Hardcore Restore Potions

Purpose: Keeping 10 or so restore health potions on you=God mode. This mod eliminates that. Now restore potions are something you might drink right before charging into battle; they are not useful for freezing time and chugging as that warhammer lowers on your skull. On the other hand, these potions stack, and drinking many of these modified potions before battle could give you 25 seconds of invincibility. That would be quite expensive though.

This mod...

Changes instant restore magicka/health/stamina potions to heal the same amount but over 25 seconds.
Potion of ultimate ___ restores 12 points for 25 seconds for a total of 300 points.

Replaces ingredient effects restore ___ with regenerate ___.
Replaces with fortify ___ if regenerate was a second effect.
Changes "Restore ___ Potion Recipe" to "Regenerate ___ Potion Recipe"

Changes weights (weaker potions are lighter).

Preserves original cost values.

version 1.1) fixed the recipes

note: the reason I changed the ingredient effects was because I could not get created restore potions to heal over time. Changing the effects to "regenerate" was the next best thing. These modified potions are in essence faster regeneration potions.

Like what I did with the potion weights? Check out "Revised Potion Weights" by JBSchroeds if you want all of the potions to follow the same weight scheme. Place his mod higher than mine in the load order to give this mod priority.

Same here. You don't really get that much out of just drinking potions if you are playing on a high difficulty; the most you'll really get out of it is the possibility of surviving the shield bash and dying from the actual attack :P

I am using this mod for quite a time already and like it. Yet, I have a complain. Stamina potions are better to stay what they were by default or their behaviour should be changed somehow. Explanation. Let's say some power strike uses 50 stamina points. However, the game will allow you to perform it even with lesser amount of stamina, depleting it to zero as a result and freezing its regeneration for a moment, to balance things out. But with this mod potions, you are able to shield bash, power strike and whatnot constantly, as they give you stamina every single moment regardless of anything and even 1 point is enough to perform anything stamina consuming. Try it, feels like cheating. Shiled bash, powerstrike, bash, strike, bash, strike, rince and repeat until it's dead. Next target.
I like how health and magicka potions of this mod work, but stamina ones ruin the balance completely. I wish something can be changed.

(Just thought I'd follow up on this. Apparently it wasn't working for me because I had made potions before installing this mod. Any I made since installing it function as desired. Apologies for my misconception, and kudos on a great and necessary mod.)

Nope. This works with the game-given restore potions, but not for what I need it to do. With Dragonborn, it's possible for me to mix Wheat and a Blue Mountain Flower together to make a potion that Fortifies Health and Restores 239 points of Health. For whatever reason, this mod lets me restore all 239 points in "0 seconds."

My search for a mod which seamlessly prevents potion spam--unfortunately--continues.

Figured it out. Unsubscribe and delete from your data folder. Then resubscribe. The patch must have over written it. I also put it near the top for load order. Whew that scared me
