Cleanup your SKYRIM Save file, rmeove all that uneccessary clutter that loads down your save game. Guaranteed to decrease loading times for the heavy players. :D

Permissions and credits
Welcome to the SKYRIM Save Cleaner tool

This tool is designed to safely remove selected FORM ID's (REFR, PARW, ACHR and CELL) from your save file in a click of a button
remove just one :)

***A Native Save Backup is created before the process begins as of 1.8.3+
so you can always revert back to it if needed :D, it is located in the same director as the tool with a date and time stamp so its easy to keep track of which save file is which ^_^

***The Tool Now supports DLC REFR's as of version 1.3+

The way the tool works, is: If a FORM ID is flagged as moved or Havok moved or inappropriate ;), the item is deleted from the game including its data. this in turn, lets the game reset the item back to its default location, hence saving save file space and decreasing loading times ^_^

(well actually the Player moved them, havok looks after them ^_^)

The tool is designed and coded to be 100% safe, but bare in mind im only Human ;). thats why i now have a Save Backup feature just in case ^_^

this tool can easily clean-up the following, just to name a few:

Abacean Longfin
Ash Pile
Bear Trap
Blue Butterfly
Corundum Ore Vein
Cyrodilic Spadetail
Ghostly Remains
Gold Ore Vein
Ice Pile
Iron Ore Vein
Luna Moth
Monarch Butterfly
Moonstone Ore Vein
Orichalcum Ore Vein
Quicksilver Ore Vein
River Betty
Silver Ore Vein
Silverside Perch
UNLOADED references
soul gems laying around
Weapons laying around
apparel laying around
Arrows from random encounters
CELL data (not homes you own)
Optional Actor Cleanup, leveled and Dead NPC's

These FORM ID's are not touched

Quest Items flagged as "Promoted" and "Item Extra Data" and "Encounter Zone"
Radiant Quest Items
Weapons in Display cases
Weapons on Weapon Racks
Weapons on Weapon Plaques
Shields on Shield Plaques
Thieves Guild Trophies
Hearthfire House Trophies
Hearthfire House Crops
location REFR's like Falkreath and Markarth
CELL's you own
CELL's interiors

Known Issue:
-Bookshelves remove the Book from the shelf,
fix: Just enter into the bookshelf then exit the bookshelf.....TADA

-Cleaning up your Dead Leveled ACHR's will bring back the slayed dragons which in turn makes them attack the towns again, so be prepared
-fix: slay them again :D

-Dead dragons will appear as CELL's are reset,
fix: the dragons will disappear after ~3 days in game, tested with 3 days passing( in a different cell) and reloading the save

the tool goes though your save file and deletes these references and then the game resets them to there default location, hence no need to save anything to your save file

You can manually search for an item if you know your FORMID
this is a static reference:
001176AA etc
this is a dynamic reference:
FF1176AA etc

The tool knows the difference :D, so just enter the FORM ID as you see it :D

You will be surprised just how many references are loafing your save file down.

Running on my 60Hr save file the tool found 24000+ references
the tool cleaned up these references and viola my savefile size dropped from 14MB to 11MB

Your quests progress and other save data is not touched. This is purely for the References in game.

How to use the tool:
Remember a backup is always necessary ^_^, just in case

1. Load SKYRIM on your PC and load your save file.
2. Once you are in the game, open the console using the ~ key on your keyboard
3. type in the following:
save mysave 1
4. The game will now make a dump file, so you will need to wait a few minutes while the dump is generating the "mysave.ess.txt" AND "mysave.ess"
5. load SKYRIM Save Cleaner.exe
6. click on "fix all REFR's", Follow the prompts "mysave.ess.txt" AND "mysave.ess" are in your skyrim saves folder
eg. "C:\Users\user\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves"
7. the tool will take approx 2 min searching for the REFRs'
8. the tool will take approx 10min removing the found REFR's (SKYRIM IS HUGE, so is your savefile)
9. once finished load "mysave.ess" in your game of SKYRIM from the Load Menu
10 play ^_^

Experienceing issues?
try moving your save files and SKYRIM Save Cleaner to the root of your Hard drive.

eg. C:\Skyrim Save Cleaner.exe

then, try again ^_^
