As with most DLCs, Dragonborn comes with some bugs that have not been resolved by Bethesda. Staying true to its spirit, Skyrim’s community has initiated a project that is a must-have for those that are about to enjoy this latest DLC. Unofficial Dragonborn Patch is a comprehensive bugfixing mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn, and its ultimate goal is to eventually fix every bug in Dragonborn not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package.
According to its description, the only requirement after installation is to move Unofficial Dragonborn Patch.esp to the top of the load order, below the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.esp, below the Unofficial Dawnguard Patch.esp, and below the Unofficial Hearthfire Patch.esp in Data Files in the Skyrim launcher (above any other ESP files) so that the UDBP loads as close to first as is practical.
This will allow other mods to override its changes so that it doesn’t cause problems with them. Use of BOSS is highly recommended since it will position the patch correctly along with your other mods as well.
There is currently only one version of this mod, and you can find its changelog below!
Unofficial Dragonborn Patch 1.0.0 Changelog:
Game Mechanics Fixes
•Dragonborn.esm wiped out the body part changes in Update.esm that shipped with official patch 1.8 that made dragon riding possible. These have been restored. (Bug #11916)
•Copied 3 cell entries that Dragonborn added location data for on the pathway to High Hrothgar that were overwritten by the USKP.
•The USKP made some corrections to the battle taunts which Dragonborn has changed. These changes have been merged.
•The USKP made corrections to two of the trainer topics that were missing properties in their scripts. Dragonborn added a new trainer to these records. The changes have been merged.
•The USKP added missing Throat of the World checks to WICastMagic04. Dragonborn added an exemption for Solstheim. These changes have been merged.
•Due to a botched INFO form assignment, Dragonborn makes it impossible to dismiss Onmund as a follower.
•Unknown changes have been made to DragonActorScript.psc. The USKP removed debug statements from this, which is causing the result to be overridden. Until CK scripts for Dragonborn are released, the compiled copy from Dragonborn will be supplied with the UDBP. (Bug #11915)
•Unknown changes have been made to DA04QuestScript.psc. The USKP and UDGP both alter this script to fix being unable to complete the harvesting objectives for Elven vampires. Until it can be determined otherwise, the changes in DB will be considered a higher priority and its compiled version of this script has been included.
