Description
Also available on Skyrim Nexus!
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/15182

Dubbed Katamari Dovahkiin by Reddit, this Alteration spell sends all actors in the area flying toward you at high speed. They will collect into a Katamari-like ball that will roll around as you run. It doesn't serve any useful purpose and is just for fun. Cast once to toggle it on, cast again to toggle it off. With practice you can slingshot the entire ball a considerable distance.

Location
========
The tome is lying in the main hall of Dragonreach. You can't miss it, it's on the carpet in front of you as soon as you step inside.

Tips
=====
This spell HAS NO USEFUL PURPOSE. It is not balanced, it has not been well-tested, and it will probably cause crashes. It's basically a gag spell and exists only for entertainment.

Details
=======
This spell arose as a mistake while developing a new mod. The effect was funny and I posted a video on Youtube about it. Turns out a lot of people wanted it, and who I am to argue? I cleaned it up a bit and here it is.

Incompatibility
===============
None, as far as I know.

Known Issues or Bugs
====================
This spells causes CTDs if you collect too many actors at once. I'm not sure what the limit is, it probably varies, but if you run around outside with it collecting giants, bandits, and critters, it will almost always crash eventually. Seems fine in towns.

Does not attract summoned actors like Atronachs or Skeletons.

Does not attract supermassive actors like Mammoths and Dragons.


Todo
====
Nothing. This spell is just for fun and has no development future.


Installation
=======

1. Extract this archive to any folder and then copy the contents to Skyrim's Data folder.
2. Start Skyrim, click Data Files, and enable the ActorBall.esp file.

Or simply use Nexus Mod Manager. ;)

Uninstall
=========


1. Start Skyrim Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the ActorBall.esp file(s).
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod.

Skyrim\Data\Scripts\ActorBallEffectScript.pex
Skyrim\Data\Scripts\ActorBallScript.pex

Or just use Nexus Mod Manager.

Upgrade
=======
Just overwrite everything, no problem.

=======
