The Headstart Modded Save Collection!!!
The Headstart Collection is an assortment of 18 modded Skyrim saves designed to give players varying levels of starting bonuses, depending on how much of a headstart they actually want. Tired of collecting alchemy ingredients? Start with them all. Annoyed with hunting down the various enchantments? Start with samples in your inventory. Want lots of money? You've got it. All these saves are pre-CC so you are free to play however you wish.
The bundle contains instructions on how to use the saves as well as a more detailed explanation of what each save contains. Below is a summary.
All saves are in three different folders with variations in NPC Essential tags. The Less Essentials folder has most Essential tags removed. The More Essentials folder has a few select NPCs, mainly followers, made Essential so they cannot die. The Normal Essentials folder has all the Essential tags left untouched.
All saves start you off with all spells and all shouts. You’ll have 100 Dragon Souls available to unlock them with.
All saves start you off with a ring equipped that boosts Alchemy by 900% and a necklace that boosts Enchanting by 900%. These items are glitched at first. Check the enclosed document for how to use them.
Some saves are labeled as “Boosted”. These saves have the following bonuses: -Unarmed damage +50 points -Shout cooldowns reduced by 80% -Destruction magic power doubled -Illusion magic power doubled -Conjuration magic duration doubled -Alteration magic duration doubled
All saves have additional marriage candidates. Get an Amulet of Mara and you may be surprised at who responds to it now. And before you ask the answer is no, Serana cannot be married.
Followers have been overhauled and a few new ones have been added. Check the enclosed document for details.
