Destructible bottles v1.4

What it does:
This mod will make all alcohol bottles smash in pieces when hit,leaving a debris of broken glass that will stay until you pick it up or be removed automatically after some time that you can configure as you like(Note: autocleaning procedure will NOT be applied on the broken bottles that you drop from your inventory).
Be careful what you break, people will not appreciate you making disorder in public areas such as inns, guildhalls or their home. You can be caught and put in jail for this act of vandalism, even if the bottles you break belong to you.
You can also grab broken bottle(usually ‘Z’ button, or by holding activate button) and stab someone with it. Works only for wine bottles. Mead bottles are too small and too bulky to hold it in your hand.
Even better, you can recycle your glass in the foundry and fabricate new empty wine bottle.(No mead empty bottles yet)
Note for sneaky characters, enemies can hear the noise of the smashed bottle.
Currently works for all kind of wines, meads, ale and empty wine bottles.

Latest version 1.4 is now availible!

Version 1.4 changes:

-Reworked the system of the glass debris manegement. You can now configure the lifetime of the broken bottles and still be able to pick it up.

-No more unpunished vandalisme, people will get angry and may call the guards if they see you doing mess in public areas or their home.

-Now you can grab broken bottle and stab someone with it.

-Now you can melt your glass and make new empty bottles.

-Modified weights of some bottles to be more credible.

Recommended to uninstal older version, and clean save before v1.4 istallation
1:Unpack the contents of the archive to your “Skyrim\Data\“ folder.
2:Check esp file in mod manager.
3:Run Skyrim
By default broken glass debris lifetime is set to 24 hours game-time. To change it, while in game toggle the console by pressing “~” and type in command line set CleanUpTimer to #num# replacing #num# by a number of in game hours you wish(be reasonable). That’s it, savegame and play.

Dawnguard is not required.

Load order::

If you use any other mods that modify alcohols or empty bottles be sure to load destructible_bottles.esp the last otherwise it might not work.

Useful information:

Bottles can be broken by :
-Smashing with a melee weapon
-Shooting with bow
-Most of the destruction spells (including draconic powers such as firebreath etc)
-Hitting with you bare hands
-Unrelenting force shout*

Bottles can not be broken by:
-violent collision
-All other shouts and non offensive spells

*Note: Unrelenting power can explode the bottles but there is still a good chance that a bottle survive and will be just pushed away. Explosive power of you thu'um will need some space to work properly.

On my pretty old PC I didn’t notice any performances impact. But keep in mind that every glass shard is a little mesh with its own collision data, so your CPU will have some extra work to do.
In case if you spawn thousands of bottles through the command line in the small room and cast a blizzard spell, I take no responsibility of what will happen.

Have fun

make houses and trees destructible so that planting plants and rebuilding buildings can become a part of the game also if you do make the building in cities compatible with open cities
