Item Sorting with Weightless Items

This mod relabels or renames arrows, potions, foods, clutter items, quest items, crafting items and books to be easier to find and use. This mod does not change the UI look in anyway. If you like to use the same UI setup I use check under Recommendations.

For Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn sorting please check under my workshop files.


What this mod changes

All Potions, Soul Gems, Crafting Materials, Ingredients, Foods, Quest Clutter Items, Books and Scrolls have had their weight made to 0.

They have been sorted as per follows;

Potions and poisons have been renamed to be grouped together so that they're easier to find. Player made potions should also match their loot/bought versions. Also note that special potions/beverages still retain their original name. Here's an example of their sorting:

Esbern's Potion
Poison of Weakness to Fire III
Poison of Damage Health V
Potion of Fortify Sneak II
Potion of Invisibility III
Potion of Restore Health
Potion of Restore Health IV
Potion of Resist Frost [Ice Wraith Essence]
Potion of Resist Shock IV

All Soul gems have been renamed as follows:

Soul Gem Azura: Azura's Star
Soul Gem Azura: The Black Star
Soul Gem I: Petty
Soul Gem II: Lesser
Soul Gem III: Common
Soul Gem IV: Greater
Soul Gem V: Grand
Soul Gem VI: Black

Smithing items have been labeled as follows:

Ore: "Type"
Ingot: "Type"
Gem: "Type"
Hide: "Type" (Includes pelts, leather and straps plus other hides such as Dragon Scales)
Smelt: "Type" (For the Dwemer items that are smeltable)
Bone: "Type" (Dragon Bones fall into this catergory as do other animal parts)

All Miscellaneous Quest items now use the "Quest:" Label. This will also make them easier to spot. Please note that quest weapons and apparel are not included so they have no change to their name. Also note that some radial miscellaneous quest items are done at random and may not have a quest label (such as the bard instrument quests which use the label "Instruments:"). Added a Bone Label to cover other animal parts. Unique items will instead use a "Unique:" label. All other clutter items will just use the "Misc:" label. Here's an example of their sorting:

Bone: Mammoth Tusk
Instrument: Pantea's Flute
Misc: Charcoal
Misc: Dwemer Pan
Misc: Fork
Misc: Plate
Quest: Curious SIlver Mold
Quest: Diamond Claw
Quest: Fragment of Wuuthrad
Unique: Moth in a Jar
Unique: The Dancer's Flute

Books for the large part have kept their names. Books and Notes that had title mistakes have been corrected or changed to match either their author or in the case of a series volume, numbering to be grouped together. Skill books have been renamed to be easier to find. Spell Tomes have been renamed to indicate what school and level of magic they require. These changes do not affect the actual spells so they should have no problems working with spell mods. Recipes for both alchemy and the forge have been renamed to what they produce for easier sorting and to match the changes in this mod. Lastly I've added the '[Quest]' label at the end of books or notes that are essential or easy to miss quest starters. There might be some more that I missed, but I think I've covered the main ones. Here's an example for how they appear:

Atronach Forge Recipe: Fire Salt
Atronach Forge Recipe: Spell Tome [Con II]: Soul Trap
Bounty: Dragon Hunt
Letter from a friend [Quest]
Racial Phylogeny [Restoration]
Recipe: Poison of Damage Health v2
Recipe: Potion of Resist Frost v1
Spell Tome [Alt I]: Candlelight
Spell Tome [Dest II]: Lightning Rune
Spell Tome [Rest II]: Fast Healing
The Black Arrow, v2 [Archery]

All food has been relabeled to either have "Beverage:", "Cheese:", "Cooked:", "Fruit:", "Raw:", "Sweet:" or "Veg:". For example:

Beverage: Alto Wine
Cheese: Mammoth Bowl
Cooked: Salmon Steak
Fruit: Green Apple
Raw: Pheasant Breast
Sweet: Sweet Roll
Veg: Leek

Arrows have been relabeled to:

Arrow: "Type"

Mod Load Order

The ESP file can go anywhere.

However make sure that if you're using any other mods that also modify the stats for items that they go after in the load order so their changes work.

This mod works fine with SkyUI (including it's filter feature) and Categorized Favorites Menu. In fact I encourage you to use them. This mod should also work fine with any crafting mod or recipe added by a custom armor/weapon mod using vanilla crafting materials.

This mod will not work with any other mods that modify the same items such as other sorting or weight mods. However you can put a mod that changes an item (such as soul gems) below in the load order and it should take that mods changes but you will lose the name sorting.



If you wish to use the same UI setup I do you'll first need,

SkyUI located at the Nexus:
or also found on Steam:

I also recommend Categorized Favorites Menu located at the Nexus:

Finally if you wish to use the same font I do you need Fhaarkas Font Replacement located at the Nexus:


Known Issues

Hopefully there isn't any, however you might get a bit of an immersion breaker seeing some items labels outside of your inventory. There is no fix for this, so you'll have to decided if you can live with it.

If there are any mistakes in names or problems feel free to post and I'll fix it as soon as I can. However I will ignore any posts that are about not having the same UI or non-descriptive posts about the mod not working.



I made this myself. But thanks goes out to Headbomb and Valdacil.

You can find the main mod without weight changes here:



I don't mind what you do to the ESP file as long as you give me credit and link back to this page if it still exists. If you wish to translate my mod to your native language then you are welcome to as long as credit is given.

Not sure what the issue is, but after collecting food items from several contains the weight is returned to normal. I use only the optional files and yet done everything as i am supposed too and still the weight changes after collecting from several containers. I use no other mods that change the weight of the same items. I even tried to use the Main files and the same thing happens, even tried the way the load order was posted in the description. Please Help!

What is that inventory interface mod that you use?
Dasaige  [author] Aug 17, 2014 @ 6:29pm 
I think that it might be due to Item Recycling. Some things might me ordered but most likely the items it changes are not. No way to fix this unless you can can merge names via a patch. Not sure if Skyrim modders have done that feature yet. I've not played in a long while so have been out of the modding community.

If you're refering to the look, please note that's Sky UI. This mod should play nice with any other UI mod you like to use. Sadly though, any mod that makes changes to items don't work so well without either a patch or modify the other mod. It's up to you which you way you want to approach it.

If it's not many item changes, like say a soul gem mod for example, then I suggest running this mod first then any other mod(s) after in the load order. That way you'll keep most of the changes made by this mod regarding name changes. You'll lose out on the changes made by the other mod, for example soul gem names not being in order, but everything else will play nice.
