Pack:Deleveled Loot

From STEP Modding Wiki

Deleveled Lootby dreadflopp
Deleveled Loot
The purpose of this pack is to delevel Skyrims loot system and rebalance Skyrims economy. By using this pack only basic common gear will be found. High level loot will only be found in special places. The amount of gold you will find and be rewarded from quests will be reduced.
Compatible Packs: Pack:Deleveled Loot, Pack:Dovahkiin Reborn, Pack:Skyrim Gameplay Rebalance, Pack:Survival, Pack:Weather and Lighting
Warning-Logo.png      Warning:This pack is no longer updated. I am currently only supporting my packs for Skyrim Special Edition. I will still answer questions about the pack, if you have any.

Deleveled Loot

What to expect from the pack:

The purpose of this pack is to rebalance Skyrims economy and make high level loot rarer. In vanilla it is too easy to get rich and high level loot is too common.

  • Morrowloot removes all random high level loot (dwemer+) and handplaces them in different, logical places. Ebony is very rare. Only one set of daedric armor remains in Skyrim and it is spread out. Morrowloot also adds artifacts from previous games.
  • Several mods help to make loot rarer and reduce your income.
  • A couple of popular armor and weapon mods are included since they need to be patched or have some special settings to be compatible with morrowloot.

Pre-Installation Setup


Info-Logo.png      Notice:This pack is fully compatible with STEP: Core and STEP: Extended. ELE and ICAIO are requirements.
Warning-Logo.png      Warning:Remove all leveled lists that are installed with Weapons and armor fixes. To do this, simply delete Weapons & Armor_TrueWeaponsLvlLists.esp that was installed with Weapons and armor fixes.

Other packs

If you use more than this one pack, you need to build your own patch using my my modular patches.

Semi-compatible and semi-unsupported packs

A real explorers guide to Skyrim (REGS)

Pack:Explorers Guide
REGS has been taken over by Kelmych who will bring it up to date and make it compatible with the latest STEP. It is probably compatible with this pack.

Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition
Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition is more of a replacement for STEP than a pack. SR:LE is not supported but most of SR:LE is still compatible with this and my other packs. Use my my modular patches and read the special instructions for SR:LE.

Not compatible packs

SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn

SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn is an addon or a pack for SRLE by Darth_mathias. It is an excellent pack that adds many mods on top of SRLE in many different areas, some areas where I haven't added any mods in my packs like quest mods or companion mods. It also adds mods that alters the looks of NPCs, it expands towns, it adds new items and retextures many aspects of the game. SRLE adds mods in all areas that I do in my packs and many of the mods that are in my packs are also in SRLE or SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn. If you want to add the mods that are in SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn but not in my packs, my recommendation is to skip my packs and use SRLE Extended instead. Darth_Mattias provides a patch for Morrowloot Unlimited and with that added you won't miss out on anything essential by using SRLE Extended: Legacy of The Dragonborn instead of my packs.

Install Order

You should follow the install order outlined in STEP. Install the pack after your STEP install. It may be considered good modding practice to install the pack before the STEP section 2.N. Patches, but currently it doesn't matter since none of the mods from my pack conflict with any mods from the patches section of STEP..

The mods from my pack should be installed as outlined on their pages.

Mods from the pack or STEP that overlap should usually remain in their position laid out in STEP. It may be useful to re-install these mods as a new mod if changes are made to the installation of said mod, with a name fit to the profile. This preserves easy switching between Profiles in MO.

If you are unsure, check the 'conflicts' tab in MO for the mod in question and see what is overwriting it / what it is overwriting. Ask questions on the forums if you are still unsure.

If you install more than one pack, check here: my modular patches.


Deleveled scarcer loot

A Harsher Skyrim
Gold adjustment

Description: Gold adjustment limits your income by adjusting gold, gems, lockpicks and soul gems acquired from chests and gold from coin purses and quest rewards.
Author: kuertee
Main file: None
Optionals: kuGA merged with MCM 0p8

Info-Logo.png      Notice:This mod is optional

This mod helps balance the game but it is a little immersion breaking since gold gets removed when you pick it up through scripts.

Immersive Armors 8 patch

Description: This patch is an update to the official Morrowloot Ultimate - Immersive Armors patch. The MLU - Immersive Armors patch is still needed.
Author: FlyingFox
Special Instructions: Immersive armors is installed later in the guide. This mod should be included in the merge of the other MLU (Morrowloot Ultimate) patches below. Make sure it is sorted after the MLU - Immersive Armors patch included in the official MLU mod.

MUS - Morrowloot Ultimate Simplified

Description: Removes high level loot from the world and overhauls many aspects of gameplay
Author: Asator
Main files: MUS - Morrowloot Ultimate Simplified
Optionals: None.
Miscellaneous: MUS - Lore Weapon Expansion 1.4a (if you use Lore Weapon Expansion)
Special instructions: Install the patch, MUS - Lore Weapon Expansion 1.4a, as its own mod. This will make it easier to merge it with the patches from MLU below.

Morrowloot Ultimate

Description: We will only use the compatibility patches from MLU.
Author: ChocolateNoodle
Main files: None.
Optionals: Special instructions: Install all relevant patches except patches for Audio overhaul Skyrim, Skyrim Immersive Creatures, CACO/CACO-Ordinatored, Ordinator or Unique Uniques. Those patches are already included in my patch, if they are needed. Do not install the patch for Lore Weapon Expansion since we use the LWE patch from MUS above. Install the patches as their own mod called MUS patches. Merge all patch plugins from MLU - Immersive Armors 8 patch, MUS and MLU following these instructions.

  • Sort all patches alphabetically.
  • Name the merged plugin MUS patches merged.esp.
  • Name the new mod MUS patches merged.
  • For the patches of MUS to function properly, delete or hide the leveled list files of Weapons and armor fixes remade:
Open Mod Organizer
Double click Weapons and armor fixes remade in the mod list
Click on the Optional ESPs tab
Select Weapons & Armor_TrueWeaponsLvlList.esp and click on the up arrow to move it to optional ESPs
Perseids Inns and Taverns - Realistic Room Rental Enhanced

Description: Modifies costs for room rental. Modifies inns and taverns aesthetically
Author: perseid9
Main files: RealisticRoomRental-Basic Optionals: None.
Special Instructions: Install the basic version if you do not want to modify inns and taverns aesthetically. The pre-made patch at the end of the guide is for the basic version of RRR. If you install the enhanced version, you need to merge your own patch.

  • Reinstall Immersive Citizens and install the RRR patch if you use the enhanced version.
  • If you use the enhanced version with Relighting Skyrim you will experience some flickering lights in inns. This is solved by deleting all entries for inns in the Relighting Skyrim plugin. This reverts the lighting in inns to vanilla with modifications by RRR.

Open RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp in TES5Edit and delete all records and subrecords that edits inns. These records are listed below:

	Block 1
		Sub-Block 1
		Sub-Block 3			
		Sub-Block 4
		Sub-Block 5
	Block 2
		Sub-Block 6
		Sub-Block 9
	Block 4
		Sub-Block 8
	Block 5
		Sub-Block 3
	Block 6
		Sub-Block 0
		Sub-Block 5
		Sub-Block 7
		Sub-Block 8
	Block 7
		Sub-Block 7
	Block 8
		Sub-Block 0
		Sub-Block 7

Example: In RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp, navigate to Cell/Block 1/Sub-Block 1 and right click 00013A7F and choose to remove the record. This will delete it and all its subrecords.

Optionals: None
Special Instructions: This mod is already in STEP. It is here as a reminder for you to change settings in the MCM menu.


All you need to survive

None of the following equipment mods are needed for the functionality of the pack but are rather here to provide support patches for them because they are quite popular. A patch is provided if you use all equipment mods. If you want to only use some, please merge your own patch here. Jaysus swords is the only mod that doesn't need any patch.

Complete Crafting Overhaul Remade

Description: Crafting.
Author: kryptopyr
Main files: Complete Crafting Overhaul Remade
Optionals: CCO Compatibility Patch for WAF True Weapons
Special instructions: STEP: Extended users have this mod installed already. Move the mod in the left hand panel so the install order matches that of the STEP guide. LOOT should sort the optional file, CCO Compatibility Patch for WAF True Weapons, right after the main plugin. If it doesn't, place it there manually.

Bash tags

Bash Tagging Guide

  • You Hunger.esp (Delev) (applies to users of the Survival pack)
  • Remove (Relev) from the STEP: Extended/Core patch
  • MUS patches merged.esp (Stats, Delev, Relev)
  • Deleveled Loot Equipment - STEP patch.esp (Delev)
  • Remove (Relev) from Lore Weapon Expansion.esp
  • Remove all bash tags from Faction Crossbows.esp

Rebuild the bashed patch. The lvl list plugins will get merged into the bashed patch. It is now safe to untick them.

Dual Sheath Redux

Run the dual sheath redux patcher that you installed in the STEP guide.

In the settings of the Dual Sheath Redux you can change which biped slots should be used for left and right biped. These can be changed so they do not use the same slot as any other equipment mod does. If the use the same slot, one of them won't show. I recommend changing it to the slots Neovalen (author of both Dual Sheath Redux and the guide/pack Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition) uses since we have several equipment mods in common. Changing biped slots may not be necessary if you are not using immersive armors but it doesn't hurt.

In the patcher settings, choose:

Left Biped Slot: 54
Right Biped Slot: 45
  • Click [Patch]

MCM Settings

To make it more user friendly, here is a collection of all in-game settings, MCM settings and console commands in a goggle doc to make it easy to view them on your phone:
Please take a glance at all MCM configurable mods that you use. There are several settings and tweaks you might want to use that I haven't brought up due to it not being important to what we intend to do with this pack.


This pack used to be a part of a bigger pack that I developed with the help of Nicopad and Garfink. Big thanks to them.
