Note: This page does not contain information specific to any mod list. In order to see mod list specific information use one of the mod list links listed above where it says "Featured in Mod Lists".
See this wiki page for more detailed notes about this patch. The version linked to from the wiki contains a script error, the version I am hosting has been edited to fix the error (Open the original plugin with OpenMW-CS and select File >> Verify, which will open a pane that displays all warnings and errors. The specific script error can be seen here).
NOTE TO NCGD USERS: If you are following a list, then the list order will have you covered. If you aren't following a list, please be sure to also use Magicka Based Skill Progression - Better Sounds - ncgdMW Compatible - Class-Spec Benefit Fix, which fixes this problem: This plugin conflicts with Natural Character Growth and Decay - MW and Magicka Based Skill Progression - ncgdMW Compatility Version such that your character's Destruction skill will not level up.
