Playable Khajiit Cathay-raht

The Cathay-raht are much larger than the more commonly seen Suthay. These are the soldiers of the khajiit. Their imposing physique is offset by their stunted magicka regeneration. Due to their physique, they deal more damage and they can carry more. Select this add-on race during the character creation process.

Particulars: Size scale = 1.15. Stunted Magicka Regeneration = 1/6 normal rate. Melee damage is 15 percent higher. Speed is 15% faster. Initial carry = 350 instead of 300. Skill Bonuses: One-handed=10, Two-handed=5, Light Armor=5, Heavy Armor=5, Block=5, Sneak=5

Known Issues:
Game NPC's do not recognize your race as a khajiit. This causes any race generated comments to be omitted. This has caused a bug in at least on quest-line (DB). I am researching this topic at the moment.

The POV in first person is out of perspective - view is about center of chest - less noticeable with weapon drawn. This problem also exists in the game with taller default races, such as Orsimer (orcs), although it is not as noticeable. A Mod has been suggested as a Possible Fix:. The fix adjusts the first person 'skeleton'. Unfortunately, The user will have to manually change files, each time they want to play a different race.. The FIX is NOT my MOD. The download with instructions:

Some sliders used to customize the appearance are not working for some. This may be due to conflict with other DLC, but I'm uncertain.

Colorations and Pre-sets are default khajiit. These may be changed in the future to better fit the lore (piebald coloration / leopard-men)

Update info:
Reduced size from 1.22 (m) and 1.2 (f) to 1.15 for both genders, due to clipping issues and to better fit the lore. This is the approximate size of an in-game werewolf. Based on lore reseach, the size is more indicative of the Cathay-raht than the Cathay, hence the name-change. (Cathay-raht are larger than Cathay, and are about the same size as a werewolf.)

Senche-raht are large warriors, but they are not bi-pedal and are often employed as steeds.

The name of the large Khajiit warrior-breed is Senche-raht if I remember my last read of "Mixed Unit Tactics".

Thanks for the feedback guys. Most of the mod ideas are really good ideas, but I haven't time (nor ability) to make any new updates, changes or new mods at this time. If anyone wants to do alter this mod in anyway, you're more than welcome. You can even advertise your updeated mod here in the comments (and I'll note it in my intro when I check back in).. You can give me credit for the orignial if you want - or not. Thanks to all who subscribed, liked and commented. RuneRed

Maybe just make the table bigger when "playing" the animation of doing potions etc.?

Thanks, gaarkasand, I haven't noticed that, but I'll give it a look. But if it is a problem, I'm not sure if I'll be able to fix it because I have little knowledge how to adjust the animation.

I think you need to work on animation, for example, when preparing the potions or chopping wood, size does not match the character animation
