Description
100% Conflict Free! Dawnguard required.

Why weren't crossbows added to normal forging, purchasing, and spawning in the game? I can't think of a good reason, so let's go ahead and do that.

You can now craft Crossbow, Steel Bolt, Dwarven Crossbow, and Dwarven Bolt at any forge. The only requirement is having Steel Smithing or Dwarven Smithing perks.

You still must complete Ancient Technology to unlock exploding bolts and enhanced crossbows. This was done so that Ancient Technology still has rewards. Exploding Bolts can be crafted at any forge now like crossbows and normal bolts.

Crossbow, Steel Bolt, Dwarven Crossbow, and Dwarven Bolt can now be found at shops all over Skyrim and on spawned NPCs. Exploding bolts and enhanced crossbows still are only available from crafting or purchasing from Sorine. Crossbows and bolts are a little bit rarer than bows and arrows, and they won't appear on things like Forsworn or Falmer where it wouldn't make sense. They're mostly found with bandits, guards, and soldiers.


There you go. Very simple and does only what Dawnguard should have always done without adding anything else. Why make this when other similar mods exist? Well, this doesn't add in new crossbow types and doesn't negate the rewards of the Ancient Technology quest. It also doesn't conflict with other mods at all, ever. Nothing similar to this that's available can claim that.

I mentioned on a recently popular crossbow mod called Faction Crossbows and I have to ask, will this give Crossbows to the appropriate factions or will it just be randomly all over Skyrim? The fact that some spawn with Dwemer crossbows is kinda annoying as it feels like an easy way to get a more OP character. Bolts I would be fine with, just not the entire crossbow.

Crossbows should be a little less common among bandits, soldiers and guards. I've seen like 5 archers since I got this, everyone has a crossbow... seriously, some stormcloak had a crossbow at helgen...

They're totally compatible. This mod doesn't actually change any game files. It adds new recipes for crafting items that do use existing perks, but doesn't change those perks themselves in any way.

Dumb question, but is this compatible with your smithing tree mod? I mean since that changes the perks and this requires Steel Smithing and Dwarven Smithing.

Would you be willing to make a version for Ubersmaug's crossbows? They're not too powerful, so they'd be perfect for this. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=125036397
