s7o's Cache Sacks II

s7o's Cache Sacks II 2.16

Player-owned Cache Sacks that can be placed
whereever they're needed, and taken with you
when they're empty -
The non-cheating way to handle overweight loot.

Any 3 other of my mods installed unlock
Cache Sack Crafting to let you create your
own Cache Sacks at tanning racks.


To place a Cache Sack, simply drop an empty sack to make it 'unfold' at your feet.
It's inventory will automatically open.

To pick up a placed sack, remove all items from it and close it. The empty sack will
be returned to your inventory's misc-section for reuse.

Cache Sacks must be used one at a time: Whenever you have two or more empty
ones with you, your inventory will always show one single sack and the rest in a
stack for your dropping convenience.

If you drop more than one sacks at a time, only one will be placed, the rest will be
returned to your inventory. Should you want to get rid of your sacks, put them into
any container (including other Cache Sacks of course).

With at least one Cacke Sack placed, map markers for your most recent up to 30
sacks will be available: To toggle them on and off, set the "Cache Sack" entry in
your quet log's misc-section active or inactive as needed,

CACHE SACK CRAFTING will be unlocked with any 3 other of my mods loaded
(with less than 3, they unlock additional sacks). After this, any desired amount of
sacks can be crafted at any tanning rack (2 linen wraps + 1 leather strips).

If any items from your sacks' inventories should ever get lost - which has never
occured, nor would i see why it should, but you never know :-) -
Talk to Mai'iq the Liar.


You'll find your first free Cache Sack on a barrel right outside the cave where
you exited Helgen's keep on gamestart (also see images).

14 more are distributed to the three Kahjit caravans at random the first time the
mod loads and can be bought from their vendors.

@ willy a jeep 3: %... so, the only way to interfere _at_all_ would be another mod that removes and re-adds the empty sacks themselves to your inv (thereby triggering their scripts), but _even_then_, all they'd do is track empty sack count and make sure you'll always have one single "drop" sack, which is not that heavy a script, your machine would need to be pretty much at its limits _already_ at that point for that to even be noticeable (and to that, even in this case, this would likely occur then for _any_ player inv transaction)

so, honestly not trying to just shake that off or something, but i can't see even in theory how CS could cause this. ---if you're very bored :-), did you try with the same mod list on an unmodded game (meaning _never_ been saved with any mod in it), if the issue still occurs?

(on a side note, i also don't really think it's an interference with skyUI, there's so many people using that i'm pretty sure i'd have heard about that before)
s7o  [author] Feb 9 @ 4:52pm 
@ willy a jeep 2: %...the rolled up sacks in your inv now, they totally don't care for crafting.
so, if they'd interfere with, like, an inventory sorter, they'd do so (= you'd get that lag) _whenever_ you add or remove _anything_ from your inv, not just when a crafted item is added (an issue i know rather well, as my "Smack The Smith" mod had one like that in earlier versions)

(to that, to cause this, you'd either need to manually (console) stop and restart the carrier quest, or, on the same save game, remove CS, start without it and save, and then "reinstall" CS (and even for these cases, the mod will try to fix itself), so that's not too likely. ...%

@ willy a jeep 1: well, would sound like, if not :-)

it's like this: for empty sacks, there's exactly two occasions when they do _anything_, that's when one is added or removed from player's inventory. at any other point (like crafting), they don't run any functions, don't track your inventory or anything, they just do plain nothing (and even then, the only thing they do to pc's inv is count n# of sacks dropped at a time and return surplus sacks to inventory (so only 1 box at a time will be placed)

(and the actual (placed) sacks also run a script when items are added/removed to them, but they never touch player or inv, and they're entirely separate objects from the rolled up sacks, so no way for them to cause your issue) ...%

Can't seem to find anything in my logs, though I'm no expert on browsing debug output. Everything I'm seeing is the regular file load, the associated output of other mods looking for potentially associated files, then only an error I'm expecting to appear from a separate mod for the remainder of gametime until exiting. Nothing from your mods (other than them looking for your other mods I don't have), nothing from any inventory-editing mods.

The problem only occurs after I've used one of the cache sacks. Beforehand, when they're just an item in the inventory, no problems. But placing one down, the crafting menus drop FPS, and after picking it back up, continued FPS drop in crafting menus.

If there's anything more specific I should be looking for in the logs, I'd be happy to know. But it all seems rather innocuous. Meanwhile, I'll go about pulling each mod one-by-one until I stop getting the problem.

Oh, don't misunderstand, I don't think it's this mod. I've run it smoothly in the past, no problems like the one I'm encountering now. I get it has to be something on my end - something in my load order being rearranged or an update to some other mod I've had - and now they've had a conflict.

I only wanted to post a message here about it for other people to see, and in the off chance it could be replicated, bring it to light. I always find it tedious to look through modpage after modpage when encountering a problem like this, but I discovered an in-game fix myself, and didn't want other people to have a long search for help or atleast an answer for what *might* work.

On topic about my load order, I only have an old version of SkyUI for inventory sorting. I already removed your mod, but I can go ahead and reinstall and see what I get in the log. Will report back with what I see!

@willy a jeep 2: (%), your issue most definitely has another cause. if dropping a sack helps, i'd start checking your inventory sorters and stuff like that. and, like i said, enable logging and check your script log. whatever's causing your issue has a high chance of being in there in plain text......
(and speaking of plain text, script sources are in the mod, so you can always check for yourself instead of just believing or not what i say)
s7o  [author] Jan 29 @ 9:56pm 
@ willy a jeep 1: i can just repeat what i said, it's virtually impossible this is caused by this mod. i just re-checked the scripts to make really sure: the _only_ occasions when they do _anything_ is when you either add or remove an empty sack (and nothing else) to your own inventory. when they're in your inventory, they're dead as a rock, it's not possible for them to do anything at that point. and even if the scripts bugged out real bad, any issues occuring in the process would _not_ go away, but persist (or even get worse) when you dropped the sack (and the only issue you _could_ get in a worst case scenario from how the scripts work is a slight lag when (or rather _whenever_) you pick up or drop items, and never anything crafting related)
Willy A. Jeep Jan 29 @ 8:58am 
Right, I understand. Just wanted to point out that I was encountering that problem. In-game, the only thing that would fix it was dropping the cache sack I had. It hadn't happened before, even with the same mod set-up, but it did now.

Mainly wanted to just give a heads-up to anybody who might encounter the same thing, so if they come here, they wouldn't have to go looking through their entire load order.
