I know there are perks to make it so merchants will buy stolen goods but playing today I realized the just how unimmersive and stupid stolen items are. I mean, I have noticed it before but my example today just hit me in the face like a brick. I found a shack in the middle of nowhere and inside the house was a corpse. I looted the chest I found and for some reason I was stealing the items...wtf? OF course now too, all the vendors in Skyrim know I stole items from that corpse and won't touch my "hot" items.
Is there a way or mod to just completely take stolen items out of the game (the tag I mean really).
There is a mod of part of a mod that makes it so that situation doesn't happen I thought. I don't think I have it but it may have been in pyro's list, or in the description of a mod I read. Basically makes dead NPCs/factions goods no longer flagged stolen.
I know this is no help but I really don't remember where I saw that
