Sick of how drastically your stats drop when you first realize you are a little peckish?
This is a super simple mod that slightly lowers the ratio at which your needs in survival mode reduce your health, magicka, and stamina bars (penalties decrease at 30% of the speed of vanilla survival mode). Your needs will still affect you the same in other ways, there will just be a slower decay of your stats. Easy.
I made this because I felt early on that my first pangs of hunger dropped my stamina too much, first realizing I could use some sleep dropped my magicka too much, and my first shivers of being chilly dropped my health too much. I couldn't find any existing mods to make the first level of each not lower your stats, so I opened the Creation Kit and found that I could modify how quickly your stats lower.
You're the Dragonborn, you shouldn't be crippled by being slightly hungry.
This needs all the Skyrim Special Edition stuff plus the survival mode plugin, obviously.
There are weirdly few mods that alter survival mode out so far, at least as far as I can find. There is one that I like, though it reduced penalties to the point where eating and sleeping felt like occasional annoyances rather than vital needs. That one is Lenient Survival by Raosing, if anyone is interested in it.
This is my first "mod," if you can call tweaking 3 values in the Creation Kit a mod. Hopefully there will be more to come in the future.
