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

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 3

Another month, another progress post. The good news is that it's going forward – slowly but that's nothing new Most of the third branch (so the one of two for Shydra) is finished.

It turns out that for this part of the story creating the animations took the most of my time, in part because I never worked on them before and had to get familiar with everything, but mostly because they are just a lot work. And the time spend on them increases exponentially the more detailed you try to make them. I have to say it was fun building them, but considering how much time they needed which I could not use to continue the story is a bit disheartening in regards to the timeframe for the next chapters.

Unfortunately there isn't really an alternative. Most animations which I need for the scenes just don't exist yet or are not freely usable. Especially intros, outros and transitions are hardly available for any sex animation – which is not surprising as they are a lot work for a few seconds show – but really belong into a proper scene. Obviously my favorite solution would be an animator who creates them for this mod, like DarkAngel did for the Tursam scene.

I will most likely use custom animations for the fourth branch too, which means even through it doesn't takes that much time to finish it in the Creation Kit (Story, Scripting, Dialog, etc) it will still be quite a while until it is ready for release due to the animations.

Therefore my current plan is to release an update with the third branch as new content later this month. Afterwards I'll work on an update with the second bonus scene (no custom animations there) and then on the last branch of the chapter. Once that is done the work on chapter two begins. But that's still a bit way ahead.

So in conclusion: Check back later this month and also apply as an animator or voice actor

  7. Oh man...I wish I could do more than just voice acting to help you with this :(
    But before I figure out how to create animations there are already three sequels and a prequel for this mod for The Elder Scrolls 8 released.

  9. Look at http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/44596 - Someone has fixed the broken facial animations. I know you don't want to add requirements to your mod but if you could implement expressions for those who will install this fix while the dead face can remain for those who don't have the mod, that would be a wonderful enhancement.

    1. Well I am staying with 1.8 for now, so I don't actually have this problem (and that beth still didn't fixed it yet is pretty fucked up if you ask me). I suppose the one expression which is really missing is the one which opens the mouth.
      The author of the mods allows reusing his scripts, but unfortunatly it needs SKSE which I do not want to add as a requirement. I'm not quite sure if I can implement it the way you suggest (so that it works when installed and is ignored when SKSE is missing). I'll look into it. But I don't really want to add another Skyrim installation (1.9) for testing and my debugger is being lazy :) Soo... maybe... when there is time and it works out.

      Delete
    2. I think if you stick with what works with 1.8 then they will work with this MOD in place for people with 1.9 (ie: most of us).

      I was thinking of the scene with the DB on her knees before Tursam, MFG Expression 16 100 to open the mouth (that wasn't broken in 1.9) but add MFG Phoneme 0 100 to open it a little wider making alignment better (using 1 100 is too wide) but should also be looking up (MFG Modifier 11 100) and since she's supposed to be angry use MFG Modifer's 2,3,4 and 5 to help that angry look by bringing the brows down and together.

      Delete
    3. Ah. Well Skyrim doesn't supports changing phoneme facial expression by script afaik, only by console (or at least I never saw the command). The mod you linked adds support for doing so by script, but by using SKSE. I might add optional support for it, as again the author allowed reusing his mod so I wouldn't need to add an additional dependency - it would just look a bit nicer when SKSE is present. I'll see if and how this works out, tho I don't know if it will be in the next release already.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, well it does add to the work but it does also add to the immersion. I would hazard to guess that nearly everyone using your mod has SKSE already but that "nearly" doesn't mean everyone so I can understand your desire to keep it as clean as possible.

      Delete
  10. An other suggestion: I know you don't want to use the sexlab framework, but maybe you could use its datapack instead? The animations are the same, but nobody uses sexis anymore.
    Btw an other question; If I translate your mod, ca I post it on loverslab? (I'll only post the esp, and put a link back to your blog).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sexis is used for only one scene. When I have some time I plan to replace them with some of Arroks animations, allowing me to remove the dependency. No need to add a new one instead. If there is some mod or framework which really offers advantages to Dark Investigations or saves me a lot time for something, I will make him a requirement, but this is not the case for SexLab at this point.

      Yes, if you post only the esp you can post it on loverslab. Which language do you want to translate it to? It's going to be a lot work :)

      Delete
    2. Thanks, I'll try to translate it in french, it may take some time ^^
      There are still advantages for the sexlab framework, it can track sexual stats for the player, it also has his own nude suits during sex (whereas your mod replace the male body, which can conflict with many mods/player's taste).
