Still looking for that sex fix during your time at the College? Get Sleep For Credit, the long-awaited companion mod for CDW that adds the fun back in!
College Days: Winterhold is now only available as the clean version.
Doing four versions of it is just too much. But fear not! My new mod Sleep for Credit is available now!
Video killed the Mod Description star (or something). It's in French. Well, not this mod's part.
Anyway, click HERE.
Ever gone to Winterhold to do the Mage quests and then find yourself wondering how it's possible that someone who has been part of the school for all of a week and has no magical skills above Apprentice can become Archmage?
This mod aims to fix that. You will go to the college, meet your instructor, and work your way to archmage-dom.
Upon entering the college in Winterhold you will meet Jordan Mhoram hanging out around the entrance to the Hall of Elements. Speak to him and he will charge you insanely exorbitant fees to take his classes. Upon payment he will provide you with books. As you progress in your spell abilities, you will be able to go back and speak to him again to start the next "semester". Once you have reached Expert level, he will direct you to the various masters of their individual schools in order to do the Master level quests.
You can specialize in one school of magic. As long as at least one of the schools has reached the next higher skill level, you can go back to Mhoram for more books. Technically you reach the apprentice level of a school when it reaches 25. However the minimum spell level (in any school) to get to the second semester in this mod is 30, since some skills start at or near 25 and it would be a tad immersion breaking to advance to the second semester at the same time you started.
Breakdown of semesters and spell levels:
The end of each semester will include a short series of message boxes that will talk about the previous year and what is to come in the future. Rudimentary, and not as cool as cut scenes, but i think they do a pretty good job of adding to the feeling of time having gone by.
This mod is linked to the Vanilla College of Winterhold quests. You will not be able to progress without first gaining appropriate skills.* The break points are these:
You can go to Saarthal immediately. In fact, your instructor will tell you to do so before giving you your first books.
Once you have reached Apprentice level in at least one school of magic, you will be able to do Hitting the Books and Good Intentions.
Once you have reached Adept level in at least one school of magic, you will be able to do Revealing the Unseen and Containment.
Once you have reached Expert level in at least one school of magic, you will be able to go to Labyrinthian for the Staff of Magnus.
It might conflict with mods that edit the Vanilla mage questline, if any such mod exists.
Not a mod conflict, but if you set a school of magic to Legendary, it will make the skill level 15 and this mod will not recognize that it isn't a Novice level skill.
Now fully voiced! Twice! (Choose only one from the download)
There are two different voiced versions of this mod. What happened was this: I requisitioned a voice actor, but he had health and equipment troubles and was unable to complete the job. So I went onto the voice actor's forum and found a sample by Musetrigger that I quite liked. Once he agreed to the job, I sent him the script.
While I was waiting, Connorchamp approached and offered his services. I sent a pm to Muse but did not hear back in a few days (he's a busy guy!), so I told Connor to go ahead. Not many days later, I received samples from BOTH of them, and both said they were nearly done. A conundrum - I didn't want either to feel his work was wasted. So I thanked them both. Very soon afterwards, both came through with final products. They are very different from each other, which is awesome. I have provided samples so you can choose which you prefer.
tl;dr - I am an impatient idiot, but now there are two excellent voiced versions to choose between. Huge thanks and apologies to both.
Patch! If you have Perkus Maximus, grab the patch by SoundofDrums so you get the correct spells.
Highly recommended Nexus companion mod:
College of Winterhold Entry Requirements by TorchicBlaziken
Faralda will really test your abilities to gain entry, instead of letting just any old fool who can make a magelight into the college. Fully voiced from Skyrim's secret "no time to finish the game properly, just cut stuff and ship it" storage bunker!
Note: I have Immersive Winterhold College and it works just fine.
I recommend deleting the old version and installing on a clean save (in as much as such a thing exists) at the very least.
Special thanks to SkyrimLL and murfk for their help getting the sex part to work.
Extra special thanks to PeCool for the Spanish translation!
