  2. Once the Creation Kit is launched, select ‘File > Data…’ and in the window that comes up, tick Skyrim.esm and Spell Perk Restrictions – Vanilla.esp.
  3. Select Spell Perk Restrictions – Vanilla.esp and hit Set as Active File. Then click OK.
  4. The Creation Kit will now load up your plugin. This may take a while. Click ‘Yes to All’ for any error window that comes up.
  5. When it’s done, close the Warning window (if there is one) and select ‘File > Save’, then close the Creation Kit.
  6. (Optional) Check your plugin in xEdit for the correct form version (44).

After re-saving the plugin, there will be facegen files in your Overwrite folder that the CK generated. Simply move them inside the Spell Perk Restrictions mod folder.

Included mods and changes

Originally all this mods were listed in the guide seperately, but then I discovered Weight Overhaul had an error and those three mods already required three patches. So I rather merged them all together – made possible by the mod authors who gave open permissions <3 – and thus cut back on the number of patches. More mods and personal edits may be added in the future.
