Mask of the Shapeshifter - Skillbooks

Available at NexusMods: https://www.nexusmods.com/divinityoriginalsin2definitiveedition/mods/277

This is the mod I originally made for my myself but eventually decided to publish, for I struggled to find a mod with desired functions.
Mod allows you to be in any shape you want without wearing the Mask Of The Shapeshifter itself and suffering armor, stats and fashion penalties.

**IMPORTANT FOR EXISTING SAVES** The only way to obtain skillbooks on an EXISTING SAVE is CRAFTING. Any masks you already have are will continue to act like a helmet. Fane's mask dropped from Windego will NOT be converted on an existing save even if mod is installed before her death.

-- This mod makes Masks of the Shapeshifter act exactly like regular skillbooks, teaching your character their respective skills.
-- Skills take 0 memory and count as innate.
-- For the purpose of preventing the player from using 1 mask on multiple character at the same time masks purposely are consumed after use. So be aware. Once you use certain mask on one character, you will be unable to switch it between your characters. Sorry, but I couldn't come to better solution.

I'm not a big modder and this is the very first mod I ever did. Due to lack of modding knowledge I do not pledge any compatibility or absence of bugs, even though I did the testing and found no issues.
Also, still, due to the structure of mod being rather simplistic, I am convinced that it should not cause any kind of issue.

I've explained the way I came to such design in the Features paragraph in the description. I know, it is far from perfect, but it is the best solution I could think of or was able to pull off while not ruining the immersion (at least for myself).

In any case, you can always just craft several masks for several characters if you wish.
Thanks for feedback.

Is it possible to instead make them scrolls that aren't consumed? This would make more sense

yeah upon testing (though it is an existing save so who knows if thats interfering with the other mod's ability to work anyways) it seems to make these other masks just turn into regular skillbooks :') so would be a good way to get free skillbooks on an existing save! but yet to find out if its possible to have both mods actually work in conjunction haha, just dont have the free time to start multiple new games with diff load orders etc to see if they could ever work :')

@TheForgotten Even though it's hard for me to say, Im about 99.999% sure it would NOT be. Yet still you can try, change load order back'n'forth.

Just keep in mind the note I left about "existing saves" when testing out my mod.

thought id ask it here cause you are much more responsive than the other author! would this be compatible with the mask of the shapeshifter enhanced mod? the one which lets you turn into other origin characters? if it would be, would it try turn those masks into skillbooks too? or would it keep them intact? either way is good, just as long as it wont just outright break my game haha!

turns out Organized Containers - DE is incompatible with this mod

For some reason I cant use Fane´s mask and if i craft a regular one upon using it i get a CTD

@The_Lie42 , exactly same way as the original: by talking to Fane about the mask, or interacting with eternal artifact in Blackpits cave.

Hey just wanted to ask if the book recipe was given at the start or given when picking up fane's mask? I playing in mutiplayer and just wanted to check if the mod was installed properly
