This is a simple mod that adds a spell that transforms corpses and their carried items into a bag of gold for you to collect, allowing you to clean up all the corpses littering the place while also turning a profit!  The amount of gold you get is based on the level of the creature, along with its health, magicka, or stamina (whichever is highest).  This is further modified by your alteration skill level.  Dragon corpses get turned into 5x as much gold!

Additionally, the spawned gold bags are scaled according to the amount of gold that they contain.  If the bag only contains a small number of coins, it will be rather small.  On the other hand, if the bag contains thousands of coins, it will be huge!  And, if the corpse would only turn into a single coin, it skips the bag and just produces that coin.

The tome that teaches this spell can be found on a table in Anise's cabin, southwest of Riverwood.  Alongside it is a tome that teaches a lesser power version of the spell, allowing you to use it hands-free.

This mod uses two scripts, but they won't lag your game because they only run on demand.

Two global variables were added in version 1.1 (and two more in 1.4) to change how the gold quantity is calculated.
  • CCoinHealthMult, which determines how much health affects the gold earned.  By default, it is set to 0.05.  To change it, enter the following command on the console:   set CCoinHealthMult to X,  and replace the X with the multiplier desired (a value between 0.0 and 1.0)
  • CCoinMagickaMult, which is the same as above, except for magicka
  • CCoinStaminaMult, same, but for stamina
  • CCoinIncludeItems, which determines whether or not the value of the corpse's inventory will be used to calculate the amount of gold.  By default, this is set to 1.  If set to 0, then the corpse's inventory will not be included, with the exception of any septims on the corpse's inventory.

Caveats:
1) Only works on corpses.  It won't work on other types of remains, such as ash piles.
2) Does not work on corpses if the actor is flagged as essential.
3) There is no way for papyrus scripts to detect quest items, so if you cast the spell on a corpse which carries a quest item, you will lose it and will have to reload your save!

Known Bugs:
1) There is an issue where the gold bag seemingly fails to appear, though it is actually invisible.  Once this happens, all future bags will fail to appear until you shutdown skyrim and start it back up again.  The issue has apparently stopped for me after I disabled Skyrim's built-in vsync (which is buggy and laggy), and instead set vsync in the nvidia control panel.
2) One user has reported that they get a CTD when casting the spell on dragon corpses.
