This mod brings multiple jumping to new heights, featuring  immersive sounds, effects, animations, special moves and a highly customizable MCM. Imagine the fluid and dynamic jumping of Ori and the Blind Forest, now in Skyrim. Some mods have attempted to enhance jumping before, but none have got it just the way I wanted.

The Dragonborn's study of alteration will allow him/her to harness that knowledge into spells and artifacts of amazing power. By smithing a magic jump ring or casting powerful jumping spells, the Dragonborn can defy physics and leap with unparalleled ability. With that power, the Dragonborn can execute a series of up to three jumps, from either a standing position, while running or sprinting. Each jump features its own animation, sounds, visuals and additional magical effects. The mod also features a detailed MCM, with a plethora of customization options for audio, visuals and gameplay.

As the player, you have the choice. As your character progresses in alteration, you may try to forge magical jump rings at any forge. There are three tiers of rings. Each tier requires a different minimum alteration skill of adept or higher. 

Alternatively, you may choose to master multiple tiers of magical jumping spells. There are four spell books, each for a different tier (apprentice, adept, expert and master). Each tier has a different alteration skill requirement. Expert and master level tiers provide additional benefits, described below. The books may be purchased from:

Finally, the MCM features a lore friendly toggle. Disabling the toggle places the game into a cheat mode, granting the player persistent master-level power, and the ability to jump and perform special moves at will.

Gameplay Mechanics

- The spells implement a progression function. Be careful not to cast spells your Dragonborn isn't prepared for. Expect the apprentice and adept level spells to have limited utility compared to the expert and master level spells.

- The master and expert level spells add i-frames to the jumps

- The master level spell (and the non-lore/cheat mode) grants access to three special moves.

- The first special move is an air attack. Hold your set hotkey and then execute the second or third jump. Boom! The projectile covers a small cone, but travels over a long distance. The magnitude tapers exponentially over distance.

- The second special move is a slam attack. Hold your set hotkey after jumping one, two or three times. The Dragonborn will slam to the ground and release a shock wave over a wide arc. The player may combo the air attack into the slam.

- The third special move is an air dash. Press your set hotkey after jumping one, two or three times. The Dragonborn will zoom off in the direction the player (not the camera) is facing. The dash is affected by forward momentum. The player may perform a second or third jump after the dash.

- Holding your set hotkey will charge a super jump, allowing the player to dash to great heights.

- The MCM now includes an optional hold-to-sprint function. This feature now works with gamepad!

- If you change direction with each jump, you will receive a small boost of speed in the new direction.

- Magical Jumping now supports first person with the Magical Jumping - First Person Addon.

- Magical Jumping now supports Jumping Attack with the Magical Jumping - Jumping Attack Addon.


- The mod features a detailed MCM that allows the player to adjust audio, visuals, jump parameters, magicka parameters, gameplay parameters and compatibility:

    [/list]- Enable/disable certain audio effects. All audio effects are keyed to the magic volume slider.

    - Enable/disable certain visual effects. The player may choose between the classic Magical Jumping air explosion visual effect or a new platform visual effect inspired by Devil May Cry. The player may also choose to enable/disable an additional air dash explosion effect that is inspired by the vanilla Whirlwind sprint shout. Note, some visual effects will not change until after a magic effect is reapplied. This can be done manually by toggling the lore-friendly mode off/on.

    - Adjust base jump height and jump height multipliers.

    - Choose among three dash lengths.

    - Set the amount of magicka and stamina required per jump or per special move. The user may also set minimum thresholds required to jump. Only one threshold will be checked, either magicka or threshold.

    - Adjust the max magnitude of the special moves, toggle soft landing, toggle lore-friendly/cheat mode and adjust gravity.

    - Choose to equip the rings in slot 36, by default, or to select a different slot for compatibility.

    - Hotkeys used for special moves may be set through the MCM (requires Papyrus INI Manipulator) or manually remapped in the MagicalJumping.ini located in [Skyrim game folder]\data\SKSE\Plugins\dtryKeyUtil\config\custom. Please visit the Creation Kit guide for the decimal codes used for each key.

    - Toggle an optional hold-to-sprint function.

    - Any features that are undesired may be disabled through the MCM, or disabled by unbinding the hotkeys.

    - The player can now reset the mod's variables through the MCM in case any feature breaks or if the character becomes stuck (e.g., zero gravity).

    - Dash failsafe: the air dash now has two failsafe options. The first is a height check that prevents dashing when near the ground. This option may introduce latency in dash execution, but reliably prevents the dash speed glitch. The second is a distance failsafe that prevents the user from dashing too far if the dash triggers when coming into contact with the ground. Use of only one option is recommended.


    - Magical Jumping - Smooth Random Jump addon

    - Magical Jumping - Jumping Attack addon

    - Magical Jumping - First Person addon


    - Please enjoy these videos showcasing the features of Magical Jumping.


    - Install all requirements and their requirements, if any. If this is your first time installing Payload Interpreter, make sure to run Nemesis, and check the Payload Interpreter patch--there is no patch for Magical Jumping itself.

    - Updated requirements for v2.6:
    - DAR no longer supported.
    - Behavior Data Injector is now required to support changing direction between succesive jumps. Currently direction change only works for master level and non-lore Magical Jumping effects. I will soon release a small update adding direction change for all Magical Jumping effects.

    - If updating from v2.4, make sure to set your hotkeys again through the MCM.

    - Updating from previous versions to 2.6 should be safe. However, I always recommend rolling back to an earlier save or performing a clean save process because there may have been some shift in formIDs. To clean save, (1) go into a quiet interior cell with minimal scripting, preferably no NPCs. Make sure you aren't wearing any Magic Jump Rings, don't have an active Magical Jumping spell and that you re-enable lore-friendly mode (if applicable). (2) Save and exit. (3) Uninstall Magical Jumping. (4) Reload the game and then make a new save. (5) Clean the new save using Resaver, removing undefined references and unattached instances. (6) Install Magical Jumping 2.4. (7) Launch the game and configure the mod as desired.


    - This mod is compatible with Ordinator and Vokriinator Black. It conflicts with Vokrii and Adamant, but I have made a patch available. Let me know in the comments if you have another perk overhaul that is incompatible.

      - This mod conflicts with Jumping Attack (while weapons are drawn) and Combat Gameplay Overhaul (any version with an air attack). The problem is currently not fixable on my end. If using CGO, try Distar's CGO Lite. Alternatively, try Magical Jumping - Jumping Attack addon.

      - This mod is confirmed to work with Paragliding and Skydiving. You will have to rebind the keys used with either Magical Jumping or Skydiving.

      - It is possible that the spell books may not show up in the vendor's list if you have another mod loaded after this mod that also edits the vendor's chest. The only mod conflict I'm aware of is Flying Mod Overhaul. The vendor in question is

      Known Issues

      - Air dashing point blank into an inclined surface may cause the wrong landing animation to play. Simply jump again to cancel the animation.

      - Air dashing near the ground may cause the dash to accelerate the player to great speed. The MCM now has two failsafes to handle that situation. The first failsafe performs a height check prior to dashing. This method may introduce latency due to Papyrus delays. The second failsafe adds an invisible backstop to catch the player. Use of only one failsafe is recommended.

      - Use of motion control mods like Skyrim Motion Control (SMC) can interfere with the slam attack. The MCM includes an option to prevent the conflict. However, the compatibility option will prevent the slam from working while holding the forward movement key ('W').

        - By default, the air dash uses the left ALT button, which is also used for sprinting by default. If you spam the dash/sprint button (or if you use Classic Sprinting Redone and hold the dash/sprint button) while holding forward ('W') after jumping a bug may occur that greatly accelerates the player. It's quite humorous, but definitely annoying. The error happens because of a strange interaction between the sprint behavior graph and AMR. It can be avoided by either a) not spamming the button or b) mapping dash and sprint to different buttons. You may also try using the hold-to-sprint feature included in v2.4+.

        - Some of the special moves temporarily adjust gravity and player mobility. I have taken great caution to ensure that the scripts retire safely and that duplicate scripts are not fired together. Still, it is possible in very rare circumstances for my safeguards to fail and for the scripts to get out of sync. In those cases, the player may float in the air, or the player may get stuck. In either case, open the Magical Jumping MCM and reset the player through the troubleshooting page.

        Plans for Magical Jumping

          - Add a lore-friendly quest to learn about Magical Jumping, forge a ring, learn spells, etc.

          - Create puzzle platform locations that require the magical jumping mechanic.
