This plugin will fix soul gems such that they never lose their charge once filled with the correct soul, and changes the soul trap spells and enchantments so you never underfill a soul gem.

After you fully fill a soul gem so that the soul and the size of the gem match (e.g. in your inventory it says something like "Lesser Soul Gem (Lesser)" or "Greater Soul Gem (Greater) but not "Common Soul Gem (Petty)"), that soul gem will not lose its charge if you drop it on the ground or place it in a container, which will happen without this mod.

The other thing it does is ensure you only fill gems fully in the first place. In vanilla, if you soul trap a creature with a lesser soul but the only empty gem you have is a greater gem, that lesser soul will be put in that greater gem (wasting it, some would say). With this mod you will let the soul escape rather than waste the gem. You can still fill Azura's Star with any size soul if you have it, though. Also this in effect fixes black soul gems and the Black Star so that they only hold the black souls of humans and elves, which is what they're supposed to do according to in-game lore.

Hello. Anybody knows of a workshop-version of this mod that works with vanilla Skyrim?
Or a mod that offers the same feature(s)?
Thanks in advance!

Sorry Guys....
Does it exist a mod that can make possible to fill a gem like lesser with 2 petty soul?
....and so....fill a common soul gem with 2 lesser soul or 4 petty soul?
In essence, sum more soul in a gem?

This mod doesn't actually do much when you are trapping black souls with the Black Star. For white souls, when you go to trap something, it will remove from your inventory all the larger-size soul gems (including black gems) so that they don't get underfilled. But, it will not remove Azura's Star or the Black Star in any case, and if you do trap a soul into either of them, it's being trapped in the same fashion that it ordinarily would.

So what that means, is that you've got some other mod that is screwing with the soul size of NPC characters. ASG doesn't touch any of that stuff.

I've encountered a glitch. The black star only fills with black souls, but they are petty, not grand, regardless of who is killed. Tested with soul trap spell, player enchanted weapons, and the mace of molag bal.

Does it fix stacking of filled gems?

I've updated the description to point out that this version requires Dawnguard. However, the plugin hosted here is out of date as well, and you shouldn't use it. Get the plugin from SkyrimNexus instead. I'm only keeping this here because I don't want to screw over people who are still subscribed for some reason - I'm not maintaining the file here anymore though.

Hm, clean skyrim + this addon (without addons without DLC) = does not work :o(
