I saw this mod http://www.nexusmods...rim/mods/6570/? Player leveling overhaul. Thought the idea was good. However, this mod hasn't been updated in 5 years. It also states that skills can only increase with trainers.
Spent some time thinking about immersive leveling. There are some that require you to rest to level or spend perk points. This isn't immersive enough. Especially for a SkyRealism mod set up.
My thoughts were skills do increase as you use them, but instead of just magically leveling up mid fight (which has saved me many times) to level up you must rest like previously stated, like results from work out recovery. Perk points can only be spent by visiting a trainer for that skill which requires more money based on level, friendly discounts apply. For example, I took martial arts. Had to pay monthly. My kicks and punches improved with practice and use, my teacher didn't advance me to learn more techniques, attacks and defenses until I was ready. Maybe to make it easier, leveling up base stats can be done by visiting the trainer you're training your perk points with.
I feel like this is more logical in terms of leveling and function for trainers.
Levels can still stack, if you're on a long adventure and have considerably improved skills.
I would love to make it, tho I don't have any basic knowledge of modding, besides snaggin them and pluggin into MO and resolving conflicts
Please share your thoughts.
