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?

Automatic Crossbows 0.2.1
by J3X & Rizing

!!! DAWNGUARD REQUIRED !!!
!!! WORKS WITHOUT SKSE !!!

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!

How does it fire multiple bolts when there is only one string that doesn't fire until the last bolt?

Take a look at the road near the tower, sometimes the patroll wanders off.
