Skyrim Console Convenience Pack

In mods by Myrddin63 Comments

If you have been working with the Skyrim console you realize that some tasks are super tedious. For example adding perks, removing perks. Noone wants to type in 50000 hex codes and here is where this little utiliy come in!

Convenience Pack, what is it?

The Skyrim console is a very nice and powerful tool to modify the game, however it is also quite complicated to use. I have covered many console commands here. But there is just so much stuff displayed which encouraged me to make things more convenient to use.

Basically I am using a set of commands in a Skyrim batch file which is doing the typing for you. Instead of adding 10 player perks you just run “bat add-restoration” and your char learns the restoration perks. You have some perks in Archery that you want to get rid off? Type “bat del-archery” and they will all be removed (You won’t be granted new perk points however) without you having to type every single id.

Here is a list of current commands and what they do:

Items

  • add-spell-tomes : places all tomes in your inventoryadd-spell-tomes

    use “bat add-spell-tomes” to run this this command
  • add-melee-weapons : adds Draedric melee weapons (one-handed/two-handed/dragonbane)add-melee-weapons

    use “bat skills-100” to run this this command
  • skills-20 : sets all skills to 20skills-20

    use “bat skills-20” to run this this command

      You extract them into your Skyrim directory, where the Launcher and the TESV.exe resides. Be sure to type the names properly.

  1. @Myrddin
    Ok. so i have to download that, extract the files in the skyrim directory and than?

  2. Nothing ! I have all the text files in the The Elderscrolls V Skyrim folder and nothing , bat file not found !

  3. Im getting an access denied i know why i just dont know how to fix it any ideas?

  4. .. All these questions and no ” Thank you ! ” …

    Thank you for the post. A very nifty tool.

      Haha, thanks, wondered already if it was working at all for others 😀 Thanks, appreciate the feedback!

      1. Welcome, buddy 🙂 And yes, indeed, the script works perfectly fine. Didn’t run into any problems of any kind.

          1. Downloaded once more ( Didn’t notice the speech perk being absent in the first place, since I already increased that one from the start. ) Thanx once more, Myrddin.

    2. Because People Are Having Too Much Fun Using The Awesome Tool He Made.

  5. Thanks for the bat files! You’ve made it much easier to get the perks I want with my character, without worrying about running out, and you’ve saved me the time of typing out the text myself.

  6. Just to say a big Thank You !

    It worked very great and saved me a lot of time.

    Really god job !

    1. Getting the following error::

      Syntax Error. Reference not allowed in this context.
      Missing parameter String.

      Compiled Script not saved!

      Any ideas?

  7. Yeah I’m getting the No bat file found or cannot be opened. So….that sucks 🙁 guess its time to hand type all of these things.

      Hiya, if you could supply a bit more information, then I could try to make it work for you! Which command were you trying to do? Did you copy the files into the correct folder?

  8. del-pick-pocket.txt is broken- need to add spaces. Copy/paste error Im assuming 🙂

    I made some nice batch files for adding perk points. Since there’s no console command for it, I basically
    1) Set level to 1
    2) set all skills to 1
    3) player.incpcs everything to 100

    Then you can go thru and take all the levels and get a ton of perks.

      @David Affinito
      Just depends on how you want to add stuff. I don’t like fiddling around with skills, since you need to reset them and also your level to have the reamining feel of “progression” while playing with a modified game. I like to create a char, add the pers I like and then the shouts, spellbooks and take it from there. Hence this solution works fine for me. There is no command to set perk points to a special value, if that becomes available the add stuff here is obsolete.

  9. Ok got it working. I had to delete it out of the folder and add it agian 🙂 thanks for the quick perks.

  10. Instead of using the setav commands for skills, you should use incpcs, as it still gives the player experience.

      @Mquesay
      No, since depending on the current skill level, there is a different amount of increases required, I have explained this above. You can use a simple search and replace if you prefer to change the command.

  11. the shouts are unlocked ,but with one word only..any batch for mastering all shouts?

    1. Author

      You need to use Dragonsouls, just as you would normally, to unlock the shouts, the script adds enough Dragonsouls.

    1. wat does expected end of the line compiled script not saved mean?

      @Lio
      I’d really like to help, but “the console command” is not nearly precise enough. If you are telling me which command exactly you are typing then I can launch my Skyrim and check for errors.

  12. it works now guess it hat set in but i have a question about another bug in the game thats really troublesome i cnt store items on people or in barrels or other storage its like drop is non existant when it comes to containers or people

  13. Man this has got to be alot of work,definitely makes it easier for me. Thanks for your dedication and immense patience

  14. Just a suggestion; do you think you could edit the batch files so that they can be used for followers? I’d do it myself but I’m too lazy! xD

  15. Hey I love this pack good job, just one question is there a way to add 1 of each type enchantment?

  16. this skyrim part two is better than the first one and one thing some of this stuff all you people i don’t know some of this all of you put on here don’t i don’t understand

  17. Hey dude thanks very much for these bat files they have saved me so much work. Thanks for putting in the time and sharing it with the Skyrim gamers!! 🙂

  18. will this give us shouts included in the DLCs or is this just base game? Very nice tool btw

    1. Author

      I haven’t touched Skyrim in a while, so this is just the basic version of the shouts, sorry for the inconvenience.

  19. Where do I put the file if I have this game installed via Steam?!?!? Rookie question….I know.

    1. Author

      In your game directory, depends on which version of the game you have I suppose. You can try to find the “TESV.exe” file and then put the files in the same directory 🙂

      How to find files in Windows

  20. dude it does not work, the bat add-archery works but the commands wont work i wont get 100 in all stats

  21. Im not really good with computers if i could get a step by step to get them to work that would be really helpful
