I found this question:

Why have I become invisible?

None of the answers are working for me. That question is over two years old and has no selected answers, so I am considering it a dead question and am asking a new one. Plus, this may be a different issue because most people appear to encounter this issue after being zapped by Breylin in Winterhold, but this one occurred at random while being attacked by a draugr deathlord in a Falskaar dungeon.

My character is invisible. I can only see the translucent, red glow of my Daedric armor. When not wearing a helmet and standing before misty/hazy effects such as a waterfall, I can see a ghost-like image of my character. I've tried the following:

  • sexchange twice in console. Character becomes visible, but goes back to invisible as soon as I close console.
  • showracemenu. Character becomes visible until I exit the race selection screen.
  • player.setalpha 100. Does nothing.
  • player.addspell 00030fbe. player.removespell 00030fbe. Does nothing.
  • player.setnpcweight 0. Chartacter becomes visible, but invisible again after I close console.
  • Become Ethereal shout. Player becomes visible, but then goes back to invisible.
  • Casting other spells with character effects like heal. Player becomes visible, but then goes back to invisible.
  • Becoming ethereal and entering a building.
  • Becoming ethereal and waiting.
  • Becoming ethereal and fast traveling. This one almost works. I appear to become visible permanently, but when I press F1 or F2 to load a new set of armor using SkyUI's hotkeys, I go back to being invisible again. I'll also note that you have to fast travel far away, not to your current location.
  • Turning into werewolf. Become visible for a few seconds, then back to invisible.
  • Sleeping in a bed.
  • Waiting for 24 hours.
  • Casting Shadowcloak of Nocturnal. This spell is supposed to make you invisible for 120 seconds. Instead, I become visible for 120 seconds before going back to invisible. This one gave me the theory that there must be some visibility flag erroneously set to false. Shadowcloak then toggles that visibility rather than setting the flag to false, so I become visible until it is toggled again.
  • Entering FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU in console. Did nothing.
  • I've come too far to load my last old save that still exists (I pretty much only quick save and all my old autosaves have since been overwritten).

I have been to page 3 of Google over this, so that tells you something. Is there anything I do to fix this?

I think I happened upon a fix that supports my theory about the IsVisible attribute. Using another suggestion I found about becoming ethereal and fast traveling, I used Shadowcloak of Nocturnal and fast traveled. I was always able to tell when my attempts fail after I attempt to switch armor which would always result in me becoming invisible again. After fast traveling with this spell, I am now able to switch armor and remain visible. I think this combination of invisibility and fast travel toggled that boolean flag back to its proper value. Let's hope this stays.


Well, it's not completely back to normal, but I am not complaining. My character still appears to be slightly phased. This pic shows that you can still see through the body. At least I can see my character now. What a strange bug.

  • Maybe now that you're halfway there, maybe try some of your previous fixes?

My solution was to just back up to a previous save when the bug occurred. It's happened once to me and once to a follower and both times I just backed up a couple of minutes and was fine.


This fix is for PC version!

The problem is most likely caused by a mod that adds a spell effect on you and not clearing the effects after it's done (mods that alter potions or spells for example) which the console commands in the question cannot fix.

The following example fixes vanilla Skyrims Magic effects. Make a text file on the root of the Skyrim folder, it's the same folder where the TESV.exe is (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim), call it something like vanilla.txt and include the following in the file:

Save the file, open the console in Skyrim and write bat vanilla. It removes the spell effects added by any potion/spell/mod that alters the vanilla effects and should restore the character to normal. Note that you need to re-equip your equipments to re-apply the enchant effects.

I found this from Skyrim Nexus forums on the following thread and it contains other fixes for the DLC's and some mods that add new effects:

Batch files have been made by LebitelSofta that will remove all vanilla Skyrim, Dawnguard, Dragonborn, WetnCold[sic] and Skyrim Immersive Creatures visual and shader effects from the player


You need account to download the files for the other fixes, I included the vanilla file as an example. But if you can figure out the spell that's causing the problem you can remove it manually yourself with the player.sms - this is however a fast way to fix any spell that's causing trouble.

Also note that if you download the files, you have to manually edit the dlc and mod txt files:

Edit the Dawnguard, Dragonborn, or WC or SIC batch files (if necessary) so that every shader or effect ID matches your load order.


The hair in your screenshots looks like the Apachee hair mod, so I'm going to assume you have other mods as well. Reinstall all mods related to character appearance, behavior, or magic. If that doesn't work, make a new gamesave just to make sure your current one hasn't been corrupted.

  • The OP already found a solution (or a compromise in this case) to their problem (they self answered). Although adding additional answers is fine, this post is nearing 3 years old, and probably wouldn't benefit any further from your answer. Your answer also makes assumptions that mods are present, which are typically not good answers.

open up console commands, by pressing '' ` ''

click on your character and type in console commands



I had this same problem and I just fixed it without going back to the spot that it happened, and losing my progress. All I did was use the shout “become ethereal”. I used it just for fun to see what it did and my character just popped up again.


Use the ethereal shout. It corrected mine. 487 mods 254 .esps


Just hit the guards and let you be killed. It worked for me


It's the goddamn Wet and Cold mod.


Solution 4 has an option for wet and cold effects as well.

That's what I figured out after 6 hours of futzing around with this.
