Description
The Thalmor have found some old Dwemer schematics and are rebuilding the Dwemers most fearsome weapons - automatic crossbows! Scouts have found that they have converted Reachwind Eyrie, a Dwemer tower southeast of Markarth and northeast of Dushnikh Yal, into a research outpost. Can you stop them before it's too late?

Please note that I can't create new models so don't request any. - If you want Van Hellsing's crossbow then create the models for it yourself.

CONTENT:
This mod adds 3 automatic Dwemer crossbows to the game;
Dwemer Cheiroballistra, a heavy semi automatic crossbow.
Dwemer Polybolos, a light burst firing automatic crossbow. Hold down your mouse when you are firing this weapon otherwise you will reload it.
Automatic Dwemer Crossbow, a fully automatic crossbow.

You can find them and some schematics for them (except from the automatic one, Dwarven Smithing perk needed) at Reachwind Eyrie. All crossbows can be used by any NPC.
This mod is also intented as a modder resource, feel free to use the included scripts to create your own automatic weapons!
I hope that you find the crossbows balanced, otherwise please let me know.

_____________________________________________________

You need to unpack the BSA archive to get the scripts, use BSAOpt or download the mod from SkyrimNexus.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN AUTOMATIC CROSSBOWS
1) Load up your mod as the active file (or create a new one) and j3x-autocrossbows.esp
2) Create copies of J3XCrossbowAutoSpell and J3XCrossbowAutoEffect, let's call them (1) and (2)
3) Make sure (1) is refering to (2) as it's effect.
4) Attach J3XCrossbowAutoScript to a crossbow of your choise, set the crossbowSpell property to (1).
5) Depending on the type of firing mechanics you want, change the script attached to (2) to another one.
5) Edit the properties of the script attached to (2) so it matches the desired clip size and firing speed.
6) Done! - Save and try it out!

Ok thanks
J3X  [author] Dec 8 @ 4:26pm 
No, that one is just included for demo since it has no custom model.
Mandrex Cashman Dec 8 @ 3:29pm 
Can you craft more full auto crossbows? I can't find the blueprints.
J3X  [author] Dec 8 @ 10:59am 
Yes, if you have taken the blueprints. Inside the tower.
Mandrex Cashman Dec 7 @ 6:48pm 
Is it possible to craft more crossbows? Also where is the full auto crossbow?
J3X  [author] Nov 30 @ 2:51pm 
Glad that it works.
ok i checked the data files and that was the problem thanks
J3X  [author] Nov 30 @ 12:05pm 
Yes, but is the box checked so the mod loads when the game starts?
[LVI] Centurion Curius Scipio Nov 30 @ 11:10am
