Better Soul Trap

The Vanilla Soul Trap spell can be summarized like this :
- Costs a hand (meaning you can't dual-cast this fireball you'd like to attack with)
- Costs a huge magicka amount (at low level, almost your whole magicka bar)
- Makes the target hostile
- Must be cast at close range

This means, basically, that it will initiate a fight with a guy who has taken little to no damage and is able to hit you immediately while you're regenerating that magicka bar you just emptied. Oh, and since you're wearing cloth (you're a mage after all), you take lots of damage :(. Weirdly, weapon users have an easier time than mages when it comes to leveling enchanting.

Well, this is over ! This simple mod ("simple" means it took less than 5 minutes to make :P) allows you to cast Soul Trap from a distance, without aggroing, and for a mere 15 magicka without perks !

Obviously, this has a cost. You can no longer use the Soul Trap glitch to level your Conjuration skill. But hey, who uses glitches to level anyway? ;)

----------------------- COMPATIBILITY -----------------------
This mod should be INCOMPATIBLE with any mods that alter the Soul Trap spell, unless it is loaded last. Otherwise, it should be loaded last (or first, depending on what you prefer).
This mod should be COMPATIBLE with mods that alter the Soul Trap SCRIPT, but not the spell, such as : (but to be honest, I haven't tested, it's only an assumption, I'll be glad to hear any feedback)
This mod should be COMPATIBLE with any mod that doesn't alter the Soul Trap spell. It's the only thing my mod changes in the game. But once again, one can't test the compatibility of every mod on the Workshop ;).

Well it's the best I could ask for I suppose. Though I wish there was a way to not have to use it in the first place, without gimping a weapon enchant. Still, thanks for doing something, so I'll give it a try.
