Better Silver Sword Damage

Basically, this simple mod increases the damage of the one-handed Silver Sword and the two-handed Silver Greatsword. The damage value of the Silver Sword was increased from 8 to 12, and the Silver Greatsword from 17 to 22. I wanted them to fit in with the lore, without making them overpowered. While not as powerful as Dragon Bone, they are a more viable weapon choice than before. Since in-game werewolf hunters use silver swords, I thought that they should have better weapons to use against such strong foes; Silver has also been powerful against undead in many previous Elder Scrolls games. DLC is not necessary. Let me know if there are any significant bugs/errors.

Nighteyes here has a very interesting point, make the silver weapons do 2x 3x or even 4x damage to the undead that way they can still be meh against the living but an essential versus the undead

so the onehander was increased roughly 50%. and the twohander only increased 30%. it will be interesting to compare the actual in-use damage with sharpening and skill in play.

One thing never brought up, instead of changing the weapon damage, why not alter the power of the 'effective against undead' enchant that they have inately? that way they are still 'meh' versus living things.

The best option would be adding weapon variants with silver inlays which have lower base damage but a damage multiplier bonus against undead and werewolves. Sadly, that would be a lot of work.

I agree Silver Sword was nerfed compared to say Morrowind. THese should always be some of the best weapons against the undead.
