Sick of going out of your way to earn enough gold for training each level while keeping the skill progression slow enough to not level up more than one level at a time? Fed up with Bethesda's retarded way to implement skill training and level gains? This mod allows you to save your unused training sessions for later levels, for example if you've trained twice on level 1 and then level up you will have a limit of 8 training sessions on level 2 (if you are using the default training limit of 5 sessions per level). Thus you get all your training sessions and you don't cheat, because the mod won't allow you to train any more than you (theoretically) could in vanilla skyrim. It just takes away the inconvenience to actually do this.

Extract "SmartTraining.esp" into your skyrim/Data folder. Activate it by starting the Skyrim launcher, selecting "Data Files" and ticking it or use a mod manager.

Simply deactivate the plugin in the launcher or your mod manager.

This mod needs the skyrim script extender (SKSE) to work. Get it here:

Do not use together with mods that increase the training limit per level to absurdly high values like 1000. The training sessions will accumulate over your levels to values that are too high to display any more.
Other than that, Smart Training should work with any other mod because it doesn't actually overwrites the number of training sessions per level game setting but rather uses an SKSE function to dynamically change it at run time (while you are playing). It even checks for the current value of the setting when it is first initialized and uses that as a base so you can use it together with mods that change the number of training sessions per level (for instance the "Requiem" which changes this value from 5 to 3). Load order doesn't matter either.

If you install this mod and load a save game where you have already trained on your current level, the training limit will not be set correctly. This is because I could not find a way to access the "times trained this level" value as shown in the training menu, but only the total number of times you trained as displayed in the general stats section of the journal. Thus the script has no way to know how many times you have trained on your current level. The problem can only appear on the first level you use this mod with and will be fixed once you gain a level.
Also, the script updates once every 5 seconds (outside of menus) to check if you level up, so wait at least that time before you train again after you gained a level.

If there are any other problems, let me know.
