=======================================
1. SUMMARY
=======================================
You now have a customizable chance of being shocked (hit by lightning) while walking around outside in a thunderstorm. The actual strike place is random, but will only happen in the cell you're currently in.

=======================================
2. FEATURES
=======================================
The mod has a customizable chance of causing damage to any one in an area of effect while walking in a thunderstorm. The damage and area of effect can be changed by modifying an in game spell or via an included configuration ring. There is a 20 second cool down after a strike to prevent multiple strikes from happening.

=======================================
3. REQUIREMENTS
=======================================
Morrowind and Tribunal due to a script command used to cause the shock damage.

=======================================
4. INSTALLATION
=======================================
Extract the file jac_lightning_strike.esp to your main Data Files folder.
Extract the \Data Files\Meshes\Mireneye folder to your Data Files\Meshes folder. Note that the old lightning mesh is located in the Original lightning bolt\Meshes\Mireneye folder.
Extract the \Data Files\Textures\Mireneye to your Data Files\Texture folder.
Click the mod in the Morrowind Data Files launcher.

The default chance of being hit is 20%. To change this chance, equip the configuration ring.

You can read more information on how to install mods here: http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/inde ... &p=1772866

Note: if you're upgrading, you may receive a warning message about a spell missing. You can safely ignore it, it shouldn't return after the upgrade.

=======================================
5. Using the mod
=======================================
Just install and walk around in a thunderstorm.

=======================================
6. KNOWN ISSUES
=======================================
The spell used has an area effect of 5, which means that it will hit anything nearbye when it "strikes".

Magic and/or shock resistance may negate or reduce the damage done by the strikes. Conversely, weakness to shock may increase the damage done. Those using the Atronach birth sign may find the damage absorbed as magic energy. The actual energy absorbed should be minuscule.

Because this mod uses a shock spell to provide the damage, a shock visual effect is used when a strike hits.

=======================================
7. USE IN OTHER MODS
=======================================
Permission is given to use in another mod, but please give me credit and include this readme. C_Mireneye has given his permission to use the mesh and texture. No credit or contact is needed.

=======================================
8. UNINSTALLATION
=======================================
Uncheck the mod from the Morrowind launcher and click past any error messages about a script, ring or mesh & texture missing.

=======================================
9. CREDITS & THANKS

Fliggerty for helping with the scripting and suggesting the ExplodeSpell command.

How very random of you, Drakk! Good to see you, though. This is one of my favorite of Jac's mods, too. This one and one he made for me to stop my targets from psychically knowing when I've accepted a writ to assassinate them. Now, if I can just convince that guard in Dagon Fel I didn't steal that fork from Arrille's Tradehouse, I'd be set. ;)
