About this mod

After breaking a lock-pick, the new lock-pick is placed at the same angle where the last one broke.

Permissions and credits
Author's note: this is an update to OnlyIWeDo's Remember Lockpick Angle with support for newer Skyrim SE versions. That file's permissions read, "Anyone is free to redistribute this mod and/or host it on other sites." If the original author would like to assume control of the latest version, they should message me, and I will take this mod down.
Source code available on my Github.

The Problem

When you break a lock-pick in vanilla, the new lock-pick will be placed at the default angle which can make finding your last attempt pretty difficult, especially on higher difficulty locks and if you don't use a better interface texture to help gauge the angle.

The Solution

Now when you break a pick, the new one will be placed at the same angle as the last one when it broke. This removes the tedium of finding the position of the last attempt.


MO2/Nexus/Vortex: Install like any other mod
Manual: Pop it into your Skyrim SE Data folder


If you would like your player's amnesia treatments to be postponed until after they've gained a perk, you now can!
Edit SKSE\Plugins\RememberLockpick.ini.
By default, it will look something like this:

requiredPerk = 0
modName = NONE

To make it require the Novice Locks perk from vanilla, you would edit it to look like this:

requiredPerk = F392A
modName = Skyrim.esm

modName should be the file corresponding to the first 2 (or 5 for ESL) digits of the address - so if it is injected into Update.esm (01) you would use Update.esm, or if it is an override of a vanilla perk (00) you would use Skyrim.esm.
requiredPerk is the relative address of the PERK entry - everything in the address other than the mod index.
ESL mod indices will be detected automatically, only add the relative address (last 3 digits).

Any detected errors will be output to My Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE\RememberLockpickAngle.log, and you will be able to see there if it has found your perk successfully.


Compatible with everything.
