This is a complete overhaul of Skyrim's menu system. Not the menus themselves, but how everything is sorted. I know there are already a bunch of sorting mods on the Nexus, but they all fell short of what I personally wanted and I never felt comfortable asking someone to spend hours of their time modding for my benefit so I did it myself. I quite literally renamed thousands and thousands of files. I posted some screenshots that should show mostly how I did things, but i'll go more in depth on each section as there are a few things the screenshots do not show.

Agony's Sorting Frenzy is an ongoing project to make as many mods compatible as possible so you don't run into the issues other sorting mods have of their files being overwritten and messed up. I generally stick to the most popular mods (1000 endorsements +) unless I personally use a less popular mod or receive a request for a conversion. The only requests I won't undertake are for the more "adult" mods out there. Nothing against the modders or the people that use them, just isn't my taste.

General and Lore

Anything that had been named Dwarven is now named Dwemer. All the lore I've seen refers to them as dwemer so I felt all their items and constructs should also be referred to as dwemer. Also, Gold has been renamed as Septims for the same reason. The currency has always been Septims so why would they list it as gold in the inventory and menus? Most things should be changed now, however, I do randomly find something that hasn't been and fix it so if you see something just throw me a comment and I'll fix it.

I used the prefix Quest: to label various quest items for easy identification, although I have to give the credit to Valdacil as I used his item sorting mod as a reference. I did not know how to tell if an item was quest or not and have not played the game far enough to really know so I cheated. Valdacil, I believe, was one of the pioneers to the item sorting genre, proceeded only by Better Sorting, and did a really great job. Plus his mod is completely modular so if you decide you only want some items sorted his mod is the way to go. You can find it here

I've added a configuration for Categorized Favorites Menu that should work with my patches for all the mods listed above.

I've also incorporated Lostvampires RelativePrice _ Gold per Weight Value to calculate the amount of gold an item is worth per pound. I sent Lostvampire an email asking permission to merge his mod and I never heard back. If Lostvampire comes around and says he does not want his mod merged with mine I will remove it. You can find the original mod here


All potions and poisons have all been given a prefix to fit them into their own categories. Furthermore, all CREATED potions and poisons will have the same name as any you find in the world space except for the intensity. Also special potions have been better sorted as well while still retaining the original names for lore.

World Space
Poison: Health, Damage I
Poison: Health, Damage II
Poison: Magicka, Lingering Damage V
Potion: Resist Frost II
Potion: Resist Frost IV
Potion: Stamina VI

Poison: Health, Damage
Poison: Health, Damage
Poison: Magicka, Lingering Damage
Potion: Resist Frost
Potion: Resist Frost
Potion: Stamina

Potion: Health {Falmer Blood Elixer}
Potion: Resist Frost {Ice Wraith Essence}
Potion: Stamina {Skooma}


All ammo has been given the prefix Arrow: for easy reference.

Arrow: Bound
Arrow: Daedric
Arrow: Glass
Arrow: Iron


All of the armor and clothing have been given prefixes to be sorted in a more organized fashion. If the item is magical then the enchantment has been listed with the intensity whilst retaining the original name for lore.

Amulet: Ancient Nord
Amulet: Gold Necklace
Amulet: Necklace {Fortify Stamina III} of Major Stamina
Armor: Fur Shoes
Armor: Fur
Armor: Fur Bracers
Armor: Daedric Gauntlets {Fortify Archery V} of Extreme Archery
Armor: Daedric Gauntlets {Fortify Archery VI} of Peerless Archery
Circlet {Fortify Alchemy IV} of Eminemt Alchemy
Circlet {Fortify Destruction III} of Major Destruction

Ring {Fortify Two-Handed II} of Sure Grip
Robes: Red
Robes: Red, Hooded
Robes: Novice
Robes: Novice Hood
Shield: Dwemer
Shield: Dwemer {Resist Fire IV} of Fire Suppression


All books, notes, journals, maps, spell tomes, etc have been given their own prefixes. Skill books now have their skill listed and books that give quests are also listed as such. Spell Tomes have in addition been sorted by school and perk level.

Book: Ahzirr Traajijazeri
Book: An Explorer's Guide to Skyrim {Map}
Book: The Legend of Red Eagle {Quest}
Book: The Refugees {Light Armor}
Book: Twin Secrets {Enchanting}
Journal: Faded Diary
Journal: Hunter's
Journal: Ruined Trailbook
Map: Fort Neugrad Treasure
Map: Treasure Map IV
Map: Treasure Map X
Note: Have Need of Cynric
Note: Isabelle's Letter
Note: To the Brotherhood
Recipe: Atronach Forge
Recipe: Invisibility Potion
Recipe: Restore Health Potion
Spell Tome: {Alteration III} Detect Life
Spell Tome: {Conjuration I} Conjure Familiar
Spell Tome: {Conjuration III} Banish Daedra
Spell Tome: {Destruction IV} Icy Spear
Spell Tome: {Restoration V} Bane of the Undead


All items in the miscellaneous menu used in crafting have been labeled with the prefix Craft: for easy identification. I have also added subcategories for groups such as ore and ingots. Furthermore, any mods that add recipes will be gone through and have any additional items labeled with the craft: prefix as needed.

Craft, Gem: Diamond
Craft, Gem: Diamond, Flawless
Craft, Hide: Deer
Craft, Hide: Fox
Craft, Ingot: Orichalcum
Craft, Ingot: Steel
Craft, Ore: Dwemer Cog
Craft, Ore: Iron
Craft, Ore: Quicksilver
Craft: Dragon Bone
Craft: Dragon Scales
Craft: Leather
Craft: Leather Strips

Example with Mods
Craft: Firewood
Craft: Linen Wrap


All food and drinks have been given a prefix to separate them into their own categories.

Cooked: Beef Roast
Cooked: Mammoth Steak
Cooked: Potato, Baked
Drink: Nord Ale
Drink: Nord Mead
Drink: Spiced Wine
Raw: Beef
Raw: Mammoth
Raw: Potato


All ingredients have been given the prefix Ingredient: I realize that they have their own menu in the inventory, however, if you don't have a mod separating the contents of a chest in a similar fashion they can be easily looked over. I also did not sort the ingredients by type (egg, feathers, claws, etc) for the sole purpose of there being many alchemy programs and apps you can use to make alchemy easier. These programs have the ingredients listed in alphabetical order so if I were to sort by type it would mess up the original alphabetical order and make using these programs a pain.

Ingredient: Chaurus Eggs
Ingredient: Large Antlers
Ingredient: Pine Thrush Egg
Ingredient: Small Antlers


Keys have been reworked for the same reason as the ingredients. Also I may have edited some names to make finding the right key a little easier.

Key: Brandy-Mug Farmhouse
Key: Mehrunes' Shrine
Key: Riften Fishery


All items that I saw as vendor trash have been given the prefix Misc: for easy selling. There may some items I missed or wasn't sure of so I'll fix as I find them or if you want to shoot me a comment about any you find I'll fix those as well.

Misc: Bowl, Dwemer
Misc: Cup, Dwemer
Misc: Cup, Glazed
Misc: Linen Wrap


Scrolls have been adjusted in the same fashion as the spell tomes.

Scroll of {Destruction III} Lightning Cloak
Scroll of {Illusion II} Calm
Scroll of {Illusion III} Frenzy

Soul Gems

Soul Gems have been given the prefix Soul Gem: for easy locating. I did not differ the names between empty and filled soul gems as I noticed the game lists the level soul located in the gem for you.

Soul Gem: Black
Soul Gem: Common
Soul Gem: Grand


The spells were a little more difficult to come up with a system that would manage them neatly and hold onto the original names for lore. I decided to sort them by type/effect and perk level more so than by name and am quite happy with the result. Unfortunately sorting by type makes converting magic mods extremely difficult as modders spells generally have more than one effect or the effect is hard to discern. The examples will explain the whole system better.

{Detect III} Life
{Light I} Candlelight
{Protect IV} Ebonyflesh
{Protect V} Dragonhide

{Banish III} Daedra
{Bound I} Sword
{Bound II} Battleaxe
{Bound III} Bow
{Conjure IV} Dragon Priest
{Raise V} Dead Thrall

{Cloak III} Flame
{Fire III} Fireball
{Frost V} Blizzard
{Shock III} Chain Lightning
{Wall IV} of Frost

{Calm II} Calm
{Courage I} Courage
{Courage V} Call to Arms
{Fear II} Fear

{Circle IV} of Protection
{Heal III} Close Wounds
{Heal IV} Grand Healing
{Repel V} Bane of the Undead


Weapons were done in the same fashion as the armor where each type has its own prefix and the enchantment and intensity is listed.

Battleaxe: Bound
Battleaxe: Ebony {Frost IV} of Freezing
Bow: Ebony {Banish V} of Expelling
Bow: Elven {Fire III} of Scorching
Bow: Elven {Soul Trap IV} of Animus
Bow: Nightingale
Dagger: Daedric
Dagger: Ebony {Turn Undead V} Virtuous
Greatsword: Dwemer {Fear II} of Cowardice
Greatsword: Glass {Magicka V} of Enervating
Mace: Dwemer {Shock III} of Shock
Mace: Dwemer {Shock IV} of Thunderbolts
Sword: Ancient Nord
Sword: Blade
Sword: Gauldur Blackblade {Absorb Health IV}
War Axe: Iron, Lunar {Silent Moons III}
War Axe: Orcish
War Axe: Steel
Warhammer: Elven {Absorb Stamina III} of Reaping
Warhammer: Shagrol's

Ultimate File

Agony's Sorting Frenzy - Ultimate is an all in one .esp of all the mods I have made compatible so far with a few exceptions. The Ultimate file is able to work because most mods ADD items into the lists instead of replacing them. Typically the only files not able to be in Ultimate are overhaul mods such as Unofficial Skyrim Patch, More Craftables, and Complete Crafting Overhaul as they replace too many vanilla files. I labelled the files differently so all mods not included would be located at the bottom. All the files are preceded by an _ as in _Unofficial Skyrim Patch, _More Craftables, _Complete Crafting Overhaul.

Another thing to note is that some mods that add items also for some reason edit a vanilla item as well. That edited vanilla item is NOT included in the Ultimate file as is could pose conflicts between mods. An example is Joe Schmo's Superb Bows Mod adds 15 bows and also edits the iron bow and steel bow. Well Wendy's Super Duper Bows Mod adds 20 bows and also edit the daedric bow and steel bow. The Iron and Daedric Bows would be fine, but which Steel Bow should I choose to use? For this reason I just remove the vanilla edits before adding the mod. The exception to this is in the miscellaneous menu with the Craft: items. I do include the changed Craft: items with the mod, but this also poses a problem. If you don't use all the mods Ultimate encompasses then you may have items labelled Craft: that have nothing to do with crafting. I assumed people would rather have this issue than not having the items labelled properly so I went with it.


Just copy the .esp and the Interface folder into the data folder or have the Nexus Mod Manager do it for you. The Main File should load very early in the load order and all optional files should load after it and their respective mods. The ultimate file should load after all included mods.
