You cannot swing them, you will be polite a little than Battle Instruments.
Following items are for singing. Vocalization is still in experimental stage.
(all of them are available but Bard\'s College has them most)
* Or, bring one paper roll to forge. It creates 3 Blank Pocketbooks.
* Then open your Blank Pocketbook. Prompt will appear.
- Songbooks of Custom Songs - Enigmatic Songbook(xx017C95 - xx017C9E)
Noble chest is wide and low, mesh-patterned box,
They have volume number(see section 3 \'Preparing Custom Songs\').
As you equip instruments, performance starts in few seconds, except in following situations:
- You have shields or torches in your left hand
1. Stand still (or sneak) with your hands empty, leaving combat stance.
2. Just equip (or re-equip) your instrument, preferably with hotkeys.
3. Wait until you get back to standing(or sneaking) stance.
The point is, always sheath your weapon and hands down before performance.
Draw your weapon or instruments just for bashing someone.
If you cancel performance, you can move around however music will be going on.
1. Open your songbook that you are going to sing.
2. Wait few seconds. Message appears in upper-left corner of your screen.
3. Close your inventory. The song will start.
Please do not forget --- common songs except \'Dragonborn Comes\' need playable lute.
To sing or play your custom music assets, convert your mp3 or wav files into .xwm format(I tested this with MultiXwm(http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=3159)) and place them according to following convention.
i) In Windows or whatever, rename your music file as one of:
ii) Place your music file under the folder:
which has the same volume number that you gave to your file.
Your music will play as in the same manner as common songbooks, or a message tells you Dovahkiin cannot understand what was written in the book(in case the file was not recognized).
WARNING: too long music, corrupted files, files in wrong formats, all these files cause hangup or Crash To Desktop. It\'s safe keeping your file size in around 1.4MB in xwm format. Wav also works (as BardVoiceCustom01.wav etc), but its behavior is completely hidden in Skyrim blackbox. Please watch it by yourself.
Your teammates might react as your band member if the song is custom one, and if they didn\'t have torches, and they didn\'t sit, and they didn\'t unsheath their weapons, and they didn\'t do this and that.
No instruments needed for them, however, if you want them to play specific instrument part, just hand over the instrument to each member.
Anyway they do not always necessarily react. Do not depend too much on them.
If Dovahkiin\'s current equipped weapon is one of playable instruments, that will be your part.
earns money from audiences, gets applause, and advances you to level up.
Flute and lute offers tavern mood, drum offers Sovngarde mood.
* Sneak stance performance (for speechcraft 60+):
CAUTION: offensive effect applies to any listeners except your teammate, i.e. your followers and quest companions. Careless \'offensive\' performance causes city massacre.
Following effects appear on ENEMIES WHO DO NOT DETECT PLAYER,
effect is canceled. Sneak, hide in the shadow, and poison enemies\' ears.
+ Flute: Calm(like) to enemies, Restore Health and Stamina to teammates.
There are 2 version of effect --- weaker effect for speech level 60+,
Former continues 120sec while the latter have 180sec in real.
Battle Flute - victim will eventually be paralyzed, but never gets hostile.
Battle Lute - victim will get shock damage (it\'s an electric guitar.)
Battle Drum - victim will be absorbed health a bit.
Bashing with battle instruments is a minor crime.
Be cautious when you sing political songs near regular soldiers.

I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out how this mod works. But, now I use it all of the time. Having the ability to play instruments was something that the game really needed. I mean, come on! I went through all of that stuff with the Bard\'s College, you know. :) Anyway, nice mod.
Can some one help me install custom songs? I did what the description said but its not working
@mike You need to get a vanilla instrument and craft at a forge to make it usable.
Does this mod work on the vanilla instruments lying around as loot or do you have to craft one to play it ?
this would be really cool if it were less complicated to get and less glitchy AND if i could understand what the mod developer says. No offense.
Will there be an update to add moving player lips? or should someone make another mod to patch that in?
I tryed al the codes i could but couldnt get a lute and i dont wanna get all the stuf x,x
