Disarming Traps Is Dangerous:


While disarming a trap by lockpicking it, breaking your lockpick may trigger the trap.
The chance of trigger depends on the lock level and your lockpicking perks.
For examples:
- No perk, master lock: 100% chance to trigger.
- Master perk, master lock, 50% chance to trigger.
- Master perk, novice lock, 10% chance to trigger.

Requirements & (Un)Installation:

You need Skyrim Special Edition V1.5.39 or above.
You need the Skyrim Script Extender SE build V2.0.7 or above installed (SKSE64).
Choose either the esp or the esl version.
Installation as usual. Install with your favorite mod manager or manually in the data folder.
You can uninstall simply by removing the mod files.

Compatibility & Load Order:

This mod does not edit any vanilla record or script and should be compatible with everything.


The formula for the chance to trigger the trap when breaking a lockpick is:
50% + 10% perk lock level (novice = 1, master = 5) -10% per handled perk unlocked.
The perks handled by the mod are the one in the formlist "DTD_LockpickingPerksFormList". By default it contains the five main Lockpicking perks ("Novice Locks" to "Master Locks"). You can modify it to include other perks if you have a mod that alters Lockpicking perks.

The lockpicking menu is supposed to close automatically if you trigger the trap.
This feature may not work if you use a gamepad.
If you encounter this bug, please leave a comment (either in the posts or bugs tab) specifying what type of gamepad you are using.

Because traps can also be disarmed by purposefully activating them (like shooting them from a distance), I recommend you also install Improved Traps. With it, traps make noise when triggered so there is still an incentive to try to disarm them by lockpicking.
