Removes the stealthboy visual effect from the perk

*THIS MOD IS NOT A FIX FOR BEING PERMANENTLY INVISIBLE. TALK TO BETHESDA ABOUT IT*


Before the 1.6 update, the Sneak rank 5 perk was causing an invisibility bug. If you want to read about it more, you can at the bug report I posted.

With yesterday's update, the bug introduced with the Sneak rank 5 perk was fixed, but Bethesda also gave the perk a visual effect each time you start sneaking. A 1 second stealthboy effect applies every time you start sneaking. I'm guessing Bethesda wanted to add a visual effect, similar to Skyrim's SHADOW WARRIOR perk. However the Shadow Warrior perk from Skyrim was done in a much better way, since it applied such effect only when activating SNEAK during combat.

I've removed the 1 second visual duration from the effect itself, so now you can have the perk functioning perfectly without the effect.


Now you can sneak, without the stealthboy effect.





WHAT DOES SNEAK RANK 5 PERK DO?


"Engaging stealth causes distant enemies to lose you."

It is a useful sneaking perk that is extremely handy if you're discovered during combat and want to go into stealth again. It was bugged before 1.6 update came out.



HOW DOES IT DO IT?


If you are sneaking and suddenly get detected, you will get the [DANGER] sign above your crosshair. Whenever you are not detected, the sign will instead be [CAUTION]. With Sneak perk, if you are detected in combat and want to lose your enemies so you can go back into stealth, you need to be a certain distance from the enemy and start sneaking. To check whether you lost your enemies is quite simple. The [DANGER] sign will turn back into [CAUTION].


The screenshot below is an example of how far you need to be. It works even if you're closer than this.
