Description:

The new Natural Grow leveling mod, only for OpenMW.

  • Your attributes grow automatically as your skills increase.
  • Your skills and attributes can grow past 100, but...
  • It becomes increasingly difficult to increase your skills the farther past 100 you go.
  • Your skills will also decay over time. (Optional)

NOTE: I'm getting reports that this mod is broken on the latest unreleased builds of OpenMW 0.48. If you want to use this mod, please stick to using OpenMW 0.47 which is still known to be fully compatible with this mod. In the future I would like to try and released a patched version of this mod that will work again, but it would have reduced functionality (namely: no attributes or skills over 100, since that's the feature that's broken by OpenMW 0.48). It's also extremely likely that I'll make an OpenMW-Lua version once that's possible.

I'm hosting a patched version of this mod, download that file from the link above instead of the one from Nexus mods.

Also available is this version, which defaults to fast decay and slow growth without a menu prompt after character generation; nice if you like these settings and don't want to be bothered by the menu. This patched version was produced by me, your friendly site admin (with notes in the MWScript).

The source code for this mod can be found here, Delta Plugin is required to build from source.
