Arrowsmith: Vanilla Edition v.3d

Description
Arrowsmith allows you to craft arrows in bundles of 50.

** Dawnguard DLC Users: READ THIS! **
The Vanilla Edition works with Dawnguard, but you should use the Dawnguard Edition instead.

Do not use both editions at the same time.

Invincible Hawk Fix is now built in to Arrowsmith but still available separately.

If you're looking for new arrows with special effects, check out Wweezzyy's Hellion Arrows.

HOW TO INSTALL

FAQ
Q: Where do I get Fletchings?
A: See the Recipes section below.

Q: How do I pluck Chicken Feathers?
A: Target a living chicken and press your Use/Activate key (E by default) as if you were trying to talk to them. You can also kill chickens and loot the feathers, but the villagers generally don't like that.

Q: Nothing happens when I press the Use/Activate key on a living chicken.
A: There are several possibile fixes:
Fix 1: Leave the area (fast travel) and come back. This will force the chicken(s) in the area to reload with the new plucking script attached to them. This mainly happens when you load a save that already had non-pluckable chickens loaded (eg. loaded it immediately after installing the mod).
Fix 2: Disable other mods that also modify chickens or re-order the load order so that Arrowsmith takes priority. Any mod that modifies the EncChicken actor or ChickenRace race will conflict with Arrowsmith.
Fix 3: One user reported that unsubscribing from the mod and then re-subscribing made it work.

Q: I don't see the Fletchings option at the tanning rack.
A: You need at least one of the materials (feathers) for it to appear.
Reason: It's similar to leather in that there are multiple ways to make leather (different animal hides) so most of them are hidden unless you have one of the materials.

Q: Why do hawks disappear when I shoot them?
A: Your Object Fade/View Distance is too low. Turn it up in the launcher settings or the game settings.
Reason: Hawks are moving world objects rather than normal NPCs/actors. The game replaces the hawk with a lootable object (container) when you shoot it. If your object view distance is low, you won't be able to see the newly spawned object unless you are close to where it falls.

Q: Why doesn't my HUD's equipped arrow count update when I make new arrows?
A: This is a known bug that I haven't been able to figure out how to fix. It's present in Dawnguard without mods as well (even the 360 version too) and not specific to this mod.

Q: Can you remove the perk requirements?
A: I will not, but you can using the Creation Kit if you want.

Q: Will you add _____ arrows?
A: I will not add arrows that aren't already in the game, such as Dragon Arrows.
Arrows that are already in the game, but not in this mod (Forsworn, Falmer, etc) won't be added either.
This mod is meant to fit the existing smithing design and not add random things.

Q: Can I translate this mod to another language?
A: Yes, but the mod must be uploaded to Steam Workshop, credit must be given to me for the original version.

Q: It's called fletching / fletcher.
A: I know. The name is intentional.

Q: What about arrows from the Dragonborn DLC?
A: I might make a mod for it, similar to the Dawnguard Edition, but it's not a high priority as Dragonborn only adds 2 craftable arrows.

Q: Will you upload this mod to Nexus?
A: No.

CHANGE LOG
  • v.3d - 19 Aug 2012
    • Iron, Steel, and Ancient Nord arrows now require Fletchings, as Fletchings are easier to obtain now.
    • All Firewood requirements reduced to 2 Firewood per 50 arrows/bolts (down from 5 Firewood).
    • Nord Hero Arrows now require 100 Ancient Nord Arrows (down from 250 AN Arrows).

  • v.3c - 01 Aug 2012
    • Hawks are no longer invincible (separate invincible hawk fix mod no longer needed)
    • Chicken plucking reworked:
      • They now have a "talk" prompt like normal NPCs.
      • Talking to them brings up their inventory so you can loot feathers.
      • They regrow feathers at a rate of 1 feather per day and can have a maximum of 12 feathers.
        (They stop growing feathers at 12 but will start growing again if you loot them.)
      • And just for fun, they also squawk when you pluck them.

  • v.3b - 12 Feb 2012
    • Bundle of Fletchings has been renamed to Fletchings. (Don't worry, you won't lose the ones you have.)
    • Chicken Feathers added. They can be plucked from chickens every 3 in-game days or looted off their dead bodies.
    • Vendors now have a chance to sell Fletchings and Chicken Feathers.
    • Ancient Nord Arrows require one less Iron Ingot.
    • To address complaints about the ingots weighing down the player, Nord Hero Arrows now require less heavy ingots, but more weightless arrows.

  • v.3a - 07 Feb 2012
    • Minor header error fixed by Creation Kit.
    • Published to Steam Workshop.

  • v.3 - 22 Nov 2011
    • Menus fixed. For example, Orcish Arrows now appear in the Orcish section of the smithing menu.
    • Added recipe for Ancient Nord Bow.
    • Feathers re-worked. Arrows now require a Bundle of Fletchings, which can be made at the tanning rack using 3 Hawk Feathers, 3 Hagraven Feathers, or 3 Quills.

  • v.2a - 21 Nov 2011
    • Fixed formIDs (hopefully) that might have caused random bugs.

  • v.2 - 18 Nov 2011
    • All recipes requirements re-balanced. Most now require hawk feathers and make 50 arrows.
    • Added Ancient Nord Arrow recipe.

  • v.1 - 17 Nov 2011
    • Initial Release

Thanks man keep at it
castlebaydad Oct 1, 2014 @ 4:12pm 
either 24 or 50 arrows at a time. I have another mod that includes arrow smithing. I think its Ebonsteel Dragon bone armor.
Deathbowyer Sep 29, 2014 @ 6:26am 
Oh yeah... Thanks!
Samutz  [author] Sep 29, 2014 @ 5:03am 
@Deathbowyer The same as anything else. I don't set the amount in the mod, the game sets it based on the item value. If you use any sort of smithing overhaul mods that changes this, then I have no way of knowing.
Deathbowyer Sep 28, 2014 @ 11:42pm 
How much Smithing XP do you get each time you craft arrows, if at all?
castlebaydad Sep 23, 2014 @ 6:16pm
