Character Creation Overhaul + Optional Modules
5 items
This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED optional module for Character Creation Overhaul located at:

You must have the Character Creation Overhaul for this mod to work.

Specialized skills in previous Elder Scrolls games progressed faster than non-specialized skills. In Skyrim, all skills progress at the same rate, making each character more adaptable, but also no different from any other character. Character Creation Overhaul brings dynamic skill progression to Skyrim and improves upon it by having specialized skills, racial skills, and major skills all easier to learn (to varying degrees) while making untrained skills harder to learn. This feature is highly recommended but can be optionally disabled in-game.

okay, now i've tried the book. i've tried uninstalling all the related mods (correctly i believe) but it did not change the fact that 4 skills are uninprovable (even using skill trainers), only way to increase them is by using the console to set skills to desired level.

i then reinstalled the mods (cause i still like them even though i have to set some skills manually) and i will probebly do another playthrough at some point and i want to have this mod for that (but will probebly be more on the look-out for buggs).

thanks for trying to help!

Yes, the book is called "A New Beginning", you can also try the uninstall option from the book, but like I said, it may or may not work because of the double menu bug.

If you don't have the book you can add it again using the console. Type 'help "A New Beginning"' note down the ItemID then type "player.additem ItemID"

hmm, didn't you have a manual disable (ingame) for this particular part of the mod, a book?. because as far as i have understood the major problem lies with that the skill increases multiplicatory depending on your starting bonuses (aka where your skills start out) and me starting with a skill level of -5 in some skills, have made them reach 0% skill growth.

so was that book for disabling dynamic skill progression, or was it for all parts of the mod? :)

thank you very much for replying so fast :)

Hi Illiyariya, yes you are right. I'm sorry you have run into the double menu bug. As I've posted before, I really don't know why it affects some users, but if some of your skills are negative or at 100 then it is definitely this bug.

You can try using the CCO Uninstaller (search for it under my workshop) to undo the changes without losing all your progress, this may or may not work properly with the double menu bug; I wasn't able to try it myself. Please make a backup save before you do this.

Alternatively, if that doesn't work you can use the console commands to manually adjust your skill levels.

If all else fails the only other option is to load a save prior to using CCO and try again. Make sure you do *not* click the "Change Race" button in CCO and that should solve the bug.

i loved the way the choosen abilities level up faster, but i noticed that some of my skills (like restoration and destruction) had a starting value of -5, seemed wierd but no biggie cause i use them quite often so they should go up sooner or later. until i just realised they do not level up at all, they do not even recieve experience. (this of course is because of how you set the skills to level up, and the bugg i encountered. it is indeed from using "change race").

I really need to be able to level up all skills, even at a slower pace. but i have alot of hours on my character now so i don't want to restart the game. is there any way of fixing this without restarting? hope you still answer check here! :)

Hi, i started playing with this mod enabled a while ago. and it seems i encountered the "double racial bonuses" (or what you called it, just read older comments). i didnt think to much about it in the start, i had a couple abilities at close-to-100, but i didnt think to much about it cause it doesnt do anything to your levels and i just put them as legendary skills dircly when they reached 100.

Hi satayagraha, yes I completely recommend slowing down your overall leveling speed. I use Elys Community Uncapper (you can google it) to set my own leveling speed (about 40% slower). Unfortunately CCO cannot slow down leveling without causing issues so you'll need another mod to do it. Hope that helps.

Overall level progression seems to be disproportionately fast. Just out of Bleak Falls Barrow I'm already level 8. Because I use my favoured skills a lot. I intentionally let everything that could hit me hit me on shield and armor at every opportunity and when in Riverwood I 'smithed' on just about everything.

Just wondering: Could it be done so that unfavoured skills are learned slowly instead of favoured skills being learned faster? I know it would make the game slightly harder overall, but still.

Otherwise a brilliant mod that makes character creation a greater experience. Keep up the good work.
