GOLD is a mod that greatly increases gold amount in various containers. It stands for Gold Overhaul and Loot reDone. These containers include chests, urns, boss chests, satchels, and barrels. Not only will you get more gold, you will get more jewelry, arrows, ingots, lockpicks and soul gems. I didn't add many different items to chests unless it would fit the type of chest. I just increased spawn amounts. I also decreased the chance of none for gold change to 0. So any container that has a LootGoldChange entry in it will now have a 100% chance to give gold instead of 90%. I didn't edit all containers, but I did increase loot in most. In dungeons with a boss chest, you can easily get 3000+ septims. Also, some containers that you think should contain loot may not because Bethesda has set aside certain containers as Empty by Default, like the urns on the table in Bleak Falls Barrow. I might include an optional file to add stuff to these, but these are used for a reason.

~Realistic Version~
The realistic version is obviously a more realistic and more toned down version of my other mod. I have edited not just gold, but other items found in containers to be more realistic. For example, wardrobes, now instead of only containing one shirt, can contain two or three. There is no ridiculous amount of gold in anything either. Boss chests are still better than in vanilla, but aren't as OP as in the normal version. It is a satisfying hybrid. Also, some containers like Dwarven chests will now hold Dwarven scraps and other items that I added, just for immersion. But I did remove gold from some containers to make it just a bit more realistic and so you couldn't buy all of Skyrim when you are level 20. This version does not include treasure chests so it is a very small file with no scripts and no changes to loot tables other then increasing chance of gold to 100. This means it should be very compatible with almost any mod, except for more locked containers. I will be continuing to update this version to expand on loot tables and make it even more realistic. But right now, I wanted to get a version out for people who don't want a Skyrim with not one septim to be found, vanilla Skyrim, or a Skyrim where you can buy Proudspire Manor after visiting bleak falls barrow. So be sure to watch for more updates coming soon. You can check images to see an example or a typical boos chest.

~LITE Version~
This is just for people who only want gold boosted. I have not touched any other loot items except for gold. What I did for example was, I changed LootGoldChange to always give gold instead of only 90% of the time, and changed any container that had gold change to that. And then I increased the amount of gold significantly. Exploring Skyrim should now be rewarding, but you won't be walking around with a backpack full of swords, jewelry, armor, and misc. items to sell because Belethor only has 750 gold. Overall, it's not a huge change, but you will notice you can buy that armor sooner, or you can live in luxury at Proudspire Manor earlier then ever before. 

~Treasure Chests~
You can now find 6 gold chests across Skyrim. These are obvious and are very easy to spot. You just have to know where to look. These are in lore friendly locations. Think Jarl. One is located in the Dragonsreach Jarl Quarters. A few will be locked, but only if you can get to it without being seen. You own everything in these chests though so you don't have to worry about stolen items. These can't be disabled, but if you don't want them don't open them. They are lore friendly and if you aren't looking, you probably won't find them.
Thanks to Oaristys and Tony67 for the chest mesh and texture. Modders Resource Pack
Also thanks to worksa7 for the chest idea.

The treasure chests are not in the No Gold Version for obvious reasons. They also are not included in the Realistic Version.

Normal Version- Increased Gold and Loot
No Gold Version- No gold in any containers
Realistic Version- More realistic loot
LITE Version - Just a gold boost. Nothing else

This GREATLY increases gold in containers. If you do not want this, do not install this!!!!

To counter the great amount of gold you are going to be getting i suggest getting a few mods.
Weighted Gold
Bank of Skyrim
Cutthroat Merchants

My mod should pretty much be compatible with any mod unless the mod changes loot tables or leveled lists that my mod uses.

Step 1. Locate your Skyrim data folder (Usually located here for the steam version: C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonSkyrimData)
Step 2. Extract contents of zip to this folder
Step 3. Make sure it is enabled in either NMM or your Data Files in the launcher

Simply click Download with Nexus Mod Manager and then double click on it in the mods section, then make sure it gets enabled.

This mod will be receiving updates inconsistently. I have no set schedule but I will work on it as I think of ideas.

~To Do List~
Hardcore Version
Cheat Version
