About this mod

Makes Complete Alchemy and Cooking Overhaul use the animated potion bottles from XxAwesome_PotionsxX.

Permissions and credits
XxAwesome_PotionsxX makes potions look magical, but it isn't compatible with Complete Alchemy and Cooking Overhaul (in fact, the result of using the two together is actually rather yuck: the potions are standard CACO shape, but greyscale). So, this patch merges the effects, names, and prices of CACO with the pretty graphics of xAPx.

I know kryptopyr has a Patch Hub for SSE that includes an XxAwesome PotionsxX_CACO patch that says it was ported from LE, but I can't find the original LE patch, so rather than attempting to backport (a risky prospect) I just made a new one. It only changes the items that the original xAPx changed; things it didn't touch are also untouched. The only thing that's not xAPx style are the player-made potions and poisons; these are in the style of CACO, with generic filling, because I thought that was nicer to look at than a terracotta flask.

I may experiment with different filling styles of player-made potions/poisons, or with assigning xAPx styles to other CACO potions, but for now, enjoy this patch as it is.

Skyrim LE (Dawnguard, HearthFires, Dragonborn)
Wiseman303's Flora Fixes (requirement for CACO)
Complete Alchemy and Cooking Overhaul
Not required but strongly recommended: USLEEP

Install WM303's FF, CACO, xAPx, and this patch, in that order. Use a mod manager, as while this patch is just one .esp file, the requirements have multiple folders and no one wants to chase them all down.
