What is this mod?

Unleveled Items is a simple, highly compatible mod that fixes the problem of the player receiving inferior versions of various unique items based on the player's level. So now, regardless of the player's level, you will always receive the highest-level version of the various "leveled" unique items you get as rewards for some quests or find in various locations. Furthermore, unlike other similar mods that I felt were insufficient or otherwise incomplete in addressing the overall problem of leveled items, this mod covers all of the leveled items. E.g., it also includes things like Tsun's Battle Axe and the various Lunar Iron and Lunar Steel weapons.

As I mentioned above, this mod is designed with compatibility in mind so the primary changes it makes are to the 'leveled lists' that the game uses to determine which version of an item to select. Not only does that allow for this mod to be installed and uninstalled at will with no side effects, it also allows this mod to be fully compatible with other mods such as the Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch which makes important bug fixes to some of the leveled items. This mod also has an alternate "Repair" version that adds concealed recipes to the smelter that will allow you to retroactively upgrade any lower-level versions of leveled items that you have already obtained before using this mod.

All of the leveled items in the main game now fixed by this mod:
  • Chillrend
  • Dragonbane
  • Gauldur Blackblade & Gauldur Blackbow
  • All Lunar Iron and Lunar Steel weapons (Mace / Sword / War Axe)
  • All Nightingale items (Blade / Bow / Hood / Armor / Gloves / Boots)
  • The Pale Blade
  • Tsun's Battle Axe
  • Shield of Solitude
  • Amulet of Articulation
  • Mage's Circlet

All of the leveled items in the Dragonborn DLC now fixed by this mod:
  • Miraak's Sword
  • Miraak's Staff
  • Miraak (miraak's mask, heavy armor version)
  • Miraak (miraak's mask, light armor version)
  • Miraak's Robes

Other leveled items fixes included in this mod:
  • The Keepers in the Soul Cairn will now drop the dragonbone weapon rewards when killed regardless of your level instead of being limited to level 45+.

If I have somehow missed any other leveled items in the game (I researched and didn't find any others, though) then please let me know and I'll get them fixed as well.

Which version to use:

There are two versions of the mod and which one you use depends on the following:
  • If you are starting a new playthrough, use the Main version.
  • If you have already started a playthrough then use the Repair version.

The Repair version contains extra data (smelter recipes) necessary to swap lower versions of leveled items spawned/acquired prior to installing the mod, extra data that is not needed for a new playthrough. If you do use the Repair version I highly suggest also downloading the Main version so that once your playthrough with the Repair version is done you can delete that version and switch to using the Main version only.

Installation / Uninstallation:

Use a mod manager, such as Mod Organizer 2.
