Improved Vampirism

Dawnguard is required for this mod.

This mod fixes two problems with vampires that I found annoying.

The first one is how the vampires are a bit unbalanced, the only upside being a resistance to Frost. Oh, you're a Nord, where frost attacks to squat to you anyway? Sucks to be you.
So now, along with a resistance to frost, Vampires get a fortification to destruction, and a small resistance to everything.

The second one is the stages of Vampirism. I think it's kind of odd that vampires get stronger when they don't feed, the only consequence being that the sun hurts more. Vampires have to constantly feed to survive, so why did the game encourage scarce feeding. In what universe does ANYTHING get stronger by starving itself?
So I switched it up. You start out the strongest you can be, but get weaker the longer you go without feeding.

So, here's the end result.

Stage 1:
50% frost resist.
30% destruction fortification
10% resistance to all damage.
20% fire weakness.
Health, Magicka, and Stamina recover <75%> slower while in Sunlight.
Health, Magicka and Stamina are reduced 15 points when in sunlight

Stage 2:
40% frost resist.
20% destruction fortification
5% resistance to all damage.
30% fire weakness.
Health, Magicka, and Stamina recover <90%> slower while in Sunlight.
Health, Magicka and Stamina are reduced 30 points when in sunlight

Stage 3:
30% frost resist.
10% destruction fortification
40% fire weakness.
Health, Magicka, and Stamina don't recover in sunlight.
Health, Magicka and Stamina are reduced 45 points when in sunlight.

Stage 4:
20% frost resist.
50% fire weakness.
Health, Magicka, and Stamina don't recover in sunlight.
Health, Magicka and Stamina are reduced 60 points in sunlight.
You catch on fire in sunlight.

This mod does NOT change the stages at which you get vampire powers yet, but it dows make some of the powers usable more than once a day.

NOTE: If you're already a vampire when you get this mod, you'll have to go to a different stage of vampirism before the mod takes effect.

IS compatible with mods that make the vampire lord and such stronger and such.

I agree that having vampires grow powerful as they starve just doesn't make sense. It would also imply that those feeding on blood were trying to hide or 'escape' their vampirism, so it didn't follow that vampires were largely sadistic jerks.

Love the mod. Looking forward to the changes to the abilities and powers!

@The boss, just dont be angry that he has an opinion that is not yours ok?

if your doing this can you fix the drain life spell because it still only does 2 damage after feeding

frost resistance is not the only upside and if your a nord then its even better and vampires have vampiric drain which takes health from others and gives you health which is awesome and also you have 100% poison resist and 100% disease resistance its harder to be detected you get night eye you can raise the dead and also frost resistance improves on stages!
I am sorry but this mod is stupid if you think its better then there you go but I think it is pointless and just accept it and dont get all angry because I have a opinon thats not yours

Hate the feeding thing, i like that the more you don't feed the stronger you become, it makes so you don't have to worry about anything. Only fire mages of course lol.

It is compatible with Simple Reverse Vampirism, Skyrim-Blood is Everything WIP LOS, Void Sword 2 (Dawnguard required), Heart Breaker - A Killmove Mod, Vampire Seduction - more seductive please, Better Vampire and Bloodthirst - Vampire NPCs can feed?

I like the mod although I think you should switch the stages so that as the player feeds they can obtain vampire's seduction and embrace of shadows. They are for the more powerful vampires, after all.
