Ultimate Vampirism Overhaul provides a new playing experience for vampires in Skyrim with a new vampiric perk tree where vampires can gain different abilities, spells and powers. Upon becoming a vampire player added to Vampire Faction where vampires, thralls and wolves are no longer hostile towards player at any stage. Human vampire races have been edited to use a pale body texture and removed the dirt effect applied on vampire faces after transformation. Stages have been redone and reduced to 3 with a 2days/stages progression. Removed all visual effect and sundamage from stage1 vampires and because they are human-like,
