This mod is released ONLY on Nexus. If you see it on other pages it's probably stolen.

VERSION 2.1:
- IMPROVED TEXTURES
- IMPROVED MESHES
- DUAL COLOR POTIONS

- FOMOD INSTALLER AND CACO PATCH INCLUDED
- SOME SMALL FIXES

Huge thanks to Amelli and Shardoom who suggested the idea for animated version and posted helpful links. Thanks guys! This mod wouldn't exist without you.
Thanks to stevenmross1957 for being a test subject.

This mod is a total revamp of vanilla potions. It contains 1K retexture and meshes with animations for all vanilla potions and poisons. Adds about 150 modified potion models for skill potions, some quest potions, stronger restore potions, and few others. It also:
  • rebalances all potions' weight
  • adds Potion of the Phantom, Ice Wraith Bane and Nightshade Extract to leveled list, so you have a chance to buy them from alchemist merchants
  • adds more effects to Nightshade Extract.

It's meant for vanilla graphic, but it should work with almost any ENB. Visibility of the animations and intensity of the glow depend on many factors, including:

- in-game time of the day
- use of any lightening mods
- any light sources
- your screen and Skyrim's brightness settings
- overall display settings
- use of ENB  etc.

I didn't use any ENB when making videos and taking photos (except DB thick glass bottles potions image, because I forgot to turn it off).

If you feel the effects are too strong or too weak, you can try to use one of the optional files. With some ENBs animations are not visible during the night or they are not visible at all.


Each folder, either it is animated or non-animated version, includes Main files (000Main, 001NORMAL and 001THICK GLASS)  and optional files (002 OPTIONALS). Optional folder contains misc files:
  • legendary - requires both DLCs. Merged Dragonborn and Dawnguard misc files
  • DG - requires Dawnguard. It gives unique look to Soul Husk extract
  • DB - requires Dragonborn. It gives unique look to well-being potions and waterwalking potions
  • iNeed - requiers iNeed and iNeed Dangerous Diseases. It gives unique look to each cure disease potion
  • CACO patch - DB and DG files are included in this patch. It replaces prettypotions.esp.

MISC files are NOT patches. They are not required, however they give new look to potions added by those mods. Main files which are only retextures don't contain optional files.

INSTALLATION:

Fomod installer is included so you can just install with a mod installer. If it doesn't work, copy files from 000Main file folder to your Data folder. Choose if you want to use normal version or thick glass bottles version and copy files from a folder of your choice (either 001NORMAL or 001THICK GLASS) to Data folder as well. Do the same with optional files you would like to use.

UPDATE:
If you already use version 1.0 of the mod and want to update it to version 2.1, first delete "potions" folder from Data/textures/clutter, so you won't have any loose files. Then just install the new version, overwrite the rest of the files if asked. If you use version 2.0, simple replace files with new ones.

KNOWN ISSUES:
- sometimes there are visible pixels around the "decoration" on big poisons' bottles (from normal maps). I tried to fix it but without success so far.
- "flickering" liquid in Philter of the Phantom.

NOT COMPATIBLE with any mods that alter potions in any way.


I hope you like it. If so, please endorse :)
