Longer Duration Crafting Potions

In 1 collection by Arod Snaux
My Setup
72 items
Increases the duration of crafted potions of Enchanting and Smithing from 30s to up to 10min, giving you enough time to find your items, browse your chants, and rename your items. Better-quality ingredients yield longer durations. (Spriggan Sap is best).

This fixes a major flaw in Skyrims design: if you are using a Fortify skill potion while crafting, you have only 30 seconds to locate your item, rename it, assign an enchant, and pick a soul gem. If you're too slow, you lose the potion magic and ruin your item. Now you will never run out of time on a potion because you are browsing for goods or trying to enter a new item name. Bad design, Bethesda!

Please note this only works on new potions you create via alchemy - the duration of purchased "stock" potions and crafted potions already in your inventory will not change.

Mod works fine only need to make sure it's activated in your mod list, if it's not working then maybe it's got something to do with your mod load order in witch case I can't help you.
Of course this is for the original skyrim so it won't work on the HD version.

This is what i have been looking for :'D
I have the materials to keep making the potions but 30 seconds are just not enough when i get so easily lost in all of the options when choosing an enchantment, most enchantments i can do in those 30s are 2, 3 if i'm really fast. With smithing i dont have that problem but omg the enchanting anoys me

Thanks for the mod :D

Been using this mod for a long time, and it's great and lore friendly as well. Thanks for a great mod that makes crafting a lot less of a hassle.
