Sprinting while wearing armor builds experience for Light and Heavy Armor.

Increasing Heavy Armor allows players to sprint for longer.

Increasing Light Armor results in being able to move faster overall.

Just about everything is customizable too!


Armored Sprint makes permanent changes to the player character's actor values.

Please be sure to disable these changes using the Armored Sprint lesser power or the Mod Configuration Menu before removing the mod.


Skyrim Nexus: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/38201


This mod was tested on Skyrim v1. and cleaned with TES5Edit v3.0.30.

It does not make any changes to the base game and is entirely script-driven.

It also fully supports SkyUI's Mod Configuration Menu but does not require it or SKSE.

=Known Issues=

-Player-enchanted armor must be re-equipped after first loading the mod.
--There is a known issue with Skyrim that prevents custom enchantments from being applied when items are equipped through script.

=Change List=

-Implemented MCM support

-Expanded customization options

-Fixed an issue where Armored Sprint abilities would disappear from saved games

Are you kidding? You did far more work than I did! Thank you for checking all of that out, and I'm sorry you ran into the issue in the first place!

I ran it through BOSS again, and everything seems to be working now. Perhaps there was conflict with a different mod that has since been fixed. It's been quite a while, so I wouldn't be surprised if others have gone through some updates, even just to tidy them up.

Thank you for taking the time to get back to me~.

Yeah, I'm always wearing light armour, boots and bracers/gauntlets otherwise. I'll run the mods through BOSS again just in case, then if that doesn't work I'll disable all other armour and clothing related mods. I'll also start from a fresh save each time, and I'll report back.

Thanks for the feedback! I've got another question for you:

With the Helmetless Warrior and Khajiit Ears mods, I'm assuming you were wearing light armor aside from those helmets and still running into the issue right?
Tycho Mar 17 @ 10:30pm 
The only other armour related mods I have are Helmetless Warrior, which allows you to craft an invisible version of each helmet, and Khajiit Ears with Helmets, which lets Khajiit ears poke out from inside helmets. Maybe Bandolier - Bags and Pouches too. Otherwise everything else seems to leave armour alone.

I've tried it with several types of armour - I've worn Dragonscale armour, and I've tried it on a brand new save, so I would have also tried at least Leather armour too. I haven't tried it on any enchanted pieces, or unique armour.

I do have a mod that adds duplicates of every armour piece with modified stats, but that shouldn't touch the original armour pieces (i.e. vanilla pieces). I've also had these two mods working together, and for a time this one worked fine. I haven't played Skyrim in quite a while, so I will go back through my mods list and see if anything seems to be the problem, but to the best of my knowledge this was one of the last ones I'd installed.

I know I am horribly late in responding but what type of light armor are you wearing, and are you using any mods that alter the existing armor in the game?

Unfortunately, this mod is not working for me. It installs and runs just fine, and I have the Power to configure it, but no amount of sprinting is increasing my Light Armour skill. I've tried disabling it, I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it onto a clean save, and none of these solutions have worked. I've also tried having it at the beginning and end of the load order, with no luck.

v1.1 is out, everyone! Thank you for being patient!

This build should fix any issues people were having with the new abilities dropping. It also adds support for SkyUI's Mod Configuration Menu and a slew of new customization options.

You can also grab it on the Nexus using the link in the description.
