Less Lore

Bug reports to: UESP Wiki: Less Lore.



Less Lore reduces the amount of lore seen in the game in two ways:

-  It add "not local nolore" tests for a number of generic responses. These changes will likely not be visible in the stock game, but will should remove lore from nolored characters - particularly companions and Morrowind Comes Alive NPCs.

-  It removes generic responses that the user is likely to already know, or which is no longer relevant since the quest has been completed. E.g., once the user has had dealings with Big Helende, the user will no longer see stock responses on where to find her.

-  This mod is an expanded version of ManaUser's NoLore mod.


Less Lore Rules

NoLore tests were added if

-  If the information is generic, and would not be expected to be given out by a nolored NPC.

Quest lore was removed if

-  The information was expected to be known by the player – generally because the associated quest had been completed.

-  The response was generic, and did not add to the atmosphere of the game.

-  In general, quest lore was not removed for quest givers.




-  Standard mod installation.

-  Note that this esp does not place any object references.

-  This mod was built on top of both ThePal's and Kivan's patches. It is not known if those patches are required for using this patch (quite possibly not, since those are mostly text patches), however both of these patches are quite useful, and it is suggested that the user get them.
