Compatibility Patch(s):
1. Better Spell Learning (scientic) has been patched to work with the spells in Synthesis Redux v1.4 with this compatibility patch (ropya)

Installation: This mod includes an ESP file, several PEX Script files, Several NIF Mesh Files, and Several DDS Texture Files. You can install them manually, as its pretty common sense, and shouldn't override any other files utilized by the game. My mod has been cleaned via SSEdit to ensure maximum stability, that said as I'm sure you're aware the game will occasionally crash regardless so use multiple saves to be safe. You can should you choose not to install manually use a Mod Manager of your choice to install the files (just be sure that they actually install the scripts/mesh/textures when they say they do). Always and this is common sense, which I realize isn't that common, run LOOT or another mod organizer to sort your load order.

How to obtain items/spells/potions: Synthesis Redux includes a custom vendor named Omniculius who is located in the Bannered Mare in Whiterun. She will sell the player any and all of my modified items, spells, and weapons. Please note that when you visit her, she may not have a particular item in stock at the time, but if you visit again another time (or save, and reload to reset her inventory) she will likely have more and exciting new items and spells for you to buy and subsequently try.

Thanks, and like I said this is definitely a work in progress and a little hobby for me. If you like it cool, if not let me know what you don't like about it as I said a lot of the stuff isn't polished yet and I'm still fine tuning for balance. That all said, even though I owe plenty in student loans, I don't want any donations or payments regarding my work. Additionally, I maintain intellectual property copyrights over the work contained therein any similarities to any work protected by another is unintentional nor malicious in nature, as are any similarities to any past, present, or future people, place, events, or things, or any other pronoun you can think of. If you're a modder and wondering how I did something feel free to ask, I like to learn as much as I can to add additional features and functionality, so I'm always willing to help share my small pool of knowledge, however I do have a life outside of playing video games so it might take me a while to respond, but unless the good lord sees fits to take me, I'll get back to you eventually.

Special thanks go out to the countless modders over the years that have helped me figure out various papyrus issues, the occasional drunken tutorial on nif and dds editing, and a lot of inspiration for attempting to figure out how some of you did some of the great things you've done to this game, and I suppose Bethesda as well, because without Morrowind and the original Construction Kit a lot of us older fossils wouldn't be here.a lot of us older fossils wouldn't be here.
