Summary:
This is a dark themed story driven quest mod for Skyrim. Like a real story, it is split into chapters which will be added one by one as the development moves on.


Warnings (read this before downloading):
Content Warning:
The story of this mod features dark adult themes like slavery, reluctance, blackmail, non-consentual sex, humilation and so on. Its not over the top (at least not yet) stuff, but if this direction is not your cup of tea, don't bother to download it.

Full Story Code Warnings:
Prolog: Non-Consentual, Masturbation
Chapter 1: Rape, Blackmail, Humil, D/s, Beastiality (optional)

Length Warning:
Every minute you play takes several hours to create in a story driven mod. Don't expect this to be another Dawnguard. Right now the very first chapter is finished. Its more like a preview (which also means - don't expect any orgies just yet)

Bug Warning:
There are probably quite a few bugs in the mod, which I hope to find and fix of course. However many bugs are just caused by Skyrim/The Creation Kit itself. When I tested the mod, sometimes some action in a scene just failed for no reason at all and it got stuck. Most times I could compelte the mod without any problems tho - however if you get stuck in a scene or dialog, just reloading and doing it again fixes it most of the times.


FAQ:
Will this mod be continued?
Possibly.


Requirements:
You need to have these mods installed:
Also:
  • You need to TURN ON SUBTITLES in your settings
  • You need to have a FEMALE PLAYER CHARACTER

Incompabilities:
Custom Skeletons are very likely not going to work / fit with the mods animation. For the XP32 Maximum Skeleton there is a compatibilty mode: Select the Dark Investigation Settings Spell in your Magic Menu and turn on this mode if you are using this skeleton. The vanilla will provide better results however.
- While I tried to avoid messing up any vanilla quests, due to bugs and pathing issues I can't promise that I succeeded in it. Therefore I do recommend to only keep this mod loaded while you play it - it won't do anything after you have the quest done anyway. No edits on your character or anything are done.

Conflicting / Incompatible mods:
  • "See you Sleep" Mod
  • Ultimate Follower Overhaul

Installation:
1. Download and install all required mods listed above
2. Download this mod and unzip it into your data directory
3. Run the GenerateFNISforUsers.exe which was provided with FNIS and is in your /data/tools directory
4. Play smile.png


Quest:
- The quest is started by the courier. Just go into any city after the mod is loaded.


Trouble Shooting:
My custom PC looks strange / manly / bulky / is missing custom features
Move dip.esp up in the load order

Anray keeps being a follower even when he should have left already / The door guard won't let me in telling me companions are not allowed / Anray won't follow me, telling me to get rid of compainions
Disable any custom follower mods, like UFO, and restart Dark Investigations.

In scenes my PC or other Actors just stand arround like ragdolls when they should be doing something
Makes sure you have FNIS installed properly and ran the user tool as described in the installation notes

A scene stops and doesn't moves on / Strange things happens / Actors are attacking each other
Load the last save outside the cell where the cell where the trouble began (in most cases the last autosave) and try again.

I still can't get it to work / something won't happen / someone won't speak to me / some script won't start
Make sure you use the most current Skyrim Version (>= 1.8).
Remove / disable all not required mods (you can backup your data folder before to easily restore everything back once your are finished). Make sure the /data/scripts folder is empty as scripts from other mods with the same name could break the mod. Then reinstall DI, use a clean save (or create a new character by starting a new game - in no case use a save which you created while DI was already active before) and try again. If that still does not work, feel free to post here in this thread asking for support

Voice Actors
I'm looking for volunteers to make this mod fully voiced. Please check out this post if you want to help.

Graphic Artists
You know your way arround creating or editing items / textures / effects in Skyrim and want to help out? There is always some item or outfit I need for this mod, so if you want to help me out go ahead and PM me. All I can offer is the timeless fame if a place in mod credits however tongue.png

Animation Artists
I have to use existing animations for the sex scenes in the mod. While many of them are very well done, most are not perfect for the actual scenes I have in mind. For example, some are "one-piece" animations which don't allow me to set the proper timing, others don't quite fit the action (like looking to consentual when it is not in the scene) and several do not exist at all (groping, undressing, etc). On the off chance that someone with skill in this area comes along and wants to provide an animation tailored for this story, please contact me.

Progress 1

"Hey, it has been 3 weeks since the last update, how many chapters did you finish already by now?".

Well not excactly any. But there IS some good progress with the animation for the first scene. Turns out that rotating hundrets of joints over thousends of frames to make some lines look like human-like creatures are having a rump takes more time than expected.

However by now most of the animation is finished. To be precise, all stages are (nearly) done, except the intro, which is the stage for everything before the actual sex begins. Still, because the intro, just like the outro, consist mostly of long unlooped movement this is quite a big chunk to work on. And for now I have enough of fighting with rebellious lines so it is back to the Creation Kit to work out the scripts, story and writing for the branch where the animation will fit in.

As you can see it is still a long way untill the next release, but as always it will be totally worth the wait

Also: I am currently looking for someone to create a mesh/textures of female prisoner pants pulled down around the knees, which would be used within the animation. The pants would act as restraint and would not have to support normal movement like walking, they just need to look nice while the knees are close together - and of course expose everything above

As little teaser, below is the video of the finished outro, rendered by 3ds Max (I am to lazy to create an in-game video). Of course, if you prefer to be surprised once you play the new content, don't watch the spoiler. But on the other hand, the untextured, bald objects don't give away too much of the atmosphere yet.


The final animation in game will support BPP - as well as textures

(yes the advertising is annoying, will see if I can find a better streaming site next time)
(video removed due to googles new prudery policy)
Fun fact: Years of training make it possible for rapists to always cum simultaneously when being watched by someone

  1. Thank you for the update but more thanks for keeping on working on this. You've got a great story going with a lot of creative ideas (the Lexicon as a recorder is just genius) which makes me eager (impatient really) to see what else you have in store.

  3. WoW man!
    I don't really mind how long you take to finish this because I know its gonna be hella worth it!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Looks amazing! Hope there's more of a 'forced/bondage' approach in the next chapter for the Dragonborn ;). I'm semi-okay at 3ds so I'll have a go at making the prisoner pants but I always hit a wall when it comes to getting them to display correctly in game once exported from 3ds (skinning most likely being the issue). Fingures crossed.

  10. We all know that a such awesome mod takes ages to be created, so take your time, again!
    I player 3 times Chap 0 & 1, it's still a pleasure to play it again, your text, the quest, everything is excellent, and even better than the classic quest.

    Like everybody here, I can't wait to see the Dragonborn in a slave peril!

  11. First of all, congratulations, played your mod like 3-4 times already, great work!
    I have a question about this 'other branch', however: on Tursam branch, we had a "good" choice (Putting yourself on danger to get the info) and a "bad" choice (using another person to reach the goal). Do you plan on giving us multiple ways also on Shydra branch?

    Again, thanks for one of the best adult mods ever (and certainly THE best adult-quest mod)!

    1. Just like Tursam's, Shydra's branch will have two subbranches - although they might not be released at the same time.
      In general, whenever there is an "evil" choice there will be an alternative branch which is not evil. It will not always be considered noble or heroic, but something a good-natured heroine could do without acting out of her role.

  12. Looks good! I especially like the little nudge at the end there.

  13. Will every sex scene that happens in this mod be available in the theatre? That would be a really cool feature

    ReplyDelete
  14. Woah, really impressive!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks for all your work, that's really one of the most impressive quest mod aviable ;)
    Do you think you'll use the newest sexlab framework in the future? It has enough animations to replace both sexis and asx (wich are obsolete now).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I try to avoid adding dependencies to other mods as much as possible, because it makes installing Dark Investigation more complicated for users. I also do not need any framework (script wise) for my mod - all current required mods (Sexis, ASX) are "only" there because of the animation files which I cannot just copy over without permission.
      Loverslab would also require SkyUI and SKSE as additional requirements, which are not needed for Dark Investigations.

      So the answer is: I would prefer not to use Sexlab and plan to remove the dependency at least for ASX when I find some time to create a replacement animation. Because several animators allow using their work in other mods (like Arrok) and some scenes in DI continue to have self-made animations I hope that in the end I will not have to rely on any framework mod.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for taking time to answer and good to know you'll remove the dependancy to asx (I've asked this because this mod is the only reason to install those mods now, and most people have installed sexlab anyway). I think the animation with danica is from blac945, maybe you can ask him if you can use it directly ;)

  16. Firstly thanks for GREAT mod. I can not wait next update, and check your blog every day :)I have one question, are you planning to support Schlongs of Skirim?

    1. I too would like to know that, hopefully its easy to implement his animations with SOS. Also an animated vagina is a WIP atm and it shouldn't be long till its out, having that too would make a dream reality!

  17. Hope everything is going well. Looking forward to the next update =).

  24. I think mod is dead. It has been over a month since the last update and there's nothing :( . Shame though it was such a good mod.

    1. You think wrong and if you would have read some of the posts in this blog you would have noticed that this is not a fast updating mod. It might even take some more months for the next release - that's how it is. This is not a fulltime job for me and adding content takes time.
