Skyrim Utility Mod (LE) 3.3.3 [December 6, 2023]

1 Screenshot

About This File


First, this mod (SUM) is a framework for all my other mods. This is to eliminate a lot of redundancy between all my mods.

Understandably, that makes this mod a dependency for all my mods. However, I have added a few features to this, that should justify the extra load order slot. Certain restrictions apply. Ask your doctor if SUM is right for you.



  • Required Mods


Zaz Animation Pack


SkyUI (5.1 or later)


  • Optional Mods

UI Extensions (UIE) 

Devious Devices - Equip

Prison Overhaul Patched

Wider MCM (Allows for more visible text in the MCM.)



Install it using your favorite mod manager.


Installation Steps

   1. Install ‘SUM’.
   2. Install the latest ‘SUM - UIE Patch’ available in the download section, only if you have UIE installed already.


Uninstallation Steps

   1. Uninstall ‘SUM - UIE Patch’ if installed.
   2. Uninstall ‘SUM’.


Updating to the Latest Version

   1. Follow ‘Uninstallation Steps’, for the existing version. 
   2. Follow ‘Installation Steps’, for the new version. 



For example, given version No. 1.2.3

A change in,

3 -> Patch, can be installed on the previous version (uninstall the old, then install the new version).

2 -> Content update, clean save is recommended. 

1 -> Major update, clean save required, new save recommended. 



(More details in post No. 2)

ZAP posing system. 
This is using the MCM and the UI Extensions (if installed) to store and use potentially all poses available in ZAP. It does this by using .json files to store all (entered) poses, then the MCM and/or UI Extensions mod to access and use the poses on the PC and NPCs.


Faction Management
With this feature the player can manage all PC and NPC factions. The factions will be listed in the MCM. There the player can change faction ranks and/or membership. 


Skills Transfer 
Have you ever though to yourself “... I sure would like to try some new mod that just came out, but then I found out that it requires a new save, and to top it off a level 66 PC?” Neither have I; nevertheless, with this feature you can transfer skills between all your PCs. Yes you’ve guess it, it is all done through the MCM. There you can save and transfer skills, spells, inventory and factions between your PCs, you can even share them with your friends. Nothing sweeter than a digital sweetroll, no? Yum... yum!  


StorageUtil Page
This is useful for troubleshooting mods that use the StorageUtil mod variables. 


Game Stats Management
With this feature each game and actor stat can be viewed and modified individually in the MCM.


Form Lists Page
With this feature form lists can be created by clicking/selecting objects in game. Form lists can contain locations, furniture, doors, misc objects, etc.

The list name is inconsequential.

  • Added .::. More MCM options wheel shortcut keywords. See post No. 2 for details.

For example, if in one save you have a container full of books, and a container full of weapons, you can move(duplicate) the contents of these two containers to two different containers in the same save or a new save.
