Phenderix Skyrim In-Game Editor ("SIGE") allows the user to make edits to weapons, armors, spells, weather, NPCs, and even the player in-game. Normally to make these changes, one would have to use a set of console commands or use the Creation Kit to make a patch or new mod. This is no longer the case, you can make edits to content in-game without ever leaving your Skyrim instance.

This mod requires SKSE - without it, not all features of SIGE will work as intended.
This mod also requires JContainers - without it, you will not be able to permanently save your edits for weapons, armor, or spells.


Upon starting the game, the player will automatically have the following spells added to their spells list:
  • SIGE - Edit Weapon
  • SIGE - Edit Armor
  • SIGE - Edit Spell
  • SIGE - Edit NPC
  • SIGE - Edit Player
  • SIGE - Edit Weather
I recommend adding these spells to your favorites for quick access! 


SIGE allows you to make changes to all weapons! (those added in vanilla Skyrim and its DLC as well as those added by mods)

View and edit the following weapon stats/attributes! 
  • Damage (how much damage does this weapon cause a target)
  • Speed (how fast does the weapon swing)
  • Reach (how far out does the weapon reach when you swing it)
  • Critical Damage (how much additional damage this weapon does upon a crit occurring)
  • Weight (how much will this item weigh in a character's inventory)
  • Gold Value (how much is the sell value for this item - the actual amount will vary based on vendor and perks)

Manipulate and apply enchantments to weapons!
  • Fire Damage
  • Frost Damage
  • Shock Damage
  • Soul Absorb
  • Remove Enchantment

You can also duplicate any equipped weapon! (feature implemented in v.1.1.0)

As an example of the functionality, If you edit an Iron Sword, the edits you make will be for all Iron Swords in the game - not just yours.


By default, the edits to weapons are temporary and will persist until you close out of Skyrim. 

(PERMANENT WEAPON EDIT SAVING OPTION HAS BEEN ADDED)
If you would like the changes to a weapon to be permanent. You must select the "Permanently Save" option in the Edit Stats menu. This will make SIGE save all the weapon's adjusted stats to a txt file. Upon reloading your Skyrim game, SIGE will load that text file and adjust the stats for the saved edited weapon.

There are two options for saving:
Option 1 - Permanently save weapon edit for only this playthrough. (edits will apply only to this specific player character's world/playthrough)
Option 2 - Permanently save weapon edit for all playthroughs. (edits will apply to all player character's worlds/playthroughs)
Important Note about Option 1: Let's say that "Player Character 1" has specific edits under Option 1 to "Iron Sword". If you switch to "Player Character 2" without closing out the Skyrim game first, "Player Character 2" will still have the edited "Iron Sword" stats. This is a game limitation and here's the fix for making this not happen - If switching from playing one character to playing another character, with each character having separate character-specific edits to weapons/armors/spells, it is recommended to close out the Skyrim game and then relaunch to prevent any issues like this from occurring.

You can permanently save edits for up to 128 weapons. Please use this function sparingly as permanently saving many weapon edits could cause the SIGE system to run slower and be less efficient.

If you change the name of your character, you will lose all character-specific permanently saved weapon edits under Option 1. If you rename your character, you will have to edit your weapons again by using the "Permanently Save" option in the Edit Stats menu.



SIGE allows you to make changes to all armors! (those added in vanilla Skyrim and its DLC as well as those added by mods)

View and edit the following armor, clothing, and jewelry stats/attributes! 
  • Armor Rating (how much armor this item provides)
  • Weight Class (is the armor/clothing piece light, heavy, or neither)
  • Weight (how much will this item weigh in a character's inventory)
  • Gold Value (how much is the sell value for this item - the actual amount will vary based on vendor and perks)

You can also duplicate any equipped armor/clothing piece! (feature implemented in v.1.1.0)

One neat feature is that using SIGE you can classify jewelry (amulets, necklaces, rings) as light armor or heavy armor. (by default they are neither)

As an example of the functionality, If you edit an Iron Shield, the edits you make will be for all Iron Shields in the game - not just yours.


By default, the edits to armors are temporary and will persist until you close out of Skyrim. 

(PERMANENT ARMOR EDIT SAVING OPTION HAS BEEN ADDED)
If you would like the changes to an armor to be permanent. You must select the "Permanently Save" option in the Edit Stats menu. This will make SIGE save all the armor's adjusted stats to a txt file. Upon reloading your Skyrim game, SIGE will load that text file and adjust the stats for the saved edited armor.

There are two options for saving:
Option 1 - Permanently save armor edit for only this playthrough. (edits will apply only to this specific player character's world/playthrough)
Option 2 - Permanently save armor edit for all playthroughs. (edits will apply to all player character's worlds/playthroughs)
Important Note about Option 1: Let's say that "Player Character 1" has specific edits under Option 1 to "Iron Shield". If you switch to "Player Character 2" without closing out the Skyrim game first, "Player Character 2" will still have the edited "Iron Shield" stats. This is a game limitation and here's the fix for making this not happen - If switching from playing one character to playing another character, with each character having separate character-specific edits to weapons/armors/spells, it is recommended to close out the Skyrim game and then relaunch to prevent any issues like this from occurring.

You can permanently save edits for up to 128 armors. Please use this function sparingly as permanently saving many armor edits could cause the SIGE system to run slower and be less efficient. 

If you change the name of your character, you will lose all character-specific permanently saved armor edits under Option 1. If you rename your character, you will have to edit your armors again by using the "Permanently Save" option in the Edit Stats menu.



SIGE allows you to make changes to all spells! (those added in vanilla Skyrim and its DLC as well as those added by mods)

View and edit a spell's stats and magic effects! 
  • Magnitude (damage, healing amount, etc. - this depends on the spell type)
  • Duration (how long the magic effect lasts)
  • Area (does this effect get applied to an area? If so, this is how large of an area.)

By using SIGE, you will be able to see all of the magic effects utilized by a spell and then you will be able to manipulate each of these effects.

Additionally, the Player can remove spells from their spells list by utilizing the "unlearn" function of the SIGE spell edit menu. (feature implemented in v.1.7.0)

You can also dispel active spells and effects from the player or NPC. This means you can do things like end a cloak spell sooner or quickly end certain hostile magic that has a long duration. (feature implemented in v.2.3.0)

By default, the edits to spells are temporary and will persist until you close out of Skyrim.

Option 2 - Permanently save spell edit for all playthroughs. (edits will apply to all player character's worlds/playthroughs)
Important Note about Option 1: Let's say that "Player Character 1" has specific edits under Option 1 to "Flames". If you switch to "Player Character 2" without closing out the Skyrim game first, "Player Character 2" will still have the edited "Flames" stats. This is a game limitation and here's the fix for making this not happen - If switching from playing one character to playing another character, with each character having separate character-specific edits to weapons/armors/spells, it is recommended to close out the Skyrim game and then relaunch to prevent any issues like this from occurring.
