PowerFang's Identified Books And No Reading on Pickup
< >

Does this only work for Skill books, or for all books?
Tagmaster Wuffley Jun 26, 2014 @ 4:04pm 
+1 to "please make one so you can pick up all books without reading them". Or at least a mod to make it so you can pick up books with QWES movement keys.

Powerfang do you reply to your posts here><G>

This mod will work with the mod un-read books glow as I'm using both mods. Un read books glow is available on neus where I wish he'd put this one.
DragonMaster Mar 23, 2014 @ 6:03am 
Great mod been using it for a while now with no problems. Now I was wondering what would be the chance of getting you to upload it to the Nexus and posting the link here for us? Trying to get all or most of my mods over there due to the strict 50 mod linit here. Don't want to start a new game and part way through Steam gets the bright idea to put the mod cap at 25 and there by breaking another game.

I see no one posted on this.The books were recently changed due to a patch.The mod has to be at the bottom if the load order for it to work properly.An that is i THINK working properly.I currently have a DPI issue with my mouse.Giving me Multiple clicks.I have uninstalled this mod an many others an found some other mods that are identical to mods LIKE this like Glowing books and such can cause a rapid click button issue.

This issue causes looking lets say Ore.To double click.This makes you instantly stop looting the node.An the node becomes unlootable.I cant even assure anyone of any of the mods names because I dont know.But if you have this issue please post it.

Can you make one that stops you from reading ALL books on pickup please?

Great mod... Together with the perk 'philosopher' from Perky's Perkoverhaul, this is going to be something formidable.
Bees? Dec 30, 2012 @ 9:25pm 
How do you uninstall this mod without breaking the skill books?
retribution Oct 17, 2012 @ 1:53pm 
still working on that version to make ALL books no read on pickup?
Artur Oct 12, 2012 @ 11:18am 
Yeah, I think it would be great to have those options separated. I'd really love that.
Eslaya 石熙文 Aug 2, 2012 @ 9:41pm 
I have the opposite request of Artur, can you create a version without the identification but with the no reading on pickup?
Artur Jul 20, 2012 @ 8:14pm 
Will you create a version with just identified books? (I mean without 'no reading on pickup' option)
RTK | Liefur Eiriksson May 23, 2012 @ 3:13am 
Awesome mod but you missed a book! (I just read on pick up in Shrouded Grove Cave and it wasn't marked its a light armor book) called ice and chitin.
DerEider Apr 22, 2012 @ 11:26am 
Like this idea. Found by referral from Malkof. Can always choose to read right away from "I".
Damion Apr 11, 2012 @ 8:45am 
You may want to think this one out a little more and perhaps leave US with the option to read, pick up, or steal. Idea is interesting though.
Paganini Mar 16, 2012 @ 12:42pm 
enchanting is a pain i think that could do with a look at takes ages to enchant a few items. glad someone is looking at these little annoying traits & sorting them. Wish i had time, patiencs & knowhow to do some -] hope you all keep up the good work.
dobiegirl1 Mar 6, 2012 @ 8:53pm 
P.S. also like the tags for the recognition.
dobiegirl1 Mar 6, 2012 @ 8:51pm 
Simple and and nice for book collectors abroad in Skyrim.Saves alot of in game time if you already found a skill book and read it. Nice addition to the game. Rated 9/10 for nothing is perfect.
Artur Feb 27, 2012 @ 3:00pm 
Could you create a version of this mod, which appends tags to names but DOESN'T feature no reading on pickup? Or tell me (us) how to edit your mod, so I could disable the option myself?
MadamJuggernaut Feb 26, 2012 @ 10:03pm 
I am having trouble with accidental theft also, but this is the only Skill tag mod that works in tandem correctly with Unread Books Glow. I wish it didn't make me steal things though.
kildynn Feb 24, 2012 @ 4:14pm 
I hate how the update makes me pick up the book instead of reading it. Unsubscribing. Maybe make that pick-up or read thing as an option somehow then I'll resubscribe.
Soloeus Feb 22, 2012 @ 5:34pm 
same problem - i went to read a book and stole it instead. uninstalling and unsubscribing.
s.clark314 Feb 19, 2012 @ 7:29am 
Well, this is a problem since taking a book is still stealing, which is inappropriate at certain times. I t would be better to maintain the read first option without having to steal the book in order to gain the level up action. Does that make sense?
PowerFang  [author] Feb 18, 2012 @ 2:08pm 
I will keep this mod at only effecting SKILL books however i am making an additional mod that has all of this mods changes aswell as making ALL books not read on pickup - its almost done.
Grelman Feb 18, 2012 @ 9:45am 
Wait it does work, I thought it was for all books, so theres no bug.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 18, 2012 @ 12:29am 
If the mod doesnt work, it means you have a conflicting mod. To prove that is the case, save the game next to a skill book, then disable all other addons except for mine. Then load your savegame and loot the book. If it works, then you have a conflicting mod. If it doesnt work doing this test, then it means there is a bug in my mod - but there would be more people complaining if it completely didnt work :)

If your test does fail for whatever reason, if you tell me what book you were trying to pick up, i will test that particular book (since the change is done per book, its *possible* i have missed one - however i'm pretty sure all the skill books are done)

Way to go man, I dont have skyrim, but im subscrided to all of these mods because when I do have it ill be able to enjoy skrim abit more :D
Grelman Feb 17, 2012 @ 9:29pm 
Just doesn't work for me
PowerFang  [author] Feb 16, 2012 @ 10:43pm 
@Tecdemonic - Yeah unfortunatly mods override any inbuilt translations and my German is limited to Ich Bin PowerFang.

@FrenzifiedWizard - Its possible to be done for all books - its literally a matter of me apply the same script to all the remaining books - i.e. its just a time sink. I'll see how many there are when i get home and if i ever get bored of making fun magic spells in the editor, i'll go through them :)
BitterNaut Feb 16, 2012 @ 9:33pm 
@PowerFang: Sorry about that, the problem was that I thought the no read on pickup applied to ALL books, not just skill books xD
Tecdemonic Feb 16, 2012 @ 5:58pm 
Is there a possibility to make a German version of this mod?
Because it make a skillbooks written in english... :(
lwtom ↯ Feb 16, 2012 @ 2:11pm 
Works now! yay! Thanks!
Fredkruge Feb 16, 2012 @ 12:37pm 
looks like a cool idea man, nice job.
Grasshopper (메뚜기) Feb 16, 2012 @ 12:37pm 
Was waiting for a no read on pickup mod thanks a lot!
PowerFang  [author] Feb 16, 2012 @ 12:34pm 
@FrenzifiedWizard - make sure you dont have any other mods installed that effect books. To prove my mod works, only load my mod and the skyrim files and try and pickup a book - it should work.
BitterNaut Feb 16, 2012 @ 12:03pm 
Hmm, trying to pick books off the shelf in my save game and it's still reading them.
4ltair Feb 15, 2012 @ 6:45pm 
I would love a version of this mod only for No read on pick-up, without the detalied book titles.
Anyways, good job, this mod was needed since 11.11.11
OldmansHQ Feb 15, 2012 @ 6:27pm 
Ineed, I do have another mode for books, it makes some of those glow, these particular ones which I have not read. It is probably that. I forgot about that! Thanks for reminding.. Too bad this mod, and the other one are not combined.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 15, 2012 @ 4:06pm 
Ok i am thinking of making it PICKUP the book if you are SNEAKING when you click on a skill book and READ the skill book if you arent sneaking. I've got the script all done, i'm just unsure if i should apply it to this mod or if i should make a seperate one.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 15, 2012 @ 1:26pm 
p.s. if for whatever reason you try my test and it still doesnt work, let me know what book you are testing this on and what location and i will test your specific case.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 15, 2012 @ 11:44am 
@ooldxman : I retested it using completely different books this time and it works fine. But my mod actually edits the book item so if you have another mod that is also editing the book, i.e. you have another mod that changes the title, then it will be overwriting my changes.

So basically, make sure you have no other mod installed that edits the book item. To prove this is the case, Save the game right next to a skill book, exit the game and only load the skyrim esp and my mod and load your save game. Then pickup the book. If this works, then you know you have another mod that is conflicting with mine and overwriting my changes. If this doesnt work, then it means i have a bug but its working fine for me.
OldmansHQ Feb 15, 2012 @ 10:35am 
Henx: Read my comment again, slowly. You read through it too quickly.
[i]Henx Feb 15, 2012 @ 8:58am 
@ooldxman You do realize that is basicly the point of this mod, right? Read the description (and comments) it says the mod makes the books no longer readable on pickup
OldmansHQ Feb 15, 2012 @ 7:37am 
Hey, it does not work for me! I can see which skill it will improve, however I can not pick it up without first reading the book. Perhaps I am just missing somethnig? Help me please.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 15, 2012 @ 4:58am 
Mod is updated now obviously to have the "No Read on Pickup" for Skill books.
PowerFang  [author] Feb 15, 2012 @ 3:44am 
Success!! - i've been able to make the default action be the book is picked up and then you only learn the skill once you read it again from your inventory.

The only bug is it wont flag you as "stealing" the book if you pick it up this way (Not really a major thing and its probably preferred that way). I've just got to clean up all my test code and then i will update the mod.
Happy Feb 14, 2012 @ 10:29pm 
nice one :D
PowerFang  [author] Feb 14, 2012 @ 3:27am 
Ok it looks like stopping the books from being read is possible and i'm close - the issue seems to be when you first "click" on a book, it triggers different events then when you do it a second time. So after you click on it once, i can prevent it being read from then onwards - but that defeats the purpose :) So i'm close to figuring it out.
specularr Feb 12, 2012 @ 10:27am 
Great mod, thanks!
