About this mod

A potion that has compound effects and is easy to use and replenish.
Converted to ESPFE

Permissions and credits
Sorry, my english is not good.I hope everyone can understand what I am expressing.

There are many problems with vanilla alchemy, such as highly repetitive effects, confusing names, and only a 1% difference in effect, which is equivalent to another potion.
These problems are not only dazzling, but also make players spend too much time on the UI,and after learning a few spells, those effects more special potions have become superfluous.
Alcohol also has very low use value. Even for MODs like "INeed", water is still much easier to use than alcohol.

So I created this.
I call it decoction.
This is to distinguish it from the potion of vanilla.
I think this mod should be compatible with "Toxicity" or "Chasing The Dragon" to avoid these powerful decoctions from turning the player into Kratos.
All decoctions are made using cooking pots.

This MOD has the following characteristics.
1.Most of the decoctions are condensed into the same bottle of decoctions from multiple similar effects, so there is no need to drink dozens of gallons of potions during battle.

2.There are several single-effect decoctions, but they are extremely powerful or only come in handy in special circumstances.

3.The alchemy upgrade system similar to the Witcher 3 can enhance the efficacy of the decoction. The levels are Basic, Enhanced and Superior.

4.Decoction will produce residue after use, just find the cooking pot and fill the designated alcohol to make the decoction become usable again.
Because Dunmer alcohol is more special and difficult to obtain, Dunmer's alcoholic beverages can be made into a universal solvent and used to fill all the decoctions.

5.Basic decoctions are also divided into basic, advanced, and higher levels. The more powerful the decoction, the more difficult it will be to obtain the materials required for the preparation.

6.The unique name makes you less likely to be confused after getting used to it

7.Used the drinking sound of The Witcher 3 and use the blur effect of night vision to simulate the blur of the picture when the Witcher 3 is drinking

8.Use a separately made effect, so no vanilla content will be modified

9.Use only simple scripts

10.You can find three recipe books for decoctions in Cellar in Anise's Cabin, but you don’t need these books to make decoctions.

This is the first time I have created a MOD, please feel free to let me know if there are any flaws

Future plan
So far this is the whole content of "Decoction in Skyrim". Unless someone reports a BUG so that this MOD must be fixed, I must devote all my energy to another project-Witcher Oil
After the completion of "Witcher Oil", I will start to make "Skyrim Spirits Extension" to add more interesting content, and combine "Decoction in Skyrim", "Witcher Oil" and "Skyrim Spirits Extension" together.Will eventually replace the entire vanilla alchemy system.

The most important thing is my partner Xing, without his assistance, then this MOD is unlikely to appear.
His excellent work on Skyrim always makes my jaw fall to my feet, and he is a Takodachi too.
This is his Twitter.
The reason for not following him? That doesn't exist.
