DESCRIPTION
===========
Cipscis' Automatic Save Manager, or CASM for short, adds configurable automatic and hotkey saving to Skyrim.
CASM does not affect Skyrim's existing quicksave or autosave systems. It can be used alongside them, or you can disable them and CASM can be used instead.

By default, Skyrim keeps the 3 most recent autosaves and the 1 most recent quicksave, as well as allowing you to make manual saves via the menu. CASM keeps a configurable number of saves (5 by default) which can be created automatically and manually, and allows you to quickly load the most recent of these via a hotkey.

The name of the save created will be the name of your character, followed by a number. This means you can keep separate sets of CASM saves for separate characters without them overriding one another, so long as these characters do not have the same name.

=======
INSTALL
=======
Copy CASM.bsa and CASM.esp into your Data folder and enable CASM.esp. If you install through a mod manager such as the Nexus Mod Manager, this should all be done for you automatically.

=========
UNINSTALL
=========
To uninstall this mod, disable CASM.esp. CASM.bsa and CASM.esp may then be removed. If you installed CASM through a mod manager such as the Nexus Mod Manager, this should all be done for you automatically.

============
REQUIREMENTS
============
CASM requires SKSE and SkyUI. They can be downloaded here:

SKSE: http://skse.silverlock.org/
SkyUI: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/3863/

SKSE is required for creating and loading named saves via script, and for SkyUI.
SkyUI is required so CASM can be configured in a Mod Configuration Menu.

=============
CONFIGURATION
=============
CASM can be configured via an in-game menu courtesy of SkyUI's MCM (Mod Configuration Menu). The following options are available:

Automatic Save Options:

Enable Autosaves
Default: On
When checked, CASM will save automatically

Autosave Frequency
Default: 5 minutes
The frequency with which CASM will save automatically. (1-30 minutes)

Use Real Autosaves
Default: Off
When checked, CASM will use normal autosaves instead of creating a CASM save. Use this option if you want the configurable autosaving but find the slight pause caused by creating a full save too jarring. Automatic saves created in this way will not count toward the total number of saves maintained by CASM, and cannot be loaded via CASM's quickload hotkey.

Save In Combat
Default: Off
If this option is not checked, CASM will not save automatically while you are in combat.

Save While Sneaking
Default: On
If this option is not checked, CASM will not save automatically while you are sneaking.


Manual Save Options:

Enable Quicksave Key
Default: On
When enabled, allows you to manually save via a hotkey.

Quicksave Key
Default: F4
The key that can be used to create a manual save with CASM.

Enable Quickload Key
Default: On
When enabled, allows you to manually load your most recent CASM save via a hotkey.

Quickload Key
Default: F8
The key that can be used to manually load your most recent CASM save.


General Options:

Number of Saves
Default: 5
The number of saves CASM will cycle through. (1-20)
