Immersive Loot
Loot module is the heart of this mod.When it first came to existance, it was but a portion of what this module is today.Cells module was made to fulfill something I didn't want Loot to do it by itself because of higher incompatibility.The main thing this module does is removing culture and rare ( elven, ebony etc ) armors from common leveled lists.

• Adds special vendors with items other blacksmiths don't sell;
• Makes animal and corpse loot more immersive and/or realistic;
• Deleveled ( ench ) jewelry, potion, poison and gem loot allow you to get the finest diamonds and poisons at your hands since lvl 1.However, the higher the quality, the lower the chances of finding ( does not increase with lvl );
• Adds 4 armor pieces to the game, found on relevant leveled lists.

• Steel:
- Hooded Steel helmet;
- Robed Steel Plate armor.

• Iron:
- Iron Chainmail armor.

For installation, simply download with NMM and use pick what you want.Magic XML power will give you options to choose.
In case you intend to manually install, do the following:
1 - Extract the zip with WinRAR;
2 - Delete the esps you don't want, put the bsl, bsa and esp file and the folders on your Data folder at Skyrim's directory.
3 - Activate the esp with NMM, Wrye Bash or Skyrim's launcher.Done.

In case you want to uninstall ( what you don't ), just delete the files you put in there.No scripts, no bloat, no cry, no ragecomment on my mod.

This is mod is incompatible with:
• Loot overhauls ( except self );
• Mods that change leveled actors ( not so much );
• Mods that edit the Cells I did, such as Whiterun, Kilkreath Temple, Shops made robbable etc;
• Crafting overghauls, as I didn't patch them yet.

Using a "incompatible" mod WILL NOT break your game.A few mods that ARE compatible:
• Any Follower overhaul;
• Retextures;
• New sound/sound changes;
• ENBs, CoT, Realistic Lighting.

This is how your load order should be:
• [Esms]

• Mods that alter leveled lists but have o patches
• IL & IC as well as optionals
• DLC and mod Patches
• Dragonborn Patch ( in case you have Immersive Armors patch )
