Dwarven Condenser

Update: The staff's enchantment now lasts longer.

1. Custom Model with animation for an exciting and unique addition to the game.
2. Custom enchantment that fires the Dwarven Steam Breath
3. Balanced and effected for mid-game to late-game play (will make adjustments as needed)
4. Hand-Placed in the world with custom notes to explain the lore behind the object (locations at end of post, to avoid spoilers)

1. The steam effect disappears after using it for a certain amount of time (a second or two).
2. It gets a little wonky in kill cams, but this seems to be a problem with Skyrim, as most spells that shoot a damaging stream (like flames) seem to have this problem.

Future Plans:
New Texture

The video is by insane0hflex on YouTube, he does mod videos and I included the video so you could see the animation. A big thanks to insane0hflex.

This is the first mod I made and eventually I plan to do a lot more with the model, but for now I am happy with this version and while I want to do more with this staff it will likely be a separate mod.

Note: The steam disappearing is a problem with the original steam effect and I have yet to find a single modder who has found the source and/or fixed it. I did fix a few problems that others ignored though, like the sounds cutting out, and am overall proud of my work adapting the effect to the staff. I think I narrowed the source of the issue to the steam effect's nif (referenced in the projectile file for the dwarven steam breath) so if anyone who is experienced with nifs would like to check it out that would be great. Also, the current texture is a placeholder and if any experienced texture artists would like to do a texture for it (mainly the spinning bits need work) I can give you the correct texture files to do one (the current version uses the wrong template, but I am a terrible artist and it looks ok enough until I can get a new one).

1. The Museum in Markarth, for thief types.
2. Blackreach, at the throne above the dwemer city in there
3. Treva's Watch, in a room at the top of a spiral stair case, by an enchanter.

@scarlettcarson11 Hey there! The warning you saw was because I'd forgotten to put a space before the start of the link, which broke it :( I fixed the link now and you'll notice that it's perfectly safe and now properly leads to my other mod. Thanks for pointing that out!

ok this is something i never thought i would have to do but seeing as it just happened to me i feel i need to do this so hee goes: AVOID this modders mods as steam linked me to a page saying they think his "other mod" is malicious aka will steal your steam account info. now then NOT having used this mod or any of his other stuff i cant and wont comment on it but seeing as steam supports modders and features their work its highly likely to be a good thing that they warn people againt this. so again i say this (not as a troll just a shocked mod user) AVOID THIS MODDERS WORK AT ALL COSTS. you have been warned and for those not beliving me try linking to his other mod listed at the bottom of the page / see what happens and call me a liar

@Oraln just do a spoiler waring, and post a link to the screenshots. If you going to tell us to look at a wiki, give a link.

Ah! A Dwarven Steam weapon that doesn't require downloading the massive Blackreach Railroad and fighting that huge ass Centurion! Thanks a lot for making this mod Oraln!

If you need to find the locations, look them up on the wiki, I will not provide screenshots because I do not want to spoil finding them for anyone.
