TheLostDeathKnight has uploaded a version which works with dawnguard vampires, along with a few other tweaks: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/33795

A small mod that changes the way your Race affects your skills.
You will no longer start the game with 10 less levels to gain in your Race's "specialised" area, instead, the bonus is added as a fortify effect, meaning a wood elf with max archery skill will be 10% better than an orc with max archery skill.

To be clear, I'll explain how Skyrim adds racial traits by default.
When choosing your level 1 character, you start at the lowest skill level (15). Then, depending on your race, your skills are 'bumped up' by a pre-determined value.
What I have done, is remove that boost, and added it instead as a bonus on top of your base skill level.
So even though you'll be starting at, say, level 15 archery for a wood elf, your level 15 archery will be +10 levels better than an orc's level 15 archery. Meaning you can level up the maximum 85 times even in your race's main skill area.

This mod adds a new racial effect to each race, modifying the relevant skills. The skills modified will be highlighted in the skills menu as are all fortified skill increases.


These effects are retroactive, so don't worry about them not applying to save games. It will not rob any skill levels from you either!

Hope you like, feedback appreciated!
